Update: Amazon’s sold out, but third party seller Battery Superstore has it for $44.
If you’ve caught drone fever, but don’t have $1,000 to spend on a DJI Phantom, Amazon will sell you a basic camera-equipped quadcopter today for just $39.
It should go without saying that this isn’t a professional tool by any means. The camera only shoots 720p, and the results look like something that might have come out of a 2009-era smartphone (here’s a sample video). But hey, it’s a camera in the sky for under $40! Even if you don’t want it for yourself, this could be an awesome holiday gift. [Syma X5C Quadcopter, $39]
