With a mere $1,259.95, you can now buy a professional camera drone from the Apple Store.

Called the DJI Phantom 3, it shoots 4K video with a bottom mounted 12 megapixel camera, has a 3-axis stabilization system, and you can run it all from your iPhone or its own remote controller.

You know, for all those legal drone shots you want to take.

The drone maker, based in China, is the world’s leader in drones, bringing in about $8 billion annually.

The Phantom isn’t the first drone Apple’s got at its retail outlet, but it’s the first serious one with the hefty specs of a professional drone, including flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters above sea level with a 23 minute flight battery. Other available drones like the Parrot AR Drone, look and work much more like toys.

This remote looks pretty darn cool, too.
