Apple just keeps adding new features to the iPhone camera, but don’t count on Cupertino introducing wings so you can capture aerial footage. For that, you need a camera drone like the Ninja Dragon Blade X Pro.

It offers simple flight controls so you can easily capture crisp 4K footage. And it’s on sale for $85.99 (regularly $169) for a limited time.

Take to the skies using your iPhone

The easy-to-fly drone features one-touch takeoff and landing, which you can control straight from your iPhone. It even comes with a remote that you can slip your phone in. Just load the app and press a button — the Blade X Pro will take off automatically, ready for command. Press the button again, and it’ll land without crashing.

Speaking of collisions, the Blade X Pro features a three-sided obstacle avoidance system and six-axis gyroscope, which keep the drone level and away from danger. You can set waypoints to ensure your drone hits its marks. Recording controls are built into the app as well, so you can start shooting with just a few taps.

Once you’re in the air, you can get sharp footage using the front-facing 4K camera, or you can use the 720p rear camera to lead your subject and film from multiple angles. With up to 490 feet of range and up to 15 minutes of flight time on a single charge, getting bird’s-eye shots is easy.

Want to film on the go? The Blade X Pro folds into a tight package for easy transport. Simply stash it in the included carrying case, which also has room for the remote, spare blades and protection frames.

The kit also comes with a charging cable, so you can charge the drone on the go using a power bank. Plus, the battery is modular, so you can power up when your drone isn’t in use and switch to a fresh battery (not included) for additional flight time
