In case you haven’t looked up in the sky lately, you should know that this past year has been a big one for drones. You don’t have to keep track of all the amazing innovations happening on the cutting edge to know that it all boils down to one thing for regular users: It’s getting a lot more affordable to own some truly impressive drone tech.

Case in point: The Ninja Dragon Alpha Z, which comes outfitted with twin hi-resolution cameras — and is available for less than $100.

Capture your surroundings in stunning 4K

Whether you’re looking for a way to capture pro-level footage or just pull off some amazing aerial tricks, this is a solid piece of precision machinery. It comes with a stationary 720p bottom camera for fly-by shots and a 4K wide-angle front-mounted cam with 90 degrees of rotation. Between the two of them, you can get panoramic views from dizzying heights, all viewable in real time on your iPhone, thanks to the companion app.

The best part? You don’t have to be a professional camera operator or drone pilot to get these shots. The Alpha Z’s controls are incredibly intuitive, with a six-axis gyroscope that keeps the drone steady and responsive. It can stop and hover, hold its altitude, and even steady itself before launch, thanks to its “headless” flying mode.

You can get a solid seven minutes or more of flying time on each charge. Plus, bringing the battery up to full takes about an hour. When it’s time to retrieve the drone, you can call it back to its starting point with a single click — it will guide itself home.

Take flight with a 4K drone

The Ninja Dragon Alpha Z Pro 4K wide-angle dual-camera drone comes with a transmitter and charging cable, and it’s now available for $99.99 — a full 50% off the original MSRP.
