A great starter drone for new flyers 

The Alpha Z Pro is a dual-camera quadcopter you can control from your smartphone. Simply connect your phone to the drone via WiFi, mount it on the included remote, and you can maneuver with four control channels: ascending and descending, backward and forward, and left and right.

You can also perform cool aerial tricks like 360-degree rolls, which will appear like you’re riding at the front of a rollercoaster on screen. While you have total control over the flight, the Alpha Z Pro’s six-axis gyroscope ensures smooth movements and prevents the video from getting too shaky.

You can snap photos and record video from either of the Alpha Z Pro’s cameras while airborne. The front has a 4K wide-angle camera with 90 degrees of adjustment, whereas the bottom 720p sensor is excellent for sweeping shots from above. You can activate altitude hold mode for stable recording up to 300 feet in the air. 

This drone offers up to nine minutes of flight time off a single charge and comes with two batteries. Once your first battery runs low, you can hail the Alpha Z Pro back to you using the one-key automatic return and switch to a fresh battery for another nine minutes of recording. Finally, you can fold the drone for easy, safe portability after it lands.
