Foldable RC Holy Stone HS160 Shadow Drone FPV with 720P HD Wi-Fi Camera Live Video Quadcopter plus Bonus Battery

The Holy Stone HS160 Shadow Drone is a pretty futuristic looking drone that’s sure to appeal to the style junkies. Its controller offers beginners a better experience for their first drone. All the smart features are in one place instead of opposite sides of the controller.
While most drones feature large propellers with air guards, the Shadow’s arms are foldable and could almost pass for a smartphone itself.

For a drone of this size and camera quality, it’s well priced at just under a hundred dollars. Holy Stone HS160 Shadow Drone has a 720p nose-mounted camera. It’s not the best quality in the world but you’ll be able to see clearly, especially when you use a VR headset to fly it. This nose-mounted camera is not too much different than drones with camera mounted underside of them. On the plus side, if your drone doesn’t have landing gear, the camera won’t be the first thing that impacts the ground should it crash belly first.

Its flight time is a little lacking between 7-9 minutes, so you should have a plan of what you’re going to do with it before it takes off. It comes with an extra battery and they both recharge in around an hour. This more or less compensate for the shorter flight time.

Features of Holy Stone HS160 Shadow Drone

For its price and size, the Shadow really surprises us with a number of intricate and smart features. For nighttime flying, the drone also has four onboard LED lights to help you see in the dark.
4 Speed Modes: The Shadow allows four different speeds to impress beginner, intermediate, and experienced pilots.
Gravity Sensor: When using the smartphone to transmit the live feed, the drone will follow the direction of the smartphone (whichever way you move it).
Altitude Control: Holds the drone at its current altitude. Perfect for taking stable and level photos/videos.
The Shadow is comparable to the DJI Spark and Parrot Bebop 2, drones of similar design and capability. These two drones are small and also feature nose-mounted cameras (with much higher quality). The biggest difference is price and number of smart features. The Shadow is far cheaper while the Spark and Bebop 2 have more abilities and longer battery life.
The Shadow compensates for the short battery life with extra batteries that recharge relatively quickly.
