This model is a perfect choice for anyone who's interested in capturing crystal clear footage in the sky. It's equipped with a 4K HD camera featuring a 120-degree wide-angle lens that can capture stunning photos and record video; you'll even be able to watch in real time as the drone flies through the sky using an app on your smartphone or tablet.

Using the app, you'll also have the ability to draw a flight path for your drone to follow, while another mode utilizes GPS tracking on your smartphone so that the drone automatically follows and captures you on-the-go. With its built-in GPS positioning system, you'll know exactly where the drone is at any given moment and have the ability to make it automatically return to you with the press of a button. The drone's 1200mAh high-performance battery can keep it in the air for up to 16 minutes at a time.

Eachine's E520S drone is quite easy to fly too, as several features have been added to make it simple for just about anyone to become its pilot. Headless mode lets it fly any direction you choose no matter which direction the drone is facing, while altitude hold allows it to stay hovering in the air without much guidance from you for more stable photo captures and video recordings. There's even one-key takeoff/landing which helps eliminate the hardest part of being a pilot!
