A fun drone with all the trimmings. By Bill Trevaskis
The F181 drone by Holy Stone toy company is a small and versatile entry-level quadcopter that’s great for beginners and priced accordingly at around $110 (See it on Amazon). Despite its lowish price it is actually a well-rounded package that includes a few extras not normally seen at this price point (more on that below). It also has enough advanced features to allow it to appeal to both novice and advanced users, giving it a distinct advantage over other drones at this price range. Let’s take a closer look:
