You should put REFURBISHED in the title.

Refurbished drones feel like a bit of a dice roll. I got the $40 refurb Parrot AR 2.0 from TechRabbit over the holidays, and feel lucky that everything is in working order. But the *real* downside to refurbished units is that you are likely receiving a used battery. In my case, I'm losing ~5 minutes of flight time vs. what a new battery is supposed to get.

Battery life in these drones is already a key issue (you want to enjoy every last possible minute in the air), so getting a used battery can really hurt the overall experience--especially when a new battery can run $50 or more. In my case, it would cost me as much to buy a new battery as it did to buy my refurb drone in the first place.

The Bebop 2 was just $240 a couple days ago brand new from B&H--it included the controller, but it did not include the flight goggles. That was a better and more reliable deal, but it's gone now =(
