since according to specs this is 4.5 oz , so we don't need to register?

I guess the price is good but it seems too big to fly in the house and the outdoor range won't let you get out of the yard so...

Confirmed, $38 - https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/...1736990280 - only difference I can see is the extra battery and the 'exclusive' color

I think that's a pretty good deal for $38, depends on what the batteries cost though and don't expect to be flying this with POV.

You definitely do not want to buy this and only have one battery, would be a total drag to fly it for 7 minutes and be grounded. Since this uses the cartridge battery design, it may be harder to find good cheap batteries and you may be prevented from using higher capacity ones without some ingenuity. Those third party 600 mah ones they are selling on Ebay are probably really only 500.

Still, $10 for 1 extra battery...that's not really a deal on the OP.

Nah, this is not too big to fly in the house. In fact, You Should fly it in the house and get good before going outside. I fly my mini-quads in the house and practice by flying them up and down the staircase in winter.
This one should have a range greater than 100 feet (non-pov) but you will likely end up flying it line of sight because of the junky POV -so keep that in mind.

I'd almost grab one for $38, except I have a quad I built that is about the same as this and I don't want to invest into the cartridge battery design when I just got through buying premium 750 mah Graphene batteries.

The WiFi FPV is pretty worthless (low rez, poor frame rate, short distance before it fails). Normally, I'd go with no camera and a few extra batteries (more learning time).

If you don't mind waiting 2-3 weeks, AliExpress [aliexpress.com] has it for around $36 w/ 3 batteries.

Oh, make sure the Syma you get has a "-1" to reference the updated version (better gyros).

the same drone has sold for $25-30.

Slickdeals is supposed to be a deal site, not just a listing of everything that's for sale at ordinary prices.

that isn't how deals work. They come and go. And if you need a personal shopping assistant, hire one.
