In the browser, Offers page (link to it available on left side menu) says "Force1 doesn't have any offers right now, but we can let you know when they do."

Edit: Installed mobile app and it IS available there but says 90 have claimed the offer already. Previous offers topped out at 100 claimed.

I saw the same, but I only saw the time the deal ended, no note of a claim limit. Someone was kind enough to share the info with me a while back, so just paying it forward (while I kick myself - my bugs 3 will be here Thursday...and I paid a bit more. Meh).

LOL, someone voted it down because "it was not a good product."

Bugs 3 is an industry-standard hobby drone, one of the best in its class.

LOL, someone thinks this barebones (in terms of features) is really worth anymore than about $50-$60 bucks.


Also a clone and Bugs 3 drone...are not the same thing.

Actually, it's worth twice that because I just sold one for double that.

Doubtful....unless you're counting tricking some naive family member.

Have you ever flown one? This is one of the most popular quads out there for beginner/intermediate pilots. It doesn't have any bells/whistles, but it is extremely stable, has a great battery life, and can be flown with 3S batteries (which gives it a serious speed boost). For someone who wants to actually fly this cannot be beat for the price (or even for twice the price).

Have you ever flown one ?

If you are a beginner...things like (at least some type) of auto-return system and/or altitude hold is probably a good idea...unless you like getting it lost/crashes.

Again, this is a clone and isn't really don't see the value that much above it's supposed "sale" price.

Yes, I have. In fact, I've flown the Bugs 3 and the F100 and they are exactly alike in every way (don't believe me? Check the reviews...). That's why I bought one for myself. RTH and Alt-Hold are nice if you want training wheels, but this is for someone who wants to learn how to fly. Judging the product negatively because it requires skill doesn't make much sense (nor does it determine market value). That's like saying a manual transmission car isn't as valuable because it's harder to operate...silly. This will outfly pretty much any in-class quad you put it up against. There's a reason it's a favorite.

I have the Bugs 3 and a few F36 (one that is soon to be Tiny Whoop'd)...flying drones with RTH and alt-hold is boring now. If you don't believe me why not try it out? It's just barely $60 for a RTF package. I promise it'll change your mind.

If you haven't flown them yet why not return them for this? Unless they're China shipped, in which case that can be a giant PITA. If mine wasn't from Banggood I'd return that one, too.

So you first try to state it is for "beginners" but then discredit that statement and features/limitations most beginners will need in order to progress (without destroying/losing their drone in the process). Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) Pick a lane if you are trying to make a point about who this is for.

It's a barebones clone. Given the (saturated) market...this "sale" price isn't unexpected. The big ol' "F" on Fakespot doesn't help the matters either.

Thank you for posting this, it's an incredible buy. I've been looking to pick one up for a while now and was just waiting on a good opportunity. Almost bit on the $99 Woot offer but glad I held off.

It's not that particularly cheap. The CX-20 at $25 was a way better deal since it was a real GPS drone and not a non GPS drone like this one. The 3DR Solo mega kit for $150 was a better value for a "real" drone.
