Went to the store for milk, ended up wandering around the store and stumbled on a clearance on some drones. There was also a another drone on the shelf next to this one that seemed to be a bit larger for $30.00, but I don't think it had a camera. I ended up buying this Phoenix drone on somewhat of an impulse buy.
I would have also bought the other cheaper model but the moment I stopped to looked at them in the store it seemed as everyone else came over to see what I was looking at. Before I knew it there the shelf was bare.

It comes with two batteries for the drone, a generic pu carrying case & a controller that takes 2 AA's (not included). The charger connects through usb-c but you will have to supply your own power brick. The charge time as per the instructions is about 3-4 hours, which seems to hold true. I haven't taken it outside for real test flight yet, but I have crashed it into the wall of my house and the blades held up without breaking. Also, this is my first drone.

Nice features for $60, theoretical MSRP of $249. GPS and 16 minute per battery is excellent for this price IMO. Good reviews including one guy who says it's a rebadged MJX MEW4-1 for which you can find parts. Seems like a good start drone. Everyone crashes their first drone and at $60 it won't sting as much.

Congrats on a deal. None near me.

Believable review of the other badged version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrmtNOWv4HQ

No gimbal but waypoint nav for $60? Nice.

Specs:
2048 x 1152p video resolution camera with 180 degree articulated view
32 minute approximate total flight time
One button auto take off and landings
Real time WiFi transmission
Follow Me function through app control
2000 foot flight range
Auto Return Home, altitude hover, and location lock function via built-in GPS
Three distinct speed modes
Comes with hard sided carrying case

Appreciate the info on the fact that this is a rebadge because I been looking around for an extra charger for it. Just found one when I searched for it using the rebadge name. Thanks.
