Polaroid Enters the Drone Market with Three Affordable "Camera Drones"

Polaroid has entered the drone market with some affordable, feature-rich options for beginners and enthusiasts. Ranging from US $59.99 - 269.99, Polaroid is now offering a camera drone that offers at least 720p streaming video via WiFi, video recording up to 200ft, multiple flight speeds, and the ability to do 360° flips. While they do offer some appealing features, these are not to be confused with more capable drones for actual aerial photography or videography, like many of the products from DJI.
