I'm not sure, maybe it's expired. Under the original listing where it says promotions, there was a box to tick, to take off 70% at checkout.

Just a word on this. This is a decent spec drone but there is no camera. It has mounts to attach GoPro/ Yi Cams. So for anybody wanting to record footage, they will need to add this.

you won't find a cheaper drone with brushless motors.

I have absolutely no need for this but am considering getting one.

Would you not be better to spend a bit more on a drone with a camera than spending upwards of €40 on an additional camera?

No, this is a brushless motor drone, completely different animal to the toys you normally see around this price range.

Also, the SJCam is the only one €40, but it is an independent wireless action cam, the other cameras are much cheaper and they attach to it.

I'd like to mount my own camera cradle to this. Does anyone know what the bracket receiver is like ?
