$145 Says We Can Talk You Into Buying This Drone

This piece was written by the people who run the Cracked Store to tell you about products that are being sold there.

Drones are like the fireworks of the gadget world. They're incredibly cool, everyone loves them, and if you use them inside, you're clearly a sociopath. Like fireworks, most drones can also get a bit costly. Fortunately, the Micro Drone 3.0, a project funded on Indiegogo, is here to let the everyman experience the absolute best in remotely piloted aircraft for a reasonable price.

Here are three reasons you should pick up the Micro Drone 3.0 today:

It Flies Like A Dream

Birds have pretty much cornered the market when it comes to flight. Sure, an airplane can reach higher speeds, and fowl don't provide an in-flight viewing of Girls Season 2, but when it comes to maneuverability and grace in the sky, the avians have us beat. At least, they used to. The Micro Drone 3.0 is capable of flips, upside-down flying, spins, and even comes with customizable maneuverability settings that can be tweaked with the free flyers phone app. You'll zip, zop, and zap through the air at speeds of up to 45 mph, proving to the animal kingdom once again that humans will always be superior. Fly the Micro Drone 3.0 by any nearby pigeons, and they'll be sure to drop a load out of respect.

It Can Stream HD Video Directly To Your Devices

Forget for a moment that a drone with the power to stream 720p HD video directly to your device is an idea that a young Steven Spielberg probably wrote in his diary and then drew little kissy faces around. Just focus for a moment on the fact that you can livestream said footage in 3D with a VR headset. You'll see first-person what your drone sees in flight. That's basically like warging into the mind of a raven a la Bran Stark from Game Of Thrones, but without the downside of having to smell Hodor. So whether you use the Micro Drone 3.0 to revolutionize your student films or to get inside the mind of a duck as it commutes to work, just know that this technology will be unlike anything you've ever experienced.

It's Affordable

There are a lot of drones on the market. Some of the crazy ones can be traded in for a new car. But the Micro Drone 3.0 was able to raise $3.5 million on Indiegogo on the basis that it would be affordable for the everyday consumer. Thanks to that effort, the creators were able to bring the price to $215 and provide a kit that already comes with everything you need to fly, including a headset and inverted blades for belly-up orientation. However, for a limited time, you can grab the Micro Drone 3.0 Combo Pack from the Cracked Shop for just $145. That way, you can buy enough to start a drone gang and have enough left over for matching jackets.

Keep your drone in tip-top shape with the Code Black Drone Crash Pack, or go fun-sized with the Microlite Microdrone.
