Incredible savings on the Hover Camera Passport Self-Flying 4K Drone

Apple World Today readers know that I am a commercial drone pilot, but they may not remember that at one point I owned a Hover Camera Passport drone. I wrote about this drone for Apple World Today in 2017 and gave it a 5-star review. At that time, the Hover Camera Passport cost $499.95, but you can get one today in the Apple World Today Deals Shop for $249.99 and we’ll give you an extra 15% off of that price if you use the code MERRY15 at checkout.

The specs on this little folding drone are impressive:

  • Sensor: 1/3.06″ (CMOS)

  • Effective pixels: 13M

  • LensFOV: 78.4°; 28mm (35mm format equivalent) f/2.0

  • Depth of field: 1.2-6.7m

  • ISO Range: 100-3200

  • Pitch range: -90° to +30°

  • Image max size: 4208×3120

  • Video recording modes: 4K: 3840×2160 at 30fps; 1080P: 1920×1080 at 30fps; 720P: 1280×720 at 30fps

  • Photo/Video format: JPEG/MP4

  • Storage capacity: 32GB (including system files)



It’s the perfect size and shape for travel, folding into a shape about the size of an old VHS videocassette. The props are protected, so you can launch and catch the drone by hand. I even flew the Hover Camera Passport indoors many times while teaching an iOS class — it’s an example of an iOS accessory since it uses an iPhone app for control in addition to flying autonomously.

This deal won’t last forever, so if you’ve ever wanted a camera drone this is the perfect time to buy one. Besides, it will make up for the one you’re not getting from your wife for Christmas…
