This is the ancient model that still uses a Naze32 as the flight controller. They have more modern version with the F3 controller for waaaay cheaper. Like $115 cheaper.

Hell, the Wizard S version with the upgraded motors, and F4 flight controller is still cheaper than this drop.

They're trying to sell an incredibly old version of this quad.

If you're new to drones and just looking for an RTF kit where you can play around with it and learn, here is the wizard RTF kit with a more modern F4 flight controller.

If you're a little more experienced in RC, or willing to learn I'd honestly recommend the newer Eachine TS215 over any of the wizard series these days. Keep in mind it is NOT an RTF kit. You would still need a transmitter and receiver for this drone, and know how to install and configure them. It's specs vs it's price point is basically unbeatable right now though. Only real complaint I had was it has a weirdly shaped PDB on it, but if you're handy the frame could be modified to take a more traditional flight stack no problem.

The drone itself is comparable to some of the higher end custom builds I've done, while still being almost a $100 cheaper than buying the parts and building it yourself. I almost don't know how they make profit off it.
