"7 minutes of flight and only 30 minutes of charging time". $80 for 7 minutes of flight at a time? Yeah, no

Yeah I get that for the current technology this is pretty good. But just because we can make a drone so small that it only has a 7 minute flight time, doesn't mean we should. Yeah maybe if it were $20 but $80? I don't see the draw.

I know it's disappointing but it has more to do with battery capacity and motor efficiency than size. 7 minutes is pretty typical at this pricepoint. If you want longer flight time, the top-of-the-line consumer drones with more efficient but pricier brushless motors still max out around 20-30 minutes of flight time and then you're looking at a pricepoint of $800 to several thousand. There are a couple budget models with 15-20 minute flight times in the $150-$200 range. That or you can wait for industry battery technology to improve.
