If you love nature while you’re sitting on solid land, imagine how you’ll feel seeing it from two thousand feet in the air. With a refurbished Vivitar VTI Phoenix Foldable Drone, you can explore the sky and get a live view from a drone(opens in a new tab) streamed right to your phone for $124.99 (reg. $249) for a limited time. 

This Vivitar VTI drone has been refurbished with an “A” grade, meaning it’s in near-mint condition and may only have light amounts of superficial scuffing. Otherwise, it would be difficult to tell anyone else ever flew this drone.

This could be a great drone for hobbyist flyers and seasoned adventurers alike. If you enjoy drones, then this one packs a lot of power into a relatively compact form. This drone comes with two batteries, amounting to 32 minutes of flight broken into 16-minute chunks with a battery replacement in between. Fly up to two thousand feet away and get there quickly using any of three distinct speed modes. 

While you’re in the air, you can switch from live controls to altitude hover. That could be a great way to get a clear landscape shot from the 2048 x 1152p video camera mounted on the front. Whether you’re flying or floating, you can get a live feed on your phone using real-time WiFi transmission.

Once you’re done with a flight, just hit the auto return button and watch it come back. If the battery dies on the way, don’t worry if you lose sight of your drone during a sudden landing. The location lock function and built-in GPS should make it simple work to find where you landed. 

Normally, a refurbished Vivitar VTI Phoenix Foldable Drone(opens in a new tab) would cost $249, but for a limited time, you can get this one for only $124.99.
