Black Friday Drones Over $100
The Yuneec Breeze 4K drone is on sale for $199 at Walmart from November 23 – 24. This drone is a phenomenal deal since the list price on Amazon is $449. It comes with a 4K camera and it has the ability to follow you while you do stuff. The lack of a stabilizing gimbal on this drone does limit video quality though.

It shoots 1080P video and takes 14 MP stills with a well-designed 3-axis gimbal that removes a lot of blurriness during high-speed maneuvers. It has an amazing battery life of up to 25 minutes.
