B&H # XCT2XP1002CB MFR # AT2-XP1-003-CB

Combining the vertical takeoff and landing capability of a multi-rotor with the performance of a fixed-wing airplane, the carbon skinned X PlusOne Platinum from Xcraft features a top speed of 60 mph. This is accomplished by integrating a wing surface into the airframe. Once in the air, pitch the nose forward 90 degrees to enable high-speed flight. Since there are no traditional airplane flight surfaces, pitch, roll, and yaw control are accomplished by varying the motor speeds.

The X PlusOne Platinum bundle features a Pixhawk flight controller, GPS, telemetry (air unit only), one flight battery, charger, and transmitter (radio controller).

This B&H Kit includes the DJI Spark Quadcopter, a DJI Remote Controller for Spark Quadcopters, and a DJI Shoulder Bag. The remote provides you with a more traditional control option for piloting the Spark. The Spark already offers you the ability to wirelessly pilot it with hand gestures or a mobile device via the DJI GO 4 app, but now you can place your device into the remote controller for more precise operation using the dual analog thumb sticks.

The remote connects to your mobile device wirelessly and can utilize its twin Wi-Fi antennas to display a 720p-quality live feed directly to your phone's display from up to 1.2 miles away. By using the remote controller, you can also achieve the Spark's top speed of 31 mph in Sport mode. Whether you are taking 12MP photos or 1080p video, indoors or outside, you now have full control over the DJI Spark. The addition of a shoulder bag helps make it easier to travel with the Spark and any accessories you may have.

"Great drone!...Really good drone...This is a good choice for getting into drone video... however in order to get this up and running, you'll need to watch a few online videos on how to setup and fly... WiFi hookup between remote and smartphone is iffy... there is a wire you can get to connect the two which is s better connection... shoulder bag with this is a bit small for accessories....It's a really good drone for starters, if you wanna start with aereal filming or photography then this is a very good drone to start with, if you already have a mavic or Phantom I wouldn't recommend buying it, unless, and if you do, keep in mind the 14-13 minutes of flight time that it gives, and that the camera is 1089, NOT 4K, but anyways, amazing drone!"

The F210 Racing Quadcopter with 700 TVL Camera from Walkera is constructed from carbon fiber, making it suitable for racing.
