Don't be fooled by this unassuming object resembling a random desktop article. DOBBY from ZEROTECH unfolds its props arms like a Swiss Army Knife, revealing it to be a pocketable mini drone with 4K video recording capability. DOBBY's not dumb either – it is powered by a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and features GPS as well as optical flow indoor navigation. A 13MP resolution camera offers multiple photo modes as well as the ability to record 4K and 1080p video. It can be controlled from an iOS or Android smartphone via Wi-Fi, with verbal commands, or even by making hand gestures.

The ready-to-fly done features a flight battery lasting up to 9 minutes. The battery charges via USB and has Quick Charge 2.0 support.

    ZeroTech DB16-100B reviews

    DOBBY Pocket Drone is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I need I have built and flown many drones and racers. What I was looking for was something compact which I can carry easily and take selfies on my trips. I have looked at the Mavic and Yuneec Breeze as other options. Both of these are ver nice with good flight times but I considered them a bit too bulky for my purpose. The Zerotech Dobby provides a good comprise as it can fit in my pocket and take pretty decent pictures and videos. Make sure that you upgrade to the latest firmware and do a compass calibration before the first flight or whenever you go to different location. This is critical for the Dobby to hover stably. The electronic stabilization also works very well with the latest firmware. Although the flight time is pretty limited (about 5 -6 minutes on the average), the extra batteries packs from BhPhoto makes up the difference. It is a matter of trading off between flight time and size. The latter is what I would prefer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun device. Does what it looks like it does. Easy to fly. It isn't a replacement for the bigger drones, but you get what you pay for. Camera is good enough. Flight speed is slow. With the slower max speed and light weight--i once crashed it into wall, and it was perfectly fine. Didn't even break a prop. 5 minutes battery life, but that's the tradeoff for small size and weight. Lighter weight isn't subject to FAA. The software setup and registration process stinks. The English software--they need to hire a real English speaker to QA their stuff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an awesome device! This was a great price and fantastic bundling - especially with the addition of the two (2) spare batteries. You definitely need the spare batteries and B&H have considered that and included them in the purchase. This drone does everything that is says it can do, and the pictures and videos are very crisp and enjoyable. Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from what a cute drone No need to carry on big drones any more,13Mega pixel photo taken by dobby looks verylike that taken by iPhone,my suggestions is getting extra battery to have more fun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most function for a super low price. This low-priced drone includes a very decent camera, easy to fly, and very stable flight. Take-off and landing is fully autonomous--easier than a DJI. The tiny size makes it easy and safe to use indoors (something impossible with bigger drones). The software is in English--don't know what other guys' problem is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific performance for its size and weight. The Dobby is excellent for its intended purposes. I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Granted, it does not have the stable platform of a DJI Phantom, but it's extremely compact, lightweight and portable. I can take it places where I would never consider taking a Phantom, like in my carry-aboard luggage.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Verification Code As you may already know, the Dobby is operated via your cell phone, I downloaded the Do Fun App with no problem but when I progressed through the Registration process I was stopped until I received the Verification Code, I tried 4 times but no luck. When tech support finally got back to me 4 days later, they said they were aware of the problem and it was attributed to the fact they were optimizing their App program and to please try the app again, they did not bother to send the verification code, so I tried again and got the same result, no verification code was ever received, without that Verification Code the Do Fun App does not activate, no activation of the makes it impossible to control the Dobby, I returned the product to B&H for full credit, very frustrating!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for selfies Haven't got to use its full range of features but this is the easiest drone I've used! Very durable! I would recommend it to all
