“Little Snoop”— Mini-Drone for Kids ‘n Teens

Flight duration: 45 minutes. Major use: general teen snooping.

Available in a wide variety of colors and designs, including: psychedelic, abstract flower garden, night sky, pink lace and death tattoos.

“The One-Up”— Drone for Hobbyists

Why waste time with an old-fashioned model airplane when you can enjoy the maneuverability and sheer fun of a helicopter-style drone?

“The Silent Snitch”— Drone for Detectives and Divorce Attorneys

This top-of-the-line drone has two small turbo-fan jet engines, each with 250 pounds of thrust. Armament platforms are provided, but we are not licensed to sell the actual weapons themselves.(Note: Our affiliate company, DRONECO GUNS AND AMMO, has a booth at leading weekend gun shows from Texas to Florida to Virginia.)
