The centrally-mounted control dial allows you to select between four preconfigured flight modes: hover, reveal, follow, and orbit. There''s also a favorite mode where you may tweak something from another mode.

Pixy has a 12MP camera and 16GB of internal storage that can save up to 100 videos or around 1,000 photos. Video quality is up to 2.7k @ up to 30 frames per second. It also has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, as well as a removable 860mAh battery that''s excellent for anywhere from five to eight flights using default flights.

With the battery pack installed, it is very light, perhaps even too light in certain situations like a windy day. The camera is mounted directly to the drone, so there is no gimbal to help stabilize the device.

Pixy is available in the United States and France for $229.99. Additional battery packs retail for $19.99, and there is a dual battery charger for $49.99 when purchased as a bundle. The drone, two batteries, and the charger are available for $249.99.
