DJI Phantom FC40 Drone with WiFi Camera

By: on October 28, 2014

DJI, makers of myriad drone quadcopters, designed the Phantom FC40 for everyone, but we're offering it only to you at almost 25% off its $649 retail price through the Dude Exclusives online store. Additionally, you'll get another $35 off when you enter the coupon code phantom35 at checkout, plus free shipping.

All levels of RC hobbyists and videographers can get their jollies and get up to no good with the DJI Phantom FC40 drone with built-in WiFi HD camera. The quadcopter's autopilot and auto-hover features help conduct smooth flights and, more importantly, makes sure the drone won't drop like a sack of White Castle cheeseburgers in your gut if you let go of the throttle. Additional Phantom FC40 perks include:

  • A Built-In Smart Camera. The 2.4G camera shoots 720p/30fps HD video, plus provides a live WiFi feed up to 980 feet away.
  • Ready to Fly Design. The drone requires minimal GPS setup, which is handy for people who don't really know how to do GPS setup.
  • Remote Control Unit. A 5.8GHz remote control operates up to 1,640' away.
  • Failsafe Autopilot. Including an automatic GPS-based "go home" landing feature.

All order, customer service, and general inquiries should be submitted through the Dude Exclusives Customer Support page.
