DHD D3 aka Happycow 777-382 SKY Phantom

DHD D3 drone with meshed protective case
Thanks to its meshed protective case, the DHD D3 looks like the first drone in the jail :) Joking aside, the DHD D3 quadcopter seems to be specially designed for first-time pilots.

While the DHD D3 was announced...

Frankly they...
