The time I started my journey in the world of multi-rotors, the expected flight time from an entry level drone like the SG106 was about 5~7 minutes. Thanks to the improved electronic and, of course, of the higher capacity LIPOs, these days airborne time was tripled. Being powered by a 1600mAh LiPo battery, the SG106 drone is advertised with up to 22 minutes of flight time.
In addition to the frontal 1080P camera, the SG106 has a second camera under its belly which is used as optical flow positioning sensor.
Through the phone APP you can access smart flight modes, like gesture photo/video and trajectory flight.

The SG106 was announced in two color variants. You can opt between white and black colors. As winter is here, and everything should be covered by snow, for a better visibility I suggest you to go with the black version.
You can opt to purchase the SG106 drone in bundle with 1, 2 or 3 flight batteries. At Banggood, you can find it with one LIPO for only $49.99!
