Drones are a popular gift this holiday season, from expensive professional quality drones like the Chroma Drone that I reviewed a couple weeks ago, to much more affordable ones from online retails like Amazon. Most drones that you see are also called quadcopters because they have four rotors. But I doubt you’ve ever seen a drone like the Bionic Bird. This drone looks like an actual bird with a 12 inch wingspan and a tail. But what makes it special is that it flaps its wings to fly – just like a real bird. The Bionic Bird Drone is controlled with an app on your smartphone and can reach altitudes of up to 328 feet. It can fly for up to 8 minutes on a 12 minute charge on the portable charger which is shaped like an egg. The egg can recharge the drone multiple times before it requires its own recharge. The Bionic Bird can fly indoors or out and is priced at $149.95. You can find more info at mybionicbird.com and buy one from Amazon.
