Over the last few years, droning has been all the rage for photographers looking to take their skills to another level. You can snap some brilliant pix when you’re hundreds of feet above ground.

Whether you’re an aspiring photographer or just want to tool around, Holy Stone drones are 30 percent off today.

Models like the Holy Stone HS110D FPV RC drone, described as “an excellent beginner quadcopter,” is on sale for just $70—$30 off. This drone, with a 120-degree 720p HD camera on its belly, can capture both still photos and video.

Just sync the drone to your iOS or Android smartphone via the Holy Stone app, which doubles as its control center, and you’ll be all set to take flight up to 328 feet. One of the reasons this drone is ideal for first-timers is because it has easy-to-use controls, and one-button takeoffs, landings and hovering.

And it garnered more than 800 positive reviews on Amazon.

“Holy Stone has put out an excellent beginner quadcopter in the HS110D,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “We have another Holy Stone quadcopter and this one seems easier to operate. I took it out for the first time today and the experience was great so I was excited to share my views right away. The controller is easy to operate without taking your eyes off the quad.”

The reviewer continued: “The display is very informative and clear so with a quick glance you know which of the four speed modes you are in, and whether or not you are taking video. Your smartphone easily fits in the controller. I own an LG G4 and I had no problems.”

“The HS 110D is an awesome drone,” another satisfied customer wrote. “First thing I noticed was how flawless the design and overall appearance were. I love the video quality you get considering the low price point of the drone. The fact that it's a wide angle camera makes it easier to fly in FPV and it captures great photos. Being able to fly it using my VR goggles was pretty cool too.”
