Hello, I am James! Welcome to Horizon Hobby, how can I assist you with finding the right item to suit your needs?
Hi my name is Brian (Colorado) I'm looking for a starter drone for my son. 15th birthday coming up in a week! He has a GoPro Hero and I would like you utilize that to safe a bit of money on the camera side. Thoughts?
James H.
Nice to meet you Brian.
Yes, we would have a great option for you that would allow you to use your current camera, let me pull up that item for you.

I live at 8200 feet elevation. I've had trouble with lift when trying to fly toy helicopters. Any trouble regarding lift for this drone? Is this actually considered a quadcopter?
James H.
They are also calle quadcopter, the more popular name that has stuck is drone (thanks media) you should not have any issue at all, this works a bit different then a helicopter.
Do you have any store fronts? Happen to be in California now and would love to put my hands and eyes on the drone in real life?
James H.
Horizon does have some dealers, let me get you a dealer locator so you can find the nearest store.
Thanks James...I'm good to go. Appreciate the help. Have a good day!
James H.
You are very welcome, I am happy to help anytime. Enjoy the rest of your day.
