'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Each drone has a 4K front camera plus a 720P bottom camera. They also come packed with features. For example, one-key return lets them find their way home, while headless mode enables you to fly them without first adjusting their positions. Meanwhile, altitude hold mode keeps these drones stable so you can capture high-definition footage and gorgeous shots from above.
Of course, there's plenty more. In addition to WiFi connectivity, remote control and a host of other features, both drones have 4-channel mode. This means each one can ascend, descend, move in cardinal directions and even perform 360-degree rolls.
Naturally, there are a few differences between the two drones. With two-finger photography and gesture control, the Flying Fox allows you to record videos and take photos with only hand gestures. And though they are both controllable within a range of 260 to 300 feet, the Flying Fox is capable of 20 feet more. The Flying Fox also has three flight speeds, folding arms, and slightly more wide-angle coverage.
There's still plenty to love about the Alpha Z Pro, though. TNW shares, "With sturdy construction, a host of cool flying features and a gorgeous 4K camera, the Ninja Dragon Alpha Z is a stellar addition to any drone fleet."
Don't pass up this chance to buy two drones for the price of one. The regular MSRP for both the Alpha Z PRO and the Flying Fox is $398, but the bundle discounts them by 56%, so you only pay $174.99 for the two.
