'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.

Heading into the holiday season, time seems to fly by; you'll be making New Year's resolutions before you know it. But why wait to make dramatic changes in your life when it's so easy and inexpensive to do so at any time? For instance, if you've been a little envious of all those digital nomad stories, there's no reason you can't become one yourself. Teach yourself new skills to find freelance work, buy an inexpensive laptop to work on the go, and you're part of the way there.

But if you plan to travel as you work, you might want to pick up some camera gear to document your journey. The Ninja Dragon Blade X PRO offers two cameras, one 4K and another HD, to provide a steady shooting experience, and it's on sale for $85.99. This dual-camera drone is built for beginners like kids and teens, so you may barely even need to read the instruction manual!

Just press a single button, and the Blade X PRO will take off and stay in the air. It features a remote control that allows you to operate the drone from up to 490 feet away; you just need to connect the controller to your mobile phone. You can also press a single button to hail the drone back to you and land.

Using the mobile app, you can draw a flight path that the Blade X PRO will follow. The quadcopter has a three-sided intelligent obstacle avoidance system, which scans for and avoids objects like walls and trees, so you shouldn't have to worry about crashes. 

Finally, the Blade X PRO offers up to 15 minutes of flight time off a single charge, and it only takes 60 minutes to top off the battery. The drone is barely three-by-five inches when folded, and it comes with a convenient carry case, tools, and four spare blades in case one gets lost or damaged.
