From capturing beautiful aerial photography to assisting with dangerous search and rescue missions, drones represent one of the world’s fastest-growing and most exciting technologies.

Safe to fly both indoors and in windless conditions outdoors, the durable Echo Drone by Apex can perform numerous flips and aerial acrobatic moves, fly up and down and all around in three speeds, capture photos, and record short videos to a connected device. It is a great alternative to the Tello!

The Echo Drone features best-in-class technology fit for education. Students can start by flying their drone using the included R/C controller and then transition to controlling it via block-based or Scratch coding in the Tspeed7 app. The app also enables you to use the drone’s onboard camera, which transmits images and video to your smartphone via Wi-Fi.
