Drones are usually playful things, painted in bright colors to attract the excitable kid in us all. Not so with BHD's limited edition Black Hawk Drone with HD Camera, which is the quadcopter equivalent of a stealth bomber. io9 readers can get a pre-order discount of 55% off a Black Hawk Drone + Free Shipping.
The Black Hawk has a camera — SD and HD versions available — and a six-axis control system. With the camera, you can take awesome aerial shots of anything from your backyard to an erupting volcano. There are also four different mid-air flips in the Black Hawk's repertoire. The internal battery lasts for about 10 minutes of flight time, but refueling is via the supplied USB cable.
And then there's the price — with the current pre-order discount applied, the Black Hawk is $69 for the SD model, or $89 for the HD model. Check out the link to grab the deal…(and make sure to select SD or HD on the product page)…
