Galactic II Streaming HD Drone, VR Headset & Nano Drone Bundle
- A drone bundle containing a large (13" square) HD video drone, a VR headset for live viewing, and a wee little nanodrone
- Each drone has its own remote, and the larger one can be controlled with your phone
- Larger drone features auto-hover, “home beacon” return functionality, HD video and photos, and 6-axis gyro stabilization (mmmm … gyros)
- The product copy mentions several times that the large one can perform “360 degree flips” which is cool but doesn’t seem thaaat important
- VR headset uses your smartphone but doesn’t have a button like the newer headsets, so you won’t be able to use it for all VRing
- Model: ODY-2016BFG (A rare case where the product number seems saner and more reasonable than the product name)

“Bundles” like these have many advantages. They usually cost less than the items purchased individually. They save you from decision fatigue. And the word “bundle” is fun to say.
They also have one major disadvantage: You might not want everything included, in which case buying it will feel like a waste.
However, even if you don’t use everything in this Galactic drone/VR/tiny-drone bundle, you’ll probably derive enough value to justify the cost. Let’s break down some example scenarios and budgets.
