Over the last few years, droning has been all the rage for photographers looking to take their skills to new heights. You can snap some brilliant photos and videos from hundreds of feet above ground.

Whether you’re an aspiring photographer or just want to experiment, the Potensic Elfin Mini Drone, described as a “great beginner drone,” is on sale for just $60, or $20 off with the on-page coupon and promo code 'ELFIN5999' at Amazon.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

This drone soars

The Potensic Elfin Mini Drone — with a 90-degree super HD 2K camera at 2048p and 30FPS (frames per second) — can capture both still photos and video. Just sync it to your Android smartphone or Apple iPhone via the Potensic Toy app, which doubles as its control center, and you’ll be all set to soar up to 164 feet (50 meters) for 10 minutes. You’ll get 10 minutes per battery; it comes with two for 20 minutes of total flight time. Shoppers are in love with its ease-of-use too.

"The Elfin was flyable right out-of-the box," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "The optical flow works well indoors. The drone holds it's position well and is quite responsive. The Elfin and the remote are well made. The plastic does not feel cheap or flimsy. The app is easy to use and works quite well."

First-time flyer? No problem

Ideal for first-timers, the Potensic Elfin Mini Drone has easy-to-use controls and one-button takeoffs, landings and hovering. And shoppers just love its super easy controls and camera quality, as well.

"The drone is easy to use with one-button takeoff and landing," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "The controls are nice and easy to understand. The camera is amazing in comparison to the 1080p versions and even on an overcast day, I was able to get some nice footage of a local forest."

At just $60 with on-page coupon and promo code 'ELFIN5999,' the Potensic Elfin Mini Drone is a great way to take your photography to the next level. "The takeoff and landing was easier than other drones I've flown," added another five-star reviewer.

It comes with a handy storage bag, a transmitter controller with three AAA batteries, a screwdriver, four propellers guards and two extra propeller blades. Everything you need to get off the ground running (or should we say flying).
