OnePlus DR-1 Quadcopter Drone Available for Purchase
OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn’t a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores “next month”.
In a pleasantly surprising move, the company has delivered on its promises in a very timely fashion. The OnePlus Dr-1 is indeed available for purchase.
Part of its April Fool’s prank, OnePlus put together an elaborate show with quite some preparation. The drone is real, albeit available in limited quantities as a special edition product.
Additional product details are listed below:
|Weight||12.5g ± 2.5g|
|Frame Size||70mm x 28mm (Blade diameter 30mm)|
|Main Motor Type||ø6X12 (4pcs)|

Stock is available in limited quantities, with shipping expected within 3-15 days. There is also a 1-year warranty to cover all manufacturer defects, but does not include accidental or user damage, so it is advisable to handle this small gadget toy with care.

As with all things OnePlus, expectations would be sky-high on this product. We hope it does indeed rise up to them.
