OnePlus DR-1 Quadcopter Drone Available for Purchase

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.

The DR-1 is a tiny quadcopter with a wingspan of just 70mm. In fact, the controller is actually in size comparison to the drone, which is roughly half the size of the OnePlus One.text-comparison
