For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with TRNDlabs to give MacRumors readers a chance to win a small pocket-sized iPhone-compatible Fader drone that's equipped with a camera. TRNDlabs offers a range of different affordable drone options, and the Fader is one of its newest products.


Able to fit in the palm of a hand, the Fader is ideal for selfies, landscape shots, sports, and more with its HD camera. The Fader comes in all black and is ultra lightweight, weighing in at just 55 grams. It can fly and capture footage for seven minutes before needing to be recharged.

It's flown using a controller that includes an iPhone mount, and with the accompanying Fader app, you can see a live feed of what the drone's capturing. There are three levels of controller sensitivity, making it ideal for all skill levels.

Fader features auto takeoff and and land functionality, and it features a six-axis gyro module that allows for tricks (there's a built in flip feature) and altitude maintenance when hovering. It's able to capture stable footage from the air, and it can fly as far as 50 meters away. For night flights, it includes LED lights.

Is there a way to keep the drone stable in the air without battling the control? To get a picture without me holding the control.

Whoever is in charge needs to change the definition of HD. I really don't consider 720p HD anymore. Still, wouldn't mind this one.

I'm a rolling stone.
What if it's windy, guess this is only for those moments without wind.

Still a shame it's for US residents only, even if it's just for those days without wind, I would have liked one.
