Pimp Your Ride: $24K Gold Plated Drone
By Joseph Tepper, October 28, 2016 @ 12:32 PM (EST)

This is one drone you won’t want to lose.

An online retailer is offering a pimped-up gold plated DJI Phantom 4 for the not-so-small price tag of $24,000. Dipped in 24K gold, the quadcopter is being billed as “world’s most lavish drone” by the retailer, Drones Direct.

Besides the lavish gold coating, the drone “Gold Edition” includes a remote controller, a battery, a mobile device holder, and two sets of propellers—what a deal!

“For those who want an exclusive one-off drone, the DJI Phantom 4 Gold Edition is perfect,” Drones Direct manager Tim Morley told ToyNews. “It is the ultimate status symbol for the gadget-lover who wants something more bespoke.”

And what a toy. Other than the gold plating, the drone isn’t really that special. It has the same specifications and features as a normal DJI Phantom 4 drone.

This isn’t probably the drone for capturing aerials of great whites or over any water environment, really. Just use it for capturing your gold plated palace from above.
