The AEE AP9 is a quad-rotor remote control (RC) helicopter that acts as an aerial platform for a GoPro HERO & AEE action camera. The drone appeals to a variety of potential users, from RC aircraft hobbyists seeking the ability to record their flights, to videographers and photographers looking to open up a whole new range of shooting possibilities. With a 3S 5300mAh battery and improved prop design, flying time lasts to up to 25 minutes. The AP9 regularly retails for $449.99 and can be purchased online from DICK'S Sporting Goods at http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=78214066

The AP9 features a state-of-the-art "return to home" option.

The AP9 also features 500m remote distance capable of a flying range over 1500 feet.
"Through the massive retail and online footprint of DICK'S Sporting Goods, we are excited to be partnering with the largest sporting goods retailer in the U.S.," says Brian Chacone, Director of Sales and Marketing for AEE Technology Inc.
