CES has brought us some appealing and affordable flying drones, but while the sub-$150 Ryze Tello is designed for casual flying and camera shenanigans, Yuneec’s new HD Racer is all about speed.

Built for racing with a first-person perspective, the HD Racer might be the perfect starter drone for those looking to compete in high-flying sprints. The six-minute battery life might not sound like much, but that’s common in the racing end of the drone pool – and the HD Racer can also shoot 1080p video at 60 frames per second, plus it has a low-latency first-person video feed that lets you take command of the action.

It’s also beginner-friendly, with an approachable price to match: US$159.99. The HD Racer will take flight by the end of April.
