On February 24, 2015, we announced the launch of the new Laughing Squid Store which features an eclectic mix of awesome gear and gadgets, software, lifestyle products, web services, designer assets, eLearning services, freebies, and much more great stuff at a deep discount. With that, we will be writing a weekly roundup blog post highlighting items in the store as well as the occasional blog post about individual items in the store.
This week our focus is on mini-drones; flying remote-controlled quadcopters that range from beginner to expert, tiny to workhorse, and from extremely affordable to investment worthy.
