Review: Hover Camera Passport drone is light and takes good …

Despite online documentation support and instructions charitably described as a nightmare, the Hover Camera Passport is a good solution for most —but only time, and usage tells the tale.

The Hover Camera Passport shipped at the end of 2016 for $599 as an Apple Store exclusive and promised to be a gateway for easy drone photography —a flying “selfie stick,” as it were, and available only from Apple. The hardware has since dropped to $499, and remains as an Apple Store exclusive and is featured prominently in some Apple Retail point-of-purchase displays.

There’s a reason why Apple stocks it. The Hover Camera Passport is solidly designed, with the box designed to be a storage bunker for accessories and components for the drone. A zipper case holds the drone itself and the two batteries that ship with the unit.
