Limited Edition Code Black Drone + HD Camera: Pre-Order for $89

We mentioned the Black Hawk Drone with SD camera deal a couple of weeks ago. It sold out almost immediately, and it got a name change to Code Black Drone, but there's a pre-order available for the HD version for just $89, $10 less when it ships (and it will retail for $199 outside of our deal channel). In any event, Code Black Drone is a cool looking quadcopter with an onboard camera, an HD camera in this case. The pre-order deal has only two days left, so if you want one for yourself or as a gift, grab it now.
