Propel Atom 1.0 is a Beginner’s Micro Drone for Just Php998!

Drones are easily accessible these days thanks to inexpensive models from Chinese brands. However, even the most affordable drones can still be difficult to fly. The newly launched Propel Atom 1.0 micro drone lets beginners learn the nuances, adjusting the difficulty as needed. Best of all, it lets you do so both indoors and outdoors with much less chance of injuring someone or causing damage due to its small size.

The Propel Atom 1.0 comes with many of the features you would find on larger drones as well. It has 6-axis stabilization so it can maintain stability in most conditions. It has 3 speed settings that you can adjust depending on your skill level. It can even perform preset aerial maneuvers, such as 360 flips.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t come equipped with a camera, but you can pretty much fly this without FPV (first-person view). Also, the lack of a camera allows the Atom 1.0 to retail for just Php998.

I’m really hoping the Atom 1.0 does well in the local market because Propel PH has a couple more drones they’d like to bring here in case it does. Interested in picking up a micro drone of your own? You can get one now from Lazada by clicking here or select 7/11 branches nationwide.

About The Author

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
