No please, do drone on....

User Rating: / 0
My wife wants to get her dad a drone for Christmas but all the ones she's looked at require a smart phone and app to fly. That's not really ideal since my in-laws don't have smart devices. Anybody have suggestions and/or experience for drones (with cameras) that can be flown without a smart phone (ideally with display included on the control pad) in the under $200 range? (CDN not USD though I'm told this is a "soft" limit so a bit more is probably okay if it's good quality.) Presumably the $200 limit implies this but just to be clear: this is really just a toy. We want a good quality toy but we're not looking for the absolute top of the line, cutting edge technology here.

For reference, this is one of the ones that she was looking at. The company told her that it's possible but "not recommended" to fly it with the control pad alone.
