    I did last summer and it was an interesting experience. We went with a cam drone, about $180 each, it's tough with budgeting both with programs and parents. Won't say the brand but I haven't had the best experience with drones that rely on phones for the sync. In this case there was a wide disparity with phones the kids had, wifi capabilities turned off for some by parents for obvious reasons, models, versions, etc. Resulted in a lot of trouble shooting and down time. Fortunately we had our flying field (18 acres no trees, no power lines) to experiment and the kids loved that, giving each one 10+ hours in the air (it was a five day drone camp).
