Nope. However, there is a thread in P&R (if you have access) which you may find worthwhile.

Iím banned from the p&r forum. What is the best drone for under 500.00. I want the camera to be able to look straight down 90 degrees thanks.

To be honest, the best I'm not sure about. DJI makes a great Drone. I found this one used for that amount two years ago. Still a good piece of equipment.
New ones probably won't have a lot of options for that under 500 dollar price point.

I know that the people making the drones wear kilts and tend to have really cold knees.

Ok. do you need to take a test to operate them just for fun? How much do the cameras articulate? I want one to be able to look straight down. How long do the batteries last and how long does it take for a recharge? Opinion on best one for under $500.00 Thanks

Both of these sites have good reviews. I'm more or less in the same market, but now it looks like it won't be until late in the year or next year.
