What drones don't need a cell phone?

I don't have a cell phone and I don't plan on spending $800.00 for a phone just to control my drone when I buy it. Is there anybody out here who can tell me what drones there are that don't need an iPhone? I'm just starting out and could use a lot of help. Thanks everybody. Joedrone :roll:

Okay....Okay... after doing more research and a lot of cruising the net, I found a lot more drones that don't need an "Apple" product to function but, Dji phantom seems to be one of the best drones out there. They also are manufactured with "Apple" in mind. Their control app is designed especially for the Apple platform.... That's okay.... I guess.... Anybody out there use the "Droid" platform? Thx, joedrone

Well..... had to send back my Phantom 4 Dji controller with "built-in" display because the remote did not boot up with the right display. I specifically ordered the " + " because I do not and will not purchase a $600 "phone" to pilot a decent drone. Oh well, got the next week off from work, we'll see what happens. Stay tuned.

Hello,

it's indeed only worth it if you do not have to buy a smartphone. (These days people tend to have one anyway.)

From that point of view it's genius to use it as a remote control.
