Both kits are identical, coming with all the same supplies including the
flight control app. The additional joystick controller in the Deluxe Kit that
provides an additional flying experience is the only difference between
the two kits. Some reasons why people want the joystick controller: a)
tactile feedback from the joysticks (personal preference) b) less screen-
time for kids c) no bluetooth device available for flying (mostly in
classrooms or group settings).
