SAN JOSE, CA --(Marketwired - November 21, 2016) - Mota Group announced its JETJAT® ULTRA™ micro-sized drone has been named a finalist in the Toy Industry Association's 2017 Toy of the Year awards contest.

"We are thrilled JETJAT ULTRA has been recognized among the many outstanding toys as a finalist for the 2017 Toy of the Year award," said Michael Faro, chief executive officer at Mota. "JETJAT ULTRA is not only terrifically fun to fly, it also helps youth develop valuable drone piloting skills for use as adults. It's a great gift for all families this holiday season."
The ULTRA features intelligent autoflight software to increase fun by making basic flight easy, with features like auto take-off, auto hover and autoland.
The ULTRA stores inside its precision controller to take anywhere, and charges from most power sources, features that let people toss it in a backpack, purse, or even a large pocket, and take the fun with them wherever they go.
It's available with an optional mobile VR headset for a thrilling, fully immersive experience of each second of flight.
The Toy of the Year awards is the Toy Industry Association's annual event recognizing the best in play for each calendar year in the toy industry.
