Want more great gift ideas? Your humble drones make one of the best gift ideas. Whether it’s for a child or an adult there’s a drone for all ages. The best thing about drones are they’re a lot easier to fly than those RC Planes! My brother has one of those RC planes. Actually he has two a cheap one and a more expensive one. He hasn’t flown the expensive one yet because he hasn’t landed the cheap one without crashing it yet.
One of the reasons drones are great gift ideas is because there’s a price range to suit almost every body. Lets have a look at some of the many drones out there, from the cheapest to the more expensive.
Drones, Great Gift Ideas For All Ages
The Eachine is not only one of the cheapest drones I’ve been able to find, it’s also one of the most popular! It’s received almost a perfect rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars from over 2,000 reviews. This one is mainly for the kids but I’m sure some of those kids will have to wait until the adults are ready to hand it over.
Obviously comes with a remote control but other accessories include some spare parts, USB cable to charge and everything you need to get it off the ground.
Our next drone, at under $50, is the Syma. Over 600 customers have left reviews for this remarkable quadcopter and once again it’s achieved a 4.8 rating.
Once again, even thought it’s aimed at kids I’m sure there are a lot of adults that would love the Syma. What’s really great about the Syma is that it’s one of the few drones (make sure you select Syma X5C for camera) that can come with a 2MP camera for under $50.
OK, lets have a look at one just over the $100 mark. The MJX X101 quadcopter will only set you back just under $110 while it’s on special. This is for the camera version. It’s a lot cheaper without the camera. Even with a 4.5 rating I’m sure it’s a really good buy. Here is one of the reviews.
“Excellent build quality and value for the money. The battery delivered almost 15 minutes of flight (without camera attached). Easy to control and navigate. The item was dispatched very quickly, also the seller has excellent response rate – he sent out the missing camera holder from the package the same day.”
Finally, we have a more professional drone, the Xiaomi Mi Drone, which is currently on special for under $430! Although only 15 people have left reviews for this drone it has a 5 star, perfect, rating. It has heaps of features including track and return, GPS assisted hover and will even return home when it detects low battery life.
Other features include longer flight times and even has route planning where the drone will fly according to the planning route you set for it.
