Let's take a look at this year's top picks.
1. Syma X5C
Ease of use
Fly by night
Good battery life
Easy parts purchase
Since my son already has a big collection of drones, I thought I should buy and check the Syma X5C and see if it would be an excellent addition to my collection of flying toys.
I have previous drones which are much more expensive than the Syma X5C, so I didn’t have too many expectations from this drone. The first time I tried the Syma X5C, it blew my mind. I can easily say that for the money, the Syma X5C is truly the best available in the market right now.
As I have mentioned above, the Syma X5C drone is a great deal for the money. You get a high-end high quality, stable drone which is durable and has an excellent battery life for the price of a low-end drone. It is great for both a beginner and an expert. It is perfect for kids, and they will love it.
Ease to setup
Good Battery Life
This is a great beginner drone. It is an excellent drone for a kid for whom this would be the first drone. The Skyrocket Toys’ Sky Viper V950HD is fun and has many exciting features. The only thing that it is not great in that would be a disadvantage if an expert is using it, is its power.
The Sky Viper HD V950 Video is a four-rotor drone also known as a quadcopter. It has an RC transmitter, 4GB micro SD card, camera module, a rechargeable LIPO Flight Battery, micro SD USB adapter, a LIPO Flight Battery which is rechargeable, screwdriver, charging cable, and four extra screws.
The Sky Viper HD V950 Video Drone is amazing for its price. It is useful as a beginner drone, especially for a kid. Other than expert flyers who needs power for stunts etc., the Sky Viper HD V950 Video Drone is excellent particularly as it is inexpensive, durable and easy to use.
Long Battery Life
The Traxxas 6608 LaTrax Alias Quad-Rotor RTF Heli is a great quadcopter. It is in the style of a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). You don’t have to set it up. There is no building or programming as there is in other drones. It is ready-made, and you can remove it from the box and start using it. Another exceptional thing is that it comes in 3 colors as opposed to standard black and white drones.
You have an option of white, red and black, orange and black and green. The Traxxas 6608 LaTrax Alias Quad-Rotor RTF Heli is shaped with four propellers that rotate. It has bright LED running lights which are colorful. You can customize this so that it can be different and unique to you.
Regarding power and ease of you, this may be the best in the market. It is a UAV which has great features. The motor issue is a worry. If this is the first drone for your kid, I would suggest you pick one other the other drones. If you kids are already used to drones and want a high power one, then the Traxxas 6608 LaTrax Alias Quad-Rotor RTF Heli is right for you.
4. UDI U818A
Perfect for new users
Instant video viewing
If you are buying a drone for the first time, then the UDI U818A UPGRADED VERSION 2.4GHz Quadcopter with Camera is an excellent choice for you. It is beginner friendly and kid’s right from the age of five can play with it and would love it. This is a durable drone which is paramount as when your children are learning to fly drones, they could drop it. Try to start on parks and lawns so that it won’t be hit too hard on impact.
The UDI U818A UPGRADED VERSION 2.4GHz Quadcopter with Camera is easy to you. You need to charge your batteries and put them in and start. The camera is decent, the drone is easy to navigate, and it has an inversion which is 360 degrees so that you can try a few stunts once you are good at flying the drone.
The UDI U818A UPGRADED VERSION 2.4GHz Quadcopter with Camera is an excellent buy for a beginner. You can relax even though your kid may crash it multiple times. Since the range is not much, your child won’t wander. It is very durable and easy to use. Only keep in mind the breeze when you are playing it. If you live in a windy area or would be playing it with your kid at night, you may want to consider another drone.
Beginner and Experienced Friendly
HeliMax is one of the best-known brands in the drone market. They make quadcopters which are easy to use; it is cheap, of high quality and very durable.
The Heli-max is small but very quick and easy to navigate. It is very stable for its size and very fast which makes it great to play with. You can buy the Heli-Max 1SQ RTF Quadcopter with 2.4 GHz Radio as a Transmitter-ready package or as a Ready-to-Fly package.
The transmitter ready package needs a Tactic Anylink adapter so that you can link to the transmitter of your choice. It is one of the rare drones which can hover for a while.
When it comes to the value for money, quality and performance the Heli-Max 1SQ RTF Quadcopter with 2.4Ghz Radio is the absolute best in the market. It has a lot of features and is a joy to play with. Since it is very stable, a new player will enjoy flying this drone. The only problem I see with the Heli-Max 1SQ RTF Quadcopter with 2.4Ghz Radio is the battery life.
