Looking for a new toy? Drones are not only becoming wildly popular, they are also rapidly declining in price. Some of the best drones on the market come in a small form factor and sell for under 100 dollars. Looking to get started with drones, but don't want to make too big of a monetary commitment? Look no further than this list.
1. UDI 818A HD+ RC Quadcopter Drone
What sticks out to me about this starter drone is its range of features. Reviewers state that, regardless of how advanced you are in the hobby of drones, this is the right drone for you. With HD video recording built in and a bonus battery, you can't go wrong.
2. Qcopter Quadcopter
Ease of use is the name of the game with the Qcopter. From opening the box to getting in the air, you won't find a more user-friendly or straightforward intro to drones than this. With a price this low, you'll be surprised to get over 30 minutes of air time and a camera to boot.
3. Holy Stone HS110 FPV
Another unbelievable price for what you get, the Holy Stone HS110 gives you the most bang for your buck out of all of these. Clocking in at just under 100 dollars, I was amazed at the level of accuracy you can get with just 30 minutes behind the controller. The large screen allows you to carefully guide this drone wherever you may want to take it.
4. Cheerwing Syma X5SW-V3
This may be the cheapest drone you'll see on this site, but don't mistake the low tag with low quality. Although this drone may not boast the same camera resolution or battery life as the others, it offers everything you need to start, including an HD camera! A few years ago it was more expensive to buy an HD camera than it is now to buy this full drone, amazing.
5. DBPOWER MJX X400W
Another power player is the DBPOWER MJX, a fantastic drone at any level and capable of running with a VR headset! I have yet to fly with VR, but I can imagine it's a crazy experience, and it's one that users say is unique to drones. Not only is this a solid choice, users say it charges quickly so you can go out again and again.
There you have it, the hottest drones under $100 today. Hopefully one of these interests you enough to buy your first drone, or add to your collection. Either way, good luck and happy flying.
