Best drones for beginners
There are lots of different drones. Different manufacturers and different features and prices. But which is the best drone for beginners?
To answer that you need to know what makes a good beginners drone. As a beginner you need a few things from a drone. Your drone needs to be stable and easy to fly. A racing drone probably isn’t your best option as a beginner as they are twitchy, difficult to fly and expensive.
When you just start out you need a drone that is cheap enough to crash but still good enough to be stable in flight.
These are probably the best beginners drones :
|1||You get 15 minutes flight time out of this drone and it has propeller protectors for the beginner. A steal at this price.||Altair Hornet Drone|
|2||This is under $50! Also has an incredibly stable flight control system and propeller protectors.||Holy Stone HS170|
|3||Designed for beginners, its bright red and made of durable plastic.||Syma X22W|
Things to look for in a cheap drone :
- Easy to fly
- Spares available
As a beginner you will crash your drone so it may be a good idea to get a cheaper model that you won’t mind replacing…..But too cheap and it will be difficult to fly. Its a balancing act.
