Best cheap drones under $100: Great toy drones

Debes Leer

There are many reasons why you might want a starter drone. Although they lack some of the more advanced features found on pro models, entry-level drones offer a simpler, more accessible introduction to the principles of flying by remote-control. The best beginner drones are fun and forgiving to fly – and if you’re planning to one day upgrade to a high-end flyer, it makes sense to put in the practice with a less delicate and less expensive drone.

Entry-level drones come in a range of shapes, sizes and price categories, but the best models all share the same basic characteristics. A good beginner drone will be stable in the air, easy to fly and robust enough to survive a few crash landings. There are several simple, ultra-affordable drones that can do all of the above. Whether you want additional features – such as video recording or automatic hovering – will depend on how you plan to use your drone, as well as your budget.

Best drones under $100


What cheap drone should I buy?

Good news for you, we have been building best drone lists to help you figure out what to spend your hard earned money on. We have a big list of the best consumer grade drones, regardless price, we have a list of great drones in the under $500 group, and more, but today we are keeping things to the very affordable under $100 range.


1. Hubsan H107

Getting into the toy range here, the Hubsan H107 is a series of drones, one of the main models is the Hubsan H107L. These are fairly entry level drones, great for those learning to fly or that are not in need of a robust machine to take to the skies. Also great for those with very little time on their hands, this little drone has no camera, cannot carry the GoPro and has battery enough for about 5-10 minutes of flight, depending on how you push it.

We all have to start somewhere, and the Hubsan H107C for about $30 sounds like a smart price to do so.

2. Syma X5C

The Syma X5C was one of our first drones. A toy-class machine that is very resilient, fairly stable and easy to operate. We knew we needed something inexpensive to learn how to fly in the beginning, and this machine was our choice. The quirks of this simple drone taught us about basic flight mistakes, how to control a machine and much more.

The Syma X5C runs about $30 for the drone, a little more with extra batteries and parts.

3. Ryze Tello

Ryze Tello DJI toy drone

Built using many DJI parts, and sold on the DJI site in partnership with DJI, it is a common misunderstanding that this is a DJI drone. The Ryze Tello is a fun little machine that serves many purposes. On the surface, it’s a functional and capable high-end, toy-class drone. You can fly by mobile device, remote control or, in the case of the Educational versions of this machine, you can code your own functionality.

The Ryze Tello is an attractive first drone for many pilots and parents of potential pilots. There are even a few different partnerships, like the Iron Man edition Tello.

Check out the Ryze Tello alone for about $99, upgrade to the Ryze Tello with remote for around $129 and explore the other options from there.Full Drone Review

4. Hubsan H502S Desire

Hubsan H502S Desire drone

At launch, the Hubsan H502S Desire was one of the very best toy-class drones that Hubsan produced. It rocks basic GPS and flight features like a follow-me mode. The little drone still has brushed motors, which is a clear distinction in the Hubsan line between their low and high-end models, the higher end models have brushless motors. Don’t hold this against the H502S, it may not be as fast or battery efficient as the brushed models, but it still flies very stable, holds a hover quite well and the FPV through the 720p camera gives you that fun flight experience.

You can get into the Hubsan H502S Desire for around $100 today, that’s approaching half of its initial price at launch.Full Drone Review

5. UDI U818

UDI 818A HD drone

The UDI U818 series has a few drones to speak of, one of the best is the U818A HD+. The HD+ model comes with a 720P camera and some basic GPS functionality. This is a toy-class drone, the type you have likely seen in the electronics department of your local supermarket. There is little to say about this machine, it flies fairly well, for a toy-class machine, it is affordable and is great to learn on. There is no FPV, the camera just records and takes photos for viewing afterward.

6. Syma X8C Venture

syma-x8c-venture-drone

Adding a new term to the mix, the Syma X8C Venture is a slight bump up from the X5C, including more substantial landing gear, a bit slower flight operation and headless flight. They call it Intelligent Orientation Control, but let’s not kid ourselves, it’s just headless flight. This drone is a bit larger than the X5C, but offers up very similar flight times, despite the much larger 2000mAh battery, and the same basic functionality and accessories.

7. Holy Stone HS200 FPV

Using a familiar basic body and craft as many other toy drones, Holy Stone has added a batch of smarts and called their version the HS200 FPV. If we have not covered this yet, FPV is short for First Person View, which is when a drone live streams its camera view back to a display in your hands. So, take the toy drone, add headless mode flight, FPV, altitude hold and a return to home feature, and you’ve got the Holy Stone HS200 FPV quadcopter.

8. Blade Inductrix Switch Air

Blade Inductrix Switch Air VTOL drone top and side

For many in the hobby community, Blade is a favorite brand, with little micro quads in the Inductrix line. The versatile little quad has been put to use in a few ways now, the latest of which is a VTOL craft, of sorts, that is safe to fly indoors. Best suited for larger rooms, but still, safe indoors. The bent quad provides a slight forward attitude hover, and when you get moving fast enough, the wings take over and keep the machine aloft. From what we hear, the wings help in turns more than they actually ‘fly’ the drone, but hey, we are intrigued by this design, and the whole kit and experience can be had for a very low price, all things considered.

9. DBPower MJX X400W

dbpower-mjx-x400w-drone

Adding some aerobatics to the mix, the DBPower MJX X400W FPV drone with 3D VR headset capabilities is another step down from a previous item in this list today. This quadcopter keeps things simple, giving you a great flying and learning experience with up to 9 minutes of flight time per charge and headless mode flight.

Best Nano Drones

Nano drones are great for beginners because they are small and easy to operate. They are also affordable making them a great platform to build up your skills before you move to a bigger rig.

If you are looking for a small drone, then you have come to the right place. I’m here to share with you my experiences with nano drones and I’ll be giving you a list of my top picks of small drones in the market!

Holy Stone HS170

HS170 Predator is a great nano drone. It has a 6-axis gyro stabilization system that enables it to recover immediately after performing stunts and sudden moves. It is also wind-resistant which helps in its stability during flights.

This comes with 3 different speed modes that allow both beginners and experts to enjoy it regardless of their skill level. It is so fast at the highest speed for a micro quad that even pros will love it.

This nano drone is capable of performing flips and rolls for a more fun flying experience. It is also super stable that after a few clicks you can leave it hovering handsfree.

Blade Nano QX

Blade Nano QX fits this category because it is so small you can fit it in your palm. This tiny Nano QX only weighs a little more than half an ounce and is small enough to fly in spaces no bigger than an office cubicle.

If you have never flown a drone before, don’t worry, this is equipped with SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology system that keeps itself stable in a hover while in “Stability” mode. If you get in trouble, don’t panic, simply let go of the sticks and the SAFE technology system will come into play and bring the Nano QX back to a hover all by itself.

The Stability mode keeps the quadcopter in control. When in this mode you will feel an immediate sense of confidence as if you’re a pro.

Cheerson CX-10

Cheerson CX-10 is one of the smallest drones you will ever find in the market. However, it has a compact frame similar to that of the DJI Phantom 3.

I’m very impressed with CX-10 because despite its size it can really fly well. Also, even if it lacks windproofing, it flies well in the wind. I didn’t expect so much from this that’s why I was blown away.

When you get this in the air, you will hear a little noise, but it is very stable. It’s also very easy to control even beginners can fly this without problems. That’s not all; This nano drone can flip in the air, too.

If you love flying drones at night, it has 4 lights on each motor that enable you to see it in the dark and detect the orientation for better flying. Its remote control fits well into the palm of your hands and you won’t have trouble controlling it because the buttons are well-placed and coated with an adhesive material to prevent your thumb from flipping while you pilot the drone.

Best mini drones

The DJI Mavic Mini was an aerial game-changer, offering strong battery life, accessible controls and fantastic footage, all in a compact folding package. Almost identical to its predecessor, the DJI Mini 2 features a handful of upgrades that make it an even better beginner drone. 

Small enough to slip in a jacket pocket, the second-generation Mini is also even easier to fly thanks to a revamped controller. The streamlined handset is advanced yet intuitive, permitting nuanced inputs without overwhelming the pilot. It’s a joy to operate and, with a maximum range of 10km, improves the entire flying experience. The hardware itself might be familiar, but improved motors, stabilization and wind-resistance deliver rock-steady footage in all but the breeziest conditions, while battery life remains solid with a flight time of around 30 minutes. 

And though the sensor resolution is the same as before, the Mini 2 can capture buttery smooth footage in sharp 4K at 30fps. Scenes are a little underexposed for easier editing, but clarity is undeniably impressive. It’s not a total overhaul and there’s still no obstacle avoidance, but the DJI Mini 2 is nevertheless the best starter drone beginners can buy.


Best drone for kids

If you are not buying for yourself today, instead looking to put a flying machine in the hands of a youngster, we’ve tested out on a six and ten year old, they agree, these are the best drones for kids.

Altair Falcon drone for kids

Altair Falcon drone –

One amazing feature on the Falcon that stood out to us was the Autonomous Hover and Positioning System. Not only do we appreciate that this system is unique to Altair, but it keeps the drone in place which makes it easy for a child to learn the controls.

Another kid friendly feature we noticed about the Falcon is the size of the controller. It’s more compact than other controllers on the market which makes it a perfect fit for a child learning to fly a drone for the first time.


That’s the end of our list. Other than actually taking the controls, I hope you’ve found most all of the particulars that you require to get your first quadcopter into the air. Do not be afraid of them, but do treat them with respect. Do not go too fast with them, learn the basics and ensure that you have your drone for years to come. Finally, there is no point spending a ton of money on your first craft, get one of these little toy class trainers to learn the basics of flight. You’ll be the master of the air in no time.
