#1 Is also the cheapest drone on the list. The E010 mini drone from Eachine can be yours for less than $/£20.
With its in-built prop guards this little puppy is near on indestructible. The kit comes with battery, spare props, USB charger and the micro drone in a choice of colours. Red, green, blue & black.
You will love the lack of set up required, charge the battery and your are good to go for nearly six minutes of flying fun. The start procedure is straight forward, but will avoid surprise lift off.
Top tip would be to make sure you buy a few extra batteries to keep the fun times rolling. Why not push the boat out? Why not buy two? Go for different colours then you can hold office head to head drone races, or settle once & for all who really is the family Top-Gun.
