The Best Toy Drones For Under $50

So you’d like to buy a drone for your kids for the holidays… but drones are fragile (and expensive). Those two qualities don’t combine well with kids of any age. What’s a parent to do?

Luckily, these flying gadgets are so ubiquitous that they can be had for a song, at least compared to much more powerful and capable consumer drones. Sure, they’re more like a modern take on an RC car than an actual flying robot—but since your kids would smash a real drone into a thousand pieces after a minute or two, it’s probably a prudent move to go cheap.

We’ve selected the best option for standard drones and one equipped with a camera,  plus a faster “racing” drone for older kids. If you’re worried about someone getting hurt, there’s also a super-light option with a completely enclosed rotor design. Check them out below.

Best Overall Drone Under $50: Holy Stone HS210 ($50)

If your aim is to get your recipient into drones as a hobby without spending much money, this model from the well-regarded Holy Stone line is ideal. It comes with an included physical controller, unlike many models that rely on less precise phone control apps, and has no less than three batteries included for longer play sessions.

Sturdy plastic rotor rings and a lightweight should protect it in inevitable crashes, and a position hold function and an easy steering mode help beginner operators come to grips with typical drone controls.

Best Camera Drone: Hubsan X4 H107C ($30)

For those who prefer the photography angle of drones, this Hubsan model includes a 720p video camera in a package under thirty bucks. At that low of a price, you don’t get remote camera controls: you’ll have to press the record button on the drone, begin your flight, and then press it again when you’re done to finish the recording on the MicroSD card.
