Best Christmas 2017 Gifts: Drones

best Christmas drones2017. Best Christmas Drone Gifts 2017! Christmas is a time to enjoy with friends and family. What better Christmas gift than a drone? A quad-copter/drone will make a perfect Christmas gift for kids or grownups. 

On this site I give you my recommendations for the best small Christmas drones/quad-copters around $100. These are small budget drones with the specs you can expect for the money. Only one of the recommendations in this group has a camera. After that we present the Best Drone For Beginners. This drone has a stable 6 axis gyro, is very affordable and makes a great Christmas gift for a first time drone pilot.

The best recreational drone we have selected has more features like a real time live video preview. You see what the camera sees on the screen of your controller! 

After that we present the best drone for video/photo. For this drone the camera and stability are the most important. For this much quality the price is of course higher than the recreational drones.

The last drone on this site is the best professional drone with all the features you can imagine in a drone like a 4K camera etc. The stability and quality of the camera on this drone are so good that flying this drone is restricted within 15 miles radius of the White House.

Christmas Gifts: Best Budget Drones Around $100

My recommendations for small budget drones under $100 are the the Hubsan 4 Channel Quadcopter, the UDI 6 Axis Gyro Quadcopter and the Dromida Omnius Quadcopter. These are the most popular small Christmas Gifts: Drones trees this year. For a price under $100 you can expect a small drone which is easy to fly but doesn’t have the power/features/maneuverability that the more expensive drones have.  Of the three drones shown below only the UDI Quadcopter has a HD camera for photo and video but this also means the price is higher than the two without a camera. All three are very good affordable drones to start with, to learn how to fly a drone or just to try out drone flying for fun. Never let kids fly a drone without supervision.

Christmas 2017: Best Drone For Beginners

This beginner drone is not very big but is very stable in the air and therefore easy to control for a novice drone pilot. Also the price (around $90) is very attractive when you want to see if flying a drone is something you would like and to master the basics of drone flying.  It has nice features like a HD camera and this version has double batteries for even more flying time.
