Best mini-drone under $50, please rec!
Hi all,

My son's birthday is coming up end of November and he's been dreaming of a drone for over a year now...

I know virtually nothing about drones and most of those I saw had no reviews at all, so I'm a bit lost...


Please can you give me your recommendations for a small but sturdy drone to gift for his birthday?

Thanks a bunch!

Step one- Buy a lot of baloons, a canister with helium and a camera.
Step two - inflate them.
Step three - tell your son to hang tight and secure the baloons tight.
Step four - give him the camera in hand and let him loose:


Tadaaaa

The link below contains a list of best drones under $50.00, plus links to several other sites which also rate drones . vv

You can see which are most popular and then see if FT sells any of those. Good luck.

Hi airbags,

Thanks for the reply, although i wasn’t fast enough to see it and it’s been deleted by the admin. I guess it had links to outside vendors?

Would you mind sending it to my email address ?

I hope you will see this message and many Thanks !

Hi airbagz,

Thanks a lot, i’ll have a closer look at it tomorrow (late here).

Btw, thanks for the warning, appreciate it, but this isn’t my real name nor primary email address... anyway edited my post as you suggested.

Have a good day/night.

Wtf?

My second post contained only one link to a site that reviews/rates drones, and doesn't sell anything. And I mentioned that in the post.
