1. Eachine E520S- Best Drone For Beginners

1-Eachine E520S

Why you should buy this
The E520S features an impressive 4K camera that can be utilized with waypoints to capture excellent aerial shots.

Who it’s for:
Those new to drones and looking to get started with aerial photography.

Why we chose the Eachine E520S:

For those familiar with drones, we know what your first thought will be: The Eachine E520S looks like a rip-off of the DJI Mavic. To that, we answer, “Yes, you are right.” However, peek beyond the copy-cat design and the E520S offers an impressive drone equipped with a 4K camera and GPS, all at an excellent price. The 4K camera is an excellent start for those looking to get started with aerial photography and the integrated GPS helps establish waypoints. Excellent for when shooting video or capturing images, waypoints allow you to set automatic paths for the drone to fly while you worry about controlling the camera. The E520S can even perform an orbit around you, capturing an awesome 360-degree view of yourself.

The downloadable camera app for both iOS and Android allows you to take control of the drone as well as issue intelligent commands. Our favorite feature is the Follow Me mode, which enables the drone to follow you as you move around — great for capturing fast action in an open field. Otherwise, the E520S features other smart features we would expect, including an altitude hold feature and automatic takeoff and landing. The E520S features up to 16 minutes of flight time and can travel up to 300 m away. Once you are done, the E520S can fold up into a neat package for storing in your backpack, great for those who enjoy the outdoors.

2. Snaptain- Best Cheap Drone

2-Snaptain S5C

Why you should buy this
It’s an impressive drone for its price that bundles itself with accessories to create an even better flight experience.

Who it’s for
Those looking for a fantastic cheap drone that can be controlled via a smartphone or controller and plan on flying it for long periods.

Why we chose the Snaptain S5C:
The Snaptain S5C delivers a quality flight experience at a price that is shocking — most drones in this price category would be quickly dismissed for

a cheap build. However, Snaptain stands above the rest with the S5C, providing a product that we are happy to recommend. Featuring technology that we wouldn’t expect to see on a drone of this class, the S5C can perform tricks, take off and land with a single button push, and even respond to gesture controls. Snaptain’s mobile app is also supported by VR headsets, providing you with a real-time first-person view of your drone.

We especially like the included accessory bundle that Snaptain packs in with the S5C. For those who don’t care to control a drone using a smartphone’s touchscreen, the S5C includes a hardware controller. Additionally, as short battery times tend to be the enemies of most drones, Snaptain includes two batteries so you can keep airborne longer. Underneath its exterior, the S5C sports a 720-pixel (p) camera for capturing photos and videos that can then be shared via social media easily. Each battery should last you up to 16 minutes per charge, and the drone can fly to a distance of up to 80 m.

3. DJI Spark- Best Selfie Drone

3-DJI SPARK

Why you should buy this: 
Because you want something portable that you can fly without a controller

DJI Spark
DJI’s Spark is one of the most portable and user-friendly drones on the market right now.

Who it’s for:
Anyone who wants to take epic selfies

Why we chose the DJI Spark:

If there’s one thing DJI is good at, it’s stuffing a ton of features and functionality into increasingly small drones — and nothing showcases this talent more than the Spark. Despite the fact that the drone’s hull is roughly the size of a Twinkie, DJI somehow managed to cram in many of the same goodies you’d find under the hood of the Spark’s bigger, bulkier, and more expensive brothers.

Aside from its tiny and hyper-portable design, the Spark’s biggest feature is arguably its plethora of intelligent flying modes. In addition to DJI’s standard stuff, the Spark sports a handful of brand-new modes, including Rocket, Dronie, Circle, and Helix (more on those in a moment). The drone also comes with gesture recognition abilities, which allow it to be operated without a smartphone or controller.

Another big addition is Spark’s obstacle avoidance system. While the ability to sense and avoid objects is usually a feature reserved for larger drones, DJI went ahead and built one into the hull of the Spark. It’s not quite as robust as what you’ll find on the Phantom 4, or even the Mavic Pro, but it still serves its purpose, and helps you avoid crashes.

Oh, and let’s not forget about the camera. In addition to a 12-megapixel camera that shoots video in 1080p at 30 frames per second, the Spark also sports a two-axis gimbal. This lets it mechanically stabilize the camera and cancel out any jarring, shaky movements — resulting in smoother, better-looking footage. This also gives it a leg up on the competition; most selfie drones only feature single-axis mechanical stabilization.

4. Uvify Draco HD – The Best Drone For Racing

4-UVIFY DRACO HD

Why you should buy this:
Because it’s ready to fly straight out of the box, but also modular and ready for upgrades

Who it’s for:
Novice and intermediate racing pilots

Why we chose the Uvify Draco HD:
Uvify’s Draco HD racing drone wins our pick for the best racing drone for a few different reasons, but the first and most important is that it is modular and customizable. This means that you’re free to upgrade or swap any of the

components (like the camera, the motors, the video transmitters, etc.) you’re free to. Don’t get us wrong — this sucker is outrageously quick and nimble even in its stock configuration, but being able to upgrade is crucial if you don’t want your racing rig to become obsolete in a year or two.

The other reason we love this drone is that it’s not super complicated to fly or maintain, so it’s a great choice for beginners and pros alike. Even if you’ve never raced a drone before in your life, you’ll likely be able to learn the ropes with a Draco after just a few hours of practice. Alternatively, if you already have some FPV racing experience under your belt, you’ll feel right at home with this rig.

5. Parrot Mambo – The Best Drone For Kids

5-PARROT MAMBO

Why you should buy this:
It’s stable and easy to fly, and it comes with a range of fun attachments.

Who it’s for:
Kids and adults who want a drone that can shoot darts

Why we chose the Parrot Mambo:
Truth be told, you can get a cheaper drone that your kid will probably go bonkers over just the same, but they’ll actually be able to fly this one. There are a boatload of mini drones out there right now that you can get for under $50 — but in our experience, the vast majority of them are too squirrelly and difficult to master for your average kid.

Parrot’s new Mambo is different. Unlike most other mini drones, this one is actually designed specifically for kids. In addition to a boatload of motion sensors and advanced autopilot software that keeps the drone stable, Mambo also comes with a handful of attachments that make it more fun and engaging than a basic quadcopter. Inside the box you’ll find a cannon attachment, 50 foam cannon balls, and a grabber arm that can clamp and carry small objects.

And the best part? Parrot also gives you the option of piloting via smartphone or with a dedicated dual-joystick controller. The Flypad, as it’s called, is sold separately for $40 bucks, but it might be worth the extra dough if you don’t have a spare smartphone lying around and don’t feel like handing your kid your brand new iPhone every time he/she feels like flying.
