The 10 Best Drones to Buy for Kids & Beginners

Kids love RC’s and Drones. That being said, you don’t want to spend too much money on a drone that is overly complicated for your kid or too expensive where you will be really sad when they break it. Many, if not all, drones that you will find appropriate for kids under 12 will be primarily for indoor use only. They will tell you on the box you can take the drone outside, but since the drone is so light and will most likely not have any GPS lock the chances of the wind taking it up, up and away are very good.

Going with a drone that has a headless mode feature will be hugely beneficial for kids learning to fly. Especially, when flying a drone inside it’s very helpful. You can learn more about it in this video.

I would recommend a starting with a drone under $100.

If you are looking for a drone with a few more features, here is a list of some of the best drones that cost under $300 to buy.
