The Parrot Mambo is an awesome mini drone that features some super fun add-ons. It includes a removable grabber arm for swooping in and picking up objects. It also includes a shooter canon that fires small pellets for a bit of air combat. On top of that the Mambo has some fun flight features like flips. Mambo is controlled through a smart device and features a hands free hover mode. An additional controller can be purchased for more tactile flight commands.
The JJRC H36 is a great little starter drone that you can fly round the house or outdoors. Its super to just pick up and play with and its robust design means it can take a good few crashes unscathed. On top of that it has a one touch ‘return to home’ function and once you build some flying skills it can even do flips!
The Visuo folding drone aptly named ’the poor man’s Mavic‘. It is by no means a rival to the Mavic Pro but it does share a similar portable folding body type for a very low price tag, coming in at just 5% of the cost. It features a 10 minute flight time, 720p 2 megapixel camera (unstabilised) and a few decent flight features like one key return to home and altitude hold. It lacks a lot of the smart features that the Mavic Pro has to offer but for the low price tag it is a lot of fun to fly.
Air Hogs Hyper Drift Drone is an awesome 2 in 1 with a clever design that lets you drift race along the ground using the propellers. Then if you hit a roadblock it detaches the drone launching it in to the air! Its shape means that it is always upright and ready to take off, even after big crashes. This is a great way to get in to drones, the Hyper Drift drone is affordable and robust enough to practice your flying skills without breaking the bank as well as being a while lot of fun.
