There are an abundance of drones out there on the market, but here in this guide we break down what drones according to 4,532 of our customers are the top 5 under $100 and why they are to help you with your purchasing decisions. All of these drones are perfect beginner drones, and drones that you can grow with.
This small drone is one of the best drones out there for anyone looking to try out flying for the first time, and at $24.99 it is also one of the cheapest. It features a button that when pressed causes the drone to return to where it took off from. It also performs 360 degree flips at the touch of a button, features LED lights, beginner and professional modes and can be flown both indoors or outdoors, making it the best drone out there in its price range. For anyone not wanting to spend a large amount on a drone but do not want to compromise on features, this is the perfect drone for you! You can find more information and purchase the Eachine H8 here.
The Syma X5C is one of the best beginner drones out there and also one of the most popular. It features a HD camera that allows you to take photographs or record video with the touch of a button. The drone has excellent performance both indoors and outdoors and an abundance of cheap spare parts and accessories. At only $49.99, it will not be breaking the bank either. For those who are willing to spend a little more on a drone and want to get into the world of aerial photography and video this is the best drone.

The UDI U818 at $59.99 has the features of the Syma X5C while being enclosed in a much more durable foam frame with enclosed propellers, much less likely to cause damage. The U818 also features an onboard HD camera, can be flown indoors or outdoors and can perform flips at the touch of a button.

WL Toys V959
This is my favorite drone by far and I believe the best drone out there. If you are willing to spend a little more for it, $74.99, you will have endless hours of entertainment from it. The drone has similar features as the previous two, featuring an onboard camera, flips at the touch of a button and the ability to fly both indoors and outdoors. On top of these features this drone benefits from 4 speed settings, allowing you to start out slow and careful and unleash its potential as you become better at flying it. The drone also benefits from a circuit board that allows you to easily plug external accessories into it. You can plug in a bubble blower, gun shooter, water sprayer and winch with basket, all providing endless hours of entertainment and making this the best drone for functionality unlike any other.

Despite this drone violating part of our conditions, specifically on its cost, at $104.99 coming in above our $100 target, I believe it deserves a mention. This drone has all the features of the Syma X5C, featuring LED lights, an onboard camera, the ability to perform flips and the ability to fly both indoors and outdoors. In addition to this the drone can also be equipped with a GoPro holder, allowing you to fly your GoPro around without having to shell out several times the amount of money to buy a DJI Phantom. The Syma X8C is also the same size as a DJI Phantom, with most DJI Phantom accessories fitting onto it easily. If you ever upgrade your drone to a DJI Phantom in the future you can bring over all the accessories with you saving money. Despite this being a beginner drone, we recommend at UAV Systems International that you do not attach expensive equipment like a GoPro to your drone until you are fully familiar with flying it. The great benefit that makes this one of the best drones out there is that once you have practiced flying the drone and are confident, you can attach your GoPro to it, taking your drone to the next level without needing to shell out any more money.
