Drones are fun for the whole family. That is why today we bring you the best drones for kids. These drones are Ready-to-Fly out of the box and prioritize a simple and easy flight, as well as the affordable price.

Conquer the Sky with the Spaceship from Star Wars – RC Fighter Shape Drone for $65.83

 

From one of the most popular movie franchises — Star Wars, this Fight Shape Drone is very fun to fly and at the same time is great for kids or beginners.

Design

This drone has a very unique design, unlike any other currently in the market. It is a replica of the TIE Fighter, the iconic spaceship from the Imperial fleet. The product dimensions are as following: 7.09 x 7.09 x 5.91 inches. It does have 2 LED lights below the spaceship’s cockpit, resembling two shooting lasers. The drone is heavier than most toy drones, weighing 700g.

Features

RC Fighter Shape comes with standard features, such as Headless Mode (just press the upper buttons on the 2.4GHz remote controller simultaneously). When you activate Headless Mode, the quadcopter becomes easier to control, great for beginners. The quad also features 3D stunt flips, with just the push of a button, it will do a 360º trick in air. On top of this, it has the built-in 6 Axis Gyro, a very common control system that makes the aircraft much more stable.

Flight Time & Control Range

RC Fighter Shape can be flown both indoors and outdoors, it’s a very gentle flyer. It has a maximum control range of 50 meters, a long distance if we compare to other same-price drones. It is powered by a 3.7V 350mAh LiPo battery that takes around 40 to 50 minutes to completely charge and provides a flight time of 5 to 8 minutes.


The Most Portable and Safest Drones - HAPPYCOW 777 Sky Phantom for $17.50

 

The perfect fit for younger kids. If safety is a big concern, you will be very happy with this drone. It has a protective frame that fully surrounds the quadcopter, ensuring maximum safety when crashing or hitting an object.

Design

Because safety is always a priority, especially with younger kids, there is a quadcopter that ensures nothing goes wrong. HappyCow 777 has a fully protective frame around the all aircraft. Shielding its motors and propellers and ensuring durability for the quad and a safe flight. It is very lightweight (119g), small (2.95 x 2.56 x 0.98 inches), and it doesn’t have enough power to make damages or hurt someone. It is also important to mention the design of the remote controller, it functions as both transmitter and protective case to store the drone (easy-to-carry design).

Features

HappyCow 777 focus mainly on its protective design and ease of use. However, it does come with three more fun features (besides the already mentioned): 3D Roll (press a button and quad does a 360º flip), Speed Switch (alternate the speed between low, medium, and high) and one LED light that beautifully flashes in the dark (helps guidance at night).

Flight Time & Control Range

It’s also very lightweight (210g).

Besides this, it also features the regular 360º aerial flip and 2 different flight speeds (low and high).

Flight Time & Control Range
