As you’ve probably figured already by now, I’m talking about drones, consumer friendly ones.
I’ll guide you through the process of picking a drone depending on your situation.
Top 5 best drones for kids
I’ve created a table with some pretty safe beginner drones that your kid can start flying right away(most of these come with safeguars).
1.The Hubsan x4 mini drone
It’s a popular toy for the hobbyists all around the globe and I recommend this to anyone who’s just starting to fly.
- Great flight control
- HD camera (footage that can be captured on a micro SD card)
- cool look with quality plastic
You can check out a full in depth review made by us a while back.
Overall a safe drone that can be flown both outside and inside.Make sure your kid starts flying it outside first, in an opened area.
This is a neat device with built-in protective frame that prevents anything to touch the propellers from the side. So the propellers won’t break if the drone hits a wall.
I do recommend one or more spare batteries, as with any other drone. To enjoy flight longer check out these amazon spare batteries for the UDI.
The controlling distance is about 30 meters and flight time between 7 and 9 minutes.
It also has a camera that can film and save the footage on an included SD card.
3.Blade Nano QX
A really nimble drone with unbreakable protective gear that bends and attenuates any impact.
This is my favorite for the fact that it flies incredibly well and I think looks cool. Your kid will probably think the same. It has that car racing look that any boy dreams of having. And now it flies!
It also has a fun agility mode(for more experienced pilots) but a begginer mode too. It can do backflips and barrel rolls with ease.
It has no camera but that means it’s even more focused on flying and it’s very steady compared to many others.
It’s basically that beloved toy helicopter that your son gets crazy with but with way more protection in the form of a cool gyro cage!
The gyro ball helps more than making it look like a cool flying ball, it actually makes it crash proof, as the proppelers won’t be touching anything or anyone soon.
It can fly for 6 minutes and has a charge time of 30 min only.
5. Heli Max 1SQ-small and steady
A good looking and light drone with great stabilisation technology on board will make it easy for anyone to fly it the first time.
It comes with a great transmitter that looks and feels professional. This is also a drone that adults will have fun with too. So, buying it for your husband or wife… great idea if they’re into these things.
I has 3 rates settings: low, medium and high . Suitable for any experience.
1.Make sure your kid flies it responsibly and doesn’t go in a rampage, damaging peoples property or even hurting someone.( see safer drones bellow)
If this is the first time your kid flies a quad-copter, make sure you buy him a safe one and check the basics of how to fly a drone!
Here is a table with smaller, beginner drones you might want to look into. These should be perfect for your kid to fly the first time, as they’re not big and don’t present danger when crashing into objects.
2.Buy spare batteries if you want the fun to last for longer.
Kids are playful and they will want to fly the drone for quite some time. And this is good, they’re curious and excited.
It would be a shame if the batteries would take a lot of time to charge! Well, guess what? Most batteries take more than 40 min to charge and can be flown for about 6-9 min.
How do you solve the problem of a bored child waiting for its drone battery to charge?Get more batteries!
Fortunately I’ve got the links to amazon for all the above drones batteries:
Or maybe you just want to buy one for yourself!
In that case…pretty much read what I said earlier, get informed and also check out this excellent guide on choosing the perfect drone for sale!
Make sure you fly safely and not above cars or people, especially if it’s your first time. Go in an open area and enjoy yourself.
