  • Offers quality images despite low price
Drawbacks, not dealbreakers

Adding cameras makes the unit less versatile.


Details: The SYMA X5C is a simple machine built for anyone to use. If your man is a beginner drone pilot, this is a good model to get his feet wet. He can learn to fly it in just a few minutes, and it's a user-friendly device that's controlled via classic RC controllers (with the familiar joysticks). Thanks to the 6-axis Gyro stabilization system, it handles well even in moderate winds, though removing the photography capability will make it even more versatile for tricks.

The drone has a flight time of 5-8 minutes, built-in photography capability, and charge time of 100 minutes. It comes with a built-in HD camera that takes decent images, and it captures video (webcam-quality) in up to 720p. However, this can be remote-controlled, allowing him to adjust the angle, tilt, and zoom before taking photos. It lacks the features of fancier drones, but it's a great option for newbies!

Price: Starting at $35, this is one of the best-priced models on the market. It's an adult- and child-friendly quadcopter that is easy to start using right away, making it an awesome choice for those looking for a first device.
