The Vortex 9 is the definition of a trusty starter drone. Connected via WiFi, this headless, compatible flyer has all the key features you’re looking for in a drone, including everything from a 6-axis gyroscope, 4-channel flight control, and a stellar 4K camera for crystal clear images and video.
Ninja Dragon J10X Wi-Fi RC Quadcopter Drone with 4K HD Camera ($84.15 after code SAVE15NOV; regularly $199)
Meanwhile, the J10X raises the game, sporting three different flight levels and a six-channel control system for even greater stability.

Ninja Dragon Max Flip Headless HD Camera Gesture Control Drone ($84.15 after code SAVE15NOV; regularly $169)
The Flip includes a pair of features centered around its fun name. First, you can flip this quadcopter drone into the air with a flick of the wrist to get it airboard. Once it’s in flight, it’s also a pretty nifty little stunt flyer too, capable of all kinds of flips, spins, and other impressive aerobatics.
Ninja Dragon Alpha Z PRO 4K Wide Angle Dual Camera Drone ($84.99 after code SAVE15NOV; regularly $199)
If one camera is great, why not two? The Alpha Z Pro not only houses a powerful wide angle 4K cam at the front, but it’s also equipped with a second 1080p HD camera on the bottom. With both cameras available, pilots can get brilliant real-time images from both angles, all recordable for a variety of aerial footage to fit all your visual projects.
In addition to folding up for easy transport everywhere, the Blade X also comes with a pair of on-board cameras as well. With its optimized waypoint flight system, fliers can get a full 360-degree flight view, all with stabilization abilities for the best possible images and even 1-click takeoff and landing function for a smooth flight.
If you’re trying to get someone new into the drone hobby, this starter craft is a smart introduction. This remote-controlled quadcopter has easy-to-understand control, all in service of a 3-axis gimbal for the most stable shots to go with the dual 4K camera array.
Bronze Senior GPS 4K Dual Camera Drone 106 with Gimbal and EIS ($67.96 after code SAVE15NOV; regularly $320)
Slip your smartphone into this convenient controller, sync via WiFi, and this drone can be skyward in a matter of seconds. Equipped with a 3-axis mechanical gimbal and electronic image stabilization for steadier photos and video footage, this drone has a control distance of up to 1,200 meters so the craft can be navigated from a taller height or longer distance.
It’s another sub-$60 model that still has a lot of the same features and perks like models two or three times more expensive. The 4K camera captures stellar images and video, all while the altitude hold mode on this dual-camera quadcopter stabilizes flight so pilots can keep an eye on getting a better picture instead of working about drone steadiness.
With the built-in WiFi module, you can see exactly what your camera sees with live video via your mobile device. This aircraft makes flight so easy that all pilots have to do is draw the flight plan on the map from the accompanying app, and this dual-cam flyer will follow that path to the letter. And the high capacity battery will also help keep this drone flying for up to 20 minutes on a single charge.
As opposed to these other drones, the Blackhawk is not under $100. But trust us, you get what you pay for with this premium flyer, including ultra responsive flight controls, enhanced gimbal stabilization, video tricks like timelapse footage, and an extra-special package of 4 easily swappable battery packs. That can help keep this drone in the air for almost three hours before you need a full recharge.
