5 Best Cheap Drones Under $50 For Beginners

This is a category where there is a lot of abundances especially those manufactured by Chinese companies. This means it is even harder to choose the best among the bests.

 

1. EACHINE E010

The Eachine E010 is the drone that I recommend to every beginner that wants to learn how to fly a drone. Eachine E010 is what I call the simple yet perfect beginner drone. It is a quadcopter that can be crashed over and over again and can teach you the basics of flying a drone without much effort.

Its whole canopy is made to protect the propellers which means it is super safe to fly inside the home. So it is the best-recommended drone for kids and beginner pilots. This is simply a reliable drone with a replaceable battery and high durability. It doesn’t come with a camera so if you really want one with a camera, check out the other options below.

 

PROS CONS
  • DURABLE
  • EASY TO FLY
  • WON’T FALL IF IT HITS THE WALL
  • SPARE PARTS EASILY AVAILABLE ON INTERNET
  • NOT MUCH FEATURES
  • NO CAMERA

Its price on Banggood is ₹1246.35/- and on Amazon is $23.99.

 

2. JJRC H345

The JJRC H345 is not a new release drone but still selling well in 2020 and people simply buy it because the advantage of this setup is that you don’t have to change the battery, just change the drone entirely and start flying again. Inside the packet, you get two drones for the price of one. Its design is somewhat similar to jet-drone. They have replaceable propellers and can also be flown indoors. It is an advantage of having two drones instead of two batteries because if in case one breaks you still have another one as a spare. So they’re perfect for beginners who plan to crush a lot. They don’t have cameras instead they come with a very bright LED in front which can make nighttime flying a very interesting task.

PROS CONS
  • 2 DRONES FOR THE PRICE OF ONE
  • HAVE A SPARE IF ONE break
  • FOLDABLE
  • DURABLE
  • LED LIGHTS
  • BATTERY DOESN’T LAST LONG
  • NO CAMERA

 

 

Its Price on Banggood is ₹2177.01/-.

 

3. HUBSAN X4 (H107L )

The Hubsan X4 has been for quite some time on the market right now. Yet it’s still one of the most solid quadcopters in this price range. This drone includes full 4 channel 2.4 GHz control with a powerful motor.

There are quite a few models of the X4 including cheap ones without a camera and if you want with a better camera you can find a few options on Amazon that have a 720p FPV camera that can record fairly well at their price. This drone has always been solid in the great beginner flyer and thus makes its position in the recommended list in 2020.

PROS CONS
  • A FEW OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM
  • GOOD CAMERA IN 2020 AT THIS PRICE
  • DURABLE
  • GOOD QUALITY PLASTIC
  • EXPENSIVE AT SOME PLACES, DEPENDS FROM WHERE YOU BUY

 

 

Its price on Banggood is ₹3280.93/- and on Amazon is $25.99.

 

4. EACHINE E013 “Small Pepper”

The Eachine E013 is the best cheap drone I consider in comparison to above all. It is a drone that comes in a box with a pair of FPV goggles and a nice controller., so getting the whole package for under $50. You can fly the drone around your home while sitting in the house, wearing on the googles to monitor the drone. It is a great buy, without any objection. The good part about this drone is that you can still use the 5.8GHz goggles to fly other FPV drones if you plan to upgrade. So, I think this is quite the perfect starter for anyone who wants to get into FPV or simply start flying as a beginner quadcopter.

PROS CONS
  • FULL FPV PACKAGE
  • CAN USE FPV GOOGLES FOR OTHER 5.8GHz CAMERA DRONES
  • GOOD FOR FLYING INDOORS
  • SHORT BATTERY LIFE (BUT YOU CAN BUY MORE)

 

 

 

Its price on Banggood is ₹3838.89/-.

 

5. HOLY STONE HS190

The Holy Stone HS190 is another small but powerful drone on our list. This drone can be charged either by a little wire which is housed inside the controller or can be charged via a USB power cable. Since it is a mini drone it flies for around 10mins in the air with a full battery and takes almost 1 hour to fully charge.

However, you can also go for its higher version HS190W which has some cool features like it can be connected via Wi-Fi to your smartphone and you can control and monitor the drone direct on your phone’s screen.

PROS CONS
  • PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS
  • HIGH DURABILITY
  • RESPONSIVE
  • TRUE VALUE FOR MONEY
  • NO CAMERA

 

 

 

Its price on Amazon is $32.99.

 

6. PROPEL STAR WARS

best-cheap-drone-PROPEL-STAR-WARS-Speeder-Bike-Collections-Edition

The Propel Star Wars Drone was the cheapest drone when it first came in the market but for now, due to high competition from the Chinese market, it became a little costly but still affordable.

This drone was considered for its great build quality compared to its price. The packaging of the drone is absolutely stellar and the controller is a really good quality one with hobby-grid sticks. This drone comes in three variants but the most popular is Speeder Bike Collectors Edition. It comes with a Star Wars sound and flipping ability.

PROS CONS
  • HIGH BUILD QUALITY
  • GOOD PACKAGING
  • COMPLETE ACCESSORIES
  • 2 BATTERIES
  • GOOD QUALITY TRANSMITTER

 

  • BATTERY IS A BIT HARD TO INSERT

 

 

 

 

The price of Speeder Bike Collections Edition is $49.94 on Amazon.

 

CONCLUSION

The cheap drone list goes from $50 to $500 and there are some better options at slightly higher price ranges. So, if your budget can go a little bit higher then you can check up out those too. For a beginner, I still recommend one of the cheap ones on this list.
