Drones for Kids and Beginners

Not all drones are suitable for kids and beginners. Kids drones need to be safe and durable where beginner drones need features to assist in the fundamental controls.

As stated in most of our guides for beginner pilots we recommend drones with position hold, altitude hold and orientation control. These functions will make any new pilots experience enjoyable. For kids drones we recommend a drone with propeller protection such as prop guards. Also a drone that is pretty durable and can take a few crash landings is a good idea. For the best systems available today check out our latest buyers guide below.
