You are a beginner in drone flight and you don’t want to go over the board with your first drone.

Or you just want to make a neat present for someone and you have decided that it is going to be a drone. In any case, it is difficult to find good drones at low prices, so I will make a Top 10 Cheap Drones 2017 list of the cheapest and best drones I could find on the market at this moment.
1. Blade Nano QX RTF Drone
This drone is great for indoor flying at around $80. It doesn’t have such powerful motors, so you could potentially use it outside only if it is not windy. Beginners can easily experiment with it within an apartment or something similar.
2. Parrot Minidrone Rolling Spider
Parrot Minidrone Rolling Spider is more versatile when it comes to where it can function at $80. You can fly it just like any normal drone, but you can also use it on the ground like a RC car. You can even make it look like it’s climbing the walls. You can control it through an app from your smartphone and it also has a basic 360p camera.
3. Cheerson CX-10 Mini Drone
Cheerson CX-10 mini drone at $19.99 should be bought only if you want to have some short fun and in order to learn how to fly. You can try to do stunts with it and show it off to your friends, but that’s about it. It fits in your palm and it looks cool.
4. Hubsan X4 H107C Drone
At around $40, Hubsan X4 H107C is a drone that also has a more expensive FPV-capable brother. Although it lacks the FPV part, it has a camera and it can be flown quite well. So if good maneuverability sounds good to you, then you should try it out.
5. Revell Nano Mini Drone
Another mini drone that can do some awesome tricks and it can be flown around for about $25.
You can fly this cute thing for about 5 minutes and then you will have to charge the batteries for 45 minutes, so don’t forget to buy some spares.
6. Mota JetJat Nano Drone
Again, a mini drone that can fit in your palm and this one is one of the smallest you can find. It also has a neat trick. It can fit in a special container found on the controller and basically the only thing you need to take when you want to fly the drone, is the controller. You can buy this at around $40.
7. Dromida Vista 251mm Drone
A more larger drone, but a more reliable drone also. It can withstand some crashes that may occur while learning to fly it. You also have some extra propellers in case you need them. The Vista also has a FPV version and sadly this version doesn’t have a camera. Price: $65.
8. JXD 509V Drone
The JXD 509V Drone has many features compared to other similar-priced drones and it also has a VGA module camera with decent image quality. If you want a drone for basic camera shooting, then this one might be good for you. It costs around $63 and it can fly around 10 minutes.
9. Syma X5C Drone
10. Heli-Max 1SQ V-CAM Drone
One of the more expensive drones sitting at around $130 it actually features a HD 720p camera that can be used for shooting videos and stills. Heli-Max 1SQ V-CAM has some pretty decent motors, so it can actually be quite stable in the air. So if you want to shoot some simple videos or stills from the air, this drone is a very good choice.
There is a cheap drone for everyone, but that means you have to sacrifice certain features in order to get something decent enough to be flown. So if you want to experiment with shooting videos from above, or just plain and simple flight learning, or you just want to make a present, then this list should be able to help you.
