The BEST Low Cost DRONES for BEGINNERS (part 1) – My Recommendations

UPDATE: Six months has passed and I made a second video, you can watch it here:
Without fail, I get asked this question almost daily. Every drone in this video would be perfect for someone that wants to buy their first drone but does not want to spend plenty of $$. Pick a drone you like and watch my review of it. All reviews are posted below:

    Hi Captain, Have you reviewed DJI mini 3 pro as if you have i can’t find your review

  2. Bionic Beaver on June 14, 2022 at 11:57 pm

    Any chance you could do another video like this with some of the more recent drones that have come to the market?

  3. Zox on June 14, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    How long it takes to charge drones ? ✌️

  4. Flyle G on June 14, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    Thanks for the videos. Can you recommend a drone for me? I’m a 100% beginner and this will be my first drone. I will learn to fly with this drone. I want to use it for taking videos and pictures of homes for sale as a business. I’m getting my FAA Drone License right now so I can legally do this type of work. Thanks.

    How do we check the wifi protocol?

  7. nightlightabcd on June 15, 2022 at 12:03 am

    But can you get parts, like blades, motors and drives, batteries?

  8. Marcus Moore on June 15, 2022 at 12:03 am

    Can anyone help me know what model number my drone is and if there is a spare parts list to replace one of the lift blade motore-feels like bearing or gear failed. Thanks in advance!

    What do you think of the lu3 drone as currently sold on aliexpress for around $60-70 said to be brushless with GPS, flight time of 25 mins with 2s battery. 5g wifi control app. Dual cameras with optical flow positioning ptz app control on the front camera. Etc etc can it be for real ? Whats the catch ?

  10. John Mel on June 15, 2022 at 12:04 am

    Very informative…thank you..

  11. RM TH on June 15, 2022 at 12:04 am

    Hello, I want to get my father (age 85) a drone. He does not have a smart phone. But…. I could buy him one. He does not need or want smart service. (He has flip phone and land line) Can I just buy a "blank" refurbished smart phone just for the purposes of flying and controlling the drone? Thank you very much in advance. He loves the outdoors but as he is getting older, it is harder for him to walk about, but I think he would love to see the forests and streams and such where he lives.

    One of my least favorite childhood memories is the several gas powered control line airplanes that I built, then crashed. Part of the unpleasantness was those damn screaming engines that caught on fire, cut your fingers and sometimes never even started. It took 2 people to get it in the air, and you needed a whole parking lot early on a Sunday morning. I wonder how you guys would do with one of those?
    We also built our own kites, dinghies, rafts, sleds, working model sailboats, forts, tunnels, trenches, swings, tree houses, gokarts, ice rinks and pole vaulting pits.

  13. souhail shamaissem on June 15, 2022 at 12:04 am

    Nice video but I wish you mentioned the prices as you talk about each one

  14. Yehoshua Kahan on June 15, 2022 at 12:07 am

    Are there any good camera drones for beginners which DO NOT require smartphones? Maybe they have screens in the remote control, something like that? Thanks!

  15. Angel Spake on June 15, 2022 at 12:09 am

    Do I need wifi?

  16. Asad Rehman on June 15, 2022 at 12:12 am

    is there any wearable Drones, that can lift you

  17. Ernie on June 15, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Great vid again! Lost my beginnersdrone yesterday 😞 is there a drone that has a SIM-connected auto-powered GPS-tracker on board, like you can find to trace back your dog. So in case you start a search party, all you need is your phone, I hope you might know the answer ???

  18. Anthony Dellarciprete on June 15, 2022 at 12:14 am

    The question is – if I were your son which one of these would you buy me for my first drone?

  19. Kris Kringle on June 15, 2022 at 12:14 am

    Nine out of ten Drones Prefer Dragons Breath Shotgun Ammo, Shoot em down boys!!!! just your nazi USAF/ARMY spying on you

  20. wordreet on June 15, 2022 at 12:15 am

    2:55 Woah! Back up! I have to make another mug of tea before you go on!

  21. Digital Cleaner on June 15, 2022 at 12:16 am

    No flight time mentioned for some drones. 🙁

  22. wayne nelson on June 15, 2022 at 12:16 am

    I have had the 720E awhile now and my good friend just bought one. He asked me a question I wasn’t sure of the answer but said no you can’t. Question, can we fly these in same area at same time or will there be communication between the 2 of them and not work or crash.?

  23. IAMPUMANORMAL on June 15, 2022 at 12:17 am

    @6:42 that looks like the quad drone scammer thing a majig

  24. Aaron Reynolds on June 15, 2022 at 12:18 am

    I got a kf 101 after watching one of your videos. Great review but after I received it in the mail it won’t connect to my phone. Any suggestions?

  25. Capt Larry - on June 15, 2022 at 12:19 am

    when did they stop DATING Videos ? with technology products a couple of years is forever !

  26. Daddy Bong Angeles Channel on June 15, 2022 at 12:22 am

    very interesting tutorial Sir. Im planning to buy one for my youtube creations. Done like and subscribed to your channel for more videos to watch.

  27. Jor S on June 15, 2022 at 12:22 am

    Wish I had seen this. Bought a drone. Opened it up and it promptly took off and headed full speed into an oak tree, smashing its gears and never flying again. I tried to push land 20 times and it did not respond…
    GPS is definitely a must.

  28. Emil Rodriguez on June 15, 2022 at 12:22 am

    is there a drone so sensitive that won’t crash on a tree or a wall? or auto fly?

  29. Craig Johnson on June 15, 2022 at 12:22 am

    I’ve had shitty luck with the JJPRO X5! 😮
    In my experience, the ESCs start blowing up after less than a few dozen flights. This (of course) renders the drone unflyable. I’ve even had a couple of them fall out of the sky because an ESC went to pot mid-flight. 😣

  30. M e on June 15, 2022 at 12:23 am

    Can drones listen to conversations?

  31. Rides, Roads, and Eats! on June 15, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Love your videos….I started last week with a Mavic Mini 2, so far, so good!

  32. TheMNBlackBear on June 15, 2022 at 12:26 am

    I don’t really give a rip about flying drones; I’m more at taking cool pictures a drone can enable me to take. Which beginner drone would be good for that?

  33. Nijaz Muratović on June 15, 2022 at 12:29 am

    Is there any drone which is invisible and silent? Which makes lowest noise?

  34. davis2022 on June 15, 2022 at 12:34 am

    @1:25 Not a really a low cost issue, but I need a drone that flies well indoors for large building inspections. Have you ever done a video reguarding that kind of capability? Thanks

  35. Catzonian Ball on June 15, 2022 at 12:35 am

    100 bucks is high

  36. wordreet on June 15, 2022 at 12:39 am

    LoL!! I’m watching in March ’22!

    I hate every online registration app used devices, they are full of Spyware.
    It’s easy to make a app that don’t need to have online registrations ect.

  39. chelsea Hamilton on June 15, 2022 at 12:42 am

    Why order a drone or a drone

  40. John's Reviews and More on June 15, 2022 at 12:43 am

    I have the potensic d85, which is the same thing as the bugs 3 pro. Its a great drone! I’ve had it fall out of the sky once due to a user error, and only the propellers were scratched.

  41. skinny Mitch AIR GUN BROTHERHOOD on June 15, 2022 at 12:45 am

    I have a question. The drone I have now is the e88 pro. But when I turn on the app it won’t let me use the controller to control the drone. I have to use the phone as the controller. Which for me is difficult troll the drone. So wondering if you can recommend a drone at either will allow you to record the video and take a picture from the actual controller. And or one that will allow me to use the actual controller but still be able to watch the video in real time from the phone and app. Or can you just tell me what to look for in the description that would tell me if I have that option or not

  42. The Southern Woodsman UK on June 15, 2022 at 12:45 am

    Thanx buddy. Still researching before buying.

  43. bull frogger on June 15, 2022 at 12:45 am

    Could you tell us which companies have the best variety of accessories, like extra batteries, and which have the best service overall? Thanks, this decision just became a bit more involved but I don’t think I can lose too bad with any of these. Is it even possible to pull a battery and slip in a fresh one on all of them? Or any of them? Do any of the controls come with video so you don’t need a smart phone? Thanks. Now I want one.

  44. John Mel on June 15, 2022 at 12:45 am

    Sorry for being a bit dumb but how do l know if my phone has the WiFi 802.11ac ..?

  45. integrachic 29 on June 15, 2022 at 12:46 am

    I have an iPhone 11, is that compatible with the wifi protocol? How do I check?

  46. CAPTAIN DRONE on June 15, 2022 at 12:46 am

    READ THIS BEFORE YOU WATCH THE VIDEO AND POST A SILLY COMMENT. If you want to know the PRICE of each drone or the SPECS of each drone, you have to watch the DETAILED REVIEW of the drone which can be found in the Links below this video.

  47. joejaspervideo on June 15, 2022 at 12:47 am

    4’ to the first drone recommendation

  48. redponte1 on June 15, 2022 at 12:48 am

    OK question, I’ve just started watching you channel. Do you sell the drones you get. If so I’m interested in a dji mini se I can’t get in the UK.

  49. Otavio Fonseca on June 15, 2022 at 12:52 am

    on $300 budget, how about a mini SE for a noob?

  50. Rick Bouthillier on June 15, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Anyone recommend a good beginner drone if you don’t own a cell phone
