Syma X5 RC Explorer Quad Copter

The Syma X5 4 Channel 2.4Ghz RC Explorer Quad Copter is a durable and inexpensive option for anyone who wants to get started with drones. Even if you plan on buying a more expensive drone for aerial photography, it's important to learn how to fly it first. The Syma X5 quad copter has the same basic feel as the more expensive drones, making it great for training. It also isn't nearly as likely to break if you crash it.

The Syma X5 does not come with a camera, but for a little more you can get the X5C, which does. The camera that comes with the X5C model is very low quality, however, so this isn't a good choice for taking pictures or video. But this is a great and fun way to build up your quad copter flying skills.

The Syma X5 Quad Copter is available on Amazon, and costs around $50.
