Christmas drone guide 2019 – the best drones for loved ones

There are many types of drones available on the market all to suit different needs and use cases. Some drones are also designed for beginners to learn the controls, and others are for seasoned pilots to take high-quality content or to turn a hobby into a business.

Today I will be focusing on the best four drones, in my opinion, in the following categories; camera drones, FPV or racing drones, toy or mini drones, and finally beginner drones.

Camera drones

  • DJI Mavic 2 Pro – perfect for the flyer wanting to get amazing camera quality for the size.
  • Skydio 2 (late present) – perfect for the flyer wanting to stay in the action and still get the shot.
  • Autel Evo bundle – perfect for the flyer wanting to get the best bang for buck and still a great quality package.
  • Parrot Anafi – perfect for the flyer wanting to get unique shots with a great drone.

FPV or racing drones

  • Arris X-Speed 250B – perfect for the flyer just wanting to focus on flying.
