With the holidays around the corner, people want to know what is the best drone to give as a gift? I get asked that question all the time, but answering that question is not very easy. My favorite drone is the Mavic 2 Zoom, but I wouldn’t recommend that drone to everyone. Your purpose and your budget are two hugely important factors when looking for a drone. If your goal is to have fun, then I would recommend one of the inexpensive drones on my list. If aerial photography is your focus, then the best beginner drone has been the DJI Spark, but now there is some competition under $400. I’ll take a look at the entry-level competition as well as some of the higher performing birds, like the Mavic 2 Pro.

After the release of the Breeze in 2016, Yuneec’s small consumer drone was quickly overshadowed by the more capable and more popular DJI Spark. But now it is 2018, and the Yuneec Breeze is a bargain at under $200! I’ve tested countless drones in this price range so I am very familiar with the features and capabilities of drones under $200. Even with its limitations, the Breeze beats the competition. I’ll tell you why.

About a week ago, we wrote about the latest drone from Yuneec the Mantis Q. Initially only available in Europe, but now we got an email from Yuneec letting us know that the voice-controlled and foldable drone will be available for pre-order in the US as well. Pre-orders start today. It is priced at $499.99 which puts it well below the DJI Mavic Air and the Parrot Anafi but higher than the DJI Spark. However, if you want the remote control, three batteries, a shoulder bag, and more, the price will come to $649.99, which puts it in direct competition with the drones I mentioned before as well as the DJI Mavic Pro. Let us know in the poll below, which drone you would pick!

With DJI dominating headlines in the consumer drone market with the expected release of the Mavic 2, Yuneec has quietly released a folding drone of their own called the “Mantis Q” that will only be available in Europe. Upon first glance, this drone might look like any other Spark or Mavic Air competitor, but after a closer look, you’ll come to find it has a decent set of specs. Let’s discuss what makes this drone stand out.
