Are drones a good present this Christmas

Picture1There is no denying the fact that all kids love playing with the latest in toys and gadgets. You would have to be a fool not to. RC (Radio Controlled) toys have been quite popular for a very long time now although recently the cars and trucks have been left behind for unmanned aerial vehicles. I’m talking about drones. These drones are the latest fad among youngsters and are available in a number of different shapes and sizes.

So if you are thinking of doing your kid a favor and getting him a drone this Christmas, here are a few of the things which you need to know and a few of the answers you will have to find so as to ensure you make the right choice. Unless you know what you’re doing, you may just end up with the wrong drone and that’s not going to be fun for anyone.

The first thing that you will need to look into is the size of the drones. They are available in a number of sizes. Some of them are very small, called Nano drones. Some of them come with a huge range and have more battery life which allows you to fly them around for a longer period of time. Some drones come with 4K cameras on them while others don’t have a camera at all. And it is obvious with such a wide disparity between drones that some of them are really cheap while others can be quite expensive. It goes without saying that the more expensive the drone, the more careful you will need to be while flying it. So it’s probably not the best option to go with a really expensive drone if you’re going to be gifting it to your 12 year old for Christmas. There are a lot of fun sized Nano drones from which are quite cheap and offer a great experience for children.


These are just a few of the things which you will need to keep in mind when it comes to buying the perfect drone for your child.

One last thing which you should know about drones are the rules and regulations. This is really a grey area which hasn’t clearly been spelt out yet. You need to be careful about not only the privacy of your child but also the privacy of the people around you. After all, you wouldn’t want to get involved in any unnecessary trouble now would you?
