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:

    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.

    i have the asc 2400 drone

  10. pdyish on June 2, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    YeaYeaYea there really good drones, Why in the hell didnt you say the price ( Relatively ) with each drone

  11. skinny Mitch AIR GUN BROTHERHOOD on June 2, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    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

    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.

  13. John's Reviews and More on June 2, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    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.

  14. Flyle G on June 2, 2022 at 7:11 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.

  15. John G on June 2, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Do you have an updated video to this one since the technology is constantly changing? what drone in the $250 price range for a begineer would you recomend? thank you, John

  16. M e on June 2, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Can drones listen to conversations?

  17. Anthony Dellarciprete on June 2, 2022 at 7:13 pm

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

  18. Bionic Beaver on June 2, 2022 at 7:14 pm

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

  19. Catzonian Ball on June 2, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    100 bucks is high

  20. DUI Survivor on June 2, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    How do we check the wifi protocol?

  21. Nijaz Muratović on June 2, 2022 at 7:18 pm

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

  22. Otavio Fonseca on June 2, 2022 at 7:19 pm

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

  23. Rick Bouthillier on June 2, 2022 at 7:20 pm

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

  24. Emil Rodriguez on June 2, 2022 at 7:22 pm

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

  25. Craig Johnson on June 2, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    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. 😣

  26. dumptonpark on June 2, 2022 at 7:23 pm

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

  27. joejaspervideo on June 2, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    4’ to the first drone recommendation

  28. Marcus Moore on June 2, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    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!

  29. Ernie on June 2, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    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 ???

  30. souhail shamaissem on June 2, 2022 at 7:26 pm

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

  31. John Mel on June 2, 2022 at 7:29 pm

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

  32. wordreet on June 2, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Ok, got my tea, and some beans on noodles. Carry on my man!

  33. Digital Cleaner on June 2, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    No flight time mentioned for some drones. 🙁

  34. bull frogger on June 2, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    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.

  35. Lemon on June 2, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    I don’t have a phone , will the drone still work?

  36. chelsea Hamilton on June 2, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Why order a drone or a drone

  37. CAPTAIN DRONE on June 2, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    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.

  38. redponte1 on June 2, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    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.

  39. integrachic 29 on June 2, 2022 at 7:40 pm

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

  40. Aaron Reynolds on June 2, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    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?

  41. The Southern Woodsman UK on June 2, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Thanx buddy. Still researching before buying.

  42. TheMNBlackBear on June 2, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    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?

  43. wordreet on June 2, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    LoL!! I’m watching in March ’22!

  44. Brumleytown on June 2, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    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.

  45. Kris Kringle on June 2, 2022 at 7:44 pm

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

  46. Jor S on June 2, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    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.

  47. Kris Johnston on June 2, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Hello Captain, I enjoy and appreciate all of your great videos, best drone reviews on youtube! I am quadriplegic and just looking to make some cool landscape videos for my youtube channel and possibly going to try to do a little real estate photo/video work if I can pass the part 107. But that’s a little farther down the road, it will start out just for fun. I’m looking at two different drones and wanted to get your opinion on which is better. I really like the KF101 repeater and the Exo X7 Ranger Plus, would you recommend one of these over the other? And why? Thank you so much in advance, I really appreciate any information, suggestions or recommendations! I hope you had a merry Christmas and I hope you have a happy and prosperous new year!

  48. davis2022 on June 2, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    @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

  49. Yehoshua Kahan on June 2, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    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!

  50. NeoFrontier Technologies on June 2, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    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 ?
