    Phantoms are pretty dope. My buddy has one, but I have only a little experience with it. You probably won't be disappointed with it. I bought a racing drone. 
    Pass the god damn butter.

    I don't know. One maybe. It's not big enough to shoot guns without my neighbors calling the cops but at least I got one.

    I have a feeling that I will get a drone for Christmas this year from my mother in law.  
    She asked me if I thought a drone would be cool for her son (who is basically the same age as me).  
    So I have a sneaky suspicion that I'll get some crappy Walmart drone for Christmas this year.

    They're completely useless if you jus usin em as a toy. My boy has a nice ass one, it was like $1500, but he's a videographer, he shoots music videos for a living, so it's more than worth it for him. We shot a lot of scenes for my video usin the drone. As impressed as I was by it, I'd never blow the money on it myself. If you have no practical use for it, buy one of the (Literal) toy ones for like $100.

    How is it useless if you have fun using it?

    I was at the park and they guy was learning how to fly a 70k dollar drone. The guy who owned it was his instructor or something. Anyways it was a pretty dope set up.  Obviously crazy expensive but it looked like it was something fun to learn how to do. it looked something similar to this.

    Because without usin it for camera purposes you're literally jus flyin an RC helicopter basically.

    Phantom 3 advanced 700 bucks...Just for fun and to film the area a little..birds eye view I guess...Pretty much just something to do....Still haven't got it yet...Discussing it with the boss...Maybe I will be surprised This Christmas..I also got The Estes model rocket set for my little guy. Loved those things when I was a kid.

    They are fun as hell to play with regardless of what you plan to use it for. Even most of the cheap one are a decent value for learning to fly. You can get a little micro drone for $10 -$30 and start with that and work your way up. It's dope as hell to be the eye in the sky.

    Jobe,.. as the resident drone expert,... I want to get a small one for my dad so he can fly it around his yard,... or even inside his house.  He normally flies RC Planes,... 
    But then this happens.  
    That is his newest plane that he got 2 months ago.

    Anyways,... I'm not a rich fuck,... but I'd like to get the best $50 toy drone I can get.
    Any recommendations?

    According to a Youtube vid,.. the best Drone under $100 for 2016 is the Kaideng K70C.
    These are around $85.
    Has movable gimble too.

    Under $50 with camera and 2 batteries.
    The Syma X5SC

    Apparently the Syma ones I posted do not have Altitude Hold.
    Which I think is something that I am going to want.
