I looked at the ones below 200 and below 300. The reviews were very disappointing. The percentage of 1 start reviews is too high to think trolls or people that aren't capable.
Dead batteries that won't charge, software glitches that let the drone take off never to be seen, engines just quitting, failure to return, and general lack of support across companies.
I thought this would be a fun thing for him but I don't think he needs something to work on or something for $250 that flies away.
I hope somebody will have a better review and long term experience. I think that a lot of these companies must be run out of their garage.
