This drone, with a 120-degree 720p HD camera on its belly, can capture both still photos and video.

Just sync the drone to your iOS or Android smartphone via the Holy Stone app, which doubles as its control center, and you’ll be all set to take flight up to 328 feet. One of the reasons this drone is ideal for first-timers is because it has easy-to-use controls, and one-button takeoffs, landings and hovering.

So far, it has more than 6,000 five-star reviews on Amazon.

“If you are looking for a beginner drone then look no more,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “All I can say is my 7 year old is playing this drone for days. Easy to learn, has a button which avoids bumping into things also you can just back it right in the remote as a case how cool is that. I love that it comes with spare parts and propeller guards to protect the propeller. Also when you have issues with the drone or spare parts just get in touch with the holy stone company itself. They really stand for their products and it was super easy to communicate with them. No hassle no hidden agenda. From now on we stick with Holy Stone it's really a company you can trust their quality.”

This drone can do stunts like a flip and with the app you can create a flight path for the drone to follow.

"I own a number of other RC planes and Drones, but I am really impressed with this little baby!" shared a rave reviewer. "This little drone is a lot of fun, and could really go a long ways in safely teaching a child to fly a larger drone in the future! It’s even great if all you want is a fun “toy” for your child/children. You can fly it with, or without, the remote! I’ve crashed it a number of times and you can’t tell a thing happened to it. I just pick it up and throw it in the air again!"
