    "DJI Spark RC Quadcopter is a great mini camera drone. The price isn't too expensive and the camera is really good. I didn't even need to use the remote as I found it pretty easy to control with my phone. "

    "This drone connects to your Smartphone and makes it relatively easy to control. Even comes with detachable wheels, so it's just as much fun on the ground as it is in the air. The problem with it though is that the battery does not last long at all. The battery life is very disappointing. Maybe if you buy an extra battery it would be worth it."

    "I'm not sure you can classify it as the best, but the Parrot Ar Drone is great. It takes some time finding one that is reasonably priced and still has so many features like this one, plus one that will record in 720p, since I think 1080 is overkill for this. This is a great buy for the money and the AR Freeflight app works great to pilot the drone from your phone."

    "The Kidcia RC Quadcopter Drone is lightweight, small, discrete and functional. When you buy drones like any other kind of electronics you usually get what you pay for. This drone is actually a surprise when it comes to that statement. I love the fact you can see a live feed right on your phone as your flying. This drone is fun to take out for a spin and see if we have any wildlife out and about. "
