First drone? then yes on the syma. I currently am using an X5hw and it's a good little drone for little money.
Don't be fooled, it is slow, but easy to control. Has headless and normal features, no GPS but auto hover, and great to learn on, and not to much money when it crashes or flies away.
before reading the pro's and cons, I highly recommend starting with this drone..
Great for learning how a drone flys
great battery live for as small as it is (8-9 minutes)
easy to use, easy to connect to a phone, app works great.
Tough little drone, crashes well
flips are fun
handles 3-4 mph winds nicely.
video quality is crap, on par with the surveillance footage you see on the news.
When you are 15-30 feet away from your phone the frame rate on recordings drops to 1-2 fps
range is crap
not really for indoors.... to much side to side drifting.
not your first drone, still on budget? MJX Bugs 3 with go-pro
I found some good drones on Amazon. Just make sure to read the reviews and see what people are complaining about. I only ever really look at the negative reviews for that reason. There are so many drones on the market and your budget is pretty solid. You should be able to get a good one!
