Drones under 100 euros

Drones under 100 euros

If you are looking for a cheap quadrocopter, sooner or later you will ask yourself which is the best drone under 100 euros. Many people set 100 euros as the highest mark and many manufacturers also offer cheap models in this price range.

Compared to real camera drones, of course, you have to accept compromises, especially in the area of ​​the camera and navigation, but there are still rays of hope in this low-budget segment. You can find out what these are and which are the best drones under 100 euros in this price guide.

5 good drones up to 100 euros in detail

1. JJRC H36

  • Flight time: 4-5 minutes
  • Range: 20 meters
  • Scope of delivery: RTF

As the cheapest drone that I would like to recommend here, the JJRC H36 ( tested here ) offers everything for beginners and hobby pilots that one could wish for when flying in the apartment or in the garden: small dimensions, sharp acceleration and a robust construction, which also forgives one or the other crash. For a price of around 20 euros, of course, no camera is installed, which is also good in the class of nanod

rones , since this would only mean additional weight (and thus a reduced range/flight time).

2. Hubsan X4 H107D

  • Flight time: 7 minutes
  • Range: 80 meters
  • Camera: 2 megapixels
  • Charging time: 40 minutes
  • Price: 40 euros

Already a few years old, the Hubsan X4 H107 is still a real goldie. No matter which variant you choose, whether with or without a camera, whether 0.3 or 2 megapixels, the Hubsan X4 has its fans worldwide and is one of the best drones in the price range What I learned to appreciate while flying is the robust construction (it was one of my first drones and I mostly flew  ). So minor crashes are no problem.
Plus: From replacement batteries to propellers: there are many suitable accessories for the Hubsan.

3. Blade Nano QX

  • Flight time: 7 minutes
  • Range: 60 meters
  • Scope of delivery: RTF or BNF
  • Price: 60-80 euros

As already mentioned, the Blade Nano QX is my absolute favorite drone. Why? Because he is incredibly agile, fast and lively. With its “weight” of 18 grams and its high-performance motors, the Blade Nano QX is a real bolide that is best used in the garden or in the park. It doesn’t carry a camera, which is a good thing, since it’s just an annoying weight.
So if you want to buy a drone for less than 100 euros and attach particular importance to flight performance and fun flying, you should definitely take a look at the Nano QX. This is available as a BNF (Bind and Fly) and RTF (Ready to Fly) version, whereby a remote control is only supplied with the RTF version.

4. Syma X5C Explorer

  • Flight time: 6-8 minutes
  • Range: 80 meters
  • Scope of delivery: RTF or BNF
  • Price: 80 euros

The Syma X5C Explorer is the Amazon bestseller for drones under 100 euros and has been for years. The Explorer version is an extension of the blockbuster X5C that took the world of affordable entry-level drones by storm 3-4 years ago.

What speaks in favor of the white copter is its beautiful flight behavior, which should also appeal to beginners. Due to its size (31.5 x 31.5 x 7.5 cm), the drone is of course relatively susceptible to wind, which did not turn out to be a major disadvantage in my test flights — after all, all (priced) lightweights struggle with this problem.

Another plus point: a 3.6 megapixel camera, with which nice shots can be taken.

The charging time for the 600 mAh battery of the Syma X5C Explorer is negative: You should plan around 60-80 minutes. The only way to prevent long pit stops is to use additional batteries, which cost €12 in a pack of four with a four-way charger.

5.Ryze Tello: The best drone under 100 euros!

  • Flight time: 8 minutes
  • Range: 50 meters
  • Charging time: 80 minutesF
  • Price: 100 euros

Since the release of the Ryze Tello in April 2018, the race for the best drone under 100 euros has probably been reignited. For everyone who doesn’t know anything about the small quadrocopter: 5 megapixel camera, small selfie modes, app control (or controller, which you still have to buy) and VPS set the bar very high for all other drones in this price range.
If you want to learn more about the Ryze Tello and the commitment of DJI and Intel in the development of the drone, you should take a look at the presentation with all the techs & specs and read the test report on this drone for a good 100 euros.
