If you’re shopping for a sub-$100 drone for yourself or as a holiday gift, you have to check out this deal on the Ryze Tello. It’s a beginner quadcopter that comes with some of the features and flight tech found in the more expensive drones, and for a limited time you can pick one up for just $80.
- Industry-leading components from DJI (yes, that DJI)
- Auto takeoff and landing with throw-and-go (just throw the drone up in the air)
- Vision Positioning System facilitates precise hovering
- Take 5MP still shots and 720p video
- Range allows you to operate up to 100m away
- Compatible with VR headsets and controllers
- Runs for up to 13 minutes per charge
- Tello is programmable with Scratch—an MIT-developed coding system
The Tello, for me, is the best sub-$100 drone on the market, and it’s not even close. In this space you don’t typically see DJI-built components or an Intel processor, and you rarely see a 5MP camera that takes 720P videos. Plus it’s easy to learn to fly and it’s very stable—crucial for beginners.
Note: As always, shipping is free with Amazon Prime. For those of you who aren’t a Prime member, you can still get free shipping by signing up for a 1-month free trial here.
