Powered by DJI, the Tello Quadcopter is the perfect $99 drone for beginners

Ryze Tello Quadcopter

It’s easy to see why drones have become so popular. Flight, photography, aerial tricks and more — a person’s style of drone piloting is truly individual. And, while drones used to be prohibitively expensive, they’re now easily affordable so anybody can try their hand at flight.

Powered by DJI, The Tello Quadcopter is ideal for new drone pilots as it sports the must-have features high-end drones include but with a budget-friendly price tag of $99. Users can transmit videos in HD 720p resolution (with image stabilization), control the drone using their phone or VR headset, and easily perform aerial flips with a single gesture.

Novice drone pilots worried about safety are covered too, since the Tello Quadcopter includes auto-takeoff and landing, and low battery protection. For those interested in longer flights and shooting more videos, the Combo Kit is available for $149 and includes two extra batteries and a charging hub, plus two additional sets of propellers.
