This keeps coming in and out of stock at well below retail price, a real bargain if you can get one!

Yep, just over the £20 mark - JJRC H31. Waterproof and you can crash it without severe damage. Parts and batteries are cheap too. It's not a mini, but not too big. See if it's suitable, do a google.

Looking for a min sized one, both of the ones you guys reccomend seem too big. Looking for one that can be flown in the house and bedroom.

I have two, me and the lad mainly fly them outside. Great thing is you can use them outside in the winter, unlike most drones. You could use indoors but use the propeller guards to prevent damage to the drone and the room.

I thought the JJRC might be too big....

If you want smaller look at a Hubsan.

I've just been looking at the h31 on Amazon and youtube, it looks superb. What sort of flight time do you get and do you recommend getting extra batteries and propellers?

That JJRC H31 looks great, can even add a 2mb camera to it for £12.

Most drones in this budget range fly for about 12 mins on one charge, so extra batteries and definitely extra blades are a must. That said the H31 has good props, I haven't replaced one yet...it takes a whack really well so it's a good starter.
I think there's a video on YouTube where someone treads on the props and it still flies.
Be aware if you add extra weight ( camera ) flight time reduces slightly.

Thanks for the reply,

I'm going to order one from Amazon aswell.
To be honest I always presumed they were expensive, the H31 looks great value at £25ish.

Hi Teezgaff, where is the camera from?

If you want fantastic customer support I can't fault Revell. We've had their tiny nano quad copter all the way up to their full size drone with had camera. Brilliant for spares etc.

Last bit of advice, buy the white one - easier to find.
