Can anyone suggest a good drone with a camera that’s not too expensive.

Thanks

How do you know how much the OP wants to spend?


Didn't say I know the exact figure other than the max that OP states they want to spend.

What do you define as "not too expensive"?

But much do you want to spend?

Literally no more than £199.99; any more would be hundreds.

Let the OP state what their budget is and what they want to spend rather than guessing on their behalf.

Nobody has guessed the amount OP wants to spend; but no guess required to read that it's less than £200.
Breathe. They said not hundreds anyway...no need to get salty on others behalf when someone is trying to help. It's not 2019 anymore
Less than £100 seen loads on amazon for around £50 and was wondering if anyone has purchased one from there

They are merely toys.

As you need one with a camera for a week I assume it’s to record a trip or holiday - it would be pointless using one of those cheap amazon drones - the cameras are terrible and they are difficult to fly.

If you are on a budget your going to need to stretch a bit over 100 otherwise you’re just wasting your time to be honest.

Look on Facebook/gumtree for a second hand Dji spark or a parrot bebop - they are quite old now but still have decent cameras and very beginner friendly.

Also worth noting - in the uk you now need to register on the CAA website for a free flyer ID and if the drone is over 249g (most are) you must take a online test and pay £9 for an operator ID.

The tello is a great little drone - but it’s again a bit of a toy. Get for flying indoors or in the garden but it’s not suited to distance flying or anything over a gentle breeze.
Fun way to get your kids into drones or as something to play with.
The camera isn’t great 5mp, 720p.

You can grab them for £100 these days new - so if you just want a bit of fun without expecting epic landscape photos and videos it’s worth a pop.
