Top Features | Best Micro RC Drones

  • Our Rating – This is based on our own research in product testing and user feedback. Clicking on each product takes you to the product page where you can read customer reviews on the product you’re interested in.
  • Camera – Only some micro RC drones have cameras built-in, and even then, they’re usually limited in regards to quality and shooting (some can only record videos and not capture photos). If you have use for a good camera drone, then you may want to consider getting a mini camera drone or a HD camera drone instead for their much better recording abilities.
  • Range – How far can the micro drone fly before losing signal with the transmitter (remote control)? Some models have a range of up to 150 metres and some as little as 20 metres.
  • Memory – For micro RC drones that have a camera, the recordings are automatically stored on an external micro SD card, which is usually not included. Their maximum capacity is generally 32GB, though some may be lower.
  • Actions – Flying a drone can be pretty repetitive if it cannot do anything else other than flying, which is why manufacturers are installed technology which allows the drone to perform various manoeuvres such as flips and turns and flashing of lights. The best micro RC drones can even provide live video feeds and telementary info (altitude, distance etc.).
  • LCD Display – Certain transmitters has an LCD display which shows various bits on information including battery life, distance, altitude, flight duration etc. These vital pieces of data helps the pilot to decrease the chances of his drone crashing.
  • Smart App – Due to their low cost and inclusion of basic remote controls (transmitters), practically all micro RC drones do not have a downloadable app to install on their smartphone or tablet which allows them to control the drone using their device.
  • Price – If you want to know the price of any of the models, just click on the Buy Now button or Check Price and you’ll be redirected to the product page. The reason we don’t put prices is because they constantly change and there are so many sellers offering different prices.
Top 5 Best Micro RC Drones
A micro RC drone is the least expensive type of drone, and a perfect way to practice how to fly a drone.

Who Are Micro RC Drones Ideal For?

If you’ve been looking at the different types of drones there are, you’ll have noticed that they are ones of varying sizes – big, small and smallest. Micro RC drones are at the lower end of the scale, but they are nifty little gadgets for the following types of people.

  • First Time Drone Pilots – There are plenty of things that can go wrong when you’re flying a drone – crashes that break propellers and damages the “engine”, damage from water and complete disappearences. For first time drone pilots, it’s advised to start flying by practicing with a micro drone or at least a mini drone since they’re cheaper and easier to control.
  • Strictly Hobbyists – If you want to fly a drone as a hobby or just for fun, then a micro RC drone is a great product to start with. They strip down some of the more advanced features seen on the top RC camera drones, which may not be of any practical use to you, such as HD video recording, GPS and flight logs. While those features are interesting, they cost a lot and are better suited to people whose profession involves the use of a drone.
  • People on a Tight Budget – For as little as £15, anyone can experience the joy of flying an RC drone, albeit a micro sized one. This makes them particularly appealing for teenagers and young adults who are either on a tight budget, or making their first foray in drone flying, or both.
