    In the last couple years, hobby drones at the cheap end of the market have become better quality with tonnes more functionality, and the LBLA Foldable Aurora Drone is testatment to this.  For under £50 you get a reliable drone which is highly portable to carry, as well as being easy to fly, and with three speed modes it is suitable for beginners and experts too.  The battery gives a very respectable 9 minutes of fly time, following a 70 minute charge, and the 720p HD adjustable camera produces decent quality footage.  There is also a clip-on mobile phone holder on the transmitter which can means you can fly the drone in FPV mode.  The flight range is 80-100 metres which is plenty for a drone of this level.

    The LBLA Foldable Aurora Drone has a 6 Axis gyro to give extra stability and easy handling, and with one-key features such as Altitued hold, Headless Mode and Emergency stop it doesnt take too long to get the hang of flying it even if you are a beginner.  The drone can also perform 3-D flips, and it holds its altitude well due to its light weight of 56g.

    Spare batteries and propellers are readily available, although 2 spare propellers are included with the drone.

    All in all the LBLA FPV Foldable Aurora drone is a perfect starter drone and great value for money.

    Probably the best Pocket Selfie Drone in the budget range on the market, the JJRC H47 Elfie  is slightly larger than an iPhone (15cm x 7cm when folded) and its fully foldable propellers and arms make it highly portable and light.  It has a battery life of around 7 minutes with a 70 minute charge time, and JJRC H47 Spare Batteries are readily available.  The flight range is around 80m.

    The JJRC H47 Elfie  has good quality 2.4Ghz wifi FPV real-time video feed which operates up to 30 metres, and will stream footage to your smart phone with no lag. It takes 720P HD footage and great quality stills, with a beauty mode which helps you retouch photos with one tap.  It also has a number of flight modes including Headless Mode and Altitude Hold, as well as features such as one-key landing, 3D flips and rolls, flight planning, speed control and gyro stabilisation.

     

    The JJRC H47 Elfie uses an innovative Gravity Sensor Controller which allows the drone to follow the way your hands move; you can control the drone with one hand by tilting the controller to adjust the pitch and roll. 

    JJRC H47 Elfie Spare Propellers  are cheap, readily available and easy to fit.

    The JJRC H47 Elfie  is easy and fun to fly.  The controller looks complicated at first but it is actually quite intuitive and easy to get the hang of fairly quickly.  The drone is an upgrade of the JJRC H37 and huge improvements have been made in the build quality, handling and reliability, without a huge increase in the price.  It therefore makes this drone a great buy for the money, and ideal for beginners.
