How to Buy Drones and Quadcopters
Drones and quadcopters make great gifts for those who wish to command the sky. Safety questions aside for now, high-tech mini aircraft leave RC planes in the dust. Drone sales have soared more than 60 percent from a year ago. Thankfully, prices aren’t all sky-high. Sure, you can spend well over $2,500 for a camera-outfitted drone, but you can also have hours of fun with a $20 quad. In fact, many popular retailers sell them in-store and online including Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon.
