Aukey Mini Drone with Remote, $23 with code AUKEYUAV | Aukey Mini Drone With Wi-Fi, $23 with code AUKEYUAV

Before you go out and spend hundreds of dollars on a DJI Phantom, you can learn the basics of flying a quadcopter with these $23 toy drones from Aukey. Trust me, if you can fly one of these things, you can fly a GPS-equipped, gyro-stabilized camera rig. And if not, well, it’s not like crashing it will be that big a deal.

Both of the drones below are identical, but one comes with a remote, and the other relies on a Wi-Fi connection with your phone for control.
