This Black Friday, there are some fantastic drone discounts to keep a look out for, but many of them are for more experienced drone pilots. If you’re a drone novice though, we’ve found some excellent options from Vantop that are perfect drones for beginners.
Best Buy are currently offering the Vantop Snaptain S5C PRO FHD Drone for just $69.99 (opens in new tab) — that’s a saving of $30. While it doesn’t have as many features as the more well-known brands like DJI and Holy Stone, it’s a great little beginner drone which would also be great for kids, especially with the holiday season right around the corner.
For a slightly more advanced drone for a great price, Best Buy have also reduced the Vantop Snaptain SP7100S Drone by $100, making it $199.99 (opens in new tab) (was $299.99). While Vantop claim that this is the most advanced drone, it’s still a great option for beginners because it’s much more affordable than a lot of the other brands out there.
