10 of the most popular FPV drones on Amazon this fall – Hypergrid Business 1

FPV drones, or first-person view drones, are a popular item on Amazon this fall.

Normally, you stand on the ground, look up at the drone, and use a controller to tell the drone where to go.

First person view adds a screen to the controller, usually via a smartphone that you plug into the controller, that shows you the view from the drone’s on-board camera via a connected app.

Some drone manufacturers are taking this a step further, providing a VR option in their app and a building a VR headset with their equipment. Now, you can put your phone into the VR headset and feel as if you are literally inside the drone, looking down at the world through its eyes.

FPV drones let you explore the world from a whole new vantage point, and some of them give you a range of up to four miles, allowing you to explore in a way that line of site piloting simply wouldn’t. This is especially exciting for photographers and videographers as it opens up a whole new realm of possibilities, and all of these drones take photos and videos.

All of the drones on this list give you the first-person view right on your phone screen.

With a wide variety of drones available at various price points, including some very affordable options, this fall could be the time to try out an FPV drone for yourself. Half of these drones sell for under $99 so almost anyone can get in on the action. Here are ten of the most popular FPV drones available on Amazon as of this September 2019.

It can also be used with a pair of VR goggles, though you will have to bring your own pair as they’re not included with the purchase.

Despite the low price, customers love it. This drone has more than 2,000 reviews on Amazon, with an average rating of 4.2 stars.

Buy on Amazon for $49.99.

2. Holy Stone HS100

This drone has nearly 2,000 reviews on Amazon, and 76 percent of customers give it five stars. Reviewers also say it can be used in virtual reality mode with any smartphone-compatible VR headset. The downside is that it only has 15 minutes of flight time.

Another affordable drone on the list, this one has foldable and flexible blades, so it’s small and portable. It also has a bonus battery for extra flight time, and sports a one-key start and landing, so anyone can fly with perfect control. One downside is that flight time is just seven to nine minutes, and some reviewers report even less.

More than 1,400 reviews with an average score of 4 starts, plus more than 400 answered questions make this a good bet. You will have to get the VR headset separately, however.
