    I want to buy my son a drone, capable of taking photos/video, for Christmas. Can anyone recommend one that’s easy to fly has a built in camera and isn’t silly money to spend on a 13 year old!

    From american company, has barometer so it can maintain height. Makes it much easier to learn. The camera wont be great but none will for this price. I think it will work outside, but it is a mini drone so wont work on a windy day.

    Syma X5C-1. Available for about £40.
    I recently got one of these, good fun for learning to fly it. Seems pretty tough, had a few crashes and got stuck in trees, without damage. Has a camera, but pretty poor image quality.
    Worth buying a few spare batteries as well.

    I’m having a hubsan x4 desire h502e from the wife for xmas. Looks pretty good from what I have seen and it cost her around £65 from amazon. It has a 720p camera and gps with return home mode.

    Definitely! Multiway charger and spare batteries.

    Most of the toy drones only get ~6 minutes flight time, which makes it hard a little hard to progress much. I learnt a lot the first time I went down the park with half a dozen batteries in my pocket.
