A great cheap drone deal can be hard to find with so many fake “deals” around. Being a dedicated deal hunter, I daily check most of the reputable retailers for genuine discounts.
For March, I want to share with you the best drone deal under $100. In my opinion, this is the maximum budget that a newbie should spend on his first drone. If you’re the sort of person who just wants to know what is the best drone for you and doesn’t care about the rest, welcome to your new shopping list.

Being powered by a 250mAh battery, I expect about 3~4 minutes of flight time from this 65mm sized drone. The frontal 700TVL camera is paired with a 48CH, 25mW, 5.8G video transmitter. View Deal
2. JJRC H55 TRACKER GPS drone with 20% off
In addition to the common features (like headless mode and alt-hold), the JJRC H55 has precise GPS assisted one key return to home (RTH). The H55 drone is equipped with a 720P camera which allows taking photos as well as recording aerial videos. Thanks to the WiFi FPV you can display the camera’s live video feed on your smartphone/tablet.

3. JJRC H37 Mini Baby Elfie, now only $49.99 with 3 batteries
The Baby Elfie follows the great success of its bigger brother, the JJRC H37. In addition to the great portability and on-board camera, the Baby Elfie comes with an innovative gyro remote controller. The gravity RC basically eliminates the need for a smartphone to control the drone. By moving the controller up and down, left and right, you will control the movements of the aircraft.
Baby Elfie features headless mode which can be easily enabled. I warmly recommend this mode for newbies as it will help them make their first successful flight with a selfie drone. The 400 mAh battery allows about 6~7 playtime. View Deal

Siluroid XS809W is available with two types of cameras, a basic 0.3MP camera and a more versatile 2MP HD camera. Both versions support WiFi real-time image transmission (FPV).
Like most similar toy drones, it features multiple control modes. It can be controlled with the included transmitter or through your smartphone – using onscreen sticks or a gravity sensor.
