Lets start here: the Hubsan X4 quadcopter is just $37 after the current 29% discount on Amazon, where it averages 4 out of 5 stars from over 500 people read reviews .
So if you've been thinking about buying a quadcopter, you don't have a whole lot to lose on this one.
The X4 is lightweight and durable, with an optional protection ring included that's designed to keep it safe through the inevitable crash.
A 6-axis flight control system with adjustable gyro sensitivity make it very easy to fly, and there's an expert mode that allows for flips.
It even has a camera onboard that records to micro SDHC.
Of course it's no DJI Phantom 3, but I repeat: the Hubsan X4 is $37.
