Drones are everywhere you look these days, though the term “drone” is now used much in the same way “hoverboard” is used when it comes to those little self-balancing scooters that have now begun to invade city streets. It makes sense that quadcopter drones have become so popular, though. They’re a ton of fun to play with, they often pack cameras that let you shoot footage that would otherwise be impossible to capture, and they’re remarkably affordable these days.

Just how affordable are they, you ask? While professional-grade drones like the DJI Phantom series can still cost well over $1,000, drone devices aimed at consumers typically cost a small fraction of that. In fact, we’ve rounded up five different quadcopter drone models you can buy right now for under $100 each — one is less that $35! — and every one of them will be delivered to your door in time for Christmas.
