Budding pilots will love the Blade 350 QX RTF, because it can help take their skills from beginner to expert through different control modes. Smart Mode prevents the Blade 350 from flying too close to its pilot, and automated sensors allow the drone to hover in place or return safely to where it started with the flip of a switch. As your air jockey advances, the more robust Agility Mode will allow her to perform more aerobatic maneuvers. Should she want to attach a camera for capturing birds-eye-view footage, the Blade includes a GoPro mount. The base-model Go Pro HERO3 costs $199. Well, there’s always the next birthday.
