Drones are a lot of fun to fly whether you’re spending £50 or £2,000 on one. It’s always nice to save a bit of money though, especially if you're buying an expensive drone since a decent discount could mean hundreds of pounds off.

Drones are usually categorized into toy drones, camera drones and racing drones – all pretty self-explanatory. Decide what you want to do with one before you buy, and read our expert buying advice.

Bear in mind that you'll have to register any drone weighing more than 250g in the UK from 30 November.
