Battle drones are one of the hottest toys on the market thanks to their exciting, real-life action. These maneuverable, radio-controlled flying drones are easy for kids and adults to use, thanks to intuitive controls and automated functions like “headless mode,” which keeps drones flying in the same direction that the controllers are pointed. Battle drones use infrared lights to “hit” each other and score points. Some models automatically disengage and land once they’ve received the maximum number of hits (usually four), helpful in a multi-drone melee. Battle drones have a short battery life of about 10 minutes, so you should consider buying extra batteries to keep the action going. Beginners should start with lower-priced drones and consider higher-priced battle drones with features like replacement parts and stronger rechargeable batteries once they’ve gained some experience.
