Usage of drones has expanded far and wide, initiating from military use, it expanded to journalism, search & rescue to even as household toys. Number of rotors define the name of the drone and in case of this list, we are investigating ones with 4 propulsion rotors or also known as QUAD-copters. Number of different rotors define the scale of work the drone can perform, if you want carry something heavy you would go with high number of  rotors, where as if you are a beginner/casual hobbyist who is interested in buying something easy to fly/control so that you can snap some impressive pics of your friends and your neighborhood then we would recommend getting something similar to quad-copters.   We have ranked the best budget drones on offer, the criteria was basically our own experiences coupled with reviews from manufacturer websites & amazon.
