9 drones under $50 that your kids will love


6. This novelty drone is perfect for the die-hard Star Wars fan

And here’s where we get into novelty drones. Remember the speeder bike chase from Return of the Jedi? This drone recreates that vehicle with four extra arms and propellers. You may need to use a little bit of suspension of disbelief, but if you squint your eyes just right, you can see a speeder bike zipping through the trees, just like they did on the forest moon.

Like most Air Hogs craft, this drone is made of foam, which is light and durable. If you plow headlong into a tree, like those stormtroopers did with alarming frequency, it’s possible you may damage the drone. Also, with a range of only 200 feet, you won’t be zipping through the trees for very long before you have to turn back. But otherwise the sheer novelty here is the main driver.

This isn’t the only Star Wars-themed flyer in the Air Hogs lineup, but it’s the one we felt best fit into this category of flyer. You can also check out the Millennium Falcon, the X-Wing fighter, the TIE fighter, and the Star Destroyer. Regardless of your choice, you’ll certainly be thinking to yourself, “We’re all clear kid. Now let’s blow this thing and go home.” Or wait. Maybe not.
