Drones are a lot of fun, 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 investing in an expensive drone, when a decent discount could translate to hundreds of pounds.

Some are pocket-sized but can still have amazing capabilities, flying high above buildings to capture some seriously impressive aerial photography. There really is a drone for every budget, and it’s a really fun hobby to get into.

Drones are usually categorized into fun drones, camera drones, stunt drone 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.

Where to look for drone deals
