    The rating system on Amazon is pretty reliable. The higher number of positive ratings, the better. I'd also Google "best recreational (or professional) drones". You can get in cheap for $100. Also spring for an extra battery or two since flying for 10 minutes then waiting an hour for a recharge isn't as much fun.

    I'd looked at drones a few months ago, but chose to forego it for two main reasons:
    1) I have a pilot's license (certificate for purists!). Any drone violations would go against my professional occupation.

    2) Cost. A decent one is about $300+. I have other things I'd prefer to do than add another toy collecting dust in my garage. :D

    Have you seen Planet Earth 2? Lits of drone footage and it's amazing.

    Amazon is great. Annual membership not only brings free 2-day shipping for many products, but Amazon Prime video. That alone is worth $100 to me since it also allows downloading videos so I can watch them when traveling.

    Amazon is kicking Walmart's ass (causing Walmart to step up their game in response) since most of Walmart's markup is on electronics, a main seller for Amazon. Amazon also offers used and refurbished for substantial savings. I've bought several items in that category thus saving hundreds of dollars and backed by Amazon's return policy.

    Factor in the time and gas savings from not having to drive all over town looking for a good deal and Amazon is truly the best way to go.

    Meh... Horseshit.

    He doesn't need to "declare" anything. Shit, I want something? If I have the money I buy it. I have to justify the purchase to no one...

    It's not about justifying the purchase dipshit. He asked which is the best one to buy, I merely pointed out it depends what purpose you have for it.
