Drones ??

Folks,

Can you recommend a good drone on alibaba? I'm looking at something like DJI Mini 2's equivalent(ish)?
Please thank me if you find this helpful

I bought a JJRC drone that was supposed to be as good as a DJI. Turned out to be utter crap. Couldn't even hover in place and would keep flying off. Bought a DJI and that drone is amazing. Easy to fly and super stable.

There is a world of difference between DJI and the cheaper drones. I would not recommend going for the AliExpress drones.

Only goodish one is the Fimi (Xiaomi) ones, but they also have some quirks.

Like kramer1 said, the JJRC (Bugz) are just garbage. They say they will have X amount if battery life, which it won't even come close to hitting.

Honestly, better off spending the money on a new or used Mavic Mini.

Save yourself from buying several knockoffs or off brand drones and go straight for DJI.
