We know we mention Syma X5C Explorer a lot in this website. We do not want to but whenever we think about an entry level quadcopter, this is the first one that comes to mind. More than 50,000 customers bought this quadcopter only from Amazon in 2015, Christmas and all of them were satisfied with the performance. We did a complete review of Syma X5C here: Syma X5C Quadcopter which you can check. With a standard fly time, easy battery changing and HD camera, this is a great entry level quadcopter to choose.
The next one in our list is a fairly recent one that came into market. The quadcopter comes in different colors and the price is very low compared to the features. The built in camera is non-removable and the headless mode makes this quad faster and smoother. The indicator light function is fun and the overall experience is quite good. The flight time is around 6-8 minutes but you can take care of that with multiple battery sets. Overall, this is another good option to go for.
If you care for strong stability along with great movement, this is the quadcopter that you should target to go for. The Akaso has some interesting features such as one click 360 flip, blade protection and so on. The camera is built in and it takes ordinary images (nothing to be excited about if image is considered). The transmitter is good, the controlling power is excellent and the LED lights always make it more fun at night. Overall, this is a good option to go for.
UDI U818A is probably the most feature enriched quadcopter in our list of best quadcopters under $100. This one has quality features such as HD camera, good battery and excellent transmission. The quadcopter looks different and the 1GB micro SD that comes with the package makes sure that you can click and record as much as you want. Overall, this is possibly the best one in this list. The quadcopter has a huge sales record like Syma X5C and users loved it for the last one year. You can easily trust this one.
We did a complete review of Holy Stone F180C earlier which you can check if you are interested for a detailed review of this brilliant quadcopter. Holy Stone has a classy look along with interesting features that make it one of the most desired quadcopter in the list of best quadcopters under $100. It is a mini drone and it can fly up to 8 minutes with one charging. Obviously, you can increase that with multiple batteries. The quadcopter comes with 2 in one battery charger, card reader and bonus batteries so you do not have to worry about extra costs. Overall, this is a great entry level quad for practice and fun.
