This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in March of 2019. Drones are high-tech, sensitive pieces of equipment, designed solely for exploration and furthering scientific inquiry ... so, naturally, you're going to want to make them fight. The models on this list are made for battle. Some have infrared systems that register hits, while others use apps or even physical impacts to prove their dominance. Luckily, most are built to withstand some abuse. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best battle drone on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

April 05, 2019:

There are several "Star Wars"-related models on this list, and they're built a little bit differently from the others. First off, their app is a much more prominent part of the experience, as it allows you to battle virtually as well as in-person. Also, they're capable of serious speeds, so they're not suitable for indoor use. They're much more attractive than most of the other options here, so you may find yourself wanting to be more careful with them — or not even taking them down off the shelf at all.

The Holy Stone HS177, on the other hand, was born to be played with. It's easy to control, so you can focus more on dogfighting than on trying to fly in a straight line. It's also capable of surviving collisions, whether with the ground or another machine.

If you really want demolition derby-style combat, though, go with the Air Wars. It's made to bump, crash, and smack the other drone out of the sky, and it comes with 10 weapons to give you destruction options. Parents of young kids might want to start with it, because let's face it: regardless of what you buy, they're going to make the drones smash into each other, so you might as well get one that's made for it. That said, it's one of the more finicky models listed here, so make sure your children are ready to deal with a learning curve.
