Whether your interest in drones leans toward entering racing competitions without having to build your own aircraft from scratch, or you just need an easy-to-use remote-operated camera for taking the occasional selfies, spending a fortune on a high-end quadcopter doesn't make much sense until you've had some practice manning the controls.
