Top 5 Best Cheap Foldable Drones

The latest trend in the RC world has been foldable drones. The most notable of which has been the DJI Mavic Pro, but not everybody has over $700 to spend in one go. Thus let’s have a look at the best cheap foldable drones on the market!

Best Cheap Foldable Drones

It’s worth noting that the drones mentioned below are featured in no particular order.

1. Eachine E50 / E50S

Eachine E50 E50S

  • Camera: 720p HD
  • Price: $40-44


The Eachine E50 and its pink version — the Eachine E50S — are probably the most popular cheap foldable drones on the market. They are very affordable at around $40 and the small size when folded make them very easy to carry anywhere.

These drones come with a 720p built-in camera that can also stream live video to your smartphone via WiFi so you’ll be able to fly it in FPV.

Eachine’s E50/E50S feature Altitude Hold Mode to keep the drone at a certain height automatically, which is very handy as flying with your smartphone would have much more difficult otherwise.

The drones come with a 3.7V 500mAh battery that should ensure from 8 to 15 minutes of flight time depending on the usage.

2. JJRC H37

  • Camera: 480p
  • Price: $30-40


The JJRC H37 is practically the same drone as the Eachine E50/S but slightly different in specs. It indeed features a camera that is only 480p against the 720p shooter we’ve previously seen on the E50/S. This small difference is probably the reason behind the H37’s lower price, you will find the drone for around $35, so about $4 cheaper.

Other than that, it comes in a black & white color scheme which some may prefer, it packs the same Altitude Hold Mode and WiFi FPV features of the Eachine E50, also the battery capacity is equal at 500mAh.

3. Skytech TK110HW

  • Camera: 0.3 MP
  • Price: $55-60


The Skytech TK110HW is a relatively cheap foldable drone with WiFi FPV and some other neat features. It indeed comes with Altitude Hold Mode, Hand Launching Mode, and Flight Path Setting. The latter means that you can set waypoints the drone will fly through, but don’t expect it to have pinpoint accuracy because there’s no built-in GPS.

Unlike many cheap foldable drones, there’s an option to purchase the Skytech TK110HW with a controller too, if you prefer it that way.

The drone also features a G-sensor which allows you to fly it by using your phone as a remote. For example, if you tilt the phone forward, the Skytech TK110HW will follow the movement (and so on).

The built-in camera has a 0.3MP resolution and can record/stream 720p video. The included battery is a 3.7V 850mAh for about 7 minutes of flight time.

4. Eachine E55

Eachine E55 Mini WiFi FPV Foldable Pocket Drone

  • Camera: 0.3 MP
  • Price: $33-35

The Eachine E55 is the latest foldable drone to hit the market. The small aircraft packs a 0.3MP 720 x 576 camera that can stream live video at 30fps to your smartphone through the compatible app.

It also features Altitude Hold Mode to keep the drone at a fixed height (of your choice) automatically. The four arms on the drone totally fold in, so you’re able to minimize its size and make it very pocket-friendly (in the literal sense).

Eachine’s E55 is one of the few cheap foldable drones that actually pack a remote controller, which albeit doesn’t look very 2017-ish, it’s still a nice accessory to have.

This pocket drone is fuelled by a 3.7V 300mAh 25C battery that’ll allow you to fly it for around 6-8 minutes.


  • Camera: 0.3 MP
  • Price: $60

Last but not least, we have the SONGYANG SY-X33, a slightly bigger drone that still features foldable arms and most importantly: is cheap.

Just like many other drones on this list, the SONGYANG SY-X33 sports Altitude Hold Mode, a 0.3MP WiFi FPV camera and other basic features such as One Key return and Headless Mode.

The SY-X33 also packs a 2.4GHz remote controller for a better flying experience (in our opinion) and a 3.7V 750mAh battery for 6 to 10 minutes of flight autonomy.
