Well, Black Friday has passed and Cyber Monday is in the rear view mirror, which means time is running out to finish up your shopping before the big day. If your son, grandson, or nephew (heck, even your husband) has asked for a drone this holiday season, we have some information that may help you out. Below, we’ve shared a list of the best drones under $200 to give as gifts for Christmas this year.

Cheerson CX-10C: At $35, it’s the perfect stocking stuffer (even if the built-in camera isn’t great and it only flies 30 meters away from you).

UDI RC Voyager6 U845: This drone, which looks like a typical alien UFO, has a pretty solid flight time. It also records 720p video in a variety of formats.

Hubsan X4 H107L: This small drone is perfect for the beginner, and comes with a remote controller, flies up to 100 meters away, and has plastic components. Plus, it’s only $52.

Syma X5C Explorers: A great value at $64. This drone is about one square foot in size and features a built-in HD camera that shoots 720p video and 2 megapixel still photos. The flight time and operating range aren’t great, but it’s popular and there are plenty of replacement parts available should you crash it accidentally.

Air Hogs RC Helix X4 Stunt: A great choice for a younger child, this drone’s body and rotors are made of plastic and it comes equipped with a remote controller. It comes in a variety of colors, lasts 10 minutes in the air, and costs just $65.
