Force1 Scoot -Obstacle avoidance sensors on a sub-$50 drone?
The Force1 Scoot drone is a unique remote-free drone. Yes, that’s right, there isn’t a remote. So how do you control this mini-drone? You use the force.
The Force1 Scoot
Ok, not the force per se…the Force1 Scoot uses sensors on the sides and bottom of the drone to help it fly. You toss it in the air to get started and it will hover and spin until it senses an object. Then it will fly in the opposite direction of that object. When it senses another object it will reverse direction. It is pretty simple and actually works quite well.
Great drone for kids
The Force1 Scoot is simple and different from anything else we have tested. I thought for sure it would be a lame gimmick, but it is actually a lot of fun. It is surrounded by a soft plastic cage that keeps it from damaging household items if it does, in fact, come into contact with something.
This isn’t a drone for a hardcore enthusiast, but it is a good drone for a child. My children think this little drone is hilarious as they toss it and “chase” it around the room with their hand gestures. This drone makes a good gift and is an ideal stocking stuffer. We have also seen the Force1 Scoot sold as the JJRC HXB-003R.

Force1 makes a lot of quality drones. If you want something basic that has a remote control, then take a look at the UFO 3000 or 4000. It is an excellent beginner drone and also a solid option for children. Learn more about the UFO 3000/4000 here.

Do you want a camera drone?
If you want a good beginner drone that you can control with a remote, the we’d recommend taking a look at the Ryze Tello. It is the most advanced drone you can buy for less than $100. Learn more about the Tello here.

So what is the absolute best drone out there? That question isn’t as easy to answer as you’d think. BUT…for most people the answer is the DJI Mavic Air. It is portable, has an awesome camera and excellent flight modes. Learn more about the Mavic Air HERE.
What Is Our FAVORITE Drone?
The Mavic Air is great but the drone that has us excited to go fly the most right now is the Parrot Anafi. The camera and gimbal setup on this drone allow it to do things that no other drone can. Plus, having the ability to zoom in on what you are filming is priceless. Learn more about the Parrot Anafi HERE.
