    I'm curious why the more expensive drones are more crash-prone. I guess I would expect just the opposite to be true.

    If you are not into all that, then a drone under 100 will do. Play with it until you are sick of it.

    If you want to be financially healthy it makes more sense to invest your money in appreciating, not depreciating assets.
    I don't think the OP is asking about a drone as an "investment." He wants to know if folks buy toys. And of course they do. Everyone has toys of different kinds.

    That's true, but not really relevant, unless of course OP can find a used drone that he likes and save a few bucks. Everything isn't about investing for profit. If we all took that attitude, nobody would ever go on vacation, go out to eat, or do anything else that isn't absolutely necessary.

    Nah. Not really into "toys". We're much more likely to spend money on experiences at this point in our lives. I'm typing this message from a hotel just outside of Grand Canyon National Park. We spent yesterday and today hiking and exploring the canyon. That's where I'd rather spend my money. Nothing wrong with toys, certainly. There just isn't anything I particularly care about.

    I have a small remote control helicopter. Hard to fly but pretty fun once you get the hang of it.

    I like my big boy toys. Next on my list is a backhoe, but not until we add on to the barn so it can be kept under roof.

    Toys?

    I'm m looking to buy a drone, haven't decided what price range yet. they go from $40 to over $1000 but I'm leaning towards the $40 pricepoint. Just curious if any of you have a toy in your crosshairs?
