There are numerous types of drones available such as single and multi-rotor drones, fixed wing, and other. We will keep the list simple:

If you are looking for a drone that you can use in the house, you’ll want to get a micro drone or a small drone. These drones are very small and can range in size from two inches and up. Micro drones are perfect for beginners because they are affordable and a great way to perfect your drone flying skills. Mini quadcopters are an ideal choice for kids as well.
