DJI Mavic Pro

Get­ting cre­ative with aerial pho­tog­ra­phy has never been eas­ier. The com­pact Mavic Pro is equipped with a top-notch sta­bilised 4K cam­era, handy ob­sta­cle-avoid­ing sen­sors and au­ton­o­mous flight modes to help you nail your shots. You’ll get an im­pres­sive 27 min­utes of air­time with each bat­tery charge too.

GoPro Karma Drone

Send your HERO5 ac­tion cam­era sky­ward aboard GoPro’s ad­ven­ture-seek­ing drone. Fly up to 35mph with the gam­ing-style Karma Con­troller, com­plete with a 5-inch 720p screen, and share the view via GoPro’s Pas­sen­ger app. Back on terra firma, re­move the Karma Grip to shoot hand­held, gim­bal-sta­bilised footage.

Lego Cater­ham

68 years since its in­ven­tion, LEGO still thrives. T3’ s 2017 pick is this faith­ful 770-piece replica of the clas­sic Cater­ham Seven 620R kit car; par­tic­u­larly the in­ter­ac­tive el­e­ments, in­clud­ing re­mov­able en­gine and en­gine cover, and open­ing boot, with four axle stands which can be used to re­move the wheels.

Par­rot Mambo

The tiny Mambo is one ca­pa­ble drone. The app-con­trolled UAV fea­tures two at­tach­ments - a ball­shoot­ing can­non and a grab­ber ca­pa­ble of lift­ing items up to 4g - for aerial com­bat or pre­ci­sion trans­porta­tion mis­sions. Learn­ing to fly the Mambo us­ing your smart de­vice is easy; it’s mas­ter­ing stunts that’s the real chal­lenge.

Pro­pel Star Wars drones

The force is strong with this col­lec­tion of of­fi­cial Star Wars drones. Blast into hy­per­space, up to 35mph, at the con­trols of a 74-Z Speeder Bike, a T-65 X-Wing Starfighter or TIE Ad­vanced X1, be­fore mas­ter­ing aerial stunts and bat­tling it out in laser dog­fights with other Star Wars drones. Take that, Rebel scum!
