As a drone expert, a lot of people ask me what drone to buy, especially to give as a gift. The next most common question is "Should I buy the Fly More Kit?" or "Should I get the bundle?"

Not so long ago the answer was simple – "If you can, yes" – but now I think there are plenty of reasons why you might not need the extras. It depends on two key factors: Who you are buying it for, and how much they'll be using it.
