Got a toy drone a couple of months ago, a Syma 8XC for $58. Learned how to fly it and have become a very good flyer. Had some crashes at first but now there isn't anything I can't do with it, a real confidence builder. It has none of that fancy stuff, just pure manual mode and is a whole lot of fun to fly.
Now that I'm a competent drone pilot I've ordered a Phantom 3, which will be here next week. I've seen guys buy these things and put them on auto and go flying. Then something goes wrong and they don't have the flying skill to get their drone out of trouble. I would recommend getting a cheap toy drone, like the Syma, and learn to fly it before getting a serious drone.
One other thing I did, to stay out of legal trouble, was to pay $5 to the FAA to register my drones. That's the one thing they can burn you on that will cost you some bucks.
