Can get expensive with all sorts of accessories

Yup. You dont want a single point of failure. I have 2 chargers and 5 pairs of props ($55 pair) 4 drone batteries ($130 each) 3 remote control batteries.

It's fun though and still cheaper than cigarettes and alcohol in the long run...

Zero... Just grab a kayak to do this and you'll get some exercise into the bargain :-)

I'm gonna attempt with a low cost drone about 300$ able to lift 500grams at least it doesn't hurt the pocket much ...

Make sure you can use spare batteries. Those with built in ones are not worth the money.
