Hi, it is definitely possible to build a quadcopter for that price. For example, check out our ZMR 250 kit that is a basic kit mainly for beginners that falls well within that budget. We also have a guide article for this build as well as a video. However, if you need something bigger to carry heavy payloads you will need to spend more money to use bigger motors, batteries and propellers.

Hope this helps.

That’s indeed possible. Have a look at https://www.hackster.io/12590/pi0drone-a-200-smart-drone-with-the-pi-zero-4fec08 to get some inspiration.
