The market seems flooded with choices, from Quadrocopters to Hexacopters, UDI, Syma drones, Parrot (with Skycontroller) and DJIs.
In this drones comparison, I go over all the most common questions and offer you a detailed product description and information about Quadrocopter with and without camera and the direct link to the lowest offers.
Buy a Drone: Which Drone should I Buy?
Remote-controlled quadcopters can serve a variety of purposes and be aimed at various pilots. For this reason, it is almost impossible to give a general answer to the question of which model is universally recommended. Nevertheless, you should approach buying a drone analytically and clarify these basic questions: What do I want the drone to do? Do I want a fun toy or professional looking videos and photos? Can I afford to crash and break my drone?
Who wants to buy a drone?
Questions, that you should ask yourself before buying a drone:
How much experience do you have with the drone controller?
How much money would you spend on the Quadcopter?
How big should the remote-controlled drone be?
Do you want to buy a drone with a camera?
Which remote control should be available? Classic remote control or smartphone/Ipad/Skycontroller?
Based on these fundamental questions, it is easier to categorize the most popular quadcopter drones and evaluate the drone, equipment, robustness, camera quality and suitability for either a drone beginner or a advanced pilot.
The question of who should fly the drone, is of course, very important.
If you are a beginner who has no knowledge of the construction of a drone nor have any have experience with airflight and control? Then you should buy a mini-drone with camera to 100$, or a mini-drone to 50$.
As a beginner would be unable to cope with the functions of a highly sensitive drone and it could result in a crash episode, so I recommend to start with a simple, robust model, as the UDI U818A Quadrocopter or Syma X5C mini drone.
Do you have decent experience with flying a drone, then you should go for a quality drone with camera. DJI (Phantom) quadrocopters and Parrot Drones (AR.Drone 2.0 with Skycontroller) are highly recommended and can provide great aerial shots.
What can a drone be used for?
A Quadrocopter can perform a wide variety of tasks. Equipped with a drone camera, you can record videos, take aerial photographs and look at the world from a bird’s eye view. After several flight tests even the drone beginner can also perform clever maneuvers, even loops, that will give you instant satisfaction. Once more I speak from personal experience!
When you start becoming an accomplished drone pilot, you could even take up drone racing or professional aeria video shooting.
If you want to buy a drone, you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money. The price range of 30$-70$ you can already make a bargain or two. Drones like the Hubsan X4 V2 MikanixX Spirit X006 or Revell Quadrocopter be mentioned here.
Beginners drones with cameras: Inexpensive and robust.
For beginners I always recommend a remote-controlled drone with camera. BEven after shooting the first video, you can see the world from different perspective and a long-term motivation will rise up inside you, most likely. Great aerial photos are a true eye-catcher for observers and friends. Quadrocopter in price range of around 100$ already provide a permanently installed camera, some with HD capability. In this price range, the drones are very robust and in case of damage, easy and inexpensive to repair. In Youtube you can find tutorials for easy repair.
The small quadrocopters be delivered ready to fly (RTF = Ready to Fly), which means that you only need to insert the battery and you can take off immediately. For individuals, who wish to purchase a drone and have no knowledge of the different models, these are absolutely ideal. Therefore, look for a RTF Quadrocopter.
For the advanced amateur pilots, more wants more. The actual flying and the control no longer pose a challenge and the focus will be on optimum aerial photographs. For this segment interesting dronegadgets exist, like FPV goggles through which you can see ,what the drone sees, live. Experienced pilots buy drones in the price range of 200-1000$ for drone models like Parrot (Bebop, AR.Drone 2.0 with Skycontroller) and DJI Phantom 2 Vision + and DJI Phantom 3.
In the professional area Thermographic recordings are made with drones, maintenance on bridges and tall buildings are checked and electricity pylons are examined with aerial photographs and made with the GPS-controlled quadricopter mapping shots.In this segment prices and features of the drone have almost no limits.
Besides the actual Quadrocopter (also called Quadcopter) many gadgets and add-on products can be bought, to make the flying experience easier and more fun. Everyone should make clear to themselves, how they are going to use the drone. An additional battery for the quadricopter is highly recommended, and actually, a total of 3-4 drones batteries should be available. These can be loaded at a loading station even via USB (mini-drone) and this will significantly increase the fun of flying. Often the extra batteries are offered from the beginning. Of course, a drone should be accompanied by (usually 2.4 GHz) a compatible remote control. Also, FPV video googles are also becoming increasingly popular.
What kind of drone do you want to buy?
At the beginner level, you can can actually get cheap entry-drones for 30-70 Dollars. The cheapest mini-drones will cost you around 30 Dollars, better drone, as a gift will, will set you back around 50 Dollars and a solid Beginner Mini will cost you around 70 Dollars.
However, you will quickly want to upgrade to a better drone.
