Drones, also known as birds, are the small unmanned flying vehicle that is often controlled on the ground using remote operator. Drones are essential as they help you survey your surrounding from a high aerial view. So if you have decided to acquire one, you will realize that there are a variety of options from which to choose. It is, however, important to consider your own needs and abilities when it comes to flying these fantastic vehicles. As such, the following highlights the types, features, and prices of different drones, which will help you make a solid decision.

Types of drone

There are no much details to consider when it comes to drones selection. However, they can be broadly categorized into three: the large camera bearings, smaller camera bearing, and the camera free drones. While some customers would like to purchase drones mounted with powerful cameras to enable them to capture high-quality footage from the sky, other customers prefer to have small drones with simple cameras.

However, small cameras won't give you high-quality capture. Therefore they are mostly used by beginners.

Features

It is also essential to choose a drone that matches your skill level and has some specific features you need. The quality of drone, however, is much determined by the price. In simple terms, more expensive drones will often come with a lot of features that may suit your piloting needs. On the contrary, less costly drones come with basic features. It is therefore essential for you to a made decision based on the amount you’ll want to spend for a drone. The following are some of the features you should consider.

• Battery life. Drones are often powered by batteries. Therefore, the more you fly it, the more it gets its battery drained. Therefore, if you prefer flying the drone for a considerably longer time, you will have to buy a drone that has a larger battery capacity. Or, you can decide to have a spare battery which comes at an extra cost.

• Brush-less motors. Drones can either have brushed motors or brush-less motors. When you need a quieter drone, you will have to settle for the brush-less ones. However, these drones are not only expensive but also durable.

• Camera. If at all you want to have quality footage capture, you will have to consider camera specifications. Look for drones with high camera resolutions. Majority of drones comes with an inbuilt camera. However, you might as well install your camera if your drone lack one.

• Integrated GPS. Some drones come with an inbuilt GPS. This helps them to determine the location in which they are flying. This upgrade, however, comes with a price. Besides, improved stability, this feature helps the drone to navigate their way back to the initial point (home). GPS feature also enables the drone to use the follow me mode, which instructs the drone to track you on the ground.

• Obstacle avoidance. Majority of premium drones uses this feature to prevent them from crushing on obstacles such as trees, buildings. This, therefore, ensures their safety hence longer lifetime.

• Flight range. The range with which your drone can fly is also an essential factor to consider. Professional level drones often fly longer ranges than simple ones.

Lastly, if you want to acquire one, the following includes some of the top picks: Blade Nano QX, hubsab X4, and DJI Mavic Pro.
