Drones have become one of the fastest growing mass market products with market share up from 3 to 20 percent in the past decade. Public awareness is growing of drones’ awesome uses in various sectors and different industries across the world and are making plans to buy a new drone to see for themselves how drones can change their life.
Generally it happens that when a newbie heads out to buy a drone, they don’t know exactly what to look out for in a drone and what makes a good fit in terms of skill level and intended us of the drone. That’s why we have come up with some essential tips to keep in mind to help you make the right choice when buying a drone.
Without any further ado, let’s take a look at some tips for drone buying:
- Drone Price
Price is one of the major factors to consider when going out to buy a drone. Know your budget before you start, and stick to your budget – don’t be swayed after taking a look at all of the drones with different features on the market.
Make sure that you buy your drone when it’s on sale or discount. Especially in the upcoming holiday season there are lots of sales that will allow you to save some big bucks, and with the savings you can buy another small Nano drone for your kids to make them happy too.
- Drone Camera
Onboard camera is an important feature to take in consideration when buying a new drone, especially if you are a photography enthusiast and are buying the drone with the purpose of capturing some breath-taking photos while performing jaw dropping stunts from different angles on the sprawling beaches of Spain.
Generally you will find that most drones come with a good camera attached to them for taking good quality photos and videos, but in some drones the camera is not attached to them. In this case the pilot has the liberty to attach a camera of their choice like the gopro drone action camera or something similar to take their photography skills to the next level.
- Drone Features
While buying a drone you need to make sure that your drone comes with all the desired features you want it to have. Consider things like good Wi-Fi and GPS range, FPV view, orbital, waypoint, auto follow, landing at start point features, etc.
Make sure to know all about the drone you have in mind before buying from a retailer or online store like amazon. You can refer to YouTube videos and various drone review sites and drone blogs to learn about your favourite drone in-depth before making your final decision to buy it.
- Flight time
Flight time is one aspect of a drone which could either put smile on your face and make you satisfied, or just make you feel bad about your drone choice, so we suggest looking for a drone with an extended flight time to make the most of your flying experience.
As of now the best flight time recorded in consumer drones is about 30 minutes, so chose something as close to that as possible in your drone, but if your drone doesn’t come with high flight time and you don’t have a budget to buy a more advanced drone with higher flight time then I would suggest to at least buy couple of extra batteries with your drone to keep the fun going for a longer time.
My hope is that this post will help you make a good decision while on the hunt to buy the best drone for your needs, to make yourself happy and also to keep your pocket healthy. Share with your family and friends as well, to help them buy an awesome drone this holiday season.
