With the growth in technology, taking pictures and recording videos have taken a whole new twist. Through drones, users can now record videos and take pictures at elevated levels without any sort of struggle. In fact, with a drone, it is very effective and convenient to record your favorite events for example racing.

However, not all drones are up to the task. When out to purchase one of these products, it is important to consider some factors before signing up for anything. For beginners in the field, this article will provide you with all the details that you need to know about purchasing a drone.

What are the factors to consider?

From my personal experience in the field of purchasing and using drones, I have figured out some factors that require your attention when out to purchase any of these amazing products. They include:

Consider the Ease of Flying

Like any other product that flies, flying a drone is not a walk in the park. However, different manufacturers have come with ways through which they have simplified the modes of flying their drones. In that case, it is safe to say that each drone is different and flies depending on the manufacturer’s set up.

If you are a beginner, you can opt for drones such as Phantom 3, Inspire 1 and 3DR SOLO drones that have a reputation of being easier to fly. On the other hand, if you have been in the field for a considerable amount of time, you can opt for drones such as Syma X5C or Husban X4 that are harder to fly. Easier to fly drones have a disadvantage of being expensive as compared to their counterparts that are considered harder to fly.

Decide on whether you want a ready to fly drone

For the beginners, it is important to note that when you are out to purchase a drone, you will come across some acronyms commonly used in the field. These acronyms represent the different types of drones available. Here are the most common ones:

RTF Drones

This stands for Ready to Fly Drones. When you purchase this drone, you do not need any kind of assembly or special setup in order to fly it. However, it is important to note that you may need to do some simple things such as charging up the battery, bind the controllers or install the propellers by yourself. These types of drones are considered ones for beginners.

BNF drones

This acronym stands for Bind and Fly types of drones. For these types of drones, they come fully assembled but without a controller. In that case, you need to use a controller that you already have (provided it is compatible with the drone) or purchase one for the drone.

However, it is important to note that unlike the old times, just because the transmitter and the receiver appear to be on the same frequency does not mean that they will automatically work together. It is therefore important to consider the protocols set by the manufacturer.

ARF Drones


These types of drones have the Almost Ready to fly feature. With these, you may need to do some partial assembly before flying them. In addition to that, these drones do not have a receiver or a transmitter for that matter. The details covering these types of drones are very wide therefore, you need to study them carefully before purchasing one. In most cases, people who have experience in using drones go for these types.

Invest Wisely

Many people buy drones for the purposes of commercial use. If you are one such person, you need to consider some factors before purchasing a drone. Here are some main aspects to consider:

The Drones Controllers

Invest wisely in a good controller. The ability of the drone to move around well depends hugely on the qualities of its controller. If you want to use your drone for commercial purposes, a good controller will help you deliver good services to your customers. Personally, I invested in a good controller that has been able to serve me for the last ten years and still going strong.

Purchase a Good Charger

Chargers also play a huge role in terms of maintaining the workability of a drone. Some people argue that there are cheap chargers that come with RTF drones thereby you can rely on them and save yourself some cash.

However, the chargers that come with these drones do not last for very long soon after purchase. In addition to that, they are slow in their charging services and they have a fixed size for specific drones. Investing in a good charger and battery is therefore as wise as investing in good controllers. Generally, good accessories play a part in providing you with good drone services.

Do Proper Research

I understand that purchasing a drone especially for beginners can be an exciting ordeal. However, it is important to conduct your research first before purchasing a drone. Know the differences and the functions of each part. Know when you need to charge, repair or replace some parts of the drone.

Generally, research and be knowledgeable in every aspect concerning a drone. In the end, you will notice that the various researches conducted will aid you in saving money, time and provide you with a good easy time while using the drone.

Carefully consider where you buy your drone from

Many are the outlets that sell drones. However, you should be careful of the cons in the society. You can buy these products online or at a trusted store near you. It is also important to consider outlets that are selling their drones at a discounted price. This will allow you to save some money in the end.


Everybody wants to buy a drone but not everybody knows what it takes to acquire one successfully. In this article, we have taken the trouble of providing you with all the necessary details that you need when purchasing these precious products. Some of the main factors to consider include considering if the drones are ready to fly, consider the accessories that come with the drones and consider making wise investments on the drone. Generally, whether you are a beginner or an expert in the game, purchasing a drone should not be as hard a task.
