- Advertisement -

Are you enthusiastic about photography and video and are you keen on buying a drone to fly in search of the best aerial images?

We bet that yes! But before, it’s important that you figure out which model is best for you, especially if you’re a first-time pilot or are looking for the best value for money.

1 – Types of drones

When we talk about drones, we usually think of expensive equipment with state-of-the-art cameras. While true, there are several options on the market, such as toy drones and even professional drones with fairly competitive prices. But before you choose, know what each type entails:

Toy Drones

The drone’s toys are simpler models and easy to control, as they are light equipment and a flying height limit to 30 meters, i.e. safe to fly in and out of the house. Although this type of drone is suitable for children, it turns out to be a good option for those who are starting to make their first flights and are afraid to invest in a higher value model.

Drones professionals

The professional drones, usually bigger, heavier and more expensive than drones’ toys are made to fly to heights that allow photos or videos impressive air, as they offer a picture quality between HD and 4K.

2 – Image quality

Some drones do not have a built-in camera, so check to see whether or not to invest in a model that requires the purchase of a separate camera. In addition, the recording quality is another factor that can vary greatly depending on the price and version of the drone chosen.

There are more professional profile equipment, which have cameras with 4K resolution, HDR support and RAW format for photography. However, you can find simpler alternatives with HD resolution cameras. While not achieving the excellent quality of 4K, these options can also be a good alternative to record good quality videos to record beautiful images.

3 – Autonomy

Autonomy is fundamental! However, be aware that even the most expensive drones on the market rarely charge more than 25-30 minutes of use. Already the simplest drones, like the toy, are even more economical and is suitable only for capturing images much shorter, like 10 to 15 minutes. Alternatively, check the drone’s charging time and choose to have an extra battery!

4 – Portability

If your drone will be an inseparable partner in the trips and trips, opt for a model that allows you portability! There are extremely compact and foldable drones, which can be easily stored in specific bags and easily carried inside a backpack or suitcase.

5 – Accessories


If you want to give an upgrade in your drone, prepare yourself: the list of accessories is vast! From bags to shipping boxes, extra batteries, control commands and spare parts, there are a variety of accessories you can find to better protect and care for your drone. Remember that accidents happen either during a flight or at the landing, and it is more important to prevent than to remedy. Right?

6 – Flight modes and pilot features

Drones geared towards the less experienced usually have flight modes and predefined maneuvers, which facilitates control at the time of taking off, landing, and even avoiding obstacles in narrow spaces.

More accessible models can also rely on other features, such as automatically following the pilot or returning to the point of origin of the flight from GPS coordinates. These features are important for anyone who has never controlled a drone, since some of them can make it easier to adapt and learn and give more security to use the drone.

7 – Software

Looking forward to putting your drone to flight? Not without informing you about the instructions for use! The more advanced models have an application for installation on mobile devices that can help you navigate the drone. Thus, you can also store the images you record during your flights on a memory card or in a “cloud”.

Also, depending on the model, the signals sent by your drone can be live video, and from the outset, you should be able to see what the drone camera is filming on your smartphone connected to the command. The display should contain information relevant to the flight such as altitude, battery level and a map of the drone’s position in case of GPS.
