Recommended Beginner & Student Drones.
If you're purchasing a drone for outdoor use, the key thing to look for is wind resistance, resolution and smartphone app. We've heard horror stories from customers with drones where their drones (which didn't have GPS nor a stable app) flew away on the first flight and never came back. With the DJI Mini series, you will get a reliable drone, application and excellent image quality. Their value for money proposition is unbeatable. If you're looking for a fantastic indoor drone with STEM Coding abilities, the Tello is the best choice.
These drones are perfect for content creators, drone enthusiasts & professional pilots. Not only are they fast & efficient, they have excellent image quality which is an important considerations for content creators and professional photographers / videographers. We suggest looking for a drone with a larger sensor such as 1" 20 MP CMOS sensor as it will provide higher resolution, dynamic range (perfect for low light) and a wider range of frames per second (fps). For more exhilarating videos and to make your audience experience the thrills of flight, the DJI FPV Drone is the choice with blistering speeds and the ability for creative air manoeuvres.
Drones range from entry-level with minial features to high-end ones with all the bells and whistles. Consider what features you require and think about future proofing your set-up.
An entry-level drone is perfect for recreation and social media. For professional work and content creation, we recommended looking at a drone with a larger sensor & higher resolution.
We want to avoid buyers remorse. A drone that is feature rich not only will make drone flying more fun, but generally see's greater use than a drone with less smart features.
Let's Answer Your Questions.
They are easy to fly with their intuitive controls and app interface. With all the drones (expect Tello) having a compass, GPS, IMU and downward sensors, the drone is able to maintain it's position in the air. If you are in normal mode and you let go of the sticks, the drone will stop and hover until your next command!
