In recent years, drones have gone from being used solely by the military to being household items. Some people use drones to take aerial shots of things that interest them, while others use them for entertainment.
Whatever your reason for wanting to buy a drone, we have you covered with our list of the best drones available for everyday use, which we listed below.
5. T-Series T111 FPV
If you are new to drones, or just looking for a reasonably priced drone, this T-Series drone is the perfect drone to buy. Despite retailing for less than $100, this drone has some features that are found in higher priced drones. It comes with a remote that has a built-in screen, providing you with a first person view of the area the drone is flying over.
The picture quality on the screen is in High-Definition, which means you get great quality shots. The drone also has an auto-hover function that makes it easy for beginners to control, and it can perform some really cool stunts. The only downside to this drone is the battery life, which lasts just 7 minutes.
4. Hubsan x4
This is another reasonably priced drone designed for beginners. Like the T-Series drone above, this pocket sized drone comes with a built in screen in the remote that allows you to see what the drone is flying over. However, the picture quality is low resolution.
Due to its weight, flying this drone in windy conditions is not recommended. The drone also doesn’t come with a GPS that allows it to hover automatically.
3. DJI Phantom 4
This is one of the most popular drones available because it is a well-made product designed for professionals but can be used by beginners as well. While it is more expensive than the previous drones, this durable drone is worth every penny.
The Phantom 4 is a very responsive drone with a built-in camera that can hold its position even in windy conditions. You can connect your smartphone or tablet to the remote to get a first-person view of the aerial footage from the camera, and it can also track moving objects. The Parrot has a respectable battery life of 25 minutes, and a range of 5km.
2. Parrot Bebop 2
Another one of the most popular drones on the market today that can be used by beginners or veterans. It comes with a 14 megapixel camera that records in 1080p, giving you high definition pictures. The Bebop 2 also comes with a headset that allows you to view the footage from the drone as it flies high above you.
The battery lasts up to 20 minutes and it has a range of 300m.
DJI Mavic Pro
Like the name suggests, this is a drone designed for people with a lot of experience flying drones, which doesn’t mean it can’t be used by people with intermediate skills. The drone comes with all the features of the Phantom 4, but also has a few new features of its own.
One of the best features of the Mavic Pro is the fact that it comes with a 4K camera and has a battery that lasts up to 25 minutes as well as a 7km range, which h was the best of all the drones we tested.
