Miliary drones aren’t talked about as much as the basic camera or beginner drone these days. And almost wherever you look you can find a Phantom recording some beautiful scenery. Even so, most people don’t know how to choose a drone and are not sure if they should invest a lot of money at first or just gradually.
In my experience, there’s no need to buy a thousand dollar drone when you can start with a cheaper under $100 quadcopter that won’t break the bank in case you crash it. This will enable you to learn the basics of flying and enjoy a first hand experience of how it it is to fly with a remote controller. The next step is to choose between the two main categories (after you got used to flying on the beginner one):
• Camera drone
• FPV drone (with Glasses)
Camera drones are the expensive ones that can cost over $1000 and they record in incredible quality and with a very stable image (thanks to a motorized gimbal).
FPV (first person view) drones are pretty much racing drones that go really fast and you can also attach a pair of FPV goggles to the system and see in real time what the drone sees. The experience is fascinating.
Even so, first one must start with the cheaper option and pick out a beginner drone. So check out the following infographic guide on how to buy a beginner quadcopter: But keep in mind, this information is also very relevant to all kinds of drones.
