In my previous page, you’ll notice that I tackled the low-end drones. Here we are going to set aside prices issues and work with the more expensive type drones, what they can do, where to get them, and why they are much preferred over the low-end type drone.
Thousands of folks still want to know what a remote control drone is and which one should they purchase, either as a first time purchase, or a replacement quadcopter.
DJI Spreading Wings S1000 Premium
At just under $4000. you probably do not want this to be your first quadcopter. Though rather easy to fly, it should only be for the very experienced drone operators.
If you are a professional type helicopter pilot, then you may be able to get a good handle on this very quickly, otherwise, I would suggest to pass it by for a future purchase.
Stability is one of the best features of the DJI. Transporting it to open areas is a simple taste as it compacts into a handy transporting package.
If you are sure of your skills as a pilot, and require fantastic videos, then then is the quadcopter that you’ll want to purchase. (otherwise, wait for the Lily to be released…see link in paragraph # 1 )
The Original DJI T600 Inspire 1 Professional RTF
For the everyday average consumer, the DJI T600 is definitely one of those high-end priced models. Prices usually run from about $2000. to $5000. and can possibly take a chunk out of your wallet.
On the other hand, if price is not an issue, then this video and picture capturing quadcopter will be an excellent investment.
Having a 360 degree viewing, you can buzz this guy into all sorts of “secret places” and come out with great images and videos.
Do not worry about blurred or shaky images, the3-axis gimbal keeps everything rock steady.
Don’t forget about the SDHC/SDXC memory cards included and the ability for a live feed to any mobile device that is running the DJI Lightbridge app or some type of monitor or perhaps FPV glasses with the HDMI input capacity.
DJI Phantom 2 Vision + V3.0
The Phantom at around $1000. or so, has become a mainstay for serious quadcopter operators.
The HD video camera and its 3-axis gimbal, once more, keeps images rock steady, but at a lower price than the previous copter.
A full 25 minutes of flying time and self tightening props will give you a great sense of security that you’ll not find with most other models of quadcopters.
From the redesigning of the propellers, you’ll see the difference in flying abilities as soon as you take to the air. However, I would suggest as usual, to always have and extra charged battery to take with you.
So, which one is for you?
Remember though, there is a 500 foot height restriction according to the new rules of the FAA.
Enjoy your quadcopter and be sure and leave your flying experiences in the spaces below.
