What Sort Of Drone Do You want?

Drone or Quadcopters have become increasingly popular recently.

As they become cheaper the average person can afford to buy them for personal use. For the simple selfie or a tracking drone to follow you on a run, bike ride or just having fun. Drones have a massive list of uses with new applications appearing every day. 

Photography Drones

Photographers and videographers are particularly interested in using drones to capture a different perspective on their subjects.

My brother races motorbikes and he uses a drone to video his riding on the track so he can identify mistakes to work on improving his times by eliminating these. People are racing drones and covering sporting events.

There are so many choices out the when you decide what sort of drone do you want. But it pays to do your homework and consult with someone who has experience.

Personal Selfie Drones

We all know selfies are a big thing these days. Just have to look at social media with platforms like Snapchat, Instagram and of course Facebook.

With Selfie Drones you get a whole new perspective on your personal photos. You can include action with video, take aerial shots and pan out to your surroundings.

You will open up a new world of selfies when you start using a selfie drone. The new mini selfie drones fold up so they can fit in your bag or backpack so you have them whenever you need them. Never miss that chance to capture the moment.

A warning. Cheap drones have a short flying time and take a long time to recharge. So be prepared to spend extra money to buy a high-quality drone or, if your budget is limited, buy extra batteries. Make sure you charge all your batteries before you go out.

Racing Drones

Yes, we have a new sport now. Racing drones have become more popular, but, as you can imagine, it is not for the beginner. I would suggest you start playing with drones first and let it take you where you want to go.

Racing Drones can be very expensive both to buy and to maintain. As you can imagine there are plenty of costly accidents, especially when you are learning.
