In addition, Spark has safety features that you normally only see on bigger drones. Things like Return to Home, Precision hovering and landing, not to mention obstacle avoidance, which until now was unheard of in a quadcopter this small.

I’ve been flying and building drones since 2003 and while the market is becoming full of drone competitors, in my opinion the Mavic Pro is the best value for 2017. It’s size, capability and portability are unmatched for future pilots hobbyist and pros alike.

The Elfie drone features a headless mode, a G-Sensor mode, a one key take-off function as well as a one key return function.

This is a sleek and powerful option for affordable drones: many customers are calling it their favorite for the price. This one actually has quite a bit of speed, and is a blast to fly around at the drop of a hat.

Smartphone photography has undergone some incredible transformations over the past decade. With high-resolution front-facing phone cameras and selfie sticks, the days of needing to mount a DSLR onto a tripod with the timer on is well and truly over. The selfie game continues to evolve as aerial imaging has become increasingly accessible. In fact, the most recent selfie craze is the ‘selfie drone’ – selfies on a whole new level.

Die plan met die uitleg was om al die ESC in die middel in ‘n ry lanksmekaar te plaas sodat almal se krag aansluiting na agter wys, waar die krag verspreidingsbord geplaas sal word. Die vlugbeheerder word dan in die middel geplaas en ‘n klein spasie word voor gelos, vir ‘n klein kamera in die toekoms. Die boonste gedeelte van die brug sal ek later ontwerp wanneer al die elektroniese komponente ook finaal geplaas is.

Familiarize yourself with the remote control – play around with it, push the switches and practice coordination between the two hands. You should also know how to take off and land the quadcopter gently. Acquaint yourself with indicator lights and what each one of them means.

The biggest pro that this selfie drone has to offer is definitely the fact that it’s a very quiet one. A lot of smaller drones tend to be quite loud, but this one has next to no obtrusive sounds, it’s great for flying in the peaceful outdoors.

In our time with Dobby, Zerotech tried to show us everything it could do. This includes voice enabled control (call it’s name, it’ll take off). You can also set Dobby to take off from, and land onto your palm. It’s not exactly the throw launched promised (but as yet undelivered) by Lily, but moving your hand upwards will see the drone take flight. Be careful of your fingers though, as Dobby nipped a pinkie from our demonstrator at one point.

But who is this “Left” that you’re talking about? All of the good ideas that you’ve mentioned have been adopted, in varying degrees, by nearly all Western governments. Do you think that maybe the good Left has been co-opted by the state?

The professional f/2.8 lens of the camera has a 94º field of view. Besides the powerful 4K camera and the remotely controlled 3-Axis gimbal, Phantom 3 features an awesome set of features such as GPS-Assisted Hover, Vision Positioning System, Automatic Flight logs, Follow Me, Altitude Set Height, Return to Home, Auto-pilot and First Person View.

For video selfies, there are not many better drones than AirDog ADII. Thanks to impressive speeds and sophisticated Follow Me modes (with plenty of advanced options which are not present with any other drone models on the market), ADII can be your sophisticated aerial selfie platform. To capture the best selfie, you will have to tamper around with a ton of settings. There’s no one-method-fits-all scenario when it comes to this drone so I am afraid you will have to keep adjusting the settings until you find the perfect one!

One of the most important aspects of building a drone is the flight control system it operates on. While many drone makers are outsourcing this part, we have developed our own proprietary solution in conjunction with the Vision Recognition module – meaning that we can continue on improving and developing the core functions of PITTA.

This is an example of a ready to fly drone that you can purchase in the lower priced category that is a great one to use with a tablet or smartphone. Absolutely one of the best beginner drones out there that still has many of the latest features that you see on higher-end models.

The default flight when your hands are off the controller is at a very stable hover. There is also a ‘Pause’ button on the remote that halts everything and puts the drone into a hover.

A bonus of the Hubsan X4 is its Advanced Flying Mode. Still, you won’t have to worry about advanced flying in those early days. But it’s useful to have once you’ve perfected your flying skills in Basic Mode.
