It’s always a good idea to get a cheap, robust “ready to fly” mini quad to start with. It’s also a good choice for presents and gifts for someone who wants to get into this hobby. They are usually under $50, so it’s easier to deal with if you crash, than having a $500 quad. Also they are a lot smaller and lighter, it causes a lot less damage to people or objects.
The Spark is a great starter drone if you have the budget for it. Its advantage over the DJI Phantom series is the size, it fits in the palm of your hand. This makes it extremely portable. The price you pay is less flight time and not quite as good a camera as on the later Phantoms.

If your drone has GPS, chances are high it will also have some (if not all) of the following features: waypoints, follow me, altitude hold, orbit, cable cam etc. These supporting features are sometimes referred to as GPS features since they all require the GPS model in order to work as planned.
The camera can capture 720P video at 30 frames per second (with an SD card). This is one of the most popular training quadcopters on the market, and I like this particular package because it comes with an extra battery.
In 2014, with funding from the venture firm Andreessen Horowitz, the company began working on what would become the R1. Skydio has since raised $70 million from Andreessen and several other investors, including Institutional Venture Partners, Playground Global and the basketball player Kevin Durant.
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. These different functions allow you to control Elfie according to your preferences, move him around using the virtual joysticks on-screen or even by simply tilting your phone in the direction you wish to send him.
We cannot start this list without mentioning our favourite selfie-drone of all – the drones whose arms fold into to fit right in your pocket. If you want to see what this technology can do without spending a lot, this would be the perfect buy. Foldable & flexible aerofoils make the palm-sized drone compact, small and portable.
Back to the big boys now. The AirDog is a foldable drone that is meant to take selfie videos of action sports. This is quite apparent when you consider that it has five dedicated flight modes each customized for a certain action sport, like surfing, bicycle riding, windsurfing, etc.
“You have to maybe certify … provided you have a certain certification and you have a drone with these capabilities, then you’re allowed to fly it, so you can put all of these rules into the database,” he explained.
DJI Spark has already brought a ton of innovative things in the field of selfie drones. With a 2-axis gimbal providing hardware stabilization and an exceptional full HD camera, it is able to capture selfies like no other drone out there. With that being said, just imagine what a stir on the market will we have once DJI Spark 2 gets released.
If you own a larger smartphone, you’ll find it is larger than this drone, it’s that small. I mean, the fuselage is small, there’s still propeller arms and the folding propellers to deal with, but hey, it’s still one of the more portable flying machines around.
This heavily depends on the type of work you do and how prepared you are as a pilot/photographer. It can range between enough money to barely make a living to living life on easy mode… It all comes down to a whole heap of variables, many of which under your command. If you’d like to start off with your career but have no idea where to begin, I’d warmly recommend Googling FAA Pilot License and start off with that. After you’ve obtained your license, here’s some useful insights that could help you find a gig.
One of the most exciting trends in drone circles is the rise of FPV, or first-person view, flying. Just like it sounds, this has you strap on a headset and see through the eye of a camera attached to the drone itself. It’s like using a virtual reality helmet, except not virtual.
When you are flying forward fast, and you are about to crash intro a tree, what would you do? If you can escape by turning left or right, a wise option would be turning off your throttle. By stopping throttle, you also stop the fast rotating propellers as well. This reduces the chance of breaking your props, motors and further damages to your quadcopter. Some nano quads come with prop guards which are also good features to consider.
HEADLESS MODE: Usually, the forward direction of a flying multi-rotor is the same as the nose direction, by using Headless, the forward direction has nothing to do with nose direction, the direction will be the same as your remote controller
Uninspired by one-armed selfies or the selfie stick? We were too. With AirSelfie you can get more of the people and things you love into your photos. A third camera for your device that lets you get those wide-angle photos, indoors and out, from a totally boundless perspective: the sky.
