In terms of specifications, you can expect roughly 15 to 20 minutes of active flying and approximately 800 meters of operating range. Unfortunately, it does not come with a camera but possesses a GoPro mount (you can even buy a 3-axis GoPro gimbal separately) which will surely satisfy your aerial photography needs. So, with all that being said, at such a low price point, I consider 3DR Solo a proper steal!

The H107D version offers a real-time feed that the H107C camera did not have. A 4.3-inch color LCD screen is a section of the controller unit, where you can view what exactly the camera sees in live transmitted signals.

As mentioned earlier, the Drone is controlled using your smartphone over a WiFi connection. Its flight time is about 10 minutes or less, which is typical of small drones and needs about 45 minutes to fully charge.

Despite what the ads tell you, drones crash all the time. A good drone will take an unplanned descent and ground interface (aka: a crash) in stride, without damaging the frame. It will also include shields to protect the rotors and electronics from harm.

Still not convinced?  PhoneDrone is compatible with many low cost smartphones – some low as $50.  So pick up an extra smartphone and you’ll still be flying the lowest cost cloud-connected autonomous drone on the planet.

So, if you are looking for the benefits that collision avoidance systems bring to drones, then you should pick one among those 3 contestants. If you want raw performance, Mavic is the right way to go. If you want portability, DJI Spark is your pick. Lastly, if you want unparalleled and fast-paced autonomous performance, AirDog ADII is all for you.

Range is limited to 165 feet from the controller device. A built-in camera relays photos and 720p 30fps videos to the smartphone so that they can be stored, played back, and shared instantly from the device. There is also a second camera on the base of the copter that makes landing on certain spots easy. Users also have the option of connecting a small USB stick to record directly.

According to Eriksson, drones have so many important use cases — such as inspecting towers, power lines, rooftops, high-rise buildings, railways, pipelines, water tanks, and reservoirs — that it would be unfortunate to simply ban them without investigating mobile connectivity and control.

Runner-up for the best drone with a camera is DJI’s amazing Phantom 4 Pro. It’s their 2nd drone with obstacle avoidance. This is a huge news for everyone who wants the ultimate autonomous experience. Besides obstacle avoidance, Phantom 4 Pro has all sorts of advanced features. DJI is known for the implementation of everything that’s available on the market, and the situation is not different with Phantom 4 Pro. But, besides that, what exactly is so special about DJI Phantom 4 Pro and what makes it worth so much money? Oh boy, oh boy… where should I start?

As stated above, GeniusIdea is a highly innovative drone. First of all, we should put the focus on the building material. We are talking about a highly durable (and bendable) rubber-like material that can take quite a beating. It was not only used for making the drone’s body but for its propellers as well.

Selfie Features – Indoor Flight, 1080P close-proximity video downlink, WiFi hands-free mode for selfies, ‘Active Track’ and ‘Spotlight’ feature keeps you in the frame at all times, ‘Gesture Control’ to instruct the quad to take a dronie using your hand movements. “Tripod” mode for indoor stills.

Another thing is how they fly and the way they are controlled. This type of drones allows you to control it using an app you install on your smartphone or tablet, this is meant to make these drones easier to fly and control even by newbie pilots who want to focus on getting a selfie rather than worry about thrust and yaw control.

Creativity is at the heart of every dream. At DJI, we give creators the tools they need to bring their imagination to life. Our products push visionaries to go beyond the limits of possibility, inspiring them to see the world from a brand new perspective.
