You might ask yourself – but why should I buy an $800 drone as my first one? Well, despite its awfully high price, you will get a top-quality tech gadget that is actually ridiculously easy to control. Why is that so? Well, when compared to some of the cheaper drones (some of which have been actually featured in this list), the Q500 showed off incredible responsiveness and superior flying assistance, making it by far the most beginner-friendly drone on the market.

You’ll want to be careful in using it, though: This particular model doesn’t come with a propeller guard, and while it’s built well enough to avoid bursting apart at every collision, it’s probably going to lose something the more you use it. But again, it’s for beginners, and sticking with its safe mode is generally stable.

Yes, this little birdie comes with an FPV system straight out of the box. It is not a high-quality one, just a 480p camera that. Luckily though, it works via the 5.8GHz connection which is, as you probably all know, far superior to WiFi.

GPS is always a big plus to any drone out there. If not for its ability to give your drone more stable movements in midair then surely because of all those supporting features that are implemented alongside it. However, for beginners,  paying extra for a GPS-ready drone doesn’t really make sense since they’ll mostly be learning the basics which will (in most cases) result in a whole heap of crashes. That’s why I’d warmly suggest you opt for a cheap drone without GPS as it will give you a better general feeling for how controlling a drone actually works.

These days, for a little over $300 you can get the 3DR Solo (regular price is cca $700) which is a great drone in all aspects. Truth be told, it lacks a camera which might be an issue for some of you. But still, it offers a good beginner drone solution with its dedicated gimbal that you can either buy separately or bundled together with the drone for a little over $600.

Button mapping is completely adjustable and there are several new updates to this modified FreeFlight app. Current version is 2.4.10 and sports plenty of fixes as well as lock toggle. Keep in mind that you will have to force install this .apk to your Android smartphone/tablet in order to get it work properly. Luckily, it’s an easy process, in a matter of minutes you’ll be flying your first android controlled drone!

“I don’t see a privacy problem with leveraging cell towers,” says Ryan Calo, a law professor at the University of Washington, where he teaches a class on robotic law and policy. “If a centralised place is keeping track of these things, we would have some accountability. I don’t believe anybody thinks we should have anonymous drones the way we should have anonymous web surfing.”

RC drones today come with so many intelligent features. Some of these are invaluable, whereas others can be a bit gimmicky. As a beginner drone pilot, there are six key features you should be aware of:

This is a great concept and the team may be qualified to execute; but given Lily’s experience we suggest consumers use caution. The product claims are not new (e.g. It’s simple to use!). The DOBBY from ZEROTECH closely parallels this device in terms of benefits and is on the market.

This model is infact another extremely popular drone model for those who just want to experiment with a selfie drone. It is extremely affordable, being less than $50 while still having all of the features one would need from a selfie quadcopter. [redirect url=’’ sec=’0′]
