Skydio was founded by Mr. Bry and Abe Bachrach — who met as graduate students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and later started Google’s drone program, Project Wing — along with Matt Donahoe, an interface designer.

The newly announced GDU O2 is one of the only drones announced at InterDrone 2017 that you might want in the hands of a beginner. The drone itself is, for all intents, unremarkable once in the air – I don’t mean that in a bad way, not at all, just that its flight modes pail in comparison to how well it travels. Instead of folding down, this drone slides into itself and then the drone snaps to the remote. The package protects all the important bits, making it one of the most portable machines around. 

I hope you enjoyed reading the seven affordable starter drone reviews above. Now it’s time to include a couple of great beginner choices for under $500. Both models are equally priced and equally capable.

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.

The Spark, a brand-new miniature by DJI has just been officially unveiled. Now, even though you still cannot buy it (UPDATE : you can order it now), it still deserves a special spot on this list just because it’s so damn awesome. It’s practically the size of a phablet and it fits into virtually all backpacks, handbags and even smallest purses. Is size the only thing the Spark excels at? Not by a long shot…

Not all transmitters are the same. As a matter of fact, each and every one of them is different in their own right. They might seem similar but their switches and buttons do completely different things. That’s why it’s a good idea to learn the basic buttons such as return to home, headless mode, rate switch and so on. WIthout that knowledge, you will have a bad time flying your drone for the first time.

Love it…Not bad….Great addition for getting in the extra flying time needed for certain projects or hovering for that perfect shot and don’t have time for to wait for another battery to charge….I know that DJI is a new Proust to best buy but I think you would do much better in sales of this product with employees that know the product.I might even be interested in working for best buy training employees.I do have a lot of knowledge with drones.

This is the most popular video/image resolution these days. Full HD is the nickname and it has been around for quite some time now. Even though 4K keeps knocking on the door, trying to reach the mainstream scene, it is still an enthusiast-only treat as the majority of people don’t yet have a 4K TV/monitor in order to experience true 4K footage.

This is still a cheap drone, so it doesn’t support any camera- or GPS-related features, and its battery lasts a paltry 8 minutes per charge. (In general, we recommend buying a few cheap backup batteries for simpler drones like this, just so you aren’t charging constantly.) And while it’s robust enough to use outside, its minuscule frame means that strong bursts of wind can still send it off-course. It also means you need to keep an eye on it as best you can.

You can also use the drones follow me mode, and let it follow you when your run, bike, surf etc. Having a drone that can follow you enables you to shoot some really cool action videos. Drones that follow you are usually quite expensive, but this quad is actually affordable.

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.

As you can see from the image above, Altair AA108 has a miniature camera built into the tip of its nose. This is a well familiar design and there is nothing to add to it. As far as the camera itself is concerned, you are looking at a wide-angle lens (120-degrees to be more precise). Its maximum video resolution is 720p and it supports FPV too. Not a lot of distance on it though, around 20 meters. It’s enough for selfies… and you can’t really expect more from such a budget-friendly drone.

An exclusive training quadcopter from USA Toyz / Force1 RC, the U45 Blue Jay is one of the more durable beginner quadcopters out there. As you can see by those propeller guards, they can take quite a beating.

Now the technical stuff. The specs of the Hover Camera Passport drone are similar to those of the Dobby Selfie Drone; they both have a 13 MP camera that shoots 4K videos. However, the camera in the Passport Drone is meant for selfies and close up photos more than that of the Dobby, this is because of quite limited control range of 60 feet. Another similarity is that both are based on the Snapdragon chipset giving them great processing power to handle all the advanced features they both have.

La empresa china DJI es la líder indiscutible del mercado de drones de consumo. En cada lanzamiento nos sorprenden con modelos con prestaciones increibles. El DJI Spark es el último lanzamiento y no ha defraudado.

Finally they are mostly autonomous and fly on their own in several predetermined patterns. Meaning you can set the drone to follow you from behind, or focus on your face from the front or even do a flyby around; all of this is done even if you are moving around. The idea is that you simply tell the drone to follow you and you start your adventure. Pretty cool!

The Drone 720X is a brand-new drone that has a high 720-Pixel Resolution Camera that shoots at 30 FPS. Drones are becoming more and more popular, and they are also typically very expensive. The Drone 720X is a drone that is designed to be high-quality and very affordable for the average person.

I’m sure many of you, even though you’re most likely beginners, are already well familiar with DJI Mavic Pro. It’s been heavily advertised in all forms of social media so I really doubt you’ve managed to miss it.

But even with all those annoyances, hooking yourself in and seeing the world from the sky above is a thrill that no mediocre camera tech can fully drag down. All the nice things we said about the standard Nano QX above still apply here, so the quad is still approachable and surprisingly nimble at the same time. Its video feed rarely stutters or lags. And if the included goggles bother you too much, you can always grab a higher-res pair to replace them. Practice without the headset first, but for an instantly ready leap into FPV flying, this is a good get.

The Blade Nano is a beginner drone (for under $100) that will carry you into the veteran landscape. (Blade was also featured in our list of drone companies to watch, among a few of the other manufacturers in this article.)

Como en los últimos años el Syma X5C ha seguido siendo el drone más vendido de Amazon. Su gran calidad precio, su estabilidad y resistencia han hecho que  los usuarios hayan seguido apostando por este drone. El Syma X5C va equipado con una cámara HD de 2 mp que graba vídeos y realiza fotografías de una calidad bastante buena si tenemos en cuenta que el Syma X5C lo puedes comprar sobre los 40 euros. Uno de los factores que hacen del Syma X5C el drone más vendido es la gran cantidad de repuestos y piezas disponibles, así como el bajo precio a los que los puedes encontrar. Durante el 2016 la empresa china Syma nos sorprendió con el lanzamiento de un nuevo modelo llamado a suceder al Syma X5C, el Syma X5UC. El Syma X5UC se nos presenta con un diseño totalmente renovado y con grandes novedades.

A lo mejor el AR Drone no ha tenido toda la fama que se merece, y en parte ha sido debido a su elevado precio. Este cuadricóptero fabricado por Parrot del que os hablamos en Omicrono es una auténtica bestia del control, con un vuelo que tiene un control tremendo, pero que cuesta 299€.

Altitude Hold, One Touch Takeoff and Landing, and even Headless Mode are many of the flight features you can expect from drone. No doubt, this one is action packed in all of the best ways an inexpensive drone could be.

Follow Me mode takes advantage of the drone’s GPS module and allows it to follow you (or virtually any other object or person) everywhere you go. There are also several variants or subtypes of this feature. They include Dynamic Follow, Static Follow, ActiveTrack, Orbit, Panoramic Follow and plenty more… of course, depending on the model you have/will buy.

I’m sure you all know that there are several versions of Parrot Bebop 2 currently available on the market. WIth the announcement of the newest Power version, we had a difficult time of choosing which particular one should be featured on this list. At the end of the day, we decided that Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer promises the most functionalities to beginners which is exactly the topic of today’s article. So, let’s see what’s this adventurous little drone all about!

is JJRC’s drone for those pilots who prioritise camera quality. One of the first low-cost drones (if not the very first) to include a 3MP camera in its package. The camera has 120º field of view, ensuring you get the most of what you are recording or photographing. The camera is set on a 2-Axis gimbal Gimbal capable of tilting upward, downward, right or left with just a push of a button on your RC controller. This allows pilots to acquire different recording angles for their videos and photos. Besides this, JJRC H26D features Headless Mode and One-Key return. Flight time is an average 6 to 7 minutes powered by its 7.4V 1.200mAh 30C LiPo battery. Control range, as expected from JJRC, is an amazing 300 meters! H26D is an amazing toy drone packing a 3MP camera!
