What are the best drones for the money?
If you have always wanted to buy a drone but wasn’t very clear about which one to start with, and which were the best drones for the money, then you’ve come to the right place. Here, we will talk you through the best drones for the money, and give you excellent options to choose from.
There are too many websites on the internet that don’t really pay attention to the quality of the drones being marketed by them. Here, we only focus on drones of the highest quality that are also great value for your money. Each of the drones in our list was picked for its features, quality, user friendliness and value. While this is by no means a comprehensive list of the best drones for the money, it’s what you need to get started in the world of flying quadcopters.
DJI PHANTOM 2 VISION+
The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ comes equipped with a built-in 14 MP camera that shoots at 1080p. It is a fantastic quadcopter, one of the best in the business, and can be controlled by your iPhone or Android phone. It has WiFi streaming as well, so you can access a continuous running visual from the cameras up in the sky even as you maneuver this awesome machine. The camera is capable of tilting at sharp angles for every shot. The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ costs just under $800, which is a great price for it.
HUBSAN X4 H107C
The Hubsan X4 HD is what you should go for if you’re looking for a high quality first drone to get started. It is an ideal quadcopter to buy for your kids and doesn’t cost much at all. It is, in fact, the only decent drone with camera that costs $50 or less – which is a ridiculously low price when you come to think about it. Of course, you won’t be flying the Hubsan X4 HD for long – it is something to get started with, practice drone flying, before you move on to bigger and more complex things. It comes with a Basic mode which is perfect for children and an Advance mode which is just right for adults flying their first drones.
PARROT AR.DRONE 2.0 POWER EDITION
Every flying drone enthusiast has flown a Parrot drone at some stage in his life. Parrot has been the pioneering company when it comes to quadcopters – they are the company that began it all. And to their credit, they haven’t rested on their laurels but move on to bigger and better things, more advanced and highly sophisticated drones that are clearly the best drones for the money. The Parrot AR Power Edition is perhaps the most popular drone in the market. It comes with swappable 1500mAh batteries and shoots images at a picture resolution of 720p. You can mount a GoPro or a HD camera on it if you like as well. It has WiFi streaming too and costs no more than $300. You can buy it safely with the knowledge that you can’t go wrong with a Parrot quadcopter.
3D ROBOTICS IRIS+
We are BIG fans of the Iris+ – it is perhaps the most stylish drone out there. You don’t have to work hard on maneuvering the Iris because it comes with the amazing Pixhawk autopilot system. So you can automate your takeoff as well as landing. You can automate the return to the home base, and have your own customized mission parameters. IRIS+ does not have a pre-built camera but you can fit a GoPro camera on it quite comfortably. It does not come cheap at $600, which makes it twice as costly as the Parrot Power Edition. Plus, you will have to spend extra for GoPro as well. But 3D ROBOTICS Iris+ is a highly sophisticated drone and very much worth the extra money you spend on it.
