3 things to consider when buying a drone

If you want a drone for photography, check the camera specifications. The larger the sensor, the better the image quality. A large sensor lets in more light, which is an advantage if it's cloudy or you're using it in the evening.

For the best results, choose a camera with at least 12 megapixels. And if you plan on editing your images, make sure the drone supports raw format. For videos, we recommend a camera that films in 4K. The frame rate is also important here – choose at least 60 fps to create stunning slow-motion effects.

For an immersive experience, go for a drone with a headset and glasses to see everything from a first-person perspective. And if you're planning on using it for hunting, a thermal camera will be the way to go.

Here are 3 key features to look for:

  • Active tracking lets the drone follow you as you move, which is perfect for activities like running or cycling.

  • Smart return home allows the drone to find its way back to where it started, even if it encounters issues like low battery or loss of signal.

  • A water-resistant drone won't get damaged if it rains during the flight.

Some drones require you to assemble them yourself. Drones marked RTF (ready to fly) are fully assembled, while those marked BNF or ARF may require assembly.

It's also important to check the drone's battery life. Basic models can only offer a flying time of 10 minutes, while others can last up to half an hour. If you're a beginner, look for a drone with at least 15 minutes of flying time, as shorter flights can be frustrating when you're trying to practice.

In addition, check the drone's connection range, which is the distance it can be from you and still respond to your commands. Depending on the model, this range can be up to 6 miles (10 km).
