One reason that many beginners and intermediates use drones is to capture impressive photos or videos. When choosing between drones with camera features you should check out the camera specs. The first thing to note is that not all drones have built-in cameras. Some only have the space for a camera and you must add one yourself. This can be an added expense in terms of both time and money. ost beginners will want to go with a drone that has a built-in camera. Most built-in cameras have limited photo and video quality. Always check the specs of the camera on the drones you are looking at. You will want to check the megapixel rating of the camera and also what video settings it can record in. The best drones will have a gimbal to stabilize any images or video taken while the drone is flying.
Ability to handle windy conditions - This is a significant issue that operators need to keep in mind when purchasing a Drone. Many of the small and older Drones like an older Parrot AR Drone or a newer SYMA X5SW Drone lack many features and do not have the capability to stabilize flight when faced with more then 5-10 knots of wind. Additionally these Drones do not have stabilized gimbled camera mounts to smooth out the wobble and gyrations in windy conditions. Larger Drones and Drones with better electronic systems and gimbled camera mounts aboard have better high wind video capabilities. E: Retrievable - many small Drones do not have "home" capability and are difficult to land in any condition. Most new Drones have a highly developed "home" capability and are able to land back to their starting location automatically.
If you plan on renting a drone make sure you follow all the precautionary measures mentioned in the agreement. You should never fly a drone near radio or microwave towers because their frequency will interfere with that of the drone and cause problems.
