The first drone wed like to introduce is the Force 1 U45W Blue Jay. This drone has a lot of great features for a beginner model such as high-quality FPV capabilities. The main draw of this drone is the great FPV settings. The first-person-view syncs with either your smartphone or a VR headset and you can watch the world from the drone cockpit after syncing. This FPV is easy to ease and its intuitive for smartphone users. Blue Jay has a built-in HD camera. It can capture 720p photos and videos with a 2MP camera. Its even possible to do 360° views with this camera which is great for VR users. Photos can be saved directly to your synced phone; videos save to the memory card.
The design of a drone is an important consideration. You would have to decide whether a quadcopter design would be suitable or whether you require a drone having more than four rotors. While a quadcopter is best for balancing and finer control it would not be safe to use in rough weather and wont be able to lift heavier payloads. On the other hand a hexacopter or an octocopter consumes more power but can fly in much more severe weather. Speed and elevation are also factors that you need to keep in mind when it comes to buying drones. Most small drones cant fly as high are larger drones. So if you want to take good quality aerial photographs then you will have to get an advanced drone that is capable of reaching heights of 300 feet or more. Moreover a smaller drone wont be able to go as fast and would be unsuitable for drone racing. For that you would require a speedy drone for racing which can clock in high speeds.
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. It is also not recommended to fly a drone in rainy weather. Although people fly drones indoors it is advisable to use these aerial vehicles outdoors only. Drone propellers are extremely dangerous and can cause severe injury or damage. While drone rentals are easy to acquire nowadays there is another option for you if think you cannot afford the new models of the latest drones available on the market. The choice is to buy a used drone in good condition by contacting a company that offers these machines at affordable prices. When renting a drone you have to specify the pickup date and the return date and then find machines available at a given time for rental. You can easily check availability of various models online simply by browsing through a drone rental site.
