The U842 has LED night lights on the nose. This helps you to enjoy flying at night and still be able to orient which direction you are flying in. Plus the lights look cool! One big drawback of the U842 drone is how long it takes the batteries to charge. Most drone batteries take between 70 and 100 minutes but this battery takes 150 minutes to charge. Still backup batteries are available and you get around 9 minutes of flight time for each battery. The best beginner drone is without a doubt the UDI U842 by DBPOWER. The controls on this drone are easy to understand and will help you learn how to work a drone. Using this model is fun and practical for users of all experience levels.
Battery life matters also when making the decision of purchasing a drone. The battery life is going to determine the amount of time the drone can remain in the air. In addition to battery life you will have to take into account the charging time required by the drone to recharge its batteries. Ideally you should go for a drone that is capable of giving you at least 20 minutes of flight time and can be fully charged within half an hour. The controllable range is the farthest distance up to which you can remotely pilot your drone. Most drones have very limited controllable ranges meaning that you cannot take them out for long range flights. The advanced drones however have considerable controllable range and can be flown for long distances. Controllable range is an important consideration when buying drones for aerial photography as you would have to remain within this range when taking photos.
FPV Camera: Dont forget to buy a model that comes equipped with a FPV camera and this is clearly mentioned in the specifications when you check out various models of drones. The position of the camera is also important in drone racing because you want to see what lies ahead when your drone is tilted forward. Flight Controller: Just keep in mind that without a good flight controller you are never going to win a drone racing contest. Why? Because such a controller comes with firmware that makes a drone flight smooth and stable. Many novice pilots can easily overlook this feature but this is one tip youre going to receive from every drone racer who has had a good experience in the field.
