The battery life on this drone is better than many others at this price point though it still isnt the number one option. You can fly the drone for 10 plus minutes without issue. With an extra battery or two youll be able to fly to your hearts content. One big negative on this model is the camera quality. At only 0.5MPs the quality of any video and photos captured will not be very good. Still the camera can be used for FPV viewing via the app on a phone which is a nice touch. The Kidcia quadcopter has foldable arms making it the most portable drone at this price point. Use it to explore the world and learn how to fly anywhere you go. The best drones under 200 can offer the beginner and intermediate drone pilot a unique experience. These drones are easier to fly than cheaper or more expensive drones because of their simplified but sturdy features. Additionally they have enough durability to let you learn how to fly even if you crash a few times.
Safe Use of a Drone aboard - A Drone is a robot that uses high powered motors to turn propellers - propellers that are capable of significant harm in the event that the Drone makes contact with the operator or guests aboard. Operators must be aware of who is near the Drone both taking off and landing. Additionally operators must avoid hitting radar arches outriggers flags fly bridges and other yacht and ship structures. Operators must be sure to plan how they will use the Drone - from the bow from the stern from an open bridge or bridge top. Safe Storage of A Drone Aboard - I highly recommend that a padded soft or hard case be used to transport and store a Drone aboard a yacht boat or ship. Bringing a Drone aboard a yacht boat or ship without storage protection is asking for damage to happen.
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.
