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.
The next drone to check out is the Holy Stone F181 usually just known as the F181. This drone with a built-in camera has a number of controls that make it easy to control even if this is your first time flying a drone. Even if you wreck it it should keep flying. The controls that this drone comes with are very easy for beginners to use. You can fly the drone in four different modes - from 25% to 100% - to fit every level. Headless mode also helps beginners keep their drone under control. F181 is very durable; it can stand up to a number of bumps and crashes. This is ideal for the beginner and intermediate drone pilot who are still learning to do tricks and fly. The kit also comes with extra propellers.

The MJX Bugs 3 has an amazing brushless motor. This prevents excess friction within the parts helping the motor last longer. Since you may be mounting an expensive camera on this drone the reliability from the brushless motor is very important. On negative of this particular drone is that there is no included camera. Rather than a camera this drone sports a camera holder. This is good and bad. You can choose what camera quality you want and attach it to the drone such as Gopro but that will be at your own additional expense. If youre looking for a drone that can fly far and for a long time this is the right choice. Many beginner drones cannot fly for more than 8 minutes. This drone nearly doubles both flight time and range from other sub-200 models.
