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.
Use of Propeller Protector Guards - I highly recommend operators make use of propeller guards on their Drone. They are available from most manufacturers or from 3rd party vendors. Most simply snap in place like the guards for the Yuneec Typhoon G while others like the propeller guards for the SYMA series require very small Phillips head screws and screwdriver for attachment. Not only will the guards prevent the Drones propellers from harming guests and crew but they also aid in avoiding the Drone becoming tangled in sailboat standing and running rigging fishing boat outriggers radar arches radio antennas and domes navigation lights and safety rails! Propeller guards are a MUST HAVE accessory!
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.
