Kidcia- Best Portable Drone. Another brand not yet mentioned Kidcia makes a beginner quadcopter with FPV live camera options that is foldable and thus very portable. This model is easy to bring along with you on any trip. The Kidcia has a nice lightweight design with foldable arms. You can make it very compact by folding in the propeller and then this is easy to bring along on any trip. You dont even need the main controller; the drone can be controlled from your phone on its own. Another cool feature youll only find with the Kidcia is the Gravity Sensor feature. This feature syncs the drone to move in the same way that your phone moves. Simply move your phone in the desired direction and the drone will follow along.
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.
Most people use drones for the purpose of taking photos. The drone itself doesnt take photos but it has a built-in camera mounted on it that is responsible for taking the images. The more advanced the camera is the more quality photos it should be able to take. However do remember that HD cameras can be very heavy so you will have to buy a heavier and more advanced drone if you intend to use it for the purpose of aerial photography or videography. Drones are aircraft and can easily be involved in accidents. All it takes is a wrong turn or a slight error of judgment to cause the drone to tumble to the ground. Most lightweight drones fall a lot and thus require replacement parts like rotor blades extra batteries propellers and gears to get back into the air. Thus availability of spare parts is another important consideration that you have to keep in mind when buying small drones.
