UDI U818A- Best Value Bundle Deal. UDI makes a fantastic drone known as the U818A. While the controls on this drone are worth mentioning the best thing is all the add-ons. This model comes as a great value bundle making it one of the best drones under 100. The bundle comes with all the power you need: two batteries an external power bank and a two battery charger. Plus you get four extra drone blades a 4GB SD card and an SD card reader. All of these add-ons are necessary for the new drone pilot. This model has great maneuverability thanks to the 6-axis gyro feature. The gyro provides extra stability and wind resistance while also making the drone easier to control. Headless mode also helps to make directing the drone very simple.
Keep in mind that while launching the Drone is relatively quick and easy landing and retrieving the Drone can be very challenging and consume all of the remaining battery capacity. Drone Batteries - most if not all batteries used for Drones and their controllers are LIPO batteries and are subject to generating a great deal of heat and require very specific charging and storage techniques. LIPO batteries should be transported in special foil packages and definitely not in the Drone. Special chargers are required to charge LIPO batteries. Additionally it may take up to 2 hours to recharge depleted batteries so the Drone operator should be sure primary and spare batteries are charged when the operator and Drone arrive aboard. The Operator should allow enough time to recharge the batteries after use. Operators should consider purchasing a multi-battery charger.
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.
