By GB Blog Official 2016-11-02 1469 2
For anyone interested in being a drone pilot, the first challenge is deciding which drone to fly. Our friendly guide will point you in the right direction.
1. Choose a drone that matches your skill level
We recommend selecting one based on how well you can manage flying it.
For example, if you want to buy one copter for your child as gift, you will need to find one that is affordable, sturdy and comes with safety functions (such as attached with propeller guard).
Tip: If you have no previous RC flight experience, focus on copters that are specially designed for beginners.
2. Select the right version of aircraft
When you are looking for a drone, there are many options for you to choose from. Examples include:
Tip: For beginners, a quadcopter is generally more easy to control because it has more lifting power than either a helicopter or tricopter!
3. Select a device that suits your preferred length of flying time
Flight time can vary a lot between models. While some can fly for several minutes, larger ones can even fly for one hour (3 factors that affect drone flight time).
Tip: Choosing your favorite flying time is also a significant factor which will influence your decision.
4. Known where you want to fly
If you live in a high-density urban area where space is at a premium, smaller drones are more appropriate – bigger drones are more suitable for open areas.
Tip: Get a clear idea of where to fly and choose the drone size accordingly.
5. Work out a budget for your drone
The price of a drone can vary immensely – there is literally one for every budget, all the way up to enthusiast.
Be sure to read the product specifications and reviews first, because this information will clearly tell you how the drone performs for other users.
Tip: Balance the quality with affordability when working out the budget.
6. Join a club or online forum for beginners
Talk with some experienced drone enthusiasts, so you can exchange experiences together to learn quickly and understand the main issues.
Tip: Learning with others is easier than learning by yourself – experience is a good teacher.
It is important to remember that drone disaster can strike at any moment. If you have no previous remote control copter experience, why not start small?
It is always a good idea to get a cheap mini copter with RTF version to start with.
We highly recommend small copters as your first choice, such as:
● JJRC H31
● FQ777 FQ11
These three kinds of quadcopters are specially tailored for novices just starting out. They meet all the above criteria and are also great value for money!
