Experience the Best in Drone Photography

Imagine soaring sky high, getting a birds-eye view capturing nature’s moments. Hi-tech drones with HD crystal-clear vision display professional aerial shots which allow you to do just that.

1) Holy Stone GPS FPV RC Drone HS100

Overview

As kids, we dreamed of being pilots. Sadly life took a different path, but hey we got the next best thing: A Holy Stone drone. This hi-tech gadget served us a panoramic mid-air view of nature’s scenery so that we can feel like we were actually in the cockpit.

What We Like

The Holy Stone is a perfect for beginners and a cash-saver. The drone comes almost completely assembled and calibrated so it’s ready to fly right out of the box. No setup time needed. The holy stone is calibrated, assembled, and ready to fly right out of the box.

For advanced users, this drone is packed with endless features. The GPS-assisted flight navigation helps prevent flying aimlessly like a mindless drone. The Return to Home function ensures that you’ll never have to worry about losing your drone into the abyss. Holy Stone notifies when you have low battery energy or a weak signal not within range.

Next, the Follow Me is a hands-free control mode perfect for family shoots during Christmas parties. You’ll never be the one “out of the shoot” because you’re the one taking the picture. Now everyone gets to be in ALL the photos. And newbies can easily take off/land with one button. Don’t just take our word for it, a quick search on YouTube will reveal countless incredible shots taken by this super drone.

What Needs Improving

The camera is an HD 720P FOV first-person-view Wi-Fi camera which connects to your smartphone. But herein comes the drawback: because the camera is Wi-Fi dependent, you’ll have a slightly limited flying range. However, the range is actually plenty big enough, and everything is backed up onto the SD card.

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Hands-down the best part of this cam drone is the accurate GPS. I haven’t come across any drone at a similar price point that offers technology as good. Fly it on a nice, smooth day and you’re guaranteed to capture inspiring footage.

2) DJI Mavic Mini

Overview

There are reasons why DJI video drones are trending right now. Every time they bring out a new model it comes with sleek, top-range technology that gives you spectacular footage. A DJI in the drone world is like an iPhone to smartphones, so if you’re unfamiliar with different brands, this is a solid choice.

What We Like

First off, the Mavic Mini isn’t style over substance. This time it’s worth getting on the bandwagon. Why? This drone has a sophisticated 12 MP, 2.7K Quad HD video camera to give you a cinematic experience and flying it is a breeze. It comes already assembled saving you time and hassle. It offers a beginner mode, allowing you to get used to the drone flying mechanics. And when you’re ready to really get going, the new powerful motors make the drone stable and agile at the same time.

It flew it over the ocean on a windy day and it ducked, swerved and soared effortlessly. The camera is excellent, images are crystal clear and thanks to the standard lens, there’s no distortion. We even had someone ask whether one of our aerial photos was from the National Geographic. The ultrasonic sensors continually measure the distance between the drone and the ground so that you don’t need to.

What Needs Improving

Let’s talk battery life. The Mavic Mini maxes out at around 1 hour minutes. The batteries are replaceable, which is good news.

9.6Expert Score
The Final Verdict

It's true that there are more sophisticated (and expensive) drones available for pro use, but for aerial photography goes, this drone performs extraordinarily well. It's a solid buy.

Overview

When it comes to quadcopters that are easy to operate, you can’t get much better than this mini drone from Potensic. Perfect for beginners and leisurely flyers, this drone comes with all the trimmings to get you started in your new hobby.

What We Like

For a really budget-friendly price, you get a solidly built drone that will hold altitude, adjust speed, take off and land using one key,headless mode for easy flight and an out of range – alarm. Apart from the drone itself, you get a full starter kit: A transmitter, USB charging cable, manual and 4 x small blades.

What Needs Improving

They say you get what you pay for … and for this price you get a great drone. However, it won’t come with all the bells and whistles of an expensive model, but you won’t need the extras unless you’re a pro.

9.7Expert Score

4) Potensic T25 GPS Drone

Overview

Here’s another great drone that will save you money if you’re tight on cash. The Potensic also features an auto-return function. This is a huge plus because it helps you avoid smashing your drone into a million pieces.

What We Like

The actual drone arrives assembled and partially charged. The controls feel solid, and the screen is big enough to follow your drone’s movements. We were really impressed with the maneuverability of this machine, allowing minute adjustments in position, this is well worth considering.

What Needs Improving

Calibrating the GPS and the compass is a bit of a lengthy process at first, but once you set it up – it’s perfectly smooth.

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This offers a great drone experience. For a comfortably low price, the battery life is excellent, the controllability is second to none and the auto-return is awesome

5) DROCON Blue Bugs 3

DROCON Bugs 3 Powerful Brushless Motor Quadcopter High Speed Flying Gopro Drone for Adults and Hobbyilists, Blue

Overview

This is our top pick for beginners. The Drocon is built with newbie drone flyers in mind, while still catering on all the key features that make a great drone.

What We Like

First off, when you receive the drone it’s almost ready to fly. Only a little bit of assembling is required in the form of attaching the blade protectors, but it takes only a few minutes of your time. The first flight is a pure delight. The controller is one of the easiest we tried, and we soon got the hang of it. As we practice our take off and landing (with a few flicks and fast turns to boot), we’re impressed at how stable this drone remains throughout.

In terms of specs, there’s everything you’d expect from an honest, basic drone. Plus the upgraded brushless motors mean that this drone is significantly more powerful than its previous models. The drone comes with an HD camera and real time tracking, headless mode and one-key return.

What Needs Improving

We found the instructions a little hard to follow, but with a logical approach, we managed it

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Great drone for first-timers, and anyone who's looking for an easy and reliable gadget. There's no drama, no fuss - just a good product. This is a keeper.
