Had you considered investing in a drone about couple of years ago, a lot of people might have labelled you as crazy. But nowadays, during the last year more than, that’s what the buzz is all about. They are increasing in popularity plus much more plus much more commercial applications are suffering from for them. The two main competition is Parrot which have now released the 2.0 form of their AR Drone for amateurs, and DJI Phantom which charging over $1,000 is for the more serious players in the drone arena.
The AR Drone is priced at about $300 and up determined by regardless of whether you opt to go with any other features for example GPS based auto-pilot, an extra battery or extra memory available as a USB plug-in stick. It is then less costly and it wouldn’t surprise me if it becomes one of the top Christmas gifts this year!
So which drone do I need to buy?
Say you’re beginner; you watched several drone videos and therefore are all excited about having the ability to fly it around your city and take pictures from perspectives and angles you may not access before.
Probably the most important features nowadays could be the capability to film high definition video; if you need to display your drone video art to friends, then an is important. Fortunately that HD camcorders are getting to be cheaper and cheaper nowadays and the two Parrot AR Drone and the DJI Phantom have them.
Global Positioning System
As mentioned before GPS is optional for that AR Drone and can be had by buying a ‘flight recorder’ for about $140 off Amazon. However, the DJI Phantom is sold with GPS capability and a ‘return home’ feature built in.
Remote Control Capability
In addition to the price among these two drones, the way they are controlled will be the next largest difference. Parrot, with help from French scientists have created quite an intuitive app for android and ios, called Parrot Freeflight. The AR Parrot 2.0 drone basically provides a WiFi hotspot which connects to your smartphone or tablet which allows it to stream HD video directly to your device.
It’s also possible to control the drone by tilting your phone forward, backwards, right of left, just as you’d probably in a racing or flying game on the iPhone. The Freeflight app also allows you to directly share the videos to Facebook, YouTube or Vimeo directly from inside the app.
