There are hundreds of cheap, unbranded drones out there for under £50 but many aren’t of the highest quality. The Sky Drone, however, is simple, well-made and comes with a 720p HD camera that produces a clear video of your journey – everything you need to have fun trying out your flying capabilities. It comes with its own controller (AA batteries required) and can fly up to a range of 40m, which is far enough in most circumstances. You get about seven minutes’ flight time and the drone can charge completely in just 30 minutes. This drone feels more stable than many others at this price level, making it great for beginners. It also has the ability to perform flips and rolls once you get more advanced.
Intel’s Shooting Star drones are starting to change the game when it comes to spectacular light shows. For their latest outing, the diminutive aircraft were shown forming snowboarders and iconic rings for the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Most drones use a remote control with two joysticks — a bit like an Xbox or PlayStation controller. One stick controls what’s called the attitude of the quadcopter, including roll (tilting left and right) and pitch (tilting up and down). The other stick controls throttle and the rotation of the quadcopter. A good remote control should fit well in the hand, with sticks resting comfortably under your thumbs and providing a smooth, responsive feel that allows you to guide the quadcopter by touch.
Read on to see our choices for the top 5 best camera drones to buy in 2016, and if you’re looking for more drones for sale that don’t necessarily have cameras or auto follow drones, check out our other lists.
The DJI Phantom 3 is controlled with the Phantom 3 Remote Controller in conjunction with any iOS phone or tablet running iOS 8.0 or later, or any Android tablet or smartphone running v4.1.2 or later. Both devices use the DJI Pilot app which can be found on the Apple App Store and Google Play. A full list of compatible devices can be found on the official DJI site here. The DJI Pilot app allows users to customize flight options, and can even set the Phantom 3 to “Follow Me” mode. This mode will allow the drone to act as a personal flying film crew.
“It’s a vastly easier problem — flying than driving,” said Keller Rinaudo, the co-founder of Zipline, a drone-delivery start-up that will begin deploying a system to deliver medical goods in Rwanda this fall. “If we had regulatory permission, we’d be delivering to your house right now,” he added, referring to the San Francisco Bay Area.

The DJI Phantom 3 is the highly anticipated follow-up to DJI’s highly rated Phantom 2 drone, and the Phantom 3 is already receiving a great deal of praise from drone enthusiasts and businesses around the globe. It currently holds a 4.6 out of 5.0 star rating on Amazon, with many customers praising the video quality and its ease of use, which is why we are considering it one of the best drones for sale. The DJI Phantom 3 has 1080p Full HD video recording with fully stabilized 3-axis gimbal. DJI’s Lightbridge digital streaming allows users to view their stream in 720p while it is still recording in 1080p. The Phantom 3 has a Vision Positioning system that allows for stable flight indoors even when a GPS signal cannot be found, and with all of the options contained in the DJI Pilot app, this drone is incredibly easy to fly.

By former WIRED editor in chief Chris Anderson: “What we will do with our personal drones? That question is just as unanswerable—but just as tantalizing—as the same question about personal computers back in 1977. When the Apple II came out, the answer was not much more than “Program it!” But over time, as regular people found uses for PCs in their own lives, they came up with better answers: word processors, spreadsheets, videogames, email, and, eventually, the web. Today we know what personal computers are for, but it took the liberation of the technology to show us.”
No one has yet managed to combine the portability and top-end features that the Mavic possesses. Considering its light weight, it can hold itself steady remarkably well, though it feels slightly more “jumpy” in flight than the Phantom. The camera has a narrower field of view but for most purposes this makes little difference. The quality is still razor-sharp 4K. The battery also lasts around 25 minutes and it has the longest range of all of the models we tested at 7km.
They range from simple 6-axis RC flight controllers to sophisticated tablet-based controllers that integrate flight status, map overlay, waypoint control and live streaming video into a single display.
Drones costing a few hundred pounds or more have features such as a gimbal, which holds the camera steady, giving stunning, professional-looking aerial video. Spend £20,000 and you’ll be shooting “Planet Earth III” in no time.

Coming in 2 different versions (everything is the same except for the camera; you can choose between 4K and 2.7K one), Upair One seems like an excellent choice for people who want a reliable drone with an excellent camera quality.
This simplistic hexacopter might not provide you with second-to-none performance as seen with DJI’s drones, but considering it doesn’t cost nearly as one of those, it’s completely justified. Still, don’t think Typhoon H is a toy; not by a long shot! This baby features the ST16 controller with a 7-inch Android touchscreen) along with a CGO3+ camera. It is capable of recording 4K footage and delivers it in a silk smooth fashion. Moreover, it features 360 anti-vibration gimbal system which, in combination with retractable landing gear, allows you to rotate the CGO3+ camera any way you want without any issues at all.
It’s a great entry in the 250-class quad-racing category, and because of its robust aluminum supports on the carbon-fiber frame and the fact that it’s so lightweight (under 3 pounds), it’s a highly durable racing drone that can take some crashes with no problem at all.
Yet thanks to the school’s investments, the two had enough money to hire a real hardware architect who could help them build working prototypes. They moved from a closet-sized office in Berkeley to a garage space with technical equipment and 3D printers in Atherton, close to Silicon Valley. And one of their first tasks was to use their new funds to create a kickass promotional video that would help them raise money through presales.
The Phantom 4, in particular, is proofing to be very popular with pilots wanting to do serious aerial photography. It has taken the mark by storm replacing the DJI Phantom 3 as the most wanted consumer quadcopter for videography and photography. You can read my DJI Phantom 4 review here or you can check the top 100 FAQs about Phantom 4.

Most reviews think the GoPro Karma is a pretty good drone, too. Pocket-Lint gave it a 4/5, while Trusted Reviews and TechRadar stuck with a slightly more conservative, but still very respectable 3.5/5.
I saw my first quadcopter about four years ago while walking down Fifth Avenue. It resembled one of those trays which fit over your lap when you have breakfast in bed, only with propellers. A young man was carrying it, and I felt a brief urge to follow him. A year or two after that, I found a small drone in a tree in a park near my house in New Jersey. It was made of white plastic, circular, about six inches across, and it had no camera—a beginner’s drone. I examined it in wonder, as if I were Stone Age Its four propellers appeared undamaged. It did not seem to have crashed into the tree. Instead, someone probably placed it there at eye level so that whoever had lost it might find it. I regarded it as a good omen and put it back.
Learning to fly the X-Star is easy: you can start the motors, take off and land, hover, or have the drone automatically return home by using the one-touch buttons on the remote controller. The controller’s integrated LCD displays critical flight information, allowing the Starlink mobile app to show fullscreen live HD video.
DJI models currently dominate our top picks, and there’s a good reason for that. The company is simply a few steps ahead of its competition right now, and has a product catalog with models at various price points, which take up a good number of the slots in our top ten. It made huge improvements with its Phantom 3 series, and has continued to refine form and function with the Phantom 4, and produces the best small drone on the market in the form of the Mavic Pro and Mavic Pro Platinum.
At key moments in American history, pilots have been among the coolest people. For about twenty years, Mississippi steamboat pilots carried a cachet, with their expertise about how to navigate the ever-changing river. The ranks of river pilots produced our greatest writer. During the Cold War, fighter-jet pilots who became astronauts defined a high level of cool. Nicholas Horbaczewski has described the top-level drone racers as “the best flavor of nerd.” Maybe drone pilots will represent those historically cool types morphed into the future. Already, because of budget cuts, government-trained military pilots with experience of actual in-air flying are fewer, and commercial airlines have a smaller pool of pilots to draw on. Maybe someday we’ll all be flying in commercial airplanes directed by calm, professional, reassuring pilots who are sitting on the ground.
Featuring on-board HD cameras, our assortment of drones lets you take impressive photos and videos from high elevations.

So i give 4 out of 5 stars only due to the fact that i had to replace the props after the first test flight, but i consider this a very good purchase especially if you get the one up battery to get the full power from the motors…
