You have probably heard of drones because of all the media attention lately but did you know you can actually buy one yourself? Okay maybe not the military grade kind but you can get a much cheaper one for under $100 to more expensive ones around $1000. Quadcopters are just rc helicopters that have 4 propellers which allows them to be much more mobile in the air. Some of the more expensive models can even attach a gopro camera to them which captures amazing aerial footage that everyone will love.
Buying the Best Quadcopter
If you have been looking to buy the best quadcopter you first should start off with one of the cheaper models just so you can get used to the feel of flying one before you get an expensive one. Many people jump straight into the most expensive model only to wreck it and waste all their money. Here I will outline the best model for beginner, intermediate, and professional fliers.
Syma X1 4
This model is great for beginners because it is fairly cheap under $100 and can be flown both indoors and outdoors. You would be surprised at the amazing maneuverability of the Syma X4 and how well you can control this copter. If you’re looking for your first quadcopter then this is definitely the best choice. It can fly up to 40 meters away which is much further than most models in this price range. The best part of it all is it only takes 40 minutes to charge and be ready to fly again!
Once you have a little more skill level you can move up to a model like the Sky Vipir. This quadcopter is great because unlike most in the price range that just fly up and down and side to side, this copter can perform tricks such as flips and barrel rolls. The remote control also has three different modes from beginner to advanced which will allow a new flyer an easier time transitioning into this quadcopter. Don’t forget the removable carbon fiber and foam frame that allows you more safety just in case you do happen to wreck.
Of course this model is the professional choice because it really has no competition. This bad boy is extremely easy to fly and also does so very smoothly. You can attach a GoPro camera underneath the frame which will allow you to take incredible aerial photography unlike any other model. This copter can also hover in place with ease even in 15 mph winds which is just insane compared to other drones. If you are looking for the best then look no further.
