Drone Buying Guide

Finding a drone is not easy. There are so many options to choose from so which one should you go with? Well there are a lot of options for drones. I will go over them briefly however this drone buying guide does a great job at going over which drone to get for any drone level user. 
So let's start off:

What's the best drone for a beginner?

Honestly for a beginner the best drone would probably be the UDI 818 Quadcopter. It's cheap and it still has certain features that people will enjoy. It has a great value for it's price and its easy to learn how to fly. Which is important because the last thing you want as a beginner is to get a drone that is difficult to control.

Best Drone For Advanced User?

For an advanced user then I would go with the DJI Phantom 3. It pretty much as everything that anyone would want. You can take awesome pictures. High quality videos and you can change the settings of the camera at any given time. Now it doesn't come cheap that's forsure but I would say that the value it gives you is definitely worth the price.

Best drone for photography

I've noticed that a lot of photographers have become widely interested in drones because of the awesome pictures they're able to take. Unless you have a massive 2.7k to get the DJI Inspire 1 then i would go again with the DJI Phantom 3. The inspire is probably the best drone ever made for professionals but it does come at a huge price. That's why unless your a professional then I recommend the DJI Phantom.

Drone present for a child?

A lot of us have families and getting a drone for a child is perhaps one of the best gifts any child could want. Personally i would get them the Syma x5C. This drone is cheap and it even has a camera. I'm sure your kid will enjoy it.

Well there you have it hope you enjoyed this guide. Now there are certainly a lot more options to choose from so don't think you only have these to choose from.

Drone registration

You've probably heard a lot about the drone registration. Basically the FAA now requires everyone who buys a drone that is over .55 pounds to register it with them. They charge a 5$ fee however if you register it before a certain time then they will refund it.

So what happens if you don't register it? 

Well they certainly aren't playing around with the consequences. Apparently you can get up to 27,000$ in drone fines. Also you can end up spending up to 3 years in jail for failing to do this.

How can you register it?

You can just simply register your drone through there website. Simple go here: and just register it. It doesn't really take a lot of your time so i recommend to do it as soon as you get the chance. It can save you a lot of headaches in the future. 

What happens after registering?

The FAA gives you a registration number. You need to keep this registration number on you at all times. If you are ever questioned they will ask you about it. Preferably keep it as a sticker on your drone.

Finding the right drone for you


In today's world drones are incredibly advanced. No longer do we have the toy drones where you just plug in batteries into the remote and fly them around for like 5 minutes. Now they're everywhere. Movie directors use them, photographers use them and even professional sports such as soccer and the NFL use them as well. 

What's your budget for drone buying?

If your buying it for a child then you can easily find a simple one for around 20$
Now if your into the drone hobby and want to use it for your own entertainment then it would probably cost you around 100-150$. Now drones range in prices. If your a bit more into the hobby and don't mind spending a bit more then you can find a top quality one for around 600$. DJI is one of the top companies in the world of drones. However they're drones are a bit expensive but definitely one of the top quality. I would recommend you check them out.

What are you going to be using the drone for? 

Each drone has it's own purpose. If your looking into photography then DJI drones are certainly going to be the go to. If your simply just looking for entertainment then go with something like a UDI or a holy stone.

Are you a beginner or expert? How comfortable do you feel flying a drone?  

While still being something to keeping in mind all while not as relevant is to see how comfortable you are with drones. Important to mention that most drones are now a lot easier to fly. Even some of the most expensive ones are now just as easy to fly as the less costly ones due to the fact that companies want to make sure anyone can fly there drones. However you don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a drone if you don't end up liking the hobby.

Well hope this helps you on your journey to finding the perfect drone for you. Have any questions feel free to contact us!
