Control and Extended Ranges

Today it is possible to use a drone (remote control plane) camera to capture images and videos that are different than what most people are used to from normal filming.

How to choose the best drone? There are many models on the market, and each product has its own features, as each product is new to the market it has strengths and weaknesses. These should be analyzed by anyone interested in buying a drone, that’s why in this article today we will be discussing some of the best drones available and their features, as well as some things you should have in mind, when deciding which drone is best for you.

Remote Control

Your first concern should be the range of remote control and the drone. Shooting a sport climber, for example, in a 30-meter route, the operator must know that the drone will be able to reach the distance that is required. If communication between the remote control and the drone is interrupted, or the drone goes out of reach, the fall is inevitable.

Built In Cameras & Interchangeable Cameras

Some drones have built in cameras in the device, which provide greater stability and image adjustment, others allow the use of several types of cameras (like the Go Pro). An important factor is also the ability to maneuver the unit.

Filming using drones often requires a precise technical approach, stability and, in some cases, proximity, being able to do this takes practice which can take time. It is estimated that the “learning curve” is quite large and a lot of practice is needed to have good command of the drone.

Things to Consider Before Buying a Drone

To choose the best drone, you need to consider what feature suits your needs the most. Therefore, there is always a device that fits your skill with the remote control and your camera needs. Another point to take into consideration is the availability of spare parts in case of accident.
