Today the drones are in the mouth of everyone, and anyone would want to have one. But first to get you from the impulse to buy the most desired object of these times and venture into the beautiful world of drones, here are 3 things you should know that you won’t get in any drone review.
1. It is not easy to fly a drone
Everything that flies is difficult to control by its very nature. To fly quadrats, the most famous kind of best drones today, would be practically impossible without a flight controller, that is, the microcomputer that allows it, for example, to be “stable” in the air. Not all drones fly in the same way: Depending on the calibration of the controller, some will have a agiler and “snapping” flight, while others will point more to stability.
There is also to be considered the real difficulty of controlling the drone, which varies unusually depending on the cost of the drone. Usually, for example, for radio communication machines, helicopters, and aircraft, a higher price indicates the greater complexity of controls and consequently greater difficulty in use. For drones, however, this rule does not exist, and the relationship between control difficulty and price is inconsistent. Economic drones are difficult to control as they have a “crude” command system without features that facilitate the driver’s “driving.” Ease of use increases by passing to midrange drones, then regain a drop when it comes to high-end, professional-looking best drones, which only an experienced pilot manages with a certain degree of familiarity (and fortunately, since any falls could affect a few thousand dollars). As a result, if you are at the beginning, you should “bite yourself” with the drones, learning to pilot a toy drone that limits the damage to $150-$200.
2. Not all drones are ready to fly
True. In some cases, you will not be able to take the drone out of the box to turn it on and see it flickering at home or in the garden. There are abbreviations, very popular on sites that sell online drones, which indicate exactly the condition of the product compared to this possibility. Let’s see them together.
RTF stands for Ready To Fly and indicates that the drone in question will be almost ready to fly, save the battery, or do some other simple operation.
BNF means Bind And Fly. These drones usually have no controllers, so either you already have one, or buy it separately, paying attention to being compatible.
ARF is finally ready for Almost Ready to Fly and indicates that the drone requires being partially assembled before being used. Not only that, in some cases, the ARF drone can also be “incomplete,” that is to say, be the kits lacking one or more components. If you find this acronym next to the product you intend to buy, then read the description in detail to find out exactly what is and what is missing.
3. The Importance of Investments
If you desire to go around the house for less than $100s, then this part is not for you, but if you are a fan of images and hobbies for some time, then you need to know how to spend your money wisely. For example, you should immediately invest in the quality of some accessories:
The same argument is valid for the charger. It may seem absurd to spend a lot of money on a quality charger, yet it is the best thing to do. It will not only last for years, but it will be much more reliable and quicker than its economic colleagues, which are included in RTF kits and which sometimes can only charge the type of batteries included in the package. When you buy a larger drone, with a larger and more powerful battery, the quality charger will do its job without problems, since it can charge more or less every kind of battery, even more, batteries using adapters
We all know: buying the first drone is exciting, but if you do not want to throw your money you have to reason and evaluate the various market proposals. Take the time to tell you about the technical features of the different models, read reviews of who has already bought the product you are interested in, check the availability of offers available online. In this way, you will avoid purchasing poor quality products while saving a little money.
