What are Drones?



Drones are multirotor, remote-control (RC) flying devices that offer a new way of looking at the world around you from never-before-imagined perspectives, and sharing those adventures through photos and video. Many RC drones offer live first-person viewing (FPV), putting you in the driver’s seat on an exhilarating joyride where you can explore and even race from a pilot’s point of view. If you’ve ever dreamed of competing in an air race or performing tricks and stunts with your fellow fliers in an air show, becoming a drone pilot might be the closest you’ll come to experiencing that thrill firsthand.

Which drone is right for me?

Drones range in price from less than $100 to several thousand dollars, and the best drone for you isn’t necessarily the most expensive one. The best drone for you depends on your experience level and how you plan to use it.

As the price goes up, drones become more powerful and capable of carrying extra hardware such as a stabilizing mount and action camera. But the real cost difference is in the brains of the drone — the flight controller and onboard processor — that make it more stable and maneuverable, and allow it to perform more functions in the air. For drones with built-in cameras, the cost will also increase with the quality of the camera.
