Le guide d'achat ultime pour 2019

Note rapide: Ce guide fournit toutes les informations dont vous avez besoin pour trouver rapidement le meilleur drone pour vous, que vous soyez pilote débutant ou professionnel. Mais si vous achetez un drone pour la première fois, je vous suggère fortement de lire le guide en entier. Cela vous donnera un cours complet sur les UAV civils et vous indiquera comment prendre la meilleure décision d'achat possible.

Je pense que vous serez d'accord avec moi quand je dis:

L'achat d'un drone n'est pas la chose la plus facile au monde.

Ces machines sont complexes. Ils viennent avec de nombreuses spécifications, fonctionnalités et utilisations différentes. Et ils sont en vente dans toutes les gammes de prix disponibles.

Si vous avez passé 5 minutes à chercher sur le Web des critiques de drones et des guides d'achat, vous savez de quoi je parle.

C'est pourquoi j'ai décidé de rassembler ce guide. Quand j'ai d'abord voulu acheter un drone, j'ai lu critique après critique en essayant de décider lequel me convenait le mieux. À la fin, j'ai fini par dépenser trop pour une plate-forme qui était hors de mes compétences à ce moment-là. Inutile de dire que j'étais frustré.

Cependant, depuis lors, j'ai piloté plus de 60 modèles de drones, allant de micro-drones de 13 $ à 4 000 $ de drones professionnels. Par essais et erreurs, j'ai découvert quels drones étaient les meilleurs, dans toutes les gammes de prix.

Ce guide est un cours intensif sur ce que sont les drones, ce qui le rend unique, comment choisir celui qui convient le mieux à vos besoins et même comment en piloter un. J'ai passé plus de 40 heures à rassembler ces informations. Mon objectif était que ce guide soit le seul dont vous aurez besoin.

Je pense que c'est vraiment le guide ultime pour l'achat de drones avec appareils photo en 2019. Et je suis vraiment ravi de l'avoir enfin publié.

Avant de commencer, je voudrais dire un merci rapide pour la lecture de cet article. Je sais que vous avez beaucoup d'options en ce qui concerne les ressources de drones, donc j'apprécie vraiment que vous preniez le temps de vérifier My Drone Authority et ce qu'elle a à offrir. – Marque

Comment utiliser ce guide

Ce guide est essentiellement divisé en deux parties. La première partie fournit une mine de connaissances sur les UAV (véhicules aériens sans pilote), qui est très utile pour les personnes novices dans ce domaine / métier. La seconde plonge dans des modèles de drones spécifiques que je considère comme les meilleurs du marché à l’heure actuelle.

Si vous débutez dans les drones, les quadcoptères et / ou le pilotage en avion, je vous suggère de lire les deux parties dans leur intégralité. Vous élargirez vos connaissances à pas de géant et vous serez indéniablement prêt à prendre la bonne décision et à prendre un bon départ pour développer vos compétences en vol.

Si vous avez déjà de l'expérience et que vous avez une idée de ce que vous recherchez, utilisez les liens de navigation situés à la fin de cette section ou dans l'encadré. Ils vous feront sauter dans la fourchette de prix qui vous convient le mieux. Cela vous aidera à prendre une décision plus rapidement.

Cependant, quel que soit votre niveau de compétence, je suggère au moins de parcourir les informations de la première section, car certaines d'entre elles concernent tous les pilotes de drones.

Par exemple, connaître les principales fonctionnalités vous aidera à mieux comparer différents montages. Vous comprendrez si vous payez trop cher pour un appareil photo sur un drone ou non sur un autre.

Les lois relatives à ces deux aspects ont changé, je suggère donc vivement de lire l'article ci-dessus.

Ensuite, les drones eux-mêmes sont classés par gamme de prix

Les fourchettes de prix vous aideront à trouver rapidement le drone qui convient à votre budget. Ils vont de moins de 40 $ à plus de 3 000 $, il existe donc des plates-formes pour tous les budgets.

J'ai fait cela pour vous aider à trouver le (s) drone (s) que vous souhaitez acheter.

Bon, maintenant que vous savez tirer pleinement parti de tout ce que ce guide a à offrir, voyons la viande et les pommes de terre:

Un séjour sans faille

While I try to update this page as often as I can, the fact of the matter is drone prices fluctuate from time to time, as well as their availability. I try to check as often as I can to make sure each drone is available for sale, but, inevitably, some of you will be checking out a drone that isn’t available or the price has gone up substantially. I apologize in advance if this happens to you. If you notice a drone is unavailable or should be in a different price range, please leave a comment and let me know.

Best Drones With Cameras for Sale in 2019 (Reviews & Buying Guide)

We're taking a deep dive into each drone model, its specs, its features, who it is best for, and much, much more.

This is to give you all the information you need to make smart buying decisions, now and in the future as well.

The drones are separated by price range and type. If you know what you're looking for, this will help narrow your search faster. If you don't know what you're looking for, simply read about each drone. This will help you discover which drone will meet your needs best.

Before each price range is a table. This table showcases an overview of each drone and its most important specs. Use them to get a high level look at each model before diving deeper.

Let's dive in:

Over $1,000

Drones over $1,000 are typically professional-grade. They come with powerful cameras and advanced features like autonomous flight modes. Put simply, they're some of the top drones out there. Even though these models come with GPS, I'd strongly recommend protecting your investment with a drone tracker.

DJI Phantom 4 Professional

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro captures some of the highest quality 20-megapixel images available on a drone.

This drone that is heavily favored by professional pilots.

It comes with automatic, omnidirectional, collision-avoidance protection, 31 minutes of flying time, and it can reach speeds of up to 44 mph.

The Mavic 2 Pro has a three-axis gimbal-mounted camera that rotates freely and that can hold its position accurately for steady shots.

It has 8 MB of internal storage and SD memory card support of up to 128 GB of extra storage, and this package comes with a bundle of useful accessories.

Combined with its portability, the Mavic 2 Pro is one of the best drones on the market today.

Un séjour sans failleWho is it best for?

This drone is an excellent all-around quadcopter. I recommend it to both recreational and professional pilots.

  • High-quality images.
  • Obstacle sensing and collision avoidance.
  • Fast speed and long 31-minute flight time.
  • Easy to operate.
  • Great for traveling.
  • A larger investment than other drones

The DJI Phantom 4 Pro+ is one of the most state of the art drones available.

Its intelligent performance system and formidable imaging system make it essential for any serious photographer or videographer.

The sensor is 1-inch and 20-megapixels with the ability to take 4k/60fps video. The Phantom 4 Pro +’s autonomous flight system adds two rear vision sensors and infrared sensing systems, giving it the ability for five-direction obstacle sensing and four-direction obstacle avoidance.

Its notable features include Tap Fly that allows you to fly your drone with the tap of your finger and Visual Tracking of a moving subject. While it may be on the higher end of the pricing spectrum, it has the innovative features that help you fly with ease while taking top quality photos and videos.

Who is it best for?

I highly recommend the Pro+ to professional pilots. It gives you a ton of bang for your buck that will show you in the work you produce.

And it will show clients that you are serious about quality.

  • Autonomous flight mode
  • GPS
  • 30-minute flight time
  • Tap Fly
  • 20-megapixel sensor
  • Dual rear vision sensors
  • Infrared sensing systems
  • Durable and light frame
  • Easy to learn how to fly and take photographs at the same time
  • The ability to use third-party apps can be limited.

3. DJI Phantom 4 Professional

The DJI Phantom 4 Professional is one of the most technologically advanced aerial drones on the market. It sports a high quality camera that takes 20 megapixel still photos and shoots video in 4K resolution, and it comes with a ton of autonomous flight modes.

But one of my favorite aspects of this quadcopter is its five directions of obstacle sensing. You can fly the drone thousands of meters away from you, around buildings, over trees, and it will automatically return back to you while avoiding all of those same obstacles on its own. It's truly amazing.

I also love the Phantom 4 Pro's 30-minute flight time. Battery life is one of the biggest complaints among drone owners. With the P4 Pro, I was able to get all the shots I needed with ample time to land safely before the battery ran out. If I was on a particularly long shoot, I simply brought some spare batteries with me and never worried about not having enough air time.

My only concern is that the P4's size makes it difficult to transport (this is true for most drones of this size). I'd suggest buying a carrying case if you're planning to travel with your drone. Carrying cases these days will also hold all of your other parts/accessories as well.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this multirotor. It flies well, the GPS gives you some great autopilot capability, and it has one of the longest flight times of any drone available today.

Who is it best for?

Due to its price level, the Phantom 4 Professional is geared towards commercial UAV pilots who want a top of line rig to service their clients or their own businesses.

If you're a professional pilot, I'd place the P4 Pro in your top 3 to 5 choices when deciding which drone to buy.

  • Extremely good camera
  • Long flight time and control distance
  • Tons of autopilot flight capability
  • Obstacle avoidance is a huge help
  • Very stable flight
  • Great support community
  • Size can make it tough to transport without a carrying case

The Mavic Air is packed with a ton of great features for such a portable quadcopter.

This drone is foldable, making it easy to travel with. It can take 32MP Sphere Panoramas, immersive FPV (first person view), and two 1920×1080 HD screens.

The Mavic Air includes a head tracking feature that allows you to view the world from above. You also get a set of FPV goggles, which make getting quality shots much easier.

This drone is an excellent choice for close range videography.  With a 21-minute flight time, it's a wonderful overall machine.

Who is it best for?

The Mavic Air is an excellent choice for travelers, families, and anyone who want a high-end compact drone.

  • Googles, I love the goggles
  • GPS
  • Autonomous flight
  • Dual 1920×1080 HD screens
  • Head tracking feature
  • Immersive FPV
  • Portabilité
  • Some people may be frustrated by the fact that the goggles connect with a USB cable.

This is one of my all time favorite drones, the DJI Inspire 2. It's too expensive for me to buy personally, but I'm lucky enough to have a buddy who lets me fly his whenever I want to.

The Inspire 2 is jam packed with features that will make any drone pilot's mouth water:

  • A fantastic camera that takes 20MP stills and shoot 4K video
  • A 7 kilometer control range
  • 27 minutes of flight time
  • A maximum flight speed of 49 miles per hour (79 kph)
  • Eight autonomous flight modes
  • Et plus

The quad also comes with obstacle avoidance technology, like the Phantom 4, and its landing gear rises up during flight. This gives your camera a 360-degree field of view. It doesn't sound like much, but when you're in the air and you don't even have to turn the drone around to get a back shot, it saves you a ton of hassle and potential mistakes.

The Inspire 2's battery charging time is a little on the long side at 85 minutes, so you will want to make sure your battery is fully charged before heading out. I'd also suggest buying a spare or two to extend your flight sessions.

Who is it best for?

The Inspire 2 is an excellent model for filmmakers, videographers, and professional photographers. From its flight modes to its functionality, it was meant for commercial purposes.

However, there is no "professional only" drone. If you're a recreational pilot who wants top-notch tech, the Inspire 2 is a great option as well.

  • Fantastic camera quality
  • Long range and flight time
  • Eight autonomous flight modes
  • Designed specifically for professional pilots
  • Stable GPS-assisted flight
  • 360-degree field of view
  • Charging time is on the longer side

Yuneec is one of my favorite drone companies, mainly because they're one of the only manufacturers with a product line that competes directly with DJI's. (I would akin DJI as the Apple/iOS and Yuneec as the Google/Android of the consumer drone world.)

The Yuneec Typhoon H Pro is a top tier drone model. This hexacopter (six blades instead of the usual four) comes with first person view capability through a 7-inch touchscreen built in to the drone's ST16 all-in-one controller.

Its advanced GPS-assisted flight makes the drone nice and stable and gives you eight autonomous flight modes to take advantage of, including:

  • Follow Me — the drone locks on to your position and follows you automatically as you conduct an activity
  • Journey Mode — the Typhoon H Pro flies away and faces you to take aerial selfies
  • Point of Interest — the hexacopter flies around and films a central point in a perfect circle

Like the DJI Phantom 4, the Typhoon H Pro also comes with obstacle avoidance thanks to its Intel® RealSense™ technology. I found it extremely useful when flying in crowded airspaces. I was also impressed with its camera quality (12.4MP stills and 4K video) and how easy it was to manually adjust camera settings mid-flight.

The only issue I experienced is if you tilt the camera up too far, you might get part of the props in your field of view. I feel like this is something that should be tested before a model is sent out, but it's possible it just happens with the one I used.

All in all, if you're looking for a DJI alternative, I suggest considering the Typhoon H Pro.

Who is it best for?

This hexacopter is professional-grade. I've heard many commercial pilots become die-hard Yuneec fans after flying the H Pro. However, it's also a solid option for recreational pilots who want to fly a highly advanced rig.

  • Professional camera
  • Stable, easy to learn flight
  • Built-in FPV screen. No need for additional external monitor or mobile device
  • Obstacle avoidance & autonomous flight modes
  • Fast speed
  • Great community at Yuneec-Forum.com
  • If you tilt the camera up too far, you might catch part of the props in your field of view

Under $1000

Drones in the $500 to $1,000 range are still extremely advanced. This range offers you some of the best price-to-features ratios you can find and some of the top all-around drone models.

DJI Phantom 3 (Professional, Advanced, & 4K)

Allow me to introduce you to my all-time favorite drone (and RC vehicle in general), the DJI Mavic Pro. This quadcopter finally took the top complaints of drone pilots over the last four years and addressed them in an all-in-one, complete package.

First off, the camera is fantastic. It takes 12 megapixel still photos and shoots 4K video while being perfectly stabilized by its shock-mounted 3-axis gimbal. You can capture slow motion video up to 120 fps at 720p and 96 fps at 1920 x 1080 full HD. The camera can also take crisp photos at 4000 x 3000 pixels and with its 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor.

The DJI Mavic Pro also has one of the longest ranges of any drone, at 7 kilometers, and one of the longest flight times (27 minutes). I can't tell you just how helpful it is to know that flyaways are almost a thing of the past for this drone and I don't need to switch batteries every 15 minutes just to get the shots I want. And when you do need to charge batteries on the go, they only take an hour each (compared to 1.5 to 2 hours for similar models).

Mavic has a fantastic flight speed of 40 mph (64 kph). This makes it great for fast follow sequences, and its powerful motors help the quad handle rougher wind conditions. I'm also extremely impressed with the ease-of-use and accuracy of its autopilot flight capability. Each mode works as advertised and makes getting professional shots faster and easier.

But what brings this drone together is its portability. You get all of this amazing tech in a drone that's half the size of its competitors AND folds up to around the size of a water bottle for easy transport. Portability is the future, and I believe the future has already arrived with this quadcopter.

Personally, I haven't experienced anything worth complaining about when flying the Mavic Pro. Of course, battery life could always be longer. As pilots, we will always want to stay in the air as long as possible before coming back down. But every drone's flight time is limited by the current state of battery technology and each model's payload capacity.

Who is it best for?

The DJI Mavic Pro is an excellent professional drone, but it's a great option for all types of pilots. I know both recreational photographers and full time commercial pilots who swear by this quadcopter.

  • Top tier technology in a portable package
  • High end camera
  • One of the longest ranges and flight times available
  • Fast max flight speed
  • Quick battery charging time
  • Easy-to-use and accurate autopilot flight modes
  • A small percentage of customers complained about batteries arriving as duds. However, they were returned to the manufacturer and replaced

Second on my list of all-time favorite drones is the DJI Phantom 4. To me, the Phantom 4 is a less portable but more durable version of the DJI Mavic Pro.

It comes with a high tech camera that shoots 4K video and takes 12 megapixel still photos, it has a slightly longer flight time than the Mavic Pro (28 minutes), and it has an excellent 5 km control distance.

The DJI Phantom 4 was the first drone that could avoid obstacles automatically. In true DJI fashion, they pioneered this technology in consumer drones and did a surprisingly good job for its first release.

The P4 also comes with DJI's standard flight modes and some additional ones as well: Course Lock, Follow Me, Return to Home, Waypoints, Point of Interest, Home Lock, Active Track,  and TapFly. In my experience, they all work as advertised. I have been able to get some amazing footage that I never would have been able to shoot manually.

With the DJI Phantom 4, you're getting one of the most advanced and one of the most reliable drones on the market. In my opinion, its one of the safest investments you can make right now.

Who is it best for?

The Phantom 4 is best for commercial pilots and recreational pilots who want some high tech at their fingertips.

  • Fantastic all-around drone
  • Durable and reliable
  • Lots of support available
  • One to the highest quality built-in cameras
  • Long range and flight time
  • Lots of GPS assisted flight modes
  • Obstacle avoidance for stable flight
  • Has come down an entire price range since its release, for the same features
  • Longer charging time and shorter range than the Mavic Pro

This is the X-Star Premium, a little-talked-about but viable competitor to the DJI Phantom series and Yuneec Typhoon series. It's less popular than both series, but the pilots who do fly it love it.

I consider the X-Star premium to be a solid RTF professional drone that's a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the Phantom 4. It comes with some great flight modes (Follow Me, Orbit, Waypoints, & Return to Home) as well as SecureFly Technology to help you stay within regulatory flight guidelines.

The camera shoots ultra HD 4K video with a quick release 3-axis gimbal to stabilize it. You can get a live first person view and control its autonomous flight modes through the free Starlink app for iOS and Android, and the controller's LCD displays important flight telemetry data.

Due to its paired GPS/GLONASS positioning system, the drone can be flown safely outdoors as well as indoors and at low altitudes (as long as there is enough room to maneuver).

I was very happy with this drone overall. It's got everything you need to get professional-grade shots. My only concern is its takeoff can be a bit shaky and unstable. However, I was able to remedy this by hand-launching.

Who is it best for?

The X-Star premium is a nice option for professional pilots and recreational pilots who want a higher end drone and want to save a couple hundred dollars off a Phantom 4 or Mavic.

  • Camera takes excellent video and images
  • ​Easy-to-use and accurate autopilot flight modes
  • Cheaper than the Phantom 4, Typhoon H Pro, and Mavic
  • Safe to fly outdoors and indoors (with enough room to maneuver)
  • Starlink app is user friendly and intuitive
  • Short charging time for this level of drone
  • Solid flight time and range
  • Takeoff can be a bit shaky and unstable

4. DJI Phantom 3 (Professional, Advanced, & 4K)

I believe that the DJI Phantom 3 series is the best option for professional pilots on a budget. Pourquoi?

Because these drones are excellent commercial options and they offer you one of the best price-to-features ratios available. These quadcopters used to be at the top end of the market. Since other models have come out, they have dropped drastically in price but their features are still the same. If I was a professional pilot, I would choose one of them as my first working rig, hands down.

The DJI Phantom 3 comes in four versions: Professional, Advanced, 4K, and Standard. (The Standard is in one price range lower.) Let's break them down:

The Phantom 3 4K is the cheapest version. It takes 12 megapixel photos and shoots crisp 4K video, and it has an excellent flight time of 25 minutes. However, its control distance is about 1200 m (1.2 km). This is much shorter than the other two, making the drone more suitable for semi-professional pilots.

The Phantom 3 Advanced is the next version up. Video quality reduces down to 2.7K, which is still very high, and flight time also decreases by 2 minutes. However, control distance increases to 5 km, making this model more suitable for full time commercial pilots.

The Phantom 3 Professional is the version I'm biggest on. It comes with a 5 km control range, paired GPS/GLONASS positioning, 23 minutes of flight time, a camera that shoots 12MP still and 4K video, and all of DJI's standard autonomous flight modes.

So, why am I biggest on the Professional? Because I believe it offers the best price-to-features ratio. However, despite that, you can't go wrong with any of these models. They each offer a slightly different feature set to cater to different needs

Who is it best for?

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional, Advanced, and 4K are best for professional pilots on a budget or as a first drone for commercial purposes.

  • Slightly different features to cater to different needs
  • Excellent price-to-features ratio
  • All of DJI's standard autonomous flight modes
  • High quality cameras
  • Easy to fly
  • Quick start manual could be more comprehensive

The Yuneec Typhoon H is a direct competitor to the DJI Phantom 4 and Phantom 3. It comes with a powerful on-board camera mounted on a gimbal that can rotate 360 degrees, and its landing gear moves up and out of the way during flight to give you a clear field of view.

I can feel the increased stability when flying this hexacopter (six blades) compared to flying comparable quadcopters (four blades). And while its range is shorter that I would like it to be for a commercial-grade setup, I am very impressed with its autonomous flight modes.

No matter how much my maneuvering skills improve, my shots still tend to come out with shaky pans and accidental jerky movements. Flight modes like Curve Cable Cam and Point of Interest are a huge help in this department.

The obstacle avoidance on the Typhoon H is quite robust, but not as precise as the H Pro (the H Pro comes with Intel® RealSense™ technology). I found this to be negligible in most cases, but if obstacle avoidance is a big thing for you I'd suggest considering the H Pro.

Like with the Typhoon H Pro, if you're looking for a DJI Phantom 4 or 3 alternative, the Typhoon H is your next best bet.

Who is it best for?

This drone is great for commercial and recreational pilots, but its features and functionality do lend itself to be utilized at a greater capacity by pro pilots.

  • Professional camera
  • High-end camera gives you a 360-degree view
  • Built-in FPV screen on the drone's controller. No need for additional external monitor or mobile device
  • Obstacle avoidance & autonomous flight modes
  • Fast speed
  • Increased flight stability
  • Active community at Yuneec-Forum.com
  • Shorter range than I would like on a commercial-grade rig
  • Obstacle avoidance isn't as accurate as the H Pro

6. Yuneec Q500 Typhoon 4k

This is the 4K Typhoon, a quadrotor manufactured by Yuneec International. Right off the bat, I'm going to say that I really like where this rig is priced compared to both the features you're getting and drones in a similar price range.

Its camera is excellent, on par with the DJI Phantom 3 and Autel X-Star Premium. Like the Typhoon H, its range is shorter than I'd like it to be for a commercial-grade rig, but it more than makes up for it with a nice, long 25-minute flight time.

The Typhoon 4K is also 5 mph faster than the P3 and X-Star Premium, helping better handle quick pans and windy conditions.

The quad comes with two autonomous flight modes, Watch Me and Follow Me. Both help you get professional quality shots on autopilot. The controller comes with a built-in Android touchscreen that allows you to control video resolution, white balance, and light exposure mid-flight and get a first person view of your flight. You can also shoot slow motion video in 1080p at 120 fps.

For less than $1000, I'd be more than happy with the Yuneec Typhoon 4K as my everyday flier.

Who is it best for?

This quadcopter sits nicely in the middle of professional and high-end recreational. In particular, I'd strongly recommend it as a first drone for commercial business.

  • Priced very well
  • High powered HD camera
  • Long flight time
  • Fast flight speed
  • Easy-to-use and intuitive FPV touchscreen display
  • Autonomous flight modes
  • Shorter range than I'd like on a commercial-grade system
  • Less autonomous flight modes than the comparable Phantom 3 series

The GoPro Karma was one of the most anticipated drone launches of 2016, and it also became one of the biggest stories when GoPro was forced to recall it due to a faulty battery latch. This lead many people to discredit the drone entirely.

I'm not so quick to judge. Pourquoi? Because 1) they fixed the issue and 2) most of the discrediting came in the form of comparing it to the DJI Mavic Pro. Yes, Mavic is more feature rich and of better overall quality. But it's also more expensive and it isn't a GoPro drone. For GoPro fans, you can't get a better overall system made specifically for you.

My favorite feature is its foldable design. Portability is the future, and staying in true GoPro form, they made Karma extremely easy to pack and transport. It also has a respectable 20-minute flight time and a long 3 km control distance, giving you ample time and range to get your shots.

I also really enjoyed using its dual operator feature. Using the GoPro Passenger app, one person can maneuver the drone while the other either views your flight through an FPV screen or controls the camera itself. You can also use Karma's four autonomous flight modes to get expert quality shots.

If you're a GoPro user, I'd strongly suggest considering Karma.

Who is it best for?

GoPro fans, action sports filming. However, if you're an action sports filmer I'd also suggest checking out the next drone in this list.

  • Made specifically for GoPro users
  • Extremely portable and easy to transport
  • Solid flight time and long control distance
  • Dual operator capability
  • Four autonomous flight modes
  • Camera is easily detachable
  • Some pilots have experienced the GPS cutting out

Moins de 500 $

Welcome to the drones under $500 price range. This is one of my favorite price ranges, because it appeals to the largest amount of pilots. Here, you will find some great photography drones, follow me drones, and racing drones.

Parrot BeBop 2 FPV Bundle

RISE Vusion 250 Racing Drone

1. DJI Phantom 3 Standard

The DJI Phantom 3 is one of the drones I recommend to people most often for many reasons:

  • In my opinion, it has the best price-to-features ratio of any drone
  • The camera is extremely high quality. It's gimbal helps provide smooth footage and crisp images.
  • It comes with some advanced technology, but it's also easy to learn how to fly. It's one of the few high tech drones I'd recommend as a first-time flyer as well
  • Charging time is relatively quick, so you can get back in the air asap.
  • Flight time and range are both more than long enough
  • It comes ready to fly and setup is intuitive.
  • If you run into any issues, there are a ton of other pilots in online communities around the web you can ask for help. You can also turn to Google and YouTube and find a ton of great information.
  • Due to its onboard GPS, it can be flown safely both outdoors and indoors (with enough room to maneuver. Not recommended for household flight).
  • It's one of the most stable drones I've flown, even in 15+ mph winds.

And last but not least, the Phantom 3 Standard comes with all of DJI's standard intelligent flight modes: Course Lock, Follow Me, Waypoints, Point of Interest, and Home Lock. So even if your pilot skills aren't up to par just yet, you can still fly and film like an expert.

Who is it best for?

I can't recommend this drone enough for just about any pilot. It can be flown professionally as a great budget professional option, and it's perfect for recreational pilots who want to shoot high quality photography/videography and build their skills on a quality rig.

  • Best price-to-features ratio
  • Great all around drone for all types of pilots
  • High-end camera and gimbal setup
  • Easy to learn how to fly
  • Long flight time and range
  • Ready to fly
  • Lots of pilots active in online communities
  • Stable even in windy conditions
  • Lots of accessories available to enhance your flights
  • Advanced intelligent flight modes
  • Isn't easily transportable without a case or specially designed backpack

The DJI Spark is the ultimate personal drone. It packs a ton of advanced technology and features into a nice, compact system that anyone can use, regardless of flight skills. I have yet to find a drone that's this easy to pick up and start using right away.

If you're looking for an affordable flying camera you can take anywhere, I think Spark is the best drone for traveling with. It's already small in size, and it folds down even smaller for easy transport.

But where it really stands out in this price range is its autonomous flight capabilities. Let's break down a few of them:

  • The drone uses facial recognition to lock on to you or the subjects you want to capture.
  • Hand launching and landing allows you to launch the drone anywhere and return it to safety.
  • Gestures: Use specific hand gestures while the drone is flying in front of you to change its position, take a picture or video, or return it back to you.
  • Course lock: Set a course and the drone will fly and film automatically.
  • Follow Me: Choose a subject and Spark will follow it on autopilot.
  • Point of Interest: Choose a central point and Spark will pan around it while keeping it in the center of the frame.
  • Dronie: Command Spark to automatically take an aerial selfie of you and the people around you.
  • And many more

You can control Spark using your hand (gestures), the remote control, or DJI's FPV goggles. Connecting your mobile device to the controller allows you adjust in-flight settings and control autonomous flight modes, and its gimbal stabilization removes shakiness and ensures that the shots you get are smooth. You can also edit photos/videos and share them instantly from your mobile device.

The quad comes with a high quality 12MP/FHD 1920×1080 camera, and it takes less than an hour to fully charge. DJI really went above an beyond when putting together this personal drone.

My only gripe is that flight time is a bit less than advertised. I was able to get about 12 to 14 minutes per flight when filming aggressively or flying in windy conditions, so I'd suggest carrying an extra battery or two with you to be safe.

Who is it best for?

This drone is great for travelers, people who are looking for an affordable "follow me" drone, and anyone looking for a high quality personal drone that's easy to use and can be flown by anyone.

  • Small and foldable for easy transport
  • Some of the most advanced autonomous flight modes of any drone
  • Superior camera quality for this price range
  • Can be flown with minimal pilot skills
  • Easy to set up and get started
  • Reliable and durable
  • Less than an hour to fully charge
  • Flight time is sometimes 2 to 4 minutes less than advertised

3. Parrot BeBop 2 FPV Bundle

Parrot is one of the most well-known manufacturers in the sUAS industry. I've been a long time fan of theirs due how they combine design quality with affordability in their drone models.

The Parrot Bebop 2 is my favorite model of theirs. It's compact yet powerful enough to fly stably in windy conditions. And it has a fantastic camera for a drone of this size, taking 14 megapixel still photos and shooting video in 1080p in RAW, JPEG and DNG formats. It also has a battery life on the top end of the spectrum in this price range (25 minutes), it charges in less than an hour, and it's blazing fast.

But when the FPV version of this drone came out, I hopped on it ASAP. For me, this took it from a fun flyer with a good camera to something I could use to get professional quality shots as well. Combined with Follow Me and the other flight modes you can get on the (paid) Flight Plan add-on to Parrot's Free Flight app, the Bebop 2 becomes a viable budget commercial drone.

My only wish is that the drone had a longer range. 300 m is a little short for me. But if you aren't planning to fly more than 300 meters away, the Bebop 2 is a solid FPV package.

Who is it best for?

The Bebop 2 is best for people who want an affordable FPV experience with a high-end camera (and some nice autopilot flight modes) or commercial pilots on a budget.

  • Affordable high quality FPV experience
  • Great camera
  • Top-of-the-range flight time
  • Autonomous flight modes
  • Fully charged in under and hour
  • Fast flight speed
  • Shorter range than I would like

The AP10 Pro is one of my favorite affordable drones. This ready-to-fly system sells for a little over $300 but it packs a powerful punch in terms of features:

  • 25 minutes of battery life
  • A 700 meter range
  • 16 megapixel camera that shoots video in 1080p
  • Live first person view streaming
  • A 44 mph (71 kph) maximum flight speed (on par with the DJI Phantom 4)
  • GPS and size allow it to be flown outdoors and indoors (with enough room to maneuver safely)
  • Auto position hold allows for stable shots
  • Small enough to be transported easily, but large enough and powerful enough to handle windy conditions
  • And all-around, stable, high quality flyer

The quad also returns to home automatically if its battery is getting too low, and the mobile app allows you to control the camera and adjust settings mid-flight.

One piece of advice with this drone: The propellers are self-tightening. Make sure not to over-tighten them or you will have a hell of a time trying to  get them off (like I did).

Who is it best for?

The AP10 Pro is a nice option for recreational pilots who want an affordable high quality camera. I'd also recommend it to budding pro pilots who want to build their aerial photography and videography skills.

  • Long battery life and control distance for this price level
  • Auto Return to Home is a very helpful feature, especially for new pilots
  • GPS gives it autonomous flight capability
  • Great camera
  • Flight speed comparable to DJI Phantom 4
  • Propellers are easy to over-tighten

5. Force1 Drone Racing Kit

This racing kit from Force1 is the best beginner racing drone I have come across.

When searching for a racing drone, most often you will find either a nice RTF drone but without the other necessary components (FPV goggles, a camera, controller, etc) or you will find a full racing kit but the drone itself is far too advanced to learn with.

This kit is one of the only ones I would suggest to new pilots who want to try out quadcopter racing. It has everything you need (controller, FPV goggles, built-in camera) and the drone itself is simple to use and safer to fly than other racing drones. It also comes with a handy carrying case for easy transport.

It isn't as fast as other racing drones I've flown, but I think that's a good thing for pilots who are just starting out in the sport.

Who is it best for?

This racing kit from Force1 is a great racing drone for new pilots.

  • Contains everything you need to get started in the sport
  • Safer to fly than other racing drones
  • Long control distance
  • Ready to fly out of the box
  • Isn't as fast as other racing drones

If you're looking for a ready-to-fly model that will make you competitive in the field, I believe the RISE Vusion 250 is a great RTF racing drone for you.

It comes with all the necessary components (RTF quadcopter, controller, FPV goggles, charger) and then some (spare battery, spare propellers). The spare batteries can help double your flight sessions, and the spare propellers are a must have for new racing pilots, as crashes are inevitable.

What's most impressive about this drone is its injection-molded modular design. Each major part is detachable, so instead of breaking off during crashes, it simply detaches, allowing you to reattach it and start flying again. It can also hold a micro SD card up to 32GB to record, store, and save your races and practice sessions.

Who is it best for?

This quadcopter is great for any racing pilot looking for an easy-to-repair ready-to-fly racing drone.

  • Ready to fly out of the box
  • Easy to repair. No soldering required
  • Comes with everything you need plus spare parts
  • Very fast
  • Not as suitable for brand new pilots

Under $300

This price range contains the smallest amount of drones in this guide, but they pack a big punch. These quadcopters have excellent price-to-features ratios and fly beautifully.

The Solo by 3D Robotics (3DR) is one of my favorite drone systems. Besides looking totally bad ass, this quadcopter is packed with some nice technology.

For less than $300, you get a GoPro-capable quad, 20 minutes of flight time, a 800 meter control distance, and a blazing fast top speed of 55 mph (89 kph). It's also one of the only drones that allows in-flight access to your GoPro for FPV and to adjust settings. In my opinion, this alone makes it worth the money.

To put the cherry on top, I was really impressed with Solo's four autopilot flight modes. As noted previously, my flight skills are good, but not nearly as smooth as they could be. Being able to use Follow Me, Orbit, and Cable Cam (and sometimes Selfie) to get clean, professional quality shots ups my game considerably.

My only concern with this multirotor is if you aren't using a GoPro, you most likely won't get the same quality shots. But even if you aren't using a GoPro, it's tough to get these features, on a drone that flies this nicely, for this price.

Who is it best for?

I'd strongly recommend Solo to GoPro users who aren't trying to break the bank, but who still want some advanced features to play around with. Solo also makes for a nice entry-level professional quadcopter.

  • GoPro shots on an affordable rig
  • Good flight time and control distance
  • Allows in-flight access to your GoPro
  • Very fast top speed
  • Excellent autonomous flight modes
  • Nice entry-level pro quad
  • Probably not as valuable overall if you aren't using a GoPro

The H501S from Hubsan is my pick for the top budget photography drone. If you're looking for a simple, easy-to-use, and inexpensive quadcopter for aerial imagery, I suggest considering this quadcopter.

It comes ready to fly with everything you need right out of the box. No additional parts needed. The H501S comes with a high end 1080p camera, a 300 meter control range, and a full 19 minutes of flight time.

But what I really love about this drone is that it comes with FPV capability standard. Through a 4.3 inch LCD screen built in to its controller, you can see what your drone is seeing in real time. This gives you a bird's eye view of the world below and it allows you to get accurate shots.

The quad also comes with some handy autonomous flight modes. With Follow Me, you can instruct the drone to lock on to a target and film wherever it goes. The drone can also return back to you with the push of a button using the Return to Home function. And you can have it hold its altitude while you control the camera and get the shot you're looking for.

Who is it best for?

The H501S is a great photography drone for pilots on a budget. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to get in the air and get a first person view of the world around them without investing too much in an expensive rig.

  • Nice price-to-features ratio
  • Ready to fly out of the box
  • Built-in FPV screen. No need for an external monitor or mobile device
  • Quality camera
  • Long flight time
  • Can be flown indoors and out
  • Autonomous flight modes
  • Takes longer than average to fully charge

DOBBY is one of the coolest drones in this list. You could call it a 'niche' drone, in that it's specifically meant for taking aerial selfies. I'm not a big selfie taker, but I think they've done a great job designing it for this purpose.

First off, the quad charges in just 45 minutes. This is great if you don't have any extra batteries and you want to get back in the air as fast as possible. It also comes with a fantastic camera for this price range, shooting video in crisp 4K and taking 13 megapixel still photos.

Flight time is a little lacking at 9 minutes. If you're using it just for taking selfies and quick shots, this is ample time. But if you're using it as a photography/videography drone as well, you will want to carry extra batteries with you just in case.

I found its 200 meter range to be more than enough. This gives you enough control distance to get close ups as well as long shots of you and your surroundings. I was also very pleased they gave DOBBY a 16GB internal storage capacity so you don't need to worry about memory cards.

The drone is ready to fly out of the box, and you can get a first person view and adjust settings using your smartphone or tablet. The quad is also small enough to be flown indoors, and it comes with Follow Me mode, Orbit, target tracking, and a 10-second auto-follow video capture feature.

And last but not least, DOBBY is small and foldable, so its extremely ea​sy to take with you wherever you go and bust out whenever its needed.

Who is it best for?

All in all, DOBBY is an excellent drone for taking selfies. I'd recommend it to travelers, families, and anyone who wants to take quick shots on the go.

  • High quality camera
  • Fast charging time
  • 16GB internal storage. No need for memory cards
  • First person view capability
  • Autonomous flight modes
  • Foldable for easy transport
  • Could use more flight time

Moins de 200 $

I absolutely LOVE the drones in this price range. They're great for beginners, they don't break the bank, and some come with FPV and even some GPS autopilot features. However, this is also the range where camera quality tends to drop off sharply. Not for all of the drones, but definitely most.

The H502S is another great drone from Hubsan. We've already talked about the upgraded H501S version, and later on we'll break down the X4. All of these are excellent drones in their own right.

However, you simply won't find a better GPS drone around this price, and you almost won't find one worth buying for any cheaper.

Drones with GPS tend to be more stable flyers, they handle crowded spaces better (like indoor areas), and they give the drone autopilot capability. The H502S fits the bill on all of these. I found the H502S to be the most stable drone under $200 and the easiest to fly. It's also the only one with Follow Me mode (you can instruct the drone to follow and film a target automatically).

The drone comes with a 720p HD camera standard, a range of 215 meters, a 12-minute flight time, and an LCD screen built in to the controller for FPV (first person view) flight. For a rig than comes with everything you need in the box, you really can't ask for much more in this price range.

My only wish is that the drone didn't take so long to charge, but that's easily mitigated with a few extra batteries.

Who is it best for?

Due to its price-to-features ratio, I'm really big on the Hubsan H502S. If you're a recreational pilot looking for a budget GPS drone with some advanced features you usually only see on much more expensive rigs, I suggest considering this quadcopter.

  • GPS capability at low price point
  • Stable flight indoors and outdoors
  • HD camera
  • Good flight time and range
  • Autonomous flight capability
  • Built in FPV screen. No need for external monitor or mobile device
  • Relatively long charging time

I'm a big fan of the UDI U842 for pilots on a budget. In my opinion, it's the best cheap FPV drone for the money. For a little over $100, you can get a full first person view flight experience.

​Using the UDI mobile app, you can get a live first person view of what your drone is seeing in real time. You can also attach your mobile device to the controller and fly that way, or you can use its built-in Gravity Induction Mode to fly using only your mobile device (the drone responds to how you tilt your device).

The U842 is medium-sized drone, making it great for outdoor flight. And it comes with high and low speed modes to cater to different skill levels. When you're just starting out, I suggest using the low speed mode to practice taking off, landing, and some simply aerial maneuvers. As your skills improve, switch over to high speed for more acrobatic stunts.

Also, the low voltage alarm is a huge help for letting you know when the battery is getting low and landing safely.

Who is it best for?

If you're looking for a budget FPV drone, the UDI U842 from DBPOWER is an excellent choice.

  • FPV capability for a little over $100
  • Package comes with an extra battery to extend your flight sessions
  • 720p camera
  • Controller or mobile device control
  • 360-degree flips with the push of a button
  • Different speed modes
  • Low voltage alarm
  • Flight time and range are a bit lacking, but this is common in this price range

The Holy Stone F181 is similar to the UDI U842 reviewed above. The F181 doesn't come with FPV capability, but it flies nicer and it has a longer range and slightly longer flight time.

In my tests, the motors on the F181 are also more powerful, helping the drone better handle windy conditions and making it a faster drone overall. Its battery also charges a lot faster (80 minutes compared to 120).

So if FPV isn't important to you, I'd strongly suggest the Holy Stone F181. It's an excellent flyer with a nice camera as well.

Who is it best for?

The Holy Stone F181 is best for beginner pilots who aren't concerned with first person view, but who want a stable, fun, and easy to use quadcopter to have fun and practice with.

  • Stable flyer
  • Ready to fly out of the box
  • Easy to learn with
  • Return to Home and Headless modes
  • Longer control distance
  • Shorter charging time
  • Strong motors

If you're a GoPro user, I'm very excited to introduce this drone to you — the Tokky Bugs3. It is, by far, the BEST budget GoPro drone on the market today. So if you're on a budget and you want to get your GoPro in the air, I can't recommend a better model to you than the Bugs3.

Not only do you get you GoPro airborne for under $200, but you get 18 to 19 minutes up there as well. That's simply unheard of in this price range for any type of drone. You also get a 300 to 500 meter control distance. That is orders of magnitude longer than you'll find in this price range as well.

Finally, the quadcopter is ready to fly out of the box, it comes with high and low flight speed for different types of shots, and it comes with a gimbal to stabilize your shots. I honestly can't believe the drone is priced like this. (In my opinion, they could easily sell it for $50-$100 more.)

My only issue is the drone takes well over double the time to charge than most drones (four hours), so I strongly suggest carrying a couple spare batteries with you in case you want to extend your flight sessions. Other than that, the Tokky Bugs3 is the top budget drone for GoPro users.

Who is it best for?

The Tokky Bugs3 is best for GoPro fans who want an affordable and effective option for getting their camera airborne.

  • Affordable GoPro drone
  • Long flight time and control distance
  • Two speed modes
  • Ready to fly
  • Stable flyer

Under $100

If you're looking for a cheap drone, the following are some of the top inexpensive models available. I made sure to include quadcopters with flight times and features on the higher end of this price range.

Rabing Visuo FPV Quadcopter

The QCopter QC1 is my favorite cheap drone, and has been for about six months now. At under $100, it's an affordable quadcopter that flies nicely and gives you ample time to have fun in the air.

Its 2 megapixel camera isn't of the highest quality, but it's better than average for a drone in this price range. The QC1 charges in 90 to 120 minutes, which isn't too bad, but QCopter made up for it by including an extra battery in the package, standard.

However, the two reasons I'm so big on this quadcopter are 1) it's surprisingly stable and easy to fly for a drone that doesn't come with GPS, and 2) you get 15 minutes of flight time on a single charge. This is much longer than most drones in this price range. For beginner pilots, the extra flight time is fantastic for maximizing your flight sessions.

Who is it best for?

The QCopter QC1 is an excellent cheap drone for beginners or for intermediate pilots who want a fun flyer to mess around with. And it makes for a great gift.

  • Easy to fly
  • Fun to learn with
  • Above average camera for this price range
  • Package comes with an extra battery to extend your flight sessions
  • Long flight time
  • Takes longer to charge than I would like

The MJX X400W from DBPOWER is one of the drones I recommend most to new pilots.

It comes with a 720p camera that's surprisingly crisp for such an inexpensive drone, it has a nine minute flight time, and it has a 100 meter control range, which is more than enough to get the shots you want.

But most importantly, the drone comes with FPV capability. You can attach your mobile device to the drone's controller and get a first person view from up above. The X400W is one of the cheapest ways to get a bird's eye view.

In my tests, the quad was also powerful enough to handle outdoor winds quite well. It does get pushed around a bit, but for the most part it's quite steady.

Who is it best for?

The MJX X400W is a fantastic drone for pilots who want to learn how to fly, practice their skills, and get an FPV experience.

  • Surprisingly good camera
  • Good flight time
  • Affordable FPV experience
  • Small enough to fly indoors and out
  • Strong motors
  • Mode sans tête
  • VR headset compatible
  • Can get pushed around if conditions are too windy

The UDI U818A HD+ is one of the top overall drones for new pilots, and I'm really impressed with this package:

  • The quadcopter itself
  • The controller
  • USB charger
  • A bonus wireless powerbank
  • 4GB micro SD memory card to store your imagery + SD card reader
  • 2 batteries
  • 4 extra propellers
  • And a screwdriver for repairs

The package has everything you need to fly your drone, charge it on the go, extend your flight sessions, save your images and videos, and replace parts if necessary. I can't think of a better beginner bundle.

And to put the cherry on top, the drone itself is excellent for new pilots. It is very powerful for this price range, so it handles windy conditions beautifully. And it is designed with extremely sturdy propeller guards as a standard feature. I test crashed it a few times and didn't even leave a scratch.

I have gifted the UDI U818A HD+ many times and will continue to do so.

Who is it best for?

The U818A HD+ from UDI is the one of the best options for pilots who want to learn how to fly and save their aerial imagery as well.

  • Great drone for new pilots
  • Built in propeller guards
  • Package comes with a bunch of spare parts and accessories
  • Powerful motors
  • Stable outdoor flight
  • Size can make it tough to transport without a carrying case

4. Rabing Visuo FPV Quadcopter

This is one of the coolest drones I've flown — the Visuo FPV quadcopter from Rabing. Not only is it a fun flyer, but it comes with some advanced technology for such a low-priced drone.

First off, it comes with a solid camera that takes 2MP still photos and shoots video in 1080p. You can attach your mobile device to the controller to get a first person view of what the quad is seeing in real time. And the drone has a 10 to 15 minutes flight time.

I'm also a really big fan of this drone's foldability. The arms and propellers fold inward to make it much easier to store and travel with. And it comes with some advanced flight modes: Altitude Hold, Return to Home, Headless Mode, Gravity Sensing Mode, Speed Mode, Auto Take Off and Landing, Flight Tracking, and you can even set a customizable route for the quad to follow using the SMAO FPV mobile app.

It's pretty amazing how they packed all of this into such an inexpensive drone.

Who is it best for?

In my opinion, the Visuo FPV quadcopter is a smart option for pilots who want a longer flight time and who want some advanced features as well (such as FPV and customizable routes).

  • Good flight time
  • FPV capability
  • Foldable for easy transport
  • Advanced flight modes
  • HD camera
  • Short charging time
  • Shorter than average control distance

Under $50

Drones in the sub $50 range are great for new pilots, people who want a fun flyer to mess around with, and they make excellent gifts. All of these quadcopters come with cameras and one even has first person view (FPV) capability.

1. Rabing SMAO M1 Pocket Drone

The SMAO M1 is an awesome micro drone. It comes with a 1MP camera that shoots video in 720×576 resolution, an 8 minute flight time (which is quite long for this size drone), and it charges in under an hour.

But its most valuable feature is its FPV (first person view) capability. Using your mobile device, you can attach it to the top of the controller and get a live video feed of what your drone is seeing. The drone also folds and fits snugly into a compartment on the controller for easy transport.

Who is it best for?

The SMAO M1 is a great drone for new pilots who want an FPV experience for under $50.

  • Foldable and transportable
  • HD camera
  • FPV capability
  • Good flight time
  • Less than an hour to charge

The Hubsan H107C is the final Hubsan in this list, but I believe it is a fantastic overall mini drone.

Hubsan got all of the right aspects correct. It has a nice, long 100 meter control distance, a short 30 to 40 minute charging time to get you back in the air quickly, and a surprisingly good 2 megapixel camera that shoots video in 720p. Its 8-minute flight time is also very respectable, and it comes with normal and expert modes for different skill levels.

All in all, I found this quad to be a really fun flyer that's also durable and easy to fly.

Who is it best for?

The Hubsan H107C is a great little drone for beginner pilots.

  • Flies well indoors and outdoors
  • Good camera
  • Plage de contrôle longue
  • Agile and acrobatic
  • Two flight modes for different skill levels
  • Short charging time

If you're looking for a slightly larger drone for under $50, consider the Syma X5C. It's one of the most purchased drones of all time and is widely regarded as one of the best for new pilots to learn with.

Its camera isn't the best quality, but it's what you would expect in this price range. It has a 7-minute flight time, a 50 meter control range, and it's ready to fly right out of the box.

Who is it best for?

The Syma X5C is great for pilots who are looking for a larger drone in this price range that's fun to fly.

  • Larger size
  • Okay camera
  • Great for learning with and practicing your skills
  • Ready to fly
  • No additional flight modes

The Syma X11C is a nice drone overall, but I think it's especially good for kids to fly and have fun with.

It's a small drone, so it can be flown indoors. But it's also slightly bigger than a nano drone, so it can be flown outdoors as well. The camera is quite good, and it has a long enough flight time to get some good maneuvers in.

However, my main reason for choosing the Syma X11C as one of my favorite drones in this price range is its propeller guard. All pilots crash a lot in the beginning, but kids do especially. This propeller guard will protect the drone as well as anything it hits from getting damaged.

The quad also comes with high and low speed modes to cater to different skill levels.

Who is it best for?

The Syma X11C is a sturdy quadcopter that's great for kids to learn on and have fun with.

  • Durable
  • Good flight time
  • Can be flown indoors and outdoors
  • Two speed modes
  • Technology isn't very advanced
