Choosing the right drone for you

With such a long list of deals for drones, how do you decide which one to buy? These drones can be categorized into general categories: toy drones, hobby drones, camera drones, and racing drones.  Drones from different classes have a different set of features. The price of the drone also varies across these general categories.

Toy drones

Toy drones are the cheapest drones in the market. With their small sizes and ease of use, they are geared towards kids and beginners. These drones are usually very fast and come with an array of tricks and stunts.

Hobby drones

Hobby drones are a little more sophisticated. Most of them can come with casual-grade cameras which are great for leisure flying but are not good enough for professional drone photography. These drones are perfect for pilots who just want to fly their drones for pleasure and entertainment. Some of these hobby drones even come with FPV technology which can take the fun factor of drone flight a level higher.

Camera drones

Camera drones come with professional-grade cameras, often able to capture at least 1080p videos. Most of them are also equipped with gimbals that help in capturing stable and perfectly level videos. These drones are good enough for professional drone photography. With an array of other advanced features such as obstacle avoidance, unique camera modes, and automated flight modes, you can expect camera drones to be much more expensive.

Racing drones

Racing drones are built with lightweight frames and powerful motors for the sole purpose of maximizing flight speed. They come with FPV-capable cameras that help drone racers navigate the twists and turns of drone racing courses. Most racing drones are made for customization, with experienced drone racers swapping in custom motors, propellers, and ESCs. The field of  drone racing is for the more technically advanced drone pilots.

Final thoughts

Drones have enjoyed a year-by-year increase in popularity, and this year seems to continue this trend. These Cyber Monday deals may be your last chance to get huge discounts on some of the best and most popular drone models in the market.
