Our list of the top rated drones for sale include drones that are excellent choices for both enthusiasts and beginners who desire to become experts in this exciting hobby. All three drones have cameras for aerial photography and several unique aspects. That said, if you are debating investing in drone, here is a list of the top 3 rated to buy:
- DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter Drone
The DJI Phantom 3 Professional is hands-down the best drone on the market and, frankly, an amazing piece of technology. While this drone is definitely not a toy, amateur pilots can still learn the ropes with its user-friendly features. As with any drone on the market, beginners must still be prepared to do research before their first take-off. The DJI Phantom 3 Professional has a flight time of about 22 minutes and is more powerful and more attuned to the pilot’s control compared to the previous models. An improved motor makes flight more stable and improvements to the camera, app, and extended range are also notable. Those who purchase drones for their photographic vale will not be disappointed with the DJI Phantom 3 Professional. It is regarded by many as the best in the market for aerial photography. Besides the UHD camera, you can change the angle of the camera, start/stop recording, take photos and do all of this with the drone’s controller without using the app.
- Parrot Bebop
Parrot is a leader in the drone market and so it is no surprise that the Bebop is impressive with a 14 mega pixel full HD 1080P resolution camera, image stabilizer, and its ability to fly indoors and outdoors. Those new to the hobby will find a user-friendly interface that includes many innovative options. With the press of the ‘Take Off’ button the drone lifts off and hovers over the area and automatically begins to record its journey. If you want to spend a lot more money you can get some better features with the DJI Phantom 2 or DJI Phantom3, but this little drone is still powerful, stable and a well-made aircraft. It offers a variety of methods to fly the aircraft including with one figure or in-app joystick control.
- Parrot AR. Drone 2.0 Power Edition
This is one of the most affordable drones you can buy when you count the features packed inside, and, as stated before, Parrot has been a leader in the market for a long time. Compared to the regular AR Drone, the Power Edition flies more stable and performs stunts with ease. The Power Edition comes with 2 more powerful batteries that give a total of up to 36 minutes of flight time indoors and outdoors. For those who are more serious about flying and care less about taking high quality pictures, the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Power Edition is the way to go. That is not to say that the drone does not take amazing pictures and videos, either, it’s just not the primary purpose of the aircraft. It performs nearly as we as the DJI Phantom 3 Professional, minus the camera enhancements, and for just a fraction of the price.
