The top 5 drone models of 2017

As this year draws to a close, it is worthwhile taking a closer look at some of the best drones in the market today. Nowadays, with most of the drones out there being predominantly quadcopters, you can bet that they are more than simply glorified tech toys. Those days are long gone. The good news is that the sheer application of some of the best technology out there has come a very long way in a relatively short time. Whether it concerns thermal imaging or any other vital aspect, the technological upgrades of today are the best.

Most of the drones in the market of today put all the earliest models to absolute shame as far as the aspects of stabilization and video quality is concerned. Some of the cinematic and imaging applications (both small and large) in the newer drones are simply stunning. Sure, some of them may be a bit too expensive, but you can be sure of the fact that you will get exactly what you paid for.

DJI Inspire 2: If money isn’t much of a problem for you, this is probably one of the best drones for you. Not only will it deliver the best video capture at a superb quality of 5.2K, but it also has an excellent build as well as a top-end performance. Sure it may be rather hard on the wallet, but ultimately it will end up being more than a worthy purchase in the long run.

DJI Phantom 4 Pro: Now the Phantom 4 is a stellar model by itself as well as having a affordable price, but this also has additional obstacle sensors as well as a greatly improved camera. Quite the nifty little gadget indeed.

DJI Mavic Pro: Its main attraction of a distortion-free 4K video camera is stabilised and sharp, plus given its size, it is capable of a lot more than most other similar drone models out there. For all the pilots out there, it is an excellent choice.

Parrot Bebop 2 FPV: For rural pilots, this model is quite the compact and attractive package, even though it tends to run into problems when dealing with long distance flights. Its black and white appearance gives it quite the sleek look on the whole.

Parrot Disco FPV: Sure, it isn’t the most practical drone to fly for certain reasons, but it makes for its overall sleek boomerang-like appearance and the fact that it is one of the most fun drone models to fly.

Ultimately, you need to do your homework thoroughly before you even think of spending money on a drone. No two ways about that, really. After all, they are rather expensive, no matter which way you look at it. There are a few cheap models available under $100 or so, but if you are looking out for a stable solid model, you will definitely have to spend around $500 for sure.

Do make sure that you zero down on the size of the drone that suits your fancy. Depending on your particular needs, you will have to ensure that it fulfills all of your needs. Also, people tend to have the misconception about a small drone being more efficient, but this is not always the case. Last, but not the least, make sure that you keep yourself aware of all the important safety regulations of drones. That is something you simply cannot afford to forget. Make sure that you read up on all the important guidelines about each and every aspect of the drones, including no-fly zones.
