An In-Depth Guide to the Best Drones

Publish date:

Eric Hansen of Wirecutter writes an in-depth guide to the best drones out there for aerial photography.

He writes: "Of the dozens of drones aimed at the aspiring aerial photographer/videographer, the $1,300 DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ is the one we recommend for most people, as it’s the only one that is easy to control while having great battery life and range, terrific safety features, and a smartphone app that lets you preview your on-drone camera for photography and piloting ease...That said, $1,300 is a lot of money to spend on a thing that you could crash on its maiden voyage. If you’re unfamiliar with how to fly drones or just need to fine tune your skills (and who doesn’t), we highly suggest getting a cheapo trainer drone before putting your $1,300 investment aloft."
