Top Picks for Cheap Video Drones
The popularity of owning a personal drone has gone up dramatically over the past year, thanks to the increase in available of cheap video drones for sale. With so many different types and brands out there, it can be hard to decide on which drone you should buy for your first purchase.
We’ve looked at the cheap video-ready drones on the market and narrowed down a brief list that you should consider without breaking the bank. UDI U818A First on the list is the UDI U818A quadcopter, and arguably the cheapest video drone for sale right now that will fly for at least ten minutes per battery.
This sounds poor to the inexperienced flier, but it is actually pretty respectable and you’re just not going to find this level of build quality in a drone that is priced at around 50 bucks. Revell X-Spy A trusted brand in the model industry, Revell’s new quadcopter comes with its own spying app to allow for live camera viewing on your smartphone, plus it’s very compact to allow for better sneaking capabilities.
The only downside to this sub-$100 drone is it doesn’t take hard, direct hits very well, naturally, due to its small size and build. Hubsan X4 H107D FPV The non-camera ready version of this drone is one of the highest recommended and cheapest drone on the market. It comes as no surprise that this cheap video drone for sale is as good as its value cousin.
This drone comes with its own LCD screen on the remote, giving you the First-Person View that the model ID alludes to. You can record the footage directly onto an SD card, which most people will take a few trips to fill up using non-HD resolution with a battery that lasts below 10 minutes. The good thing is that it can be recharged in about 30min through USB. Great for killing time on the road.
Micro Drone 2.0
The Micro Drone 2.0 is to a great degree well manufactured (all parts are replaceable), amazingly slick and sufficiently durable to withstand even the most disastrous impacts. It's likewise inconceivably quick and the right-hand stick is super touchy so keep it simple if flying in a small room or it'll be into the closest solid object before you can blink. A HD camera is accessible as an add-on and it's well worth fitting it. Not at all like most little cameras that create square, fluffy 480 film, this one remotely records sufficiently fresh 720 widescreen visuals – and stills – and saves it all to an on-board MicroSD card.
Parrot Airborne Night Our final pick out of all the cheap video drones for sale is one just above $100. This new mini-drone is releasing in a few months, but it’s already creating a ton of buzz. The folks at Parrot have developed an affordable drone that can patrol the night skies, thanks to the utilization of white LEDs. Pilots can activate these lights from an app on their smartphone and adjust the brightness of the LEDs. This makes for great opportunities to capture creatures of the night. While this drone doesn’t capture live video like the others, one snapshots onto a 1gig flash, we felt it was worth mentioning for the night capabilities alone.
