If you're looking to buy a drone this season, lucky for you, there's quite a bunch of drones to choose from. As time pass by, drones becomes more and more mainstream. This means that you don't have to settle with a low-powered overpriced unit just so you can have a camera drone to use. Now, you can choose a drone based on your budget and specific needs. Here are some of your possible options.

Drones For Beginners

If you are a beginner but wants good quality drones, you can go for any of DJI's less expensive drones. DJI has been known for its intelligent drone units that makes it easy for beginners to fly. The good thing about DJI drones is that they aren't low-quality but they are still user-friendly nonetheless. You can go for the DJI Phantom 3 Standard, DJI Phantom 4 or the DJI Phantom 3 Professional. For non-DJI options, you can opt for a Yuneec Breeze 4K if you want to grab a good deal. It's also an easy-to-fly drone that's just priced at $399 for a bundle that includes two flight batteries above many others. It's also one of the best beginner drones on the market.

Play-time Low-budget Drones

If all you need is a toy drone, there are quite a number of units to choose from. The good thing about it is that you don't have to spend for a professional drone just to have some fun flying one. You can get the Hubsan X4 Quadcopter for just around $80 and enjoy flying it to up to 100 meters distance. It also has a camera with live streaming. The $60 Syma X5C Quadcopter is also a good play-time drone that's equipped with a camera. If you want an even cheaper drone, you can get the $45 Hubsan X4 (H107C) 4 drone that comes with a 0.3 MP camera.

Drones For The Backpackers

If you're a backpacking photographer, there are a few drones that you can enjoy and one of which is the DJI Mavic Pro. The Mavic Pro doesn't only offer superb imagery, it's also super portable. On top of that, this drone is also very smart and is equipped with multiple flying modes to choose from. It's got obstacle avoidance sensors and other necessary functions that help it avoid collisions.

Furthermore, you can also go for the Lily drone if you want a waterproof drone that's capable of following you as you do your outdoorsy things. GoPro's Karma drone is also one good adventure drone for active individuals. It's worth noting though that the Karma is still recalled for its power-related issues but it is also expected to come back to the market once the company solves the problem.

Drones For Professionals

For the pros, the one drone that comes to mind is the DJI Inspire 2. This drone screams professional from its specs to its price. For a few thousand bucks, you can get a drone that comes with superior video quality that's pretty much designed for filmography. It also has two cameras. There's one underneath and there is also one in front. You can also opt for a front camera with interchangeable lenses. Also, since it's from DJI, the Inspire 2 is also one of the smartest drones you can buy right now.
