Expecting a drone under your Christmas tree this year? You’re not alone: The Federal Aviation Administration expects that up to one million drones will be sold as Christmas presents this year.
Here are some of the drones worth considering:
Your first drone
What: Phantom 3 Standard
Chinese drone-maker DJI’s Phantom 3 Standard is an ideal drone for amateur to semi-professional photographers or filmmakers. It’s ready to fly out of the box and has the ability to record 2.7K video and 12-megapixel photos.
For the dedicated photographer
What: Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K
This flying camera boats a 4K, 3-axis stabilized camera with ultra-high-definition resolution that is four times higher than HD. The Typhoon Q500 4K also comes with a built-in video feed to the transmitter, allowing pilots to see what the drone sees from their handheld RC transmitter.
