The 10 Best RC Drones – Guidebook

For some years now, the buzz around RC drones has been increasing. There are good reasons for this because it’s incredibly fun to explore the world with these small quadrocopters. If your drone also has a camera, you can also capture fascinating images. However, there are a few things to consider when buying your drone. For example, it is important that you pay attention to the weight of the drones because from 2 kilograms you need a drone license.

You can find out more about this and many other criteria for buying an RC drone in our checklist. Afterward, it’s worth taking a look at our product recommendations, where we have compiled the best RC drones for you.

Checklist For RC Drone

Weight
  • Drones with a weight of more than 250 grams are subject to mandatory marking. When buying, you should therefore pay attention to the weight.
  • From a weight of 250 grams you need a drone badge, which must be visible, fireproof and permanently attached.
  • From a weight of 2 kilograms, you must also have a drone driver’s license .
  • From a weight of 5 kil ograms, you even need an ascent permit, which is issued by the responsible state aviation authority.
  • So-called mini drones are therefore worthwhile for beginners. They are ideal for indoor flight.
Camera
  • The quality of the camera depends on the resolution, the frame rate and the so-called gimbal, which compensates for the drone’s own movements.
  • The resolution of the camera should be at least 720p, while you should pay attention to a value of at least 30 fps for the frame rate.
  • If you want to fly easily and spend little money, you should choose a drone without a camera.
Battery and Flight Time
  • The battery capacity determines the flight time. Here you should pay attention to the largest possible capacity in milliampere hours (mAh).
  • The larger the battery, the heavier the drone. Therefore, many manufacturers focus on a lower flight time.
  • A good battery has about 5000 mAh and, depending on the size and weight of the drone, provides a flight time of up to 30 minutes.
Range
  • As a beginner, a high range of the drones does not play a major role for you.
  • As an advanced user, you should pay attention to a range of at least 100 meters. Since there must basically be a direct line of sight , you don ‘t need a range that is too long.
Safety
  • An automatic take-off and landing function simplifies controlling the drone and supports you in maneuvering.
  • A return-to-home function ensures that your drone gets back to the starting point safely in case of a connection loss.
  • In addition, when the battery is low, the drone should land automatically.
Control
  • A controller is particularly suitable for controlling the drone. This has an integrated screen or a holder for the smartphone and makes flying easier.
