Buyer's Guide

A Complete UAV Drone Buyers Guide

Are they something you've heard of? The FAA refers to them as "unmanned aerial systems," despite the fact that they can have any quantity of rotors and even be planes (UAS). Most people prefer the word "unmanned aerial vehicles'' (UAVs), which is neutral enough to encompass a wide range of devices, from tiny Hubsan nano drones to commercial or military aircraft weighing 100 lbs and roughly the size of little manned planes.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) aren't new. The popularity of small multi-rotor RC aircraft, such as a compact quadcopter with a gimbal-stabilized aerial camera, began to soar about 2013 in the toy and aerial imaging markets. It's a safe bet that RC fans will take issue with this. Since cameras became smaller and video transmitters became more affordable, pilots of RC (unmanned) aircraft have been flying them with FPV cameras for decades. If that's the case, the market has always been small and exclusive to model-builders (aside from the small number of professional users), to whom few outsiders paid a lot of attention or were aware at all.

Computer flight-control systems & multi-rotor technology, both of which were made possible by the first, were the major breakthroughs that put consumer or prosumer UAVs on a map. Traditional RC planes require a lot of talent to fly, and many of them end up costing a lot of money (you may have to remortgage your house to pay for some). Tiny gas engines, with some turbines and the capability of flying at speeds comparable to those of human pilots, power many of these drones. By virtue of the sophistication of their systems, multi-rotor UAVs, unlike helicopters, require a computer to govern the control input. There is no steering, no ailerons, and only propellers for control. The rotors can only be spun at different speeds to regulate flight, and this cannot be done manually. Additionally, when equipped with GPS, optical flow, or other guidance technologies, the aircraft may essentially take control of themselves. This indicates that everyone may fly; nevertheless, it's an unanswered question if anyone should fly at all..

It was expected that imaging would be one of the most popular uses for multi-rotors because of their ability to follow precise flight patterns and to hover in a fixed point (assuming GPS and optical flow). And, as fate would have it, HD & 4K cameras have shrunk in size and cost to the point that mounting one to a UAV is no longer a difficult decision.

Types of UAV Drones

Neither formal definitions nor interminable semantic arguments over proper language usage characterize us gear geeks. This is an approximate breakdown of the classes of camera-equipped and camera-carrying UAVs (excluding serious RC hobbyists):

Consumer

"Tech toy" and "beginning" hobby planes are both included in the "consumer" category here. They're little, with a maximum 350-size (**) or much smaller for quadruplets. There are a few cameras on the market, but they're mainly for displaying off to friends or flying FPV; they lack stability and are not suited for most devoted video or photography. They lack GPS and autonomy, but they do have "fun" features like one-button flips as well as the ability to "simply" accomplish other acrobatic maneuvers, which you can judge whether or not they are gimmicks.

Prosumer

Prosumer refers to the low end scale of the aircraft market, which includes quadcopters and a few hexa-rotors developed exclusively for filming and taking pictures. A 2- and 3-axis gimbal with an action camera, such as the GoPro HERO, are frequent implementations. Some people may be RC enthusiasts who want more than the entry-level camera can provide, and some may be photographers who are more interested in capturing beautiful photographs than in getting into the nitty-gritty of the hobby. If I had to pick a hobby vehicle, I'd avoid most of these since they are all multi-rotors, and multi-rotors have a history in the RC world of being relatively graceless—more concerned with providing VTOL or fixed camera views than with performance or skillful technical flying. Hobbyists, on the other hand, are free to tinker with quads and fly them for the sake of thrill.

Professional

Hexa-rotor and almost all octo-rotor drones will be included in professional UAVs. These are specifically made to carry cameras and other equipment. The maximum payload capacity of a professional UAV purchased from a retailer like B&H is roughly 25 pounds in stock configuration. Even the most demanding production needs can be met with this. A cinematic image can be captured with cameras in this weight range thanks to advancements in tiny, high-speed recording media like CFast and the shrinking of camera components.

Desirable Features for UAV Drones

Battery Cost and Flight Time

Long flying times are the most sought-after characteristics in a drone. The last thing you want is to be having fun using your drone and then have to put it away and charge it for an extended period of time. Beginner drones typically have a maximum flight time of 10 minutes, but more advanced models can fly for up to 30 minutes. Depending on the length of your trip, you may not be able to take full benefit of your range or do anything while it's in the distance. Consequently, your drone's limited flying time, also with extra batteries, reduces your enjoyment of it.

You'll want to keep a backup set of batteries on hand in case one goes out. The more expensive a drone is, the more expensive its battery will be as well. Battery capacity ultimately determines how long a flight can go assuming proper preparation has been made. Over an hour of charging a battery pales in comparison to having to fly it back in time and change it. So, while you’re evaluating flying time during the drone purchase process, factor how much the extra battery cost!

Range

Depending on your intended application for your drone, a long flight range may be essential. Beginner drones typically have ranges of 55 to 110 yards, while more advanced models can reach distances of 3 miles or more. Long range is necessary if you plan to use your drone in racing or high-quality videography. For a hobby drone, though, a lengthy range isn't necessary since you can walk behind your drone and follow it if necessary.

Camera

Almost every drone is equipped with a camera. If you wish to extend the flight time of your drone, you can turn off the camera. There's a good likelihood, however, that you'll want to experiment with aerial photography and video. Even if you don't plan to use your drone for anything other than taking photos and videos, the camera specifications may be your primary consideration when purchasing a drone.

Headless Mode

Drones with a headless mode feature make it easier for beginners to fly them. Your "head" or "front" is facing the other way from yours at this point, so you can begin by flying the drone in the opposite direction. In the next step, you reverse the direction of the plane and begin to fly it toward you. As a result, if you move your stick left, its drone will go to your right, and if you move it right, it will push to your left.

Because drones don't appear like airplanes, with a strictly delineated nose and tail, this can be a bit of a challenge. Quadcopters are the most common type of drone, and their front and back designs are nearly identical. In the absence of extensive practice, it is certain that you will become disoriented and end up in a collision. When in headless mode, moving the stick to the left of you will cause the drone to go to the left, up will cause it to move away from you, and etc. Flying will be a breeze with this setup. Get a drone with headless mode if you're just starting out with flying drones.

Return Home Button

Allows you to fly the drone back toward you by merely pressing a button. Obstacle avoidance will be more advanced in more expensive drones, as will the ability to return home. If your drone does not have GPS, pressing the button will cause it to fly backwards. To avoid this, fly your drone in headless mode so that it does not interpret "backwards" to mean many possible directions other than in your direction of travel.

Gimbal

By using gimbals, you may avoid having shaky or shakey-looking footage. Gimbals are a must-have for anyone who wants to capture smooth, level video footage from their drone, but they can be difficult to use for novices who aren't experienced enough pilots. Producing high quality videos requires the use of professional-grade gimbals.

Conclusion

The first thing you’ll want to do when choosing a drone is to decide what your budget is. You’re looking for something more affordable for recreational purposes.

Once you’ve decided what your budget is, you can narrow down your choice by asking yourself what you’re using the drone for. Are you looking to perform inspections, create cinematic videos, or just shoot a few cool drone selfies with your friends? Do you want something with a powerful camera, or are you looking for something that can give you both thermal and visual effects? Take a look above to see which one you like best.
