10 Best Drones In 2018

It's flight o'clock with new bleeding edge drones

Imagem de capa

The first serious drone I’ve ever tried was DJI Phantom 3, and back then it was really something. And that was 2015. Let’s see what do we have in store 3 years later. I’ve done a research and picked 10 best drones available in 2018.

TAKE OUT PRIVATE INSURANCE on the product. If you ever need customer service from DJI, you're screwed.

The drone itself is awesome when it works properly, but you better hope that if you DO have any technical issues, it happens while Amazon will still cover you. DJI's customer service will be their downfall. Even if you PURCHASE their DJI24 Care insurance plan, they'll deny their obligations and flat out lie to you. Do a little online research on DJI as a company, not just as a drone developer, and you'll quickly discover that I'm not just one disgruntled, whining customer who woke up this morning wanting to bitch about something. Good luck.

I love this drone!

I am amazed at the quality of this drone. The camera, gimbal, intelligent flight modes, batter life, transmitter screen is all most excellent. I'm very glad I bought the 4 Pro + screen is far superior to using a cell phone and well worth the extra money.

If I had one complaint, it would be the rubber plug that covers the charging port in the transmitter. It seems inevitable that it is torn off by the friction of placing the drone back in the styrofoam case. The point of attachment is flimsy at best. Once torn off, I just know I'm going to end up losing it.

That said, it's a great product and well worth the money. Go big or go home.

Best of the DJI series!

Love it!!! I will start out by saying that the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is my first Drone I have bought and flown. This drone pretty much flys itself! I love the sonar system this drone has! You literally can no crash it into anything! ... I’ve tested it over and over again. Lol. Every time I am out flying, I have people coming up to me watching me fly. The camera works amazing! I won an award on a community site for best picture. This package literally comes with everything you need! I highly recommend this drone to first time and experienced pilots!

Good drone for beginner-intemediate

The shipping was fast and the pacage was very good. The drone itself is exactly what we expected. We very fast got the idea how to use the mobile phone and after few minutes of downloading the app and training we could go outside and enjoy the drone. The camera is very high quality, we loved the video. Don't try to captur at night - it needs day light.
The only bas side is that one of the batteries did not work (the package contain 2 batteries).

It is a lot of fun and takes great pictures and video

It is a lot of fun and takes great pictures and video. Good idea to begin flying in large open area with no trees such as a football field.

Great Package!!

An awesome bird!! This is a great package, the only thing I would add is two more batteries at a minimum. I purchased 4 extra batteries, so I have 3 sets. I also purchased a set of polar pro Nd/Cpl (neutral density & circular polarizer) they work very well. Enjoy!!

Great Package!

I learned to fly a quadcopter on a small toy my wife gave me a few years ago. Decided to start a business that involves a drone and after all my research decided to go with the Inspire 2 rather than the Phantom b/c I wanted to be able to upgrade the camera at some point. This was a great bundle! It sat in my house for 4 days before I felt comfortable flying it. It's great! I'm still learning all the ins and outs of the the DJI software. The only thing that would be better in this bundle is (4) batteries (Inspire 2 takes 2 at a time) and a hard plastic travel case. The case is a 'hard' foam case, but I would never feel comfortable checking that on an airline.

Unless more than 4k is really needed!

The starter pack this drone enthusiast chose, still has the onboard camera, comes with the X4S 360 camera and not the ProRes and cinema DNG, yet t still yields very close to the same.

Good starter drone

Good gift and a great drone to get your feet wet before diving-in and purchasing something a lot more expensive. The goggles are great, they allow the user to feel like they're actually in the pilot seat of the drone. Be cautious tho, can induce motion sickness. The goggles can also be used without the drone as VR goggles.

The drone requires you to recharge the battery through a port, which renders the drone useless while waiting for the battery to charge. You definitely would want to purchase the separate charger and spare batteries. I believe it takes 1.5 hours to recharge the battery and flying time is about 10 minutes.

This drone, for being on the simpler side of drones, is freaking awesome! The automated take off and landing buttons help a ton and it’s fairly easy to use right from your phone with the inflight mini app! Such a cool buy

Think twice before purchasing.

I am so disappointed in this expensive purchase and Parrot's support, I wish I could rank this product with negative stars.

After reading the manual and setting up, the drone was launched from our half acre of grass front lawn. At first all seemed great as it took off easily and moved right into loitering above us. However several times I encountered a "drone disconnected" message on screen even though the drone was only a few houses down.

Finally it ended in a crash as we noticed a piece of the right wing come off. First a drone disconnected message came on screen and it came down three houses away in a strange spiral. It crashed hard into many pieces. That was not in the manual.

After calling Parrot support I am told that my story does not match the "flight data" and that they reviewed my property and the 1/2 acre of grass front lawn is inadequate to launch and land the drone ( not that it actually landed where we were ). So for $1,300 we got about twenty minutes of drone flying.

Easy to get up and Flying

Well packaged, delivered ahead of schedule. All components included as expected. Very easy to assemble and operate if you follow the instructions in the Users Manual. Do not expect to just open the box and fly. Know the FAA rules - This drone will have to be registered with the FAA. Don't fly it near an airport. This aircraft is easy to fly and has automated features that make launching and landing very simple. The First-person goggles provide a very unique "cockpit" view which makes it fun to fly, but if using the goggles, make sure you fly with a spotter or visual observer that can see where the aircraft is going. I also own a Parrot Bebop drone and the controller and FPV goggles are compatible with this system.

Hard to master. Very fun when mastered. Overall-amazing.

I don't usually review but I think this product is being reviewed badly and I think its not fair. I love this drone, it is by far the most fun I've had in flying drones. I think the people who had problems didn't really do things correctly. But this drone is actually hard to fly. It's not your usual drone quadcopter. But overall, if you get a hang of it you'll surely enjoy it. I've had a ton of crashes with this drone but amazingly it still works superb. I just wish there are wheels for landing :)

for the record I bought this at $499 and because I loved it I bought another one for $399. So, I feel its worth it. This might've been a different review if I bought this for $1000+.
