Top 5 Drones (2016)

by Shekhar Manghnani on July 8th, 2016

Drones aren't a high tech thing used by paparazzi's or professional film crews anymore. A basic beginner's model can cost less than $100, with camera optimised drones starting at just a few hundred dollars. More complex drones starting at less than $1000 offer customisation and programming features that makes the whole thing autonomous, enabling the device to make decisions on its own. Drones have also become a thing for racing enthusiasts with new racing drones arriving at the scene. Here is a list of the top 5 drones that have caught my eye in 2016 so far.  

5. Yuneec Q500 4K Typhoon Drone

​A completion level of ready-to-fly (RTF) means this version of the Q500 4K Typhoon Drones with CGO3-GB Camera, SteadyGrip, and Camera Aluminum Case Camera and Aluminum Case from Yuneec comes factory-assembled and that a pre-bound transmitter/ground station unit (radio controller) is included. More than just an RC multi-rotor, the Q500 4K Typhoon is designed for APV – aerial photography and video. To this end, it incorporates the CGO3-GB, a 3-axis gimbal-stabilized camera with 4K video recording, 1080p video recording at up to 120 fps, and shoots photos at 12-megapixels.
