UAV stands for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle and it covers all remotely controlled machines that are also known as quadcopters as well as aircraft used by the US air force. These machines are mainly used by military and police officers to carry out an operation where a manned aircraft seems impractical or too risky. Unmanned aircraft are not new; they have been in use since the World War I. However at that time the control was mechanical and the aircraft could only go as far as the fuel would allow. Later on devices that could be controlled with the help of radio or infra-red technology were developed. These devices became the predecessors of the modern quadcopter that employs integrated circuit or computer chips and can be programmed to fly for a definite time period in a definite direction fulfilling a definite purpose.
Ready-to-Fly are the most commonly used UAVs among general public hobbyists and entrepreneurs. As it is clear from the name these types of flying machines do not need much assembly as they come equipped with the required functionality and you only need to put in the batteries and you are good to go. These RTF vehicle are designed to provide the user with many basic and advanced features which are quite useful for a number of applications. The latest quadcopters come with a 12 MP camera for taking excellent quality aerial photos as well as record 4K video. They also offer live HD video streaming on your smartphone or any other hand-held device. The newest ones are associated with a mobile app to give you more control over its functionality as well as use a flight simulator for learning to fly. The flight times vary from model to model but a fairly good quality quadcopter provides up to 30 minutes of continuous flight time.
A GoPro quadcopter should have a reasonably long battery life to be able to last through aerial shots and to provide longer flights thus more footage. Getting an overly expensive model doesnt always mean better value for money. There are cheaper models that outdo some really expensive ones. The important thing is to look for features that fall within a reasonable price range. Choice should be largely influenced by price and the features that will suit ones need. A GoPro quadcopter that is way below the average price range isnt such a wise buy either. It should be compatible with the most recent GoPro models to enable easier mounting and to ensure protection of the camera. Compatibility reduces worry and the need to do any minor adjustments. It should have extra features like integrated GPS functions USB ports that are built in propellers to help in the prevention of crashes and effective distance control of up to 300 meters.
