Lets talk about the two most common methods to get into the quadcopter fad. Initially we will cover the popular micro or toy grade models and then we will discuss possible upgrade models like the DJI Phantom and other popular hobby class quadcopters and drones. Another way to discover quad flight is to acquire a micro quad. These are little quads that look and act the same method that larger quads do. They are actually amazing little machines. The benefit of discovering with a micro quad is that they have such low mass therefore little power driving their small propellers that they are really unlikely to cause any damage when you smack them into something.
Beyond micro quads there is a lot of space to grow in terms of cost and abilities however lets focus on the next logical step. The DJI Phantom is a very popular quad that is capable of carrying a GoPro cam. If you select to buy a Phantom I believe you will concur that it is considerably simpler to fly than a micro quad. Ive discovered the Phantoms stabilization and position-holding capability to be rock solid. I can park it in the sky and take my hands off of the joysticks. Even if there is a light breeze the Phantom will remain in location until I regulate it to go elsewhere.
However the DJI Phantom comes with GPS capability and a return home feature built in. Apart from the price difference between these two drones the way they are controlled is the next largest difference. Parrot with help from French researchers have created quite an intuitive app for iOS and Android called Parrot Freeflight. The AR Parrot 2.0 drone basically acts as a WiFi hotspot which connects to your smartphone or tablet and this allows it to stream HD video directly to your device.
And for Petes sake switch off the ceiling fan! Besides working out those precautions there is little to fret about. As your piloting abilities development you can challenge yourself to increasingly uphill struggles. You might begin out simply attempting to arrive on the coffee table. In time youll be dusting your ceramic frog collection with the micro quads rotor wash. Once you feel that you have the hang of quad flying its time to update to something capable of bring a high quality cam. It is worth mentioning that there are some micro quads with integrated video cameras.
