When buying a Remote Control Quadcopter you should take into consideration the accessibility of spare parts components. You will likely experience a crash to your Quadcopter specifically if you are merely a rookie to this hobby. Thus it is essential to know that the Quadcopter version you bought has lots of readily available spare components for sale. Some repair works require using a soldering kit so its a great idea to get one when you place your order. It is consistently recommended that you acquire extra batteries as the smaller Drone will only fly for around 8 minutes on one battery charge. Along with the countless Quadcopter Review sites there is also an abundance of wonderful videos on YouTube and youll find committed Facebook Pages that are an excellent source of information on the subject. Doing a comprehensive your study is recommended before acquiring a bigger and a lot pricier version.
So that may all sound pretty complicated but dont be scared because all that complicated stuff is handled in the flight control board. All you have to worry about it moving two sticks one way or another. So which quadcopter will help you get off the ground quickest? One of my all time favorite quadcopters for beginners is the Syma X1. It is very inexpensive and flies very well. It comes with a 2.4 GHz transmitter so you are able to fly outdoors and get pretty good range. Another good beginner quadcopter is the Blade mQX. This is a great little quadcopter as well and one nice thing is that it is compatible with other radios so you dont have to rely on the one it came with. Both are durable and will provide you with hours of fun flying time.
Next I needed to decide what the frame was going to look like. The size of the motors was determined by the size of the frame and the payload. In other words the size of the camera I wanted to use was a key factor to how strong the quad needed to be. What material to use for the frame? Carbon? Aluminum? Fiberglass? We always want to use the best at first but reality soon sets in. I watched the video of another quadcopter made out of wood that flew beautifully. Wood was inexpensive and strong enough to meet my needs and it only cost about $5! There are many ways to build the frame. It would take far too long to describe all the decisions I had to make. We need to get to the flying! In the end I decided that designing my own custom frame was the way to go. I wanted to be really proud of my quad.
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.
