The two main competitors are Parrot who have now released the 2.0 version of their AR Drone for amateurs and DJI Phantom which priced at over $1000 is for the more serious players in the drone arena. The AR Drone is priced at about $300 and up depending on whether you opt to go for any extra features such as GPS based auto-pilot an extra battery or extra memory in the form of a USB plug-in stick. This makes it more affordable and it would not surprise me if it becomes one of the top Christmas gifts this year!
The drone operators monitor the captured images and try to identify the signs for illegal killing activities unregistered vehicles on animal tracks wired fences cut and other suspicious movements. With so much promised the use of drones in stopping the killers of the wild is in its nascent stage. It is an effort to initiate improvements so that the massacre of wild animals can be put to a stop. But the concept is definitely worth a consideration.
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.
A DJI Phantom 3 review would not be complete without mention of intuitive controls and stability during flight. The DJI Phantom 3 drone has a lot going for it. Firstly the mobile device holder for the phone or tablet to control the unit is included with the initial purchase. As advertised this model handles fabulously hovers perfectly and delivers some spectacular 4K UHD footage. The 720p live stream from the camera to the device was clear and very helpful in controlling the 3-axis camera. All together this drone delivered some really impressive results in the air.
