BEST ADVANCED Drones 2018


#10. DJI Inspire II

I know what you're thinking.  
DJI Inspire 2-Power Beyond Imagination.
How could the DJI Inspire II be number 10?

We all agree it arguably should be number one on this list, but the reason she isn't is for one reason only, PRICE.  A dream to fly, Looks soooo cool.  But this drone is beyond many of our price point and is for professionals.  This list however, is for the average income person who wants the best drone at the best affordable price.

The Yuneec Typhoon Q500 is a big drone.  If you want a drone that looks cool and turns heads.  This it is!  About 16.5 inches long and stands over 8 inches tall, and weighs just under 4 pounds with the battery and camera attached.  
I like that its camera is removable, and can be used handheld with an included accessory grip. It’s remote control incorporates a touch-screen Android system into its design, so you don't have to use smart phone. It also has a follow me mode.

It takes nice video, but not as well as the DJI Phantom.  It’s a great drone and looks so cool, the controller is super cool too with many features; however, compared to DJI Phantom, for the price, it ranks number 9 on our list.

Details:

  • 12 Megapixel Full HD 1080p 60FPS camera and outstanding 3-axes image stabilization
  • 1080P 60FPS HD Video Camera, 3-Axis Gimbal and Personal Ground Station. Extra Battery & Extra Rotors Included.
  • Records videos in an immersive 130° field of view with remarkable image quality
  • A real-time feed from your Q500's camera is displayed on the ST10 Personal Ground Station giving you a perfect view of what the camera sees to frame your shots.
  • Extra-long flight times of up to 25 minutes from the intelligent 5,200-mAh battery (2 included in box)

    My Thoughts:
    The Phantom 4 is certainly the best DJI quadcopter I’ve ever flown.  It's nimble , quick and well balanced.  The photo’s and video are amazing.  It shoots 4K video and takes 12MP photo stills.  The new gimbal design takes noticeably smoother videos.
    DJI Phantom 4 Pro-Unparalleled Portable Imaging.

    The Phantom 4 also has downward-facing cameras with sonar sensors to enable its Visual Positioning System. This allows the drone to know where it is without a GPS. (The Phantom 3 has this feature too.)

    It’s new features make it easier to fly and harder to crash because it has two optical cameras on the nose that sense and avoid objects in its path.  It has quick release props, better more simplified controls, impressive camera upgrades, and new intelligent flying modes and obstacle avoidance and ActiveTrak that keeps the camera focused on a specific target.

    It’s a crazy stable flyer and the camera is fantastic! It’s also a lot of fun too.  If you enjoy taking aerial video and want the best, this is it!

    Details:
    • 28 minute maximum flight time, maximum control range of 3.1mi (5km).
    • Maximum speed of 44mph (72kmh).
    • 4k UHD video recording with fully stabilized 3-axis gimbal; Vision Positioning system allows stable flight indoors
    • Lightbridge digital streaming allows live viewing of 720p video (full resolution video is simultaneously recorded on the internal microSD card)
    • Included flight battery and rechargable remote controller means this system is ready to fly out of the box

    #1. DJI Mavic Pro

    My Thoughts:

    DJI Mavic Pro-Fly For Miles, From Your Pocket.Portability! The Mavic folds down into a small package that’s the size of a brick and has a compact controller that looks so cool too.

    Has a 4K camera with 12.7 megapixel stills and super compact 3-axis gimbal that allows it to capture super stabilized video with ActiveTrack and Optical Flow software, which allow it to track objects and sense obstacles by its camera and image analysis algorithms.   The camera shoots at 79 degrees which is narrower than the Phantom 4’s, 94 degrees.  

    Mavic's speed peaks at 40 miles per hour and provides 25 minutes of flight time.   DJI equipped the Mavic with an all-new video transmission system called OcuSync, which stretches the its maximum range up to 4 miles and boosts resistance to interference. At shorter ranges, it can stream footage at 1080p resolution.

    My opinion, this is the best drone for the best price!  Super portable, light weight, easy to fly, quick to set up, incredible video and pictures, amazing range and on and on and on.  This is the best drone and I'm sure everyone who owns this drone will agree.

    Details:
    • The DJI Mavic Pro folds down as small as a bottle of water, making it small enough to bring with you everywhere.
    • New OcuSync transmission system offers up to 4.3 miles (7km) of transmission range. Fly at up to 40mph (64kmh) or for as long as 27-minutes.
    • ActiveTrack, TapFly and other smart features make professional looking video effortless. True 4K, fully stabilized ensures smooth footage
    • Obstacle Avoidance combined with sensor redundancy increases flight safety and reliability.
    • Vision positioning paired with GPS and GLONASS ensures precise positioning indoor and outdoors. Click the banner to go to DJI's website - DJI Mavic Pro-Fly For Miles, From Your Pocket.
