Maybe you have a drone you like to fly outside and have thought, wouldn’t it be awesome if I could fly this in my house? Well, with the best indoor drones, now you can. There are a lot of things to think about before flying a drone indoors. We researched some top sellers and best known brands to help you find the right one. Before we get started with our indoor drone reviews, let’s take a look at some key features.
Range: This is how far your drone can fly from the remote. You should really consider this is you’re hoping to use you drone both indoors and out. Why? You definitely need more distance when you’re flying outside.
WiFi: You don’t need WiFi to have an awesome drone. But drones that are equipped with WiFi have some really awesome extra features. If you want a drone that you can pair to your smartphone, make sure it has WiFi capabilities.
Size: We were really surprised by just how small some of these drones are, but it does make sense. Think about it: you don’t want something that’s too big if you’re going to be flying indoors near walls and furniture.
Flying Time: Flying time varies a little but it’s usually around 5 - 10 minutes. If you’re thinking that’s not much, you might want to consider getting a spare battery so you can swap them out when it’s time to recharge.
Charging Time: Speaking of recharging, this is the amount of time that the battery will take to get a full charge. Again, if you don’t want to wait that long, consider a second battery so you can still play while your wait.
Headless Mode: Some of our picks have this cool feature that helps with control. Instead of having to worry about the orientation of the drone, the drone can match up to the control. So, you’ll always know which direction to go.
