If you’re looking for an awesome hobby or a way to take amazing aerial photographs and videos, finding the best large drones is key. There are so many out there, though, you might find it a little overwhelming. That’s why we put in the time and did the research to put together this large drone buying guide. Before we get to our top products, let’s take a look at some of the important features you need to consider when shopping.
Range - How far a drone is capable of flying is an important thing to keep in mind. The range is pretty wide, too, with our top picks being able to go anywhere from 98 to 1640 feet.
WiFi - WiFi isn’t necessary for an awesome drone, but it does let you do some really cool things with your drone’s camera, assuming it has one. Get real-time first person view images sent right to your phone.
Size - These are large drones so don’t expect to be able to fold them up and put them in your pocket! They actually vary in size quite a bit so make sure you take a close look at the dimensions we’ve provided.
Flying Time - Again, this varies from drone to drone. Most can fly for around 9 or 10 minutes but you will find a couple that can stay in the air for up to 20 minutes at a time!
Charging Time - While some of these take quite a while to charge, others will be ready in about an hour. That said, keep in mind that you might need a little longer the first time you charge it.
Headless Mode - This is a way to steer the drone without having to worry about which side is the front. Basically, you don’t have to orient yourself to the drone. Headless mode orients the drone to you.
Now that you know a little more about the important features to look for when shopping, let’s fly right into our large drone reviews. Here’s how it works. We put our top and budget picks right at the top of the list. If you’re running short on time, those 2 are the best ones to start with. Keep reading to learn more about the other awesome products rounding out our list. They’re all pretty great. Alright, ready? Let’s go!
