Flying drones is such an awesome hobby and racing them is even more fun. If you’re thinking about taking your drone flying to the next level, consider a new kind of drone. If you’re looking for the best RTF racing drones, look no further! We researched some of the top brands and best-rated DRL drones for sale to put together this review. Before we get to it, let’s take a look at some of the top features you need to know.
Range - The range is how far the drone can fly from the control. It’s pretty important because if your drone goes out of range, you won’t be able to control it anymore. And you definitely don’t want that.
WiFi - This is one place where racing style drones differ from other drones. While other drones use WiFi to connect to your smartphone, take photos, or even use it as a remote, none of the racing drones we reviewed have WiFi.
Size - The thing that is the most inconsistent about the drones we reviewed is the size. The range is so wide! Some of them are quite large while others are about half the size. Get whatever size makes you happy.
Flying Time - This varies a little between each drone, too, ranging anywhere from 5 to 12 minutes. There is one outlier that we have to point out - it has a really impressive flying time of 18 minutes!
Charging Time - Drones typically take a pretty long time to charge. These ones range from 30 to 90 minutes. Again, we have to point out that the drone that flies the longest has the longest charging time - 240 minutes.
Headless Mode - This is a feature that lets the pilot control the drone without having to worry about which way the drone is facing. Instead, the drone will orient itself to the remote which makes it easy to steer.
