Frequently Asked Questions
Drones can be purchased from a number of online and local retailers. If you can find a local retailer with the drone you are interested in, we encourage you to start there. A local retailer such as a hobby shop can often provide you with some hands-on startup help and also assist with ordering replacement parts should the need arise. If you want a great variety and feel comfortable making an independent decision, then online retailers such as Amazon, eBay, and Bangood are great places to start.
The answer to this question depends several factors including your skill level, your intended use for the drone, and how much money you are willing to spend. If you have never flown a drone before and you just want to give it a try, you should probably look for a small, non-camera drone in the $30-$50 range. Check out Amazon or another major retailer and pick up one of the top rated drones in the price range above. Have fun with the drone. You are going to have a few crashes, but you are also going to become a much better drone operator. If you are more interested in using drones for photography you will need to consider investing in a more expensive system. These drones are much easier to fly (though the technology can get a little complicated) and are designed to be very stable during flight. You should plan on spending $500-$1000 for a decent camera drone.
