About Our Reviews
What’s the key to breaking through? We believe that the key to breaking through in any field is direct knowledge. Mainstreaming knowledge from others and from information sources online can teach you a mass amount of information in a short amount of time. That’s why we’ve created this page full of drone reviews. We’re simply supplying our knowledge to the mass and helping them learn the way we did when we first started.
What does a drone review consist of? Each review is broken down into several parts, each of them a major factor in helping you, the consumer, decide which drone you should buy. As we think more about the different ways a drone can be beneficial to each individual user, we can begin to construct a way for each review to be built.
We’re going to consider four different pillars when we think about drones: stability, price, flight, and video.
Stability: What makes a drone stable? I think when we think of stability we think of our ability to control motor movements, similar to the way the brain controls motor movement. When it comes to drones, we’re thinking of calibration. Each drone must be precisely calibrated to allow for optimal control. Some drones have no calibration abilities, and if they do, they’re pretty terrible. Each drone should be able to calibrate on its own in a perfect world, but, low and behold, we’re not in a perfect world.
Price: Price point is a huge concern for these drones. You can buy something for thirty bucks that will last you a couple of weeks and will inevitably cause you more frustration than joy, or you can buy something a little more sturdy and durable – but you have to know how to fly it! This is a serious issue when it comes to pilots these days. They think they can just hop behind the controls and expect to know how to fly a complicated machine. Well, let’s be honest, it’s not really possible.
Flight: This ties into the last point. The usability of each individual drone is important to its overall score in our drone reviews. Is it easy to fly? Is it hard to fly? Is it something that’s going to take you awhile to learn? Even the simplest devices take time to learn, but there’s a major learning curve between a quadcopter with camera like the DJI s900 and the Syma X1.
Video: Are you buying a drone to be a pilot or are you buying a drone to make awesome videos? Ask yourself this beforehand. Do you want to record your neighbor’s party, or fly over the ocean and catch the surfers as the sun is setting? If the answer is yes to either question, then you’re like us and we’re here to help you no matter what. We love sharing our wealth of knowledge regardless of who you are or what you do. Flying for video capability is lot easier said than done, so let us talk you through what you’ll really need; not just what you think you’ll need.
Drone reviews are helpful, but it ultimately comes down to what you think you want out of your drone. Our reviews are informative, but it’s your decisions. As always, don’t hesitate to ask!
