In case you were living under a rock for the past year or so, I have very big news for you – drones are among the most popular tech gadgets nowadays and as such, they should not be taken lightly. If you are living in the States, there is a huge chance that a couple of people you know use drones on a relatively regular basis. If that is true, then I am sure that you considered buying one for yourself at least once… Or at least now, otherwise you wouldn’t be on this page! With the holiday season, just around the corner, many people are beginning to search for the ultimate drone for their beloved ones, and you can consider yourself rather lucky because of stumbling on this article. Why? Well, because it is going to make your life a lot easier by showing you the 2 most popular drones for sale in 2016. So, with this in mind, let’s jump straight to business and take a closer look at these two most popular models that are currently available on the market:
Yuneec Q500 4K Typhoon Quadcopter Drone
If you want to purchase a great premium drone with a top-notch camera then you cannot go wrong with Yuneec’s newest model. As you can see above, it is called Q500 and it sports a 4K camera capable of recording in true 4K resolution (not that upscale bs that we usually see with cheaper 4K action cameras) at 30 frames per second. In addition to this, it is able to capture slow motion full HD videos and is able to fly around for amazing 25 minutes ( same duration as DJi’s flagships). Combine this with the fact that this bad boy can go up to 600 meters without noticeable lag and you got yourself a great drone for a reasonable price. In addition to all those things mentioned above, it is also very important to add that this is an extremely durable drone that is able to provide great flying experience even to people who have never operated with a drone before. All things considered, it is quite clear that Yuneec did not mess around when making the Q500 because it excels in all segments.
Max range – up to 600 meters
Flight duration – 25 minutes
Price – $777
Traxxas Aton Quadcopter
This drone is meant for all those people who cannot decide whether they want a racing drone or just a casual one that can shoot nice pictures. Why is that so? Well, it is because Traxxas Aton is able to achieve lightning fast speed in its sports mode (after you take off its camera gimbal) and at the same time provide a great platform for aerial footage in its second flying mode. For just $300 you get a beautiful looking drone that can fly up to 20 minutes and reach up to 300 meters without lag. All in all, Traxxas Aton is a great mid-tier drone for people who want to both race and record videos / images with their new toy.
