Drones – Which Do I Choose?
Superfantastic! You have downloaded a simulator and started practicing. The only problem is now hands on an actual racing drone. I myself cannot handle a really fast drone at this point. I am sure that with practice I will eventually be able to fly any drone at any level. Finding a Racing drone that is in your budget or if money is not an issue there are many to choose from. Something to remember with racing drones, they do not have abilities of other drones. Yes, they have a camera, However it I=does not operate for to some reason as to camera on a Phantom for example. Features like, follow me, circle me, etc are not usually on to racing drones flight control board. This is because of one reason. All but a tiny bit of energy is used to power to motors for speed. NASCAR is very similar with reducing weight for maximum speed.
