Hello, I’m Tim or “Turtle“. I have been fascinated by radio-controlled planes, and helicopters. The emerging market is now flooded with drones, and I am equally fascinated by them. I have never had any of them at all in my life as the price is high to obtain one. I thought why not help people find their perfect drone?
Finding A Drone
While searching all over the internet looking for a drone I liked and will do what I want to do with it, I found myself getting more confused. I broke it down into steps so that I can organize my thoughts and plans with the drone.
Decide what will the drone be mainly used for? recreation, photography, filming weather patterns, etc.
This decision can be complicated or as simple as possible it’s all up to you. As I went through this first step I realized why I want a drone and what I will use it for. In my case it is for filming vacation times, while I go hiking on trails, etc. This lead me to the next issue I wanted to learn about before I purchased my first drone. While I wanted it for specific reasons or not I needed to learn how hard it would be to find a drone that would be a good fit for me.
Buying a drone can be very confusing in my opinion, one because there are so many, and because they all have different abilities. Understanding the hardware like what type of camera it has and if it is stabilized or not, or the frame rate of the camera. There are many other attributes of each drone to be aware of. The height at which it can go safely is one important factor to find out. Other factors like battery life, blade replacement, are all factors to be aware of when buying your first drone. That will lead to finding a price range that you are comfortable with.
Maintaining Your Drone
Having a drone and knowing how to take care of it is another ball game. We spend a large amount of money on something we take care of it. Drones have their own maintenance that could result in either it operates or it crashes. Going out on a flight there are some items you may want to check out before you get going. Look over the entire drone for any issues like a crack or dirt in the camera The blade are another area of concern before and after each flight. This check should be almost automatic for one reason, The drone is usually or should be packed into a carrier of some kind. That means the blades are all ready disconnected from the drone itself anyway. While attaching the blades, inspect them for cracks or bends. I think we all can agree that we would make sure that the battery is ready to go. I personally would think, that either after of before each flight session a search over the entire drone would become habit.
often times while you are out with your drone and you see a broken blade or a small crack in the blade. This type of thing happens to everyone. This brings us to finding replacement blades. Fortunately each drone comes with an owner’s manual of some sort. The blade specifications are more than likely listed in there. Once that information is obtained you can now go search for your specific blade. Soon, your are back in flight!!!
