Hi, everyone! Are you going to buy a toy drone this holiday season? If you are, I have a plea: don’t buy crappy drones! And if you do, don’t fly them outside! If you walk into your local consumer electronics store like Fry’s Electronics, you’ll find rows of what I like to call “anonymous drones.”
These are drones from random Chinese companies that use standard
“drone on a chip” electronics with different shells, and most of them fly horribly. Many of the boxes advertise that the drones inside have cameras onboard, and some even have displays attached to their remote controllers, but almost all of them are terrible in the air.
A select list of good ones for your Holiday consideration from Mr. DJI himself, Eric Cheng.
