The last remaining one to two years we have witnessed a remarkable increase in demand for these ,in recent past, military “toys”. Market is flooded with the drones at affordable prices that offers a whole range of advanced functions and features packaged in an attractive design, with an intuitive user management systems.
In a bunch of drones who flood the market right now is a little hard to handle. Itself imposes upon us the question of how to choose a good drone, but without having to spend a sum of money sufficient to buy a square meter of apartement in New York. We are here to finding an answer to this question.
The below is a comparison table of the best drones under 200 $. This is our selection of the best drones that the average American can afford:
1. WLToys V686G
WLToys is a renowned producer which launched the best seller drone for a several times before. We are very satisfied with an excellent price/quality ratio, and we are especially pleased with their new model V686G.
V686G is one of the many drones that offer FPV (first person view) functionality. In practice FPV is the ability for a live monitoring on the remote control what drone camera captures. The truth is that this functionality works surprisingly well on drone in this price range. You almost can not feel the lag in the open spaces.
V686G comes with a built-in camera 2MP resolution. With a given price the better can not be obtained. Thanks to the rechargeable battery capacity 780mAh, V686G can fly 6-8 minutes, depending on the speed of flying, wind, altitude and the like.
The remote control comes with a built-in screen where you can monitor what the camera captures and vital data such as altitude, speed, battery status and the like.
2. JJRC H8D
We are getting to a little more expensive, but also more advanced device. JJRC H8D also comes with a built-in camera whose image you can follow live on the screen built on the steering wheel. Like the V686G this drone will offer about 8 minutes flying and battery charging will take 90 minutes.
What makes this drone better than its predecessor are its advanced options like “one key return” (button to return to the place of takeoff) and “headless mode”. Headless mode is ideal for beginners, but the point is that the drone move in the direction in which you move the control stick no matter where the drone facing. To put it simply, if this option will be unavailable, and if the drone was facing towards you, what you would get by moving the control stick to the left? Drone would be moved to the right! When the headless mode is turned on, you do not have to worry about it, drone goes where you point it, regardless of its current position.
To mention is also that the JJRC H8D equipped with multicolored LED lights that will make night flying special experience. The range of this device is 100 to 150 meters.
3. Parrot Rolling Spider
In front of us is a Parrot Rolling Spider – tiny flying drone weighing not more than 55 grams, which will be controlled by your smartphone and is able to perform various stunts. Additional wheels-protectors that can hook up to it are used to drone strikes and not to damage the drone or something that could snap inside your home but also to be able to do tricks like climbing the walls or “walking” on the ceiling.
Rolling Spider is a smaller and cheaper version of a hit drone model Parrot AR Drone which was presented before five years and who continues to be a very attractive and powerful toy.
You control this drone via smartphone application. Tricks which Parrot Rolling Spider can perform, in addition to the above mentioned wall climbing and on different surfaces inside your home, also are turning around all axes and a full circle (each of them is special and very interesting maneuver) as many more expensive drones can not perform . This tiny drone is safe for children because it is lightweight and management software has the advanced mode (which is also simple) as well as automatic modes, which further simplifies use.
Any hit to an obstacle will shut down all engines which means that the Rolling Spider fall to the floor which was not so bad because the device is quite robust for its weight of only 55 grams. The device itself has a camera that is not designed to record, but can make photos.
Battery lasts up to 8 min (6 min with wheels), a full charging cycle lasts 90 minutes.
