Fly­ing a kite with the whole fam­i­ly is, of course, inter­est­ing. But what if you launch a quadro­copter, which will also shoot video on the cam­era from a height? So you can get the impres­sion not only from con­trol­ling the drone, but also after immers­ing your­self in pleas­ant mem­o­ries. In addi­tion, some gad­gets make pro­fes­sion­al qual­i­ty videos.

The arti­cle will help you buy a drone that will not fall apart after the first flight. Here are the top 3 man­u­fac­tur­ers of such devices. Fea­tures of mod­els of top brands will help you decide which option is best suit­ed.


This man­u­fac­tur­er entered the top for a rea­son. Although the com­pa­ny is quite young — it was cre­at­ed in 2012 — since then it has not stopped devel­op­ing quadro­copters, releas­ing tru­ly cool mod­els.

The com­pa­ny has devel­oped not only a unique quadro­copter in terms of func­tion­al­i­ty and design, but is also a pio­neer in the devel­op­ment of unique under­wa­ter and sur­face drones, as well as indus­tri­al quadro­copters equipped with ther­mal cam­eras and mon­i­tor­ing sen­sors.

What inter­est­ing things can offer — 6 advan­tages of POWERVISION drones:

  1. Devices that record video and take pic­tures in 4K: gor­geous res­o­lu­tion, great detail, and also cool 360 ° panoram­ic shoot­ing — these are the main fea­tures of such mod­els.
  2. Quad­copters that can trans­mit HD video sig­nal with­in a radius of five kilo­me­ters.
  3. Mod­els with excel­lent posi­tion­ing: the drone can be launched or returned to the take-off point with just one touch.
  4. The devices of this brand are fast and have pow­er­ful bat­ter­ies — many are able to accel­er­ate to 13 m / s and fly for half an hour. To shoot a decent movie, this is enough.
  5. Most mod­els can be con­trolled by ges­tures, and also pause them: the drone will hov­er in the air. This opens up oppor­tu­ni­ties for sta­t­ic aer­i­al pho­tog­ra­phy.
  6. Some quadro­copters, such as Pow­erEgg, have an Orbit mode: the gad­get will fly around the tar­get cho­sen by its own­er, at a giv­en dis­tance and speed.


Since its incep­tion (and it was back in 2006), the com­pa­ny has devel­oped into one of the best brands that pro­duce drones. The com­pa­ny makes not only ama­teur quad­copters, but also top pro­fes­sion­al mod­els that are used for video film­ing or, for exam­ple, deliv­ery. The man­u­fac­tur­er also cre­ates drones for intel­li­gence ser­vices.

Inter­est­ing: In 2014, The Times list­ed DJI devices as one of the top ten most high-tech prod­ucts of the year. How­ev­er, they remain so today.

Main fea­tures:

  • Makes excel­lent ama­teur mod­els that sync with smart­phones. Shoot­ing on them is a plea­sure: high-qual­i­ty shots are obtained “on one or two”. For exam­ple, minia­ture gad­gets of the Spark series rec­og­nize objects and can fol­low them. This drone can be con­trolled with ges­tures.
  • Some mod­els do not need a smart­phone, which helps to save bat­tery pow­er of the mobile phone. For exam­ple, the MAVIC PRO comes with a hand­held remote con­trol. How­ev­er, this is not the main thing. Quad­copters of this series are able to rec­og­nize obsta­cles at a dis­tance of 15 meters. And their 12-megapix­el cam­eras take great pho­tos from above.
  • The com­pa­ny also cre­ates top mod­els for more pro­fes­sion­al aer­i­al pho­tog­ra­phy — drones of the Phan­tom line. For exam­ple, 4 PRO shoots 4K video at 60 fps, which pro­vides excel­lent sta­bi­liza­tion: the pic­ture will not shake. In addi­tion, such a device can be con­trolled at a dis­tance of sev­en kilo­me­ters, it can rec­og­nize up to 5 obsta­cles around it and has an excel­lent (20 megapix­el) cam­era.

This is anoth­er wor­thy com­pa­ny in the rank­ing that pro­duces quad­copters. It devel­ops spe­cial tech­nolo­gies that make shoot­ing bet­ter, wire­less trans­mis­sion bet­ter, and con­trol more con­ve­nient. Drones of this brand are rep­re­sent­ed by the Xplor­er line. These air­craft are com­pact and easy to fly, and they shoot well.

All these fea­tures make the man­u­fac­tur­er’s gad­gets ide­al for ama­teur pho­tog­ra­phy. Such a device will be a great gift for both adults and teenagers.

Each man­u­fac­tur­er that made it into this rat­ing makes top drones. All of them are per­fect­ly assem­bled, they look nice and, of course, they shoot excel­lent­ly. If you need an ama­teur option, then the mod­els from XIRO will be an excel­lent choice. They are beau­ti­ful and can fly for a quar­ter of an hour. Want to shoot pro­fes­sion­al­ly? Then it is bet­ter to choose quadro­copters that were cre­at­ed by DJI or POWERVISION engi­neers. 360-degree video shoot­ing in UHD and the pro­tec­tion of the drones them­selves from obsta­cles will def­i­nite­ly come in handy.
