Probably the best selling drone company hands down is DJI. DJI offers many different models of drones on the market, some for professional other for beginners. Two of their top selling drones are the Inspire 1 and the DJI Phantom 2. Choosing between either of these drones can be harder than you think. Here are a few basic components and important things to remember for both drone models:
DJI Inspire 1
The DJI Inspire 1 is considered to be one of the top professional drones available to the public. The DJI Inspire 1 has a 4K HD video camera that can shoot 12-megapixel photos built in with a professional gimbal. So there is no need to buy a GoPro or trying to attach your DSLR. The DJI Inspire 1 is considered to be on of the strongest drones on the market because of its strong carbon fiber body.
The only downfall to the DJI Inspire is that it is a drone built for professionals. DroneFly.com has the drone priced at $2,899USD, which includes the camera, gimbal and remote.
DJI Phantom 2
The DJI Phantom 2 is one of the best selling drones worldwide. This drone is capable of flying by its self and landing safely back home all thanks to GPS. It records amazing videos and takes fabulous images from 1,000 feet in the air, and features a GPS for finding its way back to the launch pad. This means you don’t have to freak out if you lose your remote control connection.
Celebrated for its streamlined system and better flight software, the DJI Phantom 2 also includes a removable battery for charging. The Phantom 2 can be mounted with a camera for Live-streaming video over a Wi-Fi link to your iOS, or you can mount any GoPro model to the drone. DroneFly.com has this drone starting at $699USD for the base model but if you are looking to get this drone with all the bells and whistle the drone is priced at $1,299USD
