The Military has Drones & so should you!

Military Class Drone

Yes if you are wondering if I have gown nuts, you are probably partially correct in making such an assumption. But on the matter of owning your own drone it not only likely but it's quite possible.

With drones our approach to owning a remote controlled flying behemoth that can give you a birds eye view on things while you are perched safely on the ground having total control is quite possible. Now note I am not actually talking about a military class drone, but less aggressive models that can be owned and use for your personal fun, enjoyment or useful tasks.

When I say fun and enjoyment note that these devices are not simply kids toys but sophisticated devices that only differ from there military counterparts in there range,do not run on fuel,lack of a explosive payload and are a few million dollars cheaper.

What are drones? if you do not know by now.

 Drones are basically unmanned atrial or flying vehicles that are often called UAV's that are controlled by a person on the ground.

How are Drones actually Used?

Drones are becoming the new toys of the future and are even being used by the likes of the military. Once considered to be toys, drones are revolutionizing the way we look and the battlefield, surveillance and delivery of goods and services to customers with companies such as Amazon looking into employing these devices to deliver their shipments.

The possibilities are endless and we are only just now figuring creative uses for these capable flying bundle of joys and if you are the hobbyist collecting and flying one of these bad boys can be the ultimate rush.

Top Five (5) Drone Models:

1. UDI U818A 2.4GHz 4 CH 6 Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter with CameraRTF Mode 2

UDI U818A Quadcopter with Camera
Quite the affordable unit and a nice entry level device into the world of drones. The UDI U818A quadcopter has a functional range of up to 30 m from the remote and a 6 Axis gyro for precision control and maneuverability.

There is a built in video cam for recording video on command that can be retrieved later on and transferred to a personal computer. It's also quite durable so no need to worry about it easily and prematurely breaking on you.

The standard remote in comfortable to the grip and well made. For the affordable price you will receive quite the little aircraft.

2. DJI Phantom Aerial UAV Drone Quadcopter for GoPro

DJI Phantom Aerial UAV Drone
The Phantom Aerial UAV is only bested by the Phantom 2 that featured below in terms of build quality and ease of control. Affix a compatible Gopro cam and you are good to go for recording your outdoor activity from this beauty.

Out of the box the Pantom is ready to fly and dominate your skies. Need some arial footage for your YouTube video or big movie production this is the drone to own. This drone would have been voted the best and was not given the title simply because version two (2) surpassed the original.

3. DJI Phantom 2 Vision Quadcopter with Integrated FPVCamcorder (White)

DJI Phantom 2-Way too cool
When we speak of the Phantom 2 Arial UAV you can tell by it's beauty that this is a premium device with nothing but the best features, as only the best is good enough for the successor to the famous original Phantom.

This drone is too crazy and is the epitome of cool  and is only for the very serious enthusiast who want the very best that the market has to offer.

The features include:
-A beautiful full featured 14 Megapixel camera that shoots in beautiful 1080p HD quality with WiFi streaming of video content.
-Android and IOS App support (Drool!!!)
- Fly for a full 25 minutes without needing to recharge on the default battery.
-More bells and whistle in features than any other drone in its class.

If this is your first RC drone fret not as it intuitive controls will have you moving from unboxing straight into controlling  this thing like a pro, it's that good and best of all unlike most device it lives up to the hype. Talking about tooting your own horn and having the stones to back it up (lol).

4. Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition Quadricopter

Parrot AR.Drone 2.0
This great device can also be controlled similar to the Phantom 2 with a Android or iPhone app that can be downloaded unto your existing smartphone and support 720p HD recording and streaming of video. For best performance be sure to grab an extra high capacity battery to enjoy longer hours of flight as the default battery option drains way too fast. Despite it's few shortcomings the Parrot AR drone is quite agile and capable device that will provide you with days of outdoor fun, just not on a single charge.

5. The New Hubsan X4 H107L Improved Version

Hubsan X4 H107L 
The Hubsan X4 is literally the runt of the litter of these marvelous drones, but by no means should you underestimate it because of it's attractive price, simple looks and bland color scheme. This device is capable, durable and built to perform.

This X4 is light and has a four pronged gyro as can be seen and the best thing about this device is that it's perfect for newbies that are new to the world of drones, sort of a easy way to acclimatize you to the in and outs, just before diving in with something as cool as a Phantom 2.
This thing is a excellent flier and is capable of quite the speeds due to it's lightweight design and can go to quite the heights. And don't worry about crashing this thing as the LED notification will prevent such a situation before battery depletion.
