1. Safety First

When you select a drone, you'll want to keep safety in mind when you fly.  Anyone can get hurt, even from a toy drone. 

In order to protect yourself and others, you might want to consider drones that have propeller guards. This category is commonly called "ducted" drones. Even with this protection in mind, it's still important to be mindful while flying a drone. 

Ducted drones are best suited for children and indoor use to maximize safety.  

Drones without shields, commonly referred to as "Open prop" are great for wide-open outdoor spaces.

2. Piloting Options

When shopping for drones, some might want to race or freestyle their drone. If that's you, then you'll want to consider first-person-view headsets.

This will allow you to see through the lens while flying the drone. This is a popular type of drone since it allows you to feel as if you're in the pilot seat. 

One form of first-person viewing (FPV) is through your mobile phone. Your phone will be attached to the drone controller in order to allow this. Keep in mind that this form of communication might not be as strong as using FPV goggles, that is usually associated with a more advanced drone configuration. 

3. Other tips

While batteries can be expensive, it is a good idea to buy extra batteries for your drone. This will allow you to fly longer, as the average flight time per battery is about five minutes.

If you're considering a drone with a camera, there many options starting as low as $40! 

Before taking videos or pictures, you'll need to abide by the different rules and regulations in your area. You may also need to register your drone depending on its weight.
