Best quadrocopters 2019: options for a different budget

Quadcopters fell in love with a wide audience for two reasons. They offer a fully manned flight, and in addition are designed for photo and video shooting. 2019 is the perfect time to buy an amateur drone with a camera.

Models with advanced specifications are becoming more accessible. Having studied the quadrocopter market, you can easily find a device suitable for specific tasks, whether it is high-quality 4K shooting or compatibility with video glasses. If you discovered this material for this purpose, we are ready to present you the best unmanned vehicles available in Russian stores.


DJI Mavic 2 enterprise

Price: 149 990 rubles

This is the most compact professional drone. It successfully replaces popular “phantoms” in the past. This device is capable of flying over very long distances - the connection does not break even if the quadrocopter is four to five kilometers from the remote control. The flight duration is 31 minutes - this is the maximum that relatively small drones equipped with a huge number of electronic components are capable of.

In its characteristics, Enterprise is almost identical to the “firmware”, which we will also mention. The difference is in supporting a variety of accessories that make the flight safer and more useful. For example, the owner of a drone can acquire a powerful flashlight that will allow people to search for people at night. Also, one can not do without such an accessory when examining high-rise structures. DJI also offers to hang a loud microphone on the Mavic 2 Enterprise. It is intended for all the same search for people and warning a person that he has entered the forbidden territory.

Another important feature of this model is the ADS-B receiver. He receives radio communications from aircraft, warning them in time. It is possible that in the future all amateur DJI quadrocopters capable of flying to great heights will begin to be equipped with such a receiver.

The only tangible drawback of Enterprise, if we forget about the price, is the inability to change the camera or at least the lens. That is why much larger drones continue to be used to shoot advertisements, films and music videos.

Hubsan zino pro

Price: 23 000 rubles

At the time of writing, this quadrocopter has not yet gone on sale. But it can already be pre-ordered. And this must be done, because the characteristics of the Hubsan Zino Pro can not fail to amaze!

The creators of this device focused on DJI products, trying to achieve similar capabilities at a lower price. For example, they managed to achieve a flight time of 23 minutes. They also supplied their creation with a signal receiver at a frequency of 5 GHz, as a result of which the drone is stably controlled even at a distance of 3-4 km. And not just managed, you will continue to see everything that falls into the camera lens.

It was because of the camera that the cost of the Hubsan Zino Pro quadcopter turned out to be far from penny. She knows how to shoot video in 4K resolution, the frequency will be 30 frames per second. For shooting, a 1/3 inch matrix is ​​used here. The picture will be as smooth as possible, since the camera is located on a three-axis suspension.

Positioning accuracy is very high, as the navigation chip is supplemented with support for receiving signals from GLONASS satellites. When landing, the drone additionally “considers” the surface with optical sensors.

There are several questions for the creators of Hubsan Zino Pro that are not answered yet. For example, will a quadrocopter be able to fly around obstacles? Apparently, no, because there is not a single sensor in front, behind and on the sides of the drone. That is why the device is estimated at 30 thousand rubles, and not one and a half times more expensive. And how many smart modes will this drone get? Inexpensive devices of such a plan are famous for the fact that they do not want to normally fly behind the subject and make beautiful shots on their own. Maybe Hubsan Zino Pro will be an exception to the rule? You can verify this only after the start of sales.
