Things to Know Before You Buy a Drone

Drones are an amazing piece of technology that help you see the world from a whole new perspective. But there is a lot more to them than meets the eye. Considering what you are expecting to achieve with your drone will help you choose the right one, and purchasing second-hand from Gumtree will help you get better bang for your buck.

Here are a few things to know before you purchase:

  1. Start by selecting a goal. What are you looking to achieve?
  2. Are you looking to do some cinematography? If this is the case, you must look for ones that are specifically designed for photography or videography as they will be more stable and able to lift heavier loads. You will also want to consider one with a longer battery life.
  3. If your goal is to race, look for a drone with high speed and a more streamlined design. Additionally, you will want one with a long battery life, a far range, and sensitivity of the handling.
  4. If you are wanting to take photographs with a birds-eye view, look for a drone that has the functionality to carry its own camera. Some drones come with cameras built in, but for this type of photography, that is not the one you will want to go for.
  5. If you simply want a drone to have a little fun with, a hobby drone should do the trick. These are the easiest to fly and are far more inexpensive!
  6. Don’t forget to look into the rules of flying before you head out. There are different laws and regulations about how far or high you can fly drones depending on which area you live in, so be sure to do your research to avoid getting into legal trouble.

Now that you’ve got the knowledge, it’s time to shop! Head to or your Gumtree app (click for Apple & Android).
