Article By Zxerston Ong  ( 03/2017)

Welcome to a world full of breathtaking landscapes taken by drones that even YOU can capture yourself. Drones were once originally made for military purposes to scout enemy bases, but now marching into a new era, drones can even be owned by you. Consumers’ drones are made for 2 reasons, one of them is for people who fly drones as their hobbies and the other one is, of course, taking awe-inspiring landscapes. Without further ado, let’s announce our Top 5 GREATEST Aerial Photography and Videography DRONES based on all reviews and research I have went through.

Our Number 5 Best Drone for taking Aerial pictures is .….

PARROT BEBOP 2

Why Parrot bebop 2? Parrot is one of the many consumers’ drones that is not only light but is also specially designed to be transported easily and conveniently. Travelling at a speed of 37.28 mph horizontally and 13.05 mph vertically allows it to capture amazing 1080p full HD, 180 degree pictures. Parrot is the best choice for you if you go jungle trekking or mountain hiking often and want to share the view with other people. Another best feature for Parrot Bepop 2 is that it offers GPS and visual tracking which is convenient when you are cycling, running, kayaking, or even climbing, it will follow you via its GPS function.

YUNEEC TYPHOON H PRO

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yuneec Typhoon H Pro is placed at number 4 due to its camera quality and offers wider field of vision compared to Parrot Bepop 2. Typhoon H Pro is an award winning innovation for the most advanced aerial photography and videography platform drone available. You may be thinking why it is not the first place. Trust me this is the toughest decision, placing Typhoon H Pro at number 4. Why? Because it consists quite some disadvantages for drone users. It is a bit bulky and not really convenient. Not only the Typhoon can capture 4K videos but also display 720p HD live. This drone is highly recommended for film directors and landscape lovers because of its ability to have 360 degrees range of motion and 98 degrees of field of view.

  • Film in 4K HD with range of motion, 360 degrees and 98 degrees of field of view.

And here goes our TOP 3…

DJI PHANTOM 4 PRO

 

 

 

 

 

DJI Phantom 4 Pro is actually one of the most well-known drone among the drone community and even outsiders. Due its unique design of drone, it has actually earned itself some reputation in the drone community. Similar to Typhoon, it captures images in 4K resolution. Phantom 4 Pro is in the top 3 list because it has a longer range of control and in fact, it has the longest battery life among other 4 drones. Travelling at a speed of 20 m/s in sport mode, it allows the drone to track the down cyclists with the help of an inbuilt tracking system.

DJI MAVIC PRO

 

Mavic Pro deserves to be on the number 2 seat, all because of it’s add on features compared to DJI Phantom 4 pro. If you are reading this article, I am pretty sure that we all know that the Phantom 4 Pro and Mavic Pro have some pretty rough times due to the competition comparison placed among these two. Mavic Pro is placed number 2 because it does not only have DJI goggles (which help protect the lens) but also consist of foldable features that enables easy travel. It is similar to the size of a Parrot Bepop 2. With such size to capture 4K images, it is really rare as even the Parrot Bepop 2 can only capture 1080p resolution.

  1. Come on guys. The quality of your articles has plunged recently. “…drones that even YOU can capture yourself…” This is insulting.

    Unsubscribed because the last five articles or so have been absolutely terrible. This used to be a place for INSIDER information for people who already understand the basics. Now it’s just a bunch of advertisey articles with bad grammar and shallow research.

    • Hi Jon,

      We appreciate your comments. This article was a guest article for the mavic pro competition. We will change it to make it more suitable for our site.

      Thank you

    • Wow Jon, I bet you are very good in English. First of all, good to know you spotted a tiny mistake. Second, instead of just stating it as a pure insult, why not you suggest a correction instead of being such a grammar Nazi. Besides. I don’t know about your definition of shallow but that is a well described word for your comment.

    • I am sorry, Jon if there’s any unpleasant sections that annoyed you. Firstly, this article is written by Me myself, therefore it’s under the guest article section, please do not assume that this is an official article. Therefore, to answer your statement for stating that articles should be ABOUT people that owned drones, I am writing this article to enter a drone giveaway and the requirements are to write an article ANYTHING about drones. So, that is why, it is under the GUEST sections, Jon. Please do not place the wrong image on drone Insider and also Grammar Mistakes? Sir Jon, this article has been reviewed by more than 3 person, and all mistakes has been done, now you, yourself read and saying that there are grammatical mistakes? I am curious, please do state out the mistakes if you seen any because I am really curious with the mistakes. In a nutshell, this article is under the guest section and this article is made to participate in a giveaway, please do check our articles other than articles under guest sections. Thank you so much, Sir Jon. Please do reply me 🙂

    • Hey Jon,

      this article was made by a guest writer who took effort in making, compiling and constructing an article coherent enough for you to read it. Though you may not find his efforts sufficient enough to match your standards, he’s just a guest writer, not a professional guest writer. Perhaps even we can both agree that the quality of an article lies in its content.

    • Hey Jon, please don’t fire random shots when you lack the understanding of the purpose of writing this article. This article is written just to compete for a competition. Therefore, please shut your mouth before knowing what the actual situation is. Thanks you, btw, you can open your mouth when you

  2. Hi there, to be honest I do agree with Jon that the articles on this site should be more of the INSIDER of drones but on the other hand, this is truly an amazing piece of drone article. Over these years of collecting drones, I do agree with this guy who wrote this article and I got to disagree with Jon and praise this fellow for doing a great job in researching. Despite of some minor mistakes, this is really an amazing article for those who are making comparisons among drones, Good piece of article! And tbh this article may be the best article among other guest articles.
