Considering purchasing a new drone, and just can’t decide which option is the best? The right drone for you simply comes down to what you’re looking for in regards to features, such as a high-quality gimbal or a quadcopter that already comes with a camera. The DJI Inspire 1 and the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K are two good examples of high quality drones, however one may appeal to you way more than the other. Let’s compare a few features to help you make a decision: Design The Typhoon Q500 was designed to take away the hassle in drone video. It produces stunning video in both 4k and 1080p, but we’ll get into the details of the camera further down. Similar to the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+, the quadcopter’s build makes it perfect for aerial photography and video graphy. Its gimbal keeps the camera perfectly steady, while the drone holds up quite well despite being made of plastic. The Q500 also has many limiting features. To keep it legal with current FAA guidelines for non-commercial drone use, this drone will not fly nearby airports, and it won’t go more than 400 feet up. These features are handy in that they keep the pilot out of potentially large fines, but do limit pilots who may have FAA exemptions. The Inspire 1 features a carbon fiber frame, which allows it to carry it’s larger payload and stays in the air for longer. Its legs fold up without compromising the design or adding too much additional weight. Its “transforming” arms allow the quadcopter to keep the camera high and protected when landing. They also drop down so you have a perfect line of sight when flying and allow you to rotate the camera around 360 degrees without seeing the body of the Inspire 1. Camera The cameras for both drones offer 1080HD & 4K video capabilities, and 12 megapixel images. The Inspire 1 has a field of view of 94 degrees which gives it a nice wide angle look with compromising the image and giving you a fish eye style look, that other cameras and drones may have. The drone also looks professional, with it’s sleek and minimalistic design. Here are some sample videos from As for the Q500 it also produces 1080p and 4k images, with a 12 megapixel camera for stills. The Q500 has an amazing flight time of 25 minutes, which blows a lot of other drones away. The Q500 has a 115 degree lens which is a pretty wide lens. However, it does have built in software that automatically corrects for any distortion to the image. Here are some sample videos of the Q500 Flight Which drone flies better is currently up for debate as both have the tendency to crash given the right circumstance or some bugs in the software. The abilities of the operator must be taken into consideration, so if you’re new to drone technology, it’s best to start with a smaller, less expensive option as opposed to either of these!
