For a use a bit “crazy” think beginner drone type Racer. The Racer is a more or less acrobatic drone racing activity. Not specially equipped with a camera but ultra dynamic and vivid, this small drone will delight the adventurous in search of strong emotions aircraft version. Be careful, these drones are therefore made to go fast, do acrobatic courses, etc. They ask to have a minimum of know-how when it comes to piloting. Starting with a mini drone is then the good idea to have! To make your hand, simple mini models are much less demanding and will not ask you to move to an area dedicated to racer flights. For these machines, many specialized sites highlight models such as the Hubasn X4 H107 C. Small simple handling drones whose prices are around €50 maximum (€35 at Amazon for example). For more advice in your beginnings as racer drivers, I advise you to take a look at the FPV-Spirit article.

For your choice of mini drone, you can turn here to the French manufacturer Parrot who offers the Mambo Mission. Robust, equipped with propeller protectors (if I tell you this is a good thing), you can also find it with pretty funs accessories such as a clamp. Another flagship choice right now is the DJI Ryze Tello . A little more expensive (we find it at 89€ right now without a controller, which remains a good price for this model), this small drone drone is a very good solution to start in the flight and take aerial images! A 5 MP sensor, the possibility of filming in 720p: you have something to have fun!

The perfect budget to get started?

We stayed in relatively simple models higher. Anyway have fun around a good hundred euros. If you have a desire to go further and a larger budget, count in the 500€. Invest, for example, in the Spark model DJI (yes yes… they are pretty leader in the field, I recognize). We get out of the mini-drone but remain in the drone category for beginners despite everything. A nice little drone that will allow you to go further and higher… and make better captions with 12 Mpx and film in FHD (1080p at 30 frames per second).
