What's the best to buy? Just curious thinking about getting one...
Have you read up on the FAA rules? That might help you make your decision as to size and capability:
Fly for Fun
Drone Authority » Drone License
Unmanned Aircraft Systems
phantom 4 ? is said to be a good one.....has a good battery time..30 minutes or so.. i am not much into drones...more something i am gonna shoot out the flying sky....if its over my land
might wanna consider that or your neighbors
now i will say this ...if you are gonna get a nice one...i would sure the hell try to film something with it and charge....try to make it a business hobby for a year or long enough to replay the cost of the drone then go outtta business....i hate the irs lol
I only have a few neighbors, live on a lake..... I am trying to find this tractor in the over growth woods my neighbors told me about, it was abandoned years ago when it was clear cut.
That's what I was thinking too, seen a bunch of side job adds from Realtors wanting to hire people with drones.
Something to do that might be fun...
You first need to declare the reason for buying one, what are you going to use it for? It's like deciding to buy a car or a pair of shoes. They are driven, or worn for different purposes. Then set a budget. You can spend less than a thousand or many thousands.
Rots'o'ruck, GI. I hear Federal prison can be educational. You own your land, but not the airspace over it. Add to this, the Feds consider drones "aircraft", which is why operators need to be registered. Shooting one down is seen as shooting down an aircraft over your land.

This is a trend. People have shot down drones in southern New Jersey and rural California as well. It's illegal, and they get arrested for it.
It Is A Federal Crime To Shoot Down A Drone, Says FAA
Drones are replacing traditional aircraft and pilots for several jobs such as photographing real estate, checking out power links, police monitoring of traffic, etc.
