Hi Guys,

I got an advert on Facebook about a drone with a camera attached to them and it looked awesome, as does any product advertisement which is done right!

My question is, are they just something you'd play around with for 5 minutes and then leave it? I have no interest in photography.

I'm well aware of the drone laws in UK.

Can anyone recommend a drone, I live in the UK budget of £500 and needs a camera strapped to it.

Thanks

I bought one for my kids, but I was half afraid to let them play with it incase they crashed it or something LoL. If you are buying a drone I would suggest buying spare batteries for the drone as im pretty sure most drones have a shitty battery life.
They are definitely worth the money you get to have so much fun with them(:

To be honest, buy a drone that's worth the money. Anything DJI is a great drone. I own 2 DJI drones and love them. 4K @ 30FPS, camera/custom app/etc. Easy to use and QUALITY drone.

Yeah that the advert which came up within Facebook. Can you recommend a drone from their site, they have loads.

Thanks for the reply both of you!

For me, it was exactly that. After playing around with it for a few days it became something that I would only really play with when friends or family was over. Neat while the fun lasted though, I would recommend it.

Yes, highly recommended. I have watched my friends use multiple, help fly and fly only a few times but they are very fun and the things you can do are endless and very fun. Good luck mate! Buy a nice one!
