Whilst this blog post has featured value under $100 Drones it would not be complete without introducing Low-Cost GPS Brushless Drones. In the last few years these drones have gained great popularity due to their low-cost compared to drones from the likes of DJI the world leader in the brushless motor drone space. Why should you consider purchasing one if these Bargain Brushless Drones? Well read on.
- Once they reach above 20 metres in height they are barely audible (the same cannot be said of the DJI Phantoms) and this makes these Cheap Brushless GPD Drones far less likely to cause offence or annoy people in close proximity.
- The are relatively east to set up and deploy. You must however remember to have a least the recommend number of satellites connected to both the remote controller and the GPS Drone as failure to do this will lead to erratic flight control and at worst a fly away.
- These GPS drones are fitted with powerful brushless motors that are far more robust and longer lasting than their coreless motor counterparts.
- The come with far larger Lipo batteries so you will get more than double the flying time.
