Here are some best quadcopters in 2016.
If you’re looking to buy your first quadcopter, the UDI U818A would be one of the best choices for you. This quadcopter is perfect for beginners and for those who are more intermediate users but still want to learn how to properly fly a quadcopter before buying a more expensive one. Although this quadcopter is pretty well-built (you’ll probably see that as you might crash it a few times if you are a beginner), we don’t recommend flying above concrete or asphalt.
Its 500mAh 3.7 V LiPo battery will allow you to fly it for 7 to 9 minutes before having to charge it again, the charging time takes 60 minutes. It has a remote range of 300 ft (90 m).
For the price of $52 the camera is pretty good, it can take pictures at 640X480 pixels. You can upload your pictures to your computer via USB cable.
2.Hubsan X4 (H107C)
The Hubsan X4 (H107C) is a mini quadcopter mainly designed for indoor use. The 3.7 V 380mAh battery will allow you to fly it for 7 minutes and the charging time takes 40 minutes. It has a 0.3 megapixel camera which is pretty good for a $37 quadcopter. It is a perfect drone for beginners who are looking to improve their drone skills.It also features LED lights which will make it look very cool during nighttime.
For around $44 you can get an easy flying quadcopter with simplistic controls, a 720p HD camera and enough power to fly against light wind. It comes with a 4GB microSD card for storage. This is a pretty durable quadcopter but if you happen to break it you can easily repair the damaged parts. The camera doesn’t have any stabilisation so you will get some shaky videos but knowing the fact that this thing costs $50 bucks you can’t really complain about it. The 3.7-volt 500mAh battery will allow you to fly it for about 7 minutes, detaching the camera will allow you to fly it for a few minutes more but after the battery is fully depleted you will have to wait 90 minutes for a full recharge.
4.Holy Stone F180C
The Holy Stone F180C mini quadcopter is a good choice for beginners or pros. This thing flies pretty fast, like a bullet and on top of that is very durable. It has 4 sensitivity modes, LED lights for night use and it features a 720p HD camera. The remote features an LCD display for information 4 way flip mode with continuous roll. The sensitivity modes allows you to experiment with the quadcopter according to your drone experience.25-50% sensitivity mode makes it easy to fly indoors while for outdoor flight the best mode is 75-100%. It has a 3.7V 350mAh battery which allows you to fly it for about 7 minutes before having to put it to recharge for about 45 minutes.
Considering all the features above this quadcopter is a pretty good deal for 60$.
Costing only just $500, the Parrot Bebop has many of the same features as quadcopters that cost twice as much money, including streaming video and GPS. It features a 1200mAh Lithium-polymer battery that will allow you to fly it for about 11 minutes, and the two additional batteries will give you another 11 minutes of flight time totalling to a 22 minutes of flight time. The quadcopter has an HD camera, 3-axis gimbal stabilization and GNSS location tracking (GPS and GLONASS) and many other features. It also has a quad core GPU, P7 dual-core CPU and 8GB of internal memory. Although the drone looks pretty clumsy it is a pretty durable one.
