Drones Buyer Guide – 2020
You are buyer and buyer is king. Usually, before buying anything, we do some research on it. This is a normal purchasing process that is followed by every single person.
You should not purchase anything just after reading some article and review online. Please don’t trust anyone because in the end if something will be wrong, you are the one who will be suffered. These reviews (including mine) are the writers’ evaluations based on their knowledge and research. But being a customer, there would be some requirements by you that must be verified by you before placing an order.
Here I am writing down some guideline that will definitely help you in buying your desired product. It will contain some general guidelines that will implement everything while some other which are applicable to Drones only.
Budget and Price:
Before buying anything, we allocate some budget for that item. It is a very important thing in managing your financials. Once you allocate your budget, you will find many items.
For Example, you will see some Drones at a very low price while others will be very expensive. In a very cheap price, you can get a Drone but that would not be a quality product and your money would be wasted. Money always matters. More money will add more value to your product. More Features, Technology and etc.
Neither you should go to the cheapest one, nor to the very expensive that would destroy your budget. Choose the one that fits your budget with better features.
You must consider the durability of Drone because kids will
be crashing it with roof, walls, doors, etc. I have tried my best to list those
models which are durable and will survive after some crashing during the
learning phase of your kids.
I personally don’t like to allow kids and teens to spend more time on watching mobiles or tablets. It is good that kids of this generation know how to use these devices. But I have listed all Drones which are without Camera so that our teenagers and kids can spend some time watching the real things around them instead of mobile and Tablets.
Selection of Drone should be based on the age of your kid. Usually, kids above 7 years can fly a drone. Normally manufacturer recommendations for fly a Drone is 14 or above but there are some models mentioned above can be operated and fly by under 10 kids. I will prefer the gesture induction Drones for kids below 10 years.
For teenagers, all above-mentioned drones are suitable. Mostly teenagers like remote control Drones. So every kid has his right to choose the drone of his choice.
One and the most important thing is that there are different laws in different countries regarding flying Drones. You cannot fly every drone anywhere. If you are doing this, you could be in trouble with the authorities, especially if you are flying this near some Airport.
So please be careful and obey the law because the laws are for our betterment and security. As per my information, in UAE a Drone with a weight of 11 pounds, you must get a permit or license. Also, the terms and conditions are different for personal and commercial level. If you are in Saudi Arabia, please search for the law there.
In the end, I would like to say thank you for reading this post. If you are buying Drone for you or for your kids, please make sure that you have researched the product and the local laws. I have not mentioned heavyweight or big sized Drones that would require a license or permit from the authorities. However being a responsible citizen, this is your responsibility to be aware of your local law.
