Did you get a drone for Christmas?
Updated: Jan 5
If you did, you’re probably keen to start flying it as soon as possible! Drones are generally ready to fly right away but sometimes extra accessories should be considered to get the most out of your flight! Here is a list of some extras you should consider buying for your new drone!!
1 - SD CARD
It can be frustrating when you’ve prepared everything for a perfect shot, but your SD card is not working or already full. Avoid this situation by keeping plenty of compatible Micro SD Cards at hand.
Personally, I recommend a SanDisk SD Card.
2 – Landing Pad
Sometimes take-off areas are not ideal, and you have to think about how to protect your drone from ground for take-off and landing. Sometimes you can just use a simple of piece of wood, but you can also buy a portable and easy-to-fold pad, which looks professional and neatly folds away!
3 - Spare Propellors
Probably something that would not need to be replaced all that often but propellers can be fragile and if you don’t have working ones you can’t fly, they are generally pretty affordable to replace so it’s no harm at all having some spares close by!
4 - Spare Batteries
No brainer here, up to 30 minutes flight time is great, but if you are on a job or even just out for the day 30 minutes can fly by (pun intended, sorry!). Batteries can be expensive but defiently worth having a couple spares. Worth looking at car chargers too. Thank me later.
5 – Drone Carrier Case
Most Drone pilots bring their drone everywhere they go, having a carrier case gives you piece of mind that your drone is safe and secure while you are moving around. Some even double us to carry a laptop and tablet as well!
