The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone for someone that loves to take good quality pictures and videos

The DJI Phantom series is hard to beat. These drones work for both amateurs and professionals. They are a must have for the drone pilot that is serious about taking photographs and video.

The quality of still and moving image it is possible to capture with the Phantom is incredible.

The Phantom 4 Pro is the newest model.

 

 

Check out our exclusive interviews about the Phantom 4 Pro –

 

 

The camera on the Phantom 4 Pro has been designed to perform well in challenging light conditions.

Battery life is good at 31 minutes with full assisted functions turned on. That is a long flight time!

The Phantom 4 Pro includes advanced obstacle avoidance that works well even without GPS.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The Phantom 4 Pro was released in November 2016

 

 

The DJI Phantom 4 Pro is available for $1,499, and the DJI Phantom 4 Pro+ which comes with a built-in monitor to provide a clearer view when flying is priced at $1,799.

 

 

Another great drone for photography and video is the Typhoon H by Yuneec.

The Typhoon H comes in two versions – standard and with Intel® RealSense™. The key difference between the two is that the Typhoon H with Intel® RealSense™ comes with obstacle avoidance.

RealSense™ enables the drone to create intelligent routes around obstacles and remembers its environment. So if it avoids an obstacle once, it will remember the location of the obstacle and automatically know to avoid it. Pretty smart!

The Typhoon H has retractable landing gear. This means its legs fold and so will never be visible in a shot.

 

 

We get to know the Typhoon H in this video. Check it out! –

 

 

The Yuneec Typhoon H is available for $949.99

The Yuneec Typhoon H with Intel RealSense is currently reduced to $1,395.26

 

 

Drone technology moves so quickly that new models are being brought out all the time. In The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016 we tell you about the best drones available, regardless of age.

Jumping back to DJI, while the Phantom 4 Pro is the newest in the series, the Phantom 4 and Phantom 3 series’ are still great drones.

These have much of the same great technology as the Phantom 4 Pro but as older models are priced lower.

With the Phantom 4 the main feature you’ll miss from the Phantom 4 Pro is the quality of the camera. That said, the Phantom 4 camera is still great!

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The DJI Phantom 4 is glossy and easy to fly

 

 

Take a look at our review of the Phantom 4 in which we take a look at some of its functions:

 

 

 

The DJI Phantom 4 is currently priced at $1,049

The Phantom 3 comes in three versions – Professional, Advanced, and Standard. The quality of camera varies between each iteration.

 

 

See our review of the Phantom 3 Professional – we put it to the test in extreme winds:

 

 

 

We also flew the Phantom 3 Standard. This is our take on it –

 

 

 

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional has been reduced to $899 which includes a free battery and case.

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The Phantom 3 Professional produces great results

 

 

The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced is now priced at $699.

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

DJI’s Phantom 3 Advanced is worthy of a place in our ultimate drone gift guide

 

 

The DJI Phantom 3 Standard now retails at $461.

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The technology in a Phantom 3 Standard for less than $500 is amazing

A drone for a selfie addict

Yuneec’s Breeze takes good quality photos and videos that are instantly shareable on social media. So rather than having to live stream or wait to upload, you can share your experiences instantly.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

Yuneec’s Breeze is lightweight and easy to launch

 

 

The Breeze is lightweight and small enough to carry around easily, making it perfect for capturing impromptu moments while out and about.

 

We get to know the Breeze here –

 

 

 

It is a great starter drone for new pilots as it is easy to fly and taking pictures with it is super simple.

It is also a fun addition to the kit of experienced drone pilots for times when they want to put something in the air quickly and easily.

The Yuneec Breeze is priced at $399.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016: 

A drone for someone that travels light

The Mavic Pro is DJI’s smallest drone. When its arms and propellers are folded, the drone compresses to the size of a water bottle. That’s pretty incredible and is surely something those looking for a drone to take with them on the go or when space is limited will find hard to resist.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The DJI Mavic Pro folds for easy transportation

 

 

The propellers remain on when being transported so take off is super quick.

The Mavic Pro has a 4k camera number of automated features you will find in DJIs larger drones.

 

Take a look at the Mavic Pro here –

 

 

 

If you’ve narrowed it down to a DJI drone but can’t choose between a Phantom and a Mavic Pro this article will help you to decide. Basically, you’ll get better pictures and videos with the Phantom but the Mavic Pro is easier to transport.

The DJI Mavic Pro retails at $999.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone for a fixed wing flyer

Parrot’s Disco drone is described as “the first fixed-wing drone for immersive flights”. Looking more like a plane than a traditional drone, this is a great choice if you are looking for something different.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The Parrot Disco is a great drone for those looking for something different

 

 

Compact, extremely lightweight at 1.6lbs, and with a brushless engine, the Disco has a top speed of 50 mph.

Its flight time is an impressive 45 minutes and it can resist winds of 24 mph. Using the wind it flies for one hour.

 

We flew the Disco. Here’s what we thought –

 

 

 

The Disco has a 14 megapixels full HD frontal camera and a 32GB memory, allowing pilots to record high quality shots.

The Parrot Disco drone comes with a FPV headset called Cockpitglasses.

It also comes with a remote control, Skycontroller 2, which has been designed to blur the boundaries between gamepads and RC controllers. It is nice to use and feels like a gaming remote.

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

David tries out the Parrot Disco

 

 

Model aircraft enthusiasts may also pilot the Disco using their own RC controller in full manual mode.

The Parrot Disco is reduced to $990 for the Disco, Skycontroller 2 and Cockpitglasses.

 

 

If fixed wing is new to your gift recipient, a good entry level drone is Horizon Hobby’s Champ S+. This has 3 flight modes – Beginner, Intermediate, and Experienced – meaning it is going to be popular

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The Champ S+ fixed wing drone is suitable for all levels of flying skill

 

 

The Champ S+ has 3 flight modes – Beginner, Intermediate, and Experienced – meaning it is going to be popular with the recipient regardless of skill level.

The Champ S+ flies for around 12 minutes.

The Horizon Hobby Champ S+ is priced at retails at $156.02

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone for someone wanting to start small 

The Sky-Viper series is another fun starter drone. There are a few different drones in the range, and they are fun to fly and pretty easy to control.

We recommend the Streaming Video drone.

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The Sky-Viper drone series is a good introductory drone

 

 

The Sky-Viper Streaming Video drone is priced at $61.59.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone for someone wanting to have fun flying indoors

Parrot are the kings of the mini drone! They have 13 new models. These do everything from flying on water to grabbing small objects.

We have flown a number of them and have been impressed with all of them.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

Parrot make great easy to fly mini drones!

 

 

These little drones are fun to fly and are full of personality. They are a great starter drone.

Our all time favorite is the Parrot Rolling Spider. This is priced at $99.95

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for someone in need of a new way to carry their drone

GPC are the leader in high-quality drone cases for good reason.

Their products are strong, durable, and protect a drone and its accessories in even the toughest of conditions. Hard cases are completely watertight and resistant to UV rays, corrosion and fungus. If you care for your drone, treat it to a GPC case.

GPC have cases or backpacks for all major drones. If they don’t have one that meets your needs they will make one for you!

 

We use a GPC Phantom 4 backpack in this video. Take a look –

 

 

 

Get a Go Professional Cases Phantom 4 Backpack similar to the one we used for $149 and find the perfect Go Professional Cases case here.

 

A fun and functional addition to your drone flying essentials is a SCOTTeVEST. This range of jackets and vests allows you to keep essentials such as a cell phone and sunglasses close to hand, so you can keep your belongings safe and in order to maximize flying time while you are out.

 

Take a look at why we like the SCOTTeVEST –

 

 

 

SCOTTeVEST prices vary by jacket. Take a look!

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for someone that needs a place to fly

 

Finding places to fly can be difficult due to restrictions on where drones are allowed to fly. That’s where the AMA steps in.

As a member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics pilots are able to fly at thousands of club sites.

We often go to our local flying field and it’s a great space to fly freely, capture shots of nature, and connect with other drone pilots.

The AMA were the lead sponsor of International Drone Day 2016 and we filmed this video at the San Diego event which was held in an AMA field!

 

 

 

AMA membership is free to pilots aged 18 years or younger, $75 per year for those 19-65, and $65 per year for ages 65 and above.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for someone that loves beautiful photographs

Drones have opened up the world in an entirely new way. We are now able to view the beauty of our surroundings in never before seen ways, with a clarity that is truly mind blowing.

Photographer Aldyrn Estacio has wonderfully captured the beauty of San Diego in a beautiful hardcover book.

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for someone that wants to capture amazing aerial images

The images a drone captures are as good as the photographer capturing them.

Two expert photographers have published books on how to get the best from your drone. Both books offer tips and tricks to ensure the images captured are the best they can be.

Eric Cheng, former Director of Aerial Imaging at DJI, recently published his book Aerial Photography and Videography Using Drones.

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for a drone pilot that wants to capture moments when they can’t fly

Drone technology has inspired a range of non-flying equipment. The DJI Osmo is a handheld device that allows you to film from the ground with the smoothness of a drone.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The DJI brings drone technology to the ground

 

 

This allows you to capture action shots without the video blurring or shaking. Plus, the same applies when you move; the Osmo keeps the camera flat regardless of your movement so quality is not forsaken.

Check out this video we filmed with an Osmo –

 

 

 

The DJI Osmo is available in various versions. The lowest priced option is the DJI Osmo Mobile which uses a cell phone as a camera and is priced at $294
We first heard about the DxO ONE from Eric Cheng, DJI’s former Director of Aerial Imaging. A professional photographer, Cheng knows his stuff when it comes to cameras.

The DxO ONE is a small camera that may be used alone or attached to your cell phone to give professional level photographs in a tiny unit. We LOVE ours!

Check out these images captured by a DxO ONE:

If you are looking for a high-quality camera, or you have one but don’t want to always carry your bulky and expensive equipment with you, this is the perfect gift.

The DxO ONE is priced at $499

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for someone that wants to light up the sky

Check out our show on Lume Cube –

 

 

 

Lume Cube costs $79.99

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for someone that wants peace of mind

Ehang is the only company to offer a  1 Year No Hassle Warranty on their drone.

The GHOSTDRONE 2.0 does not have a remote control. Instead, you fly it using your phone, which you tilt to control the direction of flight.

It has an abundance of safety features, and if you break it they will fix it free of charge!

Take a look at our review of the GHOSTDRONE 2.0 VR –

 

 

 

The GHOSTDRONE 2.0 Aerial is priced at $399 which is a very low price for a 4K camera drone.

The GHOSTDRONE 2.0 VR comes with a virtual reality headset and is $699.99

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for someone that is safety conscious 

If safety is top of mind put a Tile Mate on your drone. This tiny, lightweight attachment allows you to track the location of your drone. So if you have a flyaway or your drone is stolen you know where to find it!

A drone gift for someone that wants to fly as much as they can

Flight time on drones is pretty short. They usually last around 20 minutes. So, batteries will be well received by your drone lover!

Important! If you give drone batteries as a gift do not charge them ahead of time. Lipo batteries can be dangerous and need to be charged in a controlled way.

Prices vary by drone.

That Drone Show‘s Ultimate Drone Gift Guide – Drone Racing Special!

Drone racing has been massively popular in 2016 and is going to be even bigger in 2017. It is, therefore, appropriate to devote a special part of the Gift Guide solely to it.

 

Check out one of the drone races we put on earlier this year –

 

 

Drone racers are great to buy for – they like to have lots of drones so they can handle different courses and keep flying when they crash. Plus, the crashing means they often need new parts!

Drones for racing either come ready to fly (RTF) , almost ready to fly (ARTF), or with pieces that the pilot puts together to create their own customized frame.

Most experienced pilots prefer to build their one drone, but ready to fly drones and almost ready to fly are a great way to get flying quickly.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone for someone that wants to fly immediately

If you go down the ready to fly route it’s important to buy from a company that can help to fix the drone – or advise on how to do it – when it inevitably crashes.

The Force 1 DYS XDR220 has a light weight, durable, bend-resistant carbon fiber frame. It has brushless motors designed for high speed racing, and a hard shell camera which stays safe when the drone crashes. It is a great choice

The DYS XDR220 comes with FPV goggles, RadioLink transmitter, and Lipo Balancer Charger.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The Force 1 DYS XDR220 is ready to fly

 

 

The Force 1 DYS XDR220 is priced at $599.95

 

Another great ready to fly drone is Xhover’s R5X RTF edition. This drone comes with everything installed and tuned so the recipient can start flying immediately.

The R5X RTF includes a Xhover R5X frame, Taranis XD Plus radio, Kiss Flight controller, Xhover 2204-2300kv motors, Sony 600TVL FPV Camera, and more.

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone for someone that is short of time

An almost ready to fly drone – or “bind and fly” – comes with everything but the transmitter. So, the drone pilot simply has to bind it to the transmitter they already own.

These drones are typically cheaper than Ready to Fly as they don’t include a transmitter or batteries, and the pilot has to do a little more work. They are a great choice for pilots who prefer to build their drone, but don’t want to waste time figuring out what gear to use to finish it off.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The Spedix S250 Pro from Amain Hobbies requires little work

 

 

A good ready to fly drone is the Spedix S250 Pro. It is lightweight, easy to assemble and simple to repair.

The Spedix S250 Pro comes fully assembled and programmed, and the majority of its electronic components are pre-soldered modules making assembly, repair and maintenance simple.

The drone has a 700TVL camera, Naze Rev6 flight controller, and reinforced 2204 2300KV motors.

The Spedix S250 Pro is $179.99

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone for someone that wants to build their own

Building your own drone is fun and practical – you can customize it to perform to your preference, and it makes you race ready as you will be able to carry out repairs following a crash.

Space One FPV has a great selection of frames. We recently saw the Pro Racing S-5 Stretch X in action and were hugely impressed.

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The Space One FPV Pro Racing S-5 Stretch X is designed for professional racing

 

 

This frame has been designed specifically for professional Drone Racing.  It is a 4.5 mm Full Carbon Fiber Unibody Stretch X Frame for 5″ Propellers, with a 2 mm Top plate, and two Carbon Fiber Camera mount plates. Weighing only 84 grams, this frame is a winner.

The Pro Racing S-5 Stretch X is currently reduced to only $34.95 from $99

 

Another great frame is the Dronehaus Mach 5. This is 200mm Motor to Motor and so is perfect for 5” props.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

The Dronehaus Mach 5 frame is customizable

 

 

It weighs 90 grams and has been ‘Torture Tested’. With reinforced arms for added crash resistance and rigidity and a 3D printed camera mount it’s a great choice. Plus, you can customize the top plate and the color to really personalize your gift.

The Dronehaus Mach 5 frame is priced at $69.99

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift to help a racer see more clearly

FPV goggles are an essential part of a drone racer’s equipment. They allow them to see the course as the drone does, and so react quickly in order to race smoothly and quickly. Drone racers are prepared to spend big on getting the right goggles.

Vuzix is a big name in smart glasses and video eyewear. Their FPV goggles, iWear, are specifically designed for drones and they are good!

iWear gives a 55″ diagonal field of view which is equivalent to a 125” screen viewed from 10 feet. They capture 1080p video and have a 5-megapixel camera.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

Vuzix iWear look sexy and perform well

 

 

The goggles have noise-isolation over ear design for clear audio and include an optional full immersion face mask.

Plus, they have head tracking and are multifunctional as they work with hundreds of video games. You can even mount an Augmented Reality video camera to the iWear.

Vuzix iWear are $499

 

Fat Shark is a big name in drone racing and offers a variety of goggle styles. Their most powerful goggles are the FSV1076 Dominator HD3.

The HD3 has a 42-degree field of view which is designed to give a large screen experience whilst still providing clear and crisp images.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

FatShark’s FSV1076 Dominator HD3 are customizable

 

The goggles come with a lower profile velcro backed removable faceplate to ensure a comfortable fit.

There are also a number of add-ons available, including a 3 axis head tracker module and diopter lens inserts.

FatShark FSV1076 Dominator HD3 goggles are priced at $499.99
VueXL make good starter goggles. Our favorite feature of the VX1+ FPV is that they can be worn either on your head or with a tripod. The tripod means you can step back and look at where the drone is physically located which is helpful if you are new to FPV.

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

David tries out the VueXL VX1+ FPV on a tripod

VX1+ FPV is low power and lightweight, and is compatible with most 250mm drone frames.
VueXL’s VX1+ FPV costs $199
The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:
A drone gift to keep equipment safe

Drone racers need a ground station as well as a drone and its accessories. SpyPak provides all this in one bag.

The top part of the bag holds up to 450 size multirotor frames and requires you to do almost no frame disassembly. The lower compartment holds vital equipment such as batteries, battery chargers, power supply and ground station setup.

Check out this video we produced for them –

 

 

The Skypak is priced at $99

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift to help a racer win

The CONNEX ProSight is a huge game changer in drone racing. It is made up of a delay-free 720p30 FPV HD camera,  delay-free, delay-free HD transmitter, and digital HD recorder. These work together to provide a crystal clear view of a course.

For the pilot it is like watching a race on a color television as opposed to a staticky black and white set, thus making them more likely to see obstacles and so win a race.

We have spoken to a number of pilots about these – watch out for our interviews coming soon! – and they all loved them. None had a single bad thing to say about ProSight.

 

Check out our look at CONNEX ProSight –

 

 

ProSight is compatible with all popular HDMI based Goggles and monitors and supports a line of sight range of 1000ft to 3000ft.

CONNEX ProSight is available now for $399

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for a racer that wants to fly regardless of weather

The saying “practice makes perfect” has never been truer than with drone racing. The best racers fly as much as possible, knowing that every flight they make improves their skill.

It’s not always possible to head out to somewhere that accommodates fast FPV flying, and that is the reason for the explosion in popularity of the Tiny Whoop. This micro drone flies smoothly indoors and is small enough to crash without ruining your home.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

Tiny Whoop has started a micro drone racing craze

 

 

Expect micro drone racing to become even bigger in 2016 as these drones can be flown anywhere, regardless of weather.

Tiny Whoop is available for $168

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016:

A drone gift for a racer that crashes (that’s all of them!)

In That Drone Show’s Ultimate Gift Guide we have looked at frames, goggles, storage, batteries, transmitters, and video systems.

In addition to these, your drone racer is going to need a bunch of other things in order to regularly fly their drone. Namely –

  • Motors
  • ESCs
  • Props
  • Antennas
  • Battery straps
  • Board camera for FPV
  • HD camera for recording (optional)
  • LiPo charger
  • Soldering iron

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

EMAX’s RS2205S RaceSpec Motor

 

 

All of these would make awesome gifts that would be gratefully received. If you are in doubt, know this – a drone racer can not have too many props, motors, ESCs or batteries. Having these will help them get back up in the air following a crash.

 

 

The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016

Dal Props are one of many types available from Amain Hobbies

 

 

We recommend you check out EMAX or Amain Hobbies for these. They have wide selections of products and friendly and knowledgeable staff that will help you to find the right fit for your drone racer.

Prices vary but start at a couple of dollars making these great stocking fillers.

 

We hope you have enjoyed The Ultimate Drone Gift Guide 2016.

Let us know what drone gifts you buy and receive this holiday season!
