4 Top New Mini Camera Drones of 2017
Hello everyone! Today I would like to go over some of the mini camera drones that are on the market and the difference between them. We will of course include our own drone but we would like to also show you 3 other drones that are on the market right now. As I’m sure many of you know, mini hd drones are getting more and more popular. I honestly love these little drones and have a couple complaints about them but we can go over those as well.
One of the things i really enjoy about these mini drones is the ability to take pictures of my wife and I and not have to hold the camera. This is the #1 feature to me. Being able to take quality photos with a mini drone is awesome! So that being said I think that its important that the drone is able to stay level so that you can have great pictures or video.
Its also important to have a good quality camera so that your pictures aren’t grainy. That’s one thing I dislike about the JJRC Mini Elfie drone. being that the camera is only 480p it does lack in the quality department for pictures and video.
Another thing to keep in mind is that whatever the camera weighs, along with the drone, motors, wifi chip and everything else, the battery has to power. The bigger the drone the more it weighs the less time you get in the air. That is another downside.. Battery life.
So lets go ahead and jump right into this and look at some of these drones.

I have been wanting one of these for a long time but when it comes right down to it, its pretty expensive. $349.00 on Amazon expensive. While thing thing might has gesture controls, gps capability, a 4k camera. I just can’t justify spending that much money on a pocket drone when I know they are easy to crash if you wanna have fun with it.
