Got to be one of,if not the best looking drone on the market


Yes,and with £290 off the price.
This one is better and a lot cheaper. Eachine’s 250 Racer Multicopter
blog.banggood.com/eac…tml

From Banggood eth RTF version is only.. £156
banggood.com/Eac…tml

A much better configurable and very fast QuadCopter.
Can use the on board camera for FPV flying as well.
And add any HD Sports camera to it for full HD (Max £40 cosy)
Buy a 2nd higher capacity battery too. for even more flying time.

Check the reviews of this on YouTube to see how good it really is.

If you crash the £3,000 DJI you'll cry. And you will crash it. Even experienced Quad pilots crash.

You're comparing a rolls royce with a pre-built kit car. They are different things for different purposes.

The Inspire is proven & has been available for over a year - plus it can be upgraded to take Micro 4/3rds camera & different lenses.
This Yuneec does not yet exist & afaik cannot be upgraded to take a bigger camera/different lenses.

A couple of good options for this featured drone are controllable camera and controllable from a second controller......I don't think you can mod the above to do that?

I have the same drone,well it's the standard version but pretty much the same,cost £449 as its on offer as its normally £699.

I've just taken it out for its 3rd flight and got some good footage as it has a feature where you can set the drone to rotate around a point of interest.i will post up the video later once it's uploaded to YouTube as its taking a while its it was recorded in 2.7k

You clearly have little experience and more money than sense.
So please go ahead and pay £3k for a toy quad with a good camera.

Yes the Eachine Falcon 250 is a bit of a Rolls Royce. And it fully configurable. Has interchangeable parts. Is a speed racer and a steady flyer for good film work. I'd say its a good all rounder and at the price a great intro into Quad flying.

Yes that's true. The camera on this DJI Inspire 1 Drone is better and more controllable. Is that worth and extra £2.8k?
I looked at the reviews and a 4k camera mounted to the top of the Falcon 250 won't cost too much. Yes you have to move the Quad copter to point the camera not rotate the camera mount. So you can achieve the same results, but it's a bit more complex to do it.

How is it £2.8K more expensive? Got any footage take by this super drone you recommend? I cant help think its a bit like comparing Butlins with a Sandals all inclusive. I expect you can enjoy yourself with it, but you get what you pay for.

The Falcon 250 can have an action cam like a GoPro mounted on it. Check YouTube for the samples and reviews. The DJI Inspire 1 Drone is nearly £3,000. The Falcon and a Action cam £200. so simple maths gives you a £2,800 (£2.8k) price difference. I am not saying it the best Quad around. It's just amazing value. The comparison is the Falcon 250 is a good Drone and all ready to modify at a reasonable cost of you put some effort in and have the skill. The DJI Inspire 1 Drone is for lazy rich kids who just want to show off.

But the DJI Inspire 1 Drone is not £2000 better. It's simply not worth the extra. and If I needed a quality Quad for film making and professional use the DJI Inspire 1 Drone would not be my choice.

This deal is for a dji inspire and is £2,299 and I did the maths. Are you pricing with a gold plated case and extra remotes?

And whilst you may be correct that your one is good value, i cant see how you can compare.

Yes i have a dji phantom 3 standard.

It will fly back to your location if it loses signal,it will follow you without you controlling it,you can select routes for it to fly itself.its probably easier if I just put up a link as it does so much I could be here all day telling you.

I just did google you tube as yiu suggested and I am honestly astonished you are seriously trying to compare the two. A gopro is a good camera but its the gimble thats the important part.

The software features available on dji drones is also in a different league.

Not the best video but it's only my 3rd flight and it was a windy day as you can tell by looking at the flag on the church.

Wow, what I find amazing is just how incredibly stable it is. The horizon doesn't move at all, is this the stock drone with stock gimbal/camera? I can see why film crews and movie producers would be all over this bit of kit, n I can feel an itchy buy-it-now trigger finger moment coming on. oO

Yes the drone is stock.

If you take notice drones are used quite a bit already on tv programs,also I know Dorset police have just purchased a couple of dji inspire 1 drones for search and rescue situations.

The gimbal is very good as you can see,if anything the videos I posted are the most unstable ones I've done due to the wind,but even then it only moves ever so slightly.

I will post another up which at first doesn't look like the video is even playing as its so still in the air.

These are relatively all still toys and hobby drones though really.
What's the W/s max of these DJIs?
The one I get paid to play with can still be up for 55 mins in 65 kt winds, rain and come back safely. There again, we don't refer to them as drones, rather UAVs or UAS. aeryon.com/aer…ger
