If you like flying drones, you may have some experience flying them around. Some people do this as a hobby and others use these amazing devices to achieve fabulous aerial photography and videos. Whatever, your pastime is, you will need to have a quadcopter, and this is why you need to read the Mavic vs Karma review as they are two of the high-end products that are not available on the market.

What is a quadcopter?

These flying machines were inspired by real helicopter and drones used by the quadcopters military, and they are capable of making some great maneuvers. In the past, remote controlled planes and helicopters were the main options for those who liked this aerial hobby. However, quadcopters will give a user a cross between the two with no need for a runway and also the speed you cannot get from an RC helicopter.

These incredible flying machines have come a long way since they first came out into the market. They used only to have a few minutes flying time before but now there are models that can fly for up to half an hour and can reach top speeds.

The advanced features

When you look at the RC planes and helicopters, you will notice that it requires line of sight so that those controlling it can make the right moves. With an advanced quadcopter like the Mavic or the Karma, you will get so much more that you will feel you are handling a device from the future. They will sport top speeds of up to 40mph, GPS and GLONASS and also visual positioning for improved accuracy during flights and landings, collision avoidance systems and can fly up tp 7km away from you. You do not even need line of sight as they often have an high-resolution onboard camera that will give a live streaming to your mobile phone which can be used to either pilot the drone or simply as a display.

As you can imagine, with all these advanced features the price of these drones are no laughing matter. If you are only a beginner, you should consider getting a cheaper device so that you will not feel too sad in case you break it or lose it. However, if you are an experienced pilot, you will know which features you values the most and can select a model according to your needs.
