Drones have become increasingly popular due to the numerous benefits, features, and means of utilisation. Whether you are a consumer or a professional quadcopter owner, you get to enjoy faster and safer gadgets at affordable prices. If you’ve had certain reservations about buying a drone, 2017 is the best time to take the leap. For beginner flyers, Rotor Copters has in-depth reviews on the best beginner camera drones as well as professional drones for advanced flyers.

Here are some more reasons to further convince you to take that big step this year.

Participate in a healthy and rewarding hobby

When was the last time you got out to enjoy the sun and just have fun outside? Buying a drone could turn into a hobby that takes you out of the house to have fun with your children. Exploring the world outside opens up a new world of possibilities and increases your mental thinking.

Ability to explore cutting-edge technologies

Unlike previous years, quadcopter manufacturers are now packing in even more features. Quadcopters manufactured in 2016 had 4k resolution features and it’s expected that in 2017, more copters will feature subject tracking and object avoidance.  This means that you can now operate a drone without the fear of colliding with people or other things. With subject tracking, copters define a stationary target and allow it to track and follow the subject as it moves.  You don’t want to be left behind. Be the first to sample these new features available in modern drones.

Increased affordability

In the past few years, owning a drone would cost you more than $1,000. Fortunately, competition has led to better tech for less as you can now get a quality drone for only $600. What’s more, most of these models are feature packed and you don’t have to feel left out because you didn’t purchase an expensive drone. While at it, you also get to enjoy increased maneuverability and a prolonged battery life.

Drones are easy to fly

If you’ve watched videos of people crashing their drones and thought this wasn’t meant for you, you need to evaluate your decision.  Previous drone models were difficult to fly and required the expertise of a professional. However, recent models have made drone flight so easy for the average person. All you need is a tap of a button and your drone is on its way back home. Learning will take you some time, but once you’ve mastered the controls, you’ll have a blast zipping through the air and navigating different terrains in no time.

Drones allow you to do the impossible

Drones can help you make unbelievable films as well as take shots no one would ever think of.  If you’re an extreme sports action lover, you can make a movie together with your kids using a drone. You can even get close to natural wonders like the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls with your drone.

Job opportunity

While most people think of flying a drone as a recreational activity, some people are getting paid to fly a drone. Companies are actively looking for people to fly drones and record aerial videos for them for $250 a day. This is a great way to make some extra cash in your free time. New technologies are emerging everywhere and if you’re looking to diversify, learn a new skill and increases your chances of landing a new job.

Participate in drone racing

ESPN recently announced that they are going to broadcast drone racing on their network. Being a new sport, drone racing is attracting interest from different corners and there’s no better time to get involved other than now. If you love adventure and you’re looking for a new way to have fun, 2017 is the best year to get a drone.

Take high-quality photos from unique angles

With today’s social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram being all about showcasing and sharing quality videos and photos, you wouldn’t want to be left behind. While you can easily achieve this using a smartphone, there are some areas you may not be able to fully capture. Drones are hands free and allow you to take quality photos and videos at unique angles and with natural lighting. Moreover, most drone models have a follow me feature that can multi-task, meaning that they can share the photos and still focus on creating quality videos.

Drones are fun, affordable and more importantly, safe for you and your family. Hopefully, the above reasons will convince you to buy a drone.
