Quadcopter Comparison Table

When I decide I want to buy something, before the buying step there is always the research step, and many times that can be painful! If you’re not used to all the subtle variations between products, they can all look the same, with different prices. So choosing the cheapest might seem the smart move, but many times it is not!

First, decide what you need

Buying drones is not only about prices. There are many many variations between different brands and models that sometimes go unnoticed among the huge amount of products available.

For example:

  • Do you need (and are willing to pay for) a 30-minute-long battery life? Or maybe 10 min is enough for you to have fun, making it possible for you to buy other cool gadgets with the extra money.
  • Being able to watch your flight live from the on-board camera is certainly awesome (and I recommend it), but maybe you just want a quadcopter to fly around and do some stunts. That will save you big bucks!
  • Maybe you are a professional film-maker that wants a professional drone. In this case, is the included camera good enough?

If you have no idea what you need, this post can help you.

Then, check our table

Since I like saving money, I always look for the easiest and most efficient ways to compare all the products out there. So judging by my experience, I can say using filters in e-commerce websites is usually not enough, as they lack important info, and sometimes can make you more confused than help you decide. Also, looking at all the product options available is nearly impossible: typing “quadcopter” on Amazon right now yields 47,267 results. Crazy, right? So how are you supposed to find what you want?

Well, I’ve decided to do this work for you!

Below you will find the comparison table with a variety of quadcopter models (and always expanding) of different prices, sizes and specs. You can sort the data by columns based on your preferences and hopefully find an awesome choice for you!

Update: we also added a Spare Parts / Accessories column! So, before you choose what quadcopter to buy, you can check how much you would spend in extra parts, cases and backpacks. Also, you can come back here to find those parts easily for your drone.
