The early drones were rather bulky and cumbersome. They were still lots of fun but they were far from compact. Now, thanks to advances in technology, many drone companies, including Altair Aerial, are offering smaller drones with cameras.
The technology has evolved and advanced at a rapid rate and with time, drones became a lot smaller.
At first, most of the small drones were budget options with limited functionality and very basic cameras or no cameras at all. Fortunately, you can now get a mini-drone with camera that comes very close to the best of them.
Altair Aerial have proven this with the AA108 mini drone with HD camera. In terms of features, these mini drones are as good, often better, than their larger counterparts.
Smaller Does Not Equal Inferior
While the bigger drones are impressive, don’t for a second think that the smaller drones are inferior or less capable. Sure, they will have a short range and less fly time but they are tough, fast and agile. Many can perform amazing tricks and some have very impressive cameras.
The gap in price between the inexpensive toy drones and the full functional mini-drones with camera is becoming smaller and, while there is still a market for the toy drones, for a few dollars more, you may as well get a drone with a great set of features and a good camera. You will get so much more out of it.
You CAN Take It With You!
The other advantage is that the mini-drones are compact and easy to take with you. No need to lug around a massive contraption or leave it at home because it is too big to take with you.
Now you can have your drone with you at all times so that it is there when you need it. You never know when you will come across an opportunity that would be perfect for a quick flip or some spectacular aerial footage.
Small Drone, Small Price
Apart from the size, the biggest advantage is that these mini-drones are incredibly reasonably priced. There is no need to break the bank to get a quality mini-drone. Another mistake many people make is thinking that they are fragile. The majority are incredibly strong.
Looking for the best mini-drone with camera?
We at Altair Aerial are extremely proud of our mini-drone with camera, the AA108. We set out to make a quality mini-drone with HD camera at a great price with all the features you could hope for. We believe we did just that.
The AA108 has proved to be a top-selling drone and we have many happy and enthusiastic customers. It is fun and easy to fly for beginners while still be exciting enough for more experienced pilots.
Let Me Tell You Why
The AA108 is no toy, let’s just get that straight. Just because it is priced at a little over $100 and fits in your hand at 183mm X 198mm X 43mm, it performs like many of the larger more expensive options out there. In fact, in some ways, the small size allows it to handle even better. It is fast and agile and super easy to fly.
Before we get on to the flying, let’s talk about the camera. We fitted the AA108 with a 720p HD camera. This allows for exhilarating FPV or excellent aerial video or stills. You can follow the live action directly on your smartphone or tablet as you soar through the air.
Having a drone without a decent camera will be fun for a while but you will soon realize you are missing out. Not so with the AA108. It has a good 120-degree FOV to capture great panoramic views from the air. You can also use VR mode if you have the goggles. It also has most of the features you would expect to make your aerial footage more interesting and entertaining while also making it easier to execute.
Full of Features!
The AA108 has altitude hold and headless mode, both of which make it easier to fly and let you focus on your video while the drone does all the work. These can be switched on and off at any time, depending on how much control you want. Another nifty feature is that it allows you to create a customized route for a real hands-free experience.
Experience Flying with the AA108
Flying a drone has never been easier. First off, it is ready to fly straight out of the box. That is a huge bonus if you are rearing to get up in the air. All you need to do is charge the battery and you are ready to go.
One Touch Flying!
We wanted to make a drone that anyone could fly even if they are absolute beginners. We made this easy with the AA108. One touch take off and land means that getting going is a breeze. Simply hit the button and away you go. This is often something beginners struggle with so this feature is really handy. For experienced pilots, it is a great convenience.
Great For Beginners and Experts
Then we incorporated 3 speeds. Beginners can get a feel for the controls and flight before moving up to the faster speeds. This also means you are not limited so as your skills improve, so does the power and ability. You never have to get bored. The low speeds are also great if you want to fly indoors which can be a lot of fun.
Plenty of Safety Features
There are a number of safety features which are great for beginners and even come in handy for experienced pilots at times. It has an out of range alarm and a low battery warning.
If the drone gets into trouble, it will perform a safe emergency landing. Another important factor is the durability. Despite the small size of the AA108, it is a tough little drone and will handle the occasional knock and fall without a problem.
10 Minutes of Flight Time!
The AA108 will give you a fair 8 to 10 minutes flying time which is not bad for a drone of this size and price range. Many others in this category fall far short of that. The range is also good at around 100 meters or 300 feet.
