If you are planning on purchasing a drone and you would like one with the follow me function, then this list of 2 most popular drones that follow you will surely help you in your search. As you probably know already, the follow me function allows your drone to follow its transmitter around, wherever it goes. Although it might seem like a rather simple feature, not all drones have it. For it to work properly, they need to possess some sort of a system that is able to provide them with their location in space. With this being said, if you want to buy a drone with follow me function, here are the two most popular ones that both currently available on the market:
HUBSAN H501S X4
If you are looking for a relatively cheap but exceptionally durable drone that can follow you, then you cannot go wrong with HUBSAN’s flagship drone. It sports a nice clean design and is powered by strong brushless motors. As you’d expect from a $270 drone, this little guy is packed with awesome features on top of its, generally good specifications for the price range. With its maximum range of 300 meters and total flight time of up to 20 minutes, it becomes clear why HUBSAN H501S X4 is among the most popular drones currently available on the market. To top it all off, this bad boy comes with a full HD camera and a 4.3-inch LCD screen that allows you to see the action live through the live FPV feed. If this did not get you excited about this drone, then I have no idea what will…
DJI Phantom 4
If you are willing to splash around $650 for your new drone then you should seriously consider opting for DJI’s Phantom 4. As you could’ve guessed by yourself, not only does it possess the follow me function, but it also has a ton more. Underneath all those shiny features, you’ll get an exceptional drone that is able to fly for around 25 minutes and can comfortably reach distances above 1 kilometer without any lag issues. All things considered, if you are looking for a top quality drone with the follow me function and you are not afraid to spend a lot of money, DJI Phantom 4 is the right drone for you!
Few days ago GoPro has unveiled Karma, first drone by GoPro company. Karma belongs to high end drone group and it’s priced according to that. Drone alone costs $799 but if you want GoPro camera included then you’ll have to pay extra. Cool thing is GoPro didn’t limit themselves to drone only, instead they decided to support you on all your outdoor activities. Because of that, Karma drone comes with detachable camera stabilizer that can be used to make handheld shots more steady. Backpack that’s coming with Karma is optimised for both Karma drone and detachable camera stabilizer. Check out video below and you’ll get idea of what I’m talking about.
GoPro Karma is compatible with 3 GoPro cameras : GoPro Hero 5, GoPro Hero 5 Session and GoPro Hero 4. Two Hero 5 cameras were announced at the same time when GoPro Karma. Those are latest products from GoPro, and from what we can see for now products are very advanced.
Transmitter is story for itself. Concept of transmitter is very simple and user friendly. It reminds me on old phones where you had to fold/unfold keyboard. GoPro took it step forward and built flight simulator so you can pick up some basic flying concepts before actually flying drone. I believe that will reduce number of beginners crashing their drones. Who the hell wants to play with $1000 drone? There’s also another cool thing about GoPro Karma and it’s software part. GoPro engineers created Passanger app, that app is used to see camera live stream or even control camera while you’re controling drone using transmitter. It’s ideal for showing off in the front of your friends I guess 🙂
So, how do you like this new drone? Keep in mind this is first drone from GoPro company. To be honest, I like it very much. I can’t wait to see how it’s compared to DJI Mavic. If you didn’t hear about DJI Mavic, don’t worry because we’ll be talking about it soon! It’s latest drone from DJI company. We compare it to Karma because it’s foldable too. More about that – soon!
