What types of drone can you get?
Plane-drone: this fixed-wing drone has a longer range and acts more like a remote controlled plane than a drone. The launch and landing needs much more space than a rotor drone, and they can’t hover.
Helicopter-drone: a miniature helicopter, this drone has one single-rotor on the top and a tail rotor for control. They are difficult to fly and can be quite dangerous as the blades can cause much more damage.
Racing-drone: normally a lightweight version of either a quad or hexacopter, the racing drone is built for speed – they can reach 50-60 mph.
Quadcopter-drone: easy to fly and very stable, quadcopters are also normally the cheapest option as they are fairly easy to make with durable materials.
Hexacopter-drone: similar to the quadcopter but with six rotors, making for more powerful machines that can carry more weight. But they cost more to produce and can be expensive for a hobbyist.
Octocopter-drone: eight rotors means more power and manoeuvrability than other drones, and they can carry a large payload. However, it also means a big increase in price, and they have a low battery lifespan.
