Drones have been one of the most popular gifts over the holiday period – and there are some fantastic holiday camera deals on drones!
UAVs (or quadcopters, as they are also known) are not only much easier to fly than ever – the camera resolution has got much better, enabling you to get great aerial shots wherever you travel. You do have to watch out for the latest drone rules, to make sure that you fly safely and legally, but most of this is just common sense.
The most exciting news in terms of camera drones this year is the very recent launch of the DJI Mavic Mini – a very lightweight 249g drone that has been designed to avoid the need for registration in the USA and the UK. It is a drone that folds up to sit on your hand, but it is a great performer too. As this is a new model, we may not see much discount on the Mavic Mini – but its arrival probably means that the cost of other drones is likely to fall, to keep themselves attractive
