Hello my friends.  I know I’ve been in the air and on water lately but I’m so excited about my new toys.  I had to interrupt this announcement (well not this one, but the planes) to introduce my newest kid toys – big and small – kids that is.  These toys are great for those who believe they were born 100 years, maybe 1,000 years too late.  These are a great way to relive the prehistoric days, safely.

I stumbled across these fellows and they are so much fun. First is the Walking Triceratops Dinosaur.  The triceratops can move forward and backward in a lifelike manner and can open and close its mouth. The glowing head and lifelike sounds created by this triceratops will instill fear in everyone around you, well maybe the younger ones anyway. But I’ve always been a dino nut and these just convinced me – justifiably so, that that’s Okay. This one has no controller so it is simple for little kids to flip a switch and watch him do his thing.

 

Second I found the Infrared T-Rex.  Isn’t he everyone’s favorite dinosaur? He was the king of his day and can move forward and backward in a lifelike manner as well as open and close its mouth. The glowing eyes and lifelike sounds created by this dinosaur will instill fear in everyone around!  Maybe a slight exaggeration, but one likes to think so.

 

Last, in my dinosaur findings is the infrared Triceratops.  He can move forward and backward and opens and closes his mouth. The eyes glow and has life-like sounds.  Bonus, value the cats go crazy when these toys go into action.  I think these fellas will be a welcome part of anyone’s toy box (or shelf).    This one as well as T-Rex have simple controllers easy enough for a child to operate.

 

 

Last, perhaps not prehistoric but then again, who knows.  This is the cutest little quadcopter.  The Syma X1 Bee Gyro RC Quadcopter Toy.  The stability in flight and simplified professional 3D maneuvers includes flips, rolls, and more.  The latest 3-axis flight control system, with adjustable gyro sensitivity, permits a super stable flight.  Kinda sounds like a bee in flight.  Functions include up, down, turn left, turn right, forward, backward, and 360° turns.

 

At first I was afraid this was too “kid” oriented but aren’t we all kids after all?  I think I have a Peter Pan complex; unfortunately I did grow up but not out of childhood?  Well, have fun, until my next blog.  Happy RC’ing.

This completes my list of RC Drones with camera. Quadcopters are the most exciting invention which is becoming well  known to many people. There are several reasons why many individuals enter into flying a drone with camera. In particular  concerning barrel rolls, high-speed maneuvers, and stunts. For others, it is pertaining to having a weekend pastime that will help them get-away for some hours. However, there are also the people that fly since they simply just like aerial photography. In case, you get into this classification, you have probably inquired your-self whatever the perfect camera drone is. With so much review sites out, it would be difficult to prefer which RC drones with cameras will definitely be worth its price. below we are going to highlight different RC drones with camera models that we feel are the best options for flyers passionate about aerial photography. In case compiling this quadcopter with camera reviews, we followed an exact list of requirements for considering which of them were the best:

 

6)Yuneec Q500+ Typhoon
The Typhoon Q500+ by Yuneec comes to RTF as among the top drones for sale with camera. Its HD camera can shoot 16 MP still pictures and 1080P footage at 60 frame rate, with a freshly designed lens which causes less still distortion. The quad also depends on an FPV stream to the 5.5-inch display on your transmitter. The Yuneec Q500+ is an effective remote control quadcopter with camera.


7)Syma X5C
The Syma X5C Quadcopter is a fantastic beginner model. Although, it is also  incredibly cost-effective.  Its two-megapixel camera is not HD resolution by any standards, it is actually a good  buy. The video is good. Keep in mind that a drone with a camera has to offer the superior stability. That is precisely what the Syma X5C offers. Because of its portability (about three ounces), it is not a stable flyer in strong winds. Nevertheless, whenever breeze conditions are smooth, beginners should not have any issues recording extremely good aerial video.

 

 


8)UDI U818A
The UDI 818A Quadcopter is a good entry-level drone.  You can record different aerial photography without the regular concern of damaging your model. In theory, UDI company markets that the U818A Drone offers high-definition resolution recording features.  That it is a far-fetched claim. Obviously, the camera resolution is okay. However, it is certainly not HD content. It is not the top RC drone with camera on this countdown, but it surely shows up pretty near. For its low selling cost, it is really a good way to have some practical experience with aerial photography.

9) Hubsan X4 H107D
The Hubsan X4 H107D model offers First-person view (FPV) capabilities as well as superior video quality. Therefore, it surely considered as one of the leading drones with camera for sale. The drone’s First-person view setup allows you to record aerial video without having to actually “watch” your drone. On its controller (transmitter), there is a colored LCD monitor which shows you, live, what its three-megapixel video camera is seeing. Priced below $100, it is absolutely among the affordable FPV models on the marketplace. Another extra advantage is its range, which can be around 100 meters ( 328 ft).
