"So many drone makers hike up their prices because they've spent so much building up a big brand name, and yet they're using lower quality components. You're basically just paying for the name", says an engineer at the heart of the SkyCamHD project.
Over the past 12 months we've tested extensively the majority of drones available on the market and have found that, generally speaking, the cheaper the model the less control you have over the drone. Models retailing for under $100 are usually difficult to control, even in only slightly windy conditions; their cameras often provide poor quality video feedback and photography.
TheSkyCamHD is a real game-changer. For the first time, there is a cheaper-priced model on the market, which is nonetheless popular with critics and consumers alike. So is this low-cost drone really as good as the experts say? We managed to get our hands on one to give it a try. Our thoughts? The SkyCamHD team has knocked it out of the park!
