What is the best drone to buy?
DJI are working constantly to improve their range of drones available for users.
They are the leading supplier of drones in the market place today.
With Christmas just a few months away it is a very good time to think about what to buy that special person in your life who has everything.
Perhaps you have a son or daughter who would like to cultivate an interest in photography, or you have a farmer in the family and you would like to help make their work load a little lighter.
Whatever the reason there are many different types of drones available to suit your requirements.
On my website I have focused mainly on the application of drones in the agriculture sector but there are many more uses for them. I will list some below.
- Real Estate Agents: To get great photos of the property you want too sell, drones will give you a distinct advantage over your competing agents. It is much cheaper than hiring a helicopter to do the same and you can control it yourself to get the perfect shot. It may be the difference between making a sale or not making a sale.

- Travel Agents.: There is no better way to view an area you want to promote than using a drone to capture the perfect vision of it. One picture is worth a 1000 words they say so one good aerial photograph is worth more than a long spiel of waffle trying to promote a property.
- Wedding Photographers. A drone will give you cutting edge advantages to capture those moments in a wedding in an outdoor setting that cannot be achieved at ground level. It will add an extra dimension to the range of photographs you have for the couple to choose from for their album.

- Bird watchers Fly above an eagles nest and capture incredible images of the young eagles during the various stages in the nest to when the mother throws them out to learn to fly. Take your drone to explore areas where you cannot reach on foot to be in the unique position to get images that no one else can unless they have a drone too.
- Farmer and Agricultural workers of all fields, Whether you raise cattle, sheep or goats or whether you are cropping or market gardening a drone is a wonderful advantage to check what is happening on the farm. You can see where those wild dogs or foxes are getting through the fence to attack your young lambs or kid goats or chickens. You can use them to move a mob of cattle or sheep. You can monitor the progress of your crops and be aware of areas of weed infestation.
- Traffic accidents For the police or ambulance drivers to get a quick understanding of the extent and nature of an accident a drone can send back information in a very short amount of time with the potential to save a life. This is also helpful when someone has fallen down a cliff face or is in some other predicament a drone can be first on the scene and can relay information back to rescuers in a short amount of time giving the victim a sense that help is on the way and perhaps saving a life.
- Teachers The education of the future generation is greatly enhanced by the use of drones to explore a theme to its fullest and give children a real perspective of what is happening on the ground and in their world. If teachers really want to motivate their students they need to use modern up to date technologies to stimulate their interest and engage them fully in the learning experience.

- Lifesavers at the beach What an advantage to be able to see the presence of sharks before they are among the swimmers in the local beach on a hot Summers day. You could even use a drone to transport a life saving device to a victim caught in a rip tide while help is on the way.
