The right drone accessories are necessary to ensure the proper working of your drone and to make it safer and easier to use. The essential add-ons include everything from packing cases to extra propeller sets, gimbal guards, lanyards and lenses for professional aerial photography. Consider factors such as drone design or make and your current photography needs.
A helipad is an important drone accessory that provides a dedicated launching and landing platform for users who operate on the move. Besides offering the challenge of landing on a small target, helipads keep drones clean and safe from weather and environmental elements such as mud and snow. Choose a solid and flat plastic or wood surface to ensure a stable landing and to avoid interfering with the drone’s GPS calibration.
Spare drone batteries or portable units provide additional power to maximize airtime and keep you going. Most drones in the class of RC toys use AA batteries in the remote control, but many other toy primary batteries charge via a standard USB charging port for fast, convenient powering. Fireproof and explosion-proof battery bags are available for safe packing of Li-Po drone batteries to protect the device and the user. The bags have a practical shape that ensures they fit comfortably in backpacks.
Drone cases and backpacks are essential for carrying and transporting drones and other parts and accessories through different hiking trails and terrains. Choose a sturdy storage case that will protect the delicate parts, such as drone propellers, from getting caught and causing irreparable damage.
The FPV system feeds live video signals from the drone camera to a screen or special FPV goggles, providing the ultimate drone flying experience. FPV systems also help keep track of the drone during long-distance flights. Many FPV goggles have a head tracking feature that prompts the camera to rotate and tilt following the motion of your head, thus facilitating better control of image and video angles. The goggles also have a USB port through which you can connect other devices to view the recordings.
A lanyard holds the drone controller securely to ensure that it does not fall from your hands during use. Choose an adjustable lanyard with a tapered width for additional strength, comfort and pressure relief on the neck. This accessory also works well with other hobbies and toys that require controllers, as it frees up the hands for other tasks.
A 256GB card provides the right capacity for high-quality images and long 4K Ultra HD videos, and it also works well in smartphones and game consoles. Some models offer up to 90MBps write speed and 95MBps read speed to ensure quick recording and transferring of files.
