I have reached the entry on my bucket list that deals with drones. I have never flown one before; but now it is time to try. A few days ago, I started my Internet/YouTube research to find the best drone to fit my needs. I initially set a limit of $200 for myself to spend. That limit didn't last very long as I watched the different videos of various drones and their capabilities. I am one of those people with the "for just a few dollars more, I can add this feature" attitude. Well, I now find myself looking at drones in the $500-800 price range. Someone needs to stop me before I contact the Air Force Surplus Sales Agency. Seriously, I know that a few guys on GT have drone experience; and I would appreciate your comments on selection of a first purchase drone. My primary desire for a drone is to overfly and take movies of what once was a beautiful golf course in my subdivision. I played the course almost every day when it was open; so I remember what it looked like then. The course has been closed for five years; and I would like to document what it looks like now. To do that, I need a drone with longer range and out of sight flight capability. So far, the DJI Mavic Mini has caught my attention at $499; but for an additional $300, I can get the Mavic Air 2 which has a better camera, collision avoidance, and other advanced features. I'm open to other suggestions from some of you guys with more knowledge of drones.
