Summer has arrived and that means that we have our smartphones working overtime again. But have you seen that ice cream photo from Instagram or are you planning to do something extreme? Then it is worth investing in a drone. We highlight 5 that are perfect for traveling, but can of course also help you with beautiful images at home.
DJI Air 2S
When you talk about drones, you are actually talking about DJI almost immediately. DJI Air 2S is a drone in which everything comes together: it is sturdy, but not too heavy. It shoots great quality footage and includes useful options to help you shoot the best drone video. Even if it is very sunny, because it has an aperture that can adapt to the situation. With the anti-collision mechanism, this is also a drone that even a beginner can handle.

While we can easily fill this article with DJI drones, there are other options that cost significantly less money. Ryze Tello is an example of this, although DJI has helped with this. This drone is less good in wind and only lasts a short time, but it is a drone that is compact, easy to take with you and can even be programmed with Python, among others. It can be controlled via a Bluetooth gamepad or the Tello app.

The lens is lightning fast and captures the most beautiful video images in an instant. Moreover, because it is very light, you are not obliged to register as a drone pilot: it weighs just under 250 grams, making it an ideal drone for people who want to take pictures from above for fun. It also lasts quite a long time: you can fly it for more than half an hour, which makes it a very easy drone without much hassle.

Autel Evo Lite+
Are you bummed that the average drone is empty so quickly? Autel has made one that is right up your alley, if you are willing to pay the purchase amount of about 1250 euros. Autel Evo Lite+ has a battery life of no less than 40 minutes and it is somewhat heavier. This makes it less of a device to shove in your hand luggage, but you can count on great images, even if there is a gust of wind. It films well at night, films well in the sun (thanks to an adjustable aperture), making this a top drone to consider when longer footage is needed.
