Top 3 Recommended Drones for Sale

DJI Phantom 3 Professional


The DJI Phantom 3 Professional comes at the top of our top 3 recommended drones. It comes equipped with almost all of the DJI Inspire 1 features (4K Camera, Lightbridge connection, low flying optical sensors) but it costs roughly $1,600 less! The Phantom 3 Pro is available for sale at $1,259 which is considerable less. You can even buy two of them for the price of an Inspire 1.

This drone has only been launched by DJI a few months ago and has been the most popular by far. It has an integrated 4K camera available at an affordable price, which has attracted a whole new wave of drone flyers. If you are a digital photographer looking to branch out into aerial photography, then this drone is for you. It is also ideal for aerial cinematography, real estate marketing and just about anything you can think of that involves flying and taking pictures.

DJI Phantom 3 Advanced


The Phantom 3 Advanced is the baby Phantom 3 version. The only difference from the Professional quadcopter discussed above is the camera. Instead of a 4K camera, it is equipped with a 1080p camera. Nonetheless, the lens has been improved and the fish eye distortion that irked a lot of Phantom 2 users has now been removed, giving you a flat horizon. Of all drones for sale, this one also comes near the top as it packs a lot of features.

At the price of $999 (click to buy) it is also a bargain as it has most of the important Inspire 1 features such as the Lightbridge connection and the optical sensors. These are extremely useful for low level flying either indoor or outdoor and when GPS signal is not available. We strongly believe that this drone offers best value if you are looking for the latest technology, a solid camera and ease of use and reliability. We have discussed the features in more depth in our 2015 drones for sale guide.

DJI Inspire 1

The DJI Inspire 1 is the queen of all consumer drones. Besides the features discussed above, it also has a detachable 4K camera, foldable landing gear and the ability to use 2 controllers at the same time; one for the drone and one for the camera. This makes it the preferred camera for professional aerial cinematography such as shooting movies or live events such as concerts or racing.
