Giving a drone for Christmas can be an excellent idea for those who enjoy the outdoors, experiences and above all, photography and video . Drones are incredible gadgets that have undergone spectacular development in recent years. Thanks to this rapid evolution , their prices have fallen substantially, and there are currently very affordable equipment. Next, we will present some interesting proposals if you are thinking of giving a drone this Christmas , as well as some of its essential accessories .
What must be taken into account before giving a drone as a gift?
- Maintenance and accessories: before buying a drone, you have to take into account the number of accessories and the availability of spare parts that the model we want to buy has. We should always have a few batteries, spare propellers and even the possibility of getting insurance against accidents.
- Legality: in the same way, it is very important to know the regulations of our country and our locality before flying a drone for the first time. There may be a limitation by weight of the drone, by height, power and even by the age of the pilot. And of course, in many cases you will have to get a license to be able to fly it.
- The fun is very short: in most teams you will have very short flights, less than 30 minutes, so having extra batteries is almost a must.
DJI Mini 2
This model is the second generation of the lightest drone from the DJI brand, the leader in the drone market. It retains its main characteristic compared to the first version, and that is its weight . With only 249 grams , there is a large list of countries in which we will not have to inform the authorities of the possession of the drone or pay any type of administrative fee or license.
The Mini 2 is slightly more expensive than the original. It has a flight autonomy of 21 minutes and has substantially improved its range thanks to OcySync 2 technology. Regarding the camera, it can record in 4K resolution at 30 frames per second and can take 12 megapixel photographs .
Accessories for DJI Mini 2
The DJI Mini 2 is also sold in a kit called Fly More , which includes a large number of accessories such as three batteries , three spare propellers , a small hub for bidirectional charging , a briefcase and various spare parts.
The Tello is a much simpler and cheaper piece of equipment that is intended for beginners . Each battery has an autonomy of 13 minutes . Its camera is not really spectacular, although it is good enough to hang out with 720p video quality and 5 megapixel photos . The strong point of this team are its protected propellers , which guarantee that our inexperience does not end up causing damage to other people or to the drone itself.

In a much more advanced field is the DJI Air 2S , which has many improvements over the Air 2 (which is still a fully recommended equipment today). This new model is equipped with a one-inch sensor that offers video in 5.4K resolution and 20 megapixel photos . It also offers us the possibility of manipulating any camera control manually, as well as recording using professional video algorithms such as D-Log.
It is one of the easiest drones to fly on the market, and its flights last 31 minutes with its original battery.
Accessories for DJI Air 2S
