Using a remote controlled spy drone may be a conversation that is somewhat controversial, but as long as you’re staying within your the law’s legal limits, you’ll be just fine. Spy drones aren’t exactly used as tools to spy on people, but they can be used to survey your property, for example.
While using an RC spy drone might have you turning your head to look at something else, don’t do that yet. Just because it’s a spy drone doesn’t mean it has nothing else to offer! Besides, drones considered to be spy drones often have some of the best specs. That, or they have a lot to offer in other areas you may be interested in.
Either way, in this review we’ll be going over my favorite spy drone picks. Hopefully, you find one you like and make a purchase. They’re often great for aerial photography and videography, aerial surveillance, and a whole lot more.
As I said previously, I’ll be reviewing my top 5 picks for my all-time favorite spy drones.
If you’ve had a chance to go over the rest of my site, then you’ll know that the AA108 by Altair Aerial is one of my favorite quadcopters out there. It’ll only cost you $130, which is an extremely great deal for the amount of value you’re getting with it.
What I love most about the AA108 by Altair Aerial is the fact that their customer service is sublime. A lot of drone manufacturers have a tendency to fluff their customers off, even though they’re the ones literally keeping these companies in business. I also love the money to value ratio. This is the best quad for your money in terms of quality and overall value.
The 818 Hornet, also from Altair Aerial, is a spectacular quadcopter. It can be yours for as little as $170, which is an awesomely low price for what you’re getting, as it was with the AA108. This manufacturer knows how to deliver.
The 818 Hornet by Altair Aerial is a step up from the AA108, so if you’re looking for a challenge or one that will grow with you where a learning curve is concerned, I highly recommend one of these remote control spy drones.
The F181W by Holy Stone will run you around $120 flat. It comes with some extras, awesome features, and some impressive technical specs.
The F181W by Holy Stone is a great addition to any drone collection, but it’s also one of the best RC spy drones to start a collection with, as well!
The Blackhawk by Altair is an absolute gem of a quadcopter and costs $150. If you have a GoPro model you can set it up with this spy drone and have the best footage of your surveying, photography, whatever the case may be.
GoPro’s are the best action cameras money can buy. If you’re in the market for a drone that can be a camera drone on and off, I highly recommend the Blackhawk by Altair Aerial. The mount for the GoPro is also removable, as well. Either way, the action camera it comes with is well worth the money.
The Bebop 2 by Parrot is the most expensive spy drone on my list, costing $400 on the dot. Even though it’s a tight squeeze budget-wise, it’ll always be one of the best spy drones I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing.
The Bebop 2 by Parrot is last on my list because of its costly price tag, not because it’s garbage. Keep that in mind if you’re about to scroll away. In reality, the Bebop 2 is actually the most technical spy drone on my list.
If you don’t see an answer to your question listed below in my FAQ section, let me know and I’ll do my best to give you one!
Because I don’t want to give you the wrong answers to this question, or misinform you whatsoever, click here for all the information you’ll need on registering your drone, the FAA’s rules and regulations, etc.
If you were required to register your drone and obtain a license then, yes, you absolutely have to carry it with you everywhere you go when your drone is in the air and you are at the controls.
As long as you are not violating another person’s privacy or breaking any laws, you should have no problem using a spy drone. Although, I highly recommend checking up on your local laws before you fly any type of drone, whether it’s a toy or a spy drone, just to ensure you’re safe legally before taking off.
In conclusion, remember to always follow your local laws when using a drone, especially if it’s considered to be a spy drone. You will also need to follow FAA law and regulations, too.
Either way, owning and flying a drone is all about having a fun hobby or whatever your personal case may be. Remember to keep your drone only for fun and not use it to violate the privacy of anyone, such as your neighbors, for example, and stay within your rights and local laws.
