Altitude hold vs. gps drone

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Obviously I’m a noob. Looking to get a drone for my Paranormal Investigation team. I’m down to either the Bugs 3 Pro or the Bayangtoys X21 because they’re budget friendly and can carry a GoPro. My question is... tho the Bugs 3 pro is a gps drone it doesn’t have altitude hold like the X21 does. Do I need altitude hold if I’m not using the drone as a stunt or race drone? Seems like the Bugs 3 Pro is a better name brand but it’s lacking altitude hold. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks

That's pretty cool that you have a paranormal investigation team. Can you actually capture video footage of paranormal activity or are you just looking to scope out areas?

At this point in time we went with the Bayangtoys for the simple fact of it has not only altitude hold but dual GPS, and a GoPro can be mounted to it. As for the images taken with the drone... we have a specially modified GoPro that can take video and pictures in infrared and full spectrum. That being said the drone will serve for preliminary planning purposes prior to an investigation and possibly dusk shots during investigations as to abide by FAA regulations in regards to night flying.

Hope that answers your question...
