There was a time when the idea of getting a 4K-ready drone for a price that didn’t require you to remortgage your home was the stuff of a madman’s dreams, but the rapid advancement of this particular field of gadgetry means such opulence is now well within the grasp of even casual aerial photographers.
Drones like the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K are paving the way for a low-cost revolution by offering professional-standard video recording that doesn’t cost the earth. The Q500 4K captures excellent footage, comes with a wide range of extras and is easy to get in the air – and it offers all of this for a fraction of the cost of its more famous rivals – with some caveats, of course.
Price and availability
If you’re shopping on a budget it’s possible to order the most basic Q500 4K package from as little as $700, but the more feature-rich bundle – which includes a robust flight case and other goodies – retails for around $800 direct from the manufacturer. If you’re in the UK you can expect an almost like-for-like conversion on price, although some retailers are selling the bigger bundle for less than £700.
