Check out the 6 best UAV accessories that you must have to make your flying experience even better. Here are six UAV accessories you cannot be without in 2016.
Prop guards are a must, especially if you are flying around people or objects. Propeller guards protect your propellers during collisions, they help you fly with certainty, whether you are a drone newbie or an advanced quadcopter pilot. Ideal for drone beginners, they also help deflect the drone after a collision. These blade protectors are a colorful way to customize your drone with a variety of colors and patterns. Always bring extra propellers as they may vibrate off, crack or break after periods of running at full speed.
Bring along a few extra battery packs so you don’t have to wait around for an hour or so between flights. Soon, there may solar charging batteries or lithium ion batteries that give several hours of flight time!
Your new drone may come with quality landing gear built-in. However, some drones need extra landing gears that are higher, wider & lighter.
Micro SD Cards
Have you heard of the term dronography? Most people buy drones for videography or still photography and if your UAV comes equipped with a camera, make sure you have plenty of Micro SD Cards to capture that incredible drone footage. There are tons of micro SD cards available, but you need one that’s fast enough to capture your video without dropping frames or running out of space.
Drone Carrying Case or Backpack Bag
Not everyone needs a backpack, but it’s smart to buy a carrying case of some kind. That way, nothing will get lost or damaged while traveling. Try to buy a carrying case that is exactly for your drone’s size. A good case should include a foam cutout cushion specifically for your model as well as storage space for a camera and all accesories. You can also protect your investment with a universal drone carrying case.
LED light Kit
If you want your drone to light up the night sky (and trick some UFO watchers), then fitting LED lights is the way to go. A drone light kit is a great accessory for drone racing and flying your drone at night. Drone lights at night are important so that you can see where your drone is flying. Illuminate your drone when night flying to add some sparkle and flair to your cool new toy.
Other cool drone accessories for 2016 include, decal sets, crash packs and performance gears. While you may have difficulty finding accessories for lower-end drones, if you have a medium to high-priced UAV, you will find several model-specific accessories to make flying more enjoyable. You can even add a flight recorder that allows you to review your flight later in 3D.
