    Hello from the UK. :)

    I'm totally new to drone flying and have zero knowledge about them so I need some advice on what drone will be best for my requirements.

    What I'm looking for a basic drone which can be used to take ariel photos. It doesn't need to be anything too fancy so long as it's easy to to use. The photos will be used for making artwork and painting pictures from. The camera doesn't need to be anything special so long as it's reasonable quality and at least 1080 resolution. I'm not sure if a camera that takes still pictures or full motion video will be best for my needs.

    I have no idea how much they cost either. Obviouslly the cheaper the better and I don't mind buying new or second hand.

    Thanks for your help.

    I'd recommend DJI Spark, as it very easy to fly and laso it's tiny :)

    You can go for DJI Mavic, or Parrot Bebop II drone or drone x pro.
    If looking at something on the low budget yet very efficient - the drone x pro is around $99 and it's amazing.

    I have done a LOT of research into this lately and for your situation Steve I would recommend the DJI Spark.
    Significantly cheaper than a Mavic Pro and you aren't paying for features you probably don't need for the foreseeable future.
    Several people I know have them and rate them highly.

    Hmm just realised on a hiding to nothing with that question
    He was last active Jul 25, 2018. So essentially he didn't stick around for more than one response... weird.
