DRONE VARIATIONS

Drones for Racing - A racing drone is designed to be used with racing purposes in mind, hence the name. Such a drone can travel about 40 to 60 miles per hour in some of the best cases. Also they are fast and fun to play with.

Drones that are ready-to-fly - Ready-to-Fly drones. That is, you can get such a drone to start working for you right after you buy it, take it out of the box and charge it up. This is typically reserved for smaller quadcopters and is for those who are new to the world of drone flying.

Helicopter Drone - Most drones are made with 4 rotors, a helicopter drone is different in that it uses a single rotor similar to what you’d get out of a typical helicopter. That is, the drone is like a remote-control helicopter. It is ideal for when you want to keep a drone still in the air for an extended period of time.

Delivery drones - Delivery drones are designed to transport materials. A delivery drone will work with an anchor or basket-like feature on the bottom part. This will be linked up to the drone’s body to allow it to carry items of all sorts.

Devices that support a different fueling system (gas-powered, nitro-powered)

Gas Powered Drones - Batteries are typically used to get most drones to run. However, some drones can work with other materials to power them up. Like the name suggests, a gas-powered drone is a drone that runs with gas instead of an electric battery.

Drone with camera - While cameras on many drones are designed to take videos, photography drones are designed with still images in mind. That is, they can come with their own built-in cameras designed to take pictures.

Trick Drones - Trick drones are designed to be used as smaller toys. That is, they are items that can pull off barrel rolls, flips and other quick and easy maneuvers.  These smaller drones are typically a few ounces in weight and only about ten inches in length at the most. Also, while some of these drones might come with their own built-in cameras, those cameras are typically very small. They may not record things in HD quality either.

 Tricopter - three propeller, Quadcopters- four propellers - The quadcopter is the first and most popular drone you can find in the market. This is an option that uses 4 rotors organized in a square pattern. The rotors are arranged onto each individual corner of the quadcopter’s body. This allows for an even amount of support to get the drone off the ground and to make it turn in different directions.  Hexacopter – six blades and  Octocopter - 8-rotors

Drones that support a GPS system - A GPS drone is a model that will link up to GPS signals from satellites. This kind of drone uses this as a mean of identifying where it can go or where its base (or point of origin) is. These drones can return to you in the event that it gets out of your control reach or it starts to run out of battery power.


Drone without GPS – These are part of the RAFAGA (Robust Autonomous Flight of unmanned aerial vehicles in GPS-denied outdoor areas).  RAFAGA-enabled drone uses its onboard camera to identify buildings or other features on the ground, matching them up with their aerial images on the satellite map.  Not only is the technology reportedly more reliable than GPS, but the required hardware (cameras, accelerometers and gyroscopes) is also simpler and less expensive.
