Hey guys, welcome back. Today we’re going to be taking a look at some of the must have drone accessories to help improve your flying experience. Drones are bloody awesome; I think we all agree on that. Sometimes though, with short battery times and difficulties popping up all over the place, drone piloting can be hard. Thankfully there are some accessories out there that can both improve your flying experience and the quality of footage that you can capture.
The first accessory I want to talk about today is a tablet. I know how hard it can be trying to find the best DJI Compatible tablet, but if you stick with an apple iPad Mini 4 you can’t go wrong. A couple of other good tablets are the iPad Pro and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.
The next must have accessory that I would like to talk to you about today is a backpack or case. Depending on how much equipment you have and what sort of travelling you will be doing will determine which backpack or case that you need. Off the top of my head the Manfrotto D1 Backpack is a great case for the Phantom Models. Anbee also do a couple of good cases for the DJI Mavic Pro and the DJI Spark that are worth checking out. If you want a backpack recommended for a specific drone, drop me a message in the comment section below and I’ll see what I can do for you.
Another must have drone accessory is spare batteries. I cannot stress enough how helpful these are and how much they improve your drone piloting experience. When I got my first drone it took me a while to get a spare battery and I can honestly say that there is nothing more infuriating than having to stop filming because you ran out of battery. Or when you come across a new awesome location to realise that you ran out of battery 3 awesome locations ago. Anyway, I recommend buying 3 of these, that way you’ll get a decent amount of flight time and won’t be getting frustrated like I was.
One of the less common accessories, which I honestly think is really important, is a landing pad. I don’t know about you but the idea of landing my drone on sand, snow or mud doesn’t sound too appealing to me. Anything can go wrong and something were to get inside the drone and break I would be pretty gutted. Having a landing pad just provides you with a nice clean landing surface that won’t damage your drone too much if anything were to go wrong.
