Your drone has a remote controller that you can use to operate it. This handy device resembles a gaming controller with buttons and joysticks that perform various functions.
Drones have become smarter and much easier to fly than before. It might only take a few days for you to become confident and proficient at flying a drone if you practice often. However, depending on the type of drone and what you are buying it for, it may be harder to learn. For example,…

Most of our drones don’t require any assembly or setup and are ready to fly right after unboxing. However, you might need to charge the battery, fix the propellers in place, or connect the drone to the controller before flying. A few other drones might require assembly before you can fly them.
In theory, depending on your drone’s range, you can fly as high as 5km. However, depending on the regulations in your area, you can’t fly your drone above 120m unless you have special permission from the relevant authorities.
How long your drone can fly depends on the flight task, battery capacity, payload weight, temperature, and wind velocity. The heavier the load or stronger the wind, the more power the drone will consume in a given period. Generally, drones last an average of 15 to 25 minutes before their batteries run down.
You can only use your drone in the rain if it is waterproof. Otherwise, there’s a high risk of water damaging your drone. If you’re a drone photographer that’s tempted to capture epic shots in the rain, think about the poor visibility and strong winds that might come along.
