Commercial UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) is commonly known today as a drone. These are devices that are built as an aerial vehicle without a need of a human-loaded pilot. It uses aerodynamic forces that provide vehicle lift and can be piloted to fly in a certain distance giving you safety instead on going yourself to a specific location.

Types of Drones

Drone is becoming popular nowadays that even kids would want it. While it is sold in the market, there are types of commercial UAV which have different purposes and limits of doing. It is made depending on the consumer’s needs and plans.

  1. Quadcopters

Quadcopters are the first and the most popular drone in the market. As its name implies, it has four rotors organized in a square pattern. The rotors are arranged onto the quadcopter’s individual corner allowing an even amount of support to have the drone fly and go to different directions.

  1. RTF Drones

RTF drones are those types which are Ready-To-Fly. This drones are already assembled and can be used by the moment you bought it and opened its box. This best fits those who are a beginner and new to using drone since they can use RTF for practicing and exploring the nature of how drone works.

  1. GPS Drones

As its name indicates, this is a drone model that links to the GPS signals from satellites. Built-in GPS system in drones is used as a mean of identifying the direction where the drone would go and where it came from. The best thing about these drones is that it has the capability of returning to its origin (where it came from) when it starts to run out of power or if it goes out of your range. This is helpful when you want a drone that will be with you for too long and will not lose its way while using it.

  1. Trick Drones

Trick drones are designed and used as smaller toys with just a few ounces of weight and about ten inches in length. These type of drones can be maneuvered easily and quickly with a small built-in camera just right for its size. Trick drones are also commonly used as a practice buddy for those who are new on using drones.

  1. Delivery Drones

Thinking that drones are limited to aerial photography, these devices can be used for transporting materials which are known as Delivery Drones. An anchor will be linked on the bottom part of the device which will serve as the container to carry items.

  1. Helicopter Drones

Helicopter drones are designed like typical helicopter having a single rotor. This stays in the air for an extended period of time. As to how a real helicopter functions, this has the capability to land easily and stay in one place at a time.

  1. Photography Drones

These drones were designed with still and live images. Photography drones are usually designed with HD cameras with guards around its lenses. The guards help in securing the camera and keeping it away from damage due to weather conditions. This has the ability to keep steady and keeps the image as clear as possible.
