In my last post on the Q500, I mentioned that my brother was headed to Peru in February, 2017. Last night, I talked to him about drones and he really wanted to save some space during his travels, and felt that DJI sized drones (The Q500 included) was going to be just too large for what he wanted. I'm no looking at smaller drones that still do the 4K video and have reasonably long flight times. The Yuneec Breeze might just be the answer...
I've had my eye on the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 for a while now. No, it's not for me. My brother is traveling to Peru in February and wants to take a really nice drone, but also has fears of losing it somewhere in his travels. The Yuneec Q500 is the perfect drone for the trip. Here's why:

The JJRC H26W is a large brushed motor quadcopter capable of flights easily over 100 meters.
Needless to say, just from looking at the quadcopter, there's something really different about this one. It's camera.
Most toy-class drones offer a standard 720P pinhole camera that's either mounted to the belly of the drone, or fully integrated into the body. The JJRC H26W is a bit different as it has a more "professional" camera mount, and remotely adjustable 3mp 720P camera that actually has a wide angle 140° lens!
One of the latest drones that have come to my attention is the UpAir One. This drone is said to be a long range FPV drone that comes with either a 2K or 4K camera that is comparable to a GoPro.
The UpAir one has a very similar body style to a DJI Phantom, and has been on the market since November 2015. The company that produces the UpAir One was bought out around the lunar new year earlier this year and went through a major reorganization to become what it is now.
The reason that's important is because the old company sold the "UpAir Chase One" while under the new company (a hostile takeover from what I understand) it was renamed to "UpAir One", and the latter is what we're looking at in this review.
Awesome looks and great flying sum up the JDX 509G 5.8gHz FPV Quadcopter.
If you want to get into FPV Drone flying, the JDX 509G is a very good place to start. It comes with everything you need to get started, and the drone comes out of the box essentially ready to fly (RTF). Immediately, you find that you just have to charge up the battery, attach the camera and rotor blades and you're good to fly.
Hubsan is first to the market with a toy drone that has GPS and on board camera for about $120
In fact, the performance of the Hubsan X4 H502E is comparable to some $300 drones out there. With longer flight times and amazing accuracy, the H502E is the perfect camera drone for anyone that wants to move from toy class drones into more advanced hobby and professional drones.
The Hubsan X4 H502E is the perfect drone for both beginners and drone enthusiasts alike. It's wide range of features accommodate all skill levels, and with GPS and Altitude hold, the drone is one of the easiest to fly for novices.
