- How high drone can flies
Perhaps drone is the most popular way not only for research or military purpose but also in fields such as campaign and entertainment. This tool is controlled by a remote control and powered by battery system to fly high. A question arises about how high such drone can fly.
When people plan to buy a drone, the altitude it can reach becomes one of considerations. How high can desired drone fly? I will inform you that drone can reach altitude starting from 50 meters to 1 kilometer with range of at least 100 meters to 2 kilometers. These are commonly drones reach we can find in market, however, my friends said that there are specific drones able to reach more than such altitudes. In addition, each of them has flight time ranging from 10 minutes to 26 minutes. Following are some of them:
JJRC H8D is an entry level drone priced under $200 coming with 2MP HD camera capable to provide FPV live feed to LCD screen on its controller top. It communicates on 5,8GHz frequency and its controller use 2,4GHz. You can take it fly to 50 meters with price of $100.
Next is Blad Chroma which can reach 300 meters of height and 25 minutes of flight battery life. it is priced around $400 to $600. In this price segment, Xiro Xplorer Aerial V can be considered. It is priced $500 coming with full FPV camera mounted on 3-axis gimbal. You can fly this up to 600 meters height.
Finally, I would like to inform drones which can fly up to 1000 meters of height. It is Yuneec Q500 4K Typhoon priced around $600 to $1000 that comes with top quality 4K camera mounted on 3 axis gimbal. It is able to take great quality video in 4K resolution but best shooting is at 120FPS slow motion footage. Furthermore, Dji Phantom 4 is the most expensive of all above which can fly well up to FAA 400 feet altitude rule. You can also disable this drone flying more than 500 meters from its control point. To inform you, flying drones more than 500 meters is due to many factors including win blow, and it will be extremely dangerous if operated by inexperienced pilot since it can fall and harm people.
