Best Drone Accessories
Posted on November 16 2015
There’s a wide range of drone accessories to choose from, most of which are pretty darn nifty. Some are of course better than others, but the high-quality options make operating your drone and taking images/videos a whole lot cooler. Let’s check out a few of the best drone accessories on the market today:
Quadcopter LED Blue Light Kit Strip
A DJI accessory for the brand’s Phantom 3 drone, this super-cool option allows you to fly your drone at night without wondering where the heck it went. Attaching the accessory to the Phantom 1 makes it light up in bright blue, though it will contribute to battery drainage. However, if you’re big on flying your quadcopter at night, this is great thing to have.
Zenmuse H3-3D Gimbal
Some drone accessories for the Phantom 2, the Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal is for the GoPro Hero3 camera. A three-axis, high-performance gimbal offering fantastic camera stability, it’s compatible with DJI control systems and is made of strong yet lightweight aluminum alloy material. It comes with free hardware and software tuning, and provides “smooth aerial creativity.”
GoPro Hero4 Black Edition
Hailed as “the most advanced GoPro drone camera ever,” the GoPro Hero4 Black Edition offers dramatically-improved image quality and “two times more powerful processing with two times faster video frame rates.” A (naturally) high-resolution camera, it offers 4K30 and 2.7K50 video, and a high frame rate of 1080p120 video. The result? Ridiculously-stunning images and videos.
Gimbal Dampening Rubber Isolators H3-2D
One of the cheapest drone accessories you can buy, these dampening rubber isolators ensure your camera stays in solid place on its gimbal. If increasing camera stability is an issue for you, consider screwing these things on your quadcopter’s gimbal and see if they don’t help a whole lot.
