Why Everyone in Their 20’s Should Buy a Drone


1. It’s the future

So you are thinking you should buy a drone, huh? The FAA estimates that about 7,500 drones will take flight for commercial use by 2018. Before you know it, drones will be flying all across the sky. These machines are the future, and so are you. So why not learn how to fly one now? You can put yourself ahead of the curve if you start today. Now, let’s take it a step further. If you get into drones at the beginning of the trend, it can lead to business opportunities as the market grows. Drones are brand new and the market is starting to take off. We recommend learning on UDI U818A, it is the perfect beginner drone at an affordable starting point.


2. You should buy a drone because you know technology

Let’s be honest, you know more about technology than the average person. You are a part of the millennial generation. Our lives are constantly surrounded by this kind of stuff. Computers, cameras, video games, etc. We know you’ll be able to learn to fly and upload footage no problem. When we purchased our first quadcopter, it only took a couple hours to fully understand the operation. We had absolutely no previous flying experience. Within a day, we were already capturing decent footage. Check it out below.

You are the exact kind of person who should should buy a drone! So don’t let your fear of learning the technology be a reason not to.

3. Smartphones

You’ve got a smartphone or tablet, don’t you? Or at least access to one? In this day in age it’s seems like almost everyone has one. Well a lot of drones like the Phantom 4 are compatible with smartphones. Watch all the footage from your phone as it’s being taken in the sky. Allow it to guide you through flight.

We understand that most of you are just finishing up with college or you’re only on your first or second job so money can be an issue. People are always shocked when we tell them that our UDI U818A only cost $70. It comes equipped with a camera and just about anyone can fly it! You would be surprised at how cheap most of the beginner drones actually are. Some are as low as $30. Just lay off a few 30 racks and you’ll have a drone in no time.
