Drones have gained immense popularity all around the world. Although they were first intended as a commercial toy, with the wide range of advanced features installed in new drones, they are used by almost everyone. The camera quality in some high-end drones available today is absolutely stunning. These drones have provided new range of possibilities for the creative minds that want to view the world from a different angle.

High-end drones with HD cameras are not within everyone’s budget, but thanks to YouTube, no one has to miss out on the videos captured with amazing drones from whole new angles. You will be amazed to see the world from a bird’s point of view. There are hundreds of YouTube channels dedicated to drones. Some feature the latest and best drones on the market. There are also channels focused on keeping the world up to date with the new range of possibilities for capturing photos and videos via drones.

The number of channels about drones on YouTube shows that drones are the new favorite toy among both amateur and professional photographers and videographers.

Other interesting types of drones you will see on YouTube include military-style drones, ambulance drones. If you are in the mood for some fun, then you will also enjoy checking out videos like drone fails, drones in wildlife, drones in public and much more.

Here is a brief list of some of the drones that have been featured on YouTube videos.

Ambulance Drone

This is one of the first drones that grabbed my interest when I started searching for drones on YouTube. There is a neat little video on how the ambulance drone works. The project was created by Alec Momont with the goal of helping the world and reducing the fatality risk as a result of health issues. The design of this drone looks good, and Alec claims the lightweight drone can fly at 100 km/hr.

Although it surely looks like it could be useful, implementing out the drone service globally might take decades. Furthermore, it’s definitely got plenty of challenges and room for improvement.

Inspire 1

The Inspire 1 is one of the best drones out there at present. It’s got a wide range of features and it’s definitely a high-end product with hardly any competition. One of its most notable features is the hi-def camera that can record in 4K. Also, the camera is able to capture in 360 degrees. The battery life of this unit is also better than most drones with a camera.

Hexo +

The Hexo + is another must-have drone in today’s market. It’s essentially for daredevils, and it has been designed to successfully film action sports from an aerial view. The gadget has been programmed such that it will follow you anywhere while filming everything from an aerial view. It’s definitely one for professional action sports filmmakers who are looking to capture every moment without having to be there themselves.



The Phenox R/C drone features a compact design and is not that expensive either. The unit is intuitive, and it will allow you to control the drone via hand signals and sound. The drone is intelligent, interactive and even programmable. It’s a breakthrough on future drones that won’t need any sort of controllers.



This is one of the best drones on the market at present. It offers magnificent value for its price. The whole drone can be taken apart or assembled within a minute. The package also includes a backpack carrying case to fit everything you need. You can attach cameras with ease, and it is packed with advanced features for amazing filming. You can even control multiple drones at the same time, via the same controller. This allows you to film the same scenes from multiple vantage points. Also, you can do everything with your smartphone, so you don’t even need to pay for a controller.


Other Drones

You can find all kinds of drones on YouTube, from tiny drones to the huge drones, and from drones designed for filming to those equipped with machine guns ( well, you may have to stay from these, though! ). People from all over the world have been fascinated with drone technology for quite some time now, and you will find videos from everywhere. Apart from the commercial drones listed above, other fascinating drones to check out include military drones. Some of these drones are adopted from the real-life quadcopters to look exactly like the real thing. There are novelty items, and there are also drones that have been equipped with BB guns.

For Beginners

You have got everything on YouTube, and when I say everything, I do mean everything. If you are a beginner, the videos you will find about the drones listed above will probably be too advanced for you. Don’t worry, there are videos specially designed for beginners. You can learn pretty much everything about drones on YouTube. Also, there are plenty of drone buyer’s guides to help you pick out the best drone, depending upon your budget, needs, and experience level.


Seeing these drones on YouTube is truly a satisfying experience, even if you can’t afford one. The technology today was probably unimaginable just a few decades ago, and it seems like the world of RC drones is just getting started. It would be really cool to see what the future holds. The world is definitely getting smaller and smaller with the growing rise in technology, and these RC drones are probably what mobile phones were back in the 90s.

There are definitely plenty of perks if one can use technology right. There is no telling what the future holds.
