Mar 27, 2017 06:44 AM EDT

In today's world, you must have heard about the "unmanned aerial vehicle" or popular known as "drone", especially if you work in the photography business. Not only has that it helped to capture the scene from the unimaginable perspective with easiness, a drone can also help to save cost from hiring an expensive helicopter to shoot the aerial view.

There are quite a few of drone brands out there, and just like most gadgets today - expensive drones are produced by big names in the field such as DJI or GoPro. Most of the high-end drones come with a dedicated controller to manage the flight, because of the drone specifications which require special care. However, toy class fly units use nothing more than just an app and a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection. Let's take a look at the top 3 best on the market today.

Parrot Bebop 2

The Bebop 2 is one of the newest models created by Parrot. The company is known to produce some great ideas and deliver a premium experience to their customers. The Bebop 2 features a number of autonomous flying modes with a decent camera. Although there is a controller to control the drone, the Bebop 2 can be flown with your smartphone - through the app called FreeFlight 3. While the app lets you control the drone straight away, there are some modes that can only be unlocked through payments.

Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spider

This car-looking quadcopter is also a product from Parrot that features some unique functions to deliver a great flight experience. Unlike a regular drone, the Rolling Spider is equipped with large wheels that can spin along, to provide a new layer of safety to indoor flight. The wheels allow it to scoot along the floor when landing - a useful feature that can protect the drone from crashing.    

DBPower UDI 818A

This drone is compatible with Virtual Reality (VR) goggles and although it is less capable than the DBPower U842, it offers a smoother flight for better aerial footage and most importantly, it can be controlled by a smartphone. The U818A also came with a dedicated controller itself.
