    Have you flown a drone before?

    I’ve had a Phantom and an Inspire 2.

    I really wouldn’t suggest going to an Inspire as a novice, get some practise first as if it goes wrong that a lot of money down the pan.

    Depends what you're doing with it.
    Videos and images?
    Racing?
    Wear a VR and fly it?

    Then you need a Reaper or a Global Hawk, a team of Marine Corps and a remote impenetrable bunker.

    What kind of drone? An fpv racing drone or a video drone? If fpv racing I'd go for one of the micro brushed drones, small fast cheap and powerful and can take lots of crashes
