Something is not right with the drones I bought, can i return it?

It’s very safe to buy on Amazon and as someone who buy on amazon on a regular basis (not only drones – but everything almost) I never had any issue with them. they have a great customer support team and if something is not right with your order – they will always have your back.

What about buying a second hand drones?

As a general rule we recommend buying a new drones if possible. the price difference is not that huge and the added security you get when you get a full warranty on your new drones is a huge buying factor in our eyes

What are the ranking factors you used to make your best drones list?

we looked into many different factors when listing our top drones. one crucial factor was comparing the price to value aspect. how much exactly we are getting for our money when buying this specific drones. that was a big one. we also looked into various other factors, such as review score, features, and comparing all the drones with each other.
