12 Top Drones With Excellent Cameras, GPS, Autopilot And Low Prices

Walkera Scout X4 With Drone GPS Autopilot and 4k Camera

The top drones reviewed here all have excellent 4k cameras, GPS and autopilot systems giving you many options when it comes to flying, aerial filming and photography.

These drones have incredibly low prices due to the competition in the drone sector.

Along with excellent low prices, these top drones all have 4k cameras and can be flown by pilot manually or on autopilot. A drone flying on autopilot has big advantages over manual flight.  A drone on autopilot can fly a programmed route, called waypoints and take aerial photos or video much better than any pilot can.

This is especially true in difficult weather conditions.  A drone flying in autopilot mode is monitoring and adjusting its position thousands of times per second.  Manual flying will never be able to achieve this flight accuracy.

For aerial photography, it is great to let the drone fly on autopilot on a given route, while you concentrate on working the camera capturing the best of video and stills.

Having a drone with a GPS autopilot flight system and a 4k camera is very  essential for aerial photogrammetry, 3D mapping and multispectral imaging in the agricultural sector.
