A little word for those aspiring to own a drone someday…
Three types of drones
Ready to fly, doesnt require any assembly or setup, but you may have to do some simple things like charge it up, install the propellers and connect the controllers. This is the best class of drone to acquire for beginners.
Bind and fly, usually comes completely assembled, but without a controller, meaning you have to use a previous controller or a compatible one separately. This is crucial because in the analog days if you had a transmitter and a receiver which are both running on the same frequency, they were almost guaranteed to work together. This is not so with the digital communication they must use the same manufacturers protocol.
Almost ready to fly, they usually dont come with a transmitter or receiver and might require partial assembly. An Arf drone might also leave out components like motors, ESCS or even the flight controller and battery. Always pay extra caution to the ARF description. It is strongly recommended.
