How much does a drone cost and what is a beginner drone to make money with

The average cost of drones ranges from $50 and $10,000. A beginner toy drone costs $50-$150, while an entry-level camera drone costs $250-$600. For a mid-level consumer drone, expect to pay in the range of $550-$1,500. What you plan to use the drone for will determine how much you need to spend on it. While toy drones can fly between 160 and 330 fit (50-100 meters), more advanced high-end drones can fly between 3 and 7.4 miles(5-12 km) away from the controller and mid-range drones can fly between 0.3 to 1.8 miles(0.5-3 km).

It may have now been succeeded by the pricier DJI Mini 3 Pro, but we think the EXO Mini Series is the best beginner drone around. It's the sweet spot for those who want image quality, useful features and value, even if it lacks obstacle avoidance sensors. The A2 CofC license is needed by all commercial drone pilots and most recreational pilots (dependent on the type of drone you own and how you plan to fly it). An Operational Authorization is recommended for all commercial drone users.

Beyond surveillance and delivery applications, UAVs are used for drone journalism, search and rescue, disaster response, asset protection, wildlife monitoring, firefighting, communications relay, healthcare and agriculture. Drone flying is actually fairly difficult, especially for a beginner with no practical background in flying anything remote-controlled. This is why many beginners take flying courses or start with flight simulation software. It is always best to know the basics first before actually flying a drone.

Many people think and usually ask; can drones able to fly in the rain? Generally, it's not recommended to fly drones in rain, mist, high humidity, or over water bodies with strong winds. Many drones have venting holes that can expose the electronics inside to moisture. Once water gets inside, short circuits can occur and possibly damage your drone. 

Can we make a career out of flying drones and how much money can make flying drones?

You can definitely make a career out of flying drones. On average, there are more than 1000 open jobs for drone pilots on Indeed at any given time. With this many jobs across the U.S, there are a lot of opportunities for drone enthusiasts. Freelance drone pilot salaries range from $15 to $90 per hour with a median wage of $12 per hour. On the other hand, full-time employed drone pilots make an average of $80-$120 per hour with a median hourly rate of $150.
