Starter Drone for College Certificate

Recommended Posts


I'm looking at earning my FAA-issued Part 107 Certificate at my local college while working on an Unmanned Aircraft Systems Certificate. As part of flight training, if the school's drones aren't available, I would need to acquire my own. Here are their requirements for the drone:

--  Meets part 107 requirements and is registered with the FAA
--  Has an internal or gimballed payload with camera and video capabilities
--  Has ability to fly for a minimum of 18 minutes on a single battery
--  Has telemetry and location data (GPS and Profile) readily available

While this site recommends the DJI Mavic 2 Pro as a top choice, what would you recommend for a cheaper option that would still meet the school's requirements?
