Best Travel Drone

Traveling with a drone is becoming more common – however it can be quite a big investment. You also need to find a travel drone that doesn’t take up too much space! That’s why we’ve put together a list of the best travel drones you can buy for any budget.

There are a ton of different drone brands available, and while some of the cheap ones might look decent, they might become a serious risk during flights. That’s why we’ve recommended what we believe to be the best drone brand – DJI – who are the leaders in the industry.

If you’re taking a trip that requires airplanes, make sure that you carry your drone on with you. It’s highly likely that it will get damaged if left in your suitcase. It’s also recommended to check the areas regulations before traveling – just to make sure it’s OK!

DJI Mavic Mini – Best Budget Travel Drone

This drone is definitely the best for beginners and for travel. The Mavic Mini weighs sub-250g and folds up into a tiny package – which makes it easy to pack in your backpack.

While it doesn’t support 4k video (1080p at 60fps), the Mavic Mini captures stills at the full 12MP resolution and has a fly time over 30 minutes, which is decent for a travel drone of this size.


DJI Mavic 2 Pro – Best Travel Drone

If you can afford the extra space in your backpack or want 4k video, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro is worth the upgrade and comes in at around 900 grams.

DJI have packed in a 20MP Hasselblad L1D-20c gimbal camera that takes gorgeous stills and can also shoot 10-bit 4k video. It works wonders in low-light and is the best travel done we have personally used.

While this is a consumer drone, it certainly has some professional features, which is why we believe the DJI Mavic 2 Pro is the best travel drone available.

However, before making the investment, it’s important to note that the DJI Mavic 3 is likely to be released later this year, and will have many technical improvements over the DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro is no doubt the best travel drone available on the market, providing high quality photographs and video recording.

Now that you’ve considered a travel drone, it’s time to find a cheap travel destination that you can visit later this year or even start adding to your travel bucketlist in 2021!
