Again, it really all depends on what drone you choose. Different drones range from being fairly easy to fly, to fairly difficult to fly. It really all depends on what kind of drone you get and how much you are willing to spend.
A lot of the higher-end drones on the market have many features that will assist you in flying your drone. For instance, some drones have automatic take-off and landing features, where with the click of a button (or in some cases, swiping on your mobile device) will get your drone off the ground or have it land in the open space beneath it.)
Perhaps the most helpful feature on some higher-end drones is their ability to hover in mid air when you let go of the controls. Basically, this means that if you are flying and don’t like the direction you are headed or have become confused on the orientation of your drone, you can let go of the control sticks and the drone will simply float in mid-air and remain in place until you take the controls over again.
Also, many higher-end drones will allow you to select automatic waypoints and the drone will use GPS to navigate to those waypoints and you don’t have to control it at all.
On the other hand, though, some of the cheaper “drones” on the market are more difficult to fly, as they have less features. And, even the higher-end drones aren’t prone to getting a little squirrely on you… Simply Google “drone crash” or search for the same term on YouTube and you will see many videos of drone flights gone wrong.
Ultimately, though, whether you purchase a high-end drone that is easier to fly, or a cheaper drone that requires some skill, you definitely need to understand what it means to fly safely before you head out to fly for the first time and you should always err on the side of caution when flying.
