    READ THIS BEFORE YOU WATCH THE VIDEO AND POST A SILLY COMMENT. If you want to know the PRICE of each drone or the SPECS of each drone, you have to watch the DETAILED REVIEW of the drone which can be found in the Links below this video.

    Hey captain drone, any suggestions on the cheapest drone for drone surf fishing? Basically drag line out, drop 200 yards out. Come back….just has to be powerful enough to handle fishing weight's. Any suggestions?

    Aspiring YouTuber: I’m trying to capture great aerial shots of cities, farmland, and beaches in the highest quality possible without breaking the bank. This video is a big help but I still find it hard to make a decision. Any suggestions for my desired shots?

    Hi Captain Drone, I'm looking for a drone in $100-$200 range that can carry my 360° camera (Insta360 One X, 115 grams). Right now I'm using Mavic Air (first model) but the camera is relatively heavy for the drone and the flight time becomes 10 minutes or less. I want a bigger drone with good flight time (> 20 min), reliable GPS, and a controller with good range. But I will use the drone's camera only for navigating, so I don't need a good camera on the drone. What would you recommend?

    Captain: Enjoy your drone stuff but you seem to focus on drones that require an "expensive" smart phones. Some of us don't even own or want a smart phone, much less an expensive one. How 'bout some reviews of inexpensive zFPV drones that come with their own screens or goggles. I have been pretty happy with my Hubsan 502S and a very inexpensive Mini Orion (less than $50) both of which came with controllers that have video screens. Both are now "very old" technology and there must be some modern equivalents. Thanks for all you do for the community!
