I bought this drone frankly because it looks so damn cool.

The KF600 feels like a futuristic flying car and the optical flow camera underneath makes it fly very stable, as one should.

The amazing part is that the drone is priced very low and comes with some interesting functions you can toy around with like had gestures. Allthough I only consider them gimmicks.

The camera is pretty solid quality and can even be tilted slightly. I definitely recommend this as a low budget selfie drone and for playing around.

What to look for in A Toy camera drone

Drone stability

When it comes to drones under $50 I don't have the luxury to request any stability, but there are drones like this one that come with Optical flow technology.

KF600: Optical Flow Stabilization

Battery life

Battery life for toy camera drones should be at least 6 minutes per flight.

Take in account spare batteries!

KF600: 9-10min is enough for this size

Range

Flight range can't really be much bigger than 100m at this price.

KF600: 50-70m 

 

Camera

At this price, the standard is 720p camera. You should look for a sample video to check for colors, frame rate drops and if it has a micro sd card slot.

KF600: 720p, no micro SD card slot

KF600 Price and specs

The price is very important when judging any product, and this is no exception.

I ill judge it considering it's in the under $50 category and for that matter, it's a pretty damn good buy.

It unfortunately doesn't come with a micro sd card slot, or else this could have been the complete package.

The specs are what you'd expect, even even more.

Here's what you're getting in the package:

  • quadcopter
  • transmitter
  • spare props
  • prop guards
  • screwdriver
  • 2+ batteries (depending on the package)
  • charger

Camera quality

The camera is 720p as discussed previously, and the image is quite good for the size of this. It also actually can change the angle before flight, but only slightly, facing a bit down.

The drone also can be controlled with a few gestures. Like raising your fist for starting the video or taking photos. These actually work, but I find it easier just to press the button.

Transmitter

KF600

The transmitter is an obvious clone of the DJI mavic one, this time coming with fake antennas on top.

But even so, it's actually pretty good and quite small compared to others, and that's always a good thing.

All the buttons are clearly marked and everything works as intended.

A Very capable optical flow drone under $50

KF600 is a quadcopter that looks a lot like a flying car from the future but instead is a very cheap yet stable toy camera drone. I recommend it as a low budget selfie drone anytime.

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:

how-to-make-money-with-drones

1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

types of drones

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  1.  
  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.

 

How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of DronesGator.com and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
