What are PRotocol Drones and how to they compare with competition?

Protocol is a company Based in USA that sell their beginner-targeted drones both on their site and on Amazon.

These are mainly toy drones, usually under $100, but some of them, like the Protocol Galileo can go up to $200.

In my honest opinion, they don't differ much from the competition.

Some of their drones I don't recommend buying actually, and In this article I'll show you what are the best  alternatives for those in that respective price range.

There's also a few that I can safely recommend to buy as they do their job well and are a good offer for the money.

So, let's see which ones win

Protocol Galileo Review - Too expensive?

Battery

10min

Distance

100m

Camera

1080p/Gopro

GPS

No

The Protocol Galileo was one of their first released drones, destined to work as a simple 1080p camera drone.

That's what it basically does, it doesn't have a huge range, no GPS and even no brushless motors, yet it still is around $200 in price.

There's not many places you can find this drone nowadays.

The pacakge does include the GOpro Style camera that can take 8mp stills, and that's why this drone is more expensive than it should. Because the video it takes is really not that bad.

You can actually change the original camera with a GoPro hero 4 or any similar action camera, for better stabilization.

  • Camera is pretty good
  • Works with Go pro zised action cams
  • pretty stable flight
  • Doesn't come with GPS for this price
  • Range is very limited

Best Alternatives to the Protocol Galileo drone

There are two really good alternatives I can think of.

One is simply a great GPS drone under $200 and the other is even cheaper and works perfectly with a Gopro.

Mjx Bugs 3

This is well under the category of drones under $100, yet it has some of the best quality specs around.

  • powerful brushless motors (that can carry more and last more in time)
  • long range of 200m
  • long battery life 15 min
  • very fast
  • can carry a Gopro

JJPRO X5

A drone under $200, but with amazing specs, including GPS and a 1080p cam.

  • powerful brushless motors (that can carry more and last more in time)
  • long range of 200m
  • long battery life 15 min
  • can change the camera angle from controller
  • 1080p footage
  • flight modes like RTH, circle around, waypoints

Protocol Kaptur - GPs Drone

Battery

10min

Distance

100m

Camera

720p

GPS

Yes

Now this is a drone from Protocol that I can get behind of.

It's not something unseen before, but I kinda dig the alien like aspect and the fact that it comes with GPS makes it more reliable and stable in flight.

It does come with features like:

  • Return To Home on low battery
  • Press a button to Return Home
  • Follow me

It also comes with a pair of VR goggles, where you can put your phone and have a more immersive experience. It's going to have some wifi lag, so don't expect much.

The camera can be manually swiveled up and down before launching to change the angle.

  • Good GPS
  • Camera can be swiveled by hand
  • Returns to home automatically
  • follow me function
  • Range is very limited
  • goes 5 m in the air when starting for some reason

Best Alternative to the Protocol Kaptur drone

JJPRO X5

Again, the JJPRO X5 is an amazing camera drone for the price.

  • powerful brushless motors (that can carry more and last more in time)
  • long range of 200m
  • long battery life 15 min
  • can change the camera angle from controller
  • 1080p footage
  • flight modes like RTH, circle around, waypoints

Protocol VideoDrone Xt/Ap

Battery

7min

Distance

60m

Camera

480p

GPS

no

This drone is found under the names of xt or ap, but it's basically the same thing.

The specs aren't that impressive, because this drone is well under $100.

I consider it to actually be a good choice for beginners who want a durable drone they can bash around and take some fun footage with.

The camera isn't high definition, but strangely enough, thanks to the higher FPS and the minimal Wifi lag, the video looks pretty good to me.

In the amazon version it seems to come with 2 batteries, which is a nice addition, along with the 4 gb micro SD card.

So yes, I do actually recommend checking this one out for beginners.

  • Good building materials
  • Decent camera
  • Great Price
  • good package accessories
  • not very big

Protocol Vento Foldable

Battery

8min

Distance

60m

Camera

480p

GPS

no

The protocol Vento drone is the only foldable drone they have, and for that unique fact it makes it quite great, as it's way easier to carry around with you.

It doesn' t come with the ability to record on a micro SD card, but directly on you phone though the app.

It's a great drone for beginners to fly around and test the controls while also capturing some interesting shots.

It doesn't have the audacity to be anything else than a simple drone that looks cool, is built with good materials and folds up.

  • Good building materials
  • Decent camera
  • Great Price
  • not very big

Protocol Galileo Stealth drone

Battery

7min

Distance

60m

Camera

720p

GPS

no

This list of mine is not ordered by preference, it's random.

This is why the Protocol Galileo Stealth, a drone which I actually consider to be a good buy is on what appears to be the last spot.

Again, it's not an extremely unique drone, it comes with a basic flight time, the ability to take 720p photos and video and doesn't fly that far.

But the overall design, the fact that you can record everything on the Micro SD card and the low price makes it a pretty good buy.

 

  • Good building materials
  • Decent camera
  • Great Price
  • good package accessories
  • pretty slow flier

Best Alternative to the Protocol Galileo Stealth for beginners

MJX 104G

This is probably the only Good GPS drone under $100 that I know off, that also comes with a good quality camera.

  • 1080p good camera
  • great stable GPS
  • Return to home on button press and low battery
  • great materials and controller
  • solid build

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
