5 Things You Must Know Before Buying a Drone for Flying

Drones are becoming very popular among men and women across the world due to their useful nature and medicine delivery by companies like flyzipline. Kids also love to fly drones with their friends and have a happy time.

The time is not far enough when we would see some cool drones working in synchronization with human’s brains and mind gestures to complete the work which seems to be hard to accomplish by human hands with the advanced AI integrated commands in them, thus making them more useful for us.

Everyone wants to fly a drone but when going out to buy a drone people faces some issues in selecting the right drone. So to overcome these obstacles and help you make a firm choice before buying a nice drone which will last for longer than you think, we have come up with some of the best tips for you to know before buying a good drone for yourselves and your kids.


1. Look out for flight time

Drones are meant for flying high in the sky and do the desired task like capturing stunning images, working in farms etc. To perform all this we need to make sure that they fly in sky while we need them too, which means flight time is one of the most important aspect to take into consideration while buying a new drone.

Taking into consideration the current drone market, the ideal flight time would be 25-30 minutes until something new comes up to enhance the flight time.

Incredible flight times comes from high mAh battery, so make sure that your drone comes with a high power battery and to be on safe side, it’s advised to buy an additional battery pack so that you don’t have to face any disappointment while flying your drone in midway flight.


2. Consider the price

Drone price is one factor that could help you to choose the right drone according to your budget without compromising on features and quality of drone.

Make sure that whenever you plan to buy a drone you should buy from drones for sale category in retail shops so that buying a drone won’t burn a hole in your pocket.

If you choose to buy a drone with a discount then it could definitely help you save some extra bucks for partying with your kids or buying them a nano drone to make them happy.


3. Look out for the drone camera

If you are a photography enthusiast or you are buying the drone for capturing some life cherishing images, then the drone camera could play an incredible role in taking some stunning images.

Some drones come equipped with high-quality cameras but some drones come with the option to attach a camera like the Gopro sport camera to get some high end photos right from your drones in the sky while you perform some jaw dropping stunts.

4. Make sure that your drone has advanced features

While buying a drone that fits in your budget, don’t forget to make sure that it comes with some advanced feature like way point function, orbital turns, point of start landing, gps navigation, long wifi range, fpv for getting immersive view and images etc.


If you take note of all the information before hand and know what you are buying, then you will get an edge while buying from a retail store or online shop as the seller will not be able to fool you.

You could read some YouTube guides or drone reviews before buying the drone of your choice.

5. Consider the drone size and weight

While buying a nice drone you need to look out for the size and weight of drone because drones come in many sizes like nano drones, foldable drones, big size drones, medium size drones, etc. So you need to buy one which you can carry easily with you on the trip and it has all the desired features without compromising on flight time.

Hope these tips help you make the right choice of buying a good quality drone to capture some stunning pics with your friends and family to cherish forever.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals



    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.



      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.


      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.



          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.


            You can check out Access and the Office Suite here and Bento here.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.


            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
