Without a doubt, the aerial footage from 4k drones is just stunning. Today, I’ll be reviewing top 3 4k best selling drones in 2020 and the reason why they are the best for filming. The 4k drones I’ll be talking about are equipped with UHD video cameras, and that is the industry’s standard for capturing spectacular videos.

The 4k drones featured in this post come with advanced features such as precision stabilization along with obstacle detection and collision avoidance. The use of 4k recording cameras on drones has become the standard for professional aerial filming.

DJI Mavic Air

The new DJI Mavic Air 4k drone is the first release of 2018 and a major one at that.  The DJI Mavic Air came up with yet another beautifully designed drone.  The Mavic Air’s carefully thought design is the main reason the drone is very portable.

In contrast to the DJI Spark, the DJI Mavic Air drone is smaller than the DJI Spark when it is folded.  However, when the DJI Mavic Air 4k drone is unfolded, it appears bigger than the Spark.

Now, let’s look at the reason why the DJI Mavic Air 4K drone is good for filming.

Active Tracking

DJI Mavic Air uses an ActiveTrack technology, which makes the DJI Mavic Air a game-changer. It can sense up to 16 objects at any given time. The DJI Mavic Air also allows you to then choose the desired subject you might want to track.  Mavic Air follows its targets with ease irrespective of whether they might be running, walking, or jumping.


When it comes to capturing professional videos, the Mavic Air is a high performer. It captures standard 4k videos at 30 frames per second, translating to records of 100 megabytes per second, capturing every moment in ultra-high definition quality. The DJI Mavic Air is built to capture moments that involve fast-moving objects with HD quality at rates up to 120 frames per second. The DJI Mavic Air is also capable of taking shots.

DJI Inspire 1

Inspire 1 is also one of the best drones to date.  The Inspire 1 is a high tech drone with lots of new advanced technology.


Now, this high tech drone allows its users to shoot 4k UHD videos at rates equivalent to 30 frames per second. The Inspire 1 is fitted with a 12-megapixel camera capable of taking high-quality photos when needed.

The lens found on the Inspire 1 drone consists of 9 different elements, which includes an aspherical element, which is responsible for its spectacular clarity. At the same time, the Adobe DNG RAW gives you the ability to make every shot an outstanding work of creativity.

The Inspire has a maximum bitrate of 60 Mbps. Although, with the Pro model of the Inspire 1, you get a Zenmuse X5R, which is capable of recording lossless 4k videos RAW. With frame rates up to 30 fps and 1.7 Gbps average bitrate, it allows you to capture stunning video footage.

Typhoon H

Typhoon H drone is a multirotor filming drone from Yuneec. Due to its compact size, it is arguably one of the most advanced multirotor ever. It is suited for aerial cinematography and photography.

The Typhoon H is fitted with six rotors, retractable landing gear, and 360-degree gimbal camera. The Typhoon is relatively easy and safe to fly because it comes equipped with the latest collision avoidance sensing system.


The Typhoon H multirotor delivers flight time of up to 25 minutes. The Typhoon H Ground Station, i.e., the controller is powered by Android and features a 7-inch touchscreen display. This allows it to show live footage of your flight in 720p resolution and enables a variety of autonomous flight modes.

Flight Modes

The Typhoon H drone comes with several autonomous flight modes, which makes filming with a whole lot easier, making every footage a masterpiece. The Typhoon H can fly in a circular path around an object, keeping the camera focused on the object the whole time.

The Typhoon H can reach heights as far as 150 feet, enabling you to capture that perfect aerial selfie. The Typhoon H can be programmed to fly along an invisible route with ease.  

The Typhoon H will fly along the pre-set coordinates. At the same time, without any input from the controller, control the camera’s position.

Lastly, Typhoon H can track its subjects. This is ideal for shooting fast-moving objects with relative ease. All 3 models are the best drones to buy.
