The original term of drones referred to pre-programmed aircraft devices that didn’t need human control to fly around. Nowadays, drones are the most popular gadget because they can either be pre-programmed to fly somewhere or be remotely controlled while filming its flight. Here are the Top 5 Best Drones in the world at the moment.

5.Quadcopter UDI U818A

A helicopter is great, but a quadcopter is better. This drone is the best first choice for those who haven’t had a drone before. Firstly because it is one of the cheapest quadcopters on market and secondly because it has flexible propeller protectors that make it more stable and easier to fly. Although the battery doesn’t last more then 10 minutes, to maximize your flight experience with the UDI U818A quadcopter, it comes with 2 extra battery packs as well as with extra rotors. You can perform different type of aerial stunts with it but the camera installed on it has very low resolution and beware of windy weather because it loses its stability.

4.Blade Nano QX RTF

By keeping your drone under $100 a more smaller sized choice is the Blade Nano QX RTF. The tiny quadcopter is designed to be mostly flown in-doors as it is very sensitive to wind. The drone only has a circuit board and a frame made of a single piece of plastic. It is very light and easy to fly around and it won’t break things around the house or even itself if you crash it. The Nano QX has a Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope(SAFE) which makes sure that the quadcopter is under control even when you are not touching the controller. Its downside is the battery life which is under 7 minutes but only needs 25 minutes to recharge.

3.Phantom 2 Vision+

If you are already an expert in using drones you will love the Phantom 2 Vision+. As the DJI company has a lot of experience with building drones the Phantom 2 might just be their best one yet. As it is highly responsive and made out of durable plastic it’s the best choice for out-door use. The quadcopter has an high quality camera that can shoot 1080p/720p videos and takes 14MP photographs. It only comes with 1 battery and takes a long time to charge but the flight performance makes it worth it. Experts are very attracted to the Phantom 2 Vision+ but it is more expensive than other products on the market.

2.DJI Phantom 3

As DJI doesn’t disappoint, they’ve come up earlier this year, with another high performance quadcopter the Phantom 3. DJI Phantom 3 Professional is the first drone from this brand that can shoot 4K videos. As the Phantom 2 had highly performing flying modes they didn’t make any visible improvements to either flying controls or design. For this model DJI seems to have focused on better quality batteries and a greater visual experience. Drone experts found the lack of redesign a downfall but it seems that their opinions have changed after properly flying the very expensive Phantom 3.

1.3D Robotics IRIS+ Multicopter

If you are asking why the 3D Robotics IRIS+ Multicopter is the first choice, it is because it is easier to operate while allowing you to map out a course on your Android GPS and simply sit and watch the drones flight. It uses a GoPro as a camera but the original package does not include the filming device. The Multicopter comes with 3 types of flight modes: A standard mode that is manually controlled, a hover mode which is great for beginners and the auto mode that can be pre-programmed. The drone uses high quality batteries that are easily recharged and it is designed for expert drone users as well for beginners.

 

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
