Without the proper accessories, you might end up hurting your drone and yourself!  Here are 6 accessories that will make sure you have the best flying experience possible.

1. Propeller Guards

Did you ever try to stick your finger inside a fan as a kid?  If you did, I'm sure you remember how unpleasant that was.  Well, drone blades are just like fan blades and can cause similar injuries.

3. Extra Batteries

Extra batteries

4. Extra SD Cards

5. LED Light Kit

Why constrain your flying time to when the sun is up?  With an LED Light Kit, you can fly any time and in any light.

Besides, how cool do those colors look??
