The Drone Pilot’s Handbook: The knowledge, the skills, the rules – $10
This is a brand new book that I just finished reading. It provides a readers with a great general overview of everything drone related. (Amazon Link)
Aerial Photography and Videography Using Drones – $22
One of the best drone books there is covering everything from how to fly, to tips/techniques, to inspiration and interviews with drone pilots. (Amazon link)
Syma X8G – $130
Because of its size this is a little more serious than the smaller drones above. It features a pretty good 8 megapixel GoPro-like camera. Probably the best part about this drone is if you already own a GoPro you can swap out the default camera and capture 12 megapixel photos and 4K video from the GoPro instead. (Amazon link)
Hubsan H501S 1080P HD – $280
This drone comes with a built-in screen so you can see a live feed of your flight and the camera shoots 1080p video. It also has some cool smart features built-in like follow me, altitude hold mode, and auto return home. (Amazon link)
