The Best Drones for your Flight Assessment: A Guide
Here at COPTRZ we offer a flight assessment test at the end of a 4 day PfCO training course. It’s important to ensure that you recognise a number of different factors. These range from weather considerations, to appropriate clothing. The main factor however largely, is the drone you are flying.
There are a large number of drones that are ideal for a flight test, and a lot of the time it merely comes down to the users need.
We’re going to take you through our four recommendations, and why we think they are ideal for the ultimate test that is the flight assessment.
We are going to look at the following:
- Inspire 2
- Phantom 4
- Matrice 210
- Mavic Pro
The DJI Inspire 2 is designed specifically for aerial cinematography and photography. The Inspire 2 provides a complete solution for high-quality aerial filming up to 5.2K resolution.
It comes equipped with the revolutionary first-person-view camera, allowing controlling this quadcopter a seamlessly easy task. With this in mind, it’s ideal for a flight assessment. The ease of control makes your flight test run as smoothly as possible.
The Inspire 2 is ideal if you’re looking for a drone for image purposes, but also if you’re looking for a drone that, as a flyer, you can grow with. The Inspire 2 is an investment, but a worthy one at that.

Phantom 4 Pro
The Phantom 4 Pro is smaller than the Inspire 2, so arguably would be easier to fly than the Inspire 2. It’s ideal for anyone looking to step into the drone cinematography or photography business.
The Phantom 4 is incredibly easy to fly, and is an entry level quadcopter. It’s one of the most popular flight test drones due to its ease of flight.
Its intelligent FlightAutonomy system just adds to its ease of flight. The FlightAutonomy system adds dual rear vision sensors and infrared sensing systems for a total of 5-direction of obstacle sensing and 4-direction of obstacle avoidance.
Introducing the Phantom 4 Pro
The Matrice M210 is ideal for the construction and surveying industries, so if you’re doing your flight test with the intention of flying within these industries, this may well be a drone well worth looking at.
The Matrice 210 has intelligent flight features. It harnesses computer vision via multiple DJI sensors. This allows your drone to collect data more efficiently adding aid to the intelligent flight mode.
It comes with a point of interest feature. This allows you to orbit smoothly around an object or structure, ensuring your flight time is as focused as possible. This will only aid you during your flight assessment.
The Matrice 210 is a drone you can grow with, and using it for your flight test will make your flying performance on a job even smoother. It’s an investment, but certainly one that it is worth making for your long term future.

Mavic 2 Pro
The DJI Mavic 2 Pro is a small yet powerful drone from DJI and is capable of capturing high-quality footage up to 4K resolution. This is an ideal drone for beginners due to its compact size and ease of flight. It’s ideal for both training purposes, as well as being more than capable of being used as a commercial drone.
The DJI Mavic 2 Pro features a CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) Hasselblad camera. The Hasselblad camera features a 1-inch sensor with no zoom. It supports a 10-bit colour profile, which is four times the amount of colour levels per channel of that of its predecessor. This provides maximum flexibility for editing. This is an upgrade on the Mavic Pro‘s camera. So, if you’re looking for image quality over zoom capability the Mavic 2 Pro is ideal.
