Here’s the drones I would get in order of my favorite. We use the DJI Inspire 1 for our videos.
DJI Inspire 1
-I would get two controllers if possible to have the ability to have someone control the camera as well.

If you have a very small budget and don’t have enough to buy a big/medium drone, this is an awesome option to learn how to fly for under $100.00. They have a small camera on them, I would use them not for the camera but strictly to learn how to fly.

Check out my blog for all things camera gear related.
I have below a list of all the equipment we use on most our shoots. They are direct links to Amazon, where we bought all the same equipment. These are affiliate links, so if you want to support us, and buy the item off the link, will make a little money off of it. Your not charged any extra, and it goes to supporting us, just wanted to make sure you knew ahead of time These are all products I stand by 100 percent regardless, and all products we use on a day to day basis. At the end of this list I’ll have a link to a blog going into even more depth about the equipment we use.
Camera Equipment I Use:
Canon 5D Mark III (use for all our behind the scene videos):
Devinsupertramp Signature Series Glidecam:
My Favorite Lenses in Order of used most:
Canon 16-35mm F/4 USM
Canon 14mm F/2.8
Canon 70-200mm F/2.8 II
Canon 24mm F/1.4L II
Canon 50mm F/1.2
For all our aerial shots, we use the DJI Inspire 1, with two controllers.
Our favorite audio mic for on board camera:
Rode Pro Mic
We also use B+W circular polarizer. They get rid of the reflections from water, windows, and most plants/green things. We use them whenever the sun is out. When buying a polarizer make sure to get the right size for the lens that you own. I feel if your going to spend the money and buy an expensive lens, it’s worth spending the extra money to buy a polarizer of the same quality to match your lens, otherwise your lens won’t be as clear. Plan on spending about 130 dollars US for one.
Here’s a couple different sizes for common lenses:
GoPro Hero4 Black Edition. This is the one we use and recommend.
The GoScope We Use:
Western Digital 2TB Hard Drives:
Transcend Card Reader:
