If you want your drone to light up the night sky (and possibly fool some UFO watchers), then fitting LED lights is the way to go.

Whichever drone you have, there’s most likely an LED light kit that can add some sparkle and flair to your night flying.

One of our featured drone accessories:

SKYREAT LED Blue Light Kit Strip for DJI phantom 3 Professional and Advanced

Keep Your Peace of Mind by Fitting Propeller Guards


If your drone doesn’t already come with propeller guards – then we strongly suggest that you have some fitted.

Propeller blades (especially on larger drones) can be very dangerous. There’s no need to risk potential harm to yourself or others, when you can easily eliminate this hazard by fitting propeller guards.

One of our featured drone accessories:

HOBBYTIGER® Propeller Props Blades Guards Frame Protector Cover Protection 9″Inch for Drone DJI Phantom 3 Phantom 2 Quadcopter

Fly for Longer With Spare Batteries


With flight times on some drones as low as a few minutes, investing in extra batteries is one thing you should definitely consider.

You may be surprised at just how cheap spare batteries are. For the majority of drones, it’s also a straightforward operation to switch a dead battery for a fully-charged one.

One of our featured drone accessories:

Combo: Tenergy T439 charger for 3.7V Lithium RC battery + 5pcs 380mAh batteries for Hubsan X4

See Your Controller Screen in Direct Sunlight


If you’re using a smartphone as a drone controller, you may have discovered one problem: Bright, direct sunlight makes it almost impossible to see the screen.

Luckily, clever designers have created custom sunshades. These fit around the phone and prevent the sunlight from turning your screen into a mirror!

One of our featured drone accessories:

Mudder 5.5 Inches FPV Cellphone Monitor Sunshade Hood Cover for Phantom 3 and DJI Inspire 1 Transmitters

Let This Bag Protect You From Battery Fires and Explosions


Did you know that LiPo batteries are prone to catching fire, or even exploding? These are scary scenarios that you certainly don’t want to encounter.

You can help defend yourself from these dangers by charging, storing and transporting your LiPo batteries in a flame-retardant bag. As the saying goes… “Better to be safe than sorry!”

One of our featured drone accessories:

BW® Fireproof Explosionproof Lipo Battery Safe Bag Lipo Battery Guard Safe Bag Pouch Sack for Charge & Storage

Whether you’re flying for fun, or have more serious goals, we’re sure these drone accessories will help take your piloting skills to new heights.
