The Half Chrome Team

We started Half Chrome because we want you to experience the same joy from flying drones that we do. We had questions that we felt other sites just didn’t answer. Our goal is to provide you with information so you can find the drone that is best for you. We try to cover everything from photography to FPV.

Half Chrome Drones

Buying the right drone can be tricky. We wanted to create a site that didn’t just tell you what was written on the box. We wanted to give you more. We wanted to know how they fly, how well their cameras work, and how robust they are to abuse. We have spent countless hours flying, videoing, crashing, and researching our drones.  Then we record it all and share it with you. We’ve broken down our drones by size, price, and features to help you find what you are looking for. If you are a first-time pilot or if you are looking to get professional quality photos, we can tell you what best suits your needs.
