    So i can't help but want to fly mini-quads....

    Im buying one this week and flying it... Im not really going to fly it calmly since I'm a professional aerial droner and what not... so high chance that i wreck it pretty quickly

    ... Anyone want to join ? pm me.

    You are in for a big surprise if all you have flown is DJI. Have someone there to film, and share some video of you while you try to fly it the first time if thats the case :D

    I'd recommend building your own instead of buying an RTF (unless it's that Banggood Eachine for $125). You will crash. Lots. Knowing how to repair it will pay huge dividends later on. Also the Liftoff simulator on Steam is a great way to learn.

    fpv-flightclub.com has some excellent how-to's on building and tuning mini quads .

    Have fun!

    p.s. - buy lots of spare props.

    thanks ill check those sites out... i have spoken to a drone store that is custom building me a drone. I'm paying them for the build... i just don't have time to tinker with building a drone and risk hitting a road block... unless theres some out there that wants to walk me through it ? Id be wiling to pay you to go with me to store buy the right drone then build and fly it with :)

    oh yea and ill be recording because I'm pretty sure my crashes will be solid.

    Always wanted to try this, some videos on Instagram look so crazy... Sadly no time and don't really want to deal with the constant breaking/fixing

    I bought my two boys (9 & 10) both Walkera Runner 250Rs with GPS and Fat Shark Attitudes. It took me one time and two batteries each and they're both on their own now. They each have 5 batteries with two 2700mAh and the rest of 2200mAh which lets them spend easily two hours having a blast. Their experience with them will allow them to fly anything DJI produces with ease. They aren't that difficult to fly you just need to remember your truly flying them unlike an Inspire where its flying and your providing suggestions on where it should go.

    It will not even be close ;)

    You will get to use a real charger for the batteries.

    My quad experience began with a naze32, and I was totally freaked out with my first dji experience lol.

    Yeah you'll be hitting road blocks...and trees...bushes...park benches...walls. Then there will also be a lot of function checking gravity (hint: it works just fine).
