Hi, I'm a newbie! just got my son a new drone for Christmas to start on (snaptain sp700) it seams to be descent to start on. he had a really cheap toy drone that he loved so i figured would step him up just a little.
I got my Dad into flying with a quadcopter, I think they're an ideal first taste of flight. The drone you've got has got a lotta fun features on it! Its nature may be different from the planes, but I can see it having a long career. Every quad I've had over the years is still performing as they did when they were new! 🙂
