Hi,
I am am a complete starter at RC quad copters and I a building a SK450 quad. I am 13 and my dad said that before I can put 400 dollars in the air, I need to practice flying first. What is a cheap off the shelf quad copter that I can use to practice. I would like if it were under 60 dollars. I am using a 9XR transmitter for the build, but I would like if the cheap one came with a transmitter too.

Thank you.

Love those SYMAs. I got into electrics with the 107Gs.

Burned a few dozen hours tweaking them to no end for more air time and agility. Even put a 808#11 on one. Jello city :p

banggood.com sells the v929 with or without a transmitter. I bought it with the transmitter but it does also work with the Turnigy 9x.

man, the s107, my first rc love as well. that thing is awesome. indestructible. just wish it was RC not IR… gotta know, how did it fly sans boom? :confused:


they do have some funky stuff with prop wash and cheap gyros, so descending is always scary, but certainly fun.

if you do get a v929, I recommend pulling the booms out a little bit (longer booms = more stable) and CA them there. if you don't, they may snip the wires in a crash, like happened to mine. otherwise though, they are virtually indestructible.

if you want it, here is (to the best of my knowledge) the cheapest source for v929's. mine came safe, sound, and quick. and the free shipping cant be beat: http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-W...uadcopter-Dexterous-Mini-UFO-RTF-p-46172.html

No rear boom it has one mode. . .forward and fast. Plus you get another couple minutes of air time. I also moved the batteries as far forward as possible for an additional bit of speed. But that pretty much removes ability to go backwards even with a boom. All you can do is hover with the right stick all the way back.

yah, I upgraded mine to a bigger battery, plus removing all those silly struts in the back. both of those things made it near impossible to hover. still loads of fun.

that all ended when the cat peed in the remote (AGGHHAGG)
