quadcopter recommendations?

#1
Hi,

My brother and I are planning to get a couple of quadcopter's so we can crank around the house when it is all wet and snowy outside. We want something that is small like the Inductrix and has ducted blades so we can bounce off walls without damaging the blades. The Inductrix is a little to expensive or else we would get it.

I was looking at the JJRC H36 because it is cheap, it has ducted blades and it is RTF.

Just wondering what your thoughts are about the H36 and if you have any other recommendations.

Thank you.

Well...They're cheap, I'll give you that. Me personally? I hate the controller that this thing comes with. I've got one that's VERY similar from a Propel drone my wife bought me for Christmas; it feels incredibly hard to control in my adult sized hands.

I know the Inductrix drones are a bit more expensive, but I'll be honest that they fly pretty darned good, and you can use a real transmitter (Spektrum for the true Inductrix, or you can go Frsky or DSMX/Spektrum with NewBeeDrone's Acrobees) to fly them.

But, at $13, it's not a terrible price for those...I'd say to go for it in the purchase, but at the same time, don't expect it to have the same acro abilities that the Inductrix/TinyWhoop drones have.

Oh, and another word of caution, whether you fly this or Inductrixes around your house - keep the toilet lids down while flying! :)

Yeah, I'm not expecting it to be like the inductrix. My brother and I just want a cheap quadcopter so we can fly together and have competitions sometimes. We'll probably pickup a few extra batteries too.
