Can anyone recommend me some quadcopter for beginners?
« on: January 12, 2018, 07:14:29 »
Hello everyone. I am a beginner in the drones field. I am looking for a quadcopter that is suitable for beginners, so I can learn flying drones. Please, if you have some recommendations write to me.

Thank you,
Jackie

Hi Jackie, what are you fancying having a go at, taking vids and photos, or something with a bit of speed to whizz around with ?
You can spend 20- 30 quid on a little hubsan to play with round the house and see if you like, or spend £1000+ on a mavic pro or a big self build camera ship or a racing drone .
 To give a recommendation, we'd need to know what your budget is :smiley:

Also, do you want to fly Line of Sight (LOS) looking at the model, or First Person View (FPV) using a screen or headset/goggles to fly looking from the model?

For a raw beginner (and beyond for fun) the Hubsan 107 (X4), or the Eachine E010.  The Eachine is probably the better one being ducted prop and easier to fit a FPV micro set up. Search Banggood for that model and its near relatives E013, etc.

For less than £50 you can have a flying LOS and FPV quad/Transmitter and headset. A few extra batteries and this will get you going esp during the winter weather when indoor flying is preferable or the only thing possible.

Start here:-

The Eachine E010 Quad,  This is the basic Quad, Transmitter, one battery and USB charger, to which an extra cost camera can be added (requires soldering,etc)

The batteries (subject to hopefully short term delivery issues) are

The slightly better quad with camera fitted (and an additional “with screen” option) is

If you can afford it the "with screen option" is a good deal just to get going and decide if you want to progress to more costly gear.

As a first "line of sight" quad the E010 is pretty good. It's ridiculously stable, but once you hit the mode button a couple of times it's fast enough to be entertaining indoors..... Though personally I'd go for the E011 instead. These quads are the same size, But the E011 uses 7mm motors rather than the E010's 6mm motors. Take off the silly lego man to save weight (And increase flight times) and it's a very capable little brushed quad.... www.banggood.com/Eachine-E011-Mini-2_4G-Headless-Mode-With-60000RPM-716-Coreless-Motor-Toy-Brick-RC-Quadcopter-RTF-p-1135724.html
The E011 also wins out because if you decide to have a go at flying it FPV (Fitting a little camera and video transmitter to it) it's got enough extra power over the E010 to still fly well. The E010 can struggle on anything other than a full battery to climb with a camera on top.
As an added bonus, Both the E010 and E011 cost peanuts, So if you get one and decide the hobby's not for you then you've not shelled out a hell of a lot to find that out.

A really bad day of flying is still ten times better than a good day at work.
