I'm new and looking for a drone
« on: February 14, 2018, 07:57:59 »
Hello I am new here but not to flying.i am looking to buy an fpv drone.its only needed for a few quick missions.definitely brushless and with a radio in mode 2 for UK flyers.I am used to using a dx6i so the controls need to have the correct layout

what size drone would you like?
what is your budget?
do you have a transmitter and fpv monitor/goggles already?

do you want something for arco or just float about in the sky?
indoors or outdoor use?

Sounds like you have specific flights in mind or rather a specific job, I am sure someone with an fpv drone would be happy to help you out, buying one for 2 flights seems perverse

The type of flight is important, it effects the type of quad

Colour is important cos red ones go faster

I am looking for a ready to fly job as I do not have any if my rc gear or tool currently.I have plans to get to flying helis later this year

It's for outdoors but I will pick calm weather
Budget definitely nothing close to a phantom,It's not going to get much use so I won't be spending crazy amounts
Colour well not sky blue or green for overious reasions

Ok so
Typical rtf or bind and fly at the bottom end of the price bracket are eachine wizard or emax nighthawk.

If yiu want micro there are quite a lot of brushed tinywhoop variants and brushless are generally appearing. On that scale though range isn’t brilliant, and you are more suceotabke to weather

Do be careful if these "missions" involve you getting paid or even "paid" in any way of involve flying over / near any events, people or structures or taking images.

Bet you won't stick to a coupl of missions though - get in the air and you'll be HOOKED!!!   :wack0

eachine wizard x220 with a flysky transmitter combo is about £150
you can do line of sight flying and then pick up a fpv monitor or goggles
it has purple props but these can easily be swapped out for some dalprop cyclones 5046C for a couple quid (which are available in red too)

Looks like a perfect suggestion to me 😎 it's just occurred to me  I have been flying  since Sept 08 and have a few thousand hours I guess BUT...no fpv 🤔
I made night vision goggles a month ago and it should be very easy to convert the camera on this drone over at a later date for some goofing around YouTube videos
