Quote from: Hands0n on Sunday,June 23, 2013, 20:56:32 I';d say that you should go for anything with GPS and a Return To Launch (RTL) capability. If I had to do it all over again - I was a rank beginner - I would go for a custom build from the likes of Peter King who has a pretty good reputation from all I read and certainly knows his stuff. You can see what he gets up to on his YouTube channel where he demo';s builds for his clients before sending the quad-rotor out to them. Also loads of tutorials and other demos. See here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQx4lLeXHIzZPBBDHC50O2w Peter seems to have settled on the APM flight controller with GPS that gives an awesome capability. Even if you fly out of range, providing its set up (I';m sure he does) it will RTL and land almost at your feet.Having had a close escape in Saturday';s winds myself I am a major fan of GPS based RTL from here on in

Quote from: MOFO64 on Monday,June 24, 2013, 09:31:28 Considering you bought an I-Fly4 and it was too much for you, I';d suggest steering clear of the APM flight controller. It requires a lot of setup and is by no means suited to a "noob". Do yourself a favour and buy a Naza-lite with GPS and you';ll have a much more enjoyable experience.You can buy an APM later when you want the highly configurable settings it affords you.
