Mi5 Quadcopter

Hi Everyone,
Just thought I would start a thread on this little gem, I got mine 2 days ago and so far its been a blast.
I started my quad flyin back in 2003 with this......:

The Draganflyer from canada, at the time it cost me over £500 with the 2.4 camera kit and all the gubbins that came with it and i thought it was the dogs Bo*%ks. I spent many an hour mastering the sticks and went through countless blades in the process until i found myself shooting round the skies with impunity and filming all sorts of interesting people and places in the process.
this lasted for over a year untill i got absolutley sick of waiting for spare blades and motors etc to be delivered from canada as this was the ONLY place i could source them.
Sold the Draganflyer for a measley price of £150 to a friend and that was the end of that............ Or so i thought !

roll on to 2012 and i happen to drop onto one of these...........

The J Perkins Twister Quad
I really cannot believe how far these quadcopters have come on,the stability of this little bug is amazing compared to what i was used to, its a complete blast to fly indoors and out and really builds your flying confidence from the word go,the included transmitter screams quality for such a budget little machine and the quad itself feels solid and robust ,
theres 4 flying rates to play with from 20% beginner to 100% expert mode that also lets you flip and roll with complete ease,all backed up by the clear LCD screen on the transmitter.Flight times are 7-10 mins approx and with an extra couple of flight batteries @ £4.99 each the sky as they say is the limit.
I will be uploading some video and pics soon to give you all a real world video review of this gem.

Excellent post I didn';t realise quads had been around so long, Im not sure what year I started out with multi';s now but it was just as the first kit built kk boards came out where you had to rip a few HK gyros apart to make one, look forward to seeing some video  ~~  :beer2:

The Quadcopter has been around commercially since 1999, heres a link http://www.draganfly.com/our-story/

the first incarnation was the 1 you see on the link, then Draganfly introduced the one that you see on my post and I was instantly hooked, it was a real handfull to fly but after a while I got quite good at it, when i first took it to my flying club in 2003 the other members were mesmerised by it,they had never seen anything like it before and whenever i flew it there everybody stopped flying thier planes and helis and just stood there in complete amazement, i could take it up till it was a dot in the sky while filming and got some great footage of our flying site and the surrounding fields and quarrys.
But as i said the blades on these things were made of what seemed like eggshells and one slight touch on a branch of a bush or even blades of grass and they would disintergrate  :o.

Is it just me, or does this read like a sales pitch :shrug:

I thought it was a good read. There are no links to them initially and would not be something I would buy at this time.
