My vote for a entry lvl would be the tarantula x6. Its a bit more nimble the the syma. It can also carry a heavier payload. It has the ability to carry a gopro on a 3d gimble. Makes for the best airal filming. Lots of spare part availible. And just about the same price as the syma. The syma is like a tank but it is easier to fly. It is a slower moving flyer compared to the x6. But really th3 best one on ft would have to be the walkera if you dont mind the 350.00 price tag.
Flashlights: I put in a battery and press the button, if I can see again they work. If not I replace the battery. If that doesn't work I strip it down and turn it into a vape mod and get a new light.

Johnny I noticed you said you would mostly use it indoors. In that case I would say the micro copters like this

SKU 3764300

This little things are so small makes them easy to maneuver around in the house.

I am on the fpv system now, I want to use my old 41 mHZ airplanes with a boscam receiver,transmitter (I have cancel the drone "quad copters " )
I could use my tv for test in the first time

1 Kmeters + is more than enough for a fun fly usage

SKU 2074401 or SKU 2074501 are great for indoor use i have both, and am hoping the fat white bearded guy is nice enough to bring me this SKU 1835900 for xmas to use out doors as it seems durable and reliable.


SKU 2074501 says the controller takes 2*AAA batteries yet the image of the battery compartment shows 4 bays and is the same photo used in the SKU 2074401 listing and that one says it takes 4*AA (which looks about right).
So, do they both use 4*AA batteries in their respective controllers, or?

I ordered a Syma X13. Specifically went cheaper since I'll be learning with it, figured I get something with a camera later. Doesn't look like FT has replacement blades etc for this specific model but I found them on Syma's site. I'm wondering if I should cancel the X13 while I still can and get something with extra blades from FT. Hmmmm...

I ended up with the X13 and it's great so far, learning to fly with it. I think its better suited for indoors, or I'm just better navigating without any wind :)

Interested to know what johnny_469 ended up getting..

I went with JJRC JJ-850 for indoor flights and for outdoor practicing i went with Syma X5HW

850- good chunky prop guards, removable battery, not to fast yaw could be faster but good for indoors and for learning.

x5hw- altitude hold mode great for learning no need to worry that it will fall easily. The FPV is just for fun, with 2,4GHz FPV it's really choppy.

The syma x5c-1 is a good starter quad. Spares are plentiful. Get extra batteries, props and motors.


Hi I've had a couple of the syma drones and they do the same model but with different shells I've had a really light flexible plastic one and a couple of the hard plastic ones and there both good they have 2 gears for inside and outside the lighter one finds it hard to fly into the wind but the others have no problem they come with a 500mah battery but you can get a upgrade to a 1200mah syma all so do a camera and an app for fpv i hope this helps with your decision there really easy to fly while I remember you could do with different coloured propellers makes it easier to see direction your flying
