What do you recommend?


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi All,

I suspect you have heard similar threads before, but I would like to buy a quadcoptor for my nephew for his birthday. He is turning 11 but has no RC toys. My budget is around $60. Is there any product any of you know of that you would recommend? I have looked on line but do not find the reviews that helpful.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

if you go with the blade name you will be able to buy parts and extra batterys for it.

Re: What do you recommend?

It's about as good as it gets at that price point. Buying lower does not mean getting more for your fewer dollars. There are others like those from Walkera, Traxxas, and Hubsan, but you get what you pay for at those levels. There have been reviews done on other forums and overall the Blade does get very good reviews. Parts are everywhere and batteries are cheap. Later, if the model is kept and they get a good Spektrum transmitter as they progress in the hobby, the smooth flying characteristics of that quad will really come to light. Take care.

Don
