My OH announced he would like a little drone that he could fly about the house and garden. (Hes not that mobile to be going far with it) I looked it up and found this - can any enthusiasts tell me if this is a suitable thing for inside manoevering practise/fun , or is it too big --or is it rubbish for that matter and theres something better? Is this even a drone - Dont know Im out of my depth! The reviews seem ok as long as the shop didnt write them !
http://www.wirelessmadness.com/rc-helico...MWN0BoCfCvw_wcB Ah, sorry, I dont know how to make the link smaller .

I'd say that would do him fine, you don't need anything to expensive until he gets hooked smile I am no expert by the way.

I've got a hubsan. They're ok for beginners. Get you used to the controls and basic flying. Easy to set up, just charge battery plug it in and fly for about 10 mins. They're quite fragile. The first one I bought lasted about 10 mins before it hit the ceiling and ended up in a a few pieces. But bought a new one straight away on ebay and took it a bit steadier

I bought one of those last Xmas, took out a few decorations, scared the cat. Great stuff. I went on to buy a Phantom 2, cost over a grand with camera and monitor.
