This cheap brushless quadcopter has plenty of lifting power, stability, and fantastic range. Attach just about any action camera, and it becomes a great video drone. Find the JJRC X1 here http://www.banggood.com/JJRC-X1-With-…
— Currently this is the cheapest ready to fly brushless motor quadcopter.
— Powerful D1806 — 2280KV brushless motors with 6 inch props provide plenty of lifting power. Should be able to lift most action cameras such as GoPro.
— Transmitter range of between 300 to 400 meters. Should be able to fly it and control it as far as you can see it.
— Extremely maneuverable. Also has the power to maintain altitude at steep pitch = extremely fast quadcopter.
-Not recommended for beginners. High speed turning propellers can be a hazard. Also, this quadcopter accelerates quickly and can be somewhat hard for a beginner to both control and maintain orientation.
— Motor starting and shutdown procedures are complex, and quite different than most other quadcopters.
— Landing gear is bouncy and somewhat unstable. Quadcopter can easily tip in a landing possibly causing damage to propellers.
— Body shell plastic seems to be stiff and possibly fragile. May not be very impact resistant to crashes.
— I couldn’t get the flip button to work. But it may be my inability to understand the translated English of the user manual.
