Quadcopter Budget Buys Starting Point
The Drone Flyers Team often get asked by friends and family to suggest a suitable entry point model so they can see if Quadcopter flying is something they would enjoy. We have talked about this in detail and had along hard look at all the models that are available and the conclusion that we always reached buy a Cheerson-CX10 at $15.99 or the latest version the CX-10A at $18.99 from Banggood. There are simply no better Quadcopter models than these to get started with. Both will be perfect tools to learn your flying skills and the CX-10A the latest version will teach you headless flying. We often lend out Nano Quadcopters to friends and family to help them get started and they have all had great fun with them.
Cheerson CX-10 Quadcopter with Guard
Get one of these tiny Nano Quadcopters and practice all you can. Read the manual a number of times, charge it up via the supplied USB battery charger pop some batteries into the RC Transmitter and you are good to go. Just practice lifting it up in the air and landing it back down again gently teasing the left stick up and down. Once you have mastered this lift the Quadcopter slowly up in the air and use the right stick to take it forward and backwards. Try and keep the Quadcopter at a level height and again don’t jerk on the sticks just gentle movements. You don’t get a long flying time with these Nano Quadcopters just practice for 3 minutes 30 seconds (a timer is useful) then re-charge the batteries. I may seem difficult at first but have patience and always fly low and fly slow when starting.
The beauty about the Nano Quadcopters is that they can be flown almost anywhere indoors and outdoors if the weather conditions are favourable. Once you have perfected taking off and landing, flying forward and backwards you can then practice turning the direction the Quadcopter is facing by gently moving the left stick to the left of right. The speed in which the Quadcopter changes is known as the ‘Yaw’ rate and this can vary considerably from Quadcopter to Quadcopter. At this junction we would like to emphasise you must always fly with safety in mind. Don’t attempt to fly these Nano Quadcopters around pets and persons. We suggest for both of the models you invest in a protector guard. There are others available but the team at Drone Flyers highly recommend this one. It will protect the Quadcopter from any damage it is a must for Quadcopter beginners on a budget. You may consider getting spare batteries for your Nano Quadcopter but unless you have soldering skills we don’t recommend you should bother with this option for the Nano Quadcopter class. This Nano Quadcopters are also capable of performing amazing flips (not recommended until you are 100% confident in your flying capabilities) and have led light fitted which are great for a spot of night flying when you are ready.
