    Hello!

    Completely new to drones/quads – never used one or anything similar.

    I am looking to get started with something relatively inexpensive at first. Primarily just want to use it for taking photos when I'm enjoying the outdoors.

    I already have a GoPro Hero 3+ and would ideally like to be able to use that (as I understand it - cheaper drones don't have great integrated cameras, so I think I'm after one with a mount).

    Any and all advice appreciated as I truly don't know where to start.

    I haven't done business with this seller, but you can (if you are patient and shop) get a roughly similar price sometimes from Banggood and Gearbest and once in a while from Amazon if you watch Vipon.com. I would suggest this quad, and your GoPro should fit fine in the included camera mount. It's an excellent quad. It would probably be helpful if you bought a decent cheap brushed quadcopter to get some practice on, as this one is quite powerful, but it is very stable and not difficult to fly in low rate.
