I am currently open to suggestions for what type of Drone to purchase for a beginner
Welcome and good luck!
I am sure you will get dozens of recommendation.
My one thought is buy the best quad you can afford to lose. Because you will either crash it or lose it.
I started with an $80 mini. It was crashed and kept coming back for more. After 5 years I finally broke a prop guard. So something to be said for light weight quads. They are more likely to walkway from a crash.
Even though it's a couple years old, I still think the Tarantula X6 is one of the best starter quads. Big enough to be stable in the wind and fairly durable, replacement parts are readily available. 3 flight modes so you can increase speed and reaction as your skills grow. I still fly mine on occasion, it's a blast!
Priced right and new tech. Very docile in low rates (for learning) and quite sporty in high. The motors will stop if undo resistance is felt (saving them from burning out) and the contrasting props are a big help for orientation. Buy a few extra batteries and hone your chops.
I agree. I have one and it's survived 2 years of abuse. And the camera (optional ) is not terrible. The FPV ( optional) sucks
To add to the variety.. This will get you going. The little guys are fun inside. Eachine E013 w/ RC & Goggles
