I am currently flying a SJR/C F11 & would like to upgrade to something that is a little better. Do not get me wrong for someone that is new at this I like the F11. Being on a fixed salary for an old man I can not jump off the deep end for a new quad, but maybe a step up from what I have. Open to all suggestions.
" a atep up" is too vague.
Please give us an approximation of how much you are willing to pay. Specify currency please.
Also : are you staying on the "toy" version drones such as your SJRC F11? ( That's what I am at too).
The latest is DJI Mavic Mini. It is within your price range.
DJI is considered the king of quadcopters maker, and Mavic quads have ruled the market.
I do NOT own one. So, I cannot tell you how good it is anymore than you can find out yourself from Google.
