So here’s a toy mini quad with a surprisingly good 5.8GHz FPV system from gearbest.com Really nice screen and robust video link are the surprises in this sub-$100 package. Fun for buzzing around the house (I can’t get it to drop the FPV signal anywhere in my house, even through walls and ceilings) or to give to a child as something to practice with that’s a bit more like a “grown up” version.
I put this one through its paces in terms of what’s in the box, fit and finish, camera and FPV quality, video results and how it flies. Available from http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopters/pp_126130.html and if you use this discount code at checkout they’ll give a promotion price even when their New Year sale is finished: HM1315YM

My “On the Kitchen Table” videos are mainly aimed at newcomers to multirotors, quadcopters, drones and UAVs, particularly to the DJI product range, and the Phantom line in particular. I have how to’s, product reviews, tips, tricks, hints and information for beginners and those in the early stages of the hobby. I film “on the kitchen table” to show people that, like me, you don’t need a workshop and an array of specialist equipment and years of experience to get started and progress with flying these amazing aircraft and enjoying making great aerial videos and stills. So if you have bought, or are thinking of buying, a DJI Phantom, Phantom FC40, Phantom 2, Phantom 2 Vision or Vision+ or Plus, or even building your own DJI Flamewheel F450 or F550, we can do it… on the kitchen table!
