My Drone of choice

My First Drone

X5C Explorer

After months on end of reading and researching I have finally decided on which would be my first drone. I have been toying with the idea of building my own drone, but after watching hours of footage on building a drone and configuring one and watching the Twit Network, father Robert Ballecer advice was taken into consideration and I’ve decided to purchase his recommended starter drone the  Syma X5C Explorers.

So why the Syma X5C?

Well it came down to the price, after going through the list for building a drone by Twit network and watching their hours of build information reviews, I’ve decided that they were correct with starting with the Syma because of the $58 price point vs the hundreds of dollars for a build. The idea is to get the cheaper drone so if I wrecked it, it wouldn’t be that bad. If it survived after I’ve gotten good at it and learn how to correctly control and use the device, I can pass it on to my daughter to get her into the drone race.
