Drones

Recommended Posts

So a few weeks ago Monoprice.com's distribution warehouse in Rancho Cucamonga CA had a pretty sizeable warehouse sale in which they tried to unload all sorts of scratch and dent merch, while also selling monoprice branded and other undamaged stuff at pretty nice discounts. I bought wifey some monoprice over the ear bluetooth headphones for $15, which she loves! And I bought myself this.

Got me a little drone regularly priced at $50 for $30. I figured for $30, why not.

 

It's made by Hubsan and it's model H107C and I gotta say that this little drone is AWESOME. Its already proven to be very durable as ive already crashed it a number of times. Ive only have had to replace the propellers which they are really cheap on ebay (6 sets for $6 shipped). And ive also bought 5 extra batteries. (Flight time is about 7 minutes buy battery charges in about 35 minutes.) I've been flying it almost on a daily basis. Around my room, and outside.

 

It even has a camera. For a $30 dollar drone I didn't expect much as far as quality and I was right. It's decent though. Range is really good as well. I took this screenshot from a video I shot with this drone:

I have a blast flying this thing around. I already want a bigger and better one with GPS and HD Video recording and with a FPV screen on the control. I also want one I don't have to register with the FAA.

 

Im thinking about this being my next drone:

Do any of you fly any drones/quadcopters?

I don't have any drones yet but recently I've been very interested in getting started. I'd like to get one capable of taking nice quality video and still photos, and also one capable of carrying a small package about a mile's distance. Great topic! Excited to see where this thread goes.

You should get one. I took mine to my brothers house for thanksgiving, and now my brother and his 2 kids want one and so does my dad.

 

It took be a bit to get it to fly how I wanted it to. It was a bit weird at first but I got the hang of it after about a day. My wife already tells me I'm flying it much better and with more control now too.
