Why You Want To Buy A Radio Controlled Quadcopter

Drones have been in the news for years – but what many first time buyers will struggle with is what type of drone to purchase. There are numerous choices – however for the first time buyer who wants to have some fun and also perhaps attach a camera to their drone quadcopters are a great choice. But why are quadcopters so popular?

Let’s take a closer look at why these drones are on everyone’s wish list in 2016.

#1 Cost.

If you want to get a drone that is going to make your dreams come true as far as east control the quadcopters are the best purchase that you can make. These really are the best if you want to take high resolution video from up high. Companies like 3DRobotics and Parrot manufacture exceptional quadcopters that allow even the most inexperienced operator to get high in the sky and enjoy fantastic operator experiences. Easy to use, easy to set up and great flying time make the Quadcopters from these manufacturers among the most popular on the market.The down to earth costs of buying an entry model make them even more attractive – these are the best that you can have for a cost that won’t punish your wallet that much.

#2 For The Kids.

There are many quadcopter options that will let the younger members of the family enjoy the fun of drone operation. Spinning blades and slightly erratic operation might make drones dangerous to operate – but quadcopters are pretty safe to operate. The blade guards on models from many manufacturers like Parrot mean that they are a lot safer to operate than other models.

You can give the kids access to the fun of drones while also keeping them safe (and saving the ornaments) with models like the Parrot Rolling Spider. It’s quite at home climbing the walls in your living room, but then it will swiftly climb into the air outside. Massive family fun without the danger of open whirling blades.

#3 The Bounce Factor.

Many drones can be enormously expensive and also require expertise in the maintenance of high technology equipment. However this doesn’t need to be the case. It’s all about the price point. Many quadcopters require a little more than entry level skill to pilot. however there are those that would be fine with bouncing off a tree or two (or your furniture / cat).

For about $80 you can be flying any one of the Hubsan X4 H107 series quadcopters allow even the beginner to enjoy fun in the sky without a huge price tag. There are plenty more value for money options, but a chat with your friendly neighborhood hobby shop will always be the best path to enjoying this hobby.Of course there’s always the Internet option – there are great suppliers where experts will be able to advise you on which sort of quadcopter is best for your unique needs.

#4 Go For Gold.

If you really want to get the best of the best as far as Quadcopters are concerned then you should cast your eye towards DJI. The company manufactures the best of the best.

Their Phantom range offers exceptional value for money and great performance in quadcopetrs. You really can’t do any better then the products that are released by this company.

RC Aircraft

My name is Ralph Saxton and I have been building and flying Model airplanes since the 1940’s.

Over the years I have accumulated a large assortment of plans.

This site is dedicated to the U-Control builders and flyers that have come back to the flight circle.

We old timers remember the Jim Walker U-Reely control handle, Testers products and maybe some Ambroid glue on our fingers. 

U-Control handles now have radios in them. We have come a long way since the Fly Baby, Baby Bee and Cox’s  first plastic airplanes on some string.

The “1/2 A” collection is a reminder of the Cox, Scientific, Comet, Ace Whitman, Veco and  Megow offerings of yesterday.

There is a nice selection of profile Carrier Planes married to 42″ Ringmaster wings.

I hope these plans spark a few of you to get out the old Exacto Knife and go work building.
