    I would like a nano stunt drone for practicing flying indoors and in areas with lots of obstacles, I want to set up a little obstacle course to test my skills, my budget is $40 USD.

    I had a proto-x and loved it. Tiny quad fits in palm of hand with power to do flips or move fast.

    Are you happy with the flight time and range?

    It was about a year ago but from memory it was about 15 min flight but only 30 min charge from controller which made it easy to bring it anywhere. I never tested range. The only con I had was it can't be flown outside unlike the phantom wind pushes this quad like a plastic bag in the wind.

    Another big pro to it was durability although I don't recommend it I was learning and flew it full power into a wall cutting power and crashing to the ground from head height and there wasn't a problem!

    I looked it up and the flight time is only 5 minutes and I would want one with about 10 minutes of flight and that can be flown outside but thanks for the recommendation.

    I was hoping someone would have already found a great one.

    any of cheersons mini quads are pretty good. Also the Syma X-5C good quad for what you are trying to do.
