    I have a friend that is semi bed ridden with lymes disease. I would like to get him a small quad to crash around the house to keep his mind stimulated. I hear Syma is good. Suggestions with links would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I want something that can take a few mishaps without constant repairs.

    Totally disagree.... All my best products are from China. I buy from a place called banggood.com and I think you will like it too. They do lots of accessories for all types of drones and sell great ones too

    I know most everything comes from China. I live in the US. Ordering directly from China doesn't really help the US sellers. I will support the US sellers. You can buy where you want. Thanks for your input.

    Oh, they can take a 'few' mishaps. They last about six months in my constant testing of the effects of rapid deceleration on UAVs. I still have my original Hubsan X4 which has survived numerous deceleration events as well as a number of downpours. I've replaced my fair share of props (even with the prop guards) but the little bugger still trucks along. I like the Integrix inside because it's smaller and quieter.

    As I already stated in the other similar thread.
    Buy only BNF models and acquire a Spektrum DX6i radio to bind for them. ;-)
