    From a lot of posts here, the Syma seems to be the go-to quad for leaning to fly, especially indoors. There are 2 versions though: the X5c and X5C-1. I forgot how to tell the difference, I think by the logo on the top of the quad. I figured that for the price it was too hard to pass up. And who couldn't use more quads??? ;)

    That is a great price and it's what I learned on. Lots of fun to fly around in the house and doesn't do that bad outside in a 5mph breeze. I still have it and a X5SW which has FPV. It doesn't cut the wind as good as the X5C and the flight time is a little less but the FPV works pretty good for a toy;) And they both take pretty good pics and video to boot;)

    My 8 year old son does pretty well with my Phantom, but it will be nice to have something that he can use without me getting nervous about crashing... lol...
