Before I purchased my Phantom I bought a couple cheap ones to practice on. One was the UDI which I thought was junk, the other a Syma X5c which I thought was a lot of fun. I also have a Blade Pico which is fun. I got pretty good with the Syma but it is light and I was being stupid flying it in wind, lost orientation and then signal and lost it. I was kinda testing its limits so I knew it might happen and for around $50 I got my monies worth. I ordered another last night lol. What do you guys recommend for around the $100 mark?
