WLToys V262 Quadcopter Drone: Allegheny Observatory, Pittsburgh PA
$90 high performance quadcopter ($80 for US customers, click on US warehouse to get price ). Great with GoPro Hero 3 or Mobius Action Camera. WLToys V262 Cyclone http://www.banggood.com/WLtoys-V262-Cyclone-2_4G-4CH-6-Axis-RC-Quadcopter-With-Camera-RTF-p-77720.html?p=RB0922217402201307U3
Can lift a GoPro Hero 3, but I like aerial video with my lightweight Mobius HD Action Cam. http://www.banggood.com/Mobius-Full-HD-Sports-Camera-1080P-30FPS-720P-60FPS-For-Multirotor-p-90648.html?p=RB0922217402201307U3
This flight is at Pittsburgh’s Allegheny Observatory at Riverview Park. The video is unedited straight from the camera’s memory card.

As I always recommend, beginners please consider this cheaper option to learn to fly on before purchasing an expensive high-end quadcopter such as DJI Phantom or even AR Parrot. Keep in mind that crashing is inevitable for all RC beginners (it’s a right of passage). The V262 is somewhat durable, as is the Phantom. But stuff happens. It also takes time learning to maintain orientation on a quadcopter. Losing orientation in flight can lead to bad results. Would you like to risk a $100 or a $1000 quadcopter while learning to fly? Once you’re comfortable flying, then consider the higher-end models (that is if you’re still interested).
