Check this out... Quad Racing

I'm getting a QAV250.. can buy em as a complete kit with screen FPV for $400AUD shipped.

So, how hard are these things to drive? Did you go the FPV route?

Flew it a few times to take some videos, it's fairly easy to fly. I never flew anything before but came from an R/C off-road racing background. The transition was fairly easy. I didn't do the FPV yet, not sure if I want to spend the extra cash. This was purely an impulse buy. I saw that video and literally bought a quad a few days later....unless I start taking this on vacation or different areas it could get boring. We'll see, as for the quad your looking at, I can't really give any info as I just started on my own journey a couple weeks ago. I'd be interested to hear your findings when/if you purchase that one. That would probably be my next step. Those things are fast!! The DJI is more for photos/video of scenery. Racing FPV would be really fun. Good luck!
