That's one other hobby that I've been avoiding since they started coming out. I always seem to get into something that requires the outdoors yet I hardly seem to have any time off to play. From what I do know about quads is the DJI models are like buying Apple. Plug and play,easy out the box. I think they use propitiatory blades and batteries,not sure. They have a more basic Phantom $600-800 and a high end Inspire that costs over $3,000.

A lot of people that get into it go and build their own kit with whatever blades,motors,frame,controllers,gps,FPV glasses, and mounts. These are better for the tinkerers that want to customize it to carry a certain payload or replace things cheaper. I think the price would be about the same and it's like people that buy a pc from the store ready to go versus building your own. I build my own pc's and if I get into these quads may just build it for less with custom everything.

But for $20 for the little cheapies it's good to figure out if it's going to be a temporary plaything or you spend $1000 next week.

The cx 20 is so popular cause you can get a decent basic quad for 250.00 set it up way u wish while learning about setting a quad up. Out of the box it is fun. Can add your camera fpv telemetry upgrade props motors batteries and the fc while learning how they tick.
