coming from helis, amongst the advantages I see :
- relative no danger compared to helis (slow / small rotors)
- learning of flight attitude is safe and easy (face statio with helis are difficult)
- budget activity (~$200 is enough if you correctly choose you parts)
- easy to conceive/build structure
- low price motors, ESC, structures, radio
- like myself you can discover/learn lot of things (motors, ESC programming, ...)
- you can do slow FPV compared to plane
- and more simply immediate fun of flight !

of course you assume 4-8 more chances of failure, but a fried ESC can also occur on heli or plane and without external BEC you're done too... Instead you can run ESC at very small intensity, preserving them : when I land, everything's cool because we only draw 3-5A per ESCs...
