Recommend a quadcopter for beginners with an Aurora 9 tx

I'm looking for a small sturdy quad for self training with an Aurora 9 tx. Preferably it'd be something cheap, easy, and can take the inevitable abuse of a newbie. I'm trying to avoid having to purchase the Futaba DM module and perform mods to it just to fly spektrum BNF's.

I tried to find a cheap Blade MQX but instead found this V929 Quad.
There are many Threads on it in the Multirotor forum.
Its a copy of the Blade for about 1/3rd the price, about $45.00 shipped.
I have 7 of them and others.
It comes with battery, charger and a Tx that has 4 levels of rates, from easy to hard.
The parts are cheap and it holds up well in crashes.

I have had a ton of fun with the qr ladybird.....rtf comes with a nice devo remote, but I wanted a bigger one so that's when I got the v929 mentioned above. The ladybird is much high quality but breaks easier but both are very fun!

If I were starting again I would start with the v929 then upgrade to a version 2 qr ladybird that still will do flips!

Thanks for the heads-up.
Just ordered one. The youtube videos look like fun.

Maybe a dumb (beginner) question: am I correct to assume that the v929 will bind with the Aurora 9 tx?

I'm not sure, probably not, but for $45.00 you get a 2.4 Tx with it!
Its 4ch with 4 levels and LCD screen that shows your inputs, etc.
