chapru fpv is on a quav 250.

When you buy your battery get the high discharge stuff. Regular 30c batteries wear out and die on you.

The Luminier QAV 250 comes in a "RTF" version which is actually a bind and fly. It comes with all the components you need except a reciever and your own video system.

Regardless of his rc experience I think a QAV250 can be a good first quad to newbies of rather talented nature because of how crashable they are. Grab a bunch of extra props and give it a go. They take a lickin' and keep on tickin.

If you are looking to "cheap out" Hobbyking sells the FPV 250 with everything you need except the control board and the reciever for $100 instead of the $500 you will be spending on a RTF QAV 250.

For my skill level I doubt I there is any difference between hobbyking and the expensive stuff, but I bet a "pro" who can really push the performance limits would notice.

Naze32 is a great control board for the FPV 250.

No it's not. You learn by piling on the flight hours until your muscle memory gets the controls. For my v911, when i was starting meant as soon as the charge is complete, flying it, and the putting it back in the charger. I have a tiled floor to practice my hovering and every half hour, i take a break, turn the chair, fly until the battery runs out, and then go back to work while the battery chargers. During that time i learned, i have a ton of paper cuts and crashes, so it would be pretty easy to imagine what my house would look like if that had been on a more powerful motor.

You can't conveniently practice on a brushless as it will likely mess up you furniture, to get the same mileage, you will have to step out of the house and to a park if you don't have a large yard, every half hour, for atleast two months. You never have to worry about messing up the quad, what you have to be worried about are the damages and injuries.

Good point, its nice to be able to fly and learn from the comfort of your house. I learned "from the house" on a nano qx and even though I fly larger quads now I still really get a kick out of the thing.

Should we steer newbs towards 250 sized quads? I think so, they seem plenty a fine a learning platform to me.

Once they're good with orientation, probably. But until then, they could very easily fly into themselves. 5030 props are plenty sharp.
