Wave Razor WiFi FPV Altitude Hold with 720p Camera - Good Value with this one (17 min 11 sec)

I really like this quadcopter. If feels like it has a sturdy build, not too heavy but not too light. The prop guards are great for indoor flying to prevent damaging the props or stuff in the house. You can also remove the prop guards if you want.

The altitude hold works well and contributes to this being a super stable flyer. The wifi feed does lag, but pretty much all quadcopters that use wifi for FPV are going to lag some. The great thing about this quad is while the video quality is not full HD, it still looks really good and fairly crisp for what it is. It also has a pretty wide field of view.

This quad is not fast by any means, but does get a bit zippy in the highest rate. Flips are not as tight as I would have liked and the quad loses some altitude when flipping. You get two batteries and I have been getting about 7-minutes of flight time which is excellent.

Contixo F17 Plus Unboxing Review and Flight Test - STRAIGHT UP BUGS 3 CLONE!! (27 min 32 sec)

I am stating the obvious, but stating it nonetheless. I have seen quite a few clones of the MJX Bugs 3 (which I also own). This one comes with a 4K action camera and an aluminum hard case.

FQ777 FQ17W WiFi FPV Foldable Pocket Drone with Altitude Hold (16 min 59 sec)

The DJI Mavic started a trend of foldable quadcopters. This one flies just fine and folds up small enough to fit in your pocket. Also comes with a carrying pouch. Altitude hold and wifi fpv work about as well as other quadcopters in this category. I get about 7-minutes flight time with this one.
