Not a bad truck for an intermediate. It has fully proportional steering and throttle. Powered by a 390 brushed motor and 2s 1500mah Li-On battery. Add some oil filled shocks and you'd be set.

This is a great little quadcopter that's ideal for beginner's and experienced flyers and it's cheap, only $20!

Review of the CRAZON 18GS06 WIFI FPV R/C Car. It seemed ok initially though it has some issues which makes it difficult to recommend. The biggest issue is it loses bind which I think may be due to interference from the WIFI FPV. The WIFI also causes input lag for both the steering and throttle. The phone clip also won't attach to the controller and the WIFI camera is easily knocked out of position while driving.

The EVO is really nice. There's a few minor issues Autel needs to correct but the camera is stellar and it flies smooth. The dynamic tracking also works amazing. If Autel gets the bugs fixed soon then this will be a huge hit and serious competition to DJI.

Review of the Feilun FX133 Micro/Nano drone. It comes with an excellent controller. The drone itself flies well though its flight time is a bit short @4:20. It also has an AUTO LAND feature which I've never seen on an non-althold drone.

The new Syma X25W is a step in the right direction for Syma. It's not perfect but it's close. Overall a nice drone with a impressive 15 min flight time to go along with optical flow positioning.

The Happymodel Snapper7 is an awesome little 75mm tiny whoop. It comes with 3 LiHV lipos and a 6-in-1 digital charger. I LOVE how well this quadcopter flies. It is a blast to fly! All you need is a FrSky or FlySky Tx. The 19000kv motors are zippy too. It's a good deal IMO at $96.

Not a bad flyer but not great either but my biggest gripes are the short flight time (~5 mins) and most of all the 45 degree downward pointing camera that makes FPV flying nearly impossible.
