Some appear to be authentic while others are obvious knock-offs of popular hobby-grade quads. There are other quads of even more questionable pedigree. Buying a micro quad with a gamepad-like transmitter or one that is controlled by an iPhone wont truly help you transition to bigger more capable quads. A neat aspect of micro quads is that you can fly them inside your home. Foul weather and darkness require not hamper your training. As I said you will run into things as you find out (and beyond). So be reasonable and stay away from animals kids the plasma screen Aunt Ediths urn... you get the concept.
However the DJI Phantom comes with GPS capability and a return home feature built in. Apart from the price difference between these two drones the way they are controlled is the next largest difference. Parrot with help from French researchers have created quite an intuitive app for iOS and Android called Parrot Freeflight. The AR Parrot 2.0 drone basically acts as a WiFi hotspot which connects to your smartphone or tablet and this allows it to stream HD video directly to your device.
Lets talk about the two most common methods to get into the quadcopter fad. Initially we will cover the popular micro or toy grade models and then we will discuss possible upgrade models like the DJI Phantom and other popular hobby class quadcopters and drones. Another way to discover quad flight is to acquire a micro quad. These are little quads that look and act the same method that larger quads do. They are actually amazing little machines. The benefit of discovering with a micro quad is that they have such low mass therefore little power driving their small propellers that they are really unlikely to cause any damage when you smack them into something.
Also such remote controlled drones are more befitting the environment in which they will be deployed. The new released DJI Phantom 2 is all equipped with a new remote control with great features like a gimbal control dial trainer port built-in rechargeable LiPo battery with a capacity of 2000mAh battery level LED indicators and throttle locking feature that holds the throttle stick in place when descending. Just letting the drone hover around however is not the end of the affair. A monitoring also is necessary which is done from a ground station.
