If you've never flown a Quad copter before, then this is the drone to get!  The X8 i safe, light, easy to fly, gentle, and able to take great pictures & video and still be a lot of fun !!! 

Ask anyone who is into Quadcopters what was their first drone?  Chances are it will be this one or a model just like it.  I've had mine for two years now; she still flies great, and she will always be one of my favorites.  Last year she was number one on our list.  This year she's number 7, but in my heart and for the owners of this beginner Quad she'll always be our first. :)
Luckily for you she's even better!

The following criteria was used to determine rank and order:

  • Flight time (the longer the flight, the happier you'll be),
  • Durability, Quality (You'll crash and durability is vital), 
  • Brand name integrity (You want the best brands and models),
  • First Person View (FPV, you see what the Quad sees on a phone or controller monitor)
  • GPS (Locks the Quads position by Satelite increasing control and minimizing fly-aways.)
  • Controller Distance (the farther the range the better.)
  • Camera and Video Quality (A good camera makes a big difference)
  • Motor type (Brushless, direct Drive and new technology increase motor efficiency & power.) 
  • Flight characteristics, (tricks and other features that stand out)
  • Special Features (some Quads have really cool features like "follow me, and altitude hold, and return to home and awesome controllers and other things that are really nice.)
  • Price (Best bang for the Buck.) 
  • Professional insights and reviews (Myself and a team of other Drone enthusiasts reviewed each drone and gave insight into this list. Please feel free to share your thoughts too!)
