The LaTrax Alias is an excellent way to begin if you need to learn the best way to fly a quadcopter manually. The reason it’s a decent quadcopter is it’s incredibly durable and because it’s the full manual flight mode. What this means is you could learn the best way to fly without worrying about crashing.
Since it has large propellers it also offers great yaw power, thus doing bank turns and ’s about 7 inches wide, more and pirouette plays would not be a trouble. It’s also large enough to take a camera that is little camera. I seen folks do FPV and instal video transmitters.
It might look just a little bit pricy in the beginning, but it’s assembled nicely and all of the components are replaceable, even should you find a way to break it.
