I am a beginner. I want to know what you guys are considering for a drone beginner. The first one for me will consider the price, function, appearance, etc. and you？
This is a company, RC Logger, that has a lot to offer the beginner pilot who wishes to learn on an advanced machine that will be able to grow with them. There are currently 4 primary platforms and now a 5th that has been announced. Specifically for beginners there are the RC EYE Navigator 250 and the RC EYE NovaX. The navigator is set up as a FPV racer and the NovaX is set up as a camera drone. Both machines offer some very capable flight mode protection options to keep the novice from hitting the ground. The GPS technology used is based on several standards and produces state of the art positioning including Z axis due to the presence of an altimeter. Beginner mode has support for deck height, geo fencing, hover upon handsfree and RTH capability. Their platforms support the ability to flash firmware up grades and customer support is often bragged upon on such forums as RCGroups. BTW the NovaX has been clocked at 60 mph so these drones really have what it takes once your skills have increased. Their user interface also includes the ability to change and setup flight controller parameter profiles via a bluetooth interface on your cell phone. These products will preserve your initial investment in batteries, chargers and such because you will have a drone that can grow with your experience. And RC Logger has also expanded their platforms by launching a new drone at InterDrone - http://www.suasnews.com/2016/09/powereye-m43/ - that has been very well written up as a challenger to DJI hardware capability. Now if they can promote their architecture well enough to get serious end user software applications to port onto their system then this company will become a serious contender in the "prosumer" market.

These products meet the needs that I am defining for myself, never flown a multirotor drone. Therefore I thought that I would share some information on these products. I have no financial gain associated with making this post. Regards, Michael
