Yes, that was meant tongue in cheek. I'm looking at the list of the Drones for Beginners Alan put together, and one or two other models not on the list to learn some skills before really investing money. I'm realizing many of these are really tiny, 6" - 10" range. So, wondering if these really simulate what flying a larger Phantom or more professional / commercial use drones would be like? I've already learned from asking all of you questions that these will be more difficult to fly, but does the controllability of these super small ones translate to the larger? If the remotes are similar to use and reactions similar then it will be useful for me, as I've not flown RC's or been a big video game person. $80 - $120 is still money and don't want to just waste it but I have decided I do want to good training tool with a camera to practice all facets before making a larger purchase. Also, is a "Digital' Controller different from other controllers, or in other words, is a digital controller the standard? would it still have 'joy' sticks (not sure the correct term here) like I've seen on the few higher end DJI models I've seen? Last question, the first model on his list sounds popular, the UDI U*I*A HD+ and have circular plastic around the propellers, guessing just propeller guards? Is this a useful this for rookie drone flyer? And will the flight characteristics be very different than models without this? Thanks it, thanks in advance for your help!
