Hi all, my son has out grown his Hubsan mini quad copter, what would you guys recommend as the next step up. Ideally something a bit bigger say 10 inch diameter for under 100. Any advice would be great , thanks.

A fabulous next step up quad would be the v959 by wl toys.

This here...

Has a built in camera , although you need to upgrade the memory card. Iv had one of these and probably half the people on the forum have as well lol.

I'll post more info up later on when I have time, but for now have a quick read and watch a few youtube vids to give you an idea.

Parts are dirt cheap and very easy to replace, a whole arm, motor and props are like 6 delivered from hong kong.

That one is a rebranded WLToys one.

The same basic control board runs them all, just programmed differently to suit application.
Pick you preferred price and supplier - just make sure you order mode 2 transmitter, or one that can be changed.
