Pro Kit

The last kit is what I personally fly and I love it.  The BetaFPV Beta 75. Its great for both indoor and outdoor flight.  The frames are very durable.  The flight controller comes with Betaflight so you can program your Micro quadcopter to your liking.  The Z01 camera that comes attached has a great picture and good range.

For your Transmitter I recommend the Taranis Q X7.  This is a great transmitter it feels light in your hands and comes with a ton of options.  Frsky is a very popular option for receivers and can be found available on many Bind and Fly quadcopters.

Let’s pick some Batteries

Its important to stock up.  Once you get the hang of things you will be burning through batteries like there is no tomorrow.  In this portion of the article you will find all the great deals on batteries and chargers that are available for your new micro quadcopter.  I really like BetaFPVs batteries and have had very good luck with them.  Right now you can find a 8 pack of batteries for a great price.  You will be able to fly an average of 3 minutes per battery.  So with an 8 pack you will be able to fly for around 24-30 minutes.
