Need advice to purchase my first drone

my first drone under $200

Recomandations for my first drone

Greetings and Salutations !!!

Love your website and videos !!!!

This 55 year old father of 2 is desperately looking to buy his FIRST quadcopter.

Unfortunately, I’ve never operated anything that is RC so I know I need something easy.

At the advice of someone on an RC forum, I bought a Eachine H8 Mini. I was told its cheap, can take a lot of crashes and if you can fly that one, you could fly ANY one.

So far I can’t even figure that one out … I push the throttle up ever so slowly but still cannot seem to control it. Not sure what I am doing wrong ????

Anyway, I’d really like to someday fly something with FPV so that when I DO master flying one, I can then start using FPV. Also, nothing mini or really small and up to $200 if possible.

That being said, I really like the Holy Stone X400C (based on Amazon ratings) but no one seems to mention them. Also, the JXD 510G and the JXD 510W looks good. What do you think of these?

Lastly, where do you recommend I buy it from? All of the websites seem to indicate they come from China, take weeks to arrive and have poor customer support, if any.

Your thoughts ???

Thanks !
