The BEST Way to Spend $40 — Estes Nano Proto-X Micro Quadcopter

Yep, I said it. I think this is the best way to spend $40. I have had such a ball with this little thing, and it’s been a great craft to share with my son and friends. It’s the only RC aircraft I have that I am 100% comfortable flying indoors…anywhere…around anyone. It’s to tiny that it doesn’t get broken when you crash it, it doesn’t break anything else…and it doesn’t hurt when it hits you! : ) Ask me how I know… LOL!

The props pop off if they come into contact with anything, and that design makes it very harmless. You will have to hunt for the tiny props if you hit something with them…but they can be found with patience. I am going to order some spares, though, just in case.

You can get this at your local hobby shops or at online retailers such as Tower Hobbies.
