    Sorry buddy. I can't recommend anything less then a Solo. After all this is a Solo forum.

    Yi Zhan x4 you can fly it inside and outside. It has great range and is small enough not to damage anything when you lose control.

    You are right to start on these cheaper quadcopters and learn how to fly. I started with a Syma X1. When it got boring I got a Traxxas Alias and that is still fun to fly. Learning to fly these smaller quads will give you confidence as a pilot when you move up to the Solo.

    I agree - learning to fly manually and even in acro mode will really help when (not if, but when) your bigger drones lose their GPS connection. Everyone should be able to fly manually by line of sight. Losing the FPV and the GPS at the same time does happen. I feel sorry for the folks who are out of luck when that happens and the best they can do is crash. Actually saw that at a contest once, I was amazed. That team did great until they lost autonomous control, then they were forced to crash their plane. It's a terrible position to put yourself in.

    The little drones are a ton of fun too - you can race them inside your house! I've been looking at this one for that purpose...

    I have no sense at all and like to jump in with both feet when I start something, so... Solo is my first (and second, and third) drone.

    Ugh... not counting 5 computer monitors, I have 13 flat screen TVs in my home (and screened lanai) - plenty of crash targets, no waiting!

    My Best recommendation:
    Xiaomi Mi Drone WIFI With 1080P Camera 3-Axis
    It has flying time of 27 minutes.
    Equiped with GPS + GLONASS + vision-based positioning for max precision.
    Link for the product and more details:
    New Arrival Xiaomi Mi Drone WIFI FPV With 1080P Camera 3 Axis Gimbal RC Quadcopter RTF-in Camera Drones from Consumer Electronics on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

    My Cheap recommendation:
    My recommendation for drone is SYMA X8 4K Camera 1080p Ultra HD Wifi 2.4G.
    The price is around 120$ and the company SYMA is highly recommended.
    Link to the seller with good reviews:
