  • Quad friendly drone

    Anyone out there flying drones? I'm looking for recommendations for easy to operate models for a c6/7 quad. I have use of my arms, but limited hand function. I have a cheap one right now, looking to upgrade.

    I, C7, won a DJI mavic pro (about $1k) at a fundraiser. It's a really nice drone with crash avoidance features and spectacular optics. The controller has a number of small buttons that can be difficult with limited finger strength. I found that I could fly it with my level of hand function but the setup was very difficult. I don't have the ability to pinch, so things like plugging in a mini USB cable could take 10 minutes instead of the 10 seconds for fully functional hands. Where I live, in a steep wooded area, also is not the best for learning how to fly. I just gave it away as a Christmas present to an AB who has lots of outdoor activity interest.

      There was a quad that lived in Dubai. He had some YouTube videos of himself flying drones. He cut short sections of PVC pipe 1" and drilled a hole in the bottom big enough to firmly fit on to the joystick knobs. He could then insert his thumbs for operation. (cHris?)
