What’s the best quad to learn on? Simple: a cheap one. You’re going to crash it so the cheaper the better. Small quads are great for learning because they’re usually cheap to repair, they tend to bounce back and more importantly, they won’t damage people or property any where near as much as a larger one will.
Trust me, I made the mistake of buying a larger expensive quad when I first started. Spent hours and $$$ rebuilding and repairing it until I finally decided to buy a little one I could fly indoors to build my skills on.
