An excellent beginner's guide. Well-illustrated with easy to understand descriptions of products, procedures, and lessons to avoid learning the hard way.The author provides POC information at the back of the book; when he encourages his readers to contact him, he means it! I had a question regarding control movements for a specific flight maneuver and he replied to my email within hours, providing recommendations and additional insights.I'd definitely recommend this easy-reading book to anyone beginning this hobby.

This book will save you time and money. I am a newbie to flying drones but not to reviewing books. As a college professor, my job for 40 years was to write and critique books and manuscripts. Mark Smith has done an excellent job capturing the essence of the drone hobby in a brief, readable and enjoyable book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants an overview of flying quadcopters and drones. Mark doesn't miss the essentials but he also doesn't provide extensive technical details that tend to turn off the average reader. I was able to read Quadcopters and Drones in an evening but have kept it my flight box for future reference. This should be in everyone's library who enjoys flying quadcopters and drones for pleasure or as a professional.

One of the better books in learning how to fly quadcopters. This book is a how to for beginners, it gives you a understanding of how to control your quad in the air. By reading and following the steps and advice contained in this book you'll learn how to fly your quad remotely, safely, and securely. I recommend reading this book before choosing the type of quad you would like to fly.

This is for very early beginners. It covers the basics pretty well, but leaves many questions; but gives plenty of references where you can find out more. I found no errors or very outdated information; and the author doesn't attempt to steer the reader toward any product, brand, or level of sophistication. I enjoyed his casual style and he doesn't attempt to intimidate the reader with jargon (but he does explain some of the more common acronyms, words, and phrases). This book is perfect for people just starting to "think" about UAVs, to be read well before actually having one.

If you are planning on getting into flying Drones and Quadcopters, this is the book to read. Mark explains everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask about the subject. if you have read any of his metal detecting books then you are familiar with the way he writes. He will get down in the weeds when he explains something but he makes it all understandable and throws in some of his own experiences on what to do and what not to do. If you are into photography he goes into some detail about how you can use one of these for taking pictures and some of the better ways to do it. If you are into metal detecting you can use one for searching an area to see what the terrain is like that you will be hunting. I was not into drones or quadcopters until I read the book, I got about half through and started investigating getting one for myself. If you are not sure what kind to get for what ever application have no fear, Mark goes into each one and gives a good explanation for them. I highly recommend this book.

By "beginner" I think he means 8 to 10 years old. If the reader falls in that bracket, they will enjoy this book. It's what I call a "stretch" book. The author did not have enough material so he made the print large, big space between paragraphs, and empty spaces on on some pages.

I'm an avid drone enthusiast. I wanted to see someone else's take on it. I was impressed.His explanations were well written, Plain and simple.You'll like it.If you are looking to operate commercially you will want some additional reads to compliment this. its inexpensive and good.
