Amazing Ultra Micro Quad
The tiny Blade FPV Nano QX quadcopter is a totally immersive RC experience you can take everywhere. Incredibly light and surprisingly durable, the FPV Nano QX can be flown in spaces no bigger than an office cubicle. Its potent motors are smooth and Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX radio technology delivers outstanding 4-channel maneuverability. But it's the exclusive SAFE technology built-in that offers a quadcopter experience like no other. That's because the specially tuned SAFE system makes sophisticated flight envelope protection possible so flying is incredibly easy and more fun-even if it's your first time. Plus, the Spektrum ultra micro FPV camera is already installed which means you can get started in the short time it takes to charge the batteries.
The Blade FPV Nano QX features Horizon Hobby's newest innovation in RC flight, SAFE technology. This revolutionary system optimizes the FPV Nano QX for precision hovering and accuracy in two flight modes.
Pitch and roll limits are locked to offer a limited flight envelope while electronic self-leveling offers positive stability the instant you release the sticks.
Pitch and roll limits are removed and pilots can fly with the enhanced precision AS3X technology delivers in all aerobatic maneuvers.
Put Yourself in the Pilot's Seat
First-Person View (FPV) with a headset creates an immersive RC experience that virtually puts you in the pilot's seat. Live video is transmitted from a camera on the model to you so you can have the sense of flying from inside the model.
Fat Shark Headset
The Spektrum ultra micro FPV system installed along with the Fat Shark Teleporter V4 headset included makes it possible to virtually put yourself in the pilot's seat right away. All you have to do is charge the batteries.

It is still a nice stable quad (especially due to the SAFE technology) and help with learning to fly.
TLDR; I would be much happier if this quad was built sturdier, even if it was more expensive. Hubsan x4 is more more agile and can take a beating too.
Hope this helps you make an informed buy
The reason for choosing this rig is that it is totally ready to fly and upgradable. Charge the batteries (one headset, one quad) and it is ready to go. More importantly for learning - it is great indoors. No trips to the park or other hassle. Just charge the battery and fly. I think this is really important for training because a little practice each day is way better than a marathon session every week or so.
The other great thing is that there is an upgrade path and the upgrades can all be used with more powerful machines like FPV racing rigs. The transmitter -is not- a Spectrum brand transmitter or full size. That's one possible upgrade - a full size transmitter with all the bells and whistles. A full size transmitter can store settings so you can use it with the nano qx and then switch to other settings and fly something else, like an outdoor fpv racer. Another possible upgrade is better FPV goggles. The Fat Shark teleporter V4 works well and I've certainly worn it plenty, but I will be upgrading eventually, maybe. The Teleporter V4's will work fine with other FPV systems and they have head tracking (which nano qx doesn't use). Maybe I won't upgrade for a while...
Oh yeah - I'm moderately nearsighted with strong astigmatism. I wear the goggles without glasses or contacts. There are diopter kits available and I have one on order - but things seem fine with just my regular unaided eyeballs. The teleporter v4's will accept the fatshark diopter lenses, I'm looking forward to testing them. Maybe the picture quality will be better with aided eyeballs. All I can really say about picture quality is "seems fine" because I can see. Actually, I can see better than when I walk around without my glasses - a lot better.
The quad itself is a beautiful piece of engineering. It's light, rugged, and responsive. It isn't quite the same as the non-fpv nano qx because that model doesn't have a camera mount. I can't say much about the motors because they've been fine. The fpv version comes with a "45C" version of the battery while the non-fpv has a "25C" version. I don't know what the specific differences are, but the 45C runs at least 50% longer and fits a bit snugger. The snugness helps because after a wreck or two the 25C battery can slide rearward and the 'copter develops a backwards drift. Note - a slight push fixes the battery position but requires flying the quad over to yourself and de-goggling.
As for range, I've only flown indoor and the signals have reached about 40ft with a wall and bookshelf in-between me and the quad. The picture sometimes fades but that seems to be my fault because I tend to tip my head forward which puts the antenna at a very bad angle.
So, what are the annoyances? Replacement props are more expensive than I like. Also, it is a pain to re-bind the transmitter if you mess up the binding. Luckily, there are lots of helpful youtube videos.
