    dr1, best for size
    qr1, best handling
    All I need now is to set a new lap record.

    DR-1 would be indoor only except for the calmest of days. If you are new to flying, you would be less likely to break something (plates, figurines, etc.) with the DR-1. I'm assuming you are flying in your living room here.

    I see DR-1 as a solid trainer, less responsive but good to learn boxes, figure 8's, and to train yourself how to fly in orientations other than just staring at the tail side.

    QR-1 has more upside. Easy to fly in normal mode but faster response and more challenging in expert mode.

    IMO both are well suited to indoor flight simply because of their size. The DR-1 would have a harder time outside if there was any wind. The QR-1 has enough power to fight a breeze to very light wind but that power might get you into a little trouble in a small room indoors . I know as am almost out of blades from flying the QR-1 in my bedroom.

    yep i will use it in my living room. i have used something like the dr1 and i found it fun so i want to get one of these.
    my living room has a ceiling thats 19ft tall so if i lose control i can probably regain it.

    does traxxas have extra batterys for these yet?

    Both work indoors but IMO they are different animals. QR is fast and darty, DR is very docile, maybe it's because of the weight cuz... it's built like a tank

    The DR-1 looks pretty stout but it has a lot more moving parts. Things like servos linkages squash plates, fly bar, etc. The QR-1 only has motors and blades with a circuit board. Just my opinion but I think the QR-1 will prove to be more durable, there is just less to go wrong.
