Expensive for a beginner. Since it is GPS you dont really learn to fly. It has a good camera already installed, but you cant adjust the angle.

But you can turn off GPS hold. Since I am a beginner, why is GPS bad for learning?

You are not flying the quad. It is a much different control than a standard quadcopter. Unless you want to fly something like a phantom you will not gain any experience.

Good "training wheels" quad. That's not a bad thing - less time/money spent on parts and repair, but also a much slower rate of learning.

Adding a GoPro isn't recommended from what I read, and it's definitely not a good candidate for a gimbal. Something like a Mobius would probably be light enough, but I'm not sure how easy it is to tie an action cam into the FPV transmitter.

There's also an advanced model that has a better transmitter and better fpv range.

So the GPS hold feature will be good for people who just wanna fly around and taking video without knowing how to fly?

Yes, it won't prepare you to randomly take control of a racing quad and be a competent pilot, but it will allow you to take it out of the box, arm it, get airborne, take a video, zoom around the park (speed limited by GPS functionality), and land safely using the return to home feature.

My maiden voyage with a normal quad ended with a broken machine and extensive repairs required. That becomes much less likely with a quad like this.
