If you’re considering buying one, here’s a list of the top 10 best brushed drones for indoor FPV! We’ve chosen to list only brushed drones because they’re cheaper compared to their brushless counterparts, and also much safer to use inside the house, for indoor FPV!

#5 GB104 X4

Best Brushed Drones for Indoor FPV: GB104 X4 quadcopter

  • FC: Naze32 (Brushed)
  • Acro/Rate mode: Yes

The GB104 X4 is one the most “racing looking” and bigger quadcopter on this list. It’s based on Naze32 and open source firmware, it has an adjustable camera angle with a 170-degree lens. The quadcopter’s frame is made of premium carbon fiber which make it extremely though and light, indeed if you consider the 104mm wheelbase it only weighs 37g (without battery, of course) and that’s pretty amazing.

The built-in DSM2 receiver gives the GB104 X4 a flight distance of 500-800 meters, while the 700mAh battery fuels it for 4 to 8 minutes, depending on the usage. The on-board camera is a 650TBL 170°CCD 720 x 576, no transmitter or batteries included.

With the adjustable camera angle and aggressive frame, the GB104 X4 is meant for pilots who love speed!

#6 LT105

Best Brushed Drones for Indoor FPV: LT105 quadcopter drone

  • Battery: 600mAh 3.7V X2
  • FC: SPRACING F3 (Brushed)
  • Acro/Rate mode: Yes
  • Dimensions: 100 x 100 x 58 mm

The LT105 mini brushed quadcopter is very similar to the GB104 X4 above, the main differences are the design and the non-adjustable camera angle. The wheelbase is 105mm and the propellers’ length is 60mm.

It features an F3 flight controller, a 500TBL camera and 6-axis gyroscope. The battery has a capacity of 600mAh and runs at 3.7V, this results in a flight time of around 4-5 minutes. The plus side is, you get two batteries in the box!

#7 Hubsan H111D Nano Q4

Best Brushed Drones for Indoor FPV: Hubsan H111D Nano Q4 Review

  • Battery: 180mAh 3.7V
  • FC: Proprietary
  • Acro/Rate mode: No
  • Dimensions: 68 x 68 x 25 mm

We finally have another RTF (Ready To Fly) quadcopter on the list, it’s the Hubsan H111D. The tiny drone’s dimensions are 6.8 x 6.8 x 2.5cm, with the insanely low weight of just 17.8g (including the battery).

Hubsan H111D available at: GeekBuyingBanggood

Because of that, the battery is pretty small with a capacity of 180mAh, but it gives the drone a flight time of around 6 minutes, which is not too shabby.

The quadcopter has a pretty short 50 meters flight range, but given the size you probably wouldn’t want to exceed that anyway. The Hubsan H111D Nano Q4 can also transmit 720p video to the big 4.3-inch LCD screen on the transmitter (included), really impressing for such a small indoor FPV drone.

#8 Blade Inductrix FPV

  • Battery: 200mAh 3.7V
  • FC: Proprietary
  • Acro/Rate mode: No

Look how cute that is! The Blade Inductrix FPV is a drone specifically designed for indoor FPV flying in even the smallest places.

The Blade Inductrix FPV packs a 200mAh 45C battery which offers a flight time of about 3-4 minutes.

Interestingly, this is what they also call the ready-to-fly Tiny Whoop!
