Default Nano Quadcopters flying away

I am shopping for a nano quad to play with indoors and sometimes outdoors as well. However, I have concerns about choosing one that will simply lose power and drop if flown out of range of the transmitter or otherwise losing the signal connection while being flown outdoors. Can anyone recommend a brand or model that will not fly off into the unknown by itself? Thanks!

What you want to look for is a flight control that has GPS so that you can set it to return to launch point if the radio signal is lost or the battery goes below a certain voltage.. I fly an HK450 size quad with a JIYI P2 flight control. What you want to avoid is a unit that can be set for autonomous flight. Then the only thing you have to do is never launch before your GPS fix is stable. D.H.
