Default Looking for a Quad

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced quad for about $125.00. Something not too small, maybe diagonally 10-12 in, gyro system, gps would be nice too and possibly a camera. I've been flying r/c airplanes for 25 years, no heli experience. I'd like a ready to fly system, transmitter included.
Thanks!

Bill

Bill,
You won't find anything with those features for that price. It would be almost impossible to buy all of the components to build one with those features for $125.00.

You will have to increase the budget or lower the expectations.

I built a 450 quad, frame kit was $25.00, (4) ESC at $13.00, (4) motor set for $48.00, flight control CC3d for $18.00, PDB was $12.00. I did buy a go pro type camera for $80.00 with all sorts of mounts. I have not tried to put a GPS unit on it as I am just flying L.O.S. I have my Pixhawk with the gps, OSD, route flying, and all that. The Pixhawk setup was $180.00 then I had to build up another frame.

You will need to up your budget by double to get what you are looking for.
