Default New To Quad Copters-Which to buy

I am new to quads and looking at buying a Blade QX2 or a Phantom. I am retired and need something easy to fly, gyro, gps, return to home, safe mode, ect.
I have easy access to Blade parts at a nearby HobbyTown . Will probably add a Go Pro camera later. What brand and model would you suggest? All help is appreciated.

If you have access to Blade parts locally, that would be my choice. I have the 1st generation Blade and it's been a very good quad.

Is it really easy to fly? I'm pretty new to this.

All of the newer breed of GPS enabled quads are very easy to fly. You might want to consider "cutting your teeth" on a smaller cheaper quad though.

This will teach you about how they basically fly, you can fly indoors and they don't break very easily.

No problem. There are lots of good choices out there today. If you truly want all the bells and whistles and have parts close by for the Blade, that would still be my choice. I'm waiting to see the long term reviews on a QX3 myself. I've had a 350 QX for quite a while and it has always been a very reliable system.
