Yep, there are some pretty fun little indoor quads that u can fly while you are waiting on better weather and they don't cost a lot either.

Now, addressing your itch to fly nitro. I think your best solution is to find a nice open space close to your home if you really wanna do nitro. I do that all the time with my nitros. As much as I love nitro, I know most neighborhoods don't appreciate being smoked out or having their kids woke up from their naps because of some loud engine screaming during the day or night.

Plus, if you are not proficient with flying, I wouldn't recommend operating anything within such a confined space. I would hate for you to lose control and hurt someone's child or pet or damage someone's property.

I do not pretent to be a quad guru so, I don't want to make any recommendations there. I do keep an eye out though and I recently bought a mini quad for $30 from a LHS that was pretty fun....of course after four days, it was ruined by some over eager boys. lol

I'd say check out Amain or Helidirect and see what intrests you. Amain is always sending me promotions on new quads coming out and I think you'd easily find a good one to scratch that RC itch.

You can look in my gallery for some of my home built quads and hex (6 arms) machines. I am not recommending this path to begin with, for you, but there are some videos of my humble AP shots that may spark your interest.
There are many pre built machines that are incredible for video or FPV and are almost hands free flying with stability and programing pre flight paths that I would have never dreamed of 10 years ago.
But start with a little cheap one to hone your piloting skills, and keep the cost down on repairs.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

And in addition to my above post. Here is a small but fun quad I bought for my grandgirls and they learned to fly these quite well, actually doing flips and other crazy moves.
This was about 2 yrs ago so I don't know whats available but these came with spare props and a ready to go transmitter for about $60.
My hand to show the size of the quad, can easily be flown indoors, provided you don't have a cat to knock it down.
Learning to fly a simple quad can train your fingers for later trying to fly a helicopter. Basicly all the same stick movements. But a helicopter is much more difficult, and can be very dangerous for a beginner.
.
I saw a guy at the hobby store with bandages all over him walking with crutches. I ask the store owner what happened. He said the guy insisted he could fly the 50 size machine by learning without help and went against the hobby shop owners recommendation to get help learning to fly.
When first flying when something goes wrong persons tend to pull both sticks all the way back, but this may make the machine leap backwards right at the operator depending on the setup, much hurt.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Here is basicly the same as I bought for my grandgirls, but the price has come way down.

.
One problem is the short flight time (6 mins) and the long recharge time. To make this more enjoyable I bought several batteries to charge the night befor.
Look around on Ebay and let us know what you might want to buy and we can give you some guidance before you buy.

Here is another with prop protectors for use indoors.
Anyway do a search on Ebay for quads, but befor you buy make sure it comes with a transmitter.
