    For $75 I'd go with some quad copter staples, extra batteries and props will help spend some of the left over money. Since you know nothing about them, you'll want something tough and with different rates and speeds you can grow with.

    Small quad: Hubsan X4 and its variants
    Medium quad: Syma X5C and its variants and possibly look at the offerings from Sky Viper

    The Mavic is great, but probably not for beginners. It does do a lot of the flying for you so you're not really flying it, more like getting it in the air and pushing it around.
