The Hubsan H107D X4 quadcopter with FPV camera is a small scaled quadcopter which is filled with loads of features, a inbuilt camera, integrated 3.4 inch LCD display as well as a micro SD card space in order to shoot the video on the display screen. This Hubsan X4 Quadcopter is ideal for both outdoor and indoor flights together with the support of a very steady six-axis flight handle system which also has a changeable, sensitive gyroscope.
There are several “micro copters” on the market and there is no doubt that Hubsan is the leader in the mini quads market. The Hubsan X4 Quadcopter comes truly ready to fly right out of the box. All you need to do is charge up the LiPo battery and add 4 AA batteries to the transmitter/FPV monitor and you’re ready to go.
Unless you’re already familiar with the size of these mini quadcopters, the “fits-in-the-palm-of-your-hand” scale is quite amazing, for how they perform. The design and build quality of this tiny craft is surprisingly magnificent. The body is a two-piece clamshell design of moulded plastic, the arms hold the motors securely and there are rubber feet on each leg.
While the size of the Hubsan X4 Quadcopter itself is quite compact, the transmitter/controller is impressively full-sized. It features two stick controllers, with a spring-loaded rudder/aileron stick and trim buttons for each stick. There is a switch for stabilised/manual flight control modes and the menu option for advanced mode, so if you want to do flips and tricks, the manual (advanced) mode will allow you to do so.
The MicroSD card slot and USB port are on the side and record button above the right stick allows you to record what your FPV camera sees. The LCD screen gives you instant feedback from the on board camera on the Hubsan X4 Quadcopter to the LCD 4.3” screen on the transmitter. This makes it possible to fly by first-person-view, hence the FPV in its name!

It is very important that you operate the Hubsan X4 Quadcopter in a safe environment and adhere to the laws as regards flying such equipment in public areas. It is best that initially you fly it indoors until you have mastered the straightforward controls before venturing outdoors!
Some reviewers have noted that in certain environments and conditions, for example through walls and around corners that the video signal may become static or cut out. In this case you need to ensure that you and the transmitter are in sight of each other during flying.
This drone has some minor but nice features which make using it more fun. The drone, with its 6 axis control system makes turning more agile than other non 6 axis drones. The battery is also able to fully charge within 30 mins. Faster charging means less time between flying sessions and less batteries needed.
Having a camera on your drone is always really fun, even if they camera isn’t very good. Not only can you see what your drone is facing in real time on the controller, but you can also record footage and watch it later.
Overall this drone is very solid and fun to play with. It also looks cool, so you can show it off to your friends.
