Welcome

Hello, and welcome to the review of the Hubsan x4 H107C, the first review to be posted on dronesandwhatnot.com.

 

To start us off, the good points about this drone. 

First of all, this drone has excelent agility and maneuverability. This becomes evident in strong winds, when, although a bit jittery, this drone will cope with the wind perfectly, and will actually go even faster than normal whilst flying in the direction of the wind. Next, The camera. Although the standard model comes with a very low resolution, 0.3 megapixel, 720p camera, you can buy an upgraded version with a 2 megapixel camera. Or, if you think you can handle a soldering iron, you can buy a new camera module and swap it out yourself.

In addition, the camera is positioned in such a way that neither the propellor guard not the rotors can be seen whilst filming, which is complimented by the 6 axis gyroscope and so the ability to go incredibly high without cutting out of the drone can produce incredible video. Leading on from this, the propellor guard, unlike most drones, comes in the box, though you might have to hunt for it a little bit, as it is stuck to the underside of the plastic tray. Next, the LEDs that are mounted by the motors are ingenious, as they not only allow you to see the drone at night, but they indicate the orientation to you at a distance. Penultimately, the batteries that are used in this drone can be anywhere from 380mAh to 500mAh, allowing you about 6 minutes of flight time. Finally the remote control included with this can be used with any Hubsan product, and vice versa, and the batteries that are used for the Hubsan x4 H107L can be used in this drone, even though they offer a lower capacity, but the batteries for this drone can not be used in the Hubsan x4 H107L.

 

On the negative side, however, the camera, even when there is no wind, is very jittery due to the lack of a gymbal and so there is the possibility that your videos will make watchers dizzy. In addition, this drone is so small that if you do happen to crash, then, speaking from experience, it is very hard to find.

 

So, in conclusion, here ar the statistics:

 

Flyability: 2 modes, 8/10

Controlability: basic controls, 9/10

Stability: 6 axis gyroscope, 9/10

Filming: upgradable, records to micro sd card, no gymbal, 6/10
