Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"It takes my stock USB charger 2 hours to charge a 380mah battery, that's ridiculous!"
_
"The only downside is the battery doesn't last long, however we bought a crash pack that came with an extra so they always have one charging! "
_
"BUT the remote went dead before the battery in the quad ran down!"
_
"Some have complained that the battery doesn't last long enough but this is pretty much a universal problem for any device using battery power to lifts it's own weigh plus the battery."
_
"I recommend picking up some 500mah batteries for this."
_
"Don't even consider not buying extra batteries and a good multi charger along with this."
_
"Great quad received as advertised and quick shipping loads of fun but would opt for more batteries and muti charger."
_
"it eats batteries and takes 45-60 minutes to charge but would highly recommend"
_
"Get spare parts and extra batteries and a good charger (not the USB one that comes with it)."

Blade

Blade:
"Also, I can't say anything at all for other Parrot owners on the Parrot forum site--half the people who are able to repair theirs themselves end up putting the blades on in the wrong order, and so their Parrot's behave like something's still wrong."
_
"It is very hard to learn how to fly, you will crash and break your blades."
_
"Also while trying to learn the controls on this Quadcopter I've damaged blades."
_
"Otherwise, you will be damaging blades and perhaps motors while learning to operate.2."
_
"Blade guard and spare blades are recommended as they will get destroyed on every crash."
_
"It comes with 4 extra blades but I recommend buying extra blades as well, they are pretty cheap."
_
"It's an odd bird, because it's too expensive to be a casual toy (better choices would be would be Estes Proto X or Syma X11), not advanced enough to be a serious pilot training platform (Blade Nano QX), and while the camera takes decent quality footage it randomly shut off, lost my footage, and was almost always wobbly."

Camera

Camera:
"I haven't tried the HD camera yet but no matter...I'm so happy with the performance and value of this item that if the camera didn't work, I'd still love it! "
_
"I am very disappointed with the camera since I paid extra for the upgraded camera."
_
"I wouldn't recommend buying this for the camera."
_
"I love the basic no cam x4 but can't recomend either of the camera models,"
_
"Excellent Item., Camera works Great"
_
"Get a small micro SD card, 16GB is more than enough (class 10- I use the Samsung brand).This is also a great camera if you are thinking about building a racing quad, such as a ZMR250, or a QAV250."
_
"The camera is decent, but don't count on getting fantastic footage."
_
"The higher resolution camera is well worth this version over the 1MP version."
_
"I bought this after owning larger quadcopters to play around with in smaller areas and it is a blast it's very well made and the camera is very good"

Charging

Charging:
"Stock charger is not good at all and with counted minutes of flying time you really need 5 batteries to have and a charger that can support multiple batteries charging at once without a danger to destroy them or make fire."
_
"I originally gave this product 1 star because I received wrong color, the included USB charger was dead on arrival and the screws that should fasten the underbody to the upper body are short and do not reach the upper body."
_
"It takes my stock USB charger 2 hours to charge a 380mah battery, that's ridiculous!"
_
"Don't even consider not buying extra batteries and a good multi charger along with this."
_
"Play for 10 minutes and charge for close to an hour kind of zaps some of the fun out of it."
_
"Now I have to get a set of bateries and a good reliable multi-battery charger, suggestions welcom! "
_
"Great quad received as advertised and quick shipping loads of fun but would opt for more batteries and muti charger."
_
"it eats batteries and takes 45-60 minutes to charge but would highly recommend"

Control

Control:
"It is still quite hard to control, even after ~40 of the 5-minute flights (as practice).I was able to take videos using the camera with both a 2GB micro SD card (formatting using FAT) and an 8GB micro SD card (formatting using FAT32); both worked great."
_
"I also gave him the crash kit accessory pack, and that is a good idea, as the copter is a bit hard to control, and I keep finding little propeller blades around the house."
_
"Hard to control at first until I got the hang of it."
_
"This is a very fun little flyer but a little hard to control."
_
"Also while trying to learn the controls on this Quadcopter I've damaged blades."
_
"Very hard to control, broke the first day of flying."
_
"pretty easy to learn to control."
_
"For indoors in 'beginner' mode I do recommend you to lower sensitivity for all controls down to 30% from default."
_
"Small and fun, easy to control..."
_
"It's fun to fly this and learn to control it, but it takes a LOT of patience and persistence to get good at it."

Crash

Crash:
"I've crashed it countless times and so far, the only real damage has been to the propellers."
_
"You fully realize this when you pick it up off the ground after that crash, and it looks like a limp, dead, alien bird with a broken back, and you immediately remember all the mention of 'Carbonated Steel' components in the 'manufacture' of the thing."
_
"It is very hard to learn how to fly, you will crash and break your blades."
_
"Def recommend getting the crash pack for spare propellers."
_
"Blade guard and spare blades are recommended as they will get destroyed on every crash."
_
"be e48yA11roVwAnd here's a funny video at the park near my house with a PitBull dying to get a piece of the copter and a crash compilation displaying how durable this quad is:http: youtu."
_
"I'm a novice and after a few early crashes, it's becoming easier to handle."
_
"Well it does, I crashed it into a lake, a lake!"

Flying

Flying:
"Kind of hard to fly so we attached fishing line to it so we wouldn't lose it."
_
"It was a bit hard to use from the get-go but after a week he was able to fly and land well :)"
_
"Stock charger is not good at all and with counted minutes of flying time you really need 5 batteries to have and a charger that can support multiple batteries charging at once without a danger to destroy them or make fire."
_
"Easy to fly, though hard to see what direction it's pointing during daylight."
_
"Scared to fly off the balcony cause it is a bit windy but should take the risk soon!"
_
"It flys very well and stable, picturequalitie is mediocre..."
_
"Great starter to get used to flying drones"
_
"Very hard to control, broke the first day of flying."
_
"It's super fun to fly in expert mode, but you can also get into trouble really fast."
_
"I love this copter and have been flying it for a few months now."
_
"It's fun flying this quad at dusk- the LED's make for a really cool effect."

Guard

Guard:
"The rotor guard is easily missed because it's taped to the underside of the white plastic."
_
"- Propellers are easily damaged (even with guard) so buy more (comes with some but they are specific to each motor).- Fast spinning propellers are dangerous and hurt a lot if it hits you."
_
"This unit is both safer and less likely to get damaged with the rotor guard installed."
_
"Blade guard and spare blades are recommended as they will get destroyed on every crash."
_
"As for stunts, this drone does flips best without the (included) blade guard installed."
_
"Still, get spare parts (like props at the very least) ... get spare batteries (I get appx 7-8 minutes of flight time per charge) ... and put on the prop guard (it's taped to the underside of the tray) ...... and have fun! "
_
"The rotor guard is easily missed because it's taped to the underside of the white plastic."
_
"Comes with a nice prop crash guard, so you really don't need to get the $20 crash kit."

Learning

Learning:
"Learning because some instructions, in the booklet given, are not clear."
_
"not as easy to fly as I thought it would be, I am still learning."
_
"Otherwise, you will be damaging blades and perhaps motors while learning to operate.2."
_
"probably a good learning tool for bigger more expensive ones, but i have never flown a bigger one so i dont know."
_
"this does it nicely and I had no learning curve so I could start instantly."
_
"Fun small quad for learning to fly quads."
_
"I'm still learning how to use it, but I am having fun."
_
"I am both learning and enjoying the Hubsan X4 H107C."

Motor

Motor:
"I never got to actually take it outside for a lift same day received tried to change the propeller it broke off motor & propeller."
_
"After visual inspection, I saw a wire broken loose from the motor."
_
"I received a defective with a faulty motor."
_
"While the drone arrived promptly (faster than the estimated shipping time) something was wrong with one of the motors and it doesn't fly properly (it elevates, but spins around wildly so that you can't actually film anything)."
_
"Otherwise, you will be damaging blades and perhaps motors while learning to operate.2."
_
"When the quadcopter crashed a second time, however, there were two major problems:1) One of the motors became very stiff and would not spin freely."
_
"I got pretty quick and replacing motors, bodies, etc., but the fact remains that it's a bit of a hassle."
_
"It seemed to work well at first, but we ended up replacing two motors fairly soon after getting it, then a new board, and then it was up in the air over a woods and suddenly lost all power."
_
"In case you didn't notice or your instructions are in Chinese, be aware of the A-B designations on both the props as well as the motor bases."
_
"I wouldn't expect to get any usable sound given the motor noise though so I think it's reasonable that sound recording is not included."

Price

Price:
"its not that great and very cheap"
_
"Not best quality but for price is perfect."
_
"It's fairly cheap so damaging it would not be a hardship, but it's also quite durable due to it's low mass so it can survive your early trails."
_
"It is hard to believe that in this price range you can purchase something so nice, but you can and Hubsan should be thanked for manufacturing such a wonderful product."
_
"This a remarkably well engineered device for the money."
_
"Inexpensive and loads of fun."
_
"Well worth the money."
_
"It comes with 4 extra blades but I recommend buying extra blades as well, they are pretty cheap."

"I never got to actually take it outside for a lift same day received tried to change the propeller it broke off motor & propeller."
_
"I also gave him the crash kit accessory pack, and that is a good idea, as the copter is a bit hard to control, and I keep finding little propeller blades around the house."
_
"If they're so 'experienced', then even their newest sales rep should have a memo clearly stating PROP INSTALLATION as one of the easiest, most common, mistakes any new drone owner could make."
_
"- Propellers are easily damaged (even with guard) so buy more (comes with some but they are specific to each motor).- Fast spinning propellers are dangerous and hurt a lot if it hits you."

_
"The x4 was fine except I had chewed up the propellers pretty good."

Size

Size:
"The remote has a range of about 300 feet, and at that altitude, this quad is very hard to see, being it is very small."
_
"The letters are very small and hard to read, but they are there, and If you overlook this, your copter won't fly correctly."

_
"Small and fun, easy to control..."

Video

Video:
"Stability will always be a problem with the video due to no dampening but a lot of it can be mitigated through decent video editing software with image stabilization."
_
"It can hover pretty stable but once you start flying back & forth the resulting video is hard to watch."
_
"The instruction manual is hard to understand, but I finally found some videos on youtube explaining how to turn down the sensitivity of the controls which helps a lot indoors."
_
"That can make it hard to find which video file is which if you leave several on the card from flight to flight."
_
"This thing is heavy and it's not good video."
_
"Not really an innovation, by the way, but just more common sense in utilizing the tiny, almost weightless, microSD cards to record video, as compared to the ridiculous USB dongle Parrot tossed out at users like some kind of favor."
_
"Stability will always be a problem with the video due to no dampening but a lot of it can be mitigated through decent video editing software with image stabilization."
_
"My camera was out of focus out of the box but I was as able to fix that after watching a few YouTube videos."
_
"Overall I am very happy, for $100 you get pretty much whole package that flies and records video and serves as an excellent toy."
_
"Decent quality video, though not too controllable and there's no image stabilization ."
_
"Neutral: Decent video quality, but what can you expect?"

Wind

Wind:
"I lost sight of the direction is was pointing and was unable to bring it back in the wind."
_
"Outdoors, even light winds will cause unsteadiness, but not too much to be able to compensate."
_
"Even with judicious calibration and trimming it will still drift randomly, especially outside where wind currents can be unpredictable even in calm weather."
_
"- Terrible in wind since it's so light."
_
"The quad can handle some pretty strong wind but it's hard to shoot good video unless it's reasonably calm."
_
"My advice: only fly in ideal conditions (<5 mph wind), and be warned the camera might develop problems after falling."
_
"It's fast and handles well, I am suprised how well it handles wind outside."
_
"It does great outside, I would not try to fly in winds over 5-7 mph though."
_
"It takes pretty crisp video in the right lighting, but if there is wind or a setting rising sun, you won't see much."
_
"Gets beat up pretty bad by the wind outside because of the small size."
_
"Even the SD camera isn't terrible, but unsteady flight in the air with a bit of wind can make for shaky video."
