Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"OK, so here's a few recommendations, and I hope that it will save the people who read this some time and frustration:1) Get some spare batteries right away, as the X4 comes only with one."
_
"Don't buy the blue batteries from China as they are not that that good."
_
"I also had issues with the battery cables as they too are kind of weak and after several times charging and flying, taking the batteries in and out the wire will separate from the connector."
_
"My battery connection wires were soldered under the circuit board instead of on top making them venerable to damage when putting the battery in and out."
_
"As far as a 4-way battery charger, I don't recommend the most popular seller (the ThinkMax brand)."
_
"My only complaint is I have been unable to find batteries that will last more than 5 or 6 minutes so when I go outside I have a pocket full of batteries."
_
"I then started flying the H107C and though a little bit heavier, I am able to get 5 to 6 minutes with with the 380 mah battery (get spares)."
_
"Put in a fresh battery and amazingly all four motors ran perfect."
_
"Definitely get extra batteries and a multi-charger for even more fun."
_
"I love it, I just wish the battery charge lasted a little longer."
_
"I plan on getting replacement batteries to enjoy the experience a little more."

Blade

Blade:
"Initially we had some problems getting it to fly as we put the blades back on in the wrong sequence after putting on the protection ring (this come with the X4)."
_
"It flies well, doesn't break easily, and is easy to replace blades when they do break."
_
"I recently bought the AFUNTA 5x COMBO Transparent Clear Blades and they are much better."
_
"Just watch the blades, recommend getting the blade guards."
_
"Definitely need to buy the extra battery pack and extra blades but yeah I think it is good as a starter"
_
"Recommend getting extra blades!"

Camera

Camera:
"The only problem I had with the camera was the field of view."
_
"This is my second quad as I purchased a H107C originally and the camera button broke so I was going to return it but decided to keep it anyway and upgrade to the HD camera quad."
_
"The camera is not the greatest, and every wobble in the drone will find its way into your video, but the end product looks pretty good when transferred to and played back on a phone, and - hey, what do you *expect* for $65?"
_
"I broke one propeller - but replaced it with the spare ones provided (Best to buy extras).The only caveat is that the camera can only be turned on by a button onthe copter - NOT the control panel."
_
"HD camera is great quality for my expectations at this price level."
_
"camera is great quality"
_
"Camera quality is good under decent sunlight conditions."
_
"It is very versatile an he is able to make short movies with the camera."
_
"Video is surprisingly clear and the camera angle isn't terrible."

Charging

Charging:
"I got the the 4 in one ThinkMax charger for about $7 and it seems a bit flimsy like the reviews say, but it works."
_
"I also had issues with the battery cables as they too are kind of weak and after several times charging and flying, taking the batteries in and out the wire will separate from the connector."
_
"As far as a 4-way battery charger, I don't recommend the most popular seller (the ThinkMax brand)."
_
"It is not fun charging one battery at a time."
_
"I love it, I just wish the battery charge lasted a little longer."
_
"Make sure you read the safety instructions for handling LiPo batteries in the X4 manual which also explain how to properly charge them, store them, etc,, to get the best possible use out of them.2) The Hubsan X4 comes with a single USB charger (which you can plug into a USB outlet on your computer or your phone charger), and so can only charge one battery at a time."
_
"I saw a video that said its good to keep them at half charge in the fridge when you aren't using them."
_
"I put a little epoxy on the terminals where the wires insert into the connectors to prevent them from being pulled out or broken and the epoxy also makes it easier to grab the terminal to pull out of the charger and quad battery connectors, especially if you have big fingers like me."
_
"I strongly suggest purchasing extra guards and props as well as several batteries and the 4X multi charger."

Control

Control:
"There is a safety mode built in to the copter by default that will attempt to prevent you from flipping it over, at least from mishandling the controls."
_
"In the beginning, I would also try to turn it facing the side or toward me, but I found it impossible to control then....I would flip out and go off in the wrong direction or crash."
_
"I live in SE Asia, so ordering toy quality products is always dicey, since it is too expensive to return them if quality control fails."
_
"I won't say easy, because as I have said if you are absolute noob you have to learn the controls and develop your skills."
_
"Fun toy, but a little difficult to learn to control."
_
"On the stability side, there is a calibration mode on the controller as well as trim controls."
_
"I love that the controls can be trimmed to keep the unit in place during flight."
_
"This one is much much easier to control, so there has been less crashing and, not surprisingly, less frustration for all concerned."
_
"I learned that it's easier to bring the X4 up (using the left control stick) to clear it off the ground by a few feet."

Crash

Crash:
"got phantom for xmas but had defective battery so was forced to return it; since i knew nothing of drones i decided to start and learn with this little guy - mostly flying it around the house and crashing into everything - broke alot of propellers quickly."
_
"If you are smart and immediately cut the accelerator as any crash happens your worst case scenario will almost always be to break or lose a prop (as everyone says get extras for sure)."
_
"This one is much much easier to control, so there has been less crashing and, not surprisingly, less frustration for all concerned."
_
"In the beginning, I would also try to turn it facing the side or toward me, but I found it impossible to control then....I would flip out and go off in the wrong direction or crash."
_
"I believe the instructions say the file won't save if a crash is detected, but I've had it not save during a perfectly normal flight (yes, I know there's a tiny button)."
_
"The only problem we found was that if there was a rough landing (see:crash) then the video recording shut off and didn't save that segment."
_
"Handles really well inside and outside, I crashed it multiple times."
_
"I probably have 150 flights on it now with 10 bad crashes and it flies as good as the day I got it."
_
"Very durable - has been crashed numerous times but still flies like the first day! "
_
"Before your first flight and after any reasonable crash!"
_
"It's an extremely stable, agile little machine that can survive some pretty hard crashes, within reason, of course and fly as good as quads at twice the price."

Flying:
"..The only problem is he can't stop flying it all around the house..lol"
_
"Fun for flying, not the best choice for high quality videos or pictures."
_
"got phantom for xmas but had defective battery so was forced to return it; since i knew nothing of drones i decided to start and learn with this little guy - mostly flying it around the house and crashing into everything - broke alot of propellers quickly."
_
"This caused the drone to fly hard to the left."
_
"I have crashed it hundreds of times and flown it 400+ feet in the air (not recommended unless you wan to lose it) and it's still running strong."
_
"It is a challenge to learn to fly, which is common to most affordable quads, and you must develop the skill to get this quad to hover steadily or do anything but crash."
_
"Perfect for indoor flying, but also a blast outdoors (in little to no wind)."
_
"The video quality on this HD model is pretty impressive given the price of this complete ready to fly package."
_
"It flies super high and takes good video."
_
"Lots of fun, and flies well."
_
"But they are fun to fly! "

Guard

Guard:
"And use the rotor guard that is hidden underneath the packaging."
_
"Just watch the blades, recommend getting the blade guards."
_
"use the guard and you can beat this up pretty good."
_
"The prop guards are excellent."
_
"Nice little coptor for the price and reasonably easy to fly, Just make sure to put the guard on before you fly it or I can guarantee you'll be placing blades early on."
_
"This comes with extra blades and the rotor guard is included, and I highly recommend installing it while learning to fly."

_
"So much fun, steep learning curve."

Wind

Wind:
"Well, on the 2nd day, i flew it around my area in high attitude and unfortunately the wind brought my copter far away and i lost it."
_
"Not good with wind out side but it is a blast inside and out."
_
"My X4 has done one outdoor tour of duty, and let's just say it's not built for high winds and a crappy pilot."
_
"I would of flown it higher but I was a little worried about the wind."
_
"Practiced flying the Hubsan X4 (H107L) until I could fly proficiently indoors and then comfortably outdoors (low wind conditions) and could fly both away and towards me."
_
"The copter handles well, even in light wind, and the transmitter is very easy to use."
_
"One good gust of wind, and it will be long gone."
_
"Even in a 7 mile per hour wind I was able to get great shots at high altitude and have attached an example."
_
"It would not be for the feint of heart because the wind was whipping it around, but in expert mode it could actually rip across the park against the wind pretty well."
