Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"The only down side that the wires are not easy to be inserted into battery compartment so the center of gravity changing rapidly also charger build is cheap (that's why it took only 4 stars)Update: Unfortunately one of my motors is totally dead in the second day when I was flying with the drone, I don't know why cause it fails suddenly while it was in air."
_
"I solved that problem by simply connecting the battery by moving the cords around and behind the back arms as shown in the picture!"
_
"The one negative would be the cords have to be managed for each battery change...if they stick out at all, it throws the center of gravity off and makes control difficult."
_
"The weakest point on the X4 is inside the body shell where the battery leads are soldered onto the circuit board."
_
"Negative lead came of from changing the batteries."
_
"My son has 5 batteries charged at once and can use the drone for almost 30min by quicky replacing the dead battery."
_
"I recommend buying the crash kit unless you are a seasoned pilot and you should also buy the best multiple battery charger you can find along with extra batteries."
_
"and don't forget to buy extra batteries to enjoy the most."
_
"2) Able to cheaply purchase 5 more of said batteries and a 4 battery charger!"
_
"I also bought three extra batteries to enjoy more flight time."

Blade

Blade:
"Occasionally the blades will pop off on a particularly nasty crash but they always snap back without issue."
_
"I highly recommend spending the extra money to get the extra parts kit which includes the blade protectors those things have been invaluable at saving damage to the hubsan."
_
"My original set of blades are now significantly damaged."
_
"Only complaint is it has a high pitch annoying noise not from the spinning blades but mb from batteries and or motors..?"
_
"The blades props are subject to damage so I suggest spare packages of those, and extra batteries (rechargeable on your computer)."
_
"1 cheap prop blade broke, otherwise it's fine! "
_
"I highly recommend using the blade protector when young kids are flying this quad."
_
"Blades are very easy to replace."
_
"Got for my 5 yr. old son because reviews stated it was easier to control than single blade copters."
_
"I gave it to my wife to fly the second flight, with the blade protector on, and she did very well considering."
_
"Perfect little quads for learning to fly and having lots of fun with, didn't get the blade protector with this one but didn't mind too much this is my second one and I fly it outdoors most of the time and in the wind."

Charging

Charging:
"product is good, but not great they need to fix the charging cord doesnt really fit where they say to put it plus is kind of stubborn unplugging it sometimes."
_
"Charger seems pretty flimsy, but so far performs perfectly (takes a~30 min to charge).If you've got $4X."
_
"I recommend buying the crash kit unless you are a seasoned pilot and you should also buy the best multiple battery charger you can find along with extra batteries."
_
"2) Able to cheaply purchase 5 more of said batteries and a 4 battery charger!"
_
"They take 30min or more to charge so its nice to charge five a once."
_
"I consider myself an advanced beginner and was able to fly this within minutes after charging the battery."

Control

Control:
"Don't expect to be able to control this thing with any type of precision."
_
"cute toy, not very easy to control"
_
"I had a proto X before this one and it was very hard to control."
_
"Throttle control is the biggest complaint I get, after some one I've shown this too, and then purchased one for themselves."
_
"I have built several quads - a 450, a 250 FPV racer, and I've used OpenPilot CC3D, Flip 1,5, KK2, - so I know how well built quads and flight control boards work."
_
"This is actually a fun little quad - don't expect it to fly like a bigger quad - these smaller ones seem a little more squirrelly - you're going to have to use the sub trim controls pretty much every flight, as it doesn't seem to auto level and hover the same every flight - but it is a good quad to learn to fly on, the replacement parts are cheap - expect to break a lot of props, and buy extras."
_
"Really easy to control and inexpensive."
_
"I have to much fun playing around with it, its controls are relatively easy when you get use to it, I drop it 3 times on solid ground without propeller Guard and I didn't have any problems it keeps flying again, I bought 2 of these for me and my son but after flying with it I figured out that it will dangerous and hard on him (he is a 6 years old), I touched the Hubsan accidentally when it was falling with my finger and I've been injured, so please keep it away from young children and install the propeller Guard."
_
"A lot of fun and fairly easy to control! "

Crash

Crash:
"Occasionally the blades will pop off on a particularly nasty crash but they always snap back without issue."
_
"I have had to replace one of the motors as I probably broke it after a bad crash."
_
"That being said this is my third day of ownership, i have had to replace 3 motors (1 per day , literally) I don't crash that often and when i do it's usually minor, So it's kinda annoying that i have had to replace three of the motors already, But hey at least i'm getting the soldering experience."
_
"I crashed mine real hard and it damaged the motor."
_
"I still crash it every so often since I like to challenge myself and its still holding up well."
_
"I am missing a crash guard AND THE BATTERY."
_
"I'd also recommend buying the crash kit replacement parts, and extra batteries - I get maybe 5-6 minutes on the batteries."
_
"I recommend buying the crash kit unless you are a seasoned pilot and you should also buy the best multiple battery charger you can find along with extra batteries."
_
"3) Propeller guard, cuz I know darn well I'll be crashing it."
_
"Soon after, I bought a crash pack (highly recommended) to replace parts (mainly propellers) which became damaged."
_
"It has held up well even in a several crashes."

Flying

Flying:
"The only down side that the wires are not easy to be inserted into battery compartment so the center of gravity changing rapidly also charger build is cheap (that's why it took only 4 stars)Update: Unfortunately one of my motors is totally dead in the second day when I was flying with the drone, I don't know why cause it fails suddenly while it was in air."
_
"One problem is that it will fly much farther than you can see (because it's so small) which makes it difficult to see which direction you're headed."
_
"First of all it is incredibly hard to program and fly."
_
"Took it outside and could not fly well on a windy day."
_
"You might think that a solid and hefting feeling copter will not fly as well and be susceptible to cracks."
_
"This is a bit more challenging to learn to fly that perhaps the other slightly larger quads, but once you get the hang of it, it is much more maneuverable and powerful."
_
"It flies pretty nimbly inside - my dog goes nuts trying to chase it - for the price - under $50, it's a good way to start in the hobby."
_
"This is actually a fun little quad - don't expect it to fly like a bigger quad - these smaller ones seem a little more squirrelly - you're going to have to use the sub trim controls pretty much every flight, as it doesn't seem to auto level and hover the same every flight - but it is a good quad to learn to fly on, the replacement parts are cheap - expect to break a lot of props, and buy extras."
_
"Excellent purchase if you are just getting into RC flying."
_
"Fun to fly."

Guard

Guard:
"I am missing a crash guard AND THE BATTERY."
_
"The bonus prop guard that I received was the wrong size, designed to fit the larger 8mm motor size of the 107C and 107D models, vendor should check his stock to be sure that they fit the 7mm diameter motors of the 107L model."
_
"I have to much fun playing around with it, its controls are relatively easy when you get use to it, I drop it 3 times on solid ground without propeller Guard and I didn't have any problems it keeps flying again, I bought 2 of these for me and my son but after flying with it I figured out that it will dangerous and hard on him (he is a 6 years old), I touched the Hubsan accidentally when it was falling with my finger and I've been injured, so please keep it away from young children and install the propeller Guard."
_
"3) Propeller guard, cuz I know darn well I'll be crashing it."
_
"Get prop guard and extra batteries and a decent charger."
_
"The guard to put around the props is great and protects well when you practice at first."
_
"The prop guard fit well and allows me to lightly bump the X4 into various objects, which is sort of fun for some things - like using it to scoot something by pushing it (think empty can or plastic bottle on a smooth floor), or just walking up to it and pushing it."

_
"I crashed mine real hard and it damaged the motor."
_
"Battery life is great considering it's drive 4 motors."
_
"Good little machine however seems motors don't last long, it's makes more sense to buy a new one and keep old one for parts."
_
"All the original motors have held up well to nearly daily use over the past couple of months."
_
"This far exceeded my expectations since motors burned out so quickly on the smaller proto-x."
_
"I expect to be able to fix it or replace the motor, but it is a bit annoying--I mean, I'd only crashed it about ten times!"

Wind

Wind:
"Flying outside in a park or wide open area with no wind is the best."
_
"Also each arm has a neat little part on the bottom if you happen to catch a good gust of wind wrong and it comes down hard it is almost like a little shock that you just push back into place so the chances of breaking it beyond a 3-5$ repair is very seldom unless your trying to crash it."
_
"The wind will toss it around but it's still a lot of fun."
_
"Good quality, good fun, once you get the hang of it , nice look, can be a little shaky in the wind, although, I found that I was able to fly in a very light wind"
_
"It is very fun to fly outdoors but the wind has to be very calm or this light weight quad gets thrown downwind in a hurry."
_
"It has a lot of power and can be flown in light winds with no problem."
