A few years ago, Hubsan announced the first micro quadcopter with FPV mode at 5.8GHz analog frequency. The first-person flight without delay impressed the novice consumer so much that the developer updates the lineup of this niche with enviable regularity. We are glad to present you another modified micro-simulator for the initial development of piloting skills and adaptation to flight in first-person mode — Hubsan X4 H107D+.

Hubsan X4 H107D+ has a completely redesigned curved design that looks very beautiful. The body plastic is thin and flexible, but strong enough to withstand serious crashes.

The Hubsan X4 H107D+ quadcopter is equipped with a single-cell lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 520mAh. The battery itself is hidden in a kind of box. The removal and installation of the battery is carried out like in expensive UAVs, which is convenient in itself. At the same time, this fact nullifies any “without collective farm” upgrade of the stock battery to a more productive one. According to the specification, it provides a flight duration of no more than 7 minutes. In practice, with a mixed style of piloting, this time was no more than 5 minutes. The battery charging time does not exceed the manufacturer’s stated — 60 minutes.
We attribute the fact that the drone itself acts as a minus by default as a charger for the X4 H107D + battery. Therefore, while the battery is charging, you will not be able to fly on additionally purchased batteries! In order to charge and fly, the developer separately offers to purchase a “Battery Pack” kit.
The drone activation button is located at the bottom of it. Turning on and off is implemented classically with a long press. Near the center, there is an antenna for an analog video transmitter operating at a frequency of 5.8 GHz.
According to the specification, the Hubsan X4 H107D+ quadcopter has a built-in HD camera on board that takes photos/videos at a resolution of 1280 × 720p. In practice, the quality of the video deserves respect and generally meets the stated requirements. True, in our opinion, a little lack of sharpness. The photo quality leaves much to be desired. Photo / video recording is carried out on an SD memory card, which is pre-installed in a separate slot on the quadrocopter. The memory card is not included and must be purchased separately.
It is worth noting that it would be unnecessary to find fault with the quality of shooting in the case of the Hubsan X4 H107D + and any other analogue, since the main purpose of the camera for these models is far from shooting, but high-quality FPV flight.
The Hubsan X4 H107D+ comes with a classic control panel with a built-in 4.3″ monitor based on the H901 hardware. Food is carried out from 4 finger batteries. Provides FPV distance up to 100 meters in an interference-free zone. In a metropolis, this distance will be reduced by at least two.
The Hubsan X4 H107D+ quadcopter in the test showed distinctive dynamics for the occupied UAV niche, due to the low weight of the drone. Wind resistant. The operation of the gyroscope significantly simplifies the control of the quad. The altitude hold function by means of a barometer works without comment, beginners will appreciate it. The flight time with the camera turned on with a mixed style of piloting was 4.5–5 minutes.
In the test, it was revealed that when the connection is lost, the quadcopter does not fall, but continues to fly!
On well-known Internet trading platforms, the Hubsan X4 H107D + quadrocopter is sold at a price of $147.

If you are looking for your first quadcopter, then the Hubsan X4 H107D+ is the one to at least pay attention to. With quality product execution, analog FPV (no lag), distinctive dynamism and altitude hold function, the quad easily competes with other well-known brands in its niche. Among the disadvantages worth mentioning is the inability to separately charge the battery of the quadric without additional purchase of the “Battery Pack” kit, as well as the fact that the quadric does not fall when the connection is lost, but continues to fly. If you don’t experiment and fly within the radio exchange like we do, then there will be no problems with communication. Otherwise, the presented model will allow a beginner to master both primary piloting skills and adapt to a full-fledged first-person flight, which everyone comes to sooner or later.
