What makes the Hubsan X4 107L great:
1. It is durable. I am a newbie, I like to fly fast, and I only have vision in one eye. Needless to say, I have crashed hard MANY times (primarily trees, the entry lights to my house and my mailbox). So far, I broke the blade guard (which I fixed with hot glue) and one propellor blade. Plus, hitting a hard object fast just right may result in a "stiff" motor which can usually be fixed by clamping down hard on the top and bottom of the motor with a pair of pliers. Oh, I also lost a couple propellors when they came off on impact (they just push on).
2. Replacement parts are readily available on Amazon at inexpensive prices. No need to wait 5-6 weeks for parts from China like you do with most quads.
3. It is small enough to fly inside and flies great outside if the winds are less than 10 mph. It has to power to easily fight the wind, but it does get blown around a bit in higher winds.
4. The transmitter is big enough to use easily and offers beginner and expert modes, plus you can adjust just how aggressive each mode is. You can also change how the controls work, re-center the gyros and turn off the LED lights if you want.
5. It has enough power to use higher-capacity batteries. I use 380 mah batteries most of the time, but I also use 500 and 600 mah batteries for really long flights. Overall, the 380's provide the best combination of long flight time and maneuverability. Any battery bigger than 380 mah, you must use a rubber band to secure it under the quad as it will not fit in the battery bay.
6. Being a "toy" class quad, in addition to being cheap, it is a whole lot SAFER than something bigger and more powerful. I still don't fly it around or over people, but I have crashed it into myself many times with no injury whatsoever.
Ok, those are the reasons this is my number one quad in my "fleet". Now for the Cons:
1. The LED's are pretty worthless as they are pointing up. This makes maintaining orientation (which direction is the front facing) more difficult, along with its smaller size and my poor vision. Painting the front of the prop guard white really helps, and I might also paint the front of the quad white. I can usually rely on the color of the front props for orientation except when it gets too far away. If I am flying inside or a big field outside, this isn't as much a problem.
2. Replacing a motor or an LED requires soldering. It would have been nice if plug-in connectors were used, but this would have increased both size and weight, a trade-off I personally would NOT be willing to make.
Hubsan also makes a model with a camera (107C) and also a model with FPV (107D). I haven't read too much positive about their inexpensive FPV (107D model), mainly because of short battery life of the display on the transmitter and also a slight lag in the display. The 107C and 107D models use different motors and prop guard than the 107L which is the one I have. Just be aware of this when you order spare parts.
Also, Hubsan showed updated ("Plus") models at CES early last January, 2015. They looked really great, but no details on pricing or availability. The updated version of the one I have is supposed to have "updated flight software" that will allow for altitude hold (barometric pressure sensor??) and also better LED's that will be more like headlights and tail lights on a car. Should you wait? I wouldn't, for the less than $45 price of these, you get your money back MANY times. Just remember to pick up a "crash pack" (which includes a spare body, motors and propellors) or at least spare propellors. It comes with four spare propellors, which may sound ok, but that is only two each clockwise and counterclockwise props. You cannot interchange a CCW and CW prop.
There are many video reviews on Youtube and I recommend you watch them. Most of the other quads that are available are good also. What really sets the Hubsan apart from the rest is its great parts availability at cheap prices on Amazon Prime.
Hover mode (in ground effect) is the best way to teach yourself how to fly it this X4. To explain this training method, Ground Effects Hover mode: Get it flying just above a smooth floor or carpet, between 1 and 4 inches up. You will find it will tend to stay at this level without touching the throttle (up-down) control. The reason is that the propellers moving the air are compressing the air against a hard surface (the floor) and are more efficient in that area. To leave the ground effect area, you will need to add more power by at least 2-4%, the ground effect area is from zero inches to about 4 inches, but for training you want to be above the ground at least 1.5 inches so the small up-down oscillations do not cause you to touch the surface, over carpet you will need slightly more than over a smooth concrete or hardwood floor. The beauty of this training method is that you can now concentrate on just one control stick, it will take some time to get it trimmed to do this but it is the best way to teach your wife or young kids (whenever you feel like you are getting out of control, just chop power to zero and the quad drops harmlessly the 2- 4 inches to the ground, zero damage. My goal is to teach my almost 4 years old twin boys how to fly, it will likely take me serveral months or more of careful explaining and controlling the throttle stick myself until they get the tilt right, left, forward, back understood. Of course the YAW control needs to be trimmed also (the right left on the throttle stick) but it is very stable in this copter. I ordered two more of these Hubsan X4 quads today, totally hooked on this chopper. Remember to order some extra batteries and let the batteries cool for at least 30 minutes before recharging them. Also, super important to stop flying slightly sooner, do not run the batteries to the last second (I stop flying within five seconds after the four LED lights begin blinking, the batteries will last much longer. The motors will last longer if you give them at least ten minutes rest time to cool for every 7 minutes of flying time. One more thing, I created a paper window target to test my flying skills, if the props hit the paper almost zero damage and great sound effects. I used a big single sheet of newspaper with a 12 inch square hole and re-enforced it with scotch tape. Then added a pencil to weight the bottom and thumbtacks to stick one edge to the ceiling. Soft targets like this will improve your flying skills with little damage likely. By the way, I am 61 years old and have owned 3 other normal RC helicopters in the past, back to being a kid again, super fun, don't wait, for $45 dollars, lots of entertainment.
Given it's durability, stability, good controller and availability of replacement parts, The X4 gets my vote for best beginner quad rotor.
I've used this quad copter for myself to learn the basic controls of quads, and found it is one of the better ones to have a friend try out for the first time as well. The little vehicle is response and fast, which provides nice satisfaction to being able to feel in control. Lights on the rotor arms also make it easier to orient which way is forward.
I trialed this mostly inside, in a garage, to avoid landing it in a tree, and even flew it in the living room without risking harming too much. Outdoors it moves a bit in higher winds but still is pilot able.
