Camera is Fixed position, but use the YAW function, and you get a 360 degree view. Get the Windows Live Movie Maker (Free from Microsoft), and you can do image captures from that. They come out perfect, for stills.
The video attached is converted to "Email" size, since the "High Quality" size was 280MB, and too big to post here. I am an amateur and have only flown this thing for about a total of 1 hour. (Flight time). HAVING A BLAST, Now that the wind has died down enough to get some altitude. Video is at over 100 feet! At one point I could barley see it so decided to bring it back down.
The camera has no sound, but that's ok. All you would hear is the buzzing of the motors. The Quad sounds like a swarm of angry bees!
Get this QUAD, and you wont regret it! I've already got the X4 107"D" with heads up display on order! I'M HOOKED!
Flyable strait out of the box this is an awesome Quad Copter for all age hobbyists or fist time RC buyers! Great deal and great value - with full 4D trim settings and adjustable sensitivity this truly is a Copter that anyone can fly. Expert mode for more experienced flyers allows for two click 'flips' and keen maneuverability, while the provided protection ring allows even first time flyers confidence in flight. Built for durability this Copter can handle crash after crash and keep right on flying (provided you have the battery power, and replacement propellers). The built in, on-board camera allows you to take amazing video and is a very useful tool, as well as an awesome toy! However, flying in Expert Mode greatly decreases the quality of video recording.
Flight Time: Roughly 6-7 minutes (depending on how often you crash (or land) and relaunch the copter).
Charge Time: Roughly 1.5-2 hours.
-If you buy the Hubsan H107C model, it comes with a protection ring taped onto the underside of the inner packaging! You do not need to order a separate one unless you somehow damage this one!
-If you are a new RC hobbyist or new to flying Quad-Copters or other RC Copters USE THE PROTECTION RING FIRST OFF - If you damage the props too much, you will not be able to use the protection ring as the props will just spin against the side of the ring. It is recommended that you always fly the Hubsan WITH the protection ring, only remove the ring if the RC model is not performing as desired.
-In order to record video you will need to purchase a micro SD card (not provided) available on Amazon.com.
-In order to copy videos from Copter's micro SD card you will need a Micro SD card Reader available on Amazon.
This Copter is an amazing value at the price that Amazon.com sells it for - I would recommend it to both experienced RC enthusiasts as well as newcomers to the RC hobby. Although a great RC product for older kids, I would recommend buying something a bit cheaper (and possibly without a camera) for your teenager, however they would have no problem flying this awesome product! (Ages 14+)
Props: I would also suggest getting some replacement props on the way as they are THE MOST replaced part as well as THE EASIEST to damage... I went through the factory props as well as the set of replacement props within a couple of weeks, however props are very cheap, I just ordered 5 sets for less than $7 from Amazon.com.
Batteries: If you are going to buy this product it is suggested that you pick up a couple of extra 3.7v 380 mAh batteries (with compatible connector) to extend flight time, also available from Amazon.com. I just ordered a package of 5 batteries for less than $20 from Amazon.com.
Battery Charger: Neewer and ThinkMax sell an adapter for the battery charger capable of charging 4 - 3.7v 380mAh batteries at a time, it is suggested that you buy one of these if you are going to buy 3 or more extra batteries as it takes roughly 1.5-2 hours to charge one battery with the provided charger.
Charge the battery and put batteries in the remote. Insert a micro SD card. The remote must be turned on first, with the throttle in the off position, or the copter will not sync to the controller. Then plug in the battery to power up the copter. Push the one button on the copter to turn on the camera. The instructions will show which lights indicate which functions as well as show alternate set-ups for many features. It pays to read the manual, especially if you're new to flying model helicopters.
The remote comes set up with the controls mimicking a real helicopter control layout. The throttle, which acts as collective pitch for all four rotors, is set up as the up-down on the left stick. This raises and lowers the altitude of the copter. The left-right on the left stick controls the yaw, or in other words, allows the copter to spin around in place.
The right stick is the cyclic pitch controller. Moving the right stick varies the rotor speeds one at a time according to the stick direction. To go forward, push the stick forward and to go backward, pull the stick back. Left and right movement of the stick of course makes the copter fly left and right. You can change which stick performs which function, but then you go against normal flight control convention.
The controls are quite sensitive, but they are very linear and proportional. This means it's easy to dial in the exact amount of throttle or directional control quite precisely. But you must be very gentle on the controls, because it's very easy to over react and send the copter off in a mad dash across the room.
The package includes a rotor guard which should be installed. Believe me, you'll be glad you did. But just in case, there are four extra props in the box. Props come in left hand rotation and right hand rotation versions, so be sure you put the correct prop on the correct motor. The copter won't take off if you make a mistake. It is advisable to practice flying indoors in as large and clear a room as is available. Begin by lifting off a foot or two and trying to keep the copter in one place. Use the trim controls to get it to hover steady. Once you do this, the copter will be much easier to fly.
Previous helicopter flight instruction allows me to understand the flight controls quite easily, but what I find most difficult is flying when the copter is oriented in reverse, meaning when the front of the copter faces toward me. Then the controls appear to operate backwards. Of course, in a real helicopter, you as the pilot always face in the forward direction of the copter and your perspective is always the same. Not so with this or any other remote control copter. It tales lots of flight practice to overcome this.
The camera quality is merely adequate for fun videos. It is SD quality, and quite grainy indoors. It's about as good as an old VHS camcorder. My only complaint with this copter is that they didn't use a better camera. You can not tilt the camera down, but in forward flight, the front of the copter points slightly down as a natural process of forward flight. The included battery runs about eight to ten minutes before needing a charge.
In short, this quad copter is fairly well made for something this inexpensive. With the rotor guard installed, it can withstand mild bumps into objects with no damage to the rotors. Can't say the same for small chochkies on the shelve you try to land on. To include a camera at this price point is amazing. Take the time to practice learning to fly this, and you will be rewarded with smooth and precise flights time after time.
