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.
In addition to the quad, I also ordered a guard cover with extra props, SD cards, and extra batteries - I highly recommend the SD cards and batteries. I didn't know that the quad ships with guard and extra props in the box (that's pretty cool!) so I would have waited to order more.
While they arrived on the Saturday after Christmas, we caught up on the fun very quickly. The boys were excited to just fly and the quads were ready out of the box to do just that. After a few hard landings, we installed the guard covers (very easy), and read a little more of the manual. I strongly recommend a reading of the manual.
I was a little more cautious in my first flight. I was happy to start with a take off and a landing a few times. I wanted to a get a feel for the controls so I flew low and slow. With patience, the X4 is very stable and easy to control. I recommend learning in a large room and learn to calibrate and use the trim controls.
The extra batteries really came in handy as we were all able to get good experience in flying these quads. With all the batteries waiting to charge, we reviewed the manual a little more to understand trimming, calibration, and how to take videos.
In a week's time, we were all flying the quads pretty well. Of course, we replaced a prop or two, and learned how to reset the arms after a hard landing (p19 in the manual). But that didn't distract us from having a lot of fun with this quad!
We were all impressed with the video. The color and detail are good for indoor flying. I found it fun to watch a video of zooming around the living room. More recently, I was able to take a video outdoors. I waited for a day with no wind. The video resolution is not the best for distance but familiar landmarks are recognizable. I estimated the X4 ascended to 70 feet - what a view! I had good control at that height. When the quad descends, it appears to wobble a bit but was not unstable. A little more throttle near the ground and it recovered very well.
I had earlier purchased an AR Drone but its size limits what I can do indoors. The X4 is a welcome and fun alternative!
20 Apr 2014 Update
I still have a lot of fun flying this tough, little quad! With the warmer weather, I'm getting some great videos from almost 200 ft high.
I had noticed that my quad would rotate left slightly after take off. I presumed it was my props getting a little bent and it did not affect the flight. When I removed all the props and guard to adjust an LED, I noticed fibers wrapped around each motor armature. These fibers would not be noticeable with the props on! I removed the fibers from all four armatures. Now, my quad no longer has that slight rotation. I recommend a periodic check for fibers to maintain the quad in good flying condition!
