Top Customer Reviews
It is terribly difficult to fly. Part of that is the mediocre altitude hold. If this was better then it might be worthwhile. As is, the drone just sort of drifts all over the place. Getting it to keep a consistent position or altitude is very difficult.
The controls have two modes and neither work particularly well. One is aimed at beginners and limits the maximum affect of the controls. The other gives you full control. In novice mode, the drone can't counteract movement fast enough to avoid trouble. Novice mode literally makes it harder to fly because of the slower reactions.
In expert mode you get full power on the controls but the drone is still not very responsive (and you have to set this every time you power up).
Headless mode is a hit or mess. It mostly works, but never as well as other drones I have flown. I don't really use this mode so I'm not too disappointed by the lackluster performance.
The camera is pretty poor in all but the best conditions. Shutter speed is slow enough that I get blurry pictures, made worse by the fact the drone can't hold position even with gyroscope calibration and trimming the transmitter.
I have never had a serious crash, but it appears to be fairly well built. The frame protects electronics and motors fairly well. The LEDs are bright and easy to see, giving feedback of battery status and video recording.
The batteries are a proprietary form factor so don't expect to share them with other drones. This isn't too uncommon though, so I won't count it against Hubsan. Still, I wish these were more standardized. Also, the video eats up a lot of battery on the transmitter and there is no way to disable this. My Spektrum transmitter for one of my other drones lasts 4 or 5 times longer.
I had high hopes for this drone. I had read some positive reviews and waa hoping to get a reasonable sub-250 gram camera drone. This one doesn't deliver.
2nd one - exhibits same issue - altitude hold feature is faulty and you have to constantly fight the copter from wanting to fly up and away. The problems with this toy are well documented throughout the web. Caveat Emptor
Don't buy this particular product/model. I wanted to love it, but after 2 fly-aways never having gone above 10ft - lost it after the second in a light breeze. Batteries full - less than 2 minute flight. Throttle didn't respond = money wasted.
Long story short: If I had to do it all over again, I'd get one with GPS and RTH.
I've been an RC enthusiast (mostly cars and boats) for at least 30 years, but never flew anything outside of a Brookstone. Prior to my order, I did my homework - studied-up on everything I could get on the H107D+ in order to make a somewhat intelligent purchase.
First impression: I couldn't stop grinning because it's so tiny and looks wicked cool. Charged up the battery and installed batteries in the TX - turned it on - binded (bound?) - and a live image showed up on the display. Took it outside and immediately started to fly, albeit really low and slow. I shot some video off the the unit and it was very sharp (unlike many of the reviews) great image stabilization. At this point I'm not ready for FPV flying yet - plus the image on the transmitter is useless in the bright florida sun...
Charged all the batteries - went to a huge open park across from where I live. Found a level post that I could fly this thing off. (Note: It is so little that blades of grass keep the props from spinning. You need a semi-smooth, level surface to take off and land.)
Started flying and capturing video. I kept it within 20 ft off the ground and kept familiarizing myself with it. There was a light breeze and very sunny. The response in Normal mode felt rubbery and unresponsive. I did take it a little higher and it started drifting. No amount of trimming would make a difference. It started taking altitude and flying away! Running after it, I kept trying to shut the motors down just like the manual said. The quad flew about 300 yards, crossing over an avenue, almost swiping a power line pole until I lost sight of it. TOTAL FLIGHT TIME: 3 Minutes!
After lots of triangulation and sweating in Florida's 92 degree weather, I found the little bugger in a bush, in the general vicinity that I hoped it was in. No damage to the H107D+ but the video was not saved. Seems to happen quite a bit - I'll end up with 8 video files, but only 2 of them contain actual video. Flight time is about 4-6 minutes max.
I got home - recharged batteries - and took it outside again to see what's up with the drifting issue. I put it into Expert mode and it became a different creature - responsive and tight - A much more rewarding flight and in my opinion, much easier to fly. Calibrated the gyro and controller. Again, the drifting is a bit of an issue and very wind-dependant. Props are fine and nothing is binding, causing the issue.
Day 1 - I've crashed it several times now and I'm still on the original props. The little guy is a lot of fun and this is said to you from my limited experience.
I bought extra batteries and props for the copter. I also bought the antenna modification kit for the controller and I'll be performing the Li-po battery mod to it also. Hopefully, I'll see a difference.

In Conclusion: Not bad - could be better. You need to ask yourself what is your objective? This drone will help you learn FPV flying and will take consumer-grade video and photos. If you are serious about either, fpv racing or real video, this is not the one. Even though I'm enjoying this little quad, I would not buy another one - I'd spend a little more and get a brushless motor quadcopter with FPV, GPS and RTH functions. Too much money to just throw away on something that has non-pilot-error-related issues.
