I strongly suggest picking up extra larger batteries right away. I got the 380 mah batteries for the best balance between added flight time and extra weight to lug around. They give me about 8+ minutes of flight indoors racing around my apartment and hovering, landing, and taking off again. They give about 4-5 minutes flying outdoors at or near full throttle. The original batteries give much less flight time. Once upgrading motors I had to go with the 750 mah Nano Techs, the originals and the 380s just can't put out enough power fast enough.
I had a small issue right away with the stock quad - a motor died after about 5 flights. I picked up a new motor for about $5 and it took a minute to solder the connections onto the FC board, and it was back in the air.
This little quad is good enough as a nearly throwaway toy as-is, and it's also great as a base for a more serious micro quad build. There's so much aftermarket support for these things now you just can't go wrong with it.
Unlocking the full potential of the Hubsan X4 H107L requires a steep learning curve. It took two tries for the experienced users at Quad Corner, with the first Hubsan X4 passing from injuries at an age that was far too young. Be sure to read the manual closely as there are a ton of flight characteristic options – and customizing these settings correctly takes persistence and careful attention to detail. Once dialed in, the flying experience can be fun, with the X4 achieving very impressive top-speeds, but issues remain that hinder an overall smooth flying experience. Durability initially seemed impressive, but ended up leaving much to be desired due in large part to this product shipping standard without a blade guard. Our initial X4 burned through blades at a very quick rate and the frame was quickly damaged in a way that was not repairable. One category where the X4 stands a head above the rest is its features and customization options, which caters to those advanced users wanting to tweak their flight characteristics. Battery life with the stock battery was substandard, clocking in around the 4-5 minute mark (better flight times are achievable with bigger batteries). Beginner mode is available for the Hubsan X4, but based on the poor durability and battery life, Quad Corner only recommends this quad to very advanced users looking for a unique and powerful quad with a ton of customization options.
• Tons of flight customization options
• Very powerful quad with fast top speeds
• Nice controller and range
• Sleek look
• Poor durability – no blade guard with default product
• Short battery life with stock battery
• Erratic flight characteristics
• Steep learning curve
Price 8.5/10 ($28.99 at time of purchase)
At $28.99, this is a decently priced quad. In order to achieve a perfect 10, we’d recommend a price point around $24.
Battery Life 6/10
Flight time with the stock 240 mAh Lipo battery leaved much to be desired, clocking in at just over 4 minutes until completely running out of power. There is an excessive amount of warning light time with this quad, with the lights starting to blink and over 60 seconds of flight time still remained. The Hubsan X4 is powerful enough to fly with larger batteries. We saw flight times around 5-6 minutes with the 380 mAh battery and around 9 minutes with a 500 mAh battery. While still fun to fly with the 500 mAh battery, there was a noticeable change in flying characteristics and we recommend the 380 mAh as being the best suited battery size for this quad. When compared to other quads in this category, the Hubsan X4 is slightly below average with 380 mAh and well below average with the stock 240 mAh battery.
Initially the build quality of the Hubsan X4 impressed, being constructed from high quality materials. There are unique features on this quad that supposedly help with impact protection - the arms of the frames will pop out of a locking interface where it attaches to the motor. However, we found this to be mostly an annoyance, as these would frequently pop out and require some adjusting after even light impacts. If you don’t catch that the arms are dislodged (which is easy to miss), this can negatively impact flying and cause more damage. Several times we didn’t notice that the arms of the frame popped out, which makes a slightly different angle of the motors. We’d be flying at high speeds, attempt to make a turn, only to have quad react in a way that didn’t make sense – such as plummeting full speed into the side of a house or tree. These issues compounded and over a short period of time, our first Hubsan X4 was put to rest. The power of the Hubsan X4 contributes to it’s durability issues – most of your crashes will be at high speeds. We’d recommend to Hubsan that they package a blade guard with all of their quads, as it seems like an ineffective way to save a few pennies.
Flight Performance (7.5/10)
Flying the Hubsan X4 ranges from very fun to extremely frustrating. As per the durability section, if an arm from the frame has become dislodged from the motor housing, this can cause major inconsistency issues. However when the quad is in perfect working order, it can be quite fun. There are a ton of flight customization options that make the Hubsan X4 a tweakers paradise. Even at the lowest customized setting in advanced mode, the yaw (turning) is still extremely fast. We’d like to see an option to turn that down even further, which could help smooth out flight. The powerful motors and steep pitch of the Hubsan X4 allow for some remarkably fast top speeds, which also could be contributing to some of the less desirable flying characteristics. The forward/backward pitch and left/right roll transitions at high speeds are the cause of some instability. This is observed in most quads at high speeds to a lesser extent, but is especially apparent in the X4. It would be difficult to maneuver the X4 through an obstacle course because the pitch, yaw, and roll at times are all at odds with eachother, even after extensive tweaking. On some occasions this quad can turn on a dime, but on others it required a 20 ft cushion to reposition and start moving in the desired direction. These inconsistencies prevent the Hubsan X4 from achieving a top flight performance score. Also worth mentioning is that a mode is available that controls flips on the Hubsan X4 by sharply pressing the right-hand stick in the opposite direction from flight. We strongly recommend turning this option off, as it was also the cause for many crashes.
There’s a lot to cover in this section – in summary the Hubsan X4 offers a mostly fun and very fast flying experience with room for improvement.
The controller offers a ton of features and modes. This is the most advanced controller we’ve come across for a micro-sized quad. An LCD display helps with the many customization options. The controller itself feels fairly sturdy and durable, and the thumbsticks are well tuned and fun to play with. The control range is very impressive, the quad was still reacting perfectly at over 75m which is fantastic for a quad in this size and price range.
The Hubsan X4 is a very pretty quad. It has a small form-factor, but still looks powerful with its glossy texture, sleek frame and white stripes over a black body. The LED display is best-in-class being extremely easy to see at a distance and great for night flying.
This is a basic drone with an extremely amount of customization options. The amount of customization available is the reason for the perfect 10/10 score.
• Control Distance about 75m or greater
• No inverted flight
• Flip-mode available (but not recommended
• This version did not have a camera
• Has level 1 (beginner) and level 2 (advanced) customization options. Level 2 customization allows the user to tweak pitch, yaw, and roll rates.
• Bright LED lights show the orientation of the quad
• Headless mode no
• No one-key return
• Trim controls yes
• Low-battery warning with blinking lights - time about 60 seconds so be prepared to land this quad quickly
• Package contents – spare set of blades, screwdriver, 240 mAh battery with USB charger, screwdriver for replacing blade guards

Just a few things that I would recommend to new pilots and those looking to get into the hobby. First point, DO YOUR HOMEWORK, take into account what you want out of a quad and go from there. Me personally, I wanted to make sure this was something I was going to enjoy doing and am capable of doing. It doesn't make sense to spend hundreds of dollars on a quad to find out it's not a hobby you're going to enjoy and pursue and invest the time to get better at if you don't enjoy it. Start small and work your way up, you'll be glad you did.
Secondly, be smart about your purchase, yes this is something that is a heck of a lot of fun. Thus, spend the extra money from the get go and invest in the necessary upgrades and equipment to help fuel your passion for flying these little guys. When I bought this quad, I also purchased the crash pack in case something broke, didn't work etc. It gives you peace of mind knowing you're prepared for that oh s*** moment. Batteries, buy a pack of 5 batteries and the charger to juice them all up at the same time. You'll significantly increase the time you get to fly which means more practice and more fun. Buy the protective guard that keeps the propellers safe from pilot error, THIS IS A MUST! If not for that guard I would have destroyed several props by now and it isn't as flimsy as other people on here say it is, it does it's job. Lastly, shell out the couple bucks and buy the U wrench to remove the props. They do not come off that easily and you risk pulling out or damaging the motor using brute force, it's the right tool for the job, use it.
Upon ending this review I want to give all that read this some information that I had to dig up and a significantly helpful tip to the first time flyer. Calibrate your transmitter! Now when you do this you're calibrating for either mode 1 or mode 2 and the mode you calibrate it for is the mode that now becomes your default mode. The difference between the two is your throttle and rudder become switched with your elevator and aileron (the stick's swap controls) and your throttle and elevator trim buttons flip flop as well. Before every flight calibrate your accelerometer and be sure to do it on a FLAT and LEVEL surface. This will help reduce the likelihood of your copter wanting to drift in any one direction but I have found that trimming is needed for every flight, small adjustments are key. Finally, the most helpful tip I have for you first time flyers, just like me. When you get all the above steps finalized, push and hold the right stick until the letters "SE" for settings appears in the display. What this does is allows you to turn down the sensitivity of the controls to as low as 20 percent for normal and I believe 60 percent for expert. Click the left stick to cycle through each of the four controls, elevator, aileron, throttle and rudder and turn them down to 25 percent. I don't know if this is correct but when I turned my sensitivity down to 20 percent I wasn't able to calibrate the accelerometers. After I turned it up to 25 percent it worked just fine. I'm assuming the same would happen in expert if you turned it down to 60 percent. I cannot tell you how much easier it has made it for me to control this thing and after I get used to the controls and it's behavior I will turn it back up. It came factory set at 50, 50, 60 and 50 percent. Trust me when I tell you that it will make a huge difference.
All In all, the hubsan x4 h107l is an awesome little machine, for the price, the performance and the features it is a no brainer and very hard to beat. Pick one up, you'll be hooked, no buyers remorse here. Thanks for reading. I hope this helps a lot of you.

The battery connections are also a joke,as now after aprox 25 flights......and i use that term loosely the wires have broken off from the copter.....a shame really...could be so much fun,guess the newer models iron out some of these problems
After the first couple of flights I realised a prop guard would be worthwhile as with the guard installed small bumps into walls etc can happen without causing a crash.
