I've been interested in quadcopters for some time, but the cost coupled with the very real possibility of destroying the thing on my first attempt kept me back. When I learned there were finally ready to fly quads under $100, I did my research and found the Hubsan X4 mini quadcopter to be the most popular. I was about to order the standard Hubsan X4 when I saw the improved H107L, and decided to make the jump and go for the newest version which is what is here.
Since I've never flown another quad (not yet, at least), I'm in no position to compare it to others, but I can confidently say the Hubsan X4 H107L quadcopter is an absolute blast. Once you get a handle on the controls, the Hubsan H107L is a fast and maneuverable craft that impresses everyone that sees it. You might be under the impression that a quadcopter this cheap would have the build and performance of a toy, but as soon as you feel the solid construction of the Hubsan X4 H107L and see what it can do in the air, you'll realize there is a lot more going on here.
That said, flying this quadcopter (especially on the Expert control setting) does take some practice; and yes, you WILL be crashing this thing at first (assuming you aren't already experienced with multi-rotor craft, at least). Luckily, the Hubsan H107L Quadcopter is a tough little bird, and even after running this thing into just about any object imaginable (ground, walls, cars, ceiling...) at high speed, she is still flying fine. You'll want to order some additional propellers (http://www.readyquadcopters.com/hubsan-x4-rotor-blades-black-white/) as those do tend to chip and bend on impact, though even then, the props should survive multiple crashes before they get to the point where you need to change them out.
As for myself, the Hubsan X4 H107L Quadcopter has definitely got me hooked on the quadcopter scene, and I'm already looking to get something bigger (and more $$$) to play around with. But even when I get another quadcopter, I'm pretty sure I'll still be coming back to this one once and awhile to have some fun. Joe on 30th Jun 2014
