Hubsan H107D Review
In this section, we’ll talk about the different important aspects of the drone in this section that includes build quality, camera specs, battery backup, performance, and much more. So, let’s dive into each of them one by one.
Build Quality & Design
It is a compact drone with 4.7 x 4.6 x 1.25-inch dimension and wight around 1.5 ounces. It comes with 380mAh battery, which is protected by the solid case. It also has a tiny camera as well. It is ready to fly a drone, you take it out of the box, and you are good to go. It also has blue and red color LED lights which help you keep track of the quadcopter orientation.
When the controller is making a connection with the drone, the lights will blink once the connection is made, it will become solid. When the battery is low, at that time also, you’ll see the lights blinking.
What is a bit weird about the drone, that there is no power ON & OFF switch? The drone will start once you slide the battery and make the power connection. It has 2MP low-resolution camera which fits at the front part of the body. It is ducked inside which keeps it safe from any kind of crashes.
The quadcopter is quick. Once you get control of the speed, it is really fun to fly. It can reach the speed up to 10mph, which is decent enough considering the beginner drone. It is very responsive to the controller, make sure that you don’t push the throttle too hard. The quadcopter is suitable for both beginners and experts as you can change the speed and fly it at your disposal. You can also do flips and rolls with it. Keep in mind that the drone is at a suitable height when you are doing it.
You should not expect much from the camera. As it has a very low-resolution camera and video quality is not that good enough. It records in 720P, and you might not be very happy with the footage. When you are flying the quad in FPV mode, the range is around 30-40 feet which are not very good. If you fly the drone out the range, the transmission will stop, and you might also lose the control over it. You can also play back video on the controller, which makes the previewing bit easier. The footage that you get is not worth sharing on Insta or other Social Media. But, you’ll learn a lot about the shot and frame composition with this drone.
As it has around 7-8mins of battery life, i would highly recommend buying some spare batteries as it will give consecutive flight without a glitch. It is a very small drone, and the battery that you get is of 380mAh. When the battery is low, you’ll see the light blinking on the drone. There are a couple of things that you have to keep in mind regarding batter safety. Keep the battery away from humidity or hot places. If you are using some different charger, make sure it has the same voltage and ampere reading.
You’ll be getting a USB charging cable with the battery that will fully charge the battery in just half an hour.
As it is a very quick drone, you’ll see the crashes once in a while. But, what is really good that it is a low maintenance drone and with some spare parts, you can repair it by yourself as well. All the replacement parts like props, motors, and others are available at the price range of $5-10. The replacement battery costs around $20 that are also worth investment.
It is recommended to fly the drone at slow speed for a couple of flights, once you get the control over it and you get used to of its responsiveness, then you can use it in expert mode. It will decrease the chances of crashes significantly.
