Hubsan x4 h107c Review
In this section, we’ll talk about some of the important aspects of the drone that includes build quality, controller, camera quality, and flight performance. It is recommended to go through all the points properly so that you have a proper idea about the product you are buying.
As it is a beginner drone. Don’t expect too much from it. You can record video at 720*480 resolution at 25fps. The quality is pretty basic, but you can learn about how to frame the shot and composition. This quadcopter will teach you a lot of things about controlling drone so that when you buy an advanced drone, you know how to use it properly. All the media will be recorded to microSD.
When the quadcopter start recording, you’ll see the LED lights blinking. Make sure to check the memory card space before you fly your drone; it should have enough space to record during the flying time.
You get a controller with the drone kit which has decent quality build. It looks very cool and fits perfectly in your hand. You feel like as if you are holding the gamepad. It also has a tiny screen on it that gives you an ample amount of flight data. It also has a backlit feature that allows you to have clarity even in low light conditions. What i really about the small screen that it also shows you the percentage movement of the throttle, so that you actually know how much more, you can push.
Even though it comes under $50 range, still it won’t let you down when it comes to its smooth flight performance. It is very easy to control, even if you are a novice, you can easily master it after a couple of flights. The drone is very responsive, so don’t push it too hard when you are flying it for the first time. Also, it’s better to take it off at open ground till you master it. You get propeller guards with the quadcopter; you can use them to ensure better safety.
Flight time and Battery
It comes with 3.7V 380mAh Li-Po Battery that gives you around 7-8 minutes of flight time, which is pretty average. The battery gets fully charged in just half an hour. Better to have some spare batteries, so that you can have flights back to back without any glitch. They are available online at cheaper rates. Also keep the batteries at the right place, (No Humidity).
Solid Build Quality
When it comes to its build quality and design, the quadcopter doesn’t disappoint you. It is very compact, and you can easily carry it from one place to another. It is only inching tall and 3 inches wide. Without the battery, it only weighs 40grams, which gives you an idea about how lightweight drone is. You can fly the drone indoor without a problem, but when you are flying it outdoor, make sure there is no breeze, small wind and drone goes out of control.
The quadcopter frame is made up of plastic. You’ll definitely crash it but what i really appreciate that the parts are easily replaceable and you can find them cheap online. It has small rubber landing gear which doesn’t give you very good ground clearance. So, when you are landing, be very careful; otherwise, it might topple.

Hubsan X4 H107C vs Hubsan X4 H107L
both the drones have the beginner and expert mode, which is really helpful if you are a beginner. When you are using the drone in beginner mode, the drone will be less responsive, and the chances of crashing it comes down. The main difference between both the quadcopter is off camera as letter C stands for “Camera” over here. In H107L, you don’t get any camera, so you can use it for fun for playing around. Though when it comes to durability, H107L clearly has the edge over H107C. The drone can survive minor crashes.
If you are buying your first drone and you don’t know much about flying. I would say, “Go for it.” It is tough to find a better deal at this price range. It also has a basic camera and some advanced modes to try. It is very small and weighs less than 40grams. If you have a 10years old kid and thinking of giving him a gift, this could be a perfect surprise for him. We have covered all the important aspects of the article.
