Review Of Hubsan X4 H107D Quadcopter
This particular model called the Hubsan X4 H107D Quadcopter is one of the models in a series of RC Quadcopters called the H107 Series. We could not figure out where this model is actually coming from. From the Hubsan website we found that there is only the Hubsan X4 H107L model and the Hubsan X4 H107C model. We have already written an extensive review on the Hubsan X4 H107L model which we had called just the Hubsan X4 H107 at the time. We were not aware that the there was a newer, more advanced model that came out recently.

It seems that the company Hubsan made one of the most popular models with their older mini-quadcopter model. People were crazy about it but still had a few things they wished. The big thing that was asked for and delivered has been the new integrated camera into the model. Just like the previous models, the X4 H107D is a type of micro-quadcopter. The device is very small.
We found from the product page on the H107D that the camera’s spec are listed at 0.3 Megapixel and 640*480. This is not HD but when we watched the video below from YouTube showing how the video would look from your transmitter, we were very surprised at how clear it seemed. Obviously the thing about getting a high resolution, clear shot from any camera, video or not, is to make sure you are holding the camera relatively steady and not shaking it around. When you watch the video as the X4 H107D starts to rise up in the air, notice how smooth the lift-off is. There is almost no turbulence and shaking.
As for the response time of the screen from the FPV (First Person View) the video changes almost instantly along with every single movement that the quadcopter makes.
We have always said that the 6 axis adjustable gyro sensitivity system is amazing and here is a clear evidence. Something new that has been added is the rubber feet padding at the bottom of the UAV. When you land the model, the rubber padding really absorbs most of the shock to damper out vibrations. This means that the quadcopter will last longer with much less chances of breaking something if you maybe make a slight mistake in landing the device too hard. You also have the protection ring which is the outer foam mode to put around the blades. This will help prevent the blades from hitting the walls if you flying it indoors and get it too close to the walls.
Another thing that we really like about this model is that it is claimed by the sellers that it takes just 30 minutes to charge the model, to the maximum for the internal Li-Po battery. We looked at the battery specs and it says that it would be at 3.7 Volts and 380 miliAmpHour. That is extremely good for a mini-quadcopter model. As for the flight time the maximum for one battery is supposed to be 7 minutes. That is sort of average but we would have liked if the model could have done better, maybe a total of 10 minutes. However, that issue is only a small concern. We just really like the fact that it takes only 30 minutes to fully charge the model to maximum battery power.
As for us, we like the new model and want to see more models made by the company. Of course, our opinions are just our own opinions. We are just a group of people who love these awesome new gadgets which look like alien spaceships. We understand that everyone wishes to find the best models to get the most satisfaction and fun from them.
You should definitely read what other people are saying about the particular model, NOT just what we say. What matters even more is what other people think of the model of quadcopter. The collective opinions of everyone is what will help you make the best choices when you do make any final decisions.
So what do other people think of the X4 H107D model?
