This is one of the bigger models of rc quadcopters that we have seen, and the size of it makes it look more intimidating that the other mini-quadcopter models that we have seen before. In terms of length is it about 10 inches wide and 10 inches long. For flight, it has the 6-axis gyro stabilization system for very stable flights. There is two modes which include the slower average speed mode and the more advanced mode where the RC Quadcopter can do flips and rolls. There is a telemetry function you can add which lets you see how much battery voltage there is.
As for the power supply used, it is a 7.4 Volt 1000 miliAmpHour LiPo battery. This is double the voltage and around triple the stored current energy in other LiPO battery types used to power small quadcopters. It takes around
So what do other people who have already bought the Hoten X think of the particular model of quadcopter?
There has not been any reviews for the Hoten X on its amazon product page. Currently there is actually three product pages for it, with varying prices. The other are at - Product Page #2 (Price: $533) - Product Page #3 ($230). The listed price for this model is around $300 which means that it would be among the most expensive rc quadcopter models there is.
Would I recommend this model for the prospective buyer?
Based on all other factors besides price, I would choose it. it is big, versatile, has a large battery electrical energy storage at 7.4 Volts and 1000 mAH. However, the problem is that this model is overpriced. It doesn’t seem to have the HD Camera embedded with the model like other types of quadcopters. This is why I would rather recommend the QR W100 or the QR W100s designed by Walkera.
