Unboxing & Assembly





The box is really quite professional, considering the quadcopter is by Hubsan i would expect nothing else.  Inside the quadcopter is very nicely laid out with accessories either side of the quad.  The accessories include:-

  • 1 x set of 4 propeller guards
  • 1 x set of 4 spare propellers
  • Battery charging cable
  • 1 x battery
  • 1 x quadcopter
No transmitter comes with this quadcopter as it is controlled via your smartphone and the X-Hubsan App - App video available here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GimcgTOYhoY&t=2s



Flight



After flying quite a few Hubsan quadcopters over the years i had real high hopes for this quad, and to begin with it looked quite good.  After about 3 minuters i started to have warning lights on the smartphone transmitter app and noticed the battery was at 40% and another 2 minutes and the battery depleted much quicker to 15%.  Another minute or so after the quadcopter dropped from the sky and shut off as the battery was fully depleted.

I have now bought another few batteries so i can fully test this again.  I was quite happy with the way the drone flew, it felt good, and stable, but i want to fly it more and see it fully in action. 

Overall - I will be reviewing this again, and will give a full verdict then.
