Which Hubsan Quadcopter is best for you?

Hubsan are a quadcopter company based in Shenzhen in China. They have a reputation for producing high quality quads at reasonable prices.

In general, Hubsan quadcopters are complete packages so that you have everything that you need to fly in the box including FPV gear on the appropriate models and even HD cameras on their more high end drones. Their quadcopters are retail or toy grade quads opposed to hobby grade quads like most racing drones are. The big difference there is that they are not really designed to be tampered with. Hobby grade quads are often built rom scratch and every pard can be replaced or upgraded and repaired indefinitely. Toy grade quads on the other hand may let you do some minor fixes or mods but in general are not supposed to be open up.

That has some advantages as everything should just work out of the box and you don’t need to tune anything but on the other hand, if something breaks, you will probably have to buy a whole new quad.

Husband have a pretty large range and cover every price point of quad from the most basic nano drones to top end camera drones costing over $1000.

I’m going to give an introduction to each model here and links for you to dig in further if you want to find out more.

Hubsan X4 H107 Range

At the bottom of the range (or entry level anyway) they have the X4 H107 range. These are cheap quadcopters with very few features that can get you into the hobby easily and at low risk.

Don’t necessarily let the low price fool you though as these quads come very highly recommended and a lot of people recommend you get a H107 or an H107C as a cheap way to practice flying LOS.

Hubsan X4 H107 X4

  • Size- 2.55*2.55in
  • Flight Time- 7 minutes
  • Battery- 3.7V 240mAh Li-Po
  • Charging Time- 30 minutes
  • Distance- 100 meters

This is the cheapest quad that Hubsan make. It has no frills at all. It flys in a self leveling mode so it has an accelerometer but that is about it. On the other hand it is very cheap and it does what its supposed to do very well. This was my first micro quad and I still get it out every now and again.

Hubsan H107P Plus

  • Size- 4.17*4.17inHubsan H107P
  • Flight Time- 11 minutes
  • Battery- 3.7V 520mAh Li-Po
  • Charging Time- 60 minutes Distance- 100 meters
  • Altitude/Headless Mode

This is the upgrade version of theH107. Its the same price but has altitude hold and headless mode which means that you don’t have to worry about which way the quad is facing to fly it.
Get this over the basic model.

Hubsan H107C (or H107C X4 CAM)

  • Size- 2.75*2.75inHubsan H107C
  • Flight Time- 7 minutes
  • Battery- 3.7V 380mAh Li-Po
  • Charging Time- 30 minutes Distance- 100 meters
  • Camera- 480P/720P
  • Photo/Video

The Hubsan h107c is exactly the same as the H107 but it has a camera built in that you can record video to an on board micro SD card.
The camera shoots at 720p, but it does add a bit of weight and to be honest, its not the best quality really. If you really want to just record your flights and are on a budget then you could get this but if you don’t think you will use the camera much then just get eh H107 to play with until you upgrade.

Hubsan H107C+ (or H107C+ X4 CAM)

  • Size- 3.2*3.2inHubsan H107C Plus
  • Flight Time- 7 minutes
  • Battery- 3.7V 520mAh Li-Po
  • Charging Time- 30 minutes
  • Distance- 100 meters
  • Real Time FPV
  • Camera Resolution- 1920*1080P Video

This is the upgraded version of the H107C and it comes with all of the same features , just a bit better. Upgraded battery and camera etc and it looks cooler as well.
If you really just want the features of this quad then I would recommend it over the H107C. It is a bit more expensive though.

Hubsan H107D X4 FPVHUBSAN H107D

  • Size- 3.2*3.2in
  • Flight Time- 7 minutes
  • Battery- 3.7V 380mAh Li-Po
  • Charging Time- 30 minutes
  • Distance- 100 meters
  • Real Time FPV
  • Camera Resolution- 720*480P Video

This is where we start to get into the fun stuff. The H107D is a FPV quad. It costs around $99. Considering you get a screen built into the transmitter, this is a great package. Read my review of it though and you will see it has a few issues. My recommendation is to either pay a little bit more for the H107D+ or opt for a higher range model if you can afford it.

Hubsan H107D+ X4 FPV PLUSHUBSAN H107D Plus

  • Size- 4.17*4.17in
  • Flight Time- 7 minutes
  • Battery- 3.7V 520mAh Li-Po
  • Charging Time- 60 minutes Distance- 100 meters
  • Real Time FPV
  • Photo/Video
  • Camera Resolution- 1920*1080P
  • Altitude/Headless Mode

The H107D+ is, unsurprisingly the upgraded model of the H107D. It has basically the same feature set, but is upgraded in almost every way. Its a bit more expensive but I would highly recommend getting this one over the previous model. The original H107D was great on paper but had a few issues that spoilt it. I think Hubsan looked at everything that was wrong with the old model and fixed those issues here.

The H107D Plus is a great quad. Its a retail or toy grade one so don’t expect to be flying like pro racers but in terms of a cheap and accessible intro to FPV flying, this one is hard to beat.

The Hubsan H111 Range

Hubsan H111 Nano

  • Size- 1.8*1.8inHubsan H111 Nano
  • Flight Time- 5 minutes
  • Weight- 11.5g
  • Battery- 3.7V 100mAh Li-Po
  • Charging Time- 30 minutes Distance- 50 meters

The H111 Nano is a very common design (maybe Hubsan are making these for a lot of other companies to rebadge) Its a pretty standard nano quad, Tiny and a lot of fun for indoor use. It is very much a toy though so have fun.
