HUBSAN Nano Q4 Mini Quadcopter RC Drone : Great fun and intro to quadcopters

Ok, first off this is a hubsan product by license agreement only; it’s actually an estes proto x nano drone which has been around since 2014. Basically nearly all of the current nano drones available are more or less direct descendants of the proto x, thanks to open source software, with minor variations here & there. That said, there is a lot to like in this little bugger. It responds well enough to signals from the controller, and can be trimmed up nicely via controller buttons. Interestingly enough, if you also have a hubsan x4 mini drone, it’s controller will also work for the q4 h111 nano. That’s a plus; because the larger controller is easier to use well, and allows for even better trim control. Without the extra bulk and weight of a camera, this little sprite zips around very quickly, stops on the proverbial dime, and gives up to three extra minutes flying time. My average battery charge is lasting 12 minutes. The lipo battery used in these nano drones absolutely needs a cool down period of 15 to 20 minutes before you recharge them. Failure to observe this cool down period will drastically shorten the life of the batterytrue to the cheerson reputation the 10a is a tough & rugged micro aircraft.

I bought this as a christmas present for my nephew after seeing it on thegadgetflow. Com and wasn’t expecting much since it’s so small. He’s been having so much fun with it. I can’t lie, i’ve messed with it a few times and it is insanely fun. I can’t believe how quick and high this little thing can fly. We are both still getting used to the controls. It crashes and has to be recalibrated a lot lol.

Love this mini drone got it for christmas from my wife. Plugged it in charged quickly. Don’t be fooled from its small size this drone is extremely agile very fast and has three different performance mode. We purchase two of them and me and my son can fly both of them together because the remotes tether to whatever drone is turned on next to it doesn’t interfere with the other. These little things take a beating the only thing that happens so far his props come off and motor mount break. For an inexpensive price we also purchase a small crash parts kit and these drugs have continued to offer hours of entertainment inside and out. Would suggest these to anyone who would like to learn how to fly a drone that doesn’t want to spend big money.

My favourite drone, so small and simple.

Great little quadcopter for flying **indoors**its super maneuverable, and very fun to fly. Don’t fly it outdoors anywhere near wind, it willliterally get blown away. For indoor flight, get the prop guard, you willcrash into things. I scratched one of my lcd monitors. Gets about 5-7 min of battery life, but also rechargessuper fast, in about ~15 min?.

I can’t fly the thing to save my life but it sure is fun.

It is important to discover that this solution comes with no the propeller guards. With no them the propellers get broken also conveniently and the drone gets to be really challenging to command. In the end the propellers crack and just one solitary substitute set is not more than enough. Look for an alternative that arrives with the guards. Or else obtain the guards independently.

But one has some stability challenges (the newer a person) and the other flies perfectly. I would give this five stars if the two had been entirely stable. I agree with some of the other assessments that remarked on stability. Mine will rotate a little bit on its very own and sometimes oscillate on one aspect. It should be firmware due to the fact the other operates so nicely. I will say this is the most pleasurable for the funds i have but gotten and i have fairly a handful of rc helicopters and drones. So it continue to gets 4 stars for that purpose.

  • Unbelievably tiny, very capable, but does have a problem with rotors flying off

  • Does some one sell them in bulk? I could get behind that

  • Coolest toy ever!

HUBSAN Nano Q4 Mini Quadcopter RC Drone(Green)

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.

  • 360° flip&roll, 2.4Ghz RC Series
  • 5 optional colors include yellow, white, red, green, black
  • with 4 led lights, fly both inside and outside and in the darkness

Great beginner drone perfect for those learning to fly you need to hot glue the mother mounts so they don’t shake and get the x4 controller so you can trim the yaw axis but its a great nano quad fro starter get extra batteries also.

So far i’ve gone from only hovering for a few seconds to almost a couple minutes without crashing. I just would recommend buying extra blades. So far best deal i found was getting 10 sets (20 pairs) for $9 off of ebay. Yet now i need to look for a frame replacement since i cracked one of the motor holders. Only reason i gave it 4 stars was because the instructions are a bit off and it’s a little tricky to calibrate the controller and the q4, as the sticks have to be at just the right spot.

Nicely made and fun to fly in the house or office.

The battery time is seriously terrible. I really don’t know it is frequent or not, i just have 1 minutes fly time just before it can not rise up with thoroughly charged drone. Stability is good, effortless to control. Durability is truthful, the motor is previously shaking following number of crash.

As soon as stability suffers a new set of props help. Battery everyday living is about four to five minutes.

This is a single of my favourite nanos. Not for inexperienced persons to study on. I did have to return the to start with one particular slight defect. But the return was trouble free and the replacement is excellent.

It’s very controllable and sensitive if you use a x4 ,controller vs the one it comes with. In expert mode this thing seems to be faster then the x4 .Very powerful little machine. The props do come off if you wreck, i’ve already lost a set. Don’t fly in any wind at all outside it’ll take off. Calm day outside this thing screams . Range with the x4 controller on the h111 is good too. I had it at least 50 yards over the neighbors house and no problems.

A gift for my father for christmas, he has really liked it although we quickly have lost rotors on this little drone, it has some serious zip to it so flying it indoors can be an absolute pain. Which is understandable considering its speed and power. Definitely one of the most responsive drones i have ever used, and packs an impressive punch for the price.

This is just one of the coolest drones i have noticed. It is quite effortless to fly and definitely enjoyment. It has an appealing style and design to protect the propellers from problems/breakage, in the fact that they are style to pop off if there is considerably resistance. This is wonderful to stop problems but they are quite small and can be tough to come across a single they pop off the drone. So, it is clever to spend in a number of more packs of wings. They are quite reasonably priced. The unit does appear with 1 excess established. But keep in intellect, just about every wing is developed for its unique placement and not interchangeable. So, if you appears to be the proper front wing, a still left entrance wind alternative will not operate. The only true complaint i have is battery lifetime.

Always love to find someone who appreciates less as more. This little drone is 1st class – a little touchy to fly, but anyone can learn it if persistent, only one downside – when you crash, get ready to search for the props. They fly off, and are so small they will get lost very easy.

A fun little gadget for a 13 y/o. It took some getting used to flying it, but once he got the hang of it, he couldn’t wait for the next charge to be complete. It doesn’t take that long to charge at all, and flies for several minutes. I’d recommend having some extra aaa batteries on hand.The props held up for most of the day, but he had to change one that broke eventually.

My 11 & 13 year olds really got a kick out of this small drone. We fly it a lot in the house and haven’t broke anything yet. It came with a broken guard we should have complained about immediately but then we’ve broken nothing playing with it. We do fly it outside at times. My first impression was not good but have become impressed with it stability and durability. For the price this drone is great.

Love this nano drone, but flight times seem to be only a minute or so before i need to charge the battery.

It was really hard to study to fly at to start with but immediately after a few of hrs you get the hang of it. It comes with 4 added propellers, so if you lose one (and you will since they detach effortlessly), try to remember to abide by the instructions telling you what shade goes wherever. Every propeller has markings also. Examining the guide and perhaps watching some tutorials on the internet truly aids.

This one came, same packaging and delivery was on time, i have another one that is so fun i fly it inside all the time, i wanted another one to fly while charging. Did all the same things calibrated it and link. But the controller is much tighter, it does not give you a chance to trim it. They are fast and fun to fly more than any one i own. I dropped 2 stars because unlike my other one, this one the blades came off over and over, until i lost 2 of them. Looks like i will have to get a package of blades to keep it in the air. But i do like the hubsan products and would recommend this little quad, the price is great and its just way too much fun.

My son and i each and every have one and have entertaining flying these about the household and outdoors when it isn’t really windy.

Good little quad, i had to buy better blades from my local shop. The ones that came with it flew off too easy causing the occasional crash. Also the controller was a little bit smaller than i was thinking but it works well.

This factor can take a huge(twenty ft) drop. Sport method is crazy i also just figured out that it can do flips. Its insane also follow my rc web page on insta @rc.

Very responsive little quad and very fast. It’s a bit more advanced but so fun to fly.

The granbsons and their dads love it. Was a perfect gift for them to do together.

Bought this to practice flying quadcopters and if you master this you can master anything (or maybe not) but its fast. I would loose track of it then wreck it. This too is going to happen to you and thats fine. I started to get the hang of it and have gotten pretty good. Can easily do funnels and flips and fly around obstacles is a ridicouls amount of fun. Ended up buying a second one to bring to my office were we buzz cubicles and bother the bosses. My coworkers quickly picked up flying it and have gotten just as proficient a couple have bought their own as well. I did end up buying prop guards for them just to help mitigate breaking (as many) blades and hurting people. Those too will happen to you and that is fine.

It is really truly fun to participate in with. Would advocate purchasing if you just want a little bit of pleasurable devoid of breaking anything in the household. I do recommend nevertheless, getting the guards for it to because it is complicated to fly at very first.

Astonishingly capable for this kind of a small thing. Photos don’t do it justice, this mosquito fits in my palm with space to spare. Really nimble, virtually as well nimble on the leading sensitivity setting (i held it on the center placing even after some apply). It is gentle sufficient not to get any problems if it must slide, though i suspect it will nevertheless be broken if you crash it into factors. It will do flips with some exercise, while only on the best sensitivity setting, and only with enough altitude (about 4 ft). Prices in just a several minutes from a usb port, yet lasts among 5-ten minutes. The rotors will come off at the slightest provocation, and even though they can be quickly pushed again on, they are very small and tricky to discover, as they can be hurled some length from the place of effect. Thankfully, hubsan supplies a comprehensive set of replacements, so you can hold heading even if you lose all four originals. It has leds to convey to you which way is ahead, which is also assisted by using white rotors in the entrance and black in the back again.

Not particularly uncomplicated to fly. No car stabilization and tends to twist and drift regardless of trim.

    The battery time is really bad. I don’t know it’s common or not, i just have 1 minutes fly time before it can not rise up with fully charged drone. Stability is good, easy to control. Durability is fair, the motor is already shaking after few crash.

    I really don’t know how this has any more than 1 or 2 stars as teviews. As another reviewer said, it’s never the same quadcopter on every startup. It requires constant trim inputs. If you are looking for an easy first time indoor quadcopter, i recommend a syma x20p.

    But one has some stability issues (the newer one) and the other flies perfectly. I would give this 5 stars if both were completely stable. I agree with some of the other reviews that remarked on stability. Mine will rotate a bit on its own and sometimes oscillate on one side. It must be firmware since the other works so well. I will say this is the most fun for the money i have yet gotten and i have quite a few rc helicopters and drones. So it still gets 4 stars for that reason.

    Just got this newly badged version of my very first micro drone. Haven’t flown it yet, but i’m assuming it was like the original,cwhch is nothing short of amazing. I have so many it’s hard to get to them all. I will update this review when i getthis one in the air.

    3 modes make it real responsive. I can only fly 100% outside or a large open room bc of soooo much power.The charging is awesome too. Charges via the little tail on the back. 25 min charge 5 min flight time. Smaller than your phone about the size of your keys. Great buy*buy extra props* youll need um lol.

    2 stars because is relatively cheap. If it was 30 dollars i would give it zero stars. It does not fly correctly from each time you launch. I have to adjust the trim constantly. I would call this a novelty more than i quad. I have a couple other nanos that handle 100 percent better. The drogan hacker comes to mine first.

    1. These little quads are great. Just make sure if you are learning buy extra props or a crash kit because you will need them, aside from that they work perfect.

    It was hard to learn to fly at first but after a couple of hours you get the hang of it. It comes with 4 extra propellers, so if you lose one (and you will because they detach easily), remember to follow the instructions telling you what color goes where. Each propeller has markings too.
