Could this be the dream Quadcopter  I’m looking for. I got the news that Hubsan are releasing this model in February 2014. Details are a bit sketchy at the moment but will add more as I receive them.

Banggood are now taking pre-orders for the Hubsan H109S X4 FPV Pro at approximately £250.00. There was talk on one of the RC forums that the skids may be replaced. Hubsan have promised an update as to the exact version they will be producing after the Chinese New Year. I would prefer the model if it had a built in camera on a decent gimbal rather than rely on the GoPro. I can’t understand why this cannot be achieved and for an extra £150 they could capture the midmarket aerial photography space. Add their Hubsan FPV Glasses and you’ve got a great out of the box aerial photography platform for under £500.

Vivienne from Hubsan has mailed me and confirmed that this model will be available in March at a price of approximately $350. There has been talk on one of the RC forums that Hubsan may have partnered with Idea-Fly another RC control company from Shenzhen who produce the Apollo Quadcopter to produce the 109s. This collaboration makes complete sense to me as Idea-fly are already producing a multi-rotor that has the features Hubsan require, Hubsan have already established themselves as leaders in the micro Quadcopter market with their quality affordable H107 range and have built a great customer base who are eager for them to produce a larger model. I fly a Hubsan H107c and a Walkera Ladybird V2 FPV and have asked a number of times what should I buy next and every time it has been suggested I go for a DJI Phantom. The Hubsan 109s must be able to compete with the new Phantom FC40 as I regard this as the best entry level aerial photography platform available. As previously stated I’m not sure if I was Hubsan that I would go down the GoPro route as this will almost double the price of the rig. I would rather see them do what DJI Innovations have done with the FC40 and have an out of the box RTF (ready to fly) kit.

I’m not sure whether Hubsan will be releasing this model or  will it be in the shape of the 109S above, rather than get too futuristic I would prefer it if they kept to the basic X4 shape

Hubsan have said they will NOT now be producing this model it will be the H109S PRO

We are going to look at some of the latest Quadcopters to hit the market. The Syma X5C will soon be available from Banggood as will the other additions to the Syma Quadcopter range.

As soon as we get any information on these models we will update this Quadcopter blog. We are excited by any new Quadcopter models coming to the market. Seems like Syma are trying to challenge Walkera and Hubsan in the micro Quadcopter market space. They will encounter an uphill struggle against the proven Walkera Ladybird range and the ever popular Hubsan X4. I really don’t like the cheap look of the Syma transmitters they look similar to the transmitter that comes with the Hubsan Nano and they will have to offer a complete range of spares for all models.

I would love to see Hubsan bring out a medium size version of the X4 with GPS and altitude hold, Fail-safe return and a decent megapixel camera that could shoot stills and record video by pressing buttons on the transmitter, 20 to 25 minutes flying time and maybe some smart sensors. The body design is proven and by adding the desired functionality I’m sure this would be great seller. At the moment you can go from the Ladybird V2 FPV or the Hubsan H107D FPV to the DJI Phantom there is not much in between. Playing catch up To DJI Innovations in the Aerial Photography market space is a hard one, a great under $500 platform is what is needed and I sure it would be very well supported.

PS. When I wrote this I had not heard about the Hubsan X4 109S Pro

  2. Align Quadcopter, I had one & returned it. Impossible to keep trimmed, No instructions even at the web-site that was on the paper that came with it. No dual rates… clearly made by WL Toys and not nearly as good as any WL Branded Toys. Nine Eagles Galaxy again is a “miss”,..over promised, under delivered. Hubsan IS the standard! I am an experienced R/C flyer that has flown most of these quads. And for the others that I haven’t in this article; I ha many friends who have and have ultimately said to “pass” on everything except the Hubsan. Don’t take My word for it…go to either 1 of these 2 web-sites on FB where there is a cult folllowing for Hubsan with many experienced Hubsan pilots. or

  3. Thanks Edward I’m a great Hubsan fan myself but still really enjoy flying my Ladybirds. If you are any of your friends would like to post some reviews of any models either good or bad then please reach out we would love to hear from you. Paul
