There are many Micro RC Quadcopters you can now buy. The JJRC Micro Quadcopters and the Hubsan X4 range are the very best you can purchase today (15-03-215). The Drone flyers team fly these models on a daily basis, spare parts are readily available and they are all great examples of technology packed into tiny flying machines.

Update  15-03-2015 Since this review was first published the 108C has been withdrawn by Banggood but a number of new and exciting Micro Quadcopters have been introduced. The very Best Micro Quadcopter with a 2 Mega Pixel Camera that can be bought at under $40 is the outstanding JJRC H6C RC Quadcopter. The latest version has an excellent remote control transmitter with a Headless Mode and return to home function. Y0u will not find a better Micro Quadcopter than this H6C for the money CLICK THIS LINK

JJRC 1000A RC Quadcopter

Another Great Micro RC Quadcopter this one comes without a without a camera is the JJRC 1000A. This model comes without a camera but offers a fantastic flying experience for under $30. The JJRC represents superb value for money is extremely agile and flies well indoors and outside in calm conditions . It is most probably the most underrated Micro Quadcopter on the market today. It will perform really tight flips and flies like a little demon. CLICK THIS LINK

“After having never flown a RC Quadcopter before and wanting to upgrade to a bigger one I thought I would buy this one on recommendations to practice on before making the jump to a bigger multi-rotor. The Hubsan 107l Micro Drone is absolutely amazing. It flys so good and is the best fun I have had in a long time. The ability to start in its default mode is good to start on then once you get more confident the Expert mode is totally crazy fun with its speed and super quick turns and flips it can do. I would highly recommend this little copter to anyone in the market to practice on before they go bigger. 5 star rating for me.”

Hubsan X4 H107C Quadcopter wuth 2MP Camera

This Micro Quadcopter has set the standard over the last two years and the Hubsan X4 Micro Quadcopter is also available with a camera. I personally have two X4’s with the 2MP Camera and these take pride of place in my collection CLICK THIS LINK The Hubsan X4’s are extremely well made, robust and fantastic flying fun then never fail to delight and we can’t recommend them highly enough. There is a version with a .3 MP camera CLICK THIS LINK

This page will be dedicated to micro and mini sized Quadcopters or Micro Drones. By now anyone interested in Quadcopters would have heard of the excellent range of mini and Micro Quadcopters from Hubsan. The smallest Quadcopter in the World is the Hubsan H111 and their next size up is the ever popular Hubsan X4 range consisting of the H107L, the H107c with a choice of .3 and 2MP cameras and the  H107D a FPV Quadcopter. Then there is the Ladybird range from Walkera V1, V2 and an FPV (first person view) model

You cannot go wrong with any of the models listed above but as there is a plethora of new makes and models coming to the market we thought we would have a look at some of the new Micro Drone entrants to see if we find anything that compares in value, price and flight ability. Highly recommended Hubsan X4 Owners Page We will make a list of Brands and compare the models and specification. Syma I’m already liking this one it’s due out soon

Syma X2 6-Axis Gyro 2.4G 4CH RC Quadcopter With Guard Circle

Micro Quadcopter from Syma
The Syma X2 Micro Quadcopter

I’ve not actually flown any UAV’s from the Syma range but have received some very favourable reports from people in the industry who I respect, on their Flying abilities. The description from Banggood below boast that the transmitter speed on this model is a 100 times faster than any other! Description: Brand Name: Symatoy Item Name: 6-Axis Gyro Quadcopter Item NO.: X2 Dimension:9.5cm x 9.5cm x 3.5 cm Control Mode:Remote Control Frequency:2.4G Control Distance: About 50m Battery for Quadcopter: 3.7V 150mAh Li-poly Charging Mode: USB charging Charging Time:About 30 mins Flying Time :More than 5 mins Battery for Transmitter: 4″AA” batteries( not include) Function:up/down,left/right sideward fight, forward/ backward, turn left/right,with GYRO/Flash light, 360 degree 3D and special functions(continuous rolling) Features: With guard circle design,can protect the Quadcopter from collision, especially for newcomers. 3D 360 degree rotating functions,can be continuous rolling. The 6-axis system allows the Quad to be hand launched. 6-Axis gyro quad-rotorcraft flight, strong stability,can easily implement various flight movements, stronger wind resistance, easier to control. 2.4 technology adopted for anti-interference,you can fly more Quadcopters at the same time and not interfere with each other. The Transmitter speed is 100 times faster than other radio controller. Super mini size, the smallest volume and the lightest weight,beyond imagination stability and operability.

Wltoys V929 2.4GHz 4 Channel 4 Axis RC Quadcopter

Features

  • High stability during hover and flight
  • Agile in flight and very responsive to pilot’s command
  • The flight time can be as long as 10 minutes
  • This product can be controlled with the V911 transmitter, but be informed that it has some differences as compared to the original WLtoys V929 Beetle TX. If you want to perform 3D stunt movements, it is recommended to use the original WLtoys Beetle TX
  • The Beetle can fly outdoor in wind weather (outdoor wind grade 3-4)
  • Comes with high quality, ultra-thin and ultra-lightweight plastic canopy but it is strong enough to resist the impact of crashing
  • Highly responsive propellers, able to give the Beetle the “punch” when you need it
  • It can fly up, down, forward, backward, bank left, bank right, and yaw left and right
  • While it is very stable in hovering, it can also perform stunning 3D moves
  • It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor flying (the wind grade should be no more than 4)

This is a model that has been recommended to me by a number a people. I have been reluctant to buy any WL Toys as I know they continue to copy other manufacturers but with this Micro Drone they seem to have done a great job.

Wltoys V252 Upgrade Version 4 Channel 2.4GHz Mini Remote Control 4 Axial Quadcopter

Features (These are not my words, seems like they need to take on someone who has a better command of English. I’ve added a few comments.)

  • This Quadcopter is very easy to control (With plenty of practice)
  • It makes a fantastic gift for anyone (Maybe my Gran would like one?)
  • Enhance the operating ability of your kid (Whatever that means)
  • It will be a good companion of your kid (He won’t however take it to bed with him and give it a cuddle)
  • It will give your kid or friend unforgettable memory on special days (Especially if it flies away!)
  • It is safe and not harmful to kid (Unless you hit them in the face with it!)
  • It will bring your kid lots of surprise and fun in life, and will keep him or her entertained all the time (That’s if they have an unlimited supply of batteries and parts)
  • As an upgrade version, it will bring unexpected surprise for your kid (If he knows how to operate it)

This is another from WL Toys, the styling of the WL 929 obviously mimics the style of the Ladybird, this one is a copy albeit it transparent  of the HubsanH107, If you are thinking of buying one of these Micro Drones then be sure to get this model as by all accounts the previous version did not fly that well.

If you have a favourite Mini or Micro Quadcopter we would love to hear from you. We will continue to update this page and hope to turn it into a leading resource for Quadcopter buyers. All our opinions are our own and some may disagree with them, whatever you think we always love to hear from you. You can always find some great unbiased reviews on this site and here is one that compares the HubsanH107L with the WLV252 http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2114008 Micro Quadcopters with cameras Hubsan X4 H107C 2MP: This a a favourite of mine, it’s worth spending the extra to upgrade from the 0.3Mp version you get a far better video. You can buy this  model for under £50 and there is nothing that comes close in terms of value, robustness and flying experience. This is a pure piece of technology excellence that years ago would have been unthinkable. It’s got Leds that help with orientation,  special ‘breakable arm’ sections, propeller protectors, a clever prop removal tool and a stylish body shell. If you switch it to acrobatic mode it will flip over which is fun and pretty impressive to watch. What’s not to like? I’m new to soldering and yet to get the hang of it so I prefer the plug and play system used by Walkera on the Ladybird Quadcopters. The Worlds smallest Quadcopter the Hubsan Q4 111 Estes Pro Nano Quadcopter and the WLToys clones

Claimed to be the World’s smallest Quadropcopter this is a review from Simon’s shed.
I’ve read reports from Guys who have this model on the HubsanX4 owners page and they all rave about it. Bangggood have posted a BNF version of this model that’s coming soon and I’ve also seen a number of alternative colours beside the standard Estes PRP black or Hubsan H111 Q4 white. The beauty of the  Bind and Fly edition is that if you have a Hubsan X4 model you can use your existing remote control transmitter to fly this tiny Quadcopter. This little Quad is priced at under £20 for the BNF Version. As for the clones , there are no review available as yet.

From Flyin’ Ryan. It’s says it has 6axis technology but it’s 3Axis gyro and 3axis accelerometer.

MouldKing: Firstly someone needs to wise these Guys up about Branding. Their Remote Control Quadcopters fly as shabby as their name. I seen some horrific videos of their Quads flying and wonder why they don’t realise how much better they could be. But hey all is not bad with Mould King, one thing they seem to have got right is the way their Quadcopters are packaged. The multi-rotor is situated on the front of the remote control transmitter and parts are stored the back

Over the next few days we will see what information we can find out about these Micro Drones companies and if their products are any good. Seems like many of them are jumping on the Quadcopter bandwagon, some will emerge a serious players as the others fade into oblivion. There are some great forums like RCgroups where you can find information on any models of worth, so if you are thinking of buying a Mini or Micro Quadcopter do your research. If after you have had a good look around and are still unsure of what to buy then drop us an email at droneflyers@gmail.com and we will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

World Exclusive! We have just been informed by friends in the industry about a great new Micro Quadcopter Kit to hit the market soon. Going under the Diablo Quadcopter branding and backed by a CAD 3d Printing concern the kit will allow users to effortlessly build their Mini Quadcopters and customise them using 3d printed parts.
Always well worth looking at: Quadcopters reviews from Flyin’Ryan
