Updated Hubsan X4 H107D Plus FPV Micro Drone with Altitude hold
We are not 100% convinced on this latest Micro FPV X4 Quadcopter release from Hubsan. The general consensus of opinion in the Quadcopter community is that the altitude hold doesn’t add value to the equation. You are likely to capture better video than from the original model but if you want a sporty fast flyer with FPV then buy the original model it is still available and lot cheaper than this newer version. The original Hubsan X4 H107D FPV has been an outstanding success and perfect for experiencing first person view flying. Get yours NOW before stocks run out.
