Where To Buy: Amazon.com
If you’re looking for a great quadcopter with an amazing camera then look no further! The Hubsan H107C drone is one of the slickest looking mini drones on the market today and is an upgrade from the ever popular Hubsan H107L drone. The main difference being that the H107C includes a camera, whereas the H107L drone does not. The ability to provide a camera on one of these miniature quadcopters have made them increasingly popular. While the Hubsan H107C quadcopter does not live up to its Hubsan H107D quadcopter counterpart that provides FPV (or first person view), the H107C remains to be one of the best nano drones for both beginners and drone enthusiasts.
Dimensions & Specifications
Today drones are being made in all sizes. From extra large UFO’s to quadcopters that can literally fit in your own palms, the Hubsan H107C is likely one of the most popular quadcopters for its size. Coming in at just 2.7 x 2.7 inches, the Hubsan H107C drone is loved by hobbyists and beginners alike.
It has a very lightweight air-frame build and weighs in at only a pound. Despite its small size, the Hubsan H107C is still durable and capable of withstanding most crashes.
Camera & Video
My favorite feature when it comes to the Hubsan H107C is the camera. Unlike the previous model, the Hubsan H107C not only offers a camera that is capable of shooting videos and taking still images, but does so in 720p. This ability to take videos in HD quality is a superb feature for any miniature drone and is rare to say the least.
One of the biggest drawbacks however, is unlike the Hubsan X4 H107D cannot shoot in First Person View. This isn’t much of a surprise though given the reasonable $40 price tag. One thing I love about this drone is its YAW feature. Instead of having a camera in a remote fixed position, this camera can record and take images with a 360 degree view.
So if you’re looking for a great miniature drone with an awesome camera, the Hubsan H107C is for you.
Flight, Controls, & Durability
The Hubsan H107C includes three different speed settings. Just be careful because if youfly too fast and crash, you might just bust one of its propellors. For this reason, it can be said that the Hubsan drone may not be as durable as other quadcopters that are especially bigger in size. On the other hand, it’s really not the biggest issue if you happen to bust a propellor here and there. They are easily replaceable and just in case, it’s always great to have some spare parts on hand.
When it comes to the flying and controls, the Hubsan H107C has almost everything one needs for an enjoyable flying experience. Including adjustable gyro sensitivity, different modes for your expertise level, and the ability to flip in the air any which way you want makes the Hubsan drone appeal to all sorts of individuals. The only drawback is it may take some getting used to to get the controls down. The right control stick is used merely for speed and the left is used for direction. The benefit of this is the Hubsan allows you to customize which controls do what if you’re looking to change.
Hubsan H107C Overview
Whether you’re looking for a highly affordable drone that is miniature and can fly great or for something that can take some great aerial photography, the H107C is possibly one of the best for its price. An amazing benefit is being able to control the quadcopter from up to 1o0’s of feet away. All in all this is a drone I especially recommend for people looking to later down the line learn how to control the more advanced DJI Phantom and other more difficult quadcopters. This drone however, is meant for nothing more than pure personal enjoyment while being able to take amazing photography from a great distance!
