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!

  1. Hey Peter,

    You did a great post. Your review of Hubsan X4H107C quadcopter product is very clear. One thing catches my attention is its size of 2.7 x 2.7 inches. I can’t imagine how I will see it clearly when it is far and sometimes there are many flying objects at the air. I think it depends upon the controller. Generally you made a very interesting review. Thank you for posting a nice one.


    • Thanks Marcy, I really appreciate it! Yes the size of the Hubsan X4 H107C really stands out (pun intended!). But it is so small it can actually fit into the palm of your own hands. You have brought up one of the main concerns here, which is how in the world can you fly if its so small. Well the Hubsan X4 H107C was made for indoor flying only, where other more larger quadcopters are better suited to be flown outdoors!

  2. Wow, that’s a very nice and affordable drones. I thought drones is normally expensive so I was surprised with that price and to have a video camera is great extra. It’s the type of big boys toy my husband would love to play.Where do you buy it? Do they sell and ship to Australia? Thanks for your information.

    • Thanks Maria, and I agree! I used to think all drones would cost a good deal of money, but you can actually find and buy a fantastic drone for very cheap. The video camera is definitely a nice touch, but I would make sure the drone has a good camera before making any kind of investment. In this case, the Hubsan X4 H107C has an excellent 720P camera so no worries there. You can buy a Hubsan X4 H107C right off Amazon. You might also find a nice selection at your nearest Walmart but I prefer buying mine online, given the discounts and I am sure they’d ship to Australia!

  3. Hi Peter
    I have seen some of these drones around but never looked at trying to purchase one.The Hubsan X4 H107C is rated at having 7 minutes flying time. That seems like a very short time.Do these drones have removable battery packs. I would like to be able to have several battery packs on hand for a project requiring more time in the air. They do seem like they would be a lot of fun to fly around, as well as handy in spots with limited access.Could you explain what the “first Person view” means? Thanks for such a detained description of these products. I will refer back to your page before buying one for myself.

    • Sure thing Chas! Sorry I wasn’t specific enough in my review. Yes, the Hubsan X4 has a removable battery pack. I know what you mean, having several battery packs laying around helps greatly and do recommend getting a couple spares.

      First Person View also stands for FPV, and what it does is it lets you fly the actual drone from the screen on the transmitter/controller. This allows you to fly the drone without actually seeing it! Meaning you can pretty much see in the eyes of the drone from up in the sky. It’s a really cool feature and honestly is not something you really see in drones offered this cheap.

      Also, take in mind that its not the Hubsan X4 H107C that offers this, but its more advanced counterpart, Hubsan X4 H107D Review which you can feel free to read more on. I recommend going with any one of these quadcopters all depending on your FPV preference!

  4. Hey there, cool post!

    I was thinking of buying a quadcopter for a very long time. Would you recommend Hubsan X4 H107C for a totally inexperienced person like me, or are there better options and why?

    I also noticed its flying time is 7 minutes. I don’t know a lot about quadcopters, but It doesn’t look much. Is it even enough to get several good images?


    • Thanks Dmitriy! I would say that it really depends. I’m not sure if you saw, but the Hubsan X4 H107C really only measures a couple inches long. So if you’re looking to get a more advanced drone down the line and your goal is really to become a professional at flying more advanced quadcopters, than I would recommend checking out the Syma X5C-W Quadcopter mainly so you can get better adjusted to the actual size. The features are much more similar as well.

      That’s not meant to undermine the Hubsan X4 H107C however! This can be a great drone for anyone looking to get their hands on something small. Take in mind though that this drone is not optimized to be flown outdoors, but is made for some simple indoor enjoyment. If that’s something you are looking for, then I recommend going with the Hubsan X4. Yes, flying time is a bit low, but as I’ve mentioned you can actually buy a spare battery or two, which is something I usually recommend doing down the line anyway.

      • Hey Peter,

        I am not sure at this point, but I may actually be looking for a drone to use outdoors… I think I need to dig a bit deeper into this, but now I know who to ask for an advice 🙂

        BTW, I noticed you probably forgot to add info about its flying distance (I mean X4 H107C) – in the product description. Also would be nice if “Reply” button in comments was highlighted somehow – it’s took me some time to actually find it 🙂

  5. I seem to be coming across quadcopters everywhere these days. Have they increased in popularity suddenly or had I just not noticed them before? Or is it just that the technology wasn’t that good before?

    The Hubsan X4 H107C looks cool but my only concern is the flight time. 7 mins doesn’t seem very long to me. Is this kind of flight time standard for quadcopters?

    • Oh yes, they are becoming popular alright Nate! I’m sure moving forward that they’re only going to be increasing in popularity as well. Yea.. I would say that this increase popularity likely has a lot to do with today’s technology. One of my concerns was also the flight time.. 7 minutes isn’t much at all and the typical 45 min. charging time doesn’t really help either. But that’s why I recommend getting a spare battery or two off Amazon allowing you to charge one while using the other and vice versa.

      Personally, I just try not to let the battery time affect my enjoyment while flying drones. Not all drones are like this however. For example, the Blade 350 QX3 can be flown up to 15 minutes at a time, but these will cost you an upward of $399. Other drones can handle flight times up to 30 minutes, but as I stated, will cost you an extra penny! Overall, the Hubsan X4 H107C drone is still very worth it in my opinion 🙂

  6. This is a very interesting product. This is the first time I have seen this type of mini drone. I didn’t realize that this type of technology was available for less than $100! Does the “C” in H107C mean Camera? I get so caught up in my studies that I am usually quite unaware of what the latest tech toys and gadgets are. This device looks like lots of fun though, especially with the camera. I can’t imagine needing to fly this quadcopter very high, but I am curious, what is the altitude threshold of this little machine?

    • You’ll be surprised at the range and just how high in the air the Hubsan X4 H107C drone can fly. The range between the transmitter and Hubsan H107C drone is approximately 30 meters (or about 100 feet). Isn’t it amazing that drones can be bought for less than $100? Not to mention, that they’re becoming cheaper by the day!

      Also, it would make sense that the “C” in H107C stood for camera.

  7. I liked drones and I’m planning to buy one. I’m just a beginner and I don’t know any of this drone. I don’t know what dorne I should buy and I think I found one now. I think this good for 40$ because I’m just a beginner. Is this bang for the buck? Any other drones for beginners? Can I practice this indoor?

    • The Hubsan X4 H107C is an excellent starter drone John that can definitely be used both indoors and outdoors. Some other models I’d recommend looking into as a beginner would be the AKASO K88, Eachine E010 Mini, and the HS170 by Holy Stone.

      If you’re looking for something pricier with plenty of features/capabilities, I’d highly recommend the U45 Blue Jay! But, there are plenty of great starter drones out there and picking the right one, really all depends on your preferences.

      Things to consider are whether you want a camera, the size of the drone (some are mini, others are “UFO” sized), and than there are other features like Headless Mode which is very useful for beginners. If you’re looking to fly something that can be flown indoors/outdoors, I’d recommend going with one of the miniature drones mentioned above 🙂
