Hubsan H107C: X4 Mini Quadcopter Drone Camera Version with Camera
The Hubsan H107C X4 Quadcopter in black and red is a quad-rotor, palm-sized RC helicopter that features a 2.4GHz, 4-Channel transmitter and a built-in 0.3MP, 720 x 240 resolution camera. The most notable feature of this quadcopter is its size, even with a prop-to-prop wingspan of just 5.75" it sill has room for a camera. To record video there is a MicroSD/MicroSDHC memory card slot below the "tail" section that is activated using a button just to the side of the card slot. Finally, a 3.7V, 380mAh lithium-polymer battery tucks away inside the body providing up to 7 minutes flying time.
The transmitter (TX) supports both Mode 1 and Mode 2 stick configurations. Mode 2 is typically preferred in the U.S. as many argue it more closely simulates actual aircraft controls, however some international users may be more accustomed to Mode 1.

First of all, the props on it are pretty flimsy. They bend and chip VERY easily if you bump it into stuff. If you put on the included prop guard, you shouldn't have problems like JamesF had with scaring up a ceiling. The prop guard is also kinda flimsy and can break fairly easily. Just be careful not to slam it into stuff.
If you crash it, you can damage the tiny motors that are in it. My son crashed it one time, I think it was upside down, and after that one of the motors didn't seem to want to spin up every time you tried to play with it. He had to manually turn the rotor a little while it was on really slow to get it to spin up. This wasn't all that bad, just annoying. Luckily, the other place replaced it. Unfortunately, the price went up from when we bought it. Fortunately, they gave a credit to offset the difference. I don't know how good monoprice is at swapping things out, but I don't think it is as easy. Maybe they can fix that.
Also, if you crash it, the body of the craft is designed to not break the arms. There is a point near the motors that comes apart when you crash hard. Just snap them back together and it is fine again. Saves problems of breaking the airframe on it and having to buy another.
The controls for this tiny aircraft are VERY twitchy. If you are new to quad's, I would suggest turning the sensitivity down to the lowest point. That makes it more stable and easy to fly. It is pretty easy to adjust. Hold down the right stick until it beeps and shows SE on the display. Click the left stick to change the thing you are adjusting. That will let you adjust the yaw, pitch, and roll controls. Hold the right stick again to exit out.
The parts to repair this quadcopter are very easy to get and pretty easy to replace, except for the motors which I would think you would have to do some soldering to replace. The batteries for this are very small and removable which helps more. I would suggest buying at least 2 extra batteries. You will be surprised how fast 7 minutes will go when you are having fun.
Oh, and most importantly, DO NOT TAKE THIS QUADCOPTER OUTSIDE!!!!! It is MUCH too small and will be too easily affected by the wind.
easy to fly after adjusting sensitivities
easy to get replacement parts if needed
removable battery for more fun when one goes dead
CONS: tiny motors can get messed up if you crash
the props get dinged up REAL easy
a little high priced for the size of the device
the camera is a bit lower quality than you would expect
too twitchy out of the box needing adjustments to the controls
Wow 2 This small drone was way better quality than I ever expected for the price I paid. And it is pretty much indestructible. My friend (who received this Christmas present) has already crashed it numerous times and it still runs and looks like new. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about his ceiling. I told him he should first learn to fly it outside before flying it inside his house but noooo he wouldn't listen to me. He is however listening to his wife who was ready to kill him. Even though it was a present for my friend, I can't stop playing with it. Who'd have ever thought that a couple of 60 plus year old dudes could still have so much fun with a toy. Monoprice, you have given us back our childhoods. Now excuse me, I have to run, I hear the ice cream truck coming :)
PROS: lighting fast shipping, Small, sturdy, high quality, inexpensive, addicting, FUN!
CONS: Wish flight times would be longer than about 7 minutes and charging the battery takes about an hour. Guess I got to buy spare batteries.

Lastly, it was great getting advance from the Monoprice staff via the phone and online chatthey are very knowledgeable and patient with me answering questionsThank you!
PROS: Excellent to learn on. It is quick, agile, and most of all fun!! It will help me to become a better pilot before I move up to a more expensive unit. Again there are plenty of YouTube videos that will provide tips and help understand things regarding the unit and the controller.
CONS: None. It goes without saying sooner or later you will need replacement props.
PROS: Cheap (price)
Tough A LOT
Flying like a charm
CONS: Gaz isn't affortable.........
PROS: Cheap, fast excellent controller especially in expert mode, nice camera too.
