Or ostrich

Why would anyone need one of these?

I WANT one

I like the idea but the camera would need to be higher res for me to buy.

Can you buy anything like this that does live video?

I've got the upgraded version without the camera and I've flown the **** out of it! Love it! I've bought 6 upgraded 340mah batteries and a parallel charging harness so I can charge them all together and have almost an hours flying time for about the same time it takes to charge. Awesome little quad!

What can i use this for?...

The neighbor next door :P

they do an FPV version with a live stream to the handset, don't think ebuyer sells them though

For anybody that has one, is it powerful enough to hold a gopro if you tape it securely?

The description on eBuyer mentions FPV, but I'm not sure if this really is the FPV version or the non-FPV camera model. Does anyone know for sure?

Recently bought the HD version - great little unit, and spare parts readily available.

Good toy. But I saw professional version for £600. Distance about 2 miles. With goggles you can see how as bird

GoPro will be too heavy for this. Allot of people have attached 720p keychain camera's

youtube.com/wat…fOs

Why would you need a camera on it?! oO

For a second I thought this was a knock off DJi Phantom Quadcopter for professional aerial shots !!

I spent £1000 on mine. Would of been gutted if this did the job.

I know this is a little OT, but can those 'in the know' here, recommend a half way house from this to a pro device, with live view?
Is a parrot a decent choice?

I doubt it is the FPV version - that requires quite a bit more 'stuff'.
If you want higher quality - probably better to get the non-camera version then stick a small camera like the mobius on - which you can then use for FPV if desired later.

I would guess this is a bit too small for a go-pro.

will this hold a gopro?

Thanks - for the extra fiver, might be best to go with this one and stick a mobius on it - I'm sure I read that the camera version has stronger motors than the non-camera, so maybe better suited to carrying extra load?

Best I can find the FPV version is £106 on eBay

I got this, much better than the first gen which was too fragile. Camera is OK, the fpv camera quality is awful and not worth £90 more. Easy to fly, definitely put the blade protector on as doesn't impact performance and buy a crash pack too. Don't go for the larger capacity batteries they add too much weight. Good price so hot.

If he's over 60, no, a bit too old to learn its trickery.
These things are absolutely amazing, huge range, very very very fast when on expert. Do not fly them too high or downwind or indoors until you have learned the 'muscle memory' ...practice in an open garden and be careful, until you have mastered it. I got through lots of (cheap) props and damaged an LED and lost it 5 nights in a row...you get obsessed with them but take it easy, in stages! Great great little device. Maybe pay a wee bit more for the HD cam which aint bad at all. Once you've learned, upgrade to one with GPS and FPV

50 quid more, now (Hong Kong). For what you get, amazing price, but yeah...limited. Pay 150 quid and get all you need.

I also wanted to know that. Are there are decent quadcopters at a reasonable price that would hold a GoPro?

Original Poster

Anyone know which version are these? Also as I won't really use the camera feature is it worth it just for the upgraded motors that come on the cam version, or if the quality is better.

You can actually flip these little babies, when flying in expert mode.

Check out this weeks "Gadget Man"

Meh. Got a camera free one. Just was not stable even after calibrating. Used it a few times and bored with it whizzing off all the time. I calibrated it also after 180 turn and it still buzzed off backwards.

Shafted on delivery to Northern Ireland again......which is a ridiculous 8 quid

The cheap quadcopters are the mini/nano ones which aren't going to be able to hold a GoPro, your looking at £200+ for something which can have that kind of load while keeping a decent run time.
~£400 for a programmable one if you buy a kit, £700+ premade.

Its something I looked into a while back and it was looking like ~£400 (not including build time/cost and spare parts) to get started with something for what I wanted. Something I could program to go to x height, move along a path while carrying a load (GoPro) along with a decent range/flight time and manual control.

Yeah youre looking at something like a walkera qr x350 that bridges the gap between a toy and the £800+ pro stuff.

Is there any difference (other than a camera) between the camera and non-camera version

I currently fly a TBS Discovery which I use FPV and strap of a GoPro for recording.. But I have always been tempted by a little one to play around with.. For £5 extra the camera version makes sence.. But in all honesty am I likely to use the camera?

I just wonder if the £25 version is the better buy.

This won't lift a Mobius will it? Does anybody know one that will?

From the product description -

"The H107C version includes a front mounted camera with a video recording function. Just insert a Micro SDHC (not included) and experience birds-eye views from your Hubsan quadcopter. To balance the extra weight the H107C is fitted with larger more powerful motors."
