Found 23rd Oct 2014
Tiny RC copter, gets pretty good reviews..
Cheapest I've seen anywhere and plenty near me in Leicester at all three stores close to home. Gutted actually, 'cause the I've already bought everything I needed for the person who wanted this. Didn't imagine it'd go this low.

The group of them flying in the dark reminded me of Blade Runner. Someone should do a licensed Police Spinner version!

Even I want 1 after watching that video! Don't think I could get away with saying it's for the kids as there only 1 n 2 x

What about this for £11.99 if you don't mind waiting about 3 weeks from China. Looks similar

Would definitely definitely spend a little more and get the king of nanocopters , the Hubsan 107L which is now down to 27 ish http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00DSZA3VU/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=B00DSZA3VU&linkCode=as2&tag=hott-21&linkId=JBR3WWC5GOSDADPW and is infinitely better than this little thing in the original post. It has a massive range, much higher flying time, cheap spares are everywhere, is much more sturdy all round, can carry a small camera no problem, nicer lights, great flight controller for nicer flips and agility once you've got used to it, a controller that is 100 times better than the one for the teeny one. Just get the Hubsan. You won't regret it.



Thanks - I think I'll go for this one instead, looks very good.
(For an 11 year old as a present)

I've been looking for something to spend my £10 voucher on - cheers OP

I have one of these and it's AMAZING! Definitely not for beginners though, it does take some practice to get going.

I did buy one of the cheaper similar ones too for my other half but it wasn't nearly as good as the real thing.

I want that one!

Maplin will price match this, and their Christmas promotion has started to so there are decent deals in store as well

Now if I add some missiles or even better a cream pie. Can have pie fights !!!!! Voting hot

Got this, it's pretty much the exact same.
I got the camera version for an extra few quid.

Anyone have a link to a camera that attaches to this? Or the amazon one that has been linked into the deal? I am clueless. I have been watching the great quality videos on YouTube that have been captured while flying these things and want to have a dabble. Thanks

Sadly, there are not really any cameras that this would carry. It could barely carry a bigger battery even. Your best choice by far for an entry level aerial photography rig would be a Hubsan with the 2MP integrated banggood.com/Hub…1SD (on that link they give 5 percent off with code GOODBG at checkout)

I've been flying Hubsans for ages now, here's one of my first vids, but this was with a keychain camera strapped beneath it youtube.com/wat…jMg
With it strapped beneath, you need to take into account the added weight, build raised landing skids, a dampener, hope it doesn't hit a puddle, etc. With the all in one there is none of that bother. Actually, the integrated one there has larger motors and a bigger battery to handle the camera, so there are none of the worries, just a lot of useful tech for not a ton of money. Go to the beach? Film yourselves from 100m up, with a decent video and good pics (better than my vid for sure). Having explored every option it's definitely the way to go.

All the video of cameras attached to husbans are the X4 range not the Q4
Depending on the model the X4's can take a 5g to 10g load which is enough for the 808 camera.
You can get the upgraded version for ~£26 which should be able to take ~10g, the upgraded version with a built in camera for ~£33 or with HD camera for ~£45.

They are great little gadgets and easy enough to use, just have to be careful with wind if your using them outside as they are seriously tiny.
The Q4 is only 5cmx5cm and weighs 10g, that's the size of 4 2p coins in a square the and weight of one and a half 2p coins.

Damn, I thought about posting this a couple of days ago but didn't think it would get hot as the X4 has been below 20 quid before.

I guess this is identical to the hubsan Q4. Only problem is after a couple of weeks of daily use, no major crashes the front motors don't spin up enough to take off, I've replaced the motors so must be the board. Can't return it now since I've soldered on new motors.

Also I could never get the accelerometer to calibrate, tried lots of different methods but the front lights never flashed to confirm calibration.

I prefer the Q4 to the X4 for flying indoors. I don't think the Q4 could take a camera, it is very nippy though. You can't easily change the battery so can't have a pile of charged up spares like you can with the X4.

The Hubsan has a really nice wrap around/wrap over prop guard that transforms indoor flying and outdoor for noobs. I got a pack of 3 for a fiver delivered, including one glow in the dark. It's very light but strong, stronger than the earlier prop guards.

That's good advice on the wind. Remember, this is all about a gradual learning process. After 30 mins you have the hang of basic movement,but it still takes days to program your head to know what to do instinctively, and only then should you fly high or far out, and only then, in wide open spaces with little wind, once you've moved up to expert mode. Also, paint some tape orange and put it on your quadcopter, black is not easy to find (flashing lights at dusk are easy to spot though). Seems like everyone goes out, sends it 150 metres up (in 10 seconds), then loses sight / control of it, can't recover, and it ends up in byebye land over a hedge. Slowly, lowly, wide open spaces. You need to be on expert mode for the control you'll need at distance or height.
Or just attach a skeleton to it youtube.com/wat…szM

Excellent..The quality in your vids I s exactly what I am after. I don't want to spend a crazy amount of money tbh. I have just bought a house in delavich village in the Highlands and wanted to get good enough quality vids that I could send back to family etc. This looks like I will be good enough

Thanks for the links

How long will it fly for on a charge and what's the range?

Has anyone actually managed to order any. That was undoubtedly the worst online shopping experience I've ever had. Argos, your website is a joke.

How long will it fly for on a charge and what's the range?


The original nano one quoted here from Red 5 flies for 5 minutes, they don't state the range but it will be small I'm sure due to the extreme size limitation and toy-grade controller, about 50m tops. The Hubsan 107l I quoted, it flies for about 8 mins on the stock battery or 10-12 on the bigger ones I got (350-500mah), I have not been able to find the outer limits of its range when flying, they say it is 100-150 m but I've put it out of sight beyond and I pull the stick and it's still coming back.

mine lasts 5-10 minutes and a charge take about 45 minuted IIRC.

The batteries lifetime will be longer if you don't let it drain too low after the 'low battery' flashing starts.
