Any reviews?

Add delivery cost £2.95

Wasn't a bigger one of these in the papers recently for cutting the hand of Enrique Iglesias on stage? Then again these poop artists are always trying silly stuff in their gigs to start a stupid trend like the Cyrus twerk as if twerking wasn't a thing before she was even born.

Nothing comprehensive:

Is this better than the hubsan x4 HD?

It is pretty tiny, about size of a hand.. deterred me but hot for others

A few reasons to not own this potential piece of junk:

1) Definitely have no purpose for this (not sure who will)
2) Have no idea what I'd want to see from above near me
3) No reviews to confirm if it's any good
4) 60 minutes charge for 6 minutes use which can only get worse (sounds just like my phone which I've sent to be repaired)

Looks and sounds cool, bought it. Thanks OP, I think.

Ordered for father's day

"The camera is 0.3 mega pixels. Thanks Lucas"
Cold for me.

Do they break easily if poorly handled
Yes

Hmmm, Dilemma.

This one or the one I have been looking at on Amazon?

It's £25. It isn't intended to produce footage to accompany the voice of Sir David Attenborough.

How long does it fly for though? 2minutes?

What is the point? Most don't have the space to use indoors. And don't you need permission to use outdoors???

AFAIK you can fly anywhere public as long as you're more than 50m away from people

UK drone regulations:
-The operation must not endanger anyone or anything.
-The aircraft must be kept within the visual line of sight (normally taken to be within 500 m horizontally and 400 ft vertically) of its remote pilot (i.e. the ‘person in charge’ of it). Operations beyond these distances must be approved by the CAA (the basic premise being for the operator to prove that he/she can do this safely).
-Small unmanned aircraft (irrespective of their mass) that are being used for surveillance purposes are subject to tighter restrictions with regard to the minimum distances that you can fly near people or properties that are not under your control. If you wish to fly within these minima, permission is required from the CAA before operations are commenced.
-CAA permission is also required for all flights that are being conducted for aerial work (i.e. in very simple terms, you are getting paid for doing it).
-The 'remote pilot' has the responsibility for satisfying him/herself that the flight can be conducted safely.


You can build a good quad from scratch for less than 200£. Order all components (frame, esc, motors ...) from China and assemble it yourself. Great fun and it will have the performance of a TBS Discovery.

Have you got a link to any sort of guide to doing this please?

I own a Phantom 2 and using a £600 drone is not as 'fun' as most would assume.
This is a great option for having a good laugh with your friends and i am tempted to get one, for that reason.

60 mins charge for 6 mins.

not worth it. over time performance will reduce

Guide lines you stated are for sUAV's under 7kg. Technically this applies to this toy too, and please don't call quadcopters drones, it makes them seem evil. I do encourage learning these rules now, before you eventually fly something bigger, but for something like this toy that weights less than 100g they are a bit overkill. The only thing I'd be worried with if you were to fly this is privacy... and perhaps not flying it too far since flying by LOS on quads can be a bit disorienting for something this small.
Now if you get this and decide that you enjoy flying this, why not take it a step further. Build your own, it will take some soldering skills and online research (this is also the time you need to start strictly following guide lines since diy tends to be a bit heavier (i.e. 250 size quads are about 300g + lipo) ... Places to start are probably rcgroups and the best place to buy is usually Hobbyking if you order in bulk (shipping prices are a bit steep)...
Also, if you decide to build your own, it would be worth going to your local rc club and learning to fly something bigger there, with some people that can help out and teach you.
Its a great hobby, has its ups and downs. Also might be worth noting that this hobby is not cheap, and expect to break a few things every now and again... but it certainly is rewarding.

Seriously though, if you are interested have a look at Banggood They sell some good kit for a third of the price of UK retailers Any questions fire them my way Gliders/Quadcopters/Helicopters are my hobby.

Does this look familiar ? CX20 Flys identical to the Phantom 1, some of the components inside are identical including the GPS board.

Ive had a test fly of the Inspire from banggood and all I can say is "WOW"

The above are fun but can get boring quickly if you are not into video recording. Maybe a 250 FPV Racer may be more fun

I agree and find a good balance for flying is a 250 quad for the fast, fun flying and then my hexacopter for filming and smooth flying. Phantom 3 is on order too

Have one of these (well, the Hubsan branded variety). It's a fun little toy - if you remember that you're paying less than £30 for it and judge your expectations accordingly...

Also, pro tip - when learning how to control it, make sure there are no house plants in the vicinity. I lost control, smashed it in to my wife's weeping fig and took most of the leaves and half of the branches off. Cost me a lot more than £30 to make that right!

It's not this = cold (hexoplus.com/ or this https://www.lily.camera/)

Good deal hot I have a a similar one, just need to collaborate all the blades so it flies directly upwards though and not off to one side like it does at the moment!
Edited by: "MJ10" 8th Jun 2015

Looks like a good price.
I got the Hubsan non-HD camera one, which this looks to be.
If its the same the camera is meh, due to the lack of stabilisation the videos have wobble even if hovering and no wind.

Just bare in mind small quads like this need very little wind if your flying outside. Get a gush and your hunting for them 300m away.

If its just a rebrand of the hubsan invest in a few extra sets of blades and a few batteries so you can just swap them out and carry on flying.

If it is a Hubsan the controls are back to front, Accelerator and Steering on the wrong sticks IMO, and my last Hubsan broke within 2 weeks

Well that's me out.

I fully expected this £25 drone to come with a years contract with BBC to lease out David Attenborough so I could reproduce their "Planet Earth" documentary.

Bitterly disappointed.

Oh wait, it does say in the small print that the video is accompanied by the voice of Katy Price though.....

Definitely out.

Link shows £29.98 for me
