With Christmas rapidly approaching, we had a look at a new stocking-filler quadcopter called the Hubsan Q4 H002 from HobbyWow. This nano-scale quadcopter is an impressive little aircraft coming in at under $30/£25 and yet packed full of fun!
Over the years, quadcopters have become smaller and smaller, as has the ability to minaturise the technology within. This new nano-quadcopter from Hubsan incorporates lots of functionality and various modes such as an ‘Expert’, ‘Stunt’ and ‘Headless’ as well as offering video and photographic capabilities, be it at a low resolution.
This quadcopter is so small that it will fit in your pocket but unlike other micro-scale quadcopters, this one is agile, highly controllable and even the transmitter is responsive and very usable.
It does have a few minor issues and we detail those within our review video. In addition, just over halfway through the video we also flight test it and provide samples of the photo and video capabilities.
