Hello and welcome to another Drones Globe review! As always we are ready to bring to you the best and most updated drone related information possible. Therefore, here we are, reviewing a very recent Hubsan release. And since our aim is to always make sure you get the best value for your money or at least get the needed information to make your own decision. With this being said let us move on to discuss Hubsan H111D! Many people agree this is one of the best drones for youngsters and/or dogs. Do you agree? If you have been looking for a nano FPV (real time video transmission) quadcopter with all you need to fly FPV ready out of the box, you have come to the right place. Hubsan H111D is definitely one of the most promising small FPV drones currently being released into the market. It is surprisingly affordable considering its quality and it features its own FPV monitor, on top of that it also includes one of the most recent features in low-cost drones the Altitude Holder! Yes, you read it well, one more affordable Toy Grade drone with Altitude Holder (also known as Barometer Set Height). Drones Globe has predicted in the past that a wide variety of new Toy drones would include this feature and its happening! Let us take a deeper look into this amazing and affordable nano FPV quadcopter by Hubsan.
Camera and FPV
First of all, Hubsan Q4 H111D comes in a complete FPV package and it’s the FPV version of another Hubsan release the H111C (only camera, no FPV). Real time video transmission is currently one of the most sought features among drone enthusiasts and casual flyers. While most companies are releasing FPV products which demand the pilot to own a smartphone in order to connect via WiFi and display video to its screen, this Q4 H111D goes further! Still for a very affordable price, Hubsan has included a built-in 4.3” screen on the 2.4 GHz remote controller (with 4 channels) in order to display good quality live video. It would be expected of this drone to have a higher price tag due to having its own FPV monitor, but no, Hubsan invested in a great FPV flyer with no need to save on the live video monitor. Real time video transmission is done via 5.8 GHz frequency. The camera records and displays 720p video (yet to be confirmed) and its megapixels are still not known, most likely it will be 0.3MP or 1MP (2MP would be great, let’s wait and see!). Camera is, obviously, also capable of taking photographs.
Stable in air
Hubsan Q4 H111D is a great flyer and it will fit the needs of even the most of beginners. It has a 6 Axis Gyro which ensures good stability and control. Besides being a nano quadcopter (very small) H111D is also very lightweight (only 50gr) making it a perfect Toy to take anywhere easily inside your pocket or backpack. It is capable of flying both indoor and outdoor. Its control distance (considering it’s a nano FPV) it’s very decent, ranging between 50 and 100 meters (live video transmission is 100 meters). Since it’s a small and affordable FPV toy quadcopter its range is slightly above the average control distance for quadcopters within this budget (with this characteristics).
Altitude holder feature is here too!
Now let’s discuss one of the most important characteristics of Hubsan Q4 H111D, its features. As you may already be aware by now, if you follow Drones Globe regularly, for quite some time we have been announcing Altitude Holder as the feature on the spotlight for this year of 2016 in the low-cost Toy Grade drone market. Our prediction has come true, indeed Altitude Holder (or Barometer Set Height) has become one of the most implemented features on camera drones. Of course Hubsan couldn’t stay behind of its competitors, therefore they have included Altitude Holder in this great line of nano models. Altitude Holder allows the pilot to lock the drone’s height, therefore H111D will maintain that same height without user’s input. This allows pilot to focus on recording aerial footage, taking photos or watching the live video on its FPV monitor. Besides this amazing and innovative feature on the low-cost drone market, H111D also features the, nowadays, more common Headless Mode (for easier orientation despite where drone’s front is pointing at), LED lights for night flights and 360º aerial rollover with just the push of a button. A great set of features, if Hubsan had included Home Return it would have been perfect!
Concerning drone’s battery it uses a 3.7 voltage 180mAh lipo, a small battery capable of powering up to 7 minutes of flight time. However, when using camera and FPV the time will obviously reduce, if so expect only 5 minutes. Not the best flight time out there in the market, but if we take into consideration the size of the battery and all what has to power it is understandable. The 2.4 Ghz remote controller does not use a chargeable battery, instead it uses four AA batteries. The 180mAh lipo battery takes only 30 minutes to fully charge, therefore it won’t take long before you can get back in the air!

I’m sure you won’t regret buying it for yourself or offering it to someone. It will ensure fun and good aerial footage, either indoor or outdoor!
