Hubsan x4 LED FPV

The flying club that I belong to is always on the lookout for models that can be flown indoors.  From October to March each year we hire the indoor bowling clubs facilities where we get sausage and chips and a good night's flying practice for $3, bargain.

 

Hubsan x4 h107The Hubsan X4

 

first came to my attention when one of the other guys turned up with one, when I first saw how small it was I thought that there is no way they could be easy to fly, it looked too small to be controllable, how wrong I was, the Hubsan X4 is a great little quadcopter.

 

The box contains the Hubsan X4 quadcopter with blue led eyes that tell you when the transmitter has successfully connected (a steady glow) and when the battery is getting low (flashing rapidly), a digital radio, a USB battery charger, and a small Li-Po battery. The radio, which is shaped a bit like a Playstation controller, has 4 channels, which enables you to control up down forward and backwards of the quad plus side to side movement and pivoting in mid-air, it also has trim rocker switches next to the controls that you use to adjust the hands-free hover of the quadcopter so that it hovers without sliding or rotating, it also has an expert mode which turns up stick responses to enable acrobat mode.

The Hubsan X4 should be treated with the same respect that you would give to a larger quadcopter. If you are a beginner or are just getting used to flying a 4 channel model just take it slow and steady at first and you will be fine, so here are some tips for those new to flying quadcopters:

needs a level surface so that it can calibrate itself once the battery has been connected. The “eyes” of the Hubsan X4 will glow solid blue once the calibration has taken place and it has successfully connected with the transmitter, if it does not connect first time, just disconnect the battery and turn the transmitter off and start the connection process again. occasionally you may want to do a more advanced calibration procedure and this video will show you how to do it.


To calibrate the Hubsan X4, turn on the transmitter making sure that the throttle is in the off position, next you need to attach the lipo battery to the Hubsan X4. With the Hubsan  X4 placed on a flat surface, put the quadcopter into expert mode by pushing the right hand stick in until it clicks, then, holding the left hand stick in the bottom right corner, move the right hand stick left and right until the LEDs on the Hubson X4 flashes in response. In the above video you can see this demonstrated.

If you crash the Hubson X4 be sure to cut the throttle  immediately! If the motors cannot turn they can burn out rapidly. So far I have not experienced this problem but others have if you search the forums.

If you crash your Hubsan X4 and one of the motors jam, this can often be repaired with the help of a small pair of pointed nose pliers, remove the motor from it’s housing and apply pressure with the pliers to the top and bottom of the motor until you hear a click. See video below.

You may need some help with this if you have never used a soldering iron before. If you need to replace a motor this is easy to do, simply heat up the solder that holds the motors 2 wires to the circuit board and then apply a little more solder and fix the new motor wires to the board taking care that the solder on the 2 wires do not touch each other, if they do, take them off and start again.

You may like to do some  mods to your Hubsan  X4 before you fly it for the first time to lessen the chances of mishaps: YouTube link.

The origin of quadcopter flight is worth checking out, so if you want to learn more about it, have a look at this Wikipedia explanation on quadcopters here:
