    FPV on a Hubsan X4 Micro Quadcopter

    Here's a Blog post about our FPV Hubsan X4 to get things started!

    http://fpvuk.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/hubsan-x4-fpv.html

    And here's the onboard video: http://fpvuk.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/...uadcopter.html

    That's my first flight and its a bit up and down. Trying to hover in a confined space by FPV is always asking for trouble, FPV is much easier whilst maintaining forward flight...but that's tricky in the living room! haha!

    All the best

    I have the Hubsan and the 1SQ.. I gotta say that I far prefer the 1SQ to the Hubsan.. While the construction on the 1SQ is a but less thought out, it flys far better. Also the trim/gain on the radio of the 1SQ blows the Hubsan away.. I think they needed to put a bit more into the Hubsan before turning it loose myself..

    That said, I fly them both all the time

    (this is just flying them... no FPV on either of them)

    I will see about building FPV rig one of them..
    Poke it with a fork.. done...

    Hi RandallJ,

    I haven't heard of or flown a "1SQ" but since I can't imagine how the X4 could be improved (besides missiles) it must be good!

    All the best

    They look pretty good fun, we have FPV`d one of our Hubsan`s. It took the extra weight really well and we are more than happy with the results

    I got the pieces coming to FPV the 1SQ.. will update you on build and flight..

    I haul milkbones (yea the dog treat) with the 1SQ.. so should haul the FPV rig.. sorry no missiles... but I am working on a golfball grabber

    Would have been easier if you sold the tx with the battery already attached.. lol.. I did find some tiny batts and got them in different mAh ratings.. see how much we can pick up
