James thnx for your quick reply. What about v939 vs LadybirdV2 then? Stability wise is there a huge difference? Most people say v939 is more stable and fun compared to 929. And its cheaper and light and flip button as well but if V2 is more stable I am ready to forgive extra features..

Thnx

@BDMurdock, Thanks for the kind words my friend! I am planning a trip to the aviation museum of China in a few days and hopefully I'll have a video of the X4 flying among a line of Migs!!! (and hopefully not get shot :P)

@gur75, No problem at all! I do not own the 939 unfortunately, so I can't comment on how it is stability-wise. But both the 939 and the 929 don't have accelerometers so they are at a disadvantage when compared to the others. The V2 hasn't got accelerometers either but I find that it's just as stable as the V1 (perhaps it doesn't self correct as much, but that's not too noticable). Check out the V2 review if you haven't done so already, it's quite a nice quad for its price. With the MJX and the X4, you can really feel the accelerometers kick in and stabilize the quad.

@Kosem, Thanks! I appreciate the kind words my friend... It makes the whole day of test flights and review writing worthwhile! Fun story- a company asked me to review a 500 class quad after seeing these... I refused...going from the 200 sized hoten x to a 500 sized quad with gps is too big of a leap for me! I think I'll keep reviewing micro quads for now! =]

Great review, I have been waiting for this. I have a V929, and a V939... really don't like my V939 at all so I might just have to buy the X4. It really looks great and it was nice to read that you are happy with the performance as well. Thanks for sharing, and yeah me to is hoping for some videos soon.

James Thnx a lot for your replies.. Final Questions: I would like to buy Hubson X4 as its stable enough however it is at backorder should wait a lot. Therefore MJX or V2? V2 is a bit expensive and some people say Devo4 controller is not so good although I do not know about it. Personall MJX is a bit bigger have some light and cheaper. So unless stability does not matter so much would you recommend MJX for stable flight so that I can practice at home and learn more about copters. Thnx

The Hubsan X4

The most advantage on X4 is that the outdoor flying and routine flying in windy day.

That can LB, v939, MJX100 and other microquads too. Not nothing special.

Others will fly away if you do fast movement, like the video here below.

Are you really sure? Do you have one of them (v939, LB etc)?

I had tested all of them, only X4 can do fast movement and suddenly stop, all others will fly away, i checked the X4 motors working in a different way from others. i will post some video later.

Where and when did you test the X4? Nobody of us has it already.

Do you work for Hubsan?

If you're not in the US, it wouldn't be that cheap as I know some others were saying shipping was upwards of $50. However if you are located in the United States I would get a v1 ladybird with 2402d controller. They are on HUGE sale right now for $58.08 at Nitroplanes.com and xheli.com. Then also put in the coupon code pricepickle for another 6% off. With shipping my total came out to less than $70 and the 2402d controller sells for more than that new by itself, so it's a great deal and you get a hobbygrade size/feeling tx that can be used with any of the other Walkera 4ch stuff.

Just got mine in today and it looks awesome.

Back on track, I was supposed to get a x4 for review from directsource4u but haven't heard anything back from them in over 2 weeks, so I guess it's not going to happen. Oh well.
