The Hubsan X4 H107C Camera Video Recording Version - thread

I just received the newest series of Hubsan X4, H107C with video recording capability.


The Package content:



Found very interesting improvement compare to prior version.
Fact about H107C:

1. Heavy weight!
It's now more than 50grams including battery and nearly 40grams without battery! But don't worry





2. Very powerful.
It capable lift its 50grams weight with ease!! What a beast!

3. New transmitter.
The fake antenna is now removed. But i still dont check the pcb inside.




4. New battery.
It is 11grams 380mah battery. The same size as the blue one from BG. But with new body shell, this battery sit firmly inside battery compartment. No more COG problem or too tight fit. It sit perfectly!






5. New motors!!
Do not know yet the exact motor, but i guess it is regular 8520 brushed motor.





6. New Body shell
The body shell looks fat and the tail is longer. There is a camera modul compartment at the bottom.





7. Camera module
This is the main part of H107C. The video quality is not the best maybe the same as 808 #3 or #9.
video: 720x480 25 fps narrow fov (50-60 deg)
Update: The HD camera now available with much much better video quality at 1280x720 30 fps


Next will shoot and upload the video.

note:
- this thread will be updated with any findings.
- any question or request are welcome.
- where do i get this? you can now get it from here or just check the second post below.

Looks good!

It's nice to see you get spare blades now. I was expecting some with my H107L.

yes, it's important to have spare.
i think you will got spare blades on your H107L box.

And make sure you always use original blade/propeller from Hubsan. That's really affect the performance of X4

Thanks for the pics!

One note... since the motors on the H107C are larger than the H107/H107L, will the Protection Cover (Propeller Guard) for the H107C be different than the one for the H107/H107L as well, since it attaches to the motors?

Can I bind the H107C with H107L TX ?

I was wondering that too. Banggood is listing the same one for both, but I don't see how it could work.

They way the protector is made, it goes down over the motor, with a ring completely around the motor, and it doesn't look like it could strech over a larger motor. If the protector motor ring was split or didn't go all the way around, I could see the same one working, maybe. Maybe the motors aren't as much larger as they look?

No, the protection cover would not fit into H107C. Hopefully H107C would have its own protection cover

Sure, H107C tx can bind to H107L/H107 and vise versa

Is there a way to improve the sound recording?

I did many flights with this Hubsan X4 H107C, but sound is more than quiet, I can only hear some fragments of sound if I turn the speakers of my Win7 to highest level.
Sound is not that important with that poor image quality, but as it is recording audio anyway, a better quality would be cool for some cases, especially for motor diagnostic etc.

when i contacted banggood about this protection if it would fix the hubsan h107c they told me yes it would go order it. now i have it with me but not the hubsan as bg are shipping hubsan starting on monday now am reading on this site about the protection cover wouldn't fix so BG slapped my heading making me believe wat they say .Also is there a way i can choose the colour BG to send to me i have also email BG and looking forward live chat with them. i only like the hubsan with black frame with either red or green stripe unto as show on this page as i order two. order one for me and my lil boy

Aw, I wish I was smarter about this and realized that. The cover probably will not fit over the 107C. At least I'll have a spare for my 107L.

I also experienced the same result. The audio is very low. It seems that they try to avoid the sound of motors/props that might not useful in aerial video. But like you said, sometimes we need the sound to check thw motors problems etc.
Hopefully Hubsan reps see this thread and fix the next batch/version with better audio and video quality as well.

I like Spinning things
Looks like 640 x480 resolution on that camera. I wonder what the CMOS size is? It looks like a pinhole design. Do you use the trim buttons to record picture and video separately?

I wonder if this is a better platform for micro fpv than the X4 V1/V2 since it's ultra compact still but with the much more powerful 8520 motors. Possibly hook the video out wire from the camera up to a micro vtx. Or power a KX2/1.5 gram camera from the power out header assuming the power is cleaned up on the board enough to provide a clean signal and the right voltage.

If you could get close to 8 minutes of flight time with FPV and the stability of the X4 in wind that would be awesome!
