The X4 FPV is a small, lightweight drone made by Hubsan and designed to be flown with FPV goggles. Its battery charges in about 30 minutes and is good for about 7 minutes of flight time. This drone is great for beginners, kids, and anyone who wants to experience FPV without spending much money.

Hubsan has earned a reputation for affordable, fun and reliable drones that compete with heavyweights like DJI. The X4 is no exception and it’s one of the best-selling drones in its price range. It comes in a neat box featuring photos of the drone and controller with a quick list of its advanced features. Everything is pre-assembled aside from the rotors and fits easily back into the box after use.

Unlike more expensive camera drones, the X4 doesn’t come with GPS waypoints or orbit mode. However, it does have a built-in viewer that eliminates the need for a separate mobile device to fly. It also has an automatic return to home feature and a long battery life.

Its controls are easy to learn and the drone is able to perform several aerial flips and rolls. The included 4.3" LCD screen on the controller is great for watching live recording in first-person view (FPV). If you want to expand your X4’s paltry 47° FOV, there’s an add-on lens that’s reported to work well with it for about $4-$8.
