Giveaway: Hubsan X4 FPV Quadcopter

By: on October 28, 2013

Enter to win your very own Hubsan X4 FPV Quadcopter from SpyHawk (a $220 value)! A true RC toy for the 21st century, this flier is compact and lightweight, with a 3 megapixel eagle eye that reports all that it sees on its journeys in real-time, feeding video directly to the pilot's 4.3" LCD screen.

What began as the SpyHawk FPV (First Person View) has grown into a thriving family tree of cutting-edge remote control and surveillance technology. And SpyHawk's latest addition to its handheld vehicles of flight, the Hubsan X4 FPV, could be every RC pilot's, voyeur's, and human being who digs hi-tech toys' dream come true. The X4 FPV is a palm-sized quadcopter with a built-in video camera that feeds live pictures directly to its controller's LCD screen, so users can navigate according to what they see overhead, or by what they see in 640 x 480 resolution directly in front of them. The X4 FPV's miniscule size also makes it safe and enjoyable to fly indoors. In fact, I'm pretty sure the quadcopter's specialty is ascending shower curtains and hurdling over their rods.

Additional Hubsan Technical Specs

  • Upgraded 6-axis flight control system with adjustable gyro sensitivity.
  • 4 coreless motors.
  • 2.4GHz control frequency and 5.8GHz video transmission frequency.
  • Instant video review capabilities.
  • Control distance of up to 100 meters (in open space with no interference.)
  • 30-minute charge time via USB.
  • Flight time of around 7 minutes.
  • 4 LED lights for night flying.
