Hubsan H109S Pro X4 announced

January 2, 2014 11:00 | By | 5 Comments

Pining for that upcoming Hubsan H109? Hubsan’s upcoming Phantom-competitor certainly looks interesting, and now they’re upping the ante with the announcement of the GoPro-ready H109S Pro X4!

h109s-x4-00Features are GPS position hold and return to land, barometer sensor for precise altitude hold and the possibility of waypoint capability via future updates.

Perhaps most interestingly this comes with a massive 5300mAh battery for flight times of up to 30 minutes, according to Hubsan. Sadly though, it comes with a modified version of the old Hubsan FPV transmitter, so the question is whether the short transmitter battery life issue has been fixed. Also according to the manufacturer this will use the Hubsan radio protocol, which means it’s a non-hopping, single channel 2.4GHz system. This time however they added a proper SMA connector for the FPV antenna, and they even supply both a linear patch as well as a circular cloverleaf antenna in the set, so you can exchange antenna depending on the situation.

No word on price yet, though preorders for the vanilla H109 are at $150 right now. With the right price point and proper performance this could very well be a solid competitor in the field of RTF multirotors. Planned release date is end of February 2014.

    I would like to know when these become available to purchase. I am very interested in purchasing one.

    Latest info direct from our Hubsan supplier says mid-March, which might still be optimistic.

    No news yet on the Hubsan 109S PRO, I was expecting something by now but Hubsan have gone of the radar with news about this models release date. On their website they have no information and are still showing the 109 that they say won’t be produced!

      It might also be an issue of price. It’s not enough to offer a quadcopter with gps, you have to have a unique selling point or a much better price. In addition, getting the technical point right is not easy either, as can be seen with all the issues Walkera had to fight with.
