The Hubsan┬áH109 is a bit of an endless story. Originally slated for release early 2014, so far it failed to materialize. Fast forward to 2015 and still no H109 – but Hubsan did announce the X4 Pro which appears to be an upgraded H109 with several quite unique features. Besides being a GPS-enabled quadcopter, it comes with a three-axis gimbal, a gopro-sized HD camera, 2.4GHz remote control and 5.8GHz video link, as well as a built-in rescue parachute. This quadcopter is scheduled to debut at CES Las Vegas – which is tomorrow.

The star of the show is the flat, sleek remote with built-in touch control for placing waypoints on the map, as well as a separate OLED display for telemetry data.

Banggood lists a tentative price of USD $499.-, which we’re very certain is not going to be the actual, final price – but according to Hubsan the final price will be below USD $1000.-

Hubsan posted a new short teaser video showing the upcoming H109S X4 Pro RTF Quadcopter being thrown into the air. While this is standard fare for 350QX owners, and even a homemade $120 Quadcopter can do the same thing, it’s good to see Hubsan spend time on testing and tweaking their upcoming Phantom-competitor.

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.

Full official blurb after the break.
