I have a micro quad like this, non-FPV version, and after maybe 10 flights, the batteries stop charging! Anyone have a solution for this? Why spend so much money on a micro when you have to buy new batteries every 10 or so flights.

Great video thanks. I bought the nano to use with my Fatshark goggles and it is a blast. It was good to see the others too.

I got a nano qx after Christmas as my entry into the hobby. I love it but I've made a few modifications. http://imgur.com/nRG2LZr

I have had a Hubsan FPV for quite some time now and I change frequency on the Hubsand and on my goggles to match up and I dont have to rely on the videolink to the transmitter anymore.

The radio has a BiQuad antenna built in for the video so it is very directional. i simply mounted a short piggyback so I have an external connector and this gives me Cloverleaf option and this really improves the signal.

A perfect little toy for indoor events and bashing in the garden.

Those all look like a blast! I would of like to see them outdoors and see if the video was a little better. Also I was wondering if the camera on the nano was removable. Maybe use the little back pack system on other things.

The camera on the Nano is removable. It's attached with a little double sided foam tape. It's this thing http://www.horizonhobby.com/multirotor/ultra-micro-fpv-camera-and-video-transmitter-spmva1100.

To have a wider FOV (field of view) on the Hubsan H107D you could mount a wide angle lens. Banggood has 2 cheap lenses that fit (albeit with a little bit of DIY) on the H107D
- A jelly lens: http://goo.gl/me0LM8
- And a 0.67x wide angle lens: http://goo.gl/gT3Qat

I bought the hubsan last year and am not happy because THE voltage of mine drops very quick after one minute flight to à 3.2 volt. New batteries was no solution .
