Hi,
my first post here on forum!

I';m hiking a lot, and need a way to control my 150mm quad on the go, but not want to carry a bulky radio with me.

I';d like to be able to control it just with my android phone or tablet. It would be very useful to me to be able to get it up in the air and have a look of the surrounding area and the trail ahead...
No FPV needed, just flying it line of sight, 50-100m max range, simple takeoff-land control, then check the footage from the SD card...

Also, I';d like to be able to send it on a short autonomous missions to get a look of an area further ahead. I guess I';ll need new FCB with such capability (Naze, APM ?) and a GPS module too. Also what app should I use?

I know Hubsan X4 H501A quad is capable of all that I need, even has a FPV and a wifi booster phone cradle, but I guess there also is a solution that fits my needs with the gear I already have...

Came across a Hobbyking IOS & Android 4CH WiFi Receiver the other day, but not sure how it performs, or is the app it comes with any good for my needs.

Also what are the options for someone generally looking for a small radio transmitter, like DJI Spark and Mavic Pro uses? Seen people using these android game consoles, must admit that';s a perfect form factor for me:



Any advice is much appreciated!

What about this new model also from Hubsan (coming soon) ?. It seems to do everything you need and isn';t wildly expensive.  The transmiter isn';t that big and is a gaming style controller.  Worth the wait maybe ?
