Not only that, it comes equipped with a monitor on the transmitter, which is ideal for any beginner that doesn’t have their own goggles yet. With dual rates, of high and low, and different flight modes, there should be something for everyone here. Let’s take a closer look at the Hubsan H123D Jet!

    May need some turning and ratios needs to adjusted to your liking and when flip over and it blacks our it would be because of the antenna is dipole and not a circle polarized antenna . Dipole only send sig form the sides not the top

  2. SynoSlayer on August 11, 2020 at 9:51 am

    Another great video

  3. Joel Rivero on August 11, 2020 at 9:52 am

    Looks like it needs a higher rate. Flips to slow. You didn’t say if you can connect to betaflight if you can that would help alot.

  4. Cristiano Cabral on August 11, 2020 at 9:53 am

    Drone does not bind more than faser?

  5. Ben Foong on August 11, 2020 at 9:54 am

    I’m thinking of getting this or Emax’s tinyhawk rtf offering . Which do you think is better?

  6. MI. RC LIFE on August 11, 2020 at 9:55 am

    Good job fetching the drone Popeye

  7. Jacob Cushman on August 11, 2020 at 9:57 am

    Awesome drone I’d love to get in to racing drones I always have and I’d love to know we’re you got your Scooby Doo shirt from awesome shirt.

  8. xristos zim on August 11, 2020 at 9:57 am

    Really bad RC Drone .

  9. Bent Water on August 11, 2020 at 9:59 am

    10 minutes flight time and 3 hours to charge. Where do I get something so awesome? I do like your videos because you give an honest opinion and don’t just say it’s great buy it.

  10. Original Compositions on August 11, 2020 at 10:00 am

    Nice start to the video. .. Keep up the great content/work. Always watching..

  11. Buddy 1 on August 11, 2020 at 10:01 am

    DAMN! That Scooby shirt, is tight as shit!

  12. Omar Kharnivall on August 11, 2020 at 10:01 am

    This or 122d?

  13. Kriptic on August 11, 2020 at 10:02 am

    Lookd exactly like my rodeo 110…besudes 110 is faster

  14. Panayiotis Alkiviades on August 11, 2020 at 10:05 am

    The damn transmiter needs 4 AA batteries almost every day!

  15. BIG DRONE FLYER77 R/C on August 11, 2020 at 10:05 am

    Those controllers never have recorded even on the h501ss. So did they do away with the built in dvr on the drone? I reviewed the h122 brushed verison and it had the dvr. Thanks for sharing guys.

  16. DutchRC Adventures on August 11, 2020 at 10:05 am

    Howdy Sailors ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you end up upgrading the firmware on yours?? (to the Tuneable firmware that is)

  17. Isaac Mills on August 11, 2020 at 10:05 am

    The camera looks like it has bad quality

  18. kefbeef on August 11, 2020 at 10:07 am

    i bought the x4 in 2020 and its awesome. about nine minutes of flight time. now it comes with true acro and you can tune the pidโ€™s. so if you have time please do another review of it i think it deserves another chance.

  19. Melik On The Beat FPV on August 11, 2020 at 10:08 am

    thanks 4 the review, very great specific details and straight to the point!๐Ÿ›ฉ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  20. JACK on August 11, 2020 at 10:08 am

    Don’t be insecure, keep the mustache if YOU like it. Can I borrow Popeye next time I can’t find something? I find myself watching your videos even if I have no interest in the product. Good people are too hard to find. Now I have to watch my computer at a 6′ distance to be safe. Haha. Be safe and stay well.

  21. Cyphre75 on August 11, 2020 at 10:10 am

    Nate, you are a really lucky guy! Perfect wife, perfect dog and you can earn money with that great hobby. Btw another great video. But I’m not sure if I should buy it.

  22. Geoff 1 on August 11, 2020 at 10:11 am

    I love the whiskers ๐Ÿ˜Š where can I buy one like yours!

  23. RC Hobbyist Extreme on August 11, 2020 at 10:12 am

    Calm evening? What is That? We haven’t had one this summer at all. I have been flying all mornings this summer because the wind blows up till dark. It’s strange. You need to shave that stash,then try again next year. I found my first couple trays came out scruffy. Now I can cut it off and my wife laughs,she says I look funny without it. It grows in overnight I swear. Smaller quads are harder to see with me. Anything small like that is going to get smashed easily with my eyesight. You younger guys have no

  24. nstrack1017 on August 11, 2020 at 10:14 am

    Don’t worry, the mustache will thicken up when you hit puberty

  25. storm3016 on August 11, 2020 at 10:14 am

    Don’t worry about the stache Nate. Mine didn’t fill in until I reached 40 so there’s still hope ๐Ÿ˜› Sounds like the drone has got plenty of potential, they just need to straighten out the software and/or settings. I take it there’s no F3 flight-controller on this one, does it have a USB port on the flight-controller at least?

  26. Alexander on August 11, 2020 at 10:16 am

    It’s a good thing you’re not in the British Royal Navy, because you would have been told to shave for not having a "full set." You should shave though because it looks terrible…

  27. Andrew Wilson on August 11, 2020 at 10:17 am

    Hubsans facebook announced the release of the new tuning tool and firmware update for the H123D yesterday. I wonder if this will make it possible for a normal acro experience

  28. Buddy 1 on August 11, 2020 at 10:18 am

    You guys are an awesome tandum

  29. WVinicius RJ on August 11, 2020 at 10:19 am

    you need to activate dual rate to do flips without assistance

  30. ken halverson on August 11, 2020 at 10:19 am

    Thank you

  31. Drone PB on August 11, 2020 at 10:20 am

    Does he have Altitude Hold? Thankful.

  32. Christian Velasco on August 11, 2020 at 10:21 am

    "Lens Hood" is for "LENS" that’s a monitor hood

  33. brain Freeze on August 11, 2020 at 10:21 am

    Popeye is a new breed drone retriever.

  34. bogs lead on August 11, 2020 at 10:21 am

    the antenna on hubsan suck the sd card slot on transmitter is for up date softwear

  35. bushpilot2001 on August 11, 2020 at 10:23 am

    You guy’s are still new to the hobby. You flew badly w/ this one. Your flying skill’s, not very good and that’s o.k. You have year’s ahead of u to do that. What a fiasco this video was. Better luck next time.

  36. billy oldham on August 11, 2020 at 10:25 am


  37. Rex Fariss on August 11, 2020 at 10:29 am

    Popeye is a smart little dog, reminds me a bit of my own, I really wish people wouldn’t be as mean with their comments, the world would be a much better place.

  38. Donnie johnson on August 11, 2020 at 10:29 am

    If I bought this quad I wouldnโ€™t use the fake acro mode at all aside from that seems pretty cool

  39. Isaac Mills on August 11, 2020 at 10:29 am

    I like that video about the bolt bee though

  40. Radu Campean on August 11, 2020 at 10:30 am

    Hey guys.could you plss make a video about the best cameras on drones under 150$ that are actually available in 2018

  41. BirminghamBlueHeat on August 11, 2020 at 10:32 am

    Btw.. another awesome video from my favorite youtubers!

  42. Melted_Ice_Cream 101 on August 11, 2020 at 10:32 am

    none of the link work ๐Ÿ™

  43. Mobius-1 on August 11, 2020 at 10:33 am

    Im still going to get the h123 I like hudsan,I just think their stuff is really cool. I saw a little teaser or something online a few months ago on the 123 and desided I would buy it as my first race drone and getting the cyclops at the same time, the hickup doesnt concern me because im not that advanced I just want some brushless power to play with and I want a hubsan product I just think their stuff is just alway cool and special. Thanks for the great video guys I loved it.

  44. BirminghamBlueHeat on August 11, 2020 at 10:34 am

    Nate.. I vote that Abby decides whether or not you keep your stach:)

  45. Matthew Brulla on August 11, 2020 at 10:38 am

    Seems like absolute trash. If someone gets this they’re likely wanting to get into the FPV hobby. No ability to tune in the —-flights and that horrible of a tune just will turn people off.

    Wish they’d consult other FPV pilots on the tune.

    Btw, I’m one of those who started on the Bugs 3 thanks to you guys, but has progressed to acro mini/micros/whoops. This kind of quad would have really turned me off to the hobby.

  46. Hypurr FPV on August 11, 2020 at 10:40 am

    The Hubsan H123D is to a race quad like my lawn tractor is to a F1 race car.

  47. Tatyana Barbashin on August 11, 2020 at 10:44 am

    Liars the Drone isn’t 30 40 bucks it is 125 dollars.

  48. hunteranubis on August 11, 2020 at 10:45 am

    hmmm I wanted to get this drone since my starter was the storm and it died today…. most of the other drones I looked at are expensive like 3x the price

  49. Luke Mills on August 11, 2020 at 10:45 am

    I really enjoyed this more comfortable style of videos for some reason,plz do more !

  50. My Pettaway Life on August 11, 2020 at 10:49 am

    I liked the video because I feel they wanted a true opinion before release & you are giving them the feedback they truly need … so I am glad you got it early now they know what more need to be done โœ… …. Sometimes they need a different perspective than staying in the box ๐Ÿ“ฆ
