I Love the Hubsan X4
If you follow my blog, you know I am a fan of the Hubsan X4 as the perfect first drone / quadcopter to learn on but it also has another use at my house - it is my dog exerciser. Flying this in my small yard while my 70 pound dog chases after it is a great way to keep my line of sight flying skills sharp!
If you are thinking about getting into drone photography, the Hubsan is a great place to start. People ask me all the time how to get started and this is always my recommendation. Having good line of sight RC skills is an important part of aerial photography so make sure you have a good practice quad like the Hubsan X4 to boost your confidence to fly safely. This thing is also the coolest toy you can buy under $50!! If you want to get the GoPro Fetch Dog Harness, you can get it here.
Making the Video
We had fun making this video, I crashed it way more than normal but that makes for a more entertaining video. A new Hubsan is already on the way so I figured it was worth it. The one I have now has lasted forever, it is amazing it still flies! I have been trying to train Benny to be more gentle with it when he shoots it down, so maybe that is actually working.
