This is the newer model with the 720p camera.

As recommended by others who had gotten into flying drones before me, I chose the Hubsan X4 H107c as my first beginner drone in order to get my feet wet and learn how to pilot.
As a complete beginner who had never flown a drone before, I went through 4 or 5 battery charges before I started getting used to the controls and could fine tune my movements more accurately. 

As the Hubsan is quite small, it tends to drift around easily, and it takes a bit of work with the controls to get it to hover in place. While this probably makes it harder to fly than a larger drone, I'm sure it's making me a better pilot! In the meantime, flying with the propellor guard on is a must. In fact, on my first flight out of the box, I crashed it into everything in sight, so I would recommend putting the prop guard on as the first step for any new owner. Having said that, this quadcopter is resilient and has already handled many collisions without malfunctioning.
