Get in the action with the Quanum Nova, the Ready to Fly GPS drone that ticks all the right boxes. Don't let the low price fool you, this machine is capable of quite a lot.
Boasting full GPS functionality such as position holding, return to home and even full GPS waypoint flying, this is a professional level multi-rotor aircraft in an easy to use, ready to fly package that anyone can fly. The Quanum Nova was developed with one primary goal in mind - providing our customers with a simple, user friendly drone capable of proffessional level flight performance. This goal has been realized. Now you have the perfect machine for carrying your GoPro or other similar sized action cameras for shooting awesome aerial video!
When it comes to ease of use, the Nova is at the top of the list. Arriving fully tuned and setup, you simply need to install the landing gear and props, charge the battery and fly. It's that easy. For more advanced users or as your skills progress, you can connect the Nova to MAVLink compatible software such as Mission Planner or others, allowing access to a whole host of programming options including selectable flight modes, GPS waypoint functionality, advanced tuning and so much more!
The Nova features a beautifully molded plastic body which not only offers good looks, it provides durability and is extremely light weight. The lower body shell of the Nova integrates bright LED lights, green in the front arms and red in the rear, making orientation easy in both day and night flying. Additionally, there are two large status indicator LEDs at the rear which show the current status, such as GPS signal and battery condition.
Aerial video is where it's at and the Nova is just the model for it. The Nova is directly compatible with our Quanum Q-2D brushless GoPro gimbal, providing direct fit mounting. Simply bolt-on the Q-2D and connect it to the integrated gimbal control plugs on the bottom of the Nova. The on-board connections provide power, tilt and roll functions for the Q-2D gimbal. There is also a very convenient mini USB connection for connecting the Nova to your PC.
Once you've compared the features, functionality and flight performance of all the Ready to Fly quadcopters on the market today, you will see that a clear winner has emerged...the Quanum Nova.

My quad tend to tilt forward on manual mode. It also flew away in forward direction whenever I switch to manual mode. It works fine on stable mode.
Can anyone help to resolve this issue.Good quad for a good price.
Unfortunately...my Quanum Nona is Quanum No...more
I flew over the weekend. (had the quad now for about 18 months) At one point the quad just did not respond to the radio and started to return to home - really a good feature and used RTH many times. But I could not get the quad to respond to the radio again - I tried everything enven eventually switching off/on the radio. I suspect the Radio power switch to have glitched and broke the connection. The quad came back to home location but stayed in a hover at about 15m (the set safe hight) It hovered there until the battery was to low to sustain flight in it came down in an uncontrolled power crash - you could not even try to catcht it - Believe me I wanted to and knew I had to. But with 4 swinging props hit the ground hard.
I love this drone all functions work properly an d it is super fun to fly. The batteries last quite well and the GPS functions perfectly. Add the gimbal and a camera and this thing rocks. I would suggest this to anyone looking for a quality drone.Nice, but can get it cheaper in the web.The good news is I ordered one of these five days ago. It arrived today. Bad news is I receiver four props, all the same direction.Excellent (Quanum Nova FPV GPS Waypoint QuadCopter (Mode 2) (Ready to Fly)). A weak spot in the plastic where it Is located GPS. in a collision with an object. plastic cracking on the perimeter mounting plate. It is treated with glue "moment" and melting. The whole body durable. Easily customizable Quanum Nova. Instructions included. the average flight time to the battery 2700, a 15-minute flight. I recommend.this is my first quad and I can say that it is really easy to fly .
assemble it, charge the battery and fly .
no problem at all , no calibration , no settings , everything works perfectly right out of the box!
be careful when you have it upside down and mount the landing gear , it rests on the GPS domes that break easily , mine did .Very stable in a flight. It is very easy to control it. It seems that everyone who never operated it before can do it without any problems. Disarm a quadrocopter in GPS Hold mode and it will be guaranteed that it will be disarmed only if enough quantity of satellites are received and HDOP is good enough. But anyway you can disarm motors always in Manual mode without getting good HDOP or a quantity of received satellites.
You can also change max allowed ANGLE via Mission Planner from 22 degree to 30-35 in order to allow a quadrocopter to more effectively struggle with a wind in windy wheather.This is a fantastic drone. It is very easy to fly and does everything as advertised and then some. I watched videos on YouTube and learned how to use Mission Planner to load the latest Firmware and calibrate the compass and accelerometer. First flight went perfect and all of the great functions worked perfectly. I then set up a mission using Mission Planner and took it to the field to see how it would work. I followed the planned mission perfectly going to four different waypoints, changing altitude and then returning to launch to land. I was so please with this first experience with a drone that I ordered a second one from HobbyKing while they were still on sale and free shipping. If you are interested in an easy to fly drone with lots of features this is the one for you.Recently purchased this from HobbyKing. Upon arrival I followed instructions to bind to transmitter with no success. Returned to HobbyKing and they determined that the transmitter was defective. In correspondence with customer support, they agreed to refund return shipping and now refuse to do so. What looked like a good deal is turning out to not be so good. Never had issues when dealing with Hobbyking in the past, they use to be great to deal with... what's changed?
