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 more than any other RTF quadcopter on the market today!
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.

Cant be happier with this unit. Received within weeks, very quick and easy to set up. Have spent hours trying to get other quads tuning correct, once I have bought this, I will never go back to the others. So stable in flight and gps modes take the stress out of flying (am much happier once flying knowing I have failsafes). Return to home works seamlessly , as do the other modes. Great fpv platform. Am ordering larger battery, however surprisingly with fpv system and 2200mah battery, on a calm day and mostly in stable mode, am getting in the order of 8-10 mins. So happy with the quality and how well everything works that I am considering buying the pro version for better flight times.
Great Quad! Performs just as described! BEWARE that if you buy the ready to fly model PLEASE make sure you check the motor mounting screws as mine had NO thread locking agent and the screws backed out in flight causing a catastrophic crash. I reported this to Hobbyking along with pics proving my claim...(shows motor hanging off by wires... also shows plastic housing where motor mounting screws go through was completely intact with NO damage...had the motor been ripped off by the crash itself then the motor mounting screws would have pulled through the plastic housing and caused significant damage) All hobbyking would tell me is that they don't cover crash damage under warranty. I write this review so this doesn't happen to the next person who purchases this ready to fly model. Also know that no matter what the cause hobbyking will not cover an item that has been crashed nor will they admit any fault..
come in one piece, but little instruction, no support.
Cannot arm the motor struggle for days in Rcgroups, no result.
Nice, but can get it cheaper in the web
this is my first GPS quadcopter and i love it your cant beat it for the price and spares are widely available, i recomend this to anyone getting into quadcopter and arial photography and FPV
Don't be tempted UK buyers! Mine was shipped via Europe and held by them there until I paid an extra 52 duty. After 2 flights one motor/ESC failed. Contacted support who instructed me to open the quad and check wiring. This I did and sent pic of ESC as requested, then heard nothing for 8 days. Opened a case with Paypal but they declined on the basis that "the product was altered while in my possession". (Because HK told me to)! Finally returned to UK (as instructed) at my cost. They agreed to send a replacement from Hong Kong which would attract another duty fee. Refused to send replacement from the UK as there was a battery included in the box of the UK spec. Would not send with out battery which I didn't need. Would only agree to refund the original amount, not the 10 extra it cost me to return. DON'T DO IT!
flys great ,good first time flyer. but i find the landing gear is not very strong so ordered a spare set ,a great buy
Quadru jsem koupil ve slev a doprava zdarma take super.Jsem s n spokojen,pkn proveden ,vechno sed ,baterka se d dt i vt i kdy trochu vynv.Quadra nebyla pesn a strcela sat.Sta ale mal prava,vythnte gps senzor z quadry a vlote ho do gondoly ke kompasu.Pak bude zafixovn o hodn lep.Foto pikldm do sloky.
Great quad at a great price. If this is your first quad there is a bit of a learning curveand can get frustrating so be ready to read and accept advice.
I have to say that even tho I've read a number of negative reports on this one, that I am perfectly satisfied with mine. It functions properly. Next I plan on adding FPV gear to it. I have never tested the range, but I don't plan on going very far away. Even if I reach the end of it's range, I'm confident that it will land itself gently, or return to launch point. This was a very good buy.
