Product Information


Auto Return Home Thanks to a GPS-backed navigation system, the drone is able to remember its "home," or takeoff, point. If connection is lost with the transmitter, Failsafe Mode will engage, causing the quadcopter to automatically return to the home point and land. You can also manually trigger Failsafe Mode via a switch on the transmitter.

Follow Me Mode In this mode, the drone will lock onto the position of the transmitter and track it. This is extremely beneficial when recording a moving subject that would be tricky to follow manually.

Altitude Mode In this mode, based on readings from a barometer, the drone will maintain a fixed altitude. Horizontal movement, as well as rotation (yaw), will still be enabled.

Headless Mode - Intuitive Orientation In this mode, there is no longer a defined "nose" and "tail." Instead, the aircraft always moves relative to the pilot – pressing forward moves forward, pressing left moves left, and so on. This keeps flying more intuitive, especially for beginner pilots.

FPV Transmitter with 4.3" Screen On the transmitter, you will find a 4.3 LCD screen that allows you to monitor real-time video from the FPV camera and will display vital flight telemetry data to keep you apprised of what is happening in the air. A 5.8 GHz link is used for the video signal, while control operates on 2.4 GHz to avoid cross interference.

Brushless Motors Brushless motors provide better performance than their brushed counterparts. In addition, propeller attachment is self-tightening for additional security.

Great Product
Bought this quad as a beginner's guide to the hobby. I've tried many, and this one is the easiest to figure out. Drop sensitivity to 60%, and you can fly in the backyard. Put sensitivity to 100%, and you'll need a little larger area. When you're ready for speed, turn off GPS Mode, and go into Altitude Hold Mode.

Upgrade the firmware to allow you to change the lights to Off/Flashing/Always On. Always On at night is creepy like a UFO. I don't know how Hubsan does it, but the GPS quality is amazing. Compared to similar (price/size) quads, this one will hover in place forever. Others tend to drift and toilet bowl. Even if you choose to move up one day, you'll keep this one. Just don't overfly it on a windy day.

My only suggestions would be on the controller. Put a switch on the controller to turn off the video when flying LOS. Eats through AA batteries like crazy. There's a mod kit for sale to make both the antennas external, giving you greater range.

The best feature is the memory card goes in the quad itself, and not the controller. You get good pictures, and decent video, without all the transmission static you get when the recording is done on the controller.

I just hope part continue to be readily available with the release(s) of the new products.

Why do i need to updare the h501s firmware and what does it do?
You do not need to update the FW. Our Quadcopters ship with the latest FW installed.

My quad goes straight up when I push the right switch up to return home. What am I doing wrong and should I have the god switch up all the time? Thank
Before you flight and even before you turn the motors on the quad needs to record the home position, which happens with no less than 6 satellites. When the RTH function is activated below the threshold altitude of 30 m the quad will attempt to gain that altitude and then perform RTH.

Can I use WD40 to get the Motor Screws out? My son broke an arm and I ordered a replacement shell, but cannot get the screws loose from the motors.
Make sure you use the correct screw head as you can strip the screw, which may complicate changing the motors. DO NOT use wd40 or any other oil that can posibbly drip to the motors.
