Gone are the days of amateur poorly structured drones. Professional standard drones are the latest trend in the world of remote-controlled aerial vehicles. It is oblivious of the level of flying experience (beginner to expert) one has.
The Hubsan H501S X4 RC quadcopter drone is delivered in a compact package weighing 1.7 kg and measuring 34 cm long, 15 cm high and 32 cm wide. The package contains the quadcopter, a transmitter, a battery, a charger and four propeller blades. The drone comes in golden black colour. The drone itself weighs just 410 g with the battery available.
It comes with an FPV 1080P fixed camera that captures both videos and pictures in High definition. It has a multi-function FPV remote controller that captures 5.8G real-time video transmitted to its 4.3 inch LCD screen display. The four brushless motors are powerful and durable. The propellers are precise and safe for flights as they are self-tightening. The 2700mAh lithium polymer quadcopter battery weighs a mere 105g providing 7.4V for 15 to 20 minutes of the drone’s flight time. It has a charging time of about 150 minutes.
The drone has a maximum flight radius of up to 500 meters wirelessly controlled by a frequency of 2.4G, channel 4CH. It has a six-axis gyro for stability and orientation, but it also comes with a headless mode. It supports an onboard memory card of up to 32 GB of storage.
It has a built-in universal version GPS for accurate and precise positioning and for the advanced follower mode. The brushless motors are both powerful but also dynamic. The drone can be used both outdoors as well as indoors. For the outdoor flying, a follow me function is most pleasant to focus on your activities and capture one’s adventures. The one key return function is also both practical and safe as the built-in GPS initiates an automatic return function that activates s a failsafe mode once the connection is lost from the controller. The drone’s flight control automatically navigates the drone to turn to ‘home’ and land.
A fail-safe mode that navigates the drone home once the connection is lost is very important as it guarantees against your drone wandering away. A flight time of 15 to 20 minutes is advanced as compared to other drones.
The 1.5V AA transmitter batteries, four in number are regrettably not included in the package, but one can buy them cheaply elsewhere.
This RC quadcopter is surely a must buy for the drone lovers considering its great features. At a price of $239.99, the drone gives value for money.
