This is the Follow Me & GPS Test for the Hubsan H501S X4 GPS FPV Drone Quadcopter Advanced Version.

Follow Me & GPS Test - Hubsan H501S X4 GPS FPV Drone With 1080p HD Camera (8 min 3 sec)

It has a 1080p HD Camera that performs well in well lit conditions, I demonstrate the Follow Me function, and I test the GPS function in some choppy wind.

This Unboxing and Review is for the Red, Green, & White Wireless Navigation Light Kit I got from Banggood.com.

Unboxing & Review - Red, Green, & White Wireless Navigation Light Kit (4 min 11 sec)

Here are my LED Light Kit review notes:
