Are you able to see the quad that far away?

No, it went out of sight at about 350 meters. IŽve chosen a path where nothing could be harmed, we have a lot open fields here. A friend of mine was waiting at 1000 meters. The 501C shows telemetry information on the transmitter, so I just had to stick on that course.
My friend phoned me that the quad passed near him, so I hit RTH at 9 mins flighttime.

At RTH the quad was facing backwards.

@bob_a_builder the transmitter of the 501S version can read out the firmware version.


Cheers

Do you have headless mode on the new one?
My previous one flew backwards in RTH too

No sign of headless mode ( in either one I've had)

I updated the firmware on my 501S to FC 1.1.36, RX 1.2.20 and TX 1.1.9. Today was the first time the quad was facing in the forward direction when rth, and now the circling mode is enabled. I wish there will be an update for the 501C as well, because the firmware is awesome and stable. I mailed Hubsan support if the 501C can run the 1.1.36 firmware as well. IŽkeep you updated on this.

The transmitter H907A lacks the headless mode. I can activate it using the 501S controller.

Circling mode? Is that orbit mode?

Problem recording


Hello, I am new in the forum, wish you all the best! I have a H501C. When it records after some minutes the recording stops without my approval. When I look into the microsd card, two .mov files are produced, one playable .mov file and a smaller .mov file that is not playable.

What is wrong? Can you help me?

What is the brand name of the SD card are you using? And what class is it rated at?

Atleast Class 10 and minium 8GB. I have MIXZA TOHAOLL 8GB 1U Micro SD Memory Card.

Any experiense H501C with gimbal? I just ordered 163g 2axis Brushless Gimbal 28,04€ (Free Shipping)
I think that flytime will be about 10min, but let see...

I use a 4gb Sandisk, don't think it's a class 10 either. Works well

I have a question, is the 501c the same as the 501s other than GPS? The reason I'm asking is would it be possible to flash the Russian hacked firmware to the 501c so that you would not have to calibrate the compass every time. I'm not interested in orbit mode or follow me modes.

The camera is the same without the transmitter module for FPV that the 501s has.

Yes they share many parts. But I don't know if the fc board is the same and if it could be flashed with the 501s firmware that only requires compass calibration once unless you fly from a different location.

Send a PM to Annegottagun to confirm. She is the Hubsan rep on these boards.
