Nice, but definitely OT.

How do you activate this mode on the controller?

You press the right stick if I remember correctly.

I can't seem to get any RX voltage showing on the TX and arming doesn't work so presume I have no bind. Either one on first doesn't seem to change that either.

I never had any issues with the H501S but none of the videos out mention any issues so i'm guessing it's supposed to give you rx voltage even before compass calibration.

I also don;t get the 'set compass 1' as the manual suggests. Any tips?
Full battery in both

Do the binding procedure as shown in the guide, page 6.

Thanks, yeah I was reading that it said already bound at the factory and then getting hooked up on calibrations. All bound with that method.

Seems to fly exactly like the H501S but much nicer feeling sticks to fly with and expert mode doesn't climb to oblivion with no stick inputs which is a step forward. Follow me mode I won't miss but not being able to see from the camera so will be adding FPV gear.

How are you adding fpv capabilities to the H501c?
I'm very interested.

Probably have a little play with the EF-01 first but considering fitting something 600mw internally and adding an antenna mount somewhere, it can handle the weight but if doing any mods I want some upltilt too as this is useless for flying low which I love to do more than flying way up high.

First I will just stick a 1s lipo to the quad but you could also cut file a notch in the battery door and run a cable out from the balance connector or even open here right up and feed one out through the roof or nose.

Transmitter


There is plug for external antenna, but no good place for it.
E: there is same cameraboard as H501S (in quad), but without 5.8G chip, just only empty place for it.

Maybe next week range test...

Nice find.

One of these looks like it would fit in that central raised section although i'd remove that central lug and mount it central.

Can you please post photos of it?

I wonder why Hubsan doesn't create such model with cheap transmitter but with video transmission, so we can just add some googles or headset and fly with fpv.

So, I'm thinking to buy this model and add video transmitter.. Interesting is anyone already experimented with this..

those are RTF package. no one will buy a model with cheap transmitter and video transmission. they are not in the business of radio equipment.

Yea, this - http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Hubsa...ra-370252.html

And it's very interesting, can in empty space placed something like this http://www.banggood.com/FX-MM213TL-5...p-1045770.html

Anyone thinking about the same? Just add some cheap fpv googles and fly!
