And, it's unfortunate, because this one actually does have a dual rates switch (click right stick), but the expert mode rates get slowed down by the GPS position hold. So it's like GPS and high rates keep fighting eachother while you try to fly.

And to be more general, I don't understand (yet) the interest fo offer a GPS quad to fly in LOS conditions only ....

Well, I would take that a step further then, and say what is the point of an aerial video quad without FPV.

But, considering how popular they are (i.e. Syma X5C), then adding GPS to that is definitely a good thing for helping create more stable videos.

Make sure the prop isn't screwed on too tightly. I had one motor that wouldn't turn until I loosened the screw a bit.

Seems pretty good... I was testing mine in maybe 7-10mph winds, and it was shaking quite a bit, but holding its position. Wouldn't make for good video, but it was a good test of the GPS.

So Guys,

Does this have similar motors to the JJRC H8/DFD183 as mentioned?.

Not looking to make a negative point, quite the contrary. I have a large stock of them.

First you crash & break the X252, and now this..

GPS as you said will appeal to many beginners who fear losing the aircraft or have had a flyaway, It does seem to work.

Are you doing a photo review of this? I would like to see the inside, and I'm curious what they using - Scisky maybe.

Not the first crash for the X252 ... and I fixed it more or less

But yes, bad luck for the H502E.... sometimes it happens you testing/disassembling each machine


Yes I took all internal photos... based on the board than for the H502S: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=2670200

Thanks for all that work, you do the best job. Wonderful.

Hubsan are releasing many models - It's a bit confusing.
What I really want is 1080p video to uSD card in X4 size micro quad.
Not FPV, just hi-quality video, and I can find nothing ..

JJRC H6c is still my favourite but not really HD.

AFAIK any 1080P micro available .... only 720p ...

Do H502E and H502S have the same receiver board (like H107C/D or H107C+/D+) ?
If you controlled the H502E with the H502S transmitter, what happened?

The soon-to-be-released Dromida Kodo HD claims to be 1080P, but the sample footage I have seen didn't look overly great.
