EC2 plugs for for the battery,i say no more about the rest looks like a big let down.

I think that at this price range it's a good Drone to start this hobby.
I'm not looking 4 a racer or a fpv drone !
But a follow me ! 4 when I'm walking with the dogs.

And the most important thing !
I understand it's doesn't need a GPS dance when I change battery !

Hubsan H501M X4 Air Basic Edition (1 min 31 sec)


Even with Waypoint, Point of interest & Follow me, this Hubsan H501M is marginally acceptable with its price being set. However, the 720P shaking video is simply below 1080P standard.

So why disappointed ? Hullken ?

And what is wrong with the EC2 ? Merch ?

I was dissapointed with the camera quality. I knew it was 720p, but there is no reason a lower resolution camera can't look alot better than that.

Otherwise the quad is probably fine and just like the other H501 models.

I would go with the XT60 plugs personal preference,range is not that great and the 720p camera plus for the price you could pick up a much better quad.

.....such as?

Reqmts (present in this model):

waypoints
follow me
circle
auto launch and home
brushless
decent (upgradeable) duration
Hubsan Watch option (allows Quad to track a moving person / object with watch onboard (eg another r/c model)
Camera is poor perhaps, but ok for FPV to 400 metres?
Sufficient power to add a stripped down 4k Firefly Q6 or similar for quality flight recording

What other Quads offer this on a similar budget (willing to pay up to 150 landed)

How does it compare with other 501, Bugs etc?

Like to place an order if nothing better available within this budget (the 501M, Tx and GPS Watch fall within the max limit)

Without the fancy App functions the Bugs B2W is what i would choose,don't forget you are using a bluetooth controller that connects to your phone to fly which drains alot of battery on your phone with the bugs you get a much better controller,persenol preference like i said.

tempting but no waypoints - also lot of conflicting info on Hub tx being 2.4 / bluetooth/wi-fi - Hubsan told me tx is 2.4 and only FPV is wi-fi, whilst reviewers reckon it is isnt 2.4

going to look up the other 501 model specs...

sooo what do you think?

Have u seen the gps watch controller?

be nice when someone range tests the fpv and general flying b y Hubs physical remote and GPS Watch (which appears to be deliberately hidden from the world..

There is a lot of confusion over realistic line of sight range - cant be as bad as claimed surely
