Check out this Hubsan H502E GPS Drone video!I really REALLY like this little quadcopter. So here’s another review of it 😉 This GPS equipped camera quadcopter may very well be the best starter drone for those interested in pursuing an interest in aerial video. At around $100, it is also currently the best bang for your buck in drone capabilities with a 720p HD camera, GPS, altitude hold, position hold, and real no-kidding return to home/landing capability (none of that “one key return” baloney) Very non-intrusive. Should be able to fly this most places without being hassled by authorities or disturbing your neighbors.- Extremely easy to fly. Just ensure sufficient satellites are locked on (at least 6) before taking off. Also recommend checking hover stability for a few seconds before venturing off into the wild blue yonder.

If toilet bowl hover noted, land and redo compass calibration.- Will automatically fly back and land at its takeoff point upon activation of the return to home switch, or automatically if the quadcopter loses signal from the transmitter such as from flying out of range, from electrical interference, or if the transmitter is turned off (but don’t deliberately turn off the transmitter to test this).- Telemetry information available on controller includes range, altitude, heading, and remaining battery power (simple bar graph for battery power).- Includes 2MP still pictures, 720p HD video camera.- Pretty good flight time at about 13 minutes for the “E” version (slightly less on the “S” follow me version).- 150 grams weight.
Does not require FAA registration.Cons- Although with very advanced features, the quadcopter also is equipped with brushed motors to minimize cost. You may need to replace a motor some day. However, as this quad also limits speed and does not have flip capability, motor durability may be greater as compared to other similar toy grade quadcopters.- This quad is strictly for aerial video. Its GPS limits its speed and maneuvers to maintain stable gentle flying. As such, this is no “sport” quadcopter, and does not even come with a flip button (On the flip side, this is good for motor longevity ;-)-
