The Transmitter
It is a very basic transmitter compare with others from Hubsan. It uses  4x AAA size battery. Based on my illustration shown below, it’s pretty easy to understand on getting hold of it.

Hubsan balance charger.

GPS & Altitude hold
With this features, it will lock the quadcopter in current position. Hands off from the transmitter!img_9920-desktop-resolution


  • Very Stable flyer
  • GPS & altitude hold to lock the quadcopter at current position
  • 20 minutes flight time
  • Return to home works! Don’t afraid of lost drone
  • 1080p Full HD camera
  • Fail-safe mode
  • Transmitter has all the telemetry information of the quadcopter’s distance, height, satellites received, direction heading and battery remaining


  • Does not have the FPV and Follow me mode. That’s why cost reduced alot if compared with H501S
  • The HD camera Does not work well in night flying, it does not have night mode

Everyone can fly now! Even for a person like Mrs. CKJ that never fly a drone before, she has no problem in handling the drone at all. Although it is built with powerful brushless motor but with the GPS & altitude hold, it become a tame bull in the sky. Of course you can activate the Expert mode anytime to feel the brushless power without the GPS & Altitude hold. Looking at the features in this drone, price is relatively affordable if compare with other high end drone and that’s why most of the Malaysian thought that > Drone= Expensive toys. Well, now  you know some goodies is really cheap!

** Mrs. CKJ in action ! NO Problem!
