As with any series of drones, evolutions are inevitable. In this post we will introduce you to the new Hubsan X4 models: the Hubsan X4 H501C, the Hubsan X4 H502S and the Hubsan X4 H502E.
Hubsan X4 H502E: Brushed Drone
This new model from the Hubsan family seems to be a good buy for anyone interested in something easy to fly, but at the same time powerful.
This quadricopter has dimensions of 165 x 165 x 60 mm and has a weight of about 140-147g when the battery is added. The battery used is the Li-Po 7.4V 2S 610mAh, and weighs about 35g. The flight time for this drone is between 10-12 minutes and takes about 30-40 minutes to recharge.
The radius of flight is about 200m with possibilities of an increase of 15m, depending on the weather conditions. The control batteries, which usually do not come included in the package, are AAA batteries.
The Hubsan X4 H502E also comes with headless flight mode, altitude control, stability system and a return to home function.
That said, what is special about the Hubsan X4 H502E is that it is one of the few Hubsan drones that come with GPS, this helps a lot in other features like hold altitude and return to home.
Hubsan X4 H501C: Brushless Drone
This drone is equipped with altitude hold mode, 2.4 GHz frequency, GPS, and a 1080p camera to allow users to take great photos and aerial videos.
It uses a Li-Po battery 7.4V 2700mAh and when fully charged, this gives the quadricopter a flying time of approximately 20 minutes. All this makes the H501C look very similar to the H502E, but what’s different here is that the H501C has brushless motors, which means it delivers better flight performance than the H502E.
Other features include the headless mode function, a return to home function so the drone can find its way home and the typical floating functions are also part of its specifications.
Hubsan X4 H502S: FPV Drone
With FPV function, this quad was released recently. This 2.4G, 4CH drone with exact dimensions of the Hubsan X4 H502E promises users a great experience.
Designed to work with a Li-Po battery 7.4V 2S 610mAh of 35g, it can be recharged at full capacity after about 30-40 minutes. This drone has a flight time of between 12-13 minutes, and radius of flight of About 200m.
It also has a 4.3-inch LCD with 480 × 272 resolution in the control, which displays a FPV video feed (transmitted at 5.8GHz). Like the drones mentioned above, it has headless flight mode, follow me function, auto calibration and failsafe mode.
