Hubsan H501S X4 FPV Quadcopter with Camera (1080P)
The Hubsan H501S X4 FPV Quadcopter with Camera is brushless, it has GPS features and a lot of other interesting features. Right now you can but it about $205 to $268 and you can choose between the standard version and the professional version. So this is a more semi-professional budget drone, designed for those who want to take some quality footage and use it.

The highlight of this quad is the Follow-Me feature that can be extremely useful, depending on what you want to do and it also has a decent flight time of 20 minutes. At this price, you are unlikely to find a better drone with the same features.
The build quality is also a big plus for the H501S X4, it has brushless motors and a integrated 4.3 inches screen in the RC. The interesting thing is that the camera that comes with the drone is integrated, but if you really want, there is an anti-vibration camera mount on the market and it will work with the GoPro or Xiaomi Yi Sports action cameras. Pretty nice that you have some options even if the vanilla camera is integrated.
The camera is actually good, it can take some awesome pictures and I really see no reason to replace it through the above mentioned method. You can shoot videos at 1080p and they look quite smooth.
Transmitter and FPV
The transmitter comes with a integrated 5.8 Ghz FPV system in order to make the real time image transmission work. The FPV transmission works at around 300 meters but there actually are some tweaks that can make it work even further at around 1200 meters. But that requires you to not be in a crowded area, so the signal won’t get lost. On the FPV screen you can see all the information that is important, like the battery status, the mode in which you fly and other good informations.
Great Automatic Return to Home and Failsafe Feature
The Husban H501S X4 has GPS and if you manage to lose the connection from the RC to the drone, it will automatically go into “failsafe mode” and it will use the GPS to go back home and land safely. This is especially good if you fly your quad in a crowded zone and there you can have some problems with the connection.
The Hubsan H501S X4 FPV Quadcopter with Camera is a well built drone and it has a decent price for what it offers. If you are a semi-professional user, then you can buy it without any hesitation, because this drone also offers some quality. Quality combined with the price and features makes it one of the best drone options for most people.
