The Hubsan X4 H502S quadcopter is equipped with collector-type motors, the potential of which is quite enough, given the fact that the quadcopter is intended primarily for beginners.
In the test for a quad with brushed motors, the Hubsan X4 H502S showed good dynamics, provided there was no wind (it likes complete calm). In the “GPS” mode, the drone has an inherent smoothness. But, everything changes when you turn off the GPS and switch to the “Manual” mode. The quad noticeably comes to life and shows good flight characteristics.
- You should not expect racing performance from him, only beginners will fully appreciate it.
- If in the “Manual” mode the throttle stick is removed to zero, then the quadcopter motors do not turn off.
- Calibration must be carried out before each flight.
All functions and modes (Headless/Follow me/Manual mode/Return to remote control/Altitude hold function) worked flawlessly. In practice, the flight range at an altitude of 100 meters was 270 meters (in field conditions). Further, up to 300 meters, the quad was controlled, but with a short-term, multiple loss of connection and with a noticeable deterioration in the response to the movement of the sticks.
To increase the range of FPV flight, you can bring the antennas (2.4GHz / 5.8GHz) built into the remote control case outside.
Hubsan X4 H502S is equipped with a built-in HD (720p) photo / video camera. The quality of shooting is at the level of the golden mean. The picture in photo / video mode is readable under optimal lighting conditions. When outputting to a diagonal of more than 4.3 inches, a significant loss in image quality is noticeable.
Also, slowdown of the video on the display of the equipment was noticed (the quality of the filling of the control equipment affects). The picture twitched, which caused discomfort at the time of the flight. When viewing the recorded video on a PC, this was no longer observed.
The Hubsan X4 H502S quadcopter is equipped with a 2S 7.4V 610mAh 4.5Wh 15C lithium polymer battery. The potential (with a working camera) is enough for 10-12 minutes of flight in the “GPS” mode. In the “Manual” mode about 8 minutes. From the standard charger, the battery is charged for 1 hour 40 minutes.
The Hubsan X4 H502S quadcopter comes with the classic “5.8G FPV2 Standard” equipment with a built-in 4.3-inch LCD monitor and a GPS module. In practice, in an interference-free area, provides an FPV removal distance of up to 270 meters. Power is supplied by 4 AA batteries.
On various Internet trading platforms, the average price for the Hubsan X4 H502S quadcopter is $120.
