This RC plane has FPV camera, stabilization system, brushless motor, GPS, and return to home capability. Find it here

Pros
– Brushless motors.
– 720p camera includes microSD card recording and 5.8Ghz FPV transmitter. Video can be viewed on optional HS001 Hubsan FPV monitor screen, or on your 5.8Ghz FPV racing goggles.
– Auto stabilization and fixed high (altitude hold) system.
– GPS with return to home capability.
– Bright orientation LEDs on the bottom of the wings.
– Beeper and LED lights flash on LVC low battery warning.
– 7.6V 480mah LiHV battery.
– 300 meter range.

Cons
– Very fast and skittish little plane. Not recommended for beginner fliers.
– When return to home is activated with GPS lock, the plane will circle and climb to 50 meters before heading back to its takeoff position. But if the plane is launched without achieving GPS satellite positioning lock, it will instead climb to 50 meters and will circle at the position where it was at when RTH was activated.
– Fixed high altitude hold seems to be problematic. My plane kept wanting to descend after takeoff. Increasing throttle did not seem to help it climb. To keep it in the air I had to gradually increase elevator while increasing throttle.
– No telemetry is available when you use your own goggles. There is no visual cue to alert you that the plane has sufficient satellites for GPS positioning.
– Land immediately on LVC low battery warning. If you push it past those warnings, the motor will stop to protect the battery. This plane does not glide very well with the motor stopped (very nose heavy), and will likely nose in.

    1. Congratulations. You were the first to say First. You win a shoutout in a future QC101 video. Again, congratulations!

  1. thanks for posting. here are some things to consider. overall design is POOR but visually interesting. when flying at greater airspeeds, the cross-section of the fuselage forward of the prop, is Deflecting air away from the prop; starved prop. All material Directly aft of the prop is SPOILING thrust air And producing vectors. it is probable that hubsan has used a more-or-less scale main wing profile. if ANYONE thinks the f22 was designed to fly SLOWLY. it wasn’t. Every fighter ever designed had a ‘fast’ wing. conclusion: this model is (probably) short on lift, high on wing loading, heavy for its size and must be flown Fast, at all times. if anyone thinks that tailerons provide adequate control authority, they are mistaken. no one with any common sense would install a camera like THAT. cheers googletranslate

  2. Who else would be singing “highway to the danger zone” while flying this? That hubsan looks clean and sleek. Might be fun to fly around when doing my waterfall videos inbetween mavic packs.

  3. Was really looking forwards to this one, but it looks like it’s quite a handful. Very interesting, but a bit too much for me.

  4. Should have used the scrren! I have a pet peeve too when some of you do a return to home and you don’t follow through to see it land. I can’t stand that! But if the screen holds the telemetry you should definitely use it. No idea why you didn’t.

    1. And this is available in two versions. This was the basic version without screen (you can use your own goggles instead). But there is a second advanced version with the monitor screen that costs $50 more.

    1. I never said the reviewer sucks but that is a matter of opinion really. I was disappointed because we couldn’t see the telemetry and see what happens with the return to home had the satellites been picked up.

  5. Got mine 4-5 days ago but haven’t been able to fly it yet because of rain.
    Mine came with some slight damage at the shoulders of the wings. Nothing that will prevent flight, but still annoying that it came with defects.

  6. I reckon you are right about the RTH problem. I’ve seen Hubsan planes fail to set a home-point for various reasons including not having enough satellites at take-off. Looking at the way it actually flies it’s not the best I’ve seen (but not the worst either) and, at the price, I’m not sure it would appeal to me. That said, there will be some who love the concept and will want it..
    This was, imo, a very fair review of the plane but I would like to see further flights

  7. Looks like the only way to fly this plane is with a green screen. Come on Hubsan!! I thought you were better than this..
