Husban is a veteran in the drone business with a number of these gadgets to their name already.
One of those happen to be the Husban H501S X4 which is a mix of budget and features. Budget in the sense that, it offers quite a bunch of features at the price tag The small sized quadcopter is the definition of a well built long lasting drone with around 20 minutes flight time on a full charge. Also, I would like to point out that the drone does not come with controller batteries, extra rotors or any other extra spare parts.
Hubsan H501S X4 Key Specs and Features

- Headless mode, return home and altitude hold
- FPV, Follow me mode
- 300m range control

Design and Build
Being an affordable quadcopter the Husban H501S X4 is quite a good gadget you acquire with nice gold accents. The drone measures 220mm in size when measures from one 4otor to another diagonally. It happens that the drone is not foldable like the DJI Spark and does not have a designated landing gear rather the nudge beneath the rotor serves that purpose. The backdoor opens to reveal the battery compartment and connector.
In the same fashion as countless other drones, the Husban H501S X4 has a plastic build which helps to minimise the weight. Weighing 410g, the drone is quite compact but comes without a prop guard to protect the rotors. In addition, it has a brushless motor which is certainly the motor of choice in a drone.
The Hubsan H501S X4 is a beginner drone one stacked up with nice features and a good enough range for a pleasurable flight. You could make use of the quadcopter for your personal vlogs, vacation site-seeing tool and so on, however, a professional pursuit would certainly require you to go for a more expensive model. Adife, it boasts of features like Headless mode, one-key return, altitude hold and first-person view on the remote controller.
There is no third party app involved in navigating the Hubsan H501S X4. It is controlled solely by the remote controller from the box. On the controller, there are several buttons and switches tasked with activating a number of different modes. Also, there is a 3.7-inch screen built on the controller for the fpv function with altitude, distance from the remote, GPS coordinates and other data on display. Transmission of FPV footage is at a frequency of 5.8GHz while the controls are done at 2.4GHz to avoid mix up.
Image and Video
On paper the Husban H501S X4 appears to be of great quality up to a full HD+ resolution in recording. However, it appears more or less washed out and without colour plus there is no gimbal or images stabilization. On the other hand, all of this can be stacked up to the low price tag of the drone. The camera is also fixed and there is no way of moving it during flight and all the images and videos are stored on a microSD card inserted into the drone.
Husban H501S X4 Pricing and Availability
