Opened Packaging the original box of H502S results to be as in photo http://i66.tinypic.com/20gyyw9.jpg
but, once opened, the content was in impeccable conditions.
The packaging includes H502S quadcopter in the first compartment, complete with 610mAh 2S Lipo Battery inserted in its housing, internal GPS module and HD 720p 2MP Camera already assembled, it appears without propellers that must be fitted later.
In the second division we find the transmitter with incorporated an fpv screen of 4,3″, it might seem without antenna but indeed it is mounted inwardly, nice feature as it allows to save space.
The third compartment comprehend two boxes, only one of which includes replacement parts, where we can see: 1 screwdriver and some screws for the mounting and disassembly of the 8 props included, and an usb charger.
In the bottom of the box is instead content an instruction manual that explains the main features of Hubsan H502S and the instructions to configure the transmitter and the drone itself.

3x User Manual (Compass Calibration Manual, Quadcopter Manual and Use Warnings)
I provide you a dectailed review about probuct based on my experience.
I start speaking about quadcopter, it proves at first sight to be very light despite all the components that houses inside, among which we find: GPS module, 720P 2MP HD Camera and the compass, that collaborate in maintaining the drone’s orientation.
It has also an SD input and a mini-usb housing for updates, also present in the radio control.
Below i will speak about various features of that model:
GPS module allows drone to exploit those features that distinguish it from other brushed multirotors, that are: Follow Me, GPS Hold, Return To Home, FailSafe mode… So it have brushed motors but, nevertheless, during the tests it showed to be pretty reactive and able to gain height fastly.
The quadcopter need to hook at least 6 satellites to exploit the GPS module. Now i will continue with drone features related exclusively to GPS.
It proved to be a very interesting feature in outdoor, hooking at least 8-9 satellites it succeeds to hold the position optimally, as also the height, that remains unchanged if not imparts any movement to the throttle stick. Unfortunately it doesn’t hook satellites in indoor, therefore in this case is possible use it only with Altitude Hold without the help of GPS.
Very useful feature, since it allows to drone to activate automatically the Return To Home if the transmitter batteries runs low or if you exceed the range limit of 200 meters.
Follow Me Mode
Feature really appreciated as it allows drone to record our actions and to follow our direction, that is permitted thanks to a GPS module into the transmitter. Once activated the feature pressing the direction stick for 0,5 seconds, it will rotate towards us and will begin to follow us to maintain the framing.
RTH (Return To Home)
It consent to call back the quadcopter to make it land in the same position from which it is taken off with at least 6 satellites hooked, in my case i armed it with 12 hooked satellites. Once activated it began to fly fast enough in my direction to, subsequently, slow down and land. It is accurate, i even had to move to prevent it landing on my head 😀
Now i will speak about other functions not related to GPS
Very suitable mode for newbies, that allows to maintain the same directions, independently from the rotation of the drone.
It proved useful to maintain the position of quadcopter in case of absence of the GPS signal, in outdoor it never happened to me, I think it is specifically designed for indoor.
The transmitter have a built-in FPV LCD screen about 4,3″ that show to the best the view caught from drone camera. It have also a mini-usb housing for updates and another for SD card.
To make the piloting simple the drone will move only if will be imprinted a movement to the throttle stick, otherwise it will hold its position. In addition to the trim buttons it have two switches, which serve to activate respectively GPS and Return To Home feature, two buttons that allows to capture images or videos, and is possible pressing the left stick to activate the Headless Mode and the right stick to enable the renowned mode Follow Me. The transmitter also provides the telemetry relative to height, distance, hooked satellites and battery level.
The included battery is a 2S 610 mAh lipo of 7,4V, that can be charged through the appropriate USB cable. Battery need about 40-50 minutes to charge itself and consent a discreet flight time of 11 minutes, corroborating the duration declared by the company.
