Please excuse my bad flying as I’m a beginner flying quads and the H501S doesn’t have any video stabilizations notworthy.gif notworthy.gif notworthy.gif 

Pros:
• Stable flyer
• Very good follow me mode
• Stable 1080p camera
• 2km range
• 20 minutes flight time
• Return to home works!

Cons:
 Might disarm the H501S during flight by accident Update: new firmware update for the H501S actually requires you to pull down on both sticks then outwards then only can arm and disarm.
