For those in the RC drone hobby, it is obvious that trying out your flight skills is one of the basic ones you have to master, and you probably did so on the Hubsan X4, which enjoys a near-cult status for hobbyists.
The Hubsan X4 “early birds” were able to stun enthusiasts with their great features and flight modes, described as the “smallest drone” or “nano-quadcopter,” the drone has created its fair share of reviews from users.
As it is with different models, changes are bound to happen, and today, there are three different models to look into: the Hubsan X4 H501C, the Hubsan X4 H502S, and the Hubsan X4 H502E.

Hubsan X4 H502E: Brushed RC Drone
The new model of the Hubsan family is a good buy for those who are interested in something easy to fly and has power. Th quadcopter’s dimensions and weight of about 140–147g with the battery can help it fly for 10–12 minutes, and charges for 30–40 minutes. The flight radius about 200m with possibilities of an increment of reduction of 15m, depending on the conditions. The transmitter batteries, which are usually excluded from the package are AAA batteries.
The Hubsan X4 H502E comes with a headless flight mode, altitude hold mode, 6-axis gyro stability system, and one key return function. The Hubsan X4 H502E happens to be one of the few models that come with GPS trackers, which can help assist in features such as altitude hold and return to home.
The price? $118.99.
Hubsan X4 H501C: Brushless RC Drone
This RTF RC quadcopter drone has an altitude hold mode, 2.4GHz frequency, GPS, and a 1080p camera help give users great pictures and videos from the sky.
It has a 7.4 V, 2700 mAh battery and, when fully charged, gives the quadcopter a flight time of 20 minutes, making it similar to the H502E. What makes it different, however, is that it has brushless motors, which offer a bump in performance. Other features include headless mode function, and a key return function so that it can find its way home. Of course, as it is with drones, home and hover functions are also part of the design specifications.
The new product goes for $206.50.
Hubsan X4 H502S: 5.8GHz FPV RC Drone
With FPV function, this RTF Quadcopter is set for release soon. For $219.99, the quadcopter drone with the same dimensions as the Hubsan X4 H502E promises great user experience. Designed to work with a 7.4V 2S 610mAh Li-Po Battery weighing 35 g, which can be charged to full capacity after 30–40 minutes, the gadget has a flight time of 12–13 minutes and flight radius of about 200 meters. It has a 4.3-inch LDC with 480 × 272, displaying video transmissions. Like the other models, it has a headless flight mode, Follow Me functions, automatic calibration, and failsafe mode.
Whatever you wish to do with these drones, there will be something in it for you. All Hubsan models come with transmitters, and everything is set in a complete package—the quadcopter, transmitter, and batteries, and can be procured from Web sites or vendors, and shipped to your registered address.
