Review Holy Stone HS300 Quadcopter Drone with Camera

Welcome fellow drone enthusiasts! Once more we have the opportunity to present to our readers a review of one of the best drones. Today we will analyze a relatively new product from the Holy Stone, one of the leading manufacturers of beginner and intermediate drones. This US company is renowned for its quality, uniqueness and competitive prices whose projects are constantly improving the industries boundaries. The quadcopter Holy Stone HS300 is, definitely, the best choice for drones with the camera and is suitable for beginners with some or no experience in drone flying but also for some less demanding advanced pilots.

There are many additional features from Holy Stone’s quadcopter HS300 which will definitely hook potential buyers. Besides HD camera, more features such as one key landing, headless mode, speed control, 360°stunt, 6 axis gyro, emergency stop and low voltage protection.The most important feature is definitely automatic altitude hold which is a powerful air pressure altitude function and allows HS300’s pilots to release the throttle stick and the quadcopter will keep hovering in the air at the current desired height. This feature is great for taking high-quality steady videos and pictures. One key landing which HS300 quadcopter pilots can use is amazing for safer landings which greatly reduces the amount of crashes at this point of flying this quadcopter. There are also the headless mode for better control in the air, 6-axis gyro for greater flight stabilization, low battery alarm and many of LED lights to make HS300 more visible by its pilot in the air.The controller is nice looking, responsive and easy to handle. All these features are great in helping first-time pilots and they can enjoy smooth design with stable and responsive functions which this quadcopter has and is easy to control and maneuver. HS300 quadcopter drone, unfortunately, does not possess the FPV and GPS technology, but these features are not necessary for beginner pilots.

The Holy Stone HS300 can deliver from 8-12 minutes when properly charged and you have two 7.4Volts, 2000mAh, Li-Po (14.8Wh)batteries in the bundle included which is amazing, when considering the fact that it takes truly some time to fully charge the battery (around 200 minutes) and this battery life is much better than many other quadcopters. HS300 quadcopter has a control distance of 150m and has very powerful engines (2.4GHz). Although the flight time always depends on weather conditions, HS300 has shown remarkable performances, with its 6-axis gyro and 2.4GHz motor, regarding controlling and flight stability even in windy conditions due to its design and construction. Although this quadcopter is big it is very powerful and fast.

Remote Control
The drone controller resembles a typical RC controller, but the controller itself is actually more simple than one might think. It has a typical box construction with very basic controls. On the top of the controller, from left to right, are a take photo and speed control bumper, an antenna, and a take video and 3D flip bumper.

On the face of the controller, going left to right, there is a left/ right trim control, a power button, and a forward/backward trim controller. Underneath the main set of controls are another set of fine-tuning movement controls on each side.

Under these controls, there are a central readout and a circular set of controls for specific movements. The circular buttons include a headless mode button, a one-touch landing button, a return button, and an emergency stop button.
