Holy Stone HS200 FPV RC Drone, CHRISTMAS PRESENT about to turn bad. Need HELP asap!

I did a large amount of analysis on drones, and i’ve discovered that we are in the 3rd era of starter drones with what is out there out there featurewise. It applied to be that a camera, fpv (very first particular person see), vehicle return, headless solution, and car get started were all for drones fetching earlier mentioned $250. With this toddler you get most of the best attributes for considerably less than $90-one hundred. So i went to their web-site, and asked them what is the most current drone they have available and about their variety, and the live man or woman chatted back with many product tips. Holy stone appears to be to be a enterprise that resells distinctive manufacture’s drones. They just stand behind what they offer. I’ve experienced the hs200 for one particular thirty day period and flown it inside and outdoors the residence. The drone had a minor situation, so i emailed them and one particular individual named andy emailed me back within ten hours and gave quite a few answers.

Update: we called and emailed holystone and they have sent. Their buyer company is outstanding. This is 1 of the explanations why soon after searching for different quadcopter brand names by reading the product assessments, the consumer support variable was a large thing to consider for me. So, we received the substitution three-four days following we called and emailed them about a problem on the trimmer with the initially quadcopter sent. It absolutely labored and carried out way better. It took awhile in advance of we figured out how to make it fly and try various things with it. So for those people who nearly or about to give up on their quadcopter, please simply call their purchaser support and they will be extremely delighted to aid you. Shocker: my husband tried traveling it although there was a light-weight rain outside the house.

I am new to drones, and essentially missing my initial one. This drone was a very little more affordable than that one particular but so far, i am actually delighted with the ease of flight. My other drone was just about unachievable to fly except it was useless relaxed. This drone can fly in a quite first rate quantity of wind. I like the vehicle takeoff element and once i figured out the trim possibilities, i was able to get it to fly up and hover right until i was all set to just take off. The camera is also rather good for these kinds of a low-cost drone. It took a couple attempts while to determine out that you have to pair your phone and operate the application in purchase for photos and video to be taken. It will not just take images without the need of acquiring the cellphone paired and the application begun. Which is not a massive deal, but took some time to figure out. There are multiple speeds on the drone as perfectly, and on prime velocity, it genuinely flies.

I would subtract one star due to the fact documentation is lacking details on calibrating the gyros and other objects (see down below) and since of that my preliminary impact was not that great. Area the drone on flat ground with its head forward and tail towards the pilot. Pair the drone with transmitter. Prolonged press button”initialising” (lessen-proper purpose button – identical as one-important-return) and obtain the led lights blinking rapidly for a second and then turn to be flashing slowly and gradually agian. The gyro ought to now be reset. On the other hand, their purchaser assist is so exceptional that i experienced to give the star back.

I was in the beginning pretty let down with this product. Experienced it significantly less than one min in the air and pressed return residence button only to have the drone commence climbing larger and larger and traveling in the reverse direction of me. I ran immediately after it but lost sight. Immediately after in excess of an hour of hunting i am so discouraged with it. I did converse to customer assistance and the woman i spoke with was incredibly great and useful. She claimed they would be emailing me a code to get a replacement drone. If this company backs their phrase and replaces their defective merchandise i will gladly maximize my score for fantastic purchaser support. Update: holy stone in all probability has the most effective consumer services i have ever dealt with. They did hold up their conclusion and swap the faulty drone. I have current to five stars dependent on this and the reality that the substitution drone functions terrific.

Bought my hs200 today and was equipped to get it for a flight this evening. I have to get applied to the controller and it is packed with so several attributes that i truthfully will have to get added batteries just to be in a position to get utilised to it for the very first several flights. I do want to clarify anything although that i did not see much about this drone prior to shopping for. I was weary of how the camera excellent would be since a buddy of mine obtained a hubsan 507a and we fly alongside one another often. Couple of points i want to issue out. one) the camera high quality on this hs200 look substantially better than his even while both declare to be a 720p. And two) i was iffy about the prop guards because his are comparable in layout and occur free very quick, leading to it to not functionality since they are beneath the blades and require the blades to have to be taken out to remove and put in them. On the hs200 they fit under the blades but lock into holes under the blades and do not need the blades to have to be eradicated to put in. I will say that i wish it came with a larger battery from the manufacturing facility however. From what i can tell they occur with a li-po 350mah battery and no spare.

My earlier overview was harsh and premature. Right after several attempts to join drone and distant i resolved to call customer. Although the girls voice was really pleasant and energized, i found it challenging knowing what was getting said. Pissed off at that issue, i gave a bad assessment on product, purchaser service and amazon. (nevertheless rethinking amazon prime membership, expense me shipping and delivery prices to return a faulty item???. Also looking through content on how much ‘free two day shipping’ seriously value you. Which is nothing to do with holy stone tho)trouble solved. Ally at holy stone customer provider contacted me really shortly following i posted review and set the dilemma. Turns out this hs two hundred drone is all the things i envisioned.

Comments from buyers

“Best customer service!!, Not sure you could buy a better drone for the price of this one!, CHRISTMAS PRESENT about to turn bad. Need HELP asap!”

I purchased this drone nov 2016 and on receipt, the motor apparently failed to function. Following a handful of e-mail back and forth with holy stone, they despatched me a replacement and two additional batteries (they let me hold the outdated a single for spare pieces). Because i have obtained the new drone, i am really joyful with it. We did obtain the further battery charger pack which was a great determination for the reason that we can go out for a pair of hours and get a lot of traveling in with loads of extra batteries. All in all, we are incredibly delighted with the drone. This is a pretty gentle drone wind will unquestionably have an affect on the flight, especially at greater altitudes. Replacing the battery only normally takes a number of seconds at the time you get the hold of popping the include and slipping the battery in and out3. The video is not excellent, we have only made use of video clip and shots one particular time, but it has to be carried out from your cellular phone.

I acquired this drone centered on excellent all round opinions and the reality that a lot of say holy stone has superior shopper assistance. Just after dealing with them, i concur. They’ve been practical answering my issues about a different holy stone products i bought from them. Under i will listing the execs and negatives i’ve obtained with this drone. I’m not confident to have this as a pro or con so i will have this assertion up listed here, the battery life on very low velocity appears to be ~seven minutes. Looking at the sizing of the small battery, i guess it is not much too negative but you may possibly want to buy some added batteries. Also make positive to acquire a lipo battery bag for safe and sound charging and storage. Just verify youtube for lipo battery fires. I also endorse a battery charger from holy stone for safe and sound and balanced charging. You can charge your battery in the lipo bag with the electricity twine coming out of the battery bag.

    I bought this for my 11-year-old who has had the cheaper mini drones that didn’t last long. So far this one has had a few rough landings as he’s learning to use it but and seems very durable. He’s quickly getting the hang of it and loves the camera feature. I’m impressed by the quality of the photos, have not tried video yet. I got the extra 4-pack of batteries and charger to go with it whch is a must-have because he can have a solid 40 mins of flying time and changing the batteries is quick. I had a problem with a cord that didn’t work with the extra battery kit and customer service was incredibly responsive and is sending out a new one. Highly recommend this product and company.

    1. My first drone, and it is fun. Fairly easy to fly – first flight was a little tricky, probably got a little too cocky for my own good, but it landed in some soft fir tree branches. Reoriented things and tried again, slowed things down a bit and had no more directional challenges 😉 got the camera working after i realized i hadn’t turned on my wi-fi, took a few pictures. Looking forward to flying more.

    1. I connected the drone to the controls and pushed the takeoff button. The drone took off and started to rise before i realized i had no control. Just watched it fly off and never saw it again. This is just a toy and not a very good one.

    This is my first time with a drone, so its a great one to start with, only set it up properly (gyro) and you are good to go. Customer service is the best.

    I wouldn’t recommend this toy for outdoor, since it has a problem with responding to back and fourth operation, that will makes it easy to fall and go out of track. Beside the camera didn’t work.

    Just beginning with drones and i’m hooked. The hs200 is really easy to fly, even for a beginner. The range is really good, it’s pretty fast and the camera is really great. It’s not a dslr but still takes great video. There is some large so flying by the camera video probably isn’t gonna happen but for 100 bucks i’m very satisfied. They take a while to charge and most drones don’t have a very long battery life. Unless you spend a lot more$.
