they seem a little small I have two syma x8hg there fast and fun but don't have the distances I'm hoping for they go 75 meters would this be a good replacement for power speed distance exc.
Does this model require a license to operate in Ohio?

No but does require faa registration if over .5 lb ...which this is.....
If I ordered it today would I receive it. before Christmas
I would have expected a better price than $199. Banggood has them for $188 this week for the white version and $192 for the black and they're already in their USA warehouse.
Receive my drone on the 31st! Super fast shipping.

Flys great and does good photos and video. I will try to post a photo. Two things I’ve noticed.
1. I haven’t spoke with support yet but it seems to have a locked max height/ceiling of 250 meters.
2. The transmitter drains AA batteries quick. So the first “mod” you want to do is get rechargeable batteries. Local hobby shop said the easiest way is to use rechargeable AA’s and connect to the built in charging port on the transmitter. So I removed the built in rubber protective cover on the port and no connector in the space where it should be.
Looking in the hole all you see is the back of a circut board.

Now I know the most common way to do this is to solder in a connection to the stock battery pack and attach a larger LiPo pack. But I can’t understand if they just forgot to install the port or if they it’s been removed from the SS model.

Gonna try to find out more and update.

Update* Max altitude was added during one of the latest patches in the firmware. 250 meters is up there. I imagine there were plenty of flyaways that people blamed on Hubsan so they set the limit. Apparently it can be removed but Hubsan accepts no responsibility if things go bad.
Ordered Oct. 23. First delivery date Nov. 1, then Nov. 3. Now "delivered" to Edison, NJ. I live in Toronto, ON.

Where did you ship it to? Mine has since been cancelled, which I found out after contacting Massdrop support.

Does this come with a warranty if bought through here?

well I just joined the drop like 30 seconds before you posted so I feel better now. I asked US support and they said they didn't think so.

One other thing, it says estimated ship date is Nov 13th I believe or something like that. I know there can be delays but I'm assuming we would have it by mid December right? Its a Chanukah present.

Yes, you should be fine. We have a direct relationship with Hubsan so they do come here from China. But you should have it before then. Also, if you ever need any help with support/warranty stuff just contact Massdrop support. We will get you in touch with the right people.
Scratch that- figured it out- A and B....

A month from ordering it
Just got my drone. 4 of the props do not fit, they just slide over the thread. 4 do fit. I will request replacement props to be sent. Other than that I am very impressed with the build quality and the controller . First flight review to follow.....

What kind of batteries does it use?
Looking to get this Hubsan as my first drone after looking at everything in the price range. Was thinking about the Flexify but it looks like the company that sells them went out of business. My main reason is that I wanted to carry small payloads with the Flexify due to its accessories. I found various gimbals for the H501ss but was wondering if anyone has any accessories (custom made or purchased) that would be able to carry items? Or even drone fish.
Does it use one of the standard 1S, 2S, 3S, etc, lipo hobbyist batteries? If so, what type?

Just caught your post with the lastest drop. I know its a 2cell with balance plug and standard charge plug. I think (not 100% sure) that it's a 2700mah battery and upgrades for it are available.
