Holy Stone HS700 Drone – Very Nice GPS Drone!

WARNING! This is what happens when I do a review without having my morning coffee. I refer to the high quality BRUSHLESS motors as BRUSHED motors… duh. I am now seeking treatment 🙂 . Enjoy the review: This is a quick video review of the Holy Stone HS700 GPS drone with 1080P camera.

    What app do you use

    I just got my HS700D. 1st drone. Disappointed just trying to put it together. The prop guards are absolutely useless. They are for a smaller engine size. They just flop around in the socket. The drone starts up 1st time and hits the props. I thought trees were going to be my drones nemesis.
    I had to put a rubber-band around the mini usb to pull it in the socket, because it just kept falling out of the charger when a light breeze from my house fan hits it.
    It says do not charge by wall socket or car lighter. Whaaaa?
    I got a hold of Amazon. I don’t think the online assistant understands engineering.Wanted me to send back the small fitting prop guards. I declined. Since there are no specs for the size of prop guards available anywhere(ancient Chinese secret) will I get the right part? No spec stamps on the plastic guards. I don’t have a caliper right now., The blanks that came on the unit fit VERY TIGHT! Ahhhh.
    Update: I put the replacement drone together today. There was no quality control once again. The prop guards had the same 4 pieces stopping it from fitting in the the slots. The drones internet was available, but couldn’t connect after clicking allow. No internet connection and the camera won’t function. I took my old working camera and put it on the replacement. I could get internet on the old camera with the same wire. Camera is the 1st word in Camera drone.

    how you fix the motor if the motor quit working

  4. ahmed King on August 24, 2020 at 9:33 am

    Why didnt you show us how to calibrate it so we can fly it. Poor instructional video.

  5. Steve Rulison on August 24, 2020 at 9:35 am

    Is this an American made drone? One of the issues I had with a previous drone I purchased (Aero View Drone Model No DRC-446) was I could NOT get any kind of customer support. I have seen many other people online that had the same complaint. I would like to know that I can get it replaced if it has a defect right out of the box. I also want to be able to get replacement parts as well. Thank you.

  6. Darkpaw TheWolf on August 24, 2020 at 9:36 am

    No image stabilization. Too bad, as this would have been a great drone at a reasonable price, with a huge range.

  7. Nicolas Müller Pozo on August 24, 2020 at 9:39 am

    Very nice video

  8. Josh Hansen on August 24, 2020 at 9:39 am

    If you have a old iPhone SE will the drone work with the the phone?

  9. ItsSolomon on August 24, 2020 at 9:42 am

    The drone stabliztion looks bad, why’s that? Looking for a photography drone sub 150 dollars

  10. Paul Tiesman on August 24, 2020 at 9:42 am

    I see many videos of drones. I did buy the HS700D Drone and it is great. Not many reviews show the drone with the prop protectors. As a beginner should I use them or not?

  11. Cesar Sanchez on August 24, 2020 at 9:43 am

    Can I put my hero 7 black instead of that one?

  12. Alyssa Valencia on August 24, 2020 at 9:46 am

    Purchased bc of this video, thank you

  13. Gazoo on August 24, 2020 at 9:48 am

    How many times does a drone land EXACTLY on the landing pad? There should be a prize.

  14. Victor VIllar on August 24, 2020 at 9:52 am

    cant calibrate the gps on it

  15. World Bike Boat Party on August 24, 2020 at 9:52 am

    Thanks for the advice on the drones!

  16. CAPTAIN DRONE on August 24, 2020 at 9:55 am

    In the video if I say BRUSHED motors, I meant to say BRUSHLESS motors. I now enjoy a coffee before every review in order to kick start the brain cells.

  17. Jeremy Velazquez on August 24, 2020 at 9:55 am

    Can you use a GoPro and still be able to see the video on your app while using it?

  18. Mbunda Mkatoliki on August 24, 2020 at 9:58 am

    where i can buy hs700d ?

  19. s1de w1nd3r on August 24, 2020 at 9:58 am

    Only issue is the footage from it is poor, no stabilisation at all.. think im about to pull the trigger on the JJRC x12 aurora at the moment – would you go for that to for the price of around £230-£260????

  20. S7VAN Gaming And Unboxing on August 24, 2020 at 9:59 am

    Only 20 minutes of flight time? Is there any drone that lasts at least 1 hour? Because 20 minutes sounds low

  21. imran malik on August 24, 2020 at 10:00 am

    This drone is best:https://amzn.to/3a9WKKt

  22. Clifford Kirby on August 24, 2020 at 10:01 am

    I can’t find where to buy this drone anywhere on the Internet. Obviously not mobile friendly.

  23. Sujitha Dilip on August 24, 2020 at 10:03 am

    Is the ryze Tello better than this

  24. Bokicazver on August 24, 2020 at 10:04 am

    Thank you…

  25. Ray Reinson on August 24, 2020 at 10:04 am

    Great review. I just ordered one from Amazon. Get it in a few days. Do you know which Go Pro cameras can be used with the HS700?

  26. Michael Jackson SB on August 24, 2020 at 10:04 am

    Can I have 3-4 years of fun with this drone if I Don’t crash it and take very very very good care of it?

  27. DiscoveringOutdoors on August 24, 2020 at 10:04 am

    Another fabulous video Captain. 👍👍👍 I just ordered the newer hs700d version from A. Need to get my license. Gave up on my beast order. 😕

  28. DeadShot Gaming PH on August 24, 2020 at 10:06 am

    Your Super Great Reviewer i love watching your Video Thanks Alot

  29. Chris H on August 24, 2020 at 10:07 am

    Holly and Holy, Christmas/bible. Coffee will fix it

  30. A Sharma on August 24, 2020 at 10:08 am

    Hi..Awesome. I am looking for a under $300 drone for sailing that will return to "home" but to the controller since the boat may be in motion.

  31. david cooke on August 24, 2020 at 10:11 am

    Help, oh my God I just purchased an HS550 without realizing its a 5G drone we don’t have 5G network we use 4G can I use and fly my drone in 4G Great video enjoyed that, Thank you

  32. Tiffany Nelson on August 24, 2020 at 10:12 am

    Thanks for this thorough review, we just bought the HS700D for our son’s 14th birthday…and we bought the landing pad too. Your link’s one was out of stock but we bought a similar one. Thanks dearly!! Let’s hope we don’t lose it. Do you have a video on how a newbie should start using one (even us parents). I’m thinking backyard/park and not too high.

  33. paul deacon on August 24, 2020 at 10:14 am

    Very good video Steve, & that’s a very nice drone!! 😀👍👍

  34. GhostTrain on August 24, 2020 at 10:16 am

    I’m getting this drone real soon. Thank you for this video as you’ve helped me make my mind up on which drone to get.

  35. Electro Print on August 24, 2020 at 10:16 am

    Will this drone last minimum 2-3 years if I Don’t crash it and take very very very good care of it?

  36. Lee Kahle on August 24, 2020 at 10:17 am

    I am looking at this drone for my first one to own. I have flown a bit before but I will call my self a beginner. I’m also looking at the E58 or as you call it the mavic mini I know that they are two different types of drones but I can spend a little less and and get a bunch of battery’s for the E58 but I like the gps feature of the HS700 and well as a few other things. Just looking for some direction.

  37. Joshua Park on August 24, 2020 at 10:19 am

    do you need to register this drone with the government?

  38. baxter dequito on August 24, 2020 at 10:19 am

    pretty cool drone, it goes with a make up kit!

  39. Robert Brooks on August 24, 2020 at 10:20 am

    "I am now seeking treatment." Lol. Good one, Captain. I have a squadron of DJI products and seek a cheapie to practice around the house (which, interestingly enough, is nanny-stated by DJI). These videos are very helpful!

  40. Chas Pre on August 24, 2020 at 10:21 am

    Which one is the best the zino or x9p or x9ps or jjrc X12 or this

  41. Victor Polo on August 24, 2020 at 10:22 am

    I know that the Holy stone hs700 and hs700d have cameras but which one has a better camera?

  42. DB Familia Camargo on August 24, 2020 at 10:22 am

    Hi thanks for the video

  43. Tom Demaline on August 24, 2020 at 10:22 am

    What Holy Stone are you using for the HS700D?

  44. torydz on August 24, 2020 at 10:23 am

    Good thing you didn’t say it has a brushless camera! Like going to a restaurant and ordering boneless pudding.

  45. Henscity on August 24, 2020 at 10:24 am

    i got this drone because of this captain drone video. best drone for first timer like me i tell you that . i crashed it like 6 times on my first day – crashed it head on to walls, tree brunches and into my car lol. but the worst is one from the tree 30 feet high and came down in 5 pieces and 2 bent propellers. luckily it came with another extra 4. i dust it up and put the camera back on and put the new 4 propellers and it fly like nothing happen. never crash it ever since. well that was just last week this is my third day playing with it . oh i forgot i tried to catch it like captain drone guy but my other hand reflex try to catch it as well so i almost lost my finger ..damn..dont try that on the first day.

  46. Adam on August 24, 2020 at 10:25 am

    Bought one 2min ago 😂

  47. Joseph Murrietta on August 24, 2020 at 10:26 am

    This video came out a year ago, but I hope to get a answer. Can you use a Ipod in stead of a cell phone.

  48. youtoo2012 on August 24, 2020 at 10:27 am

    Looks awesome…
    you fly it so easy…

  49. Mitch Dante on August 24, 2020 at 10:28 am

    Hi Captain! I just started you tubing drones and you have taught me a lot so far! Thank you for all your videos. I am looking for a drone simulator for my Iphone 6/ Ipad. I cannot find one that has a left stick and a right stick simulator. Just like a typical controller. Might you recommend a good one? THX

  50. Tinnybird G on August 24, 2020 at 10:30 am

    Beautiful drone!
