In this review video I test out the little action camera mount made for the Husband H501S. I discuss the pros and cons of adding all this weight to this hobby quadcopter. I use the Firefly 7s along with a third party bracket.

The sample drone footage has image stabilization added in Final Cut Pro X and color grading.

Watch the video to find out what I think about this setup and if you think it’s for you.

    Well done!! No so freestyle friendly judging by the footage 😉

  2. WASSSAAAPPP on August 1, 2020 at 8:20 am

    Who skipped through this for the footage

  3. philaw123 on August 1, 2020 at 8:22 am

    That is NOT cinematic footage. No better than what you get from the stock HD cameras of cheap Chinese knockoffs. Check out footage from JJRC’s F11 drone, which looks better IMHO and is about the same price as the 501s, if not cheaper, and that’s before you factor in the cost of the camera and landing gear.

    Are you south African?

  5. Boo Boo on August 1, 2020 at 8:25 am

    Nice. I have an issue with this review: why was the drone flying straight when recording? How does the video look when it turns? Think u do need a gimbal.

  9. Gucci Lucci on August 1, 2020 at 8:27 am

    Nice video

  10. Abdullah Basoglu on August 1, 2020 at 8:27 am

    Hello,
    which is better?: Hubsan h501s with action camera or parrot bebop 1/2?

  11. Kai Mason on August 1, 2020 at 8:28 am

    i recently did it it was brilliant i didnt use the gimbal tho i just attached it but i am a little scared about losing my drone and my gopro

  12. Life Enhancer on August 1, 2020 at 8:28 am

    my video is soooooooooooooo cheap heheheh

  13. _-DaRk³NorSZ-_ on August 1, 2020 at 8:29 am

    I have the same Action Cam and the problem with is that the footage is so undetailed

  14. so steve on August 1, 2020 at 8:29 am

    Thanks for showing

  15. Paulo on August 1, 2020 at 8:31 am

    Parabéns pelo canal, esse drone é muito bom.

  16. Edwin Negron on August 1, 2020 at 8:32 am

    love my hub, waiting on a new set of legs, the other ones I bought made the craft very unstable!!! Place my AKASO Brave 4 sports camera and works well. thanks

  17. _-DaRk³NorSZ-_ on August 1, 2020 at 8:35 am

    so around 300 bugs for all of the equipment u showed us, 100 more and you can buy a spark which has better image stabilisation and besser video quality

  18. Otman ALAMI on August 1, 2020 at 8:38 am

    Where can i find the gadget to hold the camera please ?

  19. CraigBMM on August 1, 2020 at 8:39 am

    have you had any issues with Hubsan batteries cutting out due to higher voltage draws when running the gimble and camera? i read about Hubsan original batteries having a voltage regulator to cut off power if an over surge of voltage . i have the 501 SS .. go pro camera and mount on the way

  20. King Voxel on August 1, 2020 at 8:42 am

    What does "brushless" mean? I heard that word a million times and I’m still scratching my head.

  21. doobyboy21 on August 1, 2020 at 8:42 am

    I basically did the same thing with the same exact drone but instead I used a GoPro Hero 7 Black that has Ultra Smooth Stabilization. I used 2 zip ties and the GoPro’s carry case… I can even choose the angle I want to shoot in. Worked wonders ! But I want a real gimbal drone… I’ll probably hate myself if I loose the $500(cdn) Camera…

  22. DurtE on August 1, 2020 at 8:42 am

    How do you know what you are shooting? Is the image that you see when you are flying from the camera you mounted or the drone camera? If it is the drone cam, do you just set your angle on the external cam and see what you have after?

  23. Amir Rokshire on August 1, 2020 at 8:45 am

    Mavic Mini

  24. Michal Kedzierski on August 1, 2020 at 8:45 am

    I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DRONE. I’ve had it for a year and trust me, it’s not worth it. Do yourself a favour and Save up 200$ more and just get yourself a DJI spark..

  25. Glen Smith on August 1, 2020 at 8:45 am

    Nice enough drone. But i will rather stick to my Bugs drones. My one Bugs 2se is far cheaper at the moment, even with 3 batteries option can probably fly 6 to 8 times further. Have bought Cymarc landing gear for 4k action camera. Works like a charm. Nice video and well explained. (Also i never take off with less than 7 satellites, everyone on Youtube stipulates that.)

  26. The Next Step creations on August 1, 2020 at 8:48 am

    Heyy there bruh
    If u have any give away present
    Please give it me
    I have started my own you tube channel and i need to grow more

  27. Nathan Almond on August 1, 2020 at 8:48 am

    My phone went to 750 p instead of 1080 can someone tell me if it looks really detailed I have the drone but I want a gimbal and a good camera

  28. Gatto Npc on August 1, 2020 at 8:49 am

    The footage looks like shit. What you expect for a drone made in china and cost $220? lol Verry expensive for what it can do.

  29. Stephen Meeker on August 1, 2020 at 8:49 am

    What song was played at the beginning?

  30. Mikrodronefiend Videos on August 1, 2020 at 8:50 am

    do you think apple will buy or make an attempt to takeover dji?

  31. Spongebob_onmouse on August 1, 2020 at 8:50 am

    Wow a good Afrikaans youtubes

  32. Samim Vlogs on August 1, 2020 at 8:52 am

    Can i use any action camera in this?

  33. Adin Walls on August 1, 2020 at 8:53 am

    Purchase hack! Buy through AMAZON and get the drone from HUBSAN instead of through a third party retailer: https://amzn.to/2FaC0my

  34. Spongebob_onmouse on August 1, 2020 at 8:55 am

    HE IS SOUTH AFRICAN LIKE ME

  35. vishesche electronic on August 1, 2020 at 8:57 am

    I got the syma x8hg, because other drones like hubson are not available in india,also if they are, they’re expensive and the parts aren’t available. Syma parts are available on Amazon. I’ve mounted the YI action camera on it,but im yet to test it because its Monsoon season,lots of rain and super windy out here. Your drone seems quite good because the original flight time is 20minutes and you still get 12 minutes after mounting an action cam. Pretty awesome. I got one without gps because it was cheaper and also because i won’t be flying it very far or very high with the cam on, im pretty sure it wont fly too high with the weight of the camera. The only thing im worried about after watching your video is frying the motors and esc. Hope i dont fry them too soon

  36. DanItsColed on August 1, 2020 at 8:58 am

    As a South African, how would you rate buying from banggood/gearbest? They seem to have great deals but shipping to SA always makes me nervous

  37. Joe Sundquist on August 1, 2020 at 9:00 am

    I had 1 hubsan h501s that dove to its death so I bought another that still works good not terrible but isn’t very reliable. For the price your much better off buying a parrot bebop 2.

  38. Stefan Sprenger on August 1, 2020 at 9:01 am

    Looks shitty. Not comporable with DJI.

  39. Im Not Mervin on August 1, 2020 at 9:06 am

    is that cinematic part filtered or it’s the vid from drone?

  40. Kristóf Herle on August 1, 2020 at 9:09 am

    Can it work with bugs 2?

  41. Nathan Almond on August 1, 2020 at 9:10 am

    It’s a good drone but I wish that I spent the extra for a upair drone I thinks that’s what it’s called. If anyone knows where I can get a small 2-3 axis gimbal to attach to my h5o1s please tell me

  42. Fya Philly on August 1, 2020 at 9:11 am

    Very good info bro..Lemme save those rands for this!

  43. Milko Angelov on August 1, 2020 at 9:11 am

    Crap cinematic ,still good gps bird to fly but if you want cinematic at least 2 axis gimbal is needed

  44. Fly 4 fun Tech Freak on August 1, 2020 at 9:11 am

    I fly with my MJX Bugs 2 Se with mouthed Action Cam and i newer think that i can burn my ESC 😲

  47. Mikhail Suleymanov on August 1, 2020 at 9:15 am

  49. Mikrodronefiend Videos on August 1, 2020 at 9:16 am

    I had a bad experience with hubsan motors. my sparks are awesome and should’t even be mentioned in a comparison with any hubsan. which hubsan has 360 degree sphere mode? i liked your video and i subscribed. good luck.
