Hubsan Launches $199 Drone With 20-Minute Flight Time

Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) manufacturer Hubsan has launched a what it calls a “high-quality, affordable drone option,” the H501A+.

Available starting at $199, the new UAV offers a 1080P camera resolution, 20 minutes of flight time, GPS positioning, automatic takeoff and return-to-home functions, and 360-degree photography and videography.

“We designed Hubsan’s drones, and the H501A+ model, with quality and affordability in mind,” says Kevin Chen, Hubsan’s U.S. branch manager. “We are bringing drones to a wider audience through our accessible pricing while also including all of the newest technology found in competing models.”

Wi-Fi users can control the drone through a mobile app, or pilots can employ 2.4G, using the controller to guide the drone and their phone as a screen.

“Bringing quality drones to the masses continues to be our main focus. We never want cost to be a factor in consumers enjoying advanced drone technology,” Chen continues. “From photography enthusiasts to drone racers and even young users looking for their first drone, Hubsan has an option for every type of drone enthusiast.”

Hubsan notes it is also developing a new drone line launching in June. The company, which has headquarters in Shenzhen, China, and a U.S. facility in Walnut, Calif., says its vision is to bring “high-quality, affordable drones to consumers deterred by an expensive global drone market.”
