HOLY STONE HS100 – A CLOSER LOOK

 

HS100 is a new drone from Holy Stone, released just a few days ago at the time of this writing. With HS100 Holy Stone seems to be trying to break into the mid-range market segment, both in quality and price. Up until now Holy Stone, an established Chinese drone manufacturer, has released low cost budget drones. That isn’t really the case with HS100.

Things like built-in GPS and stabilized HD camera make this drone very interesting, but does all that justify the hefty price. Let’s take a closer look and see if we can answer that question. 

 

DRONE DESIGN

Holy Stone HS100 is a rather large drone. Coming in at 50cm in length/width and almost 20cm in height (if we count the landing gear), this is one of the more massive drones that I’ve had the opportunity of testing. Together with battery, drone measures about 700g in weight. Drone body stretches out to the sides where blades are, similar to Hubsan X4 series.

 

Camera hangs underneath the drone, and the battery plugs from behind. LEDs under the blade arms are clearly visible and will notify you about paring status between the drone and the transmitter, GPS lock status and battery status. Blade guards are optional and can be removed if you are a more confident pilot.

Build quality is one of the better ones I’ve seen from recently released drones. One quick tip, don’t force the screws in too much when changing blades/guards/landing gear because you might damage the thread. It happened to me so I had to get creative to unscrew one of the blade guards.

 

WHAT MAKES HOLY STONE HS100 INTERESTING?

 

  • Bulky and powerful – large size and powerful motors allow the drone to fight winds without issues
  • Good range – flight range of 500m and FPV range of 150m are not that bad to be honest
  • Large battery – large 2500mAh battery allows for 15 minute flight session, plus it’s replaceable
  • Camera – 720p camera with a 90° adjustable tilt, adjusted using a scroll wheel on transmitter
  • FPV mode – Holy Stone app lets you hook up your smartphone to the drone for FPV flying
  • VR mode – FPV app has built-in VR support, but you need to purchase VR goggles separately
  • Altitude hold – HS100 has a very stable altitude hold mode, which keeps the drone in air reliably
  • Adjustable speed – speed is adjustable using a scroll wheel on the transmitter itself
  • Additional – GPS, barometer, gyroscopes, headless mode, one-key takeoff/land, follow me mode

 

WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE BETTER?

 

  • Camera quality – camera quality should be better, especially for the relatively high MSRP price
  • FPV range – drone itself has good range, but FPV range of 150m is a bit limiting, should be better
  • Charge time – it takes between 3-6 hourse to charge the battery, which is unacceptable
  • Price – MSRP price for this drone is a bit too high, I think it should be cheaper consider the specs
