Build & Design
First of all the Holy Stone HS190 is a mini drone, which means it’s extremely tiny in size which makes it easier to control and more suitable to fly in an indoor environment. The dimensions of the drone are: 4.5 x 4.5 x 1.2 inches (with propeller guards).
The most unique thing about the design of the drone is that it’s foldable which increases its portability and makes it easier for you to carry the drone and go with it anywhere you like.
The drone is equipped with landing gears and comes with propeller guards so it becomes protected from most of the hits and damage it will get from crashes that a newbie or an advanced user might make.
This design makes the drone suitable for flying in an indoor environment and suitable for beginners to start their journey in flying drones without having to worry about the drone being damaged because of the mistakes that they will inevitably make.
Performance wise this drone is very smooth while flight and it is very responsive to the controller.
Due to the small size of the drone, and other factors that also contribute, the drone has low wind resistance, which means any slight breeze of wind can blow the drone a way. This makes the drone more suitable for indoor environments or you can fly it in days where the weather is good.
The flight time of this drone is 5-7 minutes which is the average for this type of drones, and the charging time is 40 minutes which is also okay.
The transmission range is 30 – 50 meters, which is not far away for the drone which supports the argument that it’s suitable for indoor environments.
Features & Capabilities
The drone has many features and capabilities that make it fun and enjoying to fly, these features are:
- Altitude Hold
- One Key Take Off/Land
- Headless Mode
- One Key Return
- 360 Degree Flips
- 3 Speeds
This feature lets the drone hover in the air steadily without holding the throttle button in the controller, this allows the user to handle the interruptions, if there’s any, that happen while flying the drone without having to land.
One Key Take Off/Land
In this feature the drone automatically takes off or lands without any input from the user, which makes it a bit easier for beginners to fly the drone.
This feature truly makes life easier for beginners and make the job of flying a drone a lot easier, this feature makes the drone fly based on the transmitter’s orientation not the drone’s orientation, this means that when you hit front on the transmitter the drone will go front no matter where it’s facing because in the non-headless mode the drone would go front according to the drone’s front not the transmitter.
One Key Return
By a press of a button the drone can return to the point it first started flying which makes flying the drone a bit easier.
360 Degree Flips
For the fun and showing off -if there’s anybody watching- you can do 360 degree flips around any axis which makes it joyful to fly the drone.
The drone has three speeds to amuse the beginner and the advanced users so everyone is happy when they’re flying this drone.
This drone is perfectly suitable for kids, beginners, and newbie drone pilots. It’s low-cost drone so in the worst case scenario the drone crashes and it’s not working anymore you haven’t lost much of your money. But crashing this drone is not going to be an easy task since it’s equipped with landing gears and propeller guards that protect the bottom and the sides of the drone so most of the crashes a newbie would make won’t affect the drone due to the appropriate protection.
