Had a little test of my new toy this afternoon..... First time I have flown anything with GPS.
 It holds its position very accurately, follows me and returns home just like it says on the box !
It flys for 20 mins easily, I got 2 Lipo';s so loads of fun.

A whole new experience for me to be able to just flick a switch and it comes back and lands at your feet. Very relaxing not having to frantically twiddle the sticks constantly  :laugh:
I just hope it doesn';t try flying back to china.

Watch plenty of youtube video`s and be warned if you fly it fast in attitude it will nose down, if low flight it will crash into ground, i had one but it did not impress me so i ended up selling it on

Yes, I';ve watched the vids on ';the tumble of death';, not good  :cry
Video quality is average, very wobbly but it was quite windy. On zero wind days I can imagine it being quite smooth.... not to gimbal DJI standards though.
I like all the screen info.
Cheap at 197 squid from gearbest, so I hope it';s a nice introduction to GPS quads.
I';m fancying a phantom 3 or similar now  :laugh:

I already had the P3 when i got the 501 A so it never came close to the performance of the P3, this may be why i sold it on pretty quick

I tried real hard with Ardupilot, i really wanted to get my head around the system but it always beat me, so many hicups just trying to get to a point where it would let me spin the motors........then i tried Naza, way better for me as i found i could do all the set up and get the thing in the air, then things got even better in the form of the P3, i really like AP and the P3 does an amazing job on this, after a while i found the P3 is also great fun to fly, fast and agile
Some people have a knack for getting used to Ardupilot, some like me struggle

It looks like hopefully, to be honest it';s worked faultless, and 4 Lipo';s through it so far.
Watching lots of videos, and one thing I';ve noticed on RTH mine flys nose in on the return back ? On lots of reviews the quad gains some altitude, turns with camera facing away, then returns.
I wonder if this is with older firmware models.

Good fun quad for exploratory gps fpv missions. 
I had one for a bit and had some fun with it.
