It is recommended that users implement some kind of flight training (i.e using a simulator for flight
practice, seeking professional guidance, etc.) before flying the H507A. Please select an appropriate
flight environment for flight.
4-1 Flight environment requirements
(1) Select an open environment devoid of high rise buildings and tall obstructions (such as trees and
poles). Near buildings and obstacles, flight control signals and GPS signals can be severely weakened;
GPS functions such as GPS mode and Return to Home may not function properly.
(2) Do not fly in bad weather conditions (such as in wind, rain or fog).
(3) Fly the drone in ambient temperatures 0-40°C .
(4) When flying, please stay away from obstructions, crowds, high voltage lines, trees, water, etc.
(5) To avoid remote control signals interference, do not fly in complex electromagnetic environments (such
as venues with radio stations, power plants and towers).
(6) The H501A cannot be used in or near the Arctic circle or Antarctica.
(7) Do not fly in no fly zones.
(8) Do not operate the aircraft near high pressure lines, airports or areas with severe magnetic
4-2 Pre-Flight checklist
(1) Make sure the aircraft battery and mobile device are charged and have adequate power
(2) Confirm that propellers and screws are properly installed
(3) If you are taking pictures, insert the Micro-SD card into the drone before powering the aircraft on.
(4) Verify that the motors arm and spin smoothly
(5) Ensure the camera lens is clean
4-3 Compass Calibration
The compass must be calibrated every time the aircraft is powered on. The compass is susceptible to
interference by other electronic equipment, magnetic interference and metal, which can lead to erratic
behavior and loss of control. Regular calibration helps keep the compass and its readings accurate.
1) Enter the X-Hubsan App camera page. Follow the APP’s on-screen instructions.
2) Once both steps are completed, the calibration window will disappear.
Compass calibration 1 (horizontal)
Compass calibration 2 (vertical)
4-4 Arming and disarming motors
When the mobile device, transmitter and aircraft have been
bound together properly, users may control the aircraft directly
with the HT009 transmitter.
Arming/starting motors
Simultaneously pull the transmitter joysticks diagonally downout to arm the motors (as shown in the side figure).
Disarming/stopping motors
Pull the throttle joystick all the way down until the copter has
completed its descent on the ground. Simultaneously pull
the transmitter joysticks diagonally down-out to disarm the
motors (as shown in the side figure).
Do not disarm during flight. The motors will stop in midair, causing the aircraft to fall and other such
Be sure to operate the virtual joysticks slowly and firmly. When disarming, wait until the motors
come to a complete stop before releasing the joysticks.
4-5 Auto Takeoff/Auto Land
When the transmitter status LED is solidly lit, users may use the Auto Takeoff/Auto Land functions.
Follow the below instructions to use both functions.
Auto Takeoff
Please confirm that conditions are safe for take-off. Then, long
press the Auto Takeoff key and the aircraft will automatically
take off, maintaining a height of around 2 meters. Note that
when the aircraft is airborne, the Auto Takeoff key will become
an Auto Land.
Auto Land
Please confirm that conditions are safe for a landing. Then,
long press the Auto Land key. The aircraft will descend
automatically, land and disarm.
4-6 Transmitter functions
The remote control is by default set to Mode 2 in factory; this manual will introduce flight operations in
Mode 2.
Transmitter joysticks are self-centering and spring loaded: the joysticks will automatically center themselves
Joystick sensitivity: dependent how much and how forcefully each joystick is pulled or pushed away from
center point
Remote Control (Mode 2)
Transmitter controls
The throttle is used to control the ascent and
descent of the aircraft. Push the throttle up
and the aircraft ascends. Pull the throttle back
and the aircraft descends. When the joystick
is centered (unmoving), the aircraft will hold its
altitude in the air. The throttle must be pushed
upwards beyond center point for the aircraft to
completely takeoff from the ground. The harder
the throttle is pushed, the faster the aircraft
will ascend. Please push the throttle slowly for
a gradual lift and to prevent the aircraft from
ascending erratically.
Clockwise rotation
The rudder is used to control the aircraft’s
rotations. Push the joystick to the left and the
aircraft rotates counterclockwise. Push the
joystick to the right and the aircraft rotates
clockwise. When the joystick is centered
(unmoving), the angular velocity of the aircraft
is "0" and the aircraft will not turn. How hard
the rudder is pushed will determine the angular
velocity of the aircraft’s rotation. The harder the
rudder is pushed, the faster the aircraft rotates.
Counterclockwise rotation
The elevator controls the aircraft’s forward and
backward movement. Push the joystick forward
and the aircraft will tilt and fly forward. Pull
the joystick back and the aircraft will tilt and
fly backwards. When the joystick is centered
(unmoving), the aircraft will hold its altitude
in the air. How hard the elevator is pushed
will determine the degree of the aircraft’s tilt
and therefore the velocity of its forward and
backward movement. The harder the elevator is
pushed, the greater the aircraft’s tilt angle and
flight speed either forwards or backwards.
The aileron controls the aircraft’s left and right
movement. Push the joystick to the left and
the aircraft will tilt and fly leftwards. Pull the
joystick to the right and the aircraft will tilt and
fly rightwards. When the joystick is centered
(unmoving), the aircraft will hold its altitude
in the air. How hard the aileron is pushed
will determine the degree of the aircraft’s tilt
and therefore the velocity of its left and right
movement. The harder the aileron is pushed,
the greater the aircraft’s tilt angle and flight
speed either leftwards or rightwards.
4-7 Basic Flight
Basic flight operation:
1) Place the aircraft on flat, open ground; the head should be facing away/forward and the tail pointing
towards the user.
2) Connect the aircraft to its battery and run the X-Hubsan APP. Pair the aircraft with the chosen mobile
device via the device’s WIFI utility.
Enter the password for”Hubsan_h507a-XXX”

5) Confirm that flight and takeoff conditions are safe. Proceed to either manually arm the drone’s motors
for flight, or use the Auto Takeoff function. Upon finishing a flight, users may use the Auto Land option or
land and disarm manually.
6) After a safe landing, users may power off the aircraft and transmitter after the motors have reached a
complete stop.
4-8 Return to Home
Return to Home mode will only work when the aircraft has 6 or more satellites. Otherwise, the unit will
not able to return; it will malfunction.
Entering Return to Home mode
Long press the Return to Home button for 1.5 seconds and the
quadcopter will perform a Return to Home. The flight control
system will command the aircraft to return to its designated
“home” point. Users can either allow the flight system to land
the aircraft automatically, or exit Return to Home and land the
aircraft manually.
Exiting Return to Home
To terminate Return to Home, short press for 0.5 seconds. Users may then continue to fly or land the
aircraft manually.
Use this function only if the aircraft has 6 or more GPS satellites.
5、The Failsafe
5-1 Low power
When the aircraft battery is low, there is likely insufficient power to support the return of the aircraft.
Please land the aircraft immediately, otherwise the aircraft will fall and cause damage to the aircraft and
surrounding objects. To prevent this, the aircraft flight control will use flight information to determine
whether to perform a Return to Home or to land immediately.
Note: If the transmitter joysticks or keys are utilized during the Return to Home process, the aircraft
will immediately exit RTH mode. Users must re-engage Return to Home to continue it once more.
5-2 Loss of flight control connection
When the flight control connection between the aircraft and transmitter is lost, the aircraft will
automatically land or return to where the remote control/transmitter was last located and land there. This
can drastically reduce the possibility of the aircraft crashing or being lost.
Return Home point: The aircraft records the return point as the location where it first gains 6+
satellites in GPS Hold mode.
Conditions that may trigger a failsafe
Transmitter is powered off.
The flight distance exceeds the remote control’s signal transmission range.
There is an obstacle between the remote control and aircraft.
The flight control or transmitter signal is interrupted by strong external electronic interference.
To ensure the successful return of the aircraft if it loses flight control connection, users must
confirm that the aircraft has enough GPS satellites to fly safely in GPS mode. Users must also
be certain that the flight environment is clear enough for an emergency return and landing.
If the aircraft's GPS satellites drop below 6 for more than 20 seconds while the X4 is returning
to Home Point, the aircraft will automatically descend.
The X4 cannot avoid obstacles automatically while in Failsafe mode. Users may set the Return
to Home height to avoid running the aircraft into obstructions.
