Holy Stone HS270 Drone Review

Holy Stone HS270 Drone Review 2019 – is the Holy Stone HS270 quadcopter worth the money? Review of features, pricing, flight duration, battery, camera and more.

Holy Stone HS270 is a compact drone with a solid set of features for its size and price. The drone succeeds the HS700 with several fresh and improved features that actually make their presence felt, particularly if you are upgrading from the HS700. In this Holy Stone HS270 drone review article, we’ll look at the new features that the HS270 brings to the table and ascertain whether they are upgrades in the truest sense.

Design

Though made of plastic (high-quality polycarbonate), the grey color scheme of the drone gives it a metallic look, and the heft only adds to that feeling. The lack of bright colors certainly makes sure the HS270 looks like a professional drone and not like a toy. Both the propellers and arms of the drone are foldable, which makes the already small drone a lot more compact and travel-friendly. There is also a left-hand mode to accommodate lefties.

Flight & Battery

With an estimated flight time of 18 minutes, the HS270 will certainly bring smiles onto faces of people who have become accustomed to 7 or 8-minute drone flight times. In fact, the HS270’s flight time is a solid improvement from the company’s previous releases.

Major credit for this impressive endurance level should go to the Li-Po battery fitted into the drone, along with the brushless motor that consumes lesser power. The “brushless” nature of the motor also means a relatively quiet flight. The drone features a small light that helps fly the drone in the dark.

Once fully depleted, the battery would take anywhere between five to seven hours of charging for a complete top-up. This is perhaps the only area where the battery fails to impress. Holy Stone should have put in some effort to reduce the charging time. Since it takes so long to recharge, it’s recommended you have some spare batteries handy so that you don’t wait for hours before you could fly the drone again.

Flying the drone is quite simple, which helps accommodate even the most novice quadcopter pilots. The ‘intelligent flight’ function assisted by GPS makes sure you never lose track of your drone, particularly when the drone falls out of your sight. The drone would return to you automatically whenever there is no signal or the battery is low.

Camera

The HS270 comes with an FHD 2.7K camera that would let you shoot high-quality images and 2.7K videos. The camera lens tilts 90 degrees, letting you capture things from multiple angles. The camera also has a shock absorption holder that helps tread vibrations calmly. This, not to mention, helps capture extremely still and clear pictures and videos. If you are a professional vlogger or photographer, you would truly appreciate this feature.

There is also 5G connectivity for some fluent and fast FPV transmission. The accompanying mobile app makes sure you control the drone remotely and share your captures with anyone by a single click.

Remote Control & Range

The drone’s remote control has an impressive 1,968 feet range, which is quite a fair distance, particularly when you compare it to the HS100 and HS700. This massive range helps you capture footage of distant areas or landscapes conveniently. The remote control is comfortable to hold and has ergonomic joysticks. The different controls have been laid out clearly so that piloting the drone is easy to handle for beginners also.

The remote control’s 2.4GHz transmitter lets the drone stay in range even when it flies much higher. If you are going to use Wi-Fi for live-streaming videos, the range of control drops by some feet. And, as aforementioned, when the battery is low, you just need to click a button on the remote control to ensure the drone heads backs to you safely.

The amount of technology that has gone into building this drone lets you predetermine flight path or ensure the drone follows you everywhere you go. The transmitter comes with an LED display and a bottom-positioned button helps with turning on or off the drone. And with two AA batteries providing power, the remote control won’t need charging too often.

Things We Like the Most

For the price it asks, the drone’s build quality is great. Though the drone and controller are not metal, the solid and high-quality plastic more than makes up for it. It doesn’t feel cheap at all, to say the least. The sturdy build means casual drops would not lead to breaks or dents.

The controls are quite simple and straightforward, which add to the drone’s usability quotient. To launch or land the drone, you’ll invariably need to employ a single button. Not to mention, the 2K camera is a major plus, particularly for the price point.

The battery life is solid and the brushless motor not just delivers more-than-adequate power but is also quite silent at work, which makes using the drone in various scenarios less troublesome. And the impressive range ensures you get to explore places from a fair distant.

Things That Could Be Better

The battery endurance is great, but the time it takes to charge is not. Five to seven hours is some serious waiting time and it could deter certain buyers from even buying this drone. The extra replacement battery offers some solace, but it still wouldn’t make you forget the HS270’s dismal charging speeds.
