Holy Stone HS700 FPV Drone Follow Me Mode
The HS700 Ophelia can fly alongside you, using the GPS system in the remote controller. Like many other follow me mode drones, the HS 700 uses a GPS enabled device such as a mobile phone, tablet or the Ground Station Controller (GSC). The HS700 quadcopter uses the GSC as the transmitter. So the drone is basically programmed to follow the transmitter in the remote controller and to keep the subject in the picture at all times.
Holy Stone HS700 Intelligent Flight Modes
The HS700 has a number of intelligent modes, which make this quadcopter safe, fun, very easy to fly and film with.
HS700 Home Point / RTH Failsafe Mode
The Return to Home function brings the HS700 drone back to the last recorded Home Point, which is the location at which the drone takes off from. If the HS700 GPS signal is available with 7 or more satellites, the home point is recorded. You can then use the Return To Home button on the remote controller to bring the HS700 back to the home point. The Return to Home feature is automatically triggered in the following situation.
- Low voltage
- Loss of transmitter signal for more than 6 seconds
Note: Read the Holy Stone HS700 manual and become familiar with all its features and especially how the Return To Home failsafe feature works. For example, the HS700 will only descend rather than return to the home point if there is no GPS signal or if there is a weak GPS signal.
HS700 Drone Altitude Hold
Overall, altitude hold mode allows the HS700 drone to maintain a consistent altitude. This feat is achieved by analyzing pressure data provided by the barometric pressure sensor, and if installed, by an ultrasonic sensor.
HS700 Drone Custom Flight Path
Using the Ophelia GPS app, you simply draw a route on screen and the HS700 will move in that direction or in a circle and send back real time video to you.
HS700 Drone Take Off And Landing
The HS700 is very easy to fly with take off and landing using just one button click.
HS700 Headless Mode
Using Headless Mode, the forward direction is the direction which the head of the drone faces when the drone takes off.
Holy Stone HS700 GPS App
The HS700 GPS app has a user friendly interactive interface, allowing the drone to take off and land in just one click. You can also manually set the flying height, flying distance, and the flying radius, so that Ophelia only listens to you.
