Holy Stone HS120D Auto Return Home Review

The Holy Stone HS120D FPV Drone is one of the most innovative and futuristic high definition systems on the market today. It is the first and only drone with full HD FPV capabilities in a FPV Drone. It will provide FPV to other units that use this technology by having HD programming for all its features.

Well, of course, the other unit won't be following you, but still, if you are not seeing a problem then you are missing a lot. When you have hundreds of thousands of dollars, money is always being spent on features that you will never use.

I find it so amazing when someone wants to spend a lot of money to buy a new aircraft with high definition camera and you wonder why that is necessary. It is not necessary to spend that much money to get something that you can buy off the shelf at a fraction of the cost.

A lot of manufacturers want you to believe that a high definition camcorder and a full HD helmet mounted camera is a must to fly a drone. Well, in my opinion, you don't even need those to be able to buy your own racing drone. But, you will never hear that from any of the manufacturers.

Now, I know a lot of companies are interested in selling this kind of equipment and I am sure you can hear this same thing over again, but you have to realize that most of us will never get the chance to fly our real aircraft in high definition. So, this makes sense.

Most of us won't fly in high definition anyway, so why buy a high definition camera that most of us will never fly in? You will be fine.

What they don't tell you is that when you buy a helmet mounted camera for real, you are also going to buy the mounts and the tape dispensers and a lot of other things. Some of these things are not necessary for your helmet mounted camera, but hey, you can buy them on your own if you want.

All these things that are not necessary for your high definition equipment are going to cost you thousands of dollars. Yes, there are a lot of companies out there that can buy all these things, but that would mean having to cut a lot of corners on their equipment.

If you are new to this sport and just want to get into flying UHD, you don't need all the bells and whistles and you certainly don't need the latest and greatest and you should probably stay away from them. Stick with what you are good at and you will be fine.

There are a lot of people who are involved in the field of drone racing and some of these tech leaders just can't resist the urge to buy the latest and greatest piece of equipment that they think will make everything better. Of course, as the old saying goes, you only get what you pay for.

It is only because of technology like this that we can fly the drones that we do today. We need to have this technological prowess to stay competitive and give us a chance to win big.

As far as I am concerned, high definition is great and if you are serious about racing then you should get yourself one or two. But, unless you are in an area where you can fly it, I would stay away from it until the price comes down and everyone is doing it.
