Thanks for post MikeK,

My view hang on.Built a website on Hubsan501, but nearly deleted site.Not for general view at this stage.But not happy to go on with review as see on line problems like you mention as in firmware, to me a pain to have to fix on computer.So I am still looking for the perfect deal.The problem I see is no manufacturer listening to flyers like us, they just crank out new models but lack the insight, to what we want and price.  

Interesting that you've been paying attention to the Hubsan 501s, too.  It is definitely a breakthrough drone but, as it seems we've both concluded, the firmware issues (quite a few of those) and the battery deficiency are sufficient cause to hold off.  I'm sure there are a few manufacturers (Syma, I'm hoping) who have their minds on a bird with all of the Hubsan's features but minus those two discouraging deficiencies.  

Bottom line: Considering how far the technology has come since the X5C (GPS, Altitude, FPV, Follow, RTH and Homeless) I'm quite certain it won't be long before we're seeing all of that plus long battery life in quad and controller, and out-of-the-box, no software ("firmware") tinkering needed -- ever.  

The question occurs to me as to why the 501s can't be produced with firmware which is adequate for general out-of-the-box use and never needs "updating" or adjustment?  I can't understand the reason for this obvious problem.  Can you?  If so, please enlighten me.

Well I can not enlighten you at the moment.. hope to soon.But consider this, nothing really to do with rc products.I am trying to buy a laser engraver and cutting machine, yes to engrave and cut out balsa wood designs for a plane idea i have.Now dealing with Chinese companies wanting to know what software i need, is doing my head in as they just do not give me the complete answer..so back to drones and firmware that does not needed to be updated on computer, makes me realize they just do not have it right yet..just my take on things
