You won't miss the Heli-Max FORM500 Utility Drone with its orange landing gear pods. This 500-scale quadcopter is designed to carry a payload – featuring a load capacity of 2.2 pounds and mounting rails to make adding accessories easy. To get you started, a basic mount for a GoPro HERO or similar form factor action camera is included. This bundle comes assembled and ready-to-fly. The 8-channel TTX810TS transmitter (radio controller), a 5000 mAh LiPo flight battery with charger, and four self-tightening props all come included. You'll just need four AA batteries to power the transmitter.
Flight Control Modes
Intelligent Orientation Control
A "headless mode" which allows pilots to fly without having to orient the drone – whichever direction the right stick is moved is the direction the FORM500 will move
The "home point" is set to the GPS coordinates where the FORM500 originally took off. Return-to-Home allows you to bring the quadcopter back to this location using autopilot – great for beginners who fear losing control of the aircraft. For even more peace of mind, the flight controller can be programmed to return home automatically if the battery drops below a critical level
Automatically lands the FORM500 and powers it down. This feature can be used in conjunction with Return-to-Home for full autopilot failsafe
Locks the FORM500 at fixed altitude while other controls operate normally
Enables a fixed hover. GPS is employed to compensate for any wind drift for more precise positioning than is possible otherwise
Radio Control System
Tactic TTX810TS Transmitter Included
This 8-channel transmitter (radio controller) features frequency-skipping SLT technology to help ensure a reliable signal even when faced with interference. The TTX810TS powers from four AA batteries, which are available separately

Rails allow you to attach the included camera mount or third party accessories. With a payload capacity of 2.2 pounds, the FORM500 is no slouch
A mount is included that is suitable for a GoPro HERO or other action camera with a similar body design
A single screw allows you to fold down the prop arms for a more compact profile that is easier to transport and store
Orange plastic balls on landing gear aid in visibility
5000 mAh LiPo flight battery plus AC charger included
