Holy Stone is well known within the beginner drone category, and the latest model marks a new direction and a significant leap in performance and image quality. The Holy Stone HS900 Sirius is a sub-250g model that was released in May 2024 and comfortably competes within the mid-range of the sub-250g drone category. This is a huge upgrade over Holy Stone’s previous sub-250g model — the HS360S — and will undoubtedly gain attention from Holy Stone fans and beginner drone pilots in general.

In terms of flight performance, features and image quality, it’s safe to say that the HS900 is one of the best beginner drones currently available. With this in mind, and considering the reasonable cost of the drone, it could potentially slip into the best drones category. It’s certainly not going to compete with the likes of the DJI Mini 4 Pro which is a much more advanced drone, but it remains a compelling option for beginners and intermediate pilots looking for a small and lightweight UAV.
