The Ares Ethos HD is the ideal platform for budget-minded customers in the market for a larger than mini size quad to take high quality aerial photos and video. The size of the Ethos HD makes it easy to see in flight and the Aegis 6-axis Flight Stability System (FSS) gives it the control you need to get the quality footage you want. A high quality camera that films 1080 HD video at 30 FPS or 720 HD video at 60 FPS comes installed on the Ethos HD along with an Anti-Vibration Mount that helps hold the camera steady so you can avoid shakes and bumps in your video footage. The Ethos HD even includes a high speed memory card and a USB card reader so you can view your videos and photos nearly anywhere. With all these features coming standard on the Ethos HD, it’s easy to see why it’s the fastest route to quality aerial video and photography!
When you’re ready to take a break from filming and just have some fun, the Ethos HD has you covered. Like its little brother, the Ares QX 130, the Ethos HD comes with an integrated LED light system and is capable of doing 360° flips at the touch of a button. Plus, the same fun accessories (Rocket Launcher, Water Blaster, Bubble Machine, and Winch Unit) that can be purchased separately for the QX 130 – also work with the Ethos HD!
The Ethos HD is RTF (Ready-To-Fly), so it arrives 100% factory-assembled and everything needed to fly and take video and photos is included in the box. In addition to the Ethos HD airframe, camera, and anti-vibration mount, you get a 2.4GHz standard size 4-channel transmitter (with 2 additional channels to control the camera), a 1200mAh 2-cell 25C LiPo battery, an AC charger for convenient charging from almost any outlet, and even the AA batteries needed to power up the transmitter. With nothing extra to buy, you can begin taking high quality aerial videos and photos within minutes of opening the box!
Ideal Video Platform: The Ares Advantage Ethos HD is the ideal platform for budget-minded customers in the market for a large quad to take high quality aerial photos and video.

Easy FPV Option: An optional FPV package that includes a 4 1/2" LCD screen that attaches directly to the transmitter and receives live FPV video footage from a 720p HD camera, is available. The FPV combo (AZSZ2542) also includes an anti-glare shield that helps you watch your live FPV feed without glare even when flying outside on sunny days.

Integrated LED Lights: The Ares Advantage Ethos HD comes with an integrated LED light system controlled from the transmitter that helps maintain orientation and also makes the Ethos visible when flying in the dark.

Ares Ethos HD RTF Quadcopter w/HD Camera
I have purchased about 4 of these at the past higher price. Pros- Big.Easy to fly. Easy to see for orientation. Can carry a heavy payload for its size. Cons- It has brushed motors which wearout quickly and unevenly causing crashes. Radio transmission range is very short. This is a rebranded (improved?) Quad from WLToys at a greatly inflated price.
