I really want to review this so anyways let’s get into the video all right. So let’s talk about what you get with this drone. First of all, the drone itself and it comes with a gimbal guard on it right there there’s the battery. Obviously you also have the controller it’s a dji copy. The controller is you also get extra blades, the carrying case, which you’ve just seen and a mini screwdriver, as well as the instruction booklet which i don’t have the instruction book with me. But you get the instruction book with it. So let’s take a look at the specs we’re going to give this guy a quick overview. First of all, it’s a gps drone with optical flow positioning. You can’t see right now, but if you take the gimbal guard off like this, it comes off kind of difficult, but there we go. It is a two axis gimbal, so that’s, pretty sweet we’ll definitely be checking out. How smooth that this footage is. It has a range of one kilometer to go along with a advertised 30 minute flight time and it shoots 6k photos in 2.7 k videos. It weighs about 500 grams. It uses brushless motors. As you can see, this drone is also foldable, so let’s unfold. It like this the front arms fold out. First, then, the back one and the front and the back. So this is what it looks like unfolded. Put this guy down. I got the green version.
You can also get the orange version um. So we just talked about brushless motors foldable um. It records the video to a micro sd card. You could always just use the recording straight from your phone, but there you’re going to get dropped, frames and it’s not going to be as smooth. So i would always go with the footage from the micro sd card and the top speed is seven meters per second all right guys. So let’s talk about this drone right here. The in flight features that you get with this drone, so we have auto takeoff and auto landing, which is that button right there. Obviously this one’s the power button. There is a follow me function. You also have orbit and wave points. You have headless mode and there is a calibration button on the controller that is right here, and this start button is to arm the motors as well as this button right here is for photos and videos also really quickly guys. So um calibration process is very easy. The app runs you right through it once you hit the calibration button, then you would spin this drone 360 degrees and then it will beep, which means at that point. You would angle it up and then you would spin it until it beeps again so that’s very easy and then you’re done um. Just so you know, once you hit the start button, you can obviously just take it up or you can hit the auto take off and then, if you want to land, you can hit the auto land or you can just hold this stick down like that, and It will land itself all right.
Just so you know um, the app is h, hfun fly and it is available from the app store and from the google play store, so it is both compatible with apple and android users. Personally, i will be flying this today with my iphone xr right, so that’s, just a quick overview of the advertised specs of this drone and what we are supposed to be expecting from it. So let’s get right into the flight test, all right guys so we’re outside now and we’re, going to take this guy for a quick flight test. We’Ll get some photos and videos and we can test out some of its features, but anyways let’s get into the flight test all right guys so we’ll start off by putting the battery inside the drone right here wrong way. Here we go push until it clicks like that. Okay, next return, the drone we’re going to turn on the controller. Now all right. Next up is this button right here in the corner. It is the compass calibration button, so we’re gon na hit that give this guy a little bit of a spin. Okay, now we’ll turn it up like this and spin it again all right, two beeps now we’re going to connect to the wi fi from my phone. All right guys so um we’re, connected to wi fi, make sure you take this little piece, pull it out. Your phone will go in here, so let’s do that and open up the app got it all right so we’re in like that, there we go and now, if you want to arm the motors you hit, this start button right there.
The motors are – and we can give this guy a little bit – push up like that, so it’s up in the air now here’s how you land it all you need to do is hold this. Stick down and watch it align it go it’s going slightly down, it’s, going to sense the ground, all i’m doing is holding it down and there you go all right guys. So we need to talk about a problem that i’ve had with this drone, and it is pretty important to talk about. This thing does something that we like to call toilet pulling. So just imagine that this right here is the drone. Instead of staying still, it keeps moving around in circles like this, and sometimes the circles get bigger and bigger, which can be a serious problem at some points, this thing was completely out of control and it almost crashed. When i hit return to home, it um just started doing this giant circle, and it would on an angle like this. It looked like it was heading straight down. Luckily i took it out of return to home mode and i pulled it back and up the opposite way, and luckily i didn’t crash it, but this thing was almost crashed, so luckily i didn’t crash it i’ve had experience, though, with flying. So if you’re unexperienced, this thing could have definitely crashed, so i thought it was just a sloppy calibration, so i decided to calibrate it again and once i took it up, it started doing the same thing.
It started toilet bowling again and again. Originally it when i first took it off, it was very smooth. I showed you how to take it off and show you how to land it and i flew it out there and it was doing smooth and it was doing just fine. There was no serious wind speed. It was only blowing at one miles an hour today, although it’s pretty cold outside it’s, only about 30 to 36 degrees out so it’s pretty cold, but um yeah. It just started toilet bowling once i hit return to home and it just kept on doing it. I recalibrated it and it did it again, so that’s pretty that’s, not good guys, although i will say with the two axis gimbal, the footage was pretty stable. The footage that i got anyways. I didn’t fly this thing for too long. So if you want me to fly this thing again, make sure to smash the like button, and i will do a second video on this i’ll. Do a flight test so make sure to hit the like button. The goal is 25 likes. So if we hit that then i’ll do a flight test for this drone, but anyways i’ll show you the footage that we got. We didn’t get much of it, but i’ll show you the footage by the way guys. I would just like to tell you that this is not my first experience buying a jjrc drone. I bought the jjrc x12.
If you don’t know what that drone is i’ll put it on the screen right now. Okay, so i bought the jjrc x12 and that one i couldn’t even get that one to fly. It wouldn’t pick up a single satellite and the functions in the app wouldn’t work, um the the app wasn’t even available on any android devices. So i tried it with my uh samsung tablet and that wouldn’t work either tried it with my apple ipad and with my iphone xr, and i couldn’t get it to fly on any of those with the jjrc x12. So this is my second jjrc drone and i will say almost crashing. This drone and shattering into pieces was not a pleasant experience. It was pretty stressful guys so for this drone, i guess i’ll just say, buy it at your own risk, because there is a chance that it could just be awesome and work perfectly for you fly smoothly, but my specific model is toilet bowling like crazy and it’s. Just not working properly it’s getting. It was very bad guys. Just trust me with this, not a fun experience at all. So, like i said by your own risk – and i don’t know how often this issue may occur – i’m – not going to completely trash this drone because i’m going to tell you it is pretty good. The camera is great, it’s got a bunch of nice features and the gimbal is actually very smooth.
This produces very smooth footage, but i will say: it’s very shocking it’s, not good that this thing toilet bowls toilet bowls like crazy and it’s super unstable in the air. So that is pretty scary, so buy at your own risk. Another thing guys for this drone it’s one that’s very weird: you can’t find this thing on amazon, or at least i can’t find this thing on amazon or walmart. So your pro, if you’re gon na order, you’re gon na order from one of these chinese companies like banggood.com, so i’ll leave a link for their for this drone from banggood.com in the description below. If you want to buy this thing, but thank you for watching.
