MJX X401H FPV Quadcopter Drone : Four Stars

Good quality, nice price, great features.

Update on review* still haven’t seen the gold quadcopter but since we received a black on as well, i played around with the connections, if you’re video isn’t connecting to your cell phone, unplug and plug both adapters that connect to the drone and camera body. First impressions – well packaged and easily assembled but with man small screws in the bags. Need to be cautious when opening up bags and dumping them out. You’ll need them, all of them. I’d recommend to charge even though it comes with a decent charge but doesn’t last long and responds better once charged. Controller is easy to operate and it seems to start up just fine but occasionally had to restart power to either the controller or drone. After set up, i attempted to download application, found out the one on the android market isn’t the most recent; you must go to their website and download the correct application – the drone connects via wifi but never seems to communicate with the drone when connected on phone. I have a samsung galaxy s7, so i figured it would, but never did. Couldn’t get video or camera capture nor controlling from the phone to work. This was a rather large let down for me being the camera and video was my main purpose of having one of these.

Bought this for my dad for chirstmas, after studying and learning it’s features it’s fairly easy to operate.

I’ve been a recreational flyer for about three years. Overall, a good beginner drone. Camera connectivity is spotty. If there is a signal loss with the controller, it keeps going, going, going, gone. All mjx models have a fly away issue. This is my third mjx drone, 2nd camera (this one didn’t work at all). My first ran away on its maiden flight. My second is being repaired. My third (this model) just went rouge. Luckily i was able to steer it away from restricted areas.

So i want to start out off by saying that whilst i have extended appreciated drones and quadcopters, i have not essentially flown a single far more than a handful of times, so i am a novice to them, but think about myself technologically savvy normally. This distinct drone will take about 40 minutes to demand, and has about a seven minute flight time. On top of that, you are meant to get a 10 moment split between flights, so if you are wanting for just one to use for extended sessions, this may not be your best guess, but if you’re all right with shorter jaunts, this one particular may go well with you just great. The kit’s content’s contains:one x x401h rc quadcopter drone (12. ninety five inches)1 x transmitter (demands 4x aa batteries, which are not involved)one x c4005 fpv camera1 x cellular cellphone holder1 x screwdriver1 x 7. 4v 350mah li-po battery1 x micro usb charging cable4 x spare blades1 x user handbook (english)the consumer manual is really detailed, and i will acknowledge that for a novice, it was a good deal of facts to take in. In essence you can fly the drone in one particular of three approaches: you can use the included distant command, or you can use the remote command in tandem with your mobile phone (so you can get a reside online video feed of the camera from the drone), or you can use your mobile phone to handle it straight. For possibly of the previous two solutions, you will will need to obtain an application from the app retailer in buy to do so. I did not have considerably of a challenge locating and downloading the application, but i did have some challenges connecting it. I was in a position to hook up it to the drone by using wifi, but it occasionally misplaced connectivity, sufficient so that i most well-liked to handle the drone with the remote. As these kinds of, if you’re wanting for a drone to use for a ton of photography, this could possibly not be your ideal wager. The camera statements to be hd, but it is most likely no far more than 720hd, but i wasn’t equipped to locate the correct specs mentioned. In any case, to get it up and jogging you will require to put in four of your individual aa batteries into the remote management (they are not involved) and to do some light assembly of the provided items of the package.

I am worse than a newbie — i am a rank newbie. I browse and analyzed the manual very a little bit, prior to i attempted the maiden flight. I was fearful of a intense crash and burn up. But, the minimal drone performed just like the ad mentioned it would. It was pretty predictable and quite steady. I imagine the minor drone is a real ‘hoot’ and enjoyment to fly and also easy to fly.

The camera goes out of vary prolonged ahead of the drone goes out of management selection – a tiny disappointing.

Very great drone, appreciate the altitude hold, incredibly continuous. A minor intricate to discover the controls, but flys pretty properly. The camera and app that you obtain are really neat, array not also considerably though, but. Am in the courtyard, so that may possibly be a issue. Battery everyday living quick and s significantly have not been able to uncover any replacements. Purchased the four hundred batteries by error and they are three. four, so took batteries from a holy stone drone and spliced in the connector. It functions good but do not fit in compartment, so velcroed on to camera.

  • Fast flyer, so fast it’s gone before you know it.
  • Nice starter drone with altitude hold.
  • Great features small price

It is very small and should not be flown in heavier wind. I noticed that it did become unstable when a moderate breeze caught it. The photography feature works well, but i need some practice.

    1. These drones are not worth the money. I bought two of these for xmas. First time flying with my son today, his shot up into the sky, quickly went out of remote range, and sailed off to parts unknown, never to be seen again. Mine, despite trying to correct the problem, seems to be stuck permanently trying to do a 3d roll, so it can’t get off the ground, and if you try to help out up into the air, it just rolls over and dives straight into the ground. Fundo yourself a favor and find anything else to spend your money on.

    The camera goes out of range long before the drone goes out of control range – a little disappointing.

    Very nice drone, love the altitude hold, very steady. A little complicated to learn the controls, but flys very well. The camera and app that you download are pretty neat, range not too far though, but. Am in the courtyard, so that may be a factor. Battery life short and s far have not been able to find any replacements. Bought the 400 batteries by mistake and they are 3. 4, so took batteries from a holy stone drone and spliced in the connector. It works great but do not fit in compartment, so velcroed onto camera.
