Motors

Brushless

The JJRC X7 is one of my top drones under $200 for a reason.

For more reasons, in fact. 

From the powerful brushless motors, to the camera that can be swiveled and the precise GPS, this drone is quite a treat.

In this review we’ll go over why I rate it so high and why it does well the things that it’s meant for.

What to look for in A camera drone

Drone stability

Usually, when it comes to more advanced camera drones, they come with a way to stabilize the drone on the spot. I’m talking about GPS or optical flow cameras.

JJRC X7: GPS + GLONASS

Battery life

Battery life for camera drones should be at least 10 minutes per flight.

Take in account spare batteries!

JJRC X7: 15 min is quite a lot

Range

Flight range can really change what sorts of images you can capture.

JJRC X7: 350m and even more

 

Camera

Camera resolution isn’t everything. Colors, sharpness and bitrate are very important for the overall image.

JJRC X7: 1080p, video sample bellow

Image Stabilization

If I had to pinpoint the most important factor in a camera drone, it would be Image Stabilization. A 4k unstable camera has worse results than a gimbal stabilized 720p one.

C-Fly Dream: no stabilization, moving camera

JJRC x7 Price and specs

Although not a very complex drone, the X7 is very well built and does the basic things quite well.

It does come with a few basic flight modes like return to home, follow me and circle around. But no waypoints this time. 

However I consider waypoint flight as quite useless.

Here’s what you get in the package:

  • a 2600mah battery
  • the drone
  • transmitter
  • spare propellers
  • user manual

Camera quality and app

The image above is the swivable camera of the JJRC x7, a spare piece to be more precise. As you can see there are already spare parts online, and that’s always a good thing in case of a crash.

Another important to mention element is the fact that it comes with 5g wifi 802.11ac so you will need a phone capable of finding that wifi, or else you will not see the image itself at all.

You will however be able to record the footage on the Micro SD card that fits in the slot situated on the side of the drone.
