This JJRC H11wh review is going to be as honest as possible, and therefore I'll be featuring both the advantages and disadvantages of the drone.

Being an upgraded version of the previous model, it's rather new and has a few interesting features that make it worth the money.

Drone Specs and flights time around

The altitude hold feature helps it hover well better than most drones I've flown at this price range and the camera also has some nice feats I'll talk about in a moment.

In case you don't want to go through this entire article, I've also made a video review where I go over all the features and details.

What's in the package?

 

The pacakge I got from gearbest.com arrived well and it contained pretty much all that one could need. However, if you want to fly this for longer than a few months, I recommend you to get some spare motors (that can be easily changed) and an extra battery or two.

full-package

Here are the contents of the package:

  • the quadcopter itself
  • a 360p camera that can be attached to it
  • a very well built transmitter
  • the battery
  • a set of spare propellers
  • landing legs
  • prop guards
  • charging USB cable
  • a small screwdriver

Battery and power

Judging by the battery size, I was pretty disappointed and expected a very limited flying time.

 

However, the battery actually has 1100 mAh ( 3.7 v). The lower voltage makes it a bit less powerful than other drones like the MJX x600, but it can fly for quite some time.

But even so, I must say it flies pretty good in speed mode (there are 3 flying modes).

Design and durability

I was very impressed with how this drone presented itself on the outside.

jjrc-h11-design

I'm not talking so much about the design, but rather more about the materials, which are pretty damn good.It's covered in a rubbery(in a good way) plastic that makes it look very premium and more sturdy.

And when it comes to sturdiness, I've tested that too! Advice: don't fly it inside the house at all!I also tested it by hitting a few trees in the forest (cuz I wanted too, of course) and it didn't even get a scratch.

I give it a 10/10 when it comes to durability, and remember I don't even use the prop guards.A very useful and unique addon is the fact that you have easy access to the motors through specially made compartments so you can change them in case any of them gets damaged.

When it comes to lighting, this drone has it all. There's 5 green LEDs on each side, a big angry red “eye' in front and 2 blue ones in the back.It just can't be lost out of sight at night.

Transmitter

The controller is made from the same high quality material as the drone and it's an actual pleasure to hold in the hands.

I like the design of it even more that the drone itself and it's very smooth to the touch.

A nice thing for newbies is that the control scheme is very well thought out by having clear instructions on what each button does right on the transmitter itself.It requires 3 AAA batteries to work and it doesn't have an LCD screen like most others do.

That's really not a problem in most cases. However, it does feature a flip bracket where the phone can be inserted and put into FPV mode.

There are also speciffic buttons for Photo and video capture and also an SD card slot, but they don't work on this WI-FI version. However, when you connect the Phone to the remote, you can use the app and the phone storage space for videos.

Of course it comes with trimming buttons for all directions, in case your aircraft tends to fly off in a certain way, so you can trim it back to stability.

It has a dedicated START/STOP button to power the motors, after which you'll have to move the left stick upward for take off.

There's also a Headless mode feature that can get you out of trouble if you lost the direction your quadcopter is facing, and it actually works pretty great.

The same button functions as a one key return if you press it for like 2 seconds.The gyros on the drone can also be easily calibrate by the press of a button.

Speaking about gyros, this is an altitude hold quadcopter, so it's only fair to talk about how smooth it can hover and maintain a constant height from the ground. It is indeed the most stable toy drone I've flown until now.

transmitter-buttons

The controller has 2 buttons that, when pressed, change the camera angle in the respective direction(up and down).

This can be very useful for when you want to take a glimpse of yourself, or want to catch a different angle.And I really mean it!

One thing that I hated, on most toy camera drones, is that the camera angle was always the same and I had a very difficult time getting the shots I wanted.

Camera Quality

I was more than impressed with this particular camera.

jjrc-h11-camera-2mp

The footage isn't HD and don't expect much quality from it, but I liked the fact it didn't have any jello and the stability of the drone made for a very well stabilized video, compared to other cheap toys, that is.

I would not use this as a reliable source for recording though, as it's more of a “fun” camera than a high quality one.The ability to change the camera angle mid-flight made for quite some fun shots with myself and it actually felt more like a Dji Phantom than a toy.

The FPV function, just like on most other drones at this price range, has some slight lag, which doesn't make for a good racing drone.

But the live feed transmission is very helpful when trying to adjust the camera so you can get the perfect footage.

These being said, I do recommend this quadcopter for people who want to experience a more stable and longer flight. The build quality is very good and the camera is the most entertaining one I used so far.

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:

how-to-make-money-with-drones

1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

types of drones

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  1.  
  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.

 

How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

  10. I really want this drone!

  11. Looks like a great beginners drone.

  12. I have the JJRC H11C and the only thing I’ve been disappointed with is the camera. It is unfocused and doesn’t product clear images like the ones shown in your review (camera is rated at 2MP). Vendor says they don’t see any issue with the video. Glad yours is working better and looks like a fun drone to fly.

  13. Nice drone.

  14. All my drones are JJrc and no problem with them 😀 very nice products for very nice prices 😉

  15. Nice drone thumbs up ????

  16. Hi i have a h11 drone JJR/C still learning it but any way it kps wanting to flip to the right on take off is there any way i can reset or re calibrate so rotors go at same time my email
    Is brianhose2@hotmail.com im from new zealand
    I did have s helecoptor but unfortinatly my dog jumped at it on take off and crushed it

  17. This net website is seriously a walk-through for all the info you wanted about this and didn’t know who to ask. Glimpse here, and you’ll certainly discover it.

  18. great submit, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite specialists of this sector do not notice this.
    You must proceed your writing. I am confident, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!
