JX 1601 Foldable Quadcopter – How Small Can It Get?
When it comes to small drones, we have mini-drones or drones with foldable arms. Well, JX 1601 Foldable Quadcopter is a mini-drone with foldable arms. This quad will steal the attention of those that are looking for a drone that can be easily lost in a drawer, because while folded, it is only 6.5 x 6.5 cm.
A Mini Drone for Everyone
While most of the drones are not recommended for children, this small toy was made to be safe in the hands of a kid with little flying experience. Thanks to its multiple fly speeds and propeller guards, the JX can be flown safely indoor. As most of the mini-drones we have to be careful when playing outside. Don’t forget that the drone can be easily influenced by bad weather due to its small size and light weight.
Taking a look at its design, the shape of the drone reminds me of DJI Spark. Of course, the technology and price have nothing in common. The JX1601 Foldable Quadcopter with 2MP camera costs $41 and the 0.3MP version costs $34.
Besides the tiny size, the quad has a 2MP camera with angle adjustment. For a drone this small, 2MP is enough, but the video can’t be recorded without a phone and it has only 20 fps.
The quad uses a 3.7V 200mAh Battery, which will give you about 5 minutes of flyght. The package does not include an extra battery, so take in consideration spending a little money for a second battery.
Like almost every drone, this one also have Headless Mode and Altitude Mode. Headless Mode helps you fly without worrying about its orientation and Altitude Mode makes the drone hover in place.
