Cheerson CX-91 Jumper Quadcopter Review
A drone that has it all: good for beginners, but also powerful and performant enough to meet the expectations of experienced pilots, fit for racing and simply flying too, while not breaking the bank. This is the Cheerson CX-91 Jumper Quadcopter. Cheerson has already mastered the market once, when they launched their nano models. Now, they are trying to replicate that success with the CX-91 Jumper model. With such versatility, its configuration is also just as impressive, so let’s dive in and see how is it possible for a drone to be so complex.
|Dimensions||240 x 250 x 80 mm|
|Weight||420 gr (battery included)|
|Battery||11.1V 1600 mAh Lithium Ion battery|
|Flight time||12 min.|
|Charging time||90 min.|
|Top speed||80 km/h|
The best way to describe this drone is that it is a flying racing car. Its dimensions enter the above average category, while everything is made from one single piece of reinforced plastic. One disadvantage in this case can be that if you happen to break one rotor arm, you will need to replace the whole body frame. On the bright side, this drone has pretty high durability, therefore if you use it to race, you won’t really need to worry about dropping it a few times. Even though you might end up needing to repair something (which is highly unlikely), it will be an easy process, as it is really simple to disassemble and then putting back together.
Another great thing is that Cheerson CX-91 Jumper is ready to fly as soon as you get it out of the box, without any additional settings needed, the only thing that might need checking being the tightness of the motors. Because of this, the drone is as good for experienced pilots as it is for beginners.
For an above average drone, you need an above average battery. It allows 12 minutes of flight time, while requiring only 90 minutes to fully recharge, so you don’t have to contain your excitement too much. Even if you happen to run out of battery while flying, this quadcopter has a built-in safety system, which will guide it to land safely on the ground, avoiding any harsh crashes.
The specifications of the camera aren’t exactly that great, but if taking videos is not your main reason for getting this drone, then you should be satisfied. The quality is great for FPV purposes though, recording at a resolution of 720p and transmitting live to the screen of the controller. If this isn’t enough for you, there are also other models which definitely will meet your expectations.
Speaking of it, it has a frequency of 2.4 GHz and 32 channels, allowing you to have full control of the drone for a distance up to 300 meters.
Also, there are different modes that you can activate through the controller. First, let’s talk about the Manual and Stabilize, as they are the most basic ones. Manual is great for pilots who gained quite some experience overtime, as in this case you have total control over the drone. Meaning, you can also perform a series of maneuvers, like loops, barrel rolls or Immelmann’s.
Of course, even with the highest experience, you also need to be mindful over the weather conditions around you. On the other hand, Stabilize will come in handy for beginners, as in this mode the drone will balance itself without any specific command needed, therefore making it easier to fly. The best thing about this drone is that you can get it as a newbie in the quadcopter domain and it is extremely helpful to learn on, and as you become more and more skilled over time, the drone is able to evolve with you.
Among these modes you can also activate the hover one, which is great for when you feel like turning the drone into a little acrobat. In addition, you have the basic, more simplistic techniques available, like sideward flight, down, up and backward.
An interesting thing about this controller is that you can’t really program it. This might be for two reasons: one, the company wanted to make sure that in competitions, their drone can not be resetted through hacking the controller or two, it was just a way to cut some production costs.
First things first, the speed is incredible. Even so, other aspects clearly aren’t neglected, as you can turn it without any issues, fly through obstacles and around pylons at full speed. Of course, this can be done flawlessly only by someone who has been flying quadcopters for quite some time
Another thing to look forward to if you decide to get this quadcopter are the, rather stylish, VR glasses included, which aid the FPV experience. They are connected to the video monitor of the transmitter through a small USB cable, which can double as a charger. They also have two built-in video screens, one for each eye, but because the drone has only one camera, a 3D image is not quite possible, also they don’t block the vision completely, as you can still see a bit of your feet and the sky while you are wearing them. Even so, guess what? These glasses can also be used to watch movies, if you connect them to your TV. How great is that?
Overall, if you were to compare Cheerson CX-91 Jumper to others similar from a price point of view, this one offers the most features while also being highly budget friendly. While it isn’t the perfect model to take videos and photos with, it will surely take you on an adventure with all the great specifications it has. If you were left impressed by the whole description, we invite you to test it out for yourself, by getting it for a great deal on Gearbest. We wish you a happy and safe flight, without any serious incidents! Also, we look forward to your opinion on this simply amazing drone.
