Nowadays for a drone, it’s not enough to be equipped with a lot of intelligent flight modes, it also has to be good looking. And the MJX is nailed this requirement. The look of the drone is more professional than the other drones made by the company. Lots of people say that it looks like the DJI Mavic 2 Pro. When you order the drone you can choose from two option: blue or black. But the truth is that only a small part of the top will be black or blue. Otherwise, the drone is covered with a matt black color, and the parts arts are made from ABS plastic, which makes the drone lighter and therefore much easier to control it. But it has a negative effect as well, which is it’s hard to control it in windy weather.
The drone measures 45.2 x 41.7 x 7 cm in his unfolded state, and in his folded condition it measures only 19.5 x 11.5 x 7 cm. So you can fit it even in your pocket if you have a bigger one. Because of the small size of the drone it’s really easy to transport it, so can take with you everywhere in a backpack, therefore, you don’t miss out any of the opportunities given to you.
The remote control has a nice design with a phone holder included. You can find on the remote control two joysticks and three control buttons for making photos, videos and lock the drone. All the commands on the remote control are very intuitive and you can learn them fast. In the middle, there is an LCD display that shows you all the important pieces of information. You can see informations about battery lever, altitude, battery level, speed, signal strength, GPS mode, distance against Home Point, and many others. With all this information you can ensure your drone safety, so it won’t go too far from you and won’t run out of batteries.
The drone’s camera is a 2K Ultra HD camera with a 2048 x 1152 pixel resolution. The camera is movable and you can have a 110-degree moving angle. The photos and videos are stored on a memory card that can be upgraded up to 32GB.
- Follow me mode
With this mode you can lock the drone’s camera to a chosen object and the drone will follow it as much as he can and as fast as it can from a constant distance. So he will do all his best to give you smooth and enjoyable footage from anything you want.
- Tap Fly
This is a very useful flight mode for vloggers but using this feature you can make smooth videos anytime. With this feature, you just have to tap the drone next direction on the screen and your little friend will fly in that direction.
- Point of interest
You have a mode where you can set any object as a point of interest, that means that the drone will fly around that object in continuous circles. With this feature, you can make pretty cool videos and effects without making any effort. You can change the point of interest anytime in the settings.
- 4-in-1 Responsive Esc
This is basically a speed controller that makes the racing aircraft easier to maneuver. So if you go at a high speed you don’t have to worry about the drone, just about your flying skills.
This is a very smart drone and the price is really affordable as well. You won’t get the best camera quality but if you’re not a cameraman I don’t think this will be a problem. The flight time is pretty good, and with a powerful motor like that, you can have pretty much fun.
