JJRC JJPRO X2: the first racing drone is cheaper than 90 dollars


Quadrocopter JJRC JJPRO X2 belongs to the class of racing "drones" and is intended not only for people who have certain experience in handling aircraft of this kind, but also for beginners.

Quadrocopter weighs just over 300 grams, which is a very good indicator for a racing model, because the lighter the device, the faster and more maneuverable it will be in the air. Specialization in the "drones" is quite narrow, for the sake of weight loss and improvement in dynamics, it even deprived the camera. However, nothing prevents the user from adding the camera himself, selecting a version with a convenient mount.

In terms of dimensions JJRC JJPRO X2 refers to the middle category - "drone" with dimensions of 35.5x35.5x12 cm is not very compact, but it does not take much space, even if you have to transport the device in assembled form. The case is made of plastic, the design (in comparison with the model X1) almost did not change, except for the reinforced design, which significantly reduces the risk of breakage in the fall. For the same purpose, a set of protections for propellers is also attached to the "drone", but its installation is voluntary and many pilots refuse protection for the sake of reducing the weight of the apparatus.

The assembly of the newly purchased JJRC JJPRO X2 does not take much time. From the owner of the quadrocopter, you need to tighten the screws on the motors, install propellers and protection, insert a battery for 1200 mAh, which provides up to 20 minutes of flight, connect it to the "drones" and that's it. True, just before take-off, you'll need to do two more things - get out to free space and calibrate the 6-axis gyro. Running drones in the room is highly discouraged for security reasons, and without calibrating the gyro its engines will not be launched at all.

JJRC JJPRO X2 is suitable for flights at any time of day, as the quadrocopter is equipped with bright LED lights. Well and the main thing its advantage - certainly, brushless engines. They improve the controllability of drones and are a distinguishing feature of the racing models. To try such engines in the JJRC case offers for $ 89, and the GearBest store adds a coupon to them for a discount of $ 5. To date, JJRC JJPRO X2 is almost the only quadrocopter with brushless motors cheaper than $ 90, which makes it especially interesting for beginners in races on drone.
