Fly it with G-Sensor Wireless Remote Control

Because the best part of owning a drone is flying it, JJRC X66 enhances the whole experience by including its own G-sensor remote control. This command allows the drone to move the same way the controller moves. If you move the remote to the left, drone will move in the same direction.

Film Christmas Day with WiFi FPV Camera

Fun and Affordable Racing Drone - FuriBee X215 Pro for $159


Take part of one of the most growing trends in the drone universe. Start participating in drone races with your own FuriBee X215 Pro, a fast and great looking 215mm racer.

Great Looking Tiny Racer

FuriBee is a very cute looking quadcopter with pink three-blades and purple brushless motors. It falls under the 215mm category, meaning it mostly participates in indoor races with other drones of the same size. However, FuriBee will stand out in the crowd thanks to its beautiful aesthetics.

High-performance Race Components

Thanks to some of the latest FPV racing components, FuriBee performs amazingly well when compared to other 215mm drones. Some of these components are the advanced flight control system FuriBee F4 FC. Plus, some quite effective electronic speed controllers, 4-in-1 BLHeli S 30A DShot that control the speed of the brushless motors. The four 2206 brushless motors are much more powerful and durable than common brushed motors.

Capture the Race with Built-in FPV Camera

When racing a drone an especial camera is needed to capture and transmit the live video in the required quality. The built-in 1200TVL CCD camera captures and displays good image quality, fit to fly in great conditions. It also comes with a 5.8GHz video transmitter and pagoda antenna capable of transmitting without latency (image delay).

Flight Time & Control Distance

FuriBee X15 Pro has a maximum control distance of 1500 meters. In respect to flight time it depends on the batteries being used (supports a wide variety).
