When folded, the drone is only 13 x 13 x 16.5cm, meaning it can fit practically any backpack. Unfolded it becomes a large drone (30 x 30 x 17.5cm).

Above average max control range and flight time

JJRC is a drone manufacturer that takes great consideration to how far a drone can fly, knowing most pilots consider control range as a very important spec.

This JJRC H51 Rocket Drone is no exception, this large drone can fly as far as 100 meters without losing range (depends on flight conditions). Powered by a 3.7V 1000mAh battery, H51 can stay in air for periods of 8 to 9 minutes (per battery). Of course, if it carries extra weight, the flight time will be shortened.
