If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that one of the main reasons I love flying drones is because of the camera they come with. Drones with HD cameras such as the JJRC X11 let you see the world from above and experiences places from completely new perspective.
This can provide an exhilarating experience and this what the JJRC X11 2K camera drone can give you.
You can shoot 2K videos at 30fps and take good aerial images with its 8MP sensor and with its wide-angle lens, you can capture a lot more details in these images and video fooatge.
It still amazes me that this drone costs less than $200, the 2K camera is alone worth the price, the images are really high quality and the video streaming is very good. There is some jello effect when live stream to your smartphone but you’ll hardly notice it, plus the camera is mounted on a 1 axis gimbal which will help minimise distortion in your images and videos.
The FPV range is between 300-500 meters in good conditions, this is a pretty good range and the range can be expanded to 800 meters with newer smartphone devices.
It’s not a professional camera and your images and videos will not win you any prizes but for less than $300, this a pretty good 2K camera drone and well worth the price.
However, if you want an affordable 4K camera drone that can record professional grade video footages in 4K, I recommend you take a look on the section of drones on Gearbest there are some stunning 4K drones at reasonable prices.
Intelligent Flight Modes
As you would expect from an advanced modern drone like the JJRC X11, it comes with several intelligent flight modes. Not only will these flight modes make it easier to fly but you will also be able to take better images and videos as you will not have to concentrate too much on controlling the drone.
The JJRC comes with the following intelligent flight modes;
Tap Fly – Draw a path on the drone app and it will automatically follow that path and come back home. A real coo way to fly across your favourite area and take images and photographs videos without any hassle.
Point of Interest – You can lock the drone on a position in your app and the drone will orbit the position from a height and distance of your choosing.
Follow me – Pretty much self-explanatory, in this mode the drone will follow you, a coo way to record yourself when going for a hike or bike ride.
In addition to these flight modes, the drone also comes with one-button home return, this a really useful feature if you ever lose sight of your drone. This home return feature is also automatically activated if you ever lose connection with the drone or when your battery charge starts to get low.
This minimises the risk of losing your drone in mid-flight.
As you would expect from a JJRC drone, it fly’s well, it hovers accurately and can maintain a steady altitude, which makes it easier to take videos and photographs. The drones bulky design also makes it safe to fly in windy conditions but only do so if you are an experienced drone pilot. The drone has ultrasonic and optical flow sensors on its belly, these sensors will help the drone to hover accurately when there is no GPS signal in the area. This also means, you can fly the drone indoors, but as the drone is quite large when unfolded, the indoor area would have to be big, otherwise you’ll just end up crashing into everything.
I really like this drone, JJRC have released some really good drones over the years and the JJRC X11 is one of their best. The best feature is definitely its 2K camera with 8MP sensor, you will be able to take some stunning aerial shots with this camera and with its 5G WiFi technology, you will be able to stream high-quality live video straight to your smartphone.
