The utility of the camera-quad is difficult to replicate otherwise. Where the old standard methods can accomplish the chores of the robo-vac, robo-mower and even the poolbot, unless one can train a hummingbird to carry a GoPro, the quad is really the only game in town. Of course a hummingbird couldn’t carry a GoPro, so you’d likely need 10 or more to even lift the Hero 4 Session, and good luck getting them to pan or tilt or even do retakes. Up to about 4 years ago, the notion of aerial photography was entirely beyond the scope of the pixel-packing consumer.
Now consumer-grade fliers abound and they sport cameras big enough for a helicopter and small enough for a couple of committed hummingbirds. A camera brute like the Walkera QR X900 can heft over 20 lbs. of payload and deploy a parachute in instances of aerial discord. The DJI T600 Inspire 1 shoots broadcast 4k with a 3-axis gimbal while the almost nonexistent Cheerson CX-10C carries a camera and can land on your hand.
The MJX X300C is that rare toy flier that offers FPV flight for the price of a couple of movie tickets and drinks, maybe a bucket of popcorn too. It’s a sharp looking little quad with a low profile and sleek design, and is packed with features. The 2.4 GHz controller is hobby-grade with an LCD screen and adjustable mount for smartphone. As would be expected with a toy, the FPV lags and 0.3MP video footage is dodgy, but to be fair, the same can be said about many more expensive quads that aren't toys. It has the standard bells and whistles -- headless mode, one-key return, and the ubiquitous 6-axis gyro for the always popular stable flight. With a signal range of over 100 yards, the MJX X300C will deliver upwards of 9 minutes in the air, though turning on the camera will necessarily reduce flight time. It's 3D flight-worthy, capable of flips and rolls, and it lights up brightly for flying nightly.
This is the easiest RC control quadcopter ever! My 7 year old loves it a lot because he can share this copter with me.
The super cool drone. The quality of plastic is 10/10, stable flight even if I'm a novice pilot... This is my first purchase and I am very happy.
The MJX X300 is my favorite quad to take flight with. The product is built with quality parts and those parts were used to build one of the best quadcopter you can purchase.
I've really enjoyed this quadcopter. It's engaging and agile to fly, and the built in camera is decent... Seriously good fun and doesn't break the bank.
Pretty cool little quad for the price. The Wifi FPV is a bit laggy and crap, but cool still, and the quad itself is very stable... Overall, a very fun little quad...
Overall, I found the copter a lot of fun, but it's honestly very hard to use - you will need a lot of practice, which I would suggest sticking indoors first...
Great little quad for first timers... Easy set up... Very durable, have had quite a few hard landings and crashes, nothing has broken yet.
It hovers easily, takes crashes well and responds wonderfully... the controls were very soft, and easy to handle even for an absolute beginner.
