Technical data and facts

Typically, the drone is controlled by a 2.4GHz remote controller, which ensures stable and interference-free transmission. You can also easily fold it and carry it in your pocket.

The remote controller also has a design similar to that of the DJI Mavic. Above there are 2 antennas for signal transmission, below – a holder for a smartphone.

It’s also important to note that you can fly with your smartphone even without a remote control. However, the maximum transmission range is limited here. However, Gravity Control has an advantage here, so if you turn your smartphone left or right, the drone can be controlled.

You have the ability to do great flips with the drone at the touch of a button, without having to catch the helicopter when it falls, it does it completely automatically, and also balances itself.

The motors are very powerful and offer a lot of horsepower for the best possible performance.

Drone design

The design of the JDRC JD-20S JD20S PRO drone especially knocked us off our feet. The model looks a bit like the DJI Mavic Pro, but still has its own style!

Color coordination is black and white, so you can again select from the menu which of the two colors should represent more for the outlines, and which one should represent the base color.

An on / off button is located above the fuselage, and a camera with a gimbal is in front.

The model is taking shape. Both the wings and the propellers. The quadcopter can be easily put anywhere and taken with you.

As for the dimensions, we are here folded: 15 x 11 x 6 cm and unfolded 40 x 33 x 6.5 cm. Weight is about 500 grams.

camera

A 5MP pixel density FPV camera is installed here, which records video at a resolution of about 1080P.

The image and video are impressive. You can also easily transfer this to your smartphone using Wi-Fi FPV.

Both image sharpness and color coordination correspond to the price / quality ratio.

Battery, flight time and range

The battery capacity of this drone is about 1800mAh. It is a lipo battery that runs on 3.7 volts.

For a flight, the charge is enough for about 16-18 minutes. The maximum charging time is 120 to 150 minutes.

A fully charged remote control has a range of approximately 100 meters.

Flight modes

The numerous flight modes are awesome for the price. In addition to automatic systems that run in the background, such as automatic altitude control or a 6-axis gyroscope, there are also modes that you can actively use.

There is, for example, a flight path that you can tune the drone to follow the line drawn on your smartphone.

The 360-degree flip that can be done with the push of a button is also pretty cool and fun.

In headless mode, the drone will respond directly to your control commands, no matter how it approaches you.As such, it can be pointed downward in your direction with the movement of the joystick, although the head of the drone, for example, points to a completely different point.
