A very stylish drone for a fairly low starting price is the JJRC H47 Elfie Wifi FPV 720P HD camera drone with reliable G-sensor control.

In our opinion, the model is very suitable for beginners and drone pilots with little flying experience.

What you can expect from this quadcopter and what special features you can expect, you will learn from this report.


Cool design

Drone control is an unusual feature and uniqueness. This is done with a remote control using an acceleration sensor. Depending on how you tilt the joystick, the model moves forward, backward, or sideways. Additional functions can be operated with other controls on the remote control.

Size, design and weight

In its normal state, the drone is 17.8cm long and 18.7cm full diagonal.

The ability to fold the drone is pretty cool, so when folded it measures only 6.7cm x 14.6cm and 3.2cm high.

Folded drone

No brushless, but uses brushed motors and a 6-axis gyroscope to control the flight position.

Overall, the design looks very futuristic and is similar to models from the market leader DJI.

Camera, memory and FPV live image transmission

Installed 720p camera with FPV mode.

However, the live FPV images are only transmitted up to 30 meters, and the maximum transmission range for controlling the drone is 80 to 100 meters. We consider this discrepancy to be somewhat unfavorable.

The entries are displayed directly in the application. Images are transmitted at a rate of about 27 images per second and are displayed correctly in the application.

The recording is then stored on the end device, i.e. smartphone or tablet, so you should also make sure you have enough storage space.

Battery, range and flight time

Unfortunately, the maximum flight time is only 7 minutes and the loading time is a full 70 minutes. In our opinion, this is an extremely unfavorable usage / load ratio.

If the battery runs out, the drone does not just fall, but fully automatically descends.

Flight stabilization

Reliable flight stabilization occurs fully automatically using a 6-axis gyroscope. These gyro systems are ideal for balancing drone systems and have proven themselves in this use for many years.

Beginners have no problem controlling the drone because it hovers fully automatically.

Pros and cons


  • Cool looks and foldable design
  • Ideal for beginners thanks to the 6-axis gyroscope system
  • Has a 720p camera and FPV mode
  • Can be perfectly controlled
  • Can be connected to mobile phone or tablet
  • Live FPV images are streamed directly to the end device and saved there
  • Available in different colors


  • Rather less suitable for professionals
  • Extremely short flight times and long charging times


The JJRC H47 Elfie Wifi FPV 720P HD Camera Drone is quite suitable for beginner drones and has many cool features such as real-time FPV image transmission and more. However, the flight time is only enough for 7 minutes.

Remote control

We think it’s especially cool to be able to control the quadcopter through the motion sensor, which is unusual. In general, we like the model very much, and we are happy to recommend it to others.
