MJX Bugs 3 Drone Quadcopter Outdoor Maiden Flight In Strong Wind With Runcam 2 Flight Footage

1494224481_hqdefault.jpg




This is the maiden outdoor flight with my new MJX Bugs 3 Drone Quadcopter Outdoor with Runcam 2 Flight Footage recorded by my beautiful girlfriend.

In this video I do two flights, both in some very strong wind. In the first I rip around and do flips getting a feel for its performance capabilities. For the second flight, I put Velcro in the bottom of the GoPro Ready holder and got some flight video from this brushless platform.

I got it from Gearbest.com and you can get it by clicking on this link:

Here are the pros and cons for this RC Drone Review:

Pros:
– It looks really cool
– Flips are nice and tight
– It has a long flight time, but not quite as long as I expected
– Its wind handling is exceptional
– It is really nice to fly in small spaces or wide open spaces
– Its price for what you get is very impressive since it is a Brushless RC Drone for a little over $100

Cons:
– The GoPro holder needs some modification to work ideally.
– The process to turn it on isn’t that user friendly, but does get much easier with practice.
– The propriety battery could be a con.

This really feels like a high performance version of the very reliable and extremely stable Syma X8C Venture quad and the newer Syma X8HG multirotor. I have used my Runcam 2 on both platforms and the video was very nice with both, though I have never flown them in the wind I did with this one.

Another multi-rotor that this reminds me of a bit is the far more expensive and advanced, the Hubsan X4 Pro H109S Drone. Other than the cost, the main differences are that camera position is fixed and there is no gimble or GPS to assist with flight.

Cons:

– The process to turn it on isn’t that user friendly.
– The propriety battery could be a con.

Based on just the indoor flight, this appears to be a brushless version of the extremely stable and high performance Syma X8C Venture quad and the newer Syma X8HG multirotor. I have used my Runcam 2 on both platforms and the video was very nice with both.

[Quadcopter ZMR250] Maiden Flights, Maiden Crashes

1490030309_hqdefault.jpg




This was more testing if the quad was functioning than anything else, and since I had both the blackbox data and video footage, decided to experiment a little.

This quadcopter is a lot harder than my little Cheerson CX-10 (which I also never fly outside), but that’s probably more because of how I have the transmitter set up than anything else.

I’ll be throwing a new prop on for the one I bent flying and installing the FPV gear that I have, that might help with how I fly!

Quadcopter Setup:
Frame: ZMR250 Carbon-Fibre (ebay)
PDB: ZMR250 Power Distribution board (ebay)
Battery: 2200mAh 20C Zippy 3S1P LiPo
Motors: King Kong 2204-2300kV Brushless Motors
Motor ESC: King Kong 12A Opto ESCs w/ BLHeli (the beacon feature is AWESOME)
Flight Controller: King Kong CC3D Atom clone (the micro has been replaced with a 256K STM32F303)
Flight Controller Software: Cleanflight (v2 firmware compiled from source)
Receiver: Turnigy 9X8Cv2 with CPPM mod ( https://twitter.com/crennsmind/status/838271526566649856 )
Transmitted: Turnigy 9X running ER9X

World’s Smallest Camera Drone – Cheerson CX-10C Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review

1484890922_hqdefault.jpg




This is the Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review for the Cheerson CX-10C. It is called the World’s Smallest Camera Drone, but I still prefer to call RC Aircraft like this quads, quadcopters, or multirotors because that is what they are given that this doesn’t have GPS. That might change in the future though! I do see that the Cheerson CX-10W is already on pre-sale some places and that has WIFI FPV and is the same size as this!

One of the things I did near the end of the video was offer up a size comparison for those of you who are not familiar with the original Cheerson CX-10 and CX-10A. Since this is so small, I only compared it to some of my mid-sized quads on down. The biggest ones were the Syma X5SC-1 and Dromida Vista. The micro quad range was shown next and included the Dromida Verso, Blade Nano QX 3D, and then the Estes Proto-Z, which I mistakenly called the Estes Proto-N. The Proto N is the World’s Smallest Drone currently. The final comparison came down to the original Cheerson CX10 and the Estes Proto-X quadcopter.

Here are my review notes for the Cheerson CX10C Video Cam Quadcopter:

Pros
– Very stable for a multirotor this size
– Tight flips even with the added weight of the camera
– Three flight modes and all are usable
– An easy to see indicator light when the camera is in use

Cons
– Short flight times
– The camera is only .3MP, so the quality is low
– It has a slow yaw rate like my Syma X12

This video contains indoor flight footage only due to the weather. I will be flying this outside to see how the video footage looks with outside lighting on this Nano Quad or Nano Drone.
