If you are looking to try your hands at drone-flying without risking too much money, a budget drone is a good idea. The Goolsky JJRC H47 drone is as budget as it comes, yet is fairly well equipped so you can learn the ropes. It has a 720p camera, Wi-Fi for transmitting live video, and a built-in 6 Axis Gyro.
The JJRC H47 has “Headless Mode”, which means that you do not need to adjust the position of the drone before flying. In addition, you can bring it back to base with just a touch of a button. Newbie pilots will find it easy to get a grasp of flying it.
The built-in 720p HD camera lets the pilot take photographs and record video which can be relayed to the pilot. Goolsky JJRC H47 is a lightweight, compact quad-copter and a 500mAh battery. The transmitter uses two 1.5V batteries.
What flying functions does the JJRC H47 offer? Budget as it is, this drone is capable of side-ward flight, 3D roll, and altitude hold, in addition to regular flight capabilities. All these are possible because it has a 6-axis gyro built in.
Goolsky JJRC H47 Drone: Weak Points
Like all budget drones, the main shortcomings are flying time and remote control distance. The Goolsky JJRC H47 drone has a flying time of 7 minutes only and a remote control distance of 80 to 100 metres. The video feed via Wi-Fi is limited to a maximum of 50 metres though, so you don’t want to fly beyond that if you are depending on the feed.
The live video feed is relayed back to your smartphone during flight. The battery life is rather short, but you do get what you pay for. When putting it away, you can fold the arms so it is easy to carry and keep.
As an entry-level gadget, the Goolsky JJRC H47 drone is a good place to start your hobby as a drone pilot. It will cost you only $69.99 or ₦12,445.00 to get one. If you are already beyond entry-level drones, you might want to have a look at the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0.
