This UdiRC U818A is a great flying little quad. The auto-stabilization make it great for someone learning to fly as well as a stable platform for practicing aerial photography.
Quadcopter JJRC Introduction
The JJRC H8 is in a class of its own. It has red and blue led lights on it and it lights up and looks really cool. Smaller and just as nimble as a Hubsan, very stable in hovering like a Syma X5, this one flies like a dream. I fly it around the house every day, and am very happy with the performance and durability. Easy to fly after a little practice and so far tough as nails. I’m so addicted to this little toy.
Take some time to get use to it, and you’ll be rewarded with excellent flying experience. This thing can fly both indoors and outdoors, even in windy conditions (around 10 MPH). It cuts through the wind like it isn’t there! Neat stuff!
Quadcopter JJRC Different Player Level Mode
There are 3 modes: beginner, intermediate (best for outdoors flight) and headless. To my surprise, headless flight actually works. No matter how you turn the quad, it will remember forwards and go in that direction. I’ve had it 200 feet away easily where I could barely see it but return home/headless mode would be of much help.
Easy to fly in beginner mode. Switch to expert mode when you’re ready for insane speed reaching up to 30mph on a full charge and control. I’m guessing yaw rate is about 3 spins or more per second, never seen any other quad being crazy fast like this. Watch out for ceiling fans, air condition vents, HDTVs, and anything containing liquid. It has quick acceleration, I had popcorn from ceiling everywhere.
Quadcopter JJRC High Battery Efficiency
I charge in about 40 minutes, and flies for 5-8 minutes. It comes with a screwdriver to be able to open the battery port of the controller to insert the batteries. Then connect the ends on the drone for it to be able to power up. You can swap out batteries for multiple flights. Buy more batteries so you can keep playing with it and not waiting on a charge. However, I don’t like the fact that there is no power switch on the quad.
All things considered, the JJRC H8 is great to learn on if you are planning on investing in a full sized one. Definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of getting into quad copters. You can’t go wrong!
