JJRC H12C – Headless Mode and Return to Home
After H5C, H6C, H8C and H9D, JJRC announced a new quadcopter with headless mode and one key return to home.
Regarding the specs, this new quadcopter will be a serious competitor for the previous model. Hopefully they used a newer motor model and they eliminated the motor issue that the JJRC H8C has.
In order to improve the flight range of this new quadcopter, they added to the transmitter an external antenna.
The onboard 5MP camera will allow the pilot to capture their flight in full HD resolution. If you don’t need the full HD resolution the JJRC H12C quadcopter can be equipped with a cheaper 720P camera.
JJRC H12C is available in three different colors: white, orange and black.
JJRC H12C features
- 5MP Full HD camera for aerial stills and videos;
- 6 axis gyroscope;
- One key automatic return function. Because it not has GPS, the return to home can’t be very accurate;
- Headless flight mode;
- Dual mode 2.4GHz remote controller. The transmitter can be switched freely between Mode 1 and Mode 2;
- The anti-interference technology will prevent any interferences with other remote controlled quadcopters;
- Can fly both indoor and outdoor;
- Flight functions: up/down, left/right, sideward fight, forward/backward, turn left/right, 360 degree flips;
- LED lights for night flight;
- Up to 8 minutes flight time;
- The rumored flight range is up to 300 meter (that is very hard for me to believe);
- The used battery is another thing that is not very clear. On the specs we can find that it uses a 3.7V battery but on the box it says that uses a 7.4V battery;
- JJRC H12C size: 31 cm x 31 cm.
JJRC H12C package includes:
- the quadcopter it self;
- 2.4 GHz remote controller;
- 1 set of prop guards;
- 1 set of spare propellers;
- 2GB memory card (not included);
- USB memory card reader;
- 3.7V 750mAh or 7.4V 500mah Li-Po battery; (it is not clear yet)
- JJRC H12C user manual.
A new version of this model was announced, the JJRC H12W. The main and only difference is the WIFI first person view camera. Instead of the 5MP camera the manufacturer added a Wi-Fi 720P camera.
