J.ME Follow Me selfie drone from Feima Robotics

Feima Robotics, an unknown multi-rotor manufacturer, just announced their first selfie drone, called J.Me Follow Me.

Like most of the selfie drones, the J.Me comes without a physical remote control. The aircraft can be controlled in three ways trough your smartphone. While I’m already accustomed with virtual sticks and gyro control, I would be interested to test the voice control.

Sponosored AD

In front of the J.Me quadcopter is located a 4K camera. In order to allow smooth aerial videos, the camera is mounted on a 2-axis brushless gimbal. The camera features HD WiFi FPV (720P real-time image transmission).

Thanks to the optical flow and ultrasonic sensors, this Follow Me selfie drone can avoid obstacles by itself. Frankly, I doubt about the 100% accuracy of this feature.

Being powered by a 4s 3000mAh battery, the advertised flight autonomy is up to 23 minutes, which is comparable with the one my Phantom 3 Advanced has.

  1. Actually, this drone is called Feima Robotics J.ME!
    Biggest disadvantage of the wifi FPV is the short range, it has only 100 meters in open field 🙁
    Nice concept but with limited possibilities, if you want something PRO look for a DJI quad

  2. I would get one today but don’t really trust those Chinese websites that sells it.
    Nothing on : eBay, Amazon, jet, Ali express, Gearbest, banggood, Rakuten……..

    Anyone knows where I can find J.ME Follow Me other then geekbuying or hobbywow?
    I want a trustful seller with spare parts availability.

  3. I’ve had mine for about 1 month now.
    I found it to be very user friendly for experienced and novice flyers.
    I noticed that some ads for the drone come with spare props, but mine didn’t include any spare props.
    Fly time is about 20 minutes on average.
    Since the new firmware update 1.3.9, I have noticed better application of the follow me function.
    I did have one instance where I was using the follow me function and my J.Me Follow Me drone fell from the sky for no reason and crashed to the ground. Other than a few scratches on a couple props there was no real damage (‘TG I was only about 30 feet off the ground).
    I also bought the controller separate which really extends the range and the speed.
    I believe Feima Robotics has a good product here with a nice build quality. I also think they released this drone far too early as some features don’t work at all and others are glitchy. There is no obstacle avoidance that is operable. Also I noticed the headless mode is sometimes greyed out and sometimes available. Motion control is not very good at all. I have tried many times following the online instructions and I could really get it to work properly.
    A couple final points. Please take the time to over haul your website to include English for all instructions. I bought the controller which only included Chinese instructions.
    Last but not least…. GET RID of the graduated learning that forces everyone, included expert drone pilots to complete a set of tasks and flying times to unlock other functions. I bought and paid for my drone, let me decide what function I want to use without jumping through hoops.
    All in all, it’s a good build for a first release from Feima Robotics. Quality item.
    Please heed the needs of your consumers and act on what needs to be fixed. If you really want to break into the North American market, we need to be able to read from English instructions and website.
    Hope this helps anyone thinking of buying this drone, and I hope Feima Robotics deals with the issues that need attention.
