JDRC JD-20: Poor man’s Spark drone

JDRC JD20 drone quadcopter

Like many cheap Chinese drones, the JDRC JD-20 also copies the design of a DJI product. Same as the VISUO XS809HW, renting the design of the popular Mavic Pro, the JDRC JD20 wants to imitate the smaller Spark.

Don’t be fooled, even if the camera seems to be like the Spark one, it doesn’t have neither two axis gimbals nor offer the same image quality. Acctually, it offers only 720P video recording.

Sponosored AD

In addition to the attractive look, the JD-20 Elves drone comes with all the latest toy drone features. Thanks to the barometric air-pressure sensor, the aircraft is capable to maintain autonomously its flight altitude.

According to the specs, the 800 mAh battery allows about 8 ~ 10 minutes of play time.
