JJRC X23: Ugly but very capable camera drone


I know that beauty is relative, but JJRC could work more on the design of their new X23 drone. Personally, I found it outdated and even ugly.

The JJRC X23 features a collapsible design with brushless motors. With folded arms measure 155*75*55mm and weigh just 225 grams including battery and OA module. Here I should mention that in most countries, including the US, drones under 0.55lbs do not require special registrations.

It comes on top with a removable 360° intelligent obstacle avoidance system (OAS) that scans the surroundings in order to avoid collisions.

According to the advertised specs, the 7.4V / 2500mAh battery allows about 18 minutes of flight time. While the control range is about 1200 meters, the WiFi video transmission is only 400 meters.

Thanks to the fail-safe return to home (RTH) function, in case of transmitter signal loss or low flight battery voltage, the JJRC X23 drone will return autonomously to the take-off point.
