JJRC X6 Aircus: Poor man’s Phantom drone

After many Mavic alike drones here is a very interesting Phantom clone. In addition to the cool design, the JJRC X6 Aircus comes with powerful brushless motors, Dual-GPS system and Full HD camera with 2-axis gimbal.

Just like the Phantom’s LIPO pack, the Aircus X6’s battery also has charging level indicator LEDs. According to the manufacturer’s specs the 2-cell/3000mAh battery allows about 20~23 minutes airborne time.

Thanks to the WiFi real-time image transmission you can display the drone’s live video feed on your smartphone.

Featuring GPS assisted fail-safe-RTH, the JJRC Aircus will return autonomously to the take-off point when the flight battery is near empty or the quadcopter is out of the controller’s range.

  1. I have the JJRC X6 Aircus and I believe it to be one of the first ones and I can’t find the charger for it online anywhere. It takes the li-po rechargeable battery. This battery sits in a stand. Would someone please help me with this issue.

  2. I’m quite confused! First, X6 Tarantula then X6 Aircus. JJRC could be more creative in naming their drones. These two quads are completely different. The Aircus is not a successor of the Tarantula.
