Now that Santa has brought everyone the wished quadcopter let’s see what we could wish for next year :). This JYU Hornet S seems to be the ideal gift as it is an all-in-one concept. It comes with a 3-axis brushless gimbal, 12 MP camera, and FPV goggles.
I’ve just read that, beginning with 2016, in the US, everyone who owns a drone between .55 lbs. and 55 lbs must register it (read more here: FAA.gov). Registration officially begins on December 21 so don’t forget to register your quadcopter received on Christmas because the pecuniary penalties are big.
Compared to the offered features, this JYU Hornet S quadcopter has a very small size (232 mm x 232 mm). The basic version can be used without additional landing skids that provide a very sporty design. Anyway, the advertised 120 km/h flight speed seems unbelievable…
The quadcopter’s remote controller has a simplistic but very elegant design. On top of the transmitter, there are two rubber ducky antennas to ensure stable radio coverage.
Besides the built-in 700 TVL FPV camera, this quadcopter can be equipped with a 3-axis brushless gimbal and 12 MP camera for aerial filming.
This quadcopter will be available in four package combinations:
- JYU Hornet S Basic – without gimbal;
- JYU HornetS Aerial – With brushless gimbal and 12 MP camera;
- JYU HornetS FPV – Basic package with 700 TVL camera, 5.8 GHz TX, and 4.3″ FPV LCD screen;
- JYU Hornet S Deluxe- Aerial package with 5.8 GHz real-time image transmission and FPV goggles.

Now, you can find the “Basic version” for $229 and the “Deluxe” package with FPV glasses for $440. Unfortunately, spare parts are still not available…
