JJRC H26W is a new FPV quadcopter with a gimballed camera
JJRC is releasing another new quadcopter called the JJRC H26W, it is a WiFi FPV version of the JJRC H26D which is video only. It looks like a pretty good quadcopter, has a 2 axis gimbal, headless mode, flip mode and the camera streams to your phone via WiFi.
The quadcopter is large sized at 45x45cm and it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to fly it indoors, the larger size also gives you more stable flight in windy conditions.
While we’re on the subject of wind if you have flown a quadcopter that records video then you know that wind makes your video shaky, this problem is solved by the gimbal the camera is attached to.
The gimbal uses 2 motors to adjust the camera angle during movement or wind, this makes the video look smooth all the time rather than shaking around like it would if you didn’t have the gimbal.
Video quality, fps, and resolution are to be determined as none of those details have been released, I also wonder what the delay will be like on the FPV video. One other thing to note is that they list the range of the transmitter as being 300m and even if that is true I can almost guarantee the FPV will not work at that range.
Transmitter wise there is nothing super special, you’ve got your standard controls and trim, then you have camera controls and 2 knobs that control the camera position near the upper portion of the transmitter.
The H26W also has some other features that are pretty common such as flip mode which seems like it could be scary, headless mode, and one key return. Headless and one key return probably work alright when you first use them but can degrade in performance over flight time.
JJRC H26W definitely looks like it could be a great quadcopter for the price, I’ll be checking it out more when it releases but in the mean time you can look at the specs below and check out even more details on the store page.
