The Drones have become one of the most desired by young and old “toys”. If you are thinking about buying one of these gadgets, it is convenient that you start by getting a small one, that is easy to use and also cheap. One device that meets all these requirements is the JJRC H37.
JJRC H37 Elfie is a small drone that you can carry in your pocket. This open drone has dimensions of 16 x 13.5 x 2.5 cm and weighs only 76 grams. In addition, it has the advantage that it is a folding drone, with removable propellers and arms that can be collected. This allows you to easily take it with you anywhere you go.
No doubt this quadrocopter is one of the best pocket drones we can find in the market. But that does not mean that it is not conveniently equipped. For example, it incorporates an innovative system of stabilization of 6 axes, to facilitate the handling to people who are beginning to become familiar with it.
It is an entry-level drone, which has a built-in 0.3 MP camera, which allows you to take pictures and record videos at 480P. One of its peculiarities is that it does not bring control. But it is controlled directly through the smartphone. You only have to download the official application on your mobile, and once installed, connect both devices via WiFi.
Thanks to the App for the mobile phone, we will be able to have an FPV vision of the JJRC H37 Elfie camera. In this way, we can see on the screen of the smartphone what the drone is seeing, before capturing photographs or filming videos.
We will also be able to access all the functions of this JJRC H37 drone and control its different flight modes. It must be said that in this version the driving system has been considerably improved. Thanks to its height control, driving this drone is easier than ever. You just need a little practice, to get the controls of this unmanned aerial vehicle.
With the JJRC H37 we will be able to perform all kinds of turns, maneuvers and pirouettes, more typical of a model airplane than a drone. Although it has no remote control, the manufacturer has done an excellent job of software, so we can do many acrobatics with this pocket drone. When we are in full flight, with the help of the controls that appear in the application, you can adjust the angle of the camera depending on our needs.
The battery with elongated shape, has a capacity of 500 mAh, which gives perfectly for a few short flights, before having to recharge it again. In good conditions and without hurry much, the autonomy approaches 8 minutes. What even allows us to fly abroad, always trying to avoid the presence of strong winds.
Another function that has this small drone, is the automatic takeoff. At the press of a key, the drone will begin to rise to start the flight. Of course, once it is in the air, we have to control the position of the device, since the wind can start to move laterally.
Although it has no GPS, it has the necessary technology that allows you to return home automatically. By pressing a button, the quadrocopters will return to the starting point.
As is now the case with most drones, especially the smaller ones, quadrocopters JJRC H37 Elfie has incorporated the possibility of flying in “headless” mode. This means that when we are driving the drone and we have this mode active, we do not need to know which side is “looking” at the device. Since this one is going to take as reference our position in space. This is very useful when making some maneuvers.
It is clear that this pocket drone does not have great quality. More than anything is going to help us get into this exciting world and get some practice. Apart from taking some aerial photos and recording some nice videos. But just that. You can not ask for more. The best is its design, size and portability. It is ideal to take it anywhere, since you can put it in your pocket.
