The MJX Bugs 2 is the next , well , i say next but the numbering sequence some manufacturers use is mind boggling , quadcopter from manufacturers MeiJiaXin Toys , the Bugs 2 is available in two models , the B2C which is a brushless quadcopter sporting a 1080p camera with onboard recorder and GPS adding position hold and return to home functions as well as altitude hold and various "failsafe" modes which will automatically initiate a Return To Home command and the B2W which adds an FPV via WiFi component which is needed for the positioning of video or photographs.
Following on from their very popular "Bugs 3" the Bug2 B2C and B2W has a redesigned hard plastic shell compared to the Bugs 3 soft flexible body and comes with LED lit short clear mounts under the motors instead of the 3's long legs. The transmitter is similar to the Bugs 3 but obviously adds the extra functionality of the GPS and onboard video recording. The Bugs 2 battery is pretty much identical to the Bugs 3 version with the addition of an end cap which locks the battery in to the Bugs 2 internal bay , however the Bugs 3 battery fits perfectly and all that is needed is something to secure the battery in place, i have already modified mine so that i can use other batteries , proprietary batteries are sometimes useful but mostly theyre just a pain.
