JJRC H11C Camera Drone Flight Test Review


This camera quadcopter includes a unique ability in toy drones, with a camera that has a remote angled lens. From the ground you can angle the lens in-flight for up or down viewing. Find it here.

The quadcopter itself is very well designed and is a great flier. However its controller does appear to have some issues in that its range is much less than advertised.

Pro's
- 2MP 720p HD camera with powered lens that can be remotely controlled to view up or down.
- Great flying quadcopter. Very maneuverable with plenty of power.
- Very colorful and bright LED lighting. Great night flier.
- Motors are plug in replacement, and very easy to change, even in the field.
- Large 1100mah battery for 7 minutes flight time if recording, and up to 10 minutes if not.
- Includes headless mode and one key return.

Con's
- Limited range of about 60 meters, much less than its advertised 120 meters.
- Although an HD video camera, jello and video sharpness and color is somewhat poor.
- Camera memory card and card reader are not included, and must be purchase separately.

and here's my flight with it:

So the non FPV version of the H11 also has limited range? Hope they get this fixed in the next version, along with the motor/gear vibrations, that affect the image so much.

Yeah, the range is still an issue of the transmitter, which happens to be the same transmitter for both H11C and H11D. As for jello, I think it's actually a combination of both the type of props used, along with the swivel lens mount not providing firm restraint to the lens.

The props seem to flex a lot under load, that might indeed have some influence. The gears are also partially responsible, I think. Due to the angular gears, the mesh can vary as motors rev up and down, unless you shim the prop shafts to reduce slop.

Not any difference other than the H11D has a FPV transmitter in the camera, and comes with a FPV receiver screen.

No difference other than the FPV system.

Hmm. Aimable camera. Something I'm after without having to spend large $$. Definitely worth keeping an eye on. I like the large battery too. I wonder if a prop balance and WiFi antenna would solve the two issues?

Should be able to increase the range to 100 meters with some minor mods to the antennas or even just the placement of them, I think.

On my H11D gained range was 5 metres with both tx and rx antenna aimed straight up.

Price adjustment time.

If I had one, I'd probably take the core of a WiFi antenna and solder it in, as I mentioned.. That would probably triple the range, as long as it's placed correctly.

NiMh rechargeables might give a slight boost also, since the TX runs on 3 AAAs

Actually this isn't an older model, so the price point is right about normal. We here at RC groups are a picky bunch.
