MJX X708P Optical Flow Strong WiFi FPV Drone Flight Test Review


This may be one of the best toy WiFi FPV fliers currently available with very low lag and good control range. Its optical flow position hold also makes it very easy to fly. Both make this an excellent drone for new fliers. Coming soon to all vendors.

and here is its flight demonstration
MJX X708P Optical Flow Strong WiFi FPV Drone Flight Test Review (12 min 39 sec)


Pros
- Optical flow position hold works very well, greatly easing flying this drone and making it a reasonably good selfie drone.
- 2.4Ghz FPV WiFi signal is very strong, with surprisingly low lag and almost no frozen or dropped frames. You can actually fly FPV with this WiFi FPV drone. Uses MJX H app available on Google Play here and iTunes here.
- 720p HD camera produces reasonably good video. Video is recorded directly to a microSD card to avoid WiFi frame dropping. WiFi video is also recorded to your phone to ease sharing.
- Uses common 3.7V 580mah Syma X5C style battery. Replacement batteries are cheap and widely available.
- Flight time of over 8 1/2 minutes

Cons
- No on off switch. On off is controlled by plugging or unplugging its battery.
- Camera is fixed lens (can't be adjusted up or down).

Looks like it's a new and improved version of the MJX Cyclone ... and judging by the transmitter, it is

Camera seems okay; remember how bad those were only about a year and a half ago? Very narrow field of view and very prone to jello Now you even get a well working fpv set-up, altitude hold and optical flow thrown in

I don't think that the E32HW has optical flow position hold?

Got it today.

Just quick few flights indoors.

Observed three things.

1. Optical flow doesn’t work over reflective/shiny surfaces like ceramic tile. (even if patterned)
2. Android version of MJX H app does not work. IOS version works.
3. Battery gets hot.

Update after a few outdoor flights. Overall performs well. Optical flow position hold, altitude hold works well. Good range. Picky with regards to batteries. Tried a few batteries. Batteries get hot. Needs higher than 500 mah or flights real short. 30C or higher battery is better.

Has a strong hubsan x4 h502e feel.

Wifi feed a little choppy but good to 100m+ (using iPhone 4s/ app not working on android phone). On Board video quality is average:

Anyone had any luck using the android version of the app?


Update September 22: The android app has been updated for android. You can see the view. But cannot fly with phone app alone. Also wifi repeater works with this drone.

Hey!

I've been flying with mine with the android app and it works fine, got mine a week ago.

So far so good...

Another plus is non proprietary battery. Also pretty good range 100m which improves with wifi repeater.
