A novelty in the popular X‑series of MJX mini hexacopters. After the release of the well-known models MJX X600 and X900, the developer offered the consumer a hex in a new size — MJX X800.

The first thing I want to immediately note about the MJX X800 is good plastic, you can immediately see that the manufacturer did not sell too cheap. The design will please many. I was also impressed by the drone’s flight weight of only 72.5 grams, the hex is very light. The battery of the X800 weighs only 18.7 grams, which results in a good performance advantage over other analogs. In general, no unnecessary forms, everything is done in favor of maneuverability and speed.
- Flight time (with mixed piloting style) ≈ 7 minutes.
- Battery charge time ≈ 90 min.
- Flight range: up to 150 meters.
*The developer offers the X800 in two colors “White” and “Black”.
The MJX X800 hexacopter is equipped with 7×20mm brushed motors. Light weight coupled with 6 motors made it possible to realize distinctive dynamics and vertical thrust at the output. In the “High” mode, the potential is more than enough. Ready to carry a good HD camera (Mobius MINI or Firefly Q6) on board without noticeable loss in handling.
The main disadvantage of collector motors is a small working resource, only about 30–40 full-fledged sorties, then a gradual deterioration in flight performance. Therefore, when buying such a hex, it will not be superfluous to buy a spare set of motors.
To get to the internal elements of the hexacopter, the user will need a lot of time to unwind the body. The bearing screws on the drive shafts of the motors are securely fixed. To remove them, a tool is included in the kit, but it is extremely unreliable to work with it, since careless use can damage the drone itself.
It will take at least 30 minutes to remove the 6 main rotors of the copter.
Opening the case, you can see a typical assembly for this category of drones — the XN297 RF chip and STM32 microcontrollers on the ARM core. The motors are connected via 1.25 microJST connectors.
Despite the fact that the motors are connected to the hexacopter via microJST connectors, the user will still need a soldering iron to replace them, as new motors are sold without these connectors.
The hexacopter is powered by a 3.7V lithium polymer battery with a capacity of 750mAh. According to the specification, it should provide a flight time of up to 10 minutes. In practice, with a mixed style of piloting, this time averaged 7 minutes. It is charged from the USB charger that comes with the kit in 80–90 minutes.
The MJX X800 hexacopter comes with a classic 4‑channel control equipment operating at a frequency of 2.4GHz. Power is supplied by 6 AA batteries. Provides a distance of up to 150 meters in an interference-free area.
A distinctive feature of this equipment is the built-in gyroscope. If you press the right stick and hold it until you hear a beep, the remote control will enter the “GRAVITY SENSOR” (gyroscope) mode. In this mode, the drone is controlled by tilting the equipment itself. Tilt forward — the hex flies forward, tilt back — flies backward, and so on.
There are four buttons on the front of the remote control, the bottom pair is not active in practice. The upper right button is responsible for turning the light on and off, the left, together with the right control stick, activates coups (flips). The central button turns the drone on and off, and also serves to change flight modes:
- L — low (quiet mode) suitable for beginners
- M — medium (medium) for more experienced pilots
- H — high (maximum) for those who do not have enough medium mode
Assignment of buttons and switches
The MJX X800 hexacopter has proven to be the fastest hexacopter in its series. Protracted coups, from the side look impressive. The bright LED lights are perfect for night flying. We note a good radio range. It proved to be excellent when flying outdoors in windy weather. For a drone with such capabilities, the flight duration was pleasantly surprised.
The MJX X800 hexacopter is sold on various internet trading platforms for an average price of $38.
