About the manufacturer

We wel­come a new com­peti­tor in the self­ie drone niche — J.me. The man­u­fac­tur­er is Shen­zhen Pega­sus Robot Tech­nol­o­gy Co., Ltd., Bei­jing. It sells its prod­ucts under the Feima Robot­ics brand. Spe­cial­izes in the devel­op­ment and sub­se­quent pro­duc­tion of UAVs and soft­ware for them.

The main prod­ucts at the moment are: Pega­sus F1000/F200 pro­fes­sion­al drones/Butler mul­ti­func­tion­al drone software/J.me com­pact house­hold drone. Recent­ly, the com­pa­ny has turned its inter­est towards the pro­duc­tion and sale of ultra-small civil­ian unmanned aer­i­al vehi­cles. Their first cre­ation in this direc­tion was the drone — J.me.

About the product

J.me is a mod­er­ate­ly com­pact drone — 169 × 169 × 70 mm, a direct com­peti­tor for such UAVs as: Zerotech dob­by, Wings­land S6 and Yuneec Breeze. If the drone had a fold­able design, it could safe­ly stand next to the famous Mav­ic Pro. The weight of the drone is 550 grams and this fact tells us that the quad will be sub­ject to manda­to­ry reg­is­tra­tion. Although it los­es quite a bit in size and weight, it is noth­ing com­pared to the pack­age of fea­tures that J.me received.

J.me — received the world’s small­est two-axis B / C gim­bal, in fact, this is the most sig­nif­i­cant plus of this self­ie drone, since not one dig­i­tal sta­bi­liza­tion is com­pa­ra­ble in oper­a­tion with ana­log.

Test Drive

Extreme­ly sta­ble in flight and con­trol. Con­trol is implied in two clas­si­cal ways, this is through a mobile device and con­trol equip­ment * (pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly *). When con­trol­ling a smart­phone, it allows you to move away to the declared 200 meters with­out any prob­lems (and even more than 350–400m, but already sub­ject to launch­ing in inter­fer­ence-free zones). By con­trol­ling the equip­ment, this range expands to 1 km. In gen­er­al, the qual­i­ty of com­mu­ni­ca­tion deserves respect.

J.me is respon­si­ble for the posi­tion­ing of the glob­al GPS / GLONASS / Bei­dou sys­tem, and when the drone descends to a height of 3 meters and below, the ultra­son­ic and opti­cal sen­sors are acti­vat­ed, which are locat­ed at the bot­tom of the drone, and I must say that this tan­dem works on a sol­id five.

  • The flight weight of the drone was 570 grams, which is almost twice as heavy as the Spark.
  • The obsta­cle detec­tion sys­tem that should be built into the front arms of the drone is cur­rent­ly not avail­able.
  • I was sur­prised by this fact, in order to ful­ly use the entire arse­nal of drone capa­bil­i­ties, you need to fly off in begin­ner mode for 300 min­utes.

All the declared autonomous func­tions (orbits, fol­low me, fly­ing by way­points, return­ing home) the drone works flaw­less­ly. The flight time declared by the man­u­fac­tur­er is ful­ly con­sis­tent with real­i­ty from 20–23 min­utes, which once again indi­cates the high qual­i­ty of the prod­uct.

Price

Feima J.me is avail­able for pur­chase on var­i­ous mar­ket­places for an aver­age price of $329.

pros

  • Design
  • Qual­i­ty
  • Pow­er­ful built-in Snap­drag­on proces­sor
  • Sta­ble
  • Flight time 23 min­utes
  • 2‑axis mechan­i­cal gim­bal
  • Video qual­i­ty
  • How stand­alone func­tions work
  • Con­nec­tion qual­i­ty

Minuses

  • No elec­tron­ic sta­bi­liza­tion (like Spark)
  • No 4K at 30fps and 1080p at 60fps
  • Until it flies over obsta­cles
  • App and firmware are still in devel­op­ment
  • Requires 300 min­utes of flight time to access all fea­tures
  • Price

The Feima J.me is a great high qual­i­ty prod­uct that can offer the own­er good video qual­i­ty and unpar­al­leled flight time for a self­ie drone. It is the undis­put­ed leader among such drones as: Yuneec Breeze/Zerotech dobby/Wingsland S6/Passport/Xiro Xplor­er Mini, but it is still far from Spark, if only because the cam­era shoots in 4K mode only at 20fps, and in FHD mode only 30 frames / s, and in fact he can­not fly around obsta­cles today. J.me is avail­able for sale on Ali at a price of $599, which is again a minus today, because a more tech­no­log­i­cal­ly advanced Spark will cost the con­sumer at least $60 less. With such a com­peti­tor as Spark, the man­u­fac­tur­er needs to either mod­i­fy the drone or sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce the price tag.
