Anoth­er devel­op­ment of the com­pa­ny Mei­ji­ax­in Toys — MJX R / C Tech­nic — quadro­copter MJX X705C. At the moment, it is firm­ly entrenched in the “Pur­chased drones” seg­ment in terms of price / qual­i­ty ratio. The design is inher­it­ed from Syma X5C and remote­ly from DJI Phan­tom 3. Of course, it is far from Phan­tom, but the dif­fer­ence between Syma X5C and MJX X705C is vis­i­ble to the naked eye. Next, about the most impor­tant details of the pop­u­lar mod­el.

About the product

Let’s imme­di­ate­ly note the plas­tic of the MJX X705C, the qual­i­ty deserves respect for the UAV niche it occu­pies. Will not fas­ten, does not bend, the body of the drone as one mono­lith­ic struc­ture. Equipped with bright LED light­ing. Drone dimen­sions 315 × 315 × 120mm. Drone weight ≈ 102 gr.

flight qualities

The MJX X705C quad­copter will please any begin­ner. Sta­ble, it reacts accu­rate­ly to the move­ment of the sticks, you won’t have to get used to it. Active­ly rotates on the rud­er, per­forms pro­grammed flips with­out any prob­lems.

The X705C motors are com­mu­ta­tor type, the torque is trans­mit­ted through gear­box­es.

Camera

The MJX X705C quad­copter received an FPV kit in its arse­nal, through which first-per­son flight is imple­ment­ed for this mod­el. The qual­i­ty of the 0.3MP Wi-Fi cam­era C4005 leaves much to be desired. In prac­tice, 1280 × 720p (HD) does not reach the res­o­lu­tion declared by the man­u­fac­tur­er, a max­i­mum of 640 × 480p at 15 fps. Over­all pic­ture qual­i­ty is below aver­age. The cam­era is con­trolled using a smart­phone through a free appli­ca­tion. The main pur­pose of the Wi-Fi cam­era is far from shoot­ing, but a sim­ple intro­duc­tion to fly­ing in FPV mode.

It is worth remem­ber­ing that for all its sim­plic­i­ty, FPV over Wi-Fi has one sig­nif­i­cant dis­ad­van­tage — the delay. Its val­ue increas­es with each meter the dis­tance of the drone from the smart device with which the cam­era was paired.

Food

The MJX X705C comes with a 3.7V 550(600) mAh lithi­um-poly­mer bat­tery. Depend­ing on the pilot­ing modes, it pro­vides a flight time of no more than 8 min­utes. Bat­tery charg­ing time ≈ 120 min­utes.

The MJX X705C quad­copter can be equipped with both 550mAh and 600mAh bat­ter­ies. In tests, there was no sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence in flight time.

First start

Hav­ing assem­bled the MJX X705C in flight con­di­tion, post­pone the instal­la­tion of the rotors on the dri­ve shafts of the motors for lat­er. This is due for secu­ri­ty rea­sons. The rotors are put on after bind­ing the remote con­trol to the drone.

Drone tethering

  1. Turn on the drone — on the back of the drone, the switch is in the “On” posi­tion. The air­craft’s LED light will flash rapid­ly.
  2. We install the drone on a flat sur­face with red lights towards the pilot.
  3. We turn on the remote con­trol. We wait 5–7 sec­onds, after which we move the left stick from the low­er posi­tion to the upper one and back in one motion.
  4. The indi­ca­tion on the remote con­trol will flash green, and the back­light on the air­craft will stop flash­ing. Wait for the remote con­trol indi­ca­tor to turn on per­ma­nent­ly. The bind­ing is com­plet­ed and the drone is ready to fly.
  5. Install the rotors on the drone motor dri­ve shafts.

Linking the camera to a smartphone

Next, we pro­ceed to bind WiFi toamers C4005 to a smart­phone. To do this, down­load the free appli­ca­tion “MJX C4005F”.

  1. After down­load­ing the appli­ca­tion, turn on Wi-Fi on your smart­phone. Find “MJX C4005 FPV_17C1” in the list of con­nect­ed devices and click “Con­nect”.
  2. Run the pre­vi­ous­ly down­loaded appli­ca­tion “MJX C4005F”. The “Mon­i­tor” icon will appear on the dis­play, touch it. Bind­ing is com­plet­ed cor­rect­ly if the live image from the drone’s cam­era appears on the dis­play.

In addi­tion to dis­play­ing the FPV image, the appli­ca­tion will allow you to con­trol: video record­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, dis­play­ing the trans­mit­ted image at 180º and assign­ing a loca­tion for sav­ing the footage on the smart­phone, as well as dis­play­ing infor­ma­tion about the Wi-Fi con­nec­tion sig­nal lev­el.

MJX X705C Quadcopter Review

The MJX X705C quad­copter is equipped with clas­sic 4‑channel con­trol equip­ment oper­at­ing at a fre­quen­cy of 2.4GHz. In a zone free from inter­fer­ence, it pro­vides con­trolled removal of the drone at a dis­tance of up to 100 meters. In the metrop­o­lis, this dis­tance is no fur­ther than 50 meters. The remote con­trol is equipped with an LCD dis­play that dis­plays aux­il­iary infor­ma­tion about the pow­er lev­el of the equip­ment, the strength of the trans­mit­ted sig­nal, the accel­er­a­tion lev­el, the indi­ca­tion of the activ­i­ty of the video mode, the modes for deter­min­ing the sticks “Mode‑1” and “Mode‑2” and the indi­ca­tion of costs (L and H, which cor­re­sponds to Low and High).

The MJX X705C is an excel­lent val­ue for mon­ey drone. There­fore, it is more than ever suit­able for novice pilots who set them­selves the task of learn­ing the pri­ma­ry skills of pilot­ing and famil­iar­iz­ing them­selves with FPV flight, in order to lat­er move on to some­thing more expen­sive. When retro­fit­ted with a good cam­era (for exam­ple, Mobius MINI or Fire­fly Q6), it will sig­nif­i­cant­ly extend the pos­i­tive emo­tions from own­er­ship.
