MJX X101 compare with Syma X5SW, the dimension is slightly larger, the dimension is 52.5 x 52.5 x 18.5cm, weight 420 grams, coupled with the use of super magnetic motor, can be said that have reached medium-sized four-axis machine series, the purpose of course is to provide better wind resistance and more stable flight performance.
X101 installed a shock absorption PTZ, available for load weight of 100 grams, the higher the quality of third-party aerial shoot camera, for example: GoPro, SJCAM, Xiaomi Xaioyi Action and so on. It must be noted that the factory did not come with the relevant camera buckles, in other words, the user should try to put their own third party aerial camera mounted on X101 fixed gimbal. Because MJX X101 very large volume, it is recommended only flying outdoors.
MJX X101 though is Ready to Fly design, but the players have to manually install the landing skid, image transmission lens assembly, protective frame and so on, Because need to use screws to fix, so it takes some time. MJX X101 fuselage bottom has a separate power switch button, no need to pull the battery can be directly shut down. The LED Lights of fuselage bottom and front, in addition to allowing the player to identify the quad head direction and for the night flight, but also flash rapidly to warning the quadcopter is low power, Aerial Players can also use the remote control to turn off lights at the bottom of the fuselage.
MJX X101 remote control connected to the vehicle using the 2.4GHz frequency spectrum, provide the operating range up to
100 meters and support four-channel control, but also left and right mode switch, and to allow independent setting about whether the joystick rebound, particularly convenient for left-handed players. Meanwhile, the remote control except features one key return button, headless mode function button, but also with four trim button, and an LED panel displays the status, also allows users to control the throttle output power to limit flight altitude. Overall, the interface layout is very comprehensive.

When it is flying in the outdoors, the wind resistance is impressive, plus built-in 6-axis gyroscope, flying quite stable. At the same time, the engine speed, the output power is very high, so ascend very fast, when tested to full output, less than 15 seconds has ascended nearly 100 meters. During the test flight, found MJX X101 control range more than 100 meters, conservatively estimated to about 150 meters, but in the long distance, the control response will be a little delay, should pay more attention when fly the X101.
MJX X101 although haven’t automatic takeoff / landing, air pressure high altitude etc advanced features, but it support “headless flight” mode and one key return function. Click the return key on the upper left corner in “headless mode”, X101 will be looking for the remote control direction, but lack of GPS positioning function, X101 does not automatically stop, users still have to do it manually. MJX X101 using 7.2V / 1200mAh high capacity battery, flight time up to 12 minutes, but due to voltage, high power, therefore unable to charging via USB, you must use a dedicated AC adapter, and need 1.5 hours to fully charge.
MJX X101 equipped C4008 image transmission components, providing the highest high-definition resolution of 1280 x 720, but only supports the image transmission, does not support voice transmission. MJX X101 using Wi-Fi transfer image in real time to your smartphone or tablet, the image fluency affected by Wi-Fi signal strength, such as control distance is too far away appears tabbing, and even pause. Fortunately, MJX X101 can synchronize videos stored in MicroSD, this part will not affect by Wi-Fi signal, at long range, the picture is not pause. Because MJX X101 only to 25fps take video record, so fast-moving, the picture is still a little bit delayed. When the quadcopter substantial lifting ot rotated, aerial picture will appear Jello Effect, estimated to be caused by gimbal shock absorbers lack of flexibility.
MJX X101 have a good price, provide a better flying experience than other similar products, with “headless mode”, “one key return flight” and other useful features; preloaded C4008 aerial camera has been able to offer 720p HD resolution, sufficient to allow beginners to enjoy aerial fun.
