Camera and Live Video Transmission

JJRC H8D is the upgraded version of H8C the non-FPV camera version of the H8 line (if you are concerned about the motors being too nosy, don’t worry JJRC has placed bearings on H8D to reduce noise). H8D comes with a 2MP camera with adjustable angle (manually) so you can move the camera up and down. Image quality is decent, and it will please most casual flyers. However, it may display ‘jello-effect’ occasionally. As previously said JJRC H8D comes with a complete FPV package. Thus it includes a 4.3” LCD monitor on which the live video is displayed. Transmission is done via 5.8Ghz frequency, and the LCD screen is placed on the remote controller (as seen in the image). The monitor also has a shade protector to make sure you are still able to see the screen on sunny days. Contrary to most low-cost Toy quadcopters JJRC H8D LCD FPV Monitor does comes with its own battery! Therefore you need to charge it separately from the drone itself. JJRC H8D is aA good FPV drone and definitely a good value for your money.
