jjrc-h26d-drone

JJRC H26D

There would be no Top Rated Drones In 2016 list without a JJRC product. This company has been very active in the market recently, releasing great products such as the X6 and the H11 series. In the last quarter of 2015 they announced their newest great product the JJRC H26D, a drone which will surely be one of the most sold toy graded quadcopters in 2016. Why you ask? Well, H26D comes with amazing features, a very good quality camera, and on top of all that an outstanding affordable price. A top quality low budget quadcopter at a below average price cost!

Let us start by stating what makes H26D one of the most viable choices among the low budget quadcopters: the camera. Contrary to other same price drones which always come with the standard 1 or 2MP 720p resolution camera, JJRC moved up a level. Introducing a drone with 3MP with an actual glass wide lens (you will be surprised with the amount of drone cameras which do not use a glass lens). Allowing video and photographs above average image quality! On top of that, it comes with its own 2 Axis Gimbal! This Gimbal stabilizes the camera enhancing video quality and allowing the pilot to tilt the camera in different angles (up and down, left and right) through the transmitter.

It features Headless Mode (example of this feature: when you turn your drone 90 degrees to the left, it will still go forward when you push the rudder forward (without headless mode, it would turn left).
