MJX Bugs 2W B2W High Speed GPS FPV Drone Flight Test Review
This is the Bugs 2 “W” FPV version, and flies insanely fast for a GPS bird. It uses 5G WiFi for FPV video reception on your phone. Get the Bugs 2W FPV here https://goo.gl/FGNE5W and the cheaper non FPV (has 1080p camera) Bugs 2C here https://goo.gl/5vE1oq
– 1080p camera actually takes nice sharp video. Video quality is better than the Hubsan H501S & C, but about on par with the H501A.
– Uses USA GPS and Russian GLONASS satellites for very fast and accurate GPS lockon.
– Very fast GPS quadcopter. Many GPS quadcopters can’t fly this fast, simply because their GPS system can’t keep up. With GPS/GLONASS, this one can.
– Also has altitude hold, and headless mode.
– 5G WiFi FPV does not interfere with 2.4G controller. Thus this has greater WiFi FPV range (a little over 100 meters) than most other WiFi FPV fliers.
– Also, line of site control range with the controller is advertised out to 1000 meter. Now most people can’t see this at 1000 meters. But if you do fly out of range, its GPS bring it home to a landing. Or if you lose sight of it, or just lazy, press the return to home button for automatic return to home and landing.
– Will also return to home on low battery. First it gives a beeping warning. But if you ignore the warning, it will automatically return and land at 2 bars warning if you are greater than 100m, return and land at 1 bar if greater than 15 m, or automatically land at 1 bar if less than 15m.
– Although the battery seems to be proprietary, the Bugs 3 battery is the same without the back connection panel. If you use a Bugs 3 battery, you’ll need to devise a method so the Bugs battery it won’t slide out the back (tape? velcro?).
– Not everyone has 5G WiFi on their phones or tablets. It’s only available on newer devices, and even then, not all have it. Check your intended control device to confirm it has 5G WiFi before purchasing.
– Would have liked to seen a WiFi repeater system included (like the H501A) so that FPV range could be much greater than 100 meters.
– The body plastic feels like it might be more brittle than the H501 series, or the Bugs 3. Stay away from obstacles during high speed flying.
