JJRC M05 Mini RC Helicopter Review

  JJRC M05 is an excellent RC helicopter for absolute beginners. The JJRC M05 does not fly well in the wind that has a speed of over 15kph.  However, a beginner will crash his helicopter less often due to higher precise control.   Also, the JJRC M05 is controlled by a 2.4ghz system so it can fly outdoor if the wind speed is around 14 kph.  As its size is not too small to fly - its length is 345mm, and its height is 108mm; in general, it can fly for about 15 minutes. It is also crash-proof.  After several crashes, my helicopter still can fly very well.  You can check it out by watching the practice video below.  I believe that it is a must for an absolute beginner just like me.  Its part availability is good too, so you can repair it easily. While the JJRC M05 has a good capability of flying, it is not expensive at all.  You can get it on eBay for under $60.     I am practicing with my JJRC M05 inside a public parking lot.   Take a close look at my flying JJRC here.

Wltoys V911s review, an excellent entry point to the RC helicopter flying

 


Why Wltoys V911s is the excellent entry point for Rc helicopter flying.
There are 9 points why Wltoys V911s is a great entry point for flying RC helicopters.
  • Wltoys V911s has a low price point - around $70 on eBay, and $45 on Aliexpress (the shipment takes about a month).
  • Wltoys V911s is very durable - I will make a video to show you this later.  I had a couple of crashes with this RC helicopter, and nothing broke yet.
  • There is a lot of spare parts available on the market, so it is not really a toy but a model.  Availability of the spare parts means once you break the helicopter, you can fix it - here is the link to find the spare parts.
  • Once you learn how to control the Wltoys V911s, you can control any 4 channel RC helicopter such as Wltoys V912 and V913.  It is not as easy to control as the Firefox C129, in fact, it should be the next RC helicopter after you get bored with the C129 that is good for getting used to flying orientation.  V911s requires you to put some effort into this learning process so you will not get bored with it.
  • Wltoys V911s ' construction is very simple, so you will not find any trouble fixing this RC helicopter.  I am over 56 and have bad eyesight, and I can do it, so do you.
  • Wltoys V911s has 4 channels, so it can perform most of the actions a regular helicopter performs; it can fly forward, backward, up, down, turn left and right, and sideways.
  • Wltoys V911s can fly in an open space that has some wind - around 15 KPH.  It is great for small park flying.
  • This morning, I flew my Wltoys V911s and did not pay enough attention.  I was hit by the rotor group and did not feel hurt.  I can conclude that it is safe for anyone who is 14 years old or plus.
 





 
The only weakness of the Wltoys V911s is its very thin canopy, and I found that you can use the canopy made for Firefox C129 that is much more durable than the one of V911s.

Note for flying this micro RC helicopter - Wltoys V911s:

When you first fly the Wltoys V911s, throttle control is important, you have to move the left stick slowly and precisely (mode 2).  If you move the stick up too much, your RC helicopter will fly to the sky immediately and you will lose control of it.  Once it is high in the sky, you will become nervous, but you should not move the stick down too fast; otherwise, it will drop to the group immediately.  The keyword is patience.  You have to do it carefully and be watchful.   Remember, practices make perfect.  Hope you have a wonderful flying experience with the Wltoys V911s.

Get the cheapest version of this Z608 (K99) drone only if you really want one.

  Get the cheapest version of this Z608 (K99) drone only if you really want one. This is not a good toy flying over the sky. Weaknesses: I tried several times and found out that there is no obstacle avoidance function even after pressing the key on the top left corner. On the transmitter, you will see a label saying that the obstacle avoidance function is only allowed in open space. You can see this video to find out how this function failed on my drone. I also found out that the propeller guards cannot be secured.  Unlike many other drones, They are not inserted into the body of the drone. After the failure of the obstacle avoidance function, all the propeller protection guards dropped to the ground.  It proves that the guards provide no protection.  Here are the reasons why: I also found out that its zoom-in function is nonexistent, but it is mentioned in advertisements. I ask the seller how to use this function, and according to the seller’s instruction, I put my two fingers togethe
