HJ W609 nano hexacopter costs $19

Another nano hexacopter goes on sale, this time under $20 shipped worldwide


It seems like this month is going to be dedicated to nano hexacopters. After the MJX X901 giveaway on RC Drone Arena, a couple new nano hexacopters have been launched in the JJRC H20 (read more here) and the HJ W609 (product listing).

The HJ W609 comes from a rather unknown OEM… or so it seems. Thankfully, at $19 shipped worldwide, it doesn’t cost a lot.

Unlike the JJRC H20, the HJ W609 does not feature prop guards. It looks a lot similar in design to the MJX X901/X900, one would conclude.

Key Specifications

  • Model: HJ W609
  • Size group: Nano
  • Battery: 150mAh
  • Camera: N/A
  • Headless mode: No
  • Other: –
  • Price: $19 shipped (as of 7/17/2015)

As you’d have seen from the specifications table above, the HJ W609 comes with a 150mAh battery which according to the maker lasts about 5 minutes in flight after a 30-40 minute flight.

What is surprising is the lack of headless mode and other usual features such as one key return that make an appearance on affordable quadcopters and hexacopters these days.

Nonetheless, you can order one for yourself for $19 shipped wordlwide.
