If you are looking for a drone to mount your GoPro or similar sports cam on, then you might be interested in the DROCON Blue Bugs brushless drone, which for all intents and purposes actually is the successful MJX Bugs 3.
Let’s begin with its best selling feature — the four powerful brushless motors it’s equipped with. The MT1806 1800kv motors ensure high performance with a maximum lift of 230 grams, better power efficiency at about 50% less consumption and incredibly longer life compared to “normal” brushed motors.
The drone sports ESCs with built-in automatic lock protection and high temperature lock protection. So you won’t have to worry about motor or ESC burning out due to dead lock.
Also thanks to these brushless motors, you should be able to mount pretty much any sports camera on the market and the drone should carry it no problem. Since we’re talking about the camera, the DROCON Blue Bugs can be equipped with a GoPro or Xiaomi Yi camera, but you can mount any other camera as long as you’re willing to slightly modify it to better fit one
The DROCON Blue Bugs is controlled via 2.4GHz signal and it has an operating range of about 300-500 meters, which should be enough to keep you pretty interested. There’s also a smart remote control alarm function which will make the transmitter buzz when battery voltage is low or the drone is getting too far.
Finally, the drone packs a massive 7.4V 1800mAh capacity battery which will allow you to fly for about 15 to 18 minutes on a full charge. That’s a very good autonomy considering you’ll be carrying a relatively heavy action camera on it at all times.
