JXD has just come out with a drone that will remind most of you of the latest DJI Spark and you wouldn’t be wrong. The JXD 518 does indeed seem to be heavily inspired by DJI’s drone while still packing some high-end features. Let’s have a closer look!
What makes the JXD 518 standout from the competition is the fact that the drone does not just clone the Spark’s look but also come with features such as GPS positioning, Altitude Hold mode and One-Key Take Off / Landing.
