H11D is a toy rated quadcopter at a very affordable price, but don’t let the word “toy“ fool you. This new JJRC model has some great unexpected features and specifications. In fact, among RC enthusiasts, H11D is already known as a possible Syma X5C and WLtoys V686G killer. Why? Follow us as we take a deeper look into this upcoming drone. Drones Globe is always here to review and inform you on the best and most affordable quadcopters on the market, and today we bring you JJRC H11D review.

H11D specifications:

Flight time: 10 minutes
Camera: 2mp FPV
Battery type: 3.7V 1100mAh LiPo
Range: 120 meters
Transmitter Frequency: 2.4 GHz
FPV Frequency: 5.8 GHz
Features: One press automatic return, 360° eversion, remotely adjustable camera

Battery

First of all, the 3.7V 1100mAh Lip battery works amazingly well in this quadcopter. Powering flights of over 10 minutes (without camera) and around 8 to 9 minutes with camera. When battery is running low, the bright LED lights of the quadcopter will start flashing, as a warning to the pilot.

Camera

Secondly, it’s most appealing factor, the real time video transmission. H11D might just be one of the best and cheapest toy rated FPV quadcopters. One thing is for certain, it does promise to have a good quality camera. Capable of taking awesome photos and record decent quality videos. The 2MP camera also has a very useful function, it can be remotely tilted up and down through your remote controller. This is great for aerial photography and videography, and even for your FPV flights to obtain a better angle view. H11D includes its own FPV monitor, which accurately displays battery current status on screen. Transmission is done in 5.8 GHz frequency. Also includes a SD Card of 4GB to save your photos videos, as well as a USB card to plugin it in to your computer.

Range

Although H11D will most likely be the next big hit in the low-cost drones market, not everything is good. The control distance on H11D is its most negative factor. A range between the 100 and 120 meters nowadays is below average, new and lower priced quadcopters have longer control distance.

Features

H11D also has some nice features, such as the one press automatic return, meaning the quadcopter will come back to pilot. 360º eversion, with just a push of a button H11D will do a flip on air. Headless mode for easier orientation despite where the drone’s head is pointing at. Fast replaceable batteries, the new system implemented on H11D allows the pilot to quickly replace batteries within 30 seconds. A good system for more avid flyers who like using extra batteries for longer enjoyment. Each battery takes around 2 hours to charge.

Bottom line

The best bang for your buck if you are into real time video transmission quadcopters, great for beginners, hovers very well and has good yaw and sideways pitch. On the other hand it is not the most wind resistant quadcopter, so think about only taking it out to fly on calm weather.

This drone is junk. The camera and monitor were bad right out of the box. RC Moments, who I purchased it from, is unwilling to make it good.

first this review is bogus . quality is poor , while the thought was good intent . to make this drone good here is a list of what you can do . this requires time and money not sure it is worth it , i did it because of frustration right out the box , here goes;

1)install new slide switch on camera (original fails )

2)install foam on camera to stop "jello" effect

3)solder all connections on camera circuit board (cold joints & berries causing shorts)

4)modify camera antenna tx

5) used (3) phone chargers to modify all battery chargers (originals failed out the box)

6)install sma connector and 5.8ghz antenna to screen rx

7)install sma connector and 2.4 ghz antenna to remote

8)heat & reverse bend in landing gear (lowers stance to prevent tip overs and adds bounce to soften landing)

9)drill hole in body to allow antenna to come thru (better reception)

10)install (8) 3x6x2mm bearings from(la trax $10)to props

11)balance propellers using inner shaft housing with bearings

results; better handling , stabilized hover, stabilized video , better run time on battery, better response , better range, reduced vibration reducing failure .a bit costly but a good recovery from buying junk. best advice buy a better quad . jjrc will avoid any problems you bring to their attention, lacking support is not bad if you are a "true" MAcGyver. if it says" goodbang" know there is no one to help you but yourself .research for yourself and avoid reviews (i went with these reviews & it left me angry ,seeing they give "good" reviews for "free" toys) enough said , sure they won't allow this post.......

Hi Wolf,

I agree with most of things you said, but please keep in mind we're talking about $90 drone. I don't expect high quality for low price, but I still think H11D is good value for the money.

Also, why did you think we won't approve your comment? I was pretty sad when I saw your last sentence, that is not how we work !

Why is this not listed in your top 10 under $100? Just curious. Is it the range? Trying to find a good by for my son for less than $100, and having hard time picking one!

Hi Chris,
It's not listed on our "Top 10 drone sunder $100" list only because we've published that list before reviewing this drone. Personally, I think this drone gives great value for the money!
