Unique design - shaped like a rocket
You surely have noticed how different this drone is from all the rest. Shaped like a rocket, JJRC H51 can be folded in and out, making it easier to transport. When folded, the drone is only 13 x 13 x 16.5cm, meaning it can fit practically any backpack. Unfolded it becomes a large drone (30 x 30 x 17.5cm).
The JJRC H51 Rocket Drone's landing gear is made from a good type of material called ABS plastic. This material has also been used in the entirety of the drone, making it lightweight but robust. Drone's total weight is only 155 grams. It comes in two different colors: white and black.
Flight performance out of this world
JJRC H51 Rocket Drone is a great fit to any beginners. Thanks to the 6-axis Gyroscope system that ensures stability and a smooth hover, thus being easy to control and fly. The learning curve of H51 is really low, you will be surprised how well it performs both indoor and outdoor.

The drone can be controlled either by a 2.4GHz remote controller (included in the package) or through an app free to download and install on any smartphones (Android and iOS). The connection to the app is done via WiFi.
Above average max control range and flight time
JJRC is a drone manufacturer that takes great consideration to how far a drone can fly, knowing most pilots consider control range as a very important spec.

Powered by a 3.7V 1000mAh battery, H51 can stay in air for periods of 8 to 9 minutes (per battery). Of course, if it carries extra weight, the flight time will be shortened.
