The Drocon Bugs 3 drone is a no-fuss, low frills high performance UAV. This drone is a speedy FPV able to support flight videography – great for drone pilots who enjoy both of these fields of drone flying.
The Drocon Bugs 3 drone (also known as the MJX B3, the Drocon Blue Bugs drone, Force1, F100) is a very competitively priced drone – exceptional, professional performance at a toy price level.
MJX Brushless Motors for Speed and Efficiency
Fast, efficient, attractive and well designed – the Drocon Bugs 3 drone’s powerful brushless motors pack a lot more bang for your buck than other drones of similar price and size. The Bugs 3 Drone could easily lay claim to the title of the world’s finest brushless drone.
The powerful low-maintenance brushless motors not only avoid the inevitable burn-out that brushed motors have to contend with, but also provide impressive power from a neat, good looking drone. The MT1806 1800kv brushless motors in the Drocon Bugs 3 can cope with loads of up to 230g – flying with a GoPro camera mounted is well within the capabilities of the Bugs 3 drone.
MJX’s own motor braking system uniquely manage each motor through the Electronic Speed Controllers to ensure flight safety and to protect the motors.
Great Flight Times, Powered Efficiently
The Drocon Bugs 3 drone is powered by a 7.4V 1800mAh battery with a recharging time of around 240 minutes. Due to the energy efficiency of the Bugs 3 design and components this battery can support decent flight times of around 18-19 minutes. The battery is securely held in a well-positioned, cleverly designed and very protective battery holder, providing extra peace of mind for battery safety.
The combination of the high capacity battery and brushless motors means that the Drocon Bugs 3 is not only fast but more than able to carry the weight of a sport camera whilst maintaining great flying times.
Drocon Bugs 3 is Built for Speed and for Videography
The well-positioned camera mount, with vibration dampening, supports GoPro, Xiaomi Xiaoyi and similar sport cameras. This allows the Bugs 3 potential racing drone to also perform as an extraordinary aerial videography drone.
Great MJX Design Incorporated in the Drocon Bugs 3
The pure nylon fibre material used for the main body of the Drocon Bugs 3 makes for a very rugged drone; the Bugs 3 can withstand swipes and impacts better than most. This is a solid drone, designed with a centre of gravity that keeps the UAV very steady in flight and able to cope with windy conditions.
Low light and night flying is made attractive and interesting by the bright LED search lights include in the body of the Drocon Bugs 3 drone.
The Drocon Bugs 3 utilises 2.4G frequency for its transmitters – 2.4G easily and reliably copes with a flying range of 500 metres, 2.4G stability is resistant to signal interference and draws less power from the battery. The remote control also incorporates smart alarm functions to alert the pilot if the battery power is low or if the signal is low (range limit warning).
The features of this Bugs 3 UAV from MJX place this drone considerably above other drones in the same price range.
