JXD 518 Range Test [2018] – how far can it fly?


Welcome to another range test!

This time we take out the JXD 518 and check how far it can actually fly. Essentially this drone is the same as the JJRC H55 Tracker.

With a few minor remarks this drone can be quite awesome, especially for the money you pay, offering GPS and awesome telemetry via its app. However the WiFi function needs the higher range of 5G WiFi coverage, which not all smartphones are capable of.


Here are some of the feature highlights:

– Beautiful and attractive design
– 2.4GHz remote control technology
– GPS positioning and altitude hold functions provide stable flight
– One-key taking off/landing;/emergency stop for extreme occations
– High/low speed, one key return
– 720P camera
– Wifi control and app with telemetry
– LED light for night tracking
