The U45W Blue Jay Quadcopter is versatile and has some really great features which mean that it’s absolutely ideal for not only beginner Drone pilots but also intermediates as well.
The HD camera has a specification of 720p (provides images that are 1280 x 720 pixels) and takes both video and still photos which you can easily download to your mobile device.
It also has FPV (First Person View) so you can stream in real-time live video of what your Drone camera is seeing, making for a better flight experience.
This is also compatible with VR Headsets for a totally immersive FPV experience (headset not included).
The controls are easy to understand and master on the controller, or if you prefer can be transferred to your mobile device via the app.
We then come to the flight assisting functions which are great for beginners.
The U45W comes with 1 key take off and landing making it easy to do both.
This is complemented by an altitude hold function, so once you take off the Drone will hover awaiting further commands.
There is also headless mode which works by making the forward direction of the Drone the same as your remote controller, rather than fixed with the nose direction, which makes life less complicated.
It has a 6-Axis Gyro flying control system to stabilize flying and also the ability to perform 3D rolls with one press of a key.
Last but not least is a great feature not common with this range of Drone and which really sets the U45W apart from it’s rivals – Customs Route Mode.
Custom Route Mode allows you to use your mobile device via the app to trace your desired route on a map on the screen and then the U45W will automatically fly that route – very cool!
Overall this is a fantastic Drone for beginners and intermediate flyers and we feel you get a lot for your money as this is a great quality product that has it all – fun, excitement and FPV flying.
Due to the charging time versus flight time which is around 8 minutes, it’s great that the U45W comes with 2 batteries already so you can enjoy the fun for twice as long!
