In this DBPOWER MJX X400W review, we have tried to show how simple it is to fly the gadget. The manufacturer made it beginner-friendly in many different ways.

Unfortunately, the MJX X400W manual is written in poor English. That said, controlling the quadcopter is mostly intuitive, and since you have some room for error, you can simply try flying it in a safe environment till you get it right.

Remote Control

The remote control has a nice design. It has 12 control buttons in total, all placed conveniently within reach of your fingers. The remote runs on 3 AA batteries and these do not come in the original package.

With the remote control, you can turn on headless mode, and this will allow you to control the UAV easily without having to consider the front side of the gadget.

The transmitter responsivity of the remote control is also very high. It is advisable that you start with the lowest speed as you get a feel of the drone.

Flying the Drone

Flying the drone is quite simple, even for beginners. The only challenge you are bound to experience is with the high speed of the gadget. It will take some time for the transmitter to synchronize with the quadcopter.

To be safe, you should start from the lowest speed and increase as you get to understand the different levels. Otherwise, it is easy for you to fly the drone out of range, which may result in its loss.

You can try your first flight in an enclosed place. The drone has a sturdy design and can crash several times without it enduring any damage. In addition, the package comes with four spare propeller blades.

Another alternative is to fly it in an open field where you can track it easily, especially if you are not using the real-time video transmission feature. The best time for this exercise would be early in the morning when traffic is low.

It is advisable to turn on headless mode when flying for the first time. This way, only the directions in the transmitter matter. The propellers are all colored white to make it even less confusing for you.

Unlike many other gadgets, this one is very steady and stable when in the air. This makes it simpler to control, even for the inexperienced. The manufacturer managed to make it steady by using the 6 axis gyro technology.

Before flying the drone, you might also want to connect it to your phone so that you can view the real-time video transmission. You can do this by connecting your phone to the gadget’s Wi-Fi.

It will also be necessary to download the MJX app. With this feature, you will be able to enjoy aerial views and can even snap photos when you get a nice image.

We hope that this DBPOWER MJX X400W review has also made it clear that the drone flies for 8 to 9 minutes when fully charged.

The charge will get depleted over this period, so you should always limit you flying time to a maximum of 9 minutes. You don’t want your quadcopter to land in a crash, which could result in potential damage to its parts.

What’s in the Box?

The package of the drone contains:

  • One quadcopter with camera;
  • A transmitter;
  • The 3.7V 750mAh battery;
  • USB charging cable;
  • Four spare propellers;
  • The user manual;
  • A screwdriver.

Our Verdict

As you have probably concluded from this DBPOWER MJX X400W review, this quadcopter is one of the best you will find for the price. It is rich in useful and necessary features that are obviously missing in other gadgets. Some of these are the FPV capability and 6 axis gyro technology.

These allow the drone to fly very steadily and the videos transmissions are, therefore, very pleasant to watch. When you get a nice view, you can even snap a picture. If you have already used this gadget, please leave your thoughts in the comment section below!
