JJR/C recently announced the upgraded model of their Elfie selfie drone.
This features a more elegant design and a novel one-hand ‘Gravity Sensor’ controller.
JJR/C Elfie+ unboxing
I recently received one of these drones to take a closer look at.
In the video I unpack the drone for the first time and check out what it comes bundled with.
Furthermore there is a quick overview of the app, as well as a couple of (very) short flights.
JJR/C Elfie+ specifications
This means that the H47 drone is capable of autonomously maintaining flight altitude at the desired level.
The alt-hold feature should prove very useful when you are recording selfie videos.
The camera also features Wi-Fi FPV. This means that you can display the camera’s real-time image feed on your smartphone or tablet.
According to the specs the 500mAh Li-Po battery should allow about 7 minutes of fly time.
The battery is wire-free and can be swapped in just seconds.

JJR/C Elfie+ round up
For £35 ($57 CDN) this certainly is a good-looking drone. The carry case is neat and you get everything expect the 2xAAA batteries for the controller. But, as you can use your smartphone via the app, this doesn’t appear to be essential.
I look forward to taking the drone out for a proper flight soon. Stay tuned for a full review soonish.
The drone is available in blue or ‘coffee’.
