MJX Bugs 19 Mini Drone

MJX Bugs 19 Mini | Best Beginner Drone under 250 grams?

The MJX Bugs 19 is the newest entry into the growing “Mini” class of drones. Drones that weigh less than 250 grams have fewer restrictions in many countries and offer advantages beyond just their smaller size.  DJI has made two models, the Mavic Mini and the Mini 2 Xiaomi and Hubsan have followed suit with their own versions of the Mini. Now it is MJX’s turn at the sub-250 gram Mini. The MJX Bugs lineup has churned out a handful of good value drones and the B19 looks like another winner.

There are two versions of the MJX Bugs 19. The B19 4K and the B19 EIS. The difference between the two seems to be limited to the camera resolution. The B19 4K appears to be able to shoot 4K video, whereas the B19 is limited to 1080p. Both should utilize MJX’s electronic image stabilization to help smooth out shaky footage. This would be a great beginner drone, especially if it falls in the sub $200 range as there isn’t anything currently at this price range with these capabilities under 250 grams.

MJX B19 Features

This will be a GPS drone that will also feature optical flow sensors for added stability. The Bugs 19 will use 1503, 2900KV motors that will help give it a flight time of around 20 minutes. We expect a range of 800 meters, but the FPV video feed being about half that distance. The B19 will have a follow me, tapfly, orbit and return to home modes.

Should you get the MJX Bugs 19?

The MJX B19 is still in the testing phases, but we like what MJX has done in the past. If this drone can deliver a stabilized camera under 250 grams for around $200 we would absolutely recommend it. Will it beat out the DJI Mini or Mini 2? We don’t think so. However, it may be a solid alternative to the Xiaomi Fimi Mini and Hubsan Mini drones.
