MJX Bugs 3 H: Altitude Hold on the Bugs is Coming!

The new altitude hold Bugs 3 is finally here. The Bugs 3H is the original with the awesome addition of altitude hold.  We were actually sent an early prototype of this Bugs 3 with altitude hold and it was an excellent quadcopter. You can see the prototype in action below. You can preorder from TomTop and save with the code: HYNMJX

The MJX Bug 3 H may not be all that different from the original, but it does have interesting styling. It is still unknown if it will feature altitude hold or altitude hold and optical flow like one of the models we tested above.

The MJX Bugs 3 H is a solid addition to the Bugs 3 line up.

The Bugs 3H will feature the same powerful and efficient brushless motors as the original Bugs 3. It will have similar performance, but altitude hold seems to limit the drone a little bit. Like the prototype we tested, you will be able to turn altitude hold off and on. This allows for a little more freedom when flying.

Take a look at the MJX Bugs 3 H from above.

MJX is producing three different camera options for the new Bugs models. You have the option of their C4000, C5000, and C6000 cameras. All three are 8 MP HD cameras the difference being the C4000 records video in 1080p, the C5000 is 720p and has built-in 5G WiFi that will work with the Bugs app, the top-of-the-line C6000 is 1080p and has built-in WiFi that also will connect to the Bugs app. The new Bugs is also capable of carrying a GoPro, or other compatible action cameras if you already have your own. We strongly recommend the 1080p Camera with WiFi. The WiFi likely won’t have a ton of range but it will help you line up close range photographs.

The different camera options with the MJX Bugs 3 H makes it a versatile quad.

We are we are glad that MJX has decided to produce this Bugs 3 H model. The version we tested was solid and we are hoping the final production model will be even better.

Like the original Bugs 3 H they have a bright LED in the front.

There are a lot of promising upcoming drones from MJX including the Bugs 3 Mini, Bugs 3 H, Bugs 3 Pro, Bugs 5WBugs 8 Pro and Bugs 10H.
