Watch it in action below or keep reading to find out more about the MJX Bugs 3 Mini.
MJX Bugs 3 Mini
This little brushless quadcopter is a lot of fun. MJX took a lot of the positives from their popular Bugs 3 drone and shrank them to create the Bugs 3 Mini. Is it the right drone for you? Keep reading to find out.
The Bugs 3 Mini really is a lot like its big brother the MJX Bugs 3. It is a fun, fast and versatile quadcopter. It also is a very durable drone, so if you crash on occasion like I do this is a pretty solid option.
MJX Bugs 3 Mini Specs
It will be powered by 1306 2750Kv brushless motors and checks in at 186 grams. It is a small and lightweight quad. It looks to be about the same size as the popular DJI Spark. While both of these are brushless, they are very different drones.
While the Bugs 3 mini will not initially ship with a camera you can add the C5007 camera from MJX. It was designed to be able to fit into the small MJX Bugs 3 Mini. It is a 720p 5G WiFi camera that will connect to the MJX Bugs GO app. You could also add your own 5.8 GHz camera for lower latency and pair it with FPV goggles.
The exclusion of an included camera is a little disappointing. While 5G WiFi cameras are definitely better than traditional WiFi camera it will have some latency. That will make flying FPV difficult, but not impossible. Since this is more of a beginner/intermediate brushed micro that is probably ok. We recommend adding your own FPV 5.8GHz camera. We borrowed the camera from our Bugs 8.
One of the best features will be that the Bugs 3 Mini will be able to fly in both angle and acro modes. This is a HUGE plus for pilots that want to be able to learn how to fly like the big boys.
Hopefully, eventually, MJX will be offering similar packages to the Bugs 8 Pro where you can buy the drone, drone + camera or drone + camera + FPV goggles. The Bugs 3 Mini will start around $100 without the included camera. Right now you can save an extra $20 if you order from TomTop on the link below with the code: HTY20MXM
