What Is DJI Ocusync and How Does It Work?

Ocusync is a transmission technology by DJI that debuted with the DJI Mavic Pro in September 2016. In the drone market, this advanced transmission system from DJI leads the industry. It comes in versions 1.0 and 2.0, and both of them ride on the success of the Lightbridge transmission technology.

What is a drone transmission system?

When you are looking for your first drone and you find terms like transmission system, they might sound like technical jargon. Transmission system means the technology by which the drone communicates with the remote controller or the internet-enabled devices that you will be using to control the drone.

With that enlightenment, you can guess that better or more advanced transmission systems give longer flight range. In addition, advanced transmission offers better responsiveness in regard to how the drone obeys commands that you key in on the remote controller or mobile app.

Since the invention of FPV drones, manufacturers have been looking for ways to increase the image transmission range digitally and with the lowest latency possible.

WiFi vs Lightbridge Transmission

Before they added Ocusync transmission to their portfolio, DJI used WiFi transmission and Lightbridge, with Lightbridge being more robust.

WiFi transmission for drones comes in two versions. First, there is the 2.4GHz, which has a longer range but slower speed. Today, you will find that many drones come with a 2.4GHz remote controller.

On the other hand, there is the 5GHz WiFi transmission. Now, this means the 5.8GHz WiFi that has faster speed but covers a shorter range. Therefore, if your drone supports 5G WiFi, you can connect to it when you want to fly it in your backyard or indoors.

Lightbridge transmission gave users a better option than regular WiFi transmission, which unfortunately is only able to transmit signal within a short range. It also experiences interruptions from other WiFi devices.

HR iCAMERA3 H3 Drone Review

The HR iCamera3 H3 camera drone comes in two color options, which are black and orange. In addition, you can buy it with one, two or three battery options. Of course, we would recommend that you go for the package with two or three batteries so that you can have more fun.

Since one battery can give you a flight time of 25 minutes, two of them would give you a longer and more fun time with the quadcopter.

Other things that this quad comes with include GPS connection and several automatic flight functions. At first glance, this looks like a good quadcopter for beginners.

However, it also has a downside or two. For instance, there have been complaints about the quality of the camera. Therefore, it might not be a true 6K HD camera as the manufacturer claims, but we will find out in the coming sections.

HR H14 Drone Review

For an affordable amount of money, you can order the HR H15 5G drone if you are looking for a cheaply priced quad. It is good for learning how to fly and then later, you can upgrade to a bigger one with more specs if you want.

While this is a small and lightweight quadcopter, it will bring you many of the features that you get with some of the bigger models and brands. Keep reading as we look at the features and technical details, the camera quality, battery and many others.

F-Cloud HMO-F3 4K Drone Review

For an affordable amount of money, you can have the F-Cloud HMO-F3 drone that comes in a unique, almost cylindrical shape. This makes it look a bit distinguished from many other drones of its size and price range.

However, price and unique shape do not make a good drone. Many more things such as the material, camera quality, battery and flight time make a good quadcopter.

Therefore, here, we shall explore the features of the aircraft. In addition, we shall also look at its pros and cons. That way, you will make up your mind whether to buy it or not.

But before we do that, every quadcopter has its downsides and this one is not any different. For instance, this is not a foldable drone. Although it is light in weight, being foldable would have made it so easy to carry when traveling. This might or might not be a deal breaker for some buyers.

Keep reading to see the features.

Potensic Elfin Mini Drone Review

The black and white Potensic Elfin Mini Done for kids and adult beginners is a good looker. In addition, it is a Potensic, which places it far ahead of many other mini drones in the market when it comes to build quality.

However, it takes much more to make a good mini drone that can hold a stable flight, take good quality pictures and offer a decent flight time. In that case, we are going to look at the features of this mini drone, the camera quality as well as the flight functions.

While the Elfin Mini is a good quadcopter for beginners, it has some downsides too. For instance, it is a bit too bulky with the propeller guards on. Therefore, it “refuses” to fit in the storage bag so you have to tinker with the guards when you are done flying.

Another downside is that the videos and images appear a bit shaky. There is no gimbal, which means the camera is not stabilized. Therefore, you can only take good footage when there is no wind or when you get the quadcopter to hover.

But not all is lost, as you will see in the features and flight functions.
