A common complaint is about the flight range, advertised at 200 ft. Some complain that you’re lucky to get half that. To be fair, though, flight range depends on factors like battery power level and signal.

The camera at the heart of all of this isn’t dramatically different, but that’s not really a bad thing. It can capture in multiple file types, in a 4K or 2.7K resolution at 24 or 25 frames per second, or in 1080p (or 720p) at up to 120 fps. It still can’t be swapped out for any of your GoPros, but it remains capable of taking perfectly solid shots and smooth video. It’s hard to imagine many people complaining about it. A slightly more flexible gimbal helps.

Despite that, however, MJX X708W is a great entry-level drone with camera. Let’s take a closer look and see what’s so good about it…
