There’s more and more drones with brushless motors so we decided to compare the three most favorite devices in one article to simplify your decision making.

Currently, we don’t have any device tested, but two of them are on their way and as soon as they arrive, we’ll start the comparison. Today, we’ll take a look at specs and try to determine the winner from the battle of JJRC X1 vs. XK X251 vs. XK X252.


The cheapest one from the threesome is JJRC X1 which can be purchased for $105,5. Its equipment is a bit poor. It doesn’t have a camera and headless either. The range is around 300 meters and battery has the capacity of 1300 mAh which is sufficient for like 13 minutes of flying. The dimensions of this drone are 21 x 21 x11 cm.

XK X251

Much more faster drone than X1 with the speed of up to 20 m/s. However, its equipment is pretty much the same. X251 doesn’t have headless and camera either. In this case, it’s possible to purchase it additionaly. The battery has the capacity of 950 mAh so the life is a bit shorter – approximately 12 minutes. XK X251 costs $129.89.

XK X252

The best equipped drone from this threesome is able to reach the speed of up to 75 km/h. It has an integrated HD camera and FPV transmission at the frequency of 5,8 GHz. The flight time and range are the same as for the previous device – 12 minutes and 300 meters. XK X252 costs $174.99 and if we don’t long for a camera, I would rather purchase X251.

XK X251 seems to be the best choice, it doesn’t have a camera, but the one X252 has may not be very reliable.
