The Bugs 3 drone has a number of features and specs which help make it a powerful drone. Here are some of the best ones:

Build quality:

This MJX mini drone is built from plastic and carbon fiber. While relatively sturdy, the drone is larger than other compact drones in the market (such as the DJI Spark or the DJI Mavic). That being said, users have reported that the drone can withstand falls and other bumps and bruises with little to no damage to the chassis.


The Bugs 3 features a ‘brushless motor’ which helps it to fly. These motors are a new generation of drone motors which have been specifically designed to be reliable and have less moving parts, which decreases the chance that the motors break down during flight. In addition, the Bugs 3 features a best in class motor which is very power efficient (which leads to great battery life).

Bugs 3 Mini Battery life:

One of the most important features of drones is the battery size and the associated flight time. Back when drones were in their infancy, even the highest end drones only boasted a few minutes. Nowadays, thanks to power efficient motors and ever increasing battery capacities, we are seeing longer and longer flight times.

The Bugs 3 is one of those drones which does not disappoint in battery stamina. The 1800 mAh rechargeable battery is rated for up to 20 minutes of flight time with moderate speed settings, and even longer if you are conservative with flying. This stamina is similar to what you would see even in more expensive drones in higher price brackets.

The charging time is rated at 2 hours from 0 – 100% charge. This is somewhat on the higher side considering the size of the battery, and could be a reason why an extra battery might be a good idea to have in your bag.

MJX Bugs 3 Mini Range:

The Bugs 3 communicates with the included transmitter using the 2.4Ghz wireless radio frequency (that’s similar to the radios used in WiFi routers, except stronger). This wireless radio technology is popular in entry level drones. This means that the effective range of the drone is up to 1600 feet before you start losing signal.

This range is relatively decent for entry-level drones, but if you are looking for ranges beyond that you will have to start looking into the extended range drones with GPS built in for precise flights – however these come at the expense of a higher starting price.

Even though the Bugs 3 drone has a range of 1600 feet, it is always recommended to fly the drone while keeping it in sight – so you avoid any potential accidents.

Flight features:

The Bugs 3 drone also features a number of features in flight which assist in the smooth control and operation of the drone. Here are a few of them below:

The drone comes with an intelligent flight chip on board which assists with automatic lock protection and high temperature lock protection. These features help protect against the drone from locking up or seizing which can lead to drone failure.

The Bugs 3 also features a six-axis gyroscope, which is good for providing a stable flight even in windy environments. It also helps with stability in photography and video recording. This gyroscope enables other features such as one touch ‘3D flips’ and other acrobatic functions.

A bright white LED light is installed on the nose of the drone and is useful for making you and other people aware of its location during flight.


As previously mentioned, this drone does not include an inbuilt camera – instead, it includes a camera mount which the manufacturer claims is compatible with both the GoPro and Xiaomi series of action cameras.

MJX also offers two optional photography accessories for the Bugs 3 – the C4000 HD Sport Camera and the C4022 panoramic camera. These cameras can be remotely controlled from the transmitter.

Sample footage from the C4000 camera is available on YouTube. From the sample footage, the video is relatively stable and smooth, even in windy conditions.

Missing features

While the Bugs 3 has plenty of features for the price, there are a few features which are missing from the overall package which can affect the drone experience. These include:

  • Advanced flight features: The Bugs 3 lacks advanced flight features such as ‘headless mode’ (where the drone has a fixed orientation and makes controlling the drone easier) or ‘return to home mode’ (where the drone will return to your position with a touch of a button, regardless if you can see it or not).
  • Fixed camera gimbal: The camera mount on the Bugs 3 is fixed in position – so while the drone itself remains relatively stable during flight, having a freely moving gimbal helps that much more with video footage.
  • No inbuilt camera: The drone does not come with an inbuilt camera – so if shooting drone footage is your primary concern, you may have to factor that price into the overall price of the drone.
