MJX X300C Quadcopter Drone [Product Review]

I was sent a free drone for review earlier this year, an MJX X300C Quadcopter Drone. It was a pretty cool toy, and I was looking forward to having fun with it. MJX X300C Quadcopter Drone While the battery was charging, which took about forty minutes, I read the instruction manual. There were a lot of pictures in it, which was just as well. The manual was clearly written in another language and then translated into English by a non-native speaker. It was rather unreadable, although I persevered. In the end I found some better instructions on the internet. I started off testing it a little indoors. I got it paired with my mobile phone.

Product Review – MEElectronics Air-Fi Runaway AF32 Bluetooth Headphones

I must say that it is oddly liberating not having a wire attached to my phone while listening to music. In the box you get the headphones, a USB charging cable and a backup flat cable with two jacks for using with devices that don't have bluetooth. There is also a storage bag  and a very good set of instructions on pairing the bluetooth with a range of devices including apple iPads and iPhones, android tablets and phones, blackberry smartphones and other bluetooth devices.

It changed the volume, skipped to the next and previous tracks, paused…
