The JJRC H47, also known as the Eachine E56, GoolRC T47 and Furibee H818, is the best ‘Elfie’ drone released to date. Earlier models have promised 720p but have been disappointing, but this new model does deliver and at a price-tag of less than $40/£30.

New to this model is an innovative single-handed transmitter which incorporates a set of internal sensors, allowing flight by simply tilting the controller, whilst also controlling throttle and yaw with the analogue controller on top of the transmitter.
This new control method takes a little getting used to, but works very well after a little practice.
It is also possible to control the drone using just the JJRC app without the transmitter, therefore giving flexibility. Within our review, we did not cover the app controls as we have covered them in past ‘Elfie’ reviews but they are below for reference.
A key difference with this Elfie model is the step up in build quality and finish, the drone showcases a glossy cover which is a far throw from the first Elfie E50 model.
