Meet the JJRC H37 Elfie — the Affordable Foldable Selfie Drone
JJRC is one of the most active toy drone manufacturers in the market, constantly releasing new exciting products. Drone after drone, JJRC has made sure every single new product excels in two specific key-factors: specifications (such as range and flight time) and ease of use. If you are looking for an affordable drone that combines great specs, features and ease of use, JJRC is one of those brands you should consider. One of their newest products, the JJRC H37 Elfie, is one of the most affordable and portable toy drones we have seen this year.
Without further due, let’s discuss what is great about this quadcopter. First, the H37 is an ultra-portable camera drone. How is it portable? Well, besides measuring 15.5 x 13.5 x 2.5 cm in size, the drone arms can also be folded in (which reduces it to 6.50 x 13.50 x 2.50 cm when folded), making it the ideal size to fit into a small backpack or even your pocket. Extremely easy to transport, anywhere, everywhere, without any hassle, great for travelling or even if you just intend to carry it around in your pocket on any day so you won’t miss great selfie opportunities.
- Foldable compact design
- WiFi FPV
- HD 720P camera
- Flight time: 8 – 15 mins
- Control range: approximately 100m
- Camera can be tilted
- Headless Mode and One Key Return flight modes

Secondly, it comes with a built-in low-resolution HD 720P camera with a lens that can be tilted. The H37 Elfie can be flown with the camera pointed toward the pilot using in Headless Mode, therefore enabling great “selfie” photos to be taken. In fact, if you are looking for an affordable drone to help you get that perfect “selfie”, you will be very pleased by what JJRC H37 ELFIE allows you to do just that. The third feature that makes the H37 a true low-cost “selfie” drone is its G-Sensor Control.
This function enables the drone to be flown using your smartphone’s movement, thus making it very easy to control when taking selfies from the air. Tilt your phone to the right and the H37 will move to the right, tilt your phone forward and it will move forward and so forth. It’s that intuitive when flying the H37 using G-Sensor Control.
Now that we have discussed its “selfie” capabilities, its portability, foldable design and camera, let’s move on to some of its other neat features and specifications. The H37 features WiFi FPV — live video which is transmitted directly (with some lag and occasional image freezes since this is WiFi FPV and not 5.8G) to the pilot’s smartphone through via a free app which is available for both Android and iOS.
In fact, the entire drone is controlled via the pilot’s smartphone device via the same app since it doesn’t come with a conventional 2.4Ghz controller. This makes it easier for the pilot to carry around the ELFIE drone without having also to carry a remote controller. Just take out the drone from your pocket, connect it to your smartphone and start flying! Other features the H37 has besides Headless Mode and G-Sensor Control are: the One-Key Return, 360º aerial rotations and LED Lights. JJRC H37 can be charged via USB (about 45 minutes charging time), has a flight time raging between 8 to 15 minutes and has a maximum control distance of 100 meters.
To conclude JJRC H37 ELFIE is a very affordable foldable camera drone, perfect to carry in your pocket or in a backpack. This portability makes it great when you need to take videos, wefies or selfies anytime, anywhere.
