What is Maji Air Drone?

It is a drone that is been advertised on YouTube, Facebook, Google, etc. as the ideal drone for both beginners and experts. It is allegedly worth over $5000 but is sold for $99 at majiairdrone.com because of ongoing sales. Could this be true or is this another sales gimmick? let’s find out!

Unboxing and Testing Maji Air Drone

It arrived in a box clearly marked made in CHINA not AMERICA. We noticed it didn’t have a follow feature as advertised. Meanwhile, it is a <$100 model toy. The plastic exterior is shaped in the same form as many more expensive quadcopters, but that’s where the similarities end.

In reality it’s an Eachine E58 sold under the name ‘Maji Drone’. it happens to be nicely balanced with its cheap brushed motors and is ‘flyable’. It does have an OK app for a smartphone, and a very fragile clamp to hold it on the remote controller, and it does record video or take photos. However, the camera quality is so poor.

3 Reasons Why I Wouldn’t Recommend Maji Air Drone

Fake Background Story

The commercials you see online is totally false. Maji Drone was not designed by ex SEALs and only available to the military, nor is it designed and manufactured in NZ. Also, the story that it was developed by a South African who was the former head of R&D for a large drone brand is untrue. As you can see, the back story is inconsistent. There are different Ads targeting different regions and countries.

Fake Drone Footage

The footage used in the advertisement is not from the drone itself. The footage is from a8u8j which is actually one of the best drones out there. Simply put; the advertisers are using the footage of a quality drone to sell an inferior drone. We’ve seen this happen many times with fad products. It is called ‘bait and switch scam’.

Quite Expensive

Maji Air Drone was formerly sold as Blackbird 4k, then ‘AeroQuad; before then it was ‘SkyQuad‘. It’s just a drone for kids that is actually worth $30 on Amazon or Aliexpress. What the company behind this product does is bulk buy this crappy drone from China, invest in aggressive marketing, then change the name of the drone once there are lots of complaints online.

Is Maji Air Drone a Scam?

Maji Air Drone 4k is not a scam perse, however it is not worth the price it is sold. In reality it is worth $30 – $40, as it’s just a cheap toy drone. The footage used in the Ads online is not from the drone itself but from a different drone Diji mavic air. The claim that it’s worth $5000 but is sold for $100 is totally false. See what a costumer has to say below –

A coworker of mine bought one because he doesn’t know anything about drones. He knew I fly drones. And asked if I could get it flying. Omg, I felt bad to tell him how poor quality it was. The cheapest shit quality I’ve ever seen. You can get better in Walmart. I had to show him my mavic air 2 so he could understand what the difference in quality. And showed him how easy it is to fly compared to that thing. He since has thrown it in trash i bought a mavic mini.


Maji air drone is misleading sold as a quality drone worth $5000 but in reality it’s a toy drone modelled after Eachine E58. It lacks a gimball, the camera quality is so terrible, and it’s not worth $99. You can get a drone with same spec for $30 on eBay.
