Eachine E31HW review: Mixed flight performance

Eachine E31HW drone review
Quadcopters may be getting smaller and more affordable than ever, but few can say they are perfect. At first look Eachine E31HW is a simple, easy-to-fly drone that is capable to take photos and videos. Hopefully, at the end of my review, the list of Pros will be longer than the one of the Cons. Eachine announced the E31 series in 3...

Foxeer HS1177 V2 review: Better housing, improved electronics

Foxeer HS1177 V2 FPV camera review
Foxeer's XAT600M classic FPV camera gets new skin and some extras. The upgraded Foxeer HS1177 V2 comes with metal case and wider input voltage. To be trendy, the camera is available in 3 colors (orange, blue and black). First edition of the HS1177 camera, due to its low weight and good image quality has quickly become popular among professional FPV pilots and...

Eachine TX01S camera review: Good range, Flexibility in mounting

Eachine TX01S VTX camera review
The Eachine TX01S camera is specially designed for mini FPV drones like the TinyWhoop where space and weight is critical. Due to its modular design, the TX01S VTX camera can be also successfully used on low profile aircraft. At first look, excepting the nice price tag, the biggest advantage of this combo camera over purchasing separately a camera and 5.8G VTX is that...

Foxeer Legend 3 review: 4K FPV at decent price

Foxeer Legend 3 4K camera review
While many drone camera manufacturers moved to cubic shape, Foxeer Legend 3 sees the return of the candybar form factor that Mobius debuted few years ago. Don't be afraid, the old design is paired with UHD 4K video recording which is a must have in 2017. When it comes about racing quad-copters is very hard to find a proper camera...

VISUO XS809HW quadcopter review: Poor man’s Mavic

VISUO XS809HW drone review
The VISUO XS809HW quadcopter, as you can see right at first glance, is a copy of the Mavic Pro from the market leader DJI. It features similar design with foldable arms. To be honest, not everyone wants to pay 100 or even 1000 of dollars for drones with fancy features that they can't explore. Don't mention that newbies usually destroy couple of...

Eachine ATX03 VTX review: Cheap and lightweight

Eachine ATX0 VTX review and test
Today I will review a super light VTX module for FPV drones. Weighting only 3.5g, the Eachine ATX03 is suitable for small sized quadcopters. VTX modules are used to wirelessly transmit the camera's video signal. The most common frequency for FPV is 5.8Ghz. In order to allow the use of multiple VTXs in the same time (such as during a drone race) the frequency...

Eachine Racer 250 PRO review: Nothing like the first edition

Eachine Racer 250 Pro drone review
Brushless quadcopters aren't cheap, but the Eachine Racer 250 PRO comes at a surprisingly reasonable price of $129.99, considering its nice design and impressive features. Of course, like many budget FPV drones, there are Pros and Cons to the Racer 250 Pro which I'm planning to reveal during my review. The Eachine Racer 250 PRO drone was announced in two variants, PNP and RTF. While PNP package...

FrSky Taranis Q X7 transmitter review

FrSky Taranis Q X7 review
Last week I reviewed two FrSky receivers and now it's time to review the Taranis Q X7 transmitter - which is the latest and cheapest TX from FrSky. When it comes about remote controlled gadgets, FrSky is a very popular radio system among RC fanatics. They are future packed, reliable and now also affordable. When I saw the price of the Horus X12S I was totally discouraged, my wife...

FrSky receivers with PPM, CPPM and SBUS: XSR and D8

FrSky receivers: D8 and XSR
Today I will review two FrSky receivers, the mini D8 and the XSR ACCST. While the Micro Frsky D8 features PPM and SBUS, the FrSky XSR has S-Bus CPPM output. Those who are new in the field, let me say few words about radio receivers. Their main function is to interlink wirelessly the flight controller with the transmitter (remote controller). Additionally they can offer also...

Eachine QX110 VTail quadcopter review

Eachine V-Tail QX110 quadcopter review
About a month ago I introduced this Eachine V-tail QX110 drone in the news section and now it is time for an in-depth review of this nice and versatile mini racer. Compared to other micro FPV drones that I lately reviewed, the Eachine QX110 comes with OSD, buzzer and status LED bar. Unusual I may say, because these features are found only on larger multi-rotors. Frankly,...

KingKong Tiny7 review: Tiny Whoop for less

KingKong TiNY7 drone review
Till I get the genuine one, I thought to review the KingKong Tiny 7. As you can see in the image above, it is a very good replica of the popular Inductrix FPV. The ducted propeller design proved to be not just cool but also very safe. When flying indoor or close to people, accidents are almost inevitable. Due to its...
