Calibrating the Eachine E58 drone: Step by step guide

Calibrating and resetting the Eachine E58 drone

As lately I got many comments regarding how to calibrate the Eachine E58 drone, I thought it would be helpful to make a step-by-step guide about it.

Sometimes after minor crashes, toy drones start to fly abnormally even if there are no physical damages (like faulty propellers). Performing gyro-calibration can solve sideward flying or other flight disorders.

You can reset the Eachine E58’s gyro settings in two different ways, either using the remote control or through the JY UFO phone APP.

Calibrating Eachine E58 drone by RC

Calibrating the Eachine E58 by remote controller

  • Step 1: Turn on the remote controller;
  • Step 2: Long press the power switch to turn ON the Eachine E58;
  • Step 3: Place the drone on a horizontal surface;
  • Step 4: Bind the transmitter with the drone by pushing the throttle stick to the highest position, and then pull it back to the lowest position. Solid light will indicate successful bind;
  • Final step: Move both sticks to lowest right corner (like in the image above) for about 2-3 seconds. LED lights will start to flash rapidly. Wait few seconds till the lights are solid again and you are done.

Calibrating the Eachine E58 by phone APP

Calibrating the Eachine E58 through APP is even more easier. After you connected to drone with your phone. You need to enter the settings menu (like in the image bellow) and select the “Gyro calibrate” icon. First, the LEDs will start to flash rapidly, than steady on. Finish! That was all, you are done and ready for your next flight :)

  1. Nu reusesc sa pornesc camera la drona E-58, prin telefon, cu toate ca fac operatiile conform cu indicatiile din prospect, indiferent de softwareul folosit .
    I can’t start the camera on the E-58 drone, by phone, although I do the operations according to the instructions in the leaflet, regardless of the software used.

  2. Hola me he encontrado el platiniun drone E58 y compre el control de repuesto emoticon drone E58 pero no puedo conectarlos, el dron enciende y parpadea las luces el mando también prende y al hacer los movimientos del joystick hacia arriba y abajo solo en el control las luces dejan de parpadear en el dron siguen parpadeando ayuda porfavor.
    Hello I have found the platiniun drone E58 and bought the replacement control emoticon drone E58 but I can not connect them, the drone turns on and flashes the lights the remote also turns on and when making the joystick movements up and down only in the control the lights stop flashing on the drone keep flashing help please.

  3. I can’t even get mine to bind with the controller drone lights just keep flashing. any ideas as to how i can get these 2 things to bind …followed the instructions ensured batter is fully charged.

    Press button to power controller light flashes. place drone on horizontal surface switch it on lights flash. throttle fwd full then back full light goes steady on controller lights keep flashing on drone nothing happens any help or ideas gratefully accepted

    • After you bind it, which you have done, push both sticks at the same time — left stick to the lower left and right stick to the lower right — the motors will then fire up and off you go :)

  4. Meu drone é o super endurance foldable drone o controle dele não está funcionando o que devo fazer?
    My drone is the super endurance foldable drone the control of it is not working what should I do?

  5. I’m able to start it up the e58 after flight 2 mins in the air it drops and I get quick flashy lights… any suggestions on how to fix this, please…

  6. Wow, plenty of questions and a few answers…Got mine 4 days ago done a fair bit of flying allowed by one battery. I do experience a lot of drifting. did not have a go at calibration and worry that it may not change things much from what I read here.
    I don’t find the ‘guides’ very helpful and lose them a lot as for the 2 front ‘legs’ again they keep coming off and finally lost one.
    One thing that beats me is the sd card the normal one is two big and the small one is too small. it’s a 4GB from another drone but too small? No one seems to query about it.
    I have not been able to connect my app with the drone. The Wi-Fi shows it but when I press ‘play’ on the app nothing happens only the landscape from the app! Does the camera show when it’s on / working?
    I don’t dare take it higher than 2m yet as sometimes it’s way out of control especially with some air currents. I tried to fly it back to me it drives me crazy. I’d like the app to work to use the

  7. Ok, so I actually love this little drone. It’s great once you get it tuned in. However, after a lot of flights, It is connected to my phone and the remote just fine. I follow the steps perfectly and it beeps and does everything like before. But I push up on the throttle and nothing. If I click the up trim it takes off uncontrollably. So how do I fix that? Jeff, I really need ya help, please

    • Had a similar problem. Finally gave up and set it aside. Stumped. Read later on sometimes the accelerometers can get jammed or stuck. If two or more are not in agreement they may not permit the motors to start. Fair enough, in view of the many learners’ crashes I had. So did some “percussive maintenance”. Took one of those 6” stainless rulers and gently but firmly rapped on all sides of the fuselage with its edge. Carefully, as you don’t want to make things worse. Got it to go from dead to lighting up. Ok. Motors still would not start. Not so good. Read elsewhere in comments to position remote control handles with left one to lower left and right one to lower right (spraddled, or splayed). Bingo! Spun up immediately. Took it outside for test flight. Back in service

      • p.s.
        You may have to work this into your startup procedure so be sure to take notes as you go. I went through some trial-and-error while I was at it

  8. Had I known of all of these (E58) problems or the potential for them, I wouldn’t have bought one myself. I think that if someone really has the desire to fly a drone, remember the old saying (You get what you pay for.) so, before you buy a cheap one, think twice. I think that paying $1500 from the start would be more satisfying than buying a $100 drone: especially in light of all of these problems. I’ve flown mine for about 30 minutes and now it doesn’t want to elevate. I hate to be so negative but, IT SUCKS and I’m going to leave an honest review.

    • Mine is working fine even after crushing different obstacles. Wouldn’t spend 1,5k for a toy, unless it’s not a toy but a professional tool (for example making footage with DJI ).

    • Such an extreme action may be tempting but maybe unnecessary. Please read my above comment/reply.
      If it should come to that, I’d rather crash or lose a relatively cheap unit. Bashing a $1500 unit into Mother Earth could be grounds for shooting oneself. And as a veteran of model aero planes I assure you it can happen. I fly for the recreation of it; and the idea of the camera’s bird’s-eye-view is a real bonus for me (helps to locate downed units too).

  9. Oh, if anyone else is in the market of tossing their Eachine or the like, please send it to me instead of wasting a perfectly awesome engineered piece of high tech drone. Thanks!

  10. Probably the most fun toy quadcopter I have ever owned. This launched me into owning and piloting my first DJI Mavic Air 2!! Thanks, guys for producing your video advertising this drone. Hope your business is a big success!! Cheers!!!

    • Nice one bud just got mine an it sucks.. battery life is 3 minutes. they sent me 4 all I ordered was 2 what a scam… RC boats are safer lol thx

  11. I can only view my camera through a wifi connection on the app on my phone. But once i leave the house i lose the wifi connection. I turn on my mobile phone hotspot but it wont connect to the drone and i’m unable to view anything through the app on my phone from the drones camera.

    • The wi-fi connection is between your phone and the drone you do not need wifi
      Just go to phone settings/wi-fi/connect to,,,when drone and controller are switched on and paired,
      you will see it on your phones wi-fi available network.

  12. Every time I fly my drone, immediately after takeoff it starts moving in circles and loses control, I have the guard on, but there is very little wind. Anyone know what to do?

    • Be aware of your surroundings. I took one to a park. Suburban neighbourhood, and as a bonus some condos nearby. Turned on the wifi settings on my cell phone to connect the video feed. Was amazed at the number of wifi networks, any one of which could be a potential source of radio interference. Possible reason why it wasn’t responding to the remote control so well. Just saying.

    • Try FHDFPV app on Google play store. Trying ruling this out first. If it doesn’t work and you no longer want it, please send to me. Anyway, stay safe and healthy

  13. My problem is that as soon as I insert the charged battery into the drone one propeller start to operate on high speed. That should not happen. Don’t know how to fix this.

  14. Hi,
    From unknown reason after some days it stopped flying up. Not all 4 propellers working altogether. I see each of one works separately perfect but maximum 2-3 propellers together.
    Can you please help me how to resolve this?

    • Check for debris in rotor motor gears by removing propellers. Propeller gears may not be in alignment. Did you recalibrate? Trying ruling these out first. If it doesn’t work and you no longer want it, please send to me. Anyway, stay safe and healthy

  15. My drone flew for about 3 days just fine with only one or two minor crashes. At one point, I commanded it to do a flip. Instead of a flip, all the motors shut off and it crashed on the lawn. But I was able to get it to fly again. Now, when I give it the auto take-off command, it launches up and flips back to the left and crashes. No amount of resetting, either by the controller or app, will correct this. Any ideas?

        • The only response I’ve received so far is that they believe the gyro has somehow malfunctioned or has gotten damaged. They did offer a replacement but also wanted me to remove my negative comment on Amazon. Unless this replacement arrives soon, the comment will remain.

    • the propellers are in the right order? can you measure the battery voltage, fully charged it should be around 4.20v

    • Look to see if the shaft to motor(s) that the leaves (propellers) screw on to are slightly bent. I had to replace the two front (camera side) as after a hard crash both shafts were slightly bent, though barely noticeable, causing the drone to immediately angle downward making a vertical lift off impossible. After replacing the two front (left and right axis), problem resolved.

    • You may have damaged gears after props impacted ground. Tyr removing props and remove housing to check for debris or realignment, recalibrate and restart.

  16. When I go into WiFi in my phone settings I cannot locate the wifi address for the eachine e58 ? Can anyone tell me what to do please …

    • Try FHDFPV app on Google play store. Trying ruling this out first. If it doesnt solve the issue reload yourcapp and restart your phone. Anyway, stay safe and healthy.

    • It should be on whenever the thing is on. Go into your cell ‘phone settings in wifi. You should see a list of local wifi nets, one of these should be the drone. Rather than a readable title it will be in technicalese. Cycle the aircraft on & off, you should see a change. That one is yours.
      Also, in case of difficulty, you may have to be sure everyone else in your party have their devices off wifi. If one device connects, it may not allow any others onto your “net”. So always be sure that one is yours. After you’ve hooked up, everyone else can go back to whatever. Although away from home, it’s doubtful they’re connected anyway. Which is why their units are prone to attempt hooking up to your equipment.

  17. When I use the Control panel on my mobile phone and press the record button it records perfectly. But when I try to record by pressing the record on the remote I get the two beeps but no record at all. Everything else works fine. (I tried to use the mobile to record and to use the remote to fly as I prefer the remote but the wifi will only let one device operate at any one time. By the way how do the engineers get commands into the drone ? do they plug something like an encoder into the flight pcb? before assembly. Just curious !

  18. no me funciona en modo manual, alguien me puede explicar en español como sincronizar los mandos para
    poder manejarlo.

    it does not work in manual mode, someone can explain to me in Spanish how to synchronize the controls for
    can handle it

  19. hello yesterday I received my E58 and when I plug the battery inside the drone the front right fan starts working without even turning on the drone and doesn’t stop no matter what I’m doing.
    do you know how I can fix that.

  20. Any solution for the remote beeping non stop no matter what? The drone works since it can be controlled via the app but the just keeps beeping


  21. bonjour
    je n’arrive pas à me connecter en wifi
    j’ai ce message sur l’appli jy ufo cannot turn on wifi you can turn on wifi in settings alors que je suis bien conecté en wifi au drone.

    I can not connect to wifi
    I have this message on the app UFO can not turn on wifi you can turn on wifi in settings while I am well connected to the drone wifi.
    thank you

  22. Good evening I got a E58 for Christmas and although I can get the footage on my phone and take photos the video keeps saying ‘cancel record plan’.
    How do I get around this and record footage?

  23. When I am trying to connect, new receiver eachine e58 with phone there is no wifi connection show for the eachine e58. Old eachine reciver board was damaged so bought a new receiver board but its not connecting with the phone no connection showing for it.
    How to solve it?

  24. I was enjoying the drone very much but after a few crashes the drone is not stable when he flies.
    I try to calibrate it, tried to fly with remote and via smart phone. All the motors are working and I can fly it but I have to trim it constantly (not like in the beginning) . Sometime when i land it some of the motors continue to work. Any idea what is the problem?? Motor or receiving board. How can I find the problem? Thanks in advance for your help.

    • on the app go to the settings button. on the drop down there is a but call REV. press that and it should flip it back. That lets you flip between the two views.

    • In the app top right click the menu button (last on the top right). Then click the first Icon “Rev” and that should reverse your image.

  25. my drone E58 will not bind to controller at all. when turning ON my drone the light only flashes rapidly for 5 seconds then flashes very slow.. it worked well before. now it only works with my cell phone only..

  26. there a way to make the video clear much better or you have a suggest a video to replace much better in capturing the video machine E58

  27. E58 drone, where I can find spare batteries with only one I can not understand anything, when I seem to have understood something the drone will download
    And if you can give me a tip, how to do it as soon as the drone rises from the ground how do you hold it down I’m a beginner

    • You will need to go onto the web and order one or two extra batteries for extended flying time. Also, you should get the highest capacity (mah) battery of the correct size. The ones that come with the kit are about 300-500mah and work fine but batteries of 800-1000mah are now available. The more mah capacity the more electricity they hold, giving longer flying time.
      When you start the device up, be sure to raise the left control (power) lever up very slowly until you get used to operating it. After a while, you’ll be more expert

  28. Thank you for this tutorial!
    Can you add a description on how to do the fine tuning as well? Whenever I try to fine tune my E58 it gets totally out of control. It always ends in a crash or emergency landing. The manual is no help.
    Thank you.

  29. That’s great. Going to give this a try as you rightly stated after a couple of minor bumps the unit started drifting straight away so hopefully this helps

  30. I liked the information on how to calibrate the E58, very good.
    Gostei da informação sobre como calibrar o E58, muito boa.

  31. Just got the eachine e58 drone and it was all going ALLRIGHT when it just started not to fly so I asked a friend of mine and he fixed it but then before I could connect the drone to my phone but now I can’t connect my drone to my phone please someone help me

  32. I just bought E58 today and after unboxing and connecting the battery the right front motor started spinning at full speed and will not turn off… Any ideas why this is?

    • first, contact the seller for refund. then try to open it check the wires for short circuit. but unfortunately the most possible is that the E58’s flight controller is dead.

  33. Just got the E58 (newbie) and can’t connect via WiFi with the drone. It came with WPS security activated and nowhere a default password. Can annoying help?
