Eachine Assassin 180 racing quadcopter with GPS and FPV goggles
Although the Eachine Assassin 180 is a small size racing quadcopter, it comes with all the features of the big ones including a GPS positioning system.
This new Eachine racing quadcopter has a nice design but not a KILLER one that would deserve the “Assassin” code name :)
In the front of the aircraft there is a 520TVL camera which is dedicated for first person flights, without any recording function. Those who want to use this mini racer for aerial filming can install a secondary RunCam2 alike camera on the top of the aircraft.
At first sight, my only disappointment regarding this Eachine Assassin is around the flight autonomy. Being powered with a 3s 1000 mAh Li-Po battery, it has only about 7-9 minutes of flight time. The battery is a “smart” one, with charge level indicator LEDs.
The package also includes a FPV goggles which allows to display real-time images from the quadcopter camera and flight parameters like: altitude, flight speed and battery voltage.
BTW, this small racing quadcopter is build around the tiny Naze32 flight controller which is based on the STM32 32bit MCU.

I charge the copter and then go thru the start up and it doesn’t fly. The red lights are solid and the blue continue to flash with no liftoff.
looks more like a bug than a killer assassin :)
anyway it seems to be overpriced….
