Eachine E511: A nice Mavic Air clone

Eachine E511 drone quadcopter

As you can see in the image below, in terms of design, the Eachine E511 is almost identical to the more expensive Mavic Air. It has similar foldable arms and headlights. Even the strips on the props are replicated. But before you are getting too enthusiastic, similarities are limited to appearance. The Eachine E511 has almost none of the DJI’s features.

The Eachine E511 drone is available with two types of cameras. According to your budget, you can opt for a 2MP or 5MP camera. The price difference between the two versions is about $10.

Eachine E511 vs DJI Mavic Air

Thanks to the high capacity LiPo battery (2s/1200mAh), the E511 quad has an impressive of up to 17 min of flying time. The advertised 200 meters control range is also pretty nice for its market segment.

  1. Can you give me some dimensions of the drone? I’d like to find spare propellers compatible with my odd one I bought from a market in Hong Kong. The propellers measure 14 cm from tip to tip, and the inner diameter of the shaft is 0.5 cm.

  2. Maybe you should elaborate the sentence “The Eachine E511 has almost none of the DJI’s features.” which I totally believe considering the price difference!
