Eachine E511S GPS drone: Features & specs

Eachine E511S GPS drone

The Eachine E511S is definitely a very promising drone. It isn’t terribly expensive ($111), has GPS system and up to 16 minutes flying time. In addition, you have 3 camera options: 5G WiFi 5MP, 720P or 1080P. Furthermore, the angle of the camera can be remotely adjusted.

At first sight, the E511S is an upgraded version of the popular Eachine E58. It has not just more attractive design, but also some cool new features.

According to the advertised specs, the 2s/1200mAh LiPo battery allows up to 16 minutes flying time. With installed propeller protectors, the fun time is probably less.

  1. Hi Pack Man , this Eachine E511S not have brushless motors, but 1020 coreless motors, is brushed motors (with electric colector) and without core ( without middle nucleo magnetic stell).

  2. Hi,
    Please, can you tell if this drone (E511S), with the 1080P operates at 2.4G frequency, with FPV?

    It’s making me confusion because it has the 5G WiFi 1080P HD option that makes me believe it is needed a 5G smartphone to operate it…is this correct?
    (The EX2H, for instance, loses the FPV capability if without the C6000 1080P 5G camera. )

    My smartphone is 2,4GHz, so can I buy this E511S with 1080P and it will work?
    Many thanks!

    • The Eachine E511S transmitter works on 2.4G and the FPV over 5G WiFi. It requires 5G phone to display the real-time video feed.

      • I purchased the E511S 5G 1080p without realizing it won’t work on my mobile
        My question is if I replace the camera or the receiver will it work on my mobile then?

        • sorry, I don’t know the exact inside architecture of the E511S. But, IMHO the best option is to replace your phone. Most of the actual phones are compatible with 5G WiFi

  3. if this thing has a decent video quality, i think this can be a hit. just making sure it can sustain at least 30fps. the size kills it.
