Coming soon: Eachine E520S & E520 Mavic clones

Eachine E520S & E520 drones

Following the epic success of the E58 Emotion drone, Eachine is planning to release to new drones on the same foldable Mavic alike design. While the Eachine E520 has only some basic features, the Eachine E520S GPS comes with satellite positioning system and intelligent flight modes. Both versions are available with 720p, 1080p or 4K camera. You have also possibility to chose between 2.4G or 5G WiFi standards.

In order to allow convenient transportation, arms and propellers are foldable. With folded arms the aircraft measures only 11 x 15 x 7.5 cm. Eachine include with the E520 series one set of removable blade protectors which are useful for newbie pilots.

While both variants are powered by the same type of 2s/1200 mAh battery, the Eachine E520S has about 2 less flight time compared to its GPS-less brother.
