Eachine E58: another Mavic clone

Following the success of Visuo, Eachine also announced their own Mavic Pro clone. The E58 follows similar foldable design as the much expensive DJI drone. Of course, the specifications are much poorer and comes with less reliable brushed motors instead of brush-less ones.

Thanks to the barometric air-pressure sensor, the Eachine E58 quadcopter is capable to autonomously maintain its flight altitude at the desired level. Headless mode is another feature that makes flight more easy.

Eachine advertises the E58 drone in two variants. One with 0.3Mp camera and one with HD 720P camera. Both versions are powered by the same type of 500 mAh Li-Po battery.

Additional to the included remote controller, the Eachine E58 can be also controlled through smartphone APP. Kids will love to control the aircraft movements through their phone Gyro sensor.

  1. Hi,

    I’ve just purchased a Drone x Pro off eBay (new) and charged the battery but nothing happens when I push the button on the top any ideas gratefully received?

    Thanks,

    • At first sight, the Drone X Pro is almost identical with the Eachine E58. Why did you opted for that model? it is much expensive and probably no aftermarket support….
      Firstly, you will need to measure the voltage of the battery, if it shows 4.2 volt it is ok. if its under 3.7 the battery is dead and you have luck, you will need a new one. If the battery is OK, you will need to open the drone and check for faulty wires. check first the power button wires. if you din’t find anything subspecies, probably the main board is dead 🙁

      But! best would be to contact the seller and request a refund or warranty replacement.

      good luck!

  2. Got one recently and am impressed with the package. Loved the included 2 extra batteries. Noticed that it has a microSD card slot but nothing in the included manual mentions it or how to use it. Is it used automatically to record video/photos? Does one need to format the card via the app? Whats the recommended specs for the card?
    The materials used for the highly vulnerable parts like the props and hub are way too brittle. Had to replace 2 hubs and 3 prop blades after just a couple of days of gentle use.
    Grand kids love it nonetheless.

    • HI Philip, any small capacity (2 – 8GB) micro SD card should be fine. You can try to format it fat32 (also NTFS). And check which one is working. As i remember from my E58 review, it is able to record to micro SD only triggered through APP, the buttons on the RC have no effect 🙁

  3. Looks amazing, moves like a professional drone, takes solid pictures. And I’ve never had a problem with range. It does what it says plus looks like a mavic. Great price too. I really wish I could be a drone tester for these guys. Can’t wait to see an updated version maybe carbon fiber. So so cool!

  4. Just receive it. The aircraft is smaller than expected. Transmitter quality is very toyish. Anyway, For the price it’s worth it! My suggestion for best performance is to calibrate the Eachine E58 before flying.
    Camera is not good for any professional aerial filming, but OK to play around.
    Couple of spare batteries highly recommended!
