Identical to the Novice-II, the Eachine Novice-III is also ready to fly out of the box. It comes packed with EV800 FPV goggles and ER8 transmitter. Thanks to the versatile F4 flight controller it can be configured with multiple flight modes. Newbies will be able to practice on angle and horizon modes.
The KV5500 motors are paired with 2-leaf propellers and driven by a 4-in-1 10A speed controller. The Eachine Novice-III can be powered by 2s and 3s batteries. According to the advertised specs, with a 3s/450mAh you can have up to 10 minutes flight time.
