While, usually, the numbers in a drone’s model name refer to the diagonal size in millimeters measuring the distance from rotor to rotor (wheelbase), in case of the Eachine Tyro99 means exactly its price – $99.
The Eachine Tyro 99 DIY drone comes in parts and needs to be assembled by yourself. The KIT includes the frame, flight controller, ESC, motors, and FPV system. To get it in the air you will additionally need a radio receiver, transmitter and flight battery.
Based on a versatile F4 flight controller, the Eachine Tyro can be configured with multiple flight modes. While newbies can opt for Angle mode, expert pilots can have fun with Air mode. The flight controller supports BetaFlight \ Inva racing firmware.
The powerful 2150KV brushless motors are paired with Racerstar 5038 2-leaf propellers and 30A 4-in-1 ESC.

Yes, it is surprising the so low price. The, Eachine Tyro99 is probably the BEST FPV drone under $US100
Best FPV kit under $100. Eachine did a great job with the Tyro99. It is easy to build and configure. You can fly in just 3 hours after you received the package. I test it with many type of LiPOs, for best results I suggest to power the Eachine Tyro99 with 4s 1300-1500mAh batteries.
