I just got this quad a few days ago just because it was cheap...it has a wifi camera for fpv for smartphones and stuff but the signal and lag is terrible which I knew it would be...I just figured it would be a cheap line of sight quad to mess around with in the house and outsides sometimes...it's surprisingly stable and flies very well...the rates are very low but really u can't expect much for 40 dollars...u definitely need extra batteries if u purchase one of these...bring it takes over an hour to charge a battery that lasts 5-7 mins...all in all though it's fun to play around with and practice on...but the fpv part of it is basically just useless...it's basically only good if u want to take pictures and the pictures aren't good quality...ill probably strap my möbius to it...if any of u plan on purchasing it don't do it for the cheap fpv experience which I didn't either...but it's fun to fly around in the house on a day u can't take your nicer quads out

This is a very very short video of my first FPV flight that ends in a crash...since I'm just starting it's hard for me to take my eyes off the quad...but I guess I did alright for about one minute..then a nice crash.

Just messing around for a minute...if you notice me being so pale it's because I have a lot of Irish in me. This is the Eachine Falcon 250...with spongebob in the background.

Here's a short video of me flying around a park...I know the flying sucks because I'm very new with flying anything at all...this is my first one and I happened to buy a pretty powerful one instead of starting with something small...it's the Eachine Falcon 250...I'm flying line of sight and I haven't gotten it down yet with orientation of the quad while I'm flying it...I'm very bad at flying it while it's coming towards me where left is right and right is left...if you have any tips on easy ways to learn that please feel free...I also pull up a lot and make it stop violently because sometimes I can't really tell how far from me it is and don't want to hit anything...so yeah I know I still suck with these things lol...and by the way everyone there that day I am friends with so they were fine with me flying it around them. The music is Murphy's Ridge from the movie Lone Survivor...if you like true war movies I recommend it.

Well my Eachine Falcon 250 came with 3s 1500mah lipos and recently I figured I'd try some other batteries...I ordered some 3s 2200mah batteries and I just got them...I actually went from about 7 min flights to around 15 mins with these new batteries...I hope its not hurting my quad...I'm not sure if its exceeding the take-off weight or not because I haven't weighed it at all...hopefully not because I'm getting great results with the bigger batteries...with the new batteries though you do have to kind of adjust how you fly and adjust to the weight...the quad will perform differently with weight changes obviously...it takes more throttle to take off...really just all the controls are a little different because of the weight added to it..but its easy to get used to...I also have read that 4s batteries work great with the Falcon if you want it to go faster...but right now I'm still learning so I'm not looking to make this thing go 80 mph...for whatever reason I bought a racer as my first ever quad or really the first ever RC type thing I've ever messed with...I hear its not for beginners but I really disagree...I think it takes patience, research, and some learning...and you'll be fine...I'm really enjoying it...and I'm probably the biggest beginner on this site...if I am going over the take-off weight though what really can damage the quad other than putting too much stress on the motors?...I'm not sure and I could google it and probably will...but I've gotten the best advice on here so if you read this let me know about flying over-weight. Thanks for reading.
