Got home today to see the Ideafly Grasshoper F210 was here!I did a quick unboxing and inspection to be sure all was there ,charged it up ,did a test of the controls then put the props on and out I went!!Yeah I have been looking forward to checking out this quadcopter and I have done no tuning to anything in this video ,this is right out of the box.It had a couple glitches but seemed to settle down as I flew it around,can use some tuning here and there but I think this quadcopter has a bunch of potential.I will have a more detailed review soon to come I was just very excited to get right out and fly this wild grasshopper,can't wait to to a couple adjustments and get out for another flight and also a FPV flight

Getting out for a fpv flight trying out the super light all in one Eachine EF-01 5.8ghz camera on a small brushed motor quadcopter,the Gool RC T5G.The T5G has it's own 5.8ghz transmitter,I was looking to see a couple things her,one was to compare the EF-01 to the stock fpv setup on the T5 and also just seeing how well the EF-01 does in general on a somewhat small brushed motor quadcopter.I found both systems performed well,the Eachine EF-01 is better overall as I expected,as it is designed and specs are better than that of the stock setup on the T5.I liked having both cameras on board,the EF-01 was used for my fpv flying while the stock camera of the T5 did a fine job recording video Thumbs up for both

Had a blast this evening flying a couple of my brushed motor quadcopters with fpv setups around the little park out back of my place.Brushless fpv is a thrill no doubt but you need space to really open them up but brushed quads with a little aio fpv camera are great when you have limited space .Most of the time I take my brushless racers elsewhere to let em rip but when I can't get there and my little park is occupied the brushed motor quads are great for fpv .I really like the Eachine all in one EF-01 camera ,it works very well for my needs ,a tab of velcro and a little battery ,stick it on top of most of my brushed motor quads and it is awesome.took a bunch of video ,hope it is all there haha,going through it later,had a few cameras recording at once so video coming soon.

I set up my Hubsan H502E with the new all in one Eachine EF-01 5.8ghz camera.This should be a great setup,the 502E does not have fpv just a regular camera for video and picture.Adding the super light EF-01 has now added fpv ability to the 502E Desire.Full test flight soon to come!
