Review of Eachine E010S PRO - 65mm 5.8G 40CH 800TVL Camera F3 Built-in OSD High Hold Mode RC Drone Quadcopter


This quad remained my on the Jaws. Too bad it cant go underwater



This cool design aldought brings great benefit for beginners because all electronic parts are well protected in canopy it makes life a little bit complicated (we are spoiled) to initially setup the quad because bind button for RX, CH/TX button and USB port are all hidden under canopy.
Good thing is that after initial setup there's no need to do that again because quad has OSD so most important BetaFlight settings are tunable via OSD.

I can reccomend this quad already to beginers because its great protection of el. components and antennas.




VTX antenna is hidden in shark tail ant RX antenna is laid horizontal "out of the box". When I opened the shark to adjust my CH/TX I put the RX antenna to upright. I believe it should be better that way.

I did a short hover and LOS test after setting in BF my modes and it flies great.

Review of JJRC H62 - Best flying selfie drone jet - Target Tracking and optical flow positioning foldable drone

Upgraded model of H61, H62 with code name SPLENDOR is here:



H62 flies great. Yaw response is beautiful, which is not the case on most selfie drones.



Position hold via implemented optical sensor works perfectly. I had to give zero stick inputs in hover, check OSD view from the captured phone screen - post #3.

Review of Dragonfly Hurricane 2207 KV2500 Brushless Motor for FPV Racer from FPVmodel

Doesn't this motor look great?




Build quality of these motors from FPVMODEL look amazing. Especially when taken into consideration their price.
Quality/price ratio on this motor is huge.

Hope their performance in flight quality will be equal to their looks&build quality.
A great feature is also plastic ring along the bottom part of the windings that will prevent bolt, which is too long, to push against windings and damage the motor. What a great and simple idea.





Air gap is nonexistent and on the bottom side of the magnets here are blobs of glue used to balance the bell. Also, another important aspect is that vertical play is nonexistent also.
Bearings sound nice and smooth.

Review of Eachine Lizard105S FPV Racing Drone BNF Omnibus F4SD 28A Blheli_S ESC 720P DVR 5.8g 25/200mW VTX 4S (beta-reviewers sample)



This is beta-reviewers sample of Lizard105S, mean looking 86g machine from Eachine running 4S. Frame with vertical arms and side support reinforcement looks really complicated but also aggressive.
I thought Lizard95 with its 66g on 3S was crazy fast and more than enough, but, fortunately, enthusiasts from Eachine taught differently and designed more feature packed product Lizard105S, the successor of 95. I hope it will outperform 95 one of which my review is HERE.


Lizard105S looks beautiful. I love aggressive appearance of this quad and its color scheme.
Bind to my transmitter and quick in-house hoover maiden flight went OK. Test flight to follow, so stay tuned.

Review of Eachine Beecore Upgrade V2.0 Brushed F3+OSD Flight Control Board For Inductrix Tiny Whoop E010 E010S

My Beecore V2.0 FC just came. The first bind to Taranis and flight test went well.
Its almost plug n play. I connected motors and soldered power lead for an initial test that went great (I only had to adjust ch order and arming switch, all other is default).
Later I soldered FPV cam&VTX combo which I had laying around from my Lizard95 as I changed original one for SpeedBee SEC.




Eachine Beecore V2.0 Brushed Flight Control Board is a new upgraded version which integrated Betaflight OSD and MPU6000 at SPI bus. The new version also integrated 2.4G receiver with 3 versions to choose(FRSKY/FLYSKY/DSMX). It's the best flight controller for indoor brushed quadcopter (BeeDuctrix / Tiny Whoop / Inductrix setups/Eachine E010 E010C E010S ect.).
