Well I understand ... Eachine is so active ... probably too much because, at the end there is not outstanding Eachine racer actually. All previous model need at minimum a lot of tuning and some can be send directly to trash (EA180 V1 for example)

I swear, with 2205 motors and decent antennas this one could have been Eachine's flagship racer.

They need to stop making these things to a certain price point and just get one right. Or at least provide the option for a premium version (F3, 2206, etc...)

BG Jim or BG Well, if you're listening! We don't need more decent models, we need one great one! Bundle it with the DR V2 and a FS-i6 S for < $300.00 and it'll be my go to RTF kit recommendation.

Smart to fit 3 blades, as it looks at least as heavy as the Falcon 210.
What is the benefit of having the 3 blades over the 2 blades? Is there a benefit or are they mainly for different use cases?
Thanks

3 blades means more thrust for the same prop diameter. Also tend to be more smooth. The drawback is the motors draw more current as three blades have more drag than two.

Looks very promising... swap the motors to 2205 and it'll probably be the best Eachine yet

So we'll soon know if this one's got some "magic" to show.

Darn, got a delayed e-mail on mine.

EDIT: Nevermind, shipped! Kinda excited about this one since I saw Drones Visual Review

My only real concern now is the antenna, since all of mine are RP-SMA. What kind do I need for this? Because I'm not using that dipole!
