Discussion has been busy!

That, of course, is a good thing where we hobbyists are concerned.

A couple of other posters here on the blogs have highlighted the new Eachine E010 micro quad and man, is this thing ever fun.

They were selling for all of $10.99, at least when they were in stock. Not only do they fly surprisingly well, especially indoors, but there are already threads right here on RCGroups on how to turn an E010 into a budget Tiny Whoop!

Here's one:

According to the ordering page, the price has gone up to a still amazing $15.99. My suggestion: Get one while you can. They're really that good, although outdoor conditions should be at or near dead calm. The E010 won't lose its composure in breezy conditions, but as fast as it is, it doesn't quite have the power or torque to overcome a breeze, at least in stock configuration. In calm conditions, it's as much fun to fly as anything in this ridiculously low price range has a right to be.

Here am I flying the E010 both indoors and out. The model was provided by RCGroups user "BG Well" at Banggood for review and critique.

This is someone who went full Tiny Whoop on his own Eachine E010, also from He's been kind enough to list the parts and their vendors:

Upgrade your E010 - night gate flying fun? (18 min 20 sec)

I must admit...that's a really tempting upgrade.
