Hmm, I was expecting more, this is about the same as older Eachine quads, lots of polishing needed to make it (hopefully) shine. Maybe RTF should be changed to RTT, "Ready To Tune"

Guess that means that samples have been sent out... I agree that without custom pids they are not RTF

I was more along the lines of this thing isn't flyable for the beginner, than this thing isn't polished. Having less-than-perfect PIDs is not a big deal, but not supporting Angle mode right out-of-the-box, will be a big issue for beginners.

Since this thing comes with an F3 FC, and BLHeli_S ESCs, it deserves BetaFlight firmware like Eachine Wizard X220.

Realacc GX210 has many signs showing that it was borned from the same mother as the other Eachine products. I have a feeling that Realacc is another product line of BG, just like Eachine.

Take note of the board orientation


It's rotated 90 degrees. The correct setting is to set GYRO and ACCEL to CW 0. Setting yaw to 90 degrees works but it won't be optimal.

How could they assembled the FC at the wrong orientation! This is very, very bad!
did you flash it with a new firmware? if so, are you sure they didn't have the FC orientation changed originally?

Yes, you are right - I flashed it with new firmware and I neglected the original setting. I watched my video showing the original default config and it's there.

I'll amend my post.

Hey, Fyre. Any chance of a video overview/review for this one? I'm interested in how it looks closer up and inside.

Yes, I am working on it. I hope to finish it by Sunday!!!

I haven't flown it but from what I see, I think it's not bad, quite OK, and has small flaws.

All right, right on! What kind of flaws are we talking about here, if you don't mind spoiling the grand reveal?

Here are some points that I'd include in my video:

1. FPV camera uptilt is limited by its wire/plug blocked by the FC which is very close behind it.

2. While it has a SPF R3 FC and so it supports battery voltage status, the wires are not physically connected to the FC VBAT pads.

3. Comes with a PWM RX! What the ?!

4. Heatshrink for the ESCs have not been "shrunk".

5. VTX antenna connector is not straight (slightly slanted).

6. FPV camera is also not horizontally level.

7. It has an older version of CF and has bad default CF values (e.g. no Angle mode, OneShot not enabled).


I'll have to fly it tomorrow to know how it performs.

Realacc GX210 SP Racing F3 RTF - Review Part 1 (15 min 42 sec)


Even before flashing to BetaFlight, I prefer this more than Eachine Wizard X220.

Hello,

The arf version look nice, with a good camera and vtx is can be really great for the price.. But Banggood said that we don't need solder to put the camera and vtx, strange no ?

Thank you.

Yes, I'm rather surprised how well it flew, even before flashing to BetaFlight. I just tried BetaFlight with it and I'm utterly impressed! I thought it couldn't get any better, but I was wrong.

The built-in DVR on my Eachine LCD5802D monitor.

Yes, they are right. Have you seen my video review of the GX210 RTF? You can see that the camera and VTX components are plug-and-play. I unplugged them and took them out for some shots. Of course, your camera and VTX must have the correct plugs, otherwise they wouldn't fit, and you need to solder the correct plugs.
