Eachine E52 Foldable Arms Camera Quadcopter, WIFi FPV + Altitude Hold


Eachine has come with another WiFi FPV quad with foldable arms. Using WiFi FPV and Altitude Hold. What does make it stand out from the other WiFi FPV flyers, is that it looks pretty nice:

(Since they've promised to send me a sample, this thread will be turned into a review, as soon as it arrives)


Update 4 june 2017:

Change of plans, since there are already a couple of review threads, expanding this thread to a full review seems not really needed. So instead I'll give a quick summary, and include the links to the other threads for more info. Btw, there are also reviews posted further on in this thread, I will try to link to these messages directly as well.


The box of the X52 looks rather flashy:




Inside we find the transmitter, 2 manuals, spare props, a prop removal tool, a USB charger, and the quad:




Now you see the arms and motors:




And now you don't...




The quad looks really flashy, and the battery snaps into place easily, on the bottom side. The altitude hold works quite well, but even in high rates, there isn't much max tilt and yaw speed available. Might have been better to allow for faster flying in high rates, so the low rates can be used for selfie flying, and the high rates for free flight.

I just ordered one; this is the way like it should have been with the E50/Elfie: with a proper transmitter!

Great looking Quad with greats specs.
Its bit confusing about GPS capabilities, on pictures there is mention of GPS assisted RTH function?
Also on Strong Motor titled pictures is module shoving GPS?

If there is really GPS module inside why doesn't it has GPS assisted position hold?
In my reviews of E50S and E55 selfie quads most problems I had are keeping the quad steady, without drifting away, in outdoor conditions as there is seldom weather when no wind is present. So selfie quad with position hold in this price range would be very attractive.


If there is a quota I am interested in reviewing/testing RTF Version.

Probably the best looking toy grade selfie quad i have seen so far anyway!.

Always think these things should have the camera in the rear of the quad though. It would be easier (considering the market it's aimed at) for the beginner pilot to operate without having to fly 'nose in' all the time.

Just sayin.

Of course there's no GPS in this quad. C'mon in a $35 quad, really?

Well, I am not price/market expert, but its only matter of time and volumes of sales. How much, not so far ago, was price of FC with barometer for alt. hold function or mobile phone with GPS?
Now days toy grade quads have alt. hold mode which works great.
Just saying that desc. is not clear enough.

I just ordered 1, look for a review soon.

The e50 needed a controller and "stuck motor protection" like the E33.
I do not like the type of battery in the E52, I think this will be the first mod that I do.
They say a wide angle camera, but it looks like a pin-hold.
