Eachine EX1 Brushless Double GPS WIFI FPV With 1080P HD Camera

*** On hold , there are some issues with the cameras 5ghz system and the GPS that need resolving***

The EX1 is the latest quadcopter released by prolific manufacturer Eachine , a clone of the JJRC X3 and sporting looks similar to those previously seen in the Hubsan brand of quads the EX1 is a budget friendly entry into the world of aerial photography, the back bone of the quad is of course its flight controller which utilizes GPS and software to provide a safety net of "return to home" features ensuring for the most part your devices safe return therefore allowing you to spend more time in flight concentrating on the more important issues , like seagull chasing..

As things progress more features are added to our devices allowing systems like "headless mode" to provide a safety net in case orientation is lost but further enhancements were rather slow in being incorporated. As technology advances and prices are lowered more manufacturers are starting to incorporate realtime feedback to their products in the form of basic battery monitoring and GPS receivers , these are combined to provide safety features such as LV-RTH ( Low Voltage Return to Home ) and position hold , in more advanced models features like Orbit and waypoints are also added.
The latest "feature" to be included to the line up is the inclusion of high resolution cameras coupled with a video transmitter in the form of a 5Ghz WiFi module, whilst device dependent these negate the need for a dedicated set of goggles for FPV viewing allowing the user instead to view realtime flight footage via their mobile phone or tablet , however , as i said this use of this feature relies on you having a device capable of receiving WiFi on the 5Ghz band and more precisely certain channels of that band.

Previously the majority of Aerial photography based Quadcopters were rather large when compared to their more sporty racing cousins, generally centered around a 7-8 inch propeller with a camera attached to the belly and long legs to avoid damaging the sometimes expensive camera AP (aerial photography) quads were in basic terms just BIG ! There were of course some smaller models such as the Cheerson CX-23or the Hubsan 501* ( i am sure there are others ) but pickings were relatively slim if you wanted something that didnt require a suitcase.

So , with all that said, the Eachine Ex-1 is a slightly smaller brushless AIO GPS/AP entry level quad, swinging 6 inch self tightening props the EX-1 has a removable camera unit that when attached sits within the main body of the quad removing the need for long landing legs. Powered by a 2cell battery which is rechargeable via a standard micro usb cable the EX-1 offers an affordable wallet friendly step into the world of aerial photography.

So , what do you get ?

A nice box the packaging really is quite nice
