Eachine RTF Mini Wing Dragon Beginners RTF RC Glider Flight Test Review

0 187



This four channel powered 540mm glider is a good beginners learn to fly plane for indoor (gym) or outdoor low wind park flying. At only 80 grams, this does not require registration inmost countries. Find it here http://bit.ly/WingDragon

Pros
– Four channel learn-to-fly glider with control of throttle, ailerons, rudder, and elevators.
– Slow flying, lightweight plane. Should be good and safe for beginner’s.
– Gyro stabilization system with three selectable modes of Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert flier.
– One key return will automatically fly the aircraft the opposite direction that it was pointed as set on the ground.
– 1020 brushed motor provides plenty of power for this plane. As such, it should be able to easily lift added weight, such as an add-on FPV camera.
– Powered by common generic 3.7V 380mah battery. I got about 7 minutes flight time of powered flight with this battery on a very cold day.
– Controller has telemetry alert, providing beep warning on low battery.
– Control range of up to 200 meters.

Cons
– Brushed motor. It will eventually need replaced.
– Telemetry battery warning came on way too early in both flights. I found that it could be corrected by landing and rebinding the aircraft to the controller.
– Carbon tail boom was difficult to insert into the tail surface. It required lightly sanding of the boom until it fit.
– Somewhat tail heavy out of the box. But adding an AIO FPV camera up front might correct the problem. This plane should also easily lift such a camera due to its light weight.
