Eachine Pioneer 350 GPS Camera Drone Flight Test Review
This inexpensive Ardupilot based GPS camera drone seems to be a reincarnation of the popular Cheerson CX-20. Buy it here http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-Pioneer-E350-With-GPS-915MHz-Radio-Telemetry-Kit-2_4G-8CH-RC-Quadcopter-RTF-p-1075923.html?p=RB0922217402201307U3
– Reasonably priced for a large GPS camera drone.
– Relatively rapid GPS lock on.
– Includes GPS position hold, and return to home/landing.
– Setup and operation, along with operating switches all are extremely similar to the popular Cheerson CX-20. The body shape seems to be the primary difference.
– Compatable with mission planner software.
– Optional telemetry version available.
– Optional follow me GPS watch is planned for the near future.
– Fast and maneuverable flier in manual and altitude hold mode.
– Does not come with stabilized gimbal, or camera mounting bracket.
– Not very stable in the wind. Flight controller seems to lag a bit in control response to sudden changes in wind gusts.
– Throttle response somewhat sluggish in GPS mode.
– Requires FAA registration.
