Eachine Wizard X220 FPV Racer Drone Flight Test Review
This inexpensive RTF racer is just plain fun to fly. Extremely agile and maneuverable, it may be a bit too aggressive in stock settings for entry level FPV fliers. But more experienced pilots will have a blast with this. Buy it here https://goo.gl/xhrSU9 or here on Amazon http://amzn.to/2pkO0d7
– Reasonably priced for a ready to fly FPV racer.
– Actual Flysky transmitter (not rebranded). Settings menu is not locked.
– 700TVL FPV camera.
– 48 Channel 200 mW FPV transmitter
– Naze 32 6DOF Rev 6 flight controller
– Comes with four complete sets of triblade propellers.
– 20A ESC’s with 2300 KV motors.
– OK but not impressive punch with a 3S battery. But it makes up for that in maneuverability and just plain fun flying.
– Aggressive and agile stock settings, even in angle mode. New racer pilots may get discouraged flying this as overly aggressive. But they can tone it down if desired in Cleanflight.
– Receiver loosely strapped into the quadcopter. Its antennas are also just stuffed inside the quadcopter’s body.
– FPV transmitter installed with shrink wrap still in place. Can’t change its channels unless you partially disassemble the quadcopter to remove the shrink wrap over the channel switches.
– Controller mode switch positions did not match user manual settings. Switch C Position 1 and 3 were set to Acro, and Position 2 was set to Angle modes. But it’s easy to reconfigure this in Cleanflight to match the manual’s settings of 1 Andgle, 2 Horizon, and 3 Acro.
