Eachine Elfie E50 Unboxing, Flight Test and Review

Eachine Elfie E50 Review – $40 Drone With Camera And Altitude Hold

A year ago, quadcopters with basic autonomy such as altitude hold would cost far beyond $100, but such products are finally beginning to drop in price, the Elfie E50 from Eachine is one such example.

BangGood provided us with this product for review and considering the low price ($40/£35), our expectations were not high. This ‘WiFi’ drone does not utilize a traditional transmitter for control, instead it emits a WiFi SSID to which you connect to it via your mobile phone.

It does not incorporate a GPS either and therefore there is no position hold capability which can be quite a drama in anything but light wind. Fortunately the drone does manage altitude by itself and therefore the bewildering task of throttle-control (for new pilots) is managed for you.

As a first quadcopter/drone or as a gift to someone else (wife/husband/child/teenager) this is an ideal product. It is not for high-resolution and stunning photography, but it is absolutely for fun and laughs.
