Eachine Aurora 100 Flight Test, Unboxing and ReviewEachine Aurora 100 Flight Test, Unboxing and Review

Brushless quadcopters are becoming more affordable and the Aurora 100 from Eachine is the latest in micro-class racing drones.

As an own brand product of BangGood, the Eachine Aurora 100 is the latest in a line of new brushless micro quadcopters.

However, unlike earlier models the Aurora 100 is fully kitted with inbuilt receiver, 4-in-1 flight controller and D-Shot speed controllers, it even includes a lost model alarm, and all within a compact and fairly light-weight form-factor.

The positives…

❍ High specification, D-Shot, OSD, buzzer, LED strip..
❍ Cheap, at only £100/$135 including receiver.
❍ Tuned PIDS from the factory, flies very solidly.
❍ Powerful, incredible punch from a micro-quad.
❍ Compact form-factor, aerodynamic design.

The negatives…

❍ Main carbon frame is too thin BUT there is now a new thicker 2mm or 2.5mm frame! See here: https://goo.gl/NIievM
❍ Ships with BF 1.3.0 which causes FOD, upgrade to 3.1.7.
❍ VTX antenna is highly vulnerable, dipole would be better.
❍ Camera FOV is slightly too wide.
