Eachine E012 Ducted Quadcopter Unboxing, Setup & Flight Test Review

When the weather outside is gloomy, you can keep flying with the arrival of new nano-scale flying toys such as the new Eachine E012, a nano-sized ducted and brushed quad designed for indoor use.

You can buy the Eachine E012 for only $15/£12 here! Buying via our link helps us to keep reviewing!

As the industry evolves, it becomes harder to understand how drone and quadcopter manufacturers are still able to scrape a profit on products priced as low as the new Eachine E012. Retailing at a staggeringly cheap $15/£12, this quadcopter flies perfectly out of the box, includes transmitter, battery, charger and even spare props.

The E012 has a ducted design which improves thrust performance and consequently provides a 5 minute flight time per charge, surprisingly adequate considering the minuscule 200mAh 1s battery, the smallest LiPo battery that we have ever seen.

Within the box you receive a mini-transmitter, charger, spare props, battery and a fairly detailed instruction manual, all packaged nicely and in a gift-friendly form.
