The Eachine E33C review, unboxing, inspection and flight test.The Eachine E33C review, unboxing, inspection and flight test.

The Eachine E33C is a decent ittle budget quad for those wanting to progress their flying skills beyond flying assisted altitude hold drones, we were sent one direct from Eachine for review.

Eachine approached DroningON and invited us to review one of their latest budget quadcopters. We have for some time been praising Eachine drones and so we are proud to be working with them directly.

The E33C is cheap and cheerful, it flies very well although it is not necessarily a beginners drone due to the lack of altitude hold, but for drone pilots that have been flying with autonomy and wish to learn manual throttle and altitude-control, it is an ideal start.

The positives…

❍ Cheap, nicely made and produced.

❍ Fairly long flight time, 6-8 minutes with stock battery.

The negatives…

❍ Prop spinners tend to fall off.
❍ No altitude hold, requires manual throttle control.
❍ No calibration for gyros, needs trimming manually.
❍ Avoid cutting throttle fully, it’ll drop the quad.
❍ Fail-safe time is far too long at 22 seconds.
