As one of the best selling drones of 2016 and 2017, the DJI Mavic Pro is obviously a target for manufacturers to clone, Eachine has just launched their E58 drone and it is visually a perfect mini-replica.
Whilst this mini-drone does not come close to the extensive functionality of the bigger and more expensive DJI Mavic Pro, visually it is a very good little drone and manufactured to a fairly high standard too.
We can not condone the copying of design in this way but it has become the norm in China where both Eachine and DJI operate, the benefit being that a flow of budget drones are available globally.
