$60 Eachine QX65 Ready-To-Fly FPV Bundle Review, Unboxing And Flight Test

The Eachine QX65 is the best indoor FPV set that we have reviewed since starting DroningON. For under £65/$70 you get a ready-to-fly quad with 6 batteries, charging hub and loads of accessories, and its great fun! Enjoy our full editorial and video review.

Many months ago, we reviewed and loved the Eachine QX90C, a micro brushed quad which was ideal for indoor flying, but the 90-class quads are just a little too big for rapid indoor speed racing.

With a basic but fully featured specification (besides not having a buzzer), this micro-whoop style FPV quad incorporates OSD, high quality camera and a great VTX.

But best of all, the entire package including six batteries is priced at less than $60/£55, or can be bought via the ‘Basic’ package for only £40/$45.
