Eachine H8C is a 2016 model that has received recognition from beginners for its handling, indestructibility and low cost, indicative of this UAV niche. And also for the close resemblance to the equally popular JJRC H8C quadcopter, the difference between which is in the size and method of mounting the 2MP camera.

In the arsenal of the quadrocopter is a 2MP built-in camera. Allows you to take photos and videos in a maximum resolution of 1280 × 720p at 15 fps. The picture quality is below average. We attribute the narrow camera viewing angle, only 45 degrees, to significant disadvantages.
In stock, the quadcopter is equipped with collector-type motors with torque transmission through the gear. In calm weather, the potential of the motors is quite enough. We attribute the open type of gearbox to the minuses, since the ingress of sand and dust will lead to its increased wear.
Bright illumination allows you to fly in the dark, looks impressive.
The H8C is equipped with classic 4-channel equipment operating in the 2.4GHz band. According to the specification, it provides a removal distance of up to 100 meters. In practice, in a metropolis, this distance is halved. Power is supplied from 4 × AA, purchased separately.
The XN297 chip installed on the board makes Eachine H8C compatible with DeviationTX control equipment via the BanYan protocol.
Cross-shaped buttons are located in the central part of the remote control. If the left button is held up, then video recording is turned on (turned off). If you press briefly, the drone will take a photo.
The Eachine H8C is a lot of fun to fly and the control sensitivity is well tuned. If you are not a beginner, we recommend flying without the protection of propellers and landing legs, this approach will noticeably add dynamics to the drone.
The Eachine H8C quadrocopter is sold on various Internet trading platforms at an average price of $25.

An excellent quadcopter, suitable as the first UAV for practicing primary piloting skills. Equipped with a strong protection of the main rotors, it can withstand numerous crashes. There are no complaints about flight qualities, speed modes allow you to set suitable costs. Only the camera was disappointing with its shooting quality (especially in photo mode) and a very narrow viewing angle.
