The manufacturer of this nano drone is the Chinese company Shantou Nihui Model Technology Co., Ltd. On the market since 2013. The main field of activity is the production of radio-controlled toys. The company’s products are in demand in the markets of Europe, America and Asia. Consumer recognition received for exemplary quality at an affordable price. In USA, Shantou Nihui lit up thanks to two UAV models – these are NIHUI TOYS U807 and NIHUI NH-010 5.8G FPV quadcopters. More on the latter later.

About the product
NIHUI NH-010 5.8G FPV is one of the cheapest Tinywhoop FPV RTF clones available today. The quad is built on a 65mm ABS frame. It is based on the simplest electronics, excluding any settings through the configurator. No acro mode, only 6-axis stabilized flight, as on all budget UAVs.
The strength of this model is a good FPV camera, which works in conjunction with a 48-channel analog VTX at a frequency of 5.8GHz. As a result of this upgrade, the NH-010 has become a significant competitor for such popular models as the JJRC H36 and Eachine E010, which, unlike the NIHUI NH-010, do not have FPV cameras, but are perfectly adapted for them.
The quadcopter reaches the consumer in high-quality bright packaging. In the center there is a small transparent window through which the quad itself is partially visible.
It is worth noting that all drone components: frame, motors, rotors, board, control equipment, are 99% replica of components above the above competitors. It differs, except that the NH-010 main board slightly modified for the FPV camera, which received the marking – JR-NH010RM (JR-NH010R is the marking of the JJRC H36 and Eachine E010 boards).

Drone weight (with battery):
The NH-010 5.8G received collector motors (6 × 15mm) that are classic for this drone niche. Similar ones are installed on the JJRC H36 and Eachine E010.
It should be attributed to the pluses that each motor is connected to the board via a 1.25mm microJST connector, this fact greatly facilitates the change of motors without the use of a soldering iron.
The NH-010 is equipped with a proven 600TVL miniature AIO FPV camera with a built-in 25mW VTX. Supports PAL color system. Field of view (FOV) – 130°, which is optimal for flying at home.
Changing channels (1-8) and frequency band (AF) is carried out by pressing the button through the left hole on the protective dome of the camera. A short press changes channels (8 × green LEDs), a long press changes frequencies (6 × blue LEDs). Everything is simple and intuitive.
It is worth noting that the weight of the camera assembly with a protective dome is 3.9 grams in total!
The drone is powered by a single-cell lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 200mAh. There is no information about the discharge rate on the battery, but most likely it is 30C, similar to the batteries of the JJRC H36 and Eachine E010 drones. With active piloting, it provides an average flight time of 3 minutes 30 seconds. Battery charging time 25-30 minutes.
Power supply of NIHUI NH-010 fits H36 and E010 drones without problems.
The NH-010 5.8G comes with a similar control equipment that is equipped with the H36 and E010 drones, built on the XN297L RF chip. The control is carried out at a frequency of 2.4GHz. In a interference-free zone, it provides a removal distance of no more than 60-70 meters. Power is supplied by two AA batteries (sold separately).
Good news, the hardware supports using Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) batteries as a power source. And it is also worth noting the compatibility of the radio protocol with DevationTX.
At the same time, the big disadvantage of the NIHUI NH-010 5.8G FPV is the unfortunate location of the 2.4GHz antenna. It is laid from below parallel to the main board, this fact will adversely affect the not without that small distance of removal. Therefore, it is highly recommended to bring it outside. Thankfully it’s not that hard to do.
The NIHUI NH-010 5.8G FPV is currently available for purchase on the Amazon marketplace for $36.

NIHUI NH-010 5.8G FPV is one of the cheapest and best quality TinyWoop RTF clones on the market. Stable and optimized for FPV beginners, no soldering required. All you need to fly is a charged battery and any analog output source for the image broadcast from the drone’s camera, preferably FPV goggles or a helmet. Regardless of age, if you are just getting started with UAVs, then this option will be the most practical, because with the NH-010 5.8G FPV you can combine both piloting training and FPV flight adaptation into one learning experience, in absolute safety for yourself and those around you.
