Eachine Falcon 210 Pro FPV Racer Flight Test Review

This punchy RTF full size quadcopter may be one of the better bargains in FPV racers. It is a relatively good flier. Buy RTF here and ARF here Be careful when ordering the RTF version as the current stock appears to be limited to Mode 1 only (hopefully they’ll be restocking shortly). Also ARF version does not come with a battery, transmitter, or receiver (provide your own). The RTF version does require a few simple modifications to help prepare it for its first flight. But for the price of this racer, those modifications are a minor consideration.

Pros
– 5 inch tri-blade propellers, 20A ESC’s, and 2300KV motors give this racer plenty of punch!
– RTF version includes Eachine i6 transmitter.
– 700TVL, 40 channel FPV transmitter.
– I got the SPR F3 version. Others had reported problems with the stock PIDs, but really I thought they were fine.
– Three flight control board versions including Naze32, CC3D, and SPR F3.
– Comes with Betaflight 3.0.1
– Overall, this racer is relatively inexpensive for what you’re getting.

Cons
– Does require some preparation before its first flight. This includes
* Zip tying the antennas away from the props.
* Also tying the power plug and cables away from the props.
* Applying a little velcro or sticky tape to keep the battery from sliding.
* Setting transmitter aux channels to switches instead of rotating knobs
* Setting mode switch settings in Betaflight to enable angle and horizon modes. But this was
the only change that I made in Betaflight.
– OSD is no longer available in 210 Pro version. Can’t tell remaining battery power. Also no buzzer included. As such, my flight ended with a crash ;-)
