Most of the large drones today are pretty expensive and can be scary to drive to control. But you have another market for people who just want to test it out a little bit without fear of damage something super expensive. Eachine’s little guy is called E012 Mini.
It comes with 2.4G, 4CH, 6 Axis headless mode, LED Light, Quadcopter RTF, you get a protection ring against the propellers that is rugged so it won’t hurt people. In size this one is 65mm * 65mm! It also has a cool feature where it can do a 360 degree roll-over. Instead of just the normal WSAD flying experience. You need to be pretty high above ground to do this properly so you don’t crash.
In E012 Mini you also get a mode where the quadcopter can come back to you. You get a 2.4G back remote control to control the tiny quadcopter. It weight is 15g with battery and 10g without battery. The battery is 3.7V and 200mAh. Charging time is 40 minutes and fly time only 5 minutes. Flying distance is 30 meters.
You also get 3 levels of flight speed to have some variation on the flying experience. Of course the major negative here is that it only last 5 minutes of fly time. That is super little and 40 mins is pretty long charge time for that. Should be at least 15 minutes of fly time. But it’s hard to do with these tiny quadcopters with tiny batteries. What do you think about the E012 Mini?
Eachine has released some interesting products lately like I did a blog post on their new affordable FPV goggles. Which is good for a beginner just starting out in the FPV world. You can’t really complain too much on this quadcopter when it’s pretty cheap. I won’t buy it but I’m certain someone else will!

In the future we will be able to experience any reality inside of our virtual reality headsets. Especially when AI technology will be better and when we will reach singularity. That may even happen before 2030 so stay tuned for that!

Be careful if it’s your first time controlling a drone. It can be a bit complicated to learn how to control it the first time using it. You don’t want to crash your first drone!
