The Eachina H1 aka Mini Ninja Hybrid aka ‘the Skywalker’ quad-copter is quite a hit among the budget section of the audience. One thing that probably could’ve made the quad-copter better is headless mode.
If you don’t know what headless mode is, let me tell you: a quad-copter, like any vehicle, has a front and rear, but almost always it is quite tough to make out the front from the rear. Now, this makes orientation quite a big deal, especially among newbies. Headless mode allows one to control the quad-copter without having to worry about orientation; the ‘front’ is always the front, and so on.
Coming back to the Eachine H1, it appears as though the company is now shipping the quad-copter locked in headless mode. Now that isn’t something that will go well with the veterans, but they seem to make only a minority anyway.
Quad-copter focused YouTube channel Frequent Flier RC posted a video about the ‘upgraded’ Eachine H1, where the quad-copter displays its headless-only characteristics. To think of it, a headless mode quad-copter for less than US$20 sounds like a good deal, doesn’t it?
