We’ve seen affordable quadcopters, and we’ve seen some really inexpensive ones. However, the all new Eachine H8 Mini probably beats them all with a price tag that’s lower than any other!
(Update: The Eachine H8 Mini review is up, check it out!)
The Eachine H8 Mini costs a mere $14 shipped, and has a very cool Cheerson CX-20 sort of a look to it. In fact, if you don’t have anything to compare to, the Eachine H8 Mini does look much larger than it actually is. I was myself fooled into believing it was much bigger than its actual size before looking at another picture.
What I like most about the this quadcopter drone is the design… a lot of nano drones have come and gone, but most invariably derived their design from the CX-20, while this ones a breath of fresh air. That’s not it; the H8 Mini also features headless mode and RTH (return to home), features usually seen on more expensive fliers.

On the specs segment, the H8 Mini measures 11*11*2.8cm (thanks to the long-ish prop guards), and comes with a 150mAh battery. The battery takes about 45 minutes to charge, and returns 5-7 minutes of flight time according to this listing. It seems to have a controller very similar to the one found on the Cheerson CX-10. What gives the H8 Mini an advantage over the CX-10 is that the H8 Mini has a removable battery while the CX-10 doesn’t.

In all, the Eachine H8 Mini looks like a very interesting, entry-level nano quadcopter drone to me. I’ll try getting my hands on one to review for you guys; meanwhile, you can order one for $14 shipped from Banggood!
