The Eachine H8 Mini, also known as the world’s cheapest quadcopter at $14 shipped internationally (review), is quite a lot of fun. Not only is it (super) fast and agile, but it also has features such as headless mode and one key return.
Headless mode is a function on quadcopters that allows you to fly the aircraft around with much greater ease, and something usually beginners will like to have on their first and second quadcopters.

Before the start of 2015, only very expensive models featured headless mode, but entry-level quadcopters such as the Eachine H8 Mini are already doing it, and headless mode has become a bit of a standard for any quadcopter already.
Unfortunately, inexpensive quadcopters haven’t yet reached a level where they come with exhaustive user manuals; that might be the case if you read Chinese, but as many of you would agree, that definitely doesn’t hold true for the English (rather, Chinglish) manuals that ship with quadcopters.
So if you own an Eachine H8 Mini and have yet to figure out how to enable headless mode, we got you covered. Here is how to enable headless mode on the Eachine H8 Mini!

As simple as that!
Once enabled, you can start taking your H8 Mini for headless flights without worrying about orientation anymore. Which is kind of needed on the H8 Mini (unless you’re a quadcopter pro) because of the super high yaw rates.
If you don’t own an H8 Mini yet, you can get one here.
