Banggood’s in-house quadcopter drone brand Eachine has to be credited with one thing if not anything else — for making super cheap quadcopters possible.
The model names can be a little confusing, which is something the company could work upon. Nonetheless, let’s take a look at the new Eachine H8S 3D Mini.
Right off the bat, the Eachine H8S 3D Mini reminds me of one of my favourite budget quadcopters of this year — the Floureon H101. Eachine quadcopters are usually rebrands of JJRC ones, so it is a surprise that the H8S 3D Mini doesn’t correspond to a JJRC quadcopter.
The H8S 3D Mini is priced at a mere $17.99 shipped worldwide, which does look like quite an attractive price. The mention of ‘3D’ in the model name means that the H8S 3D Mini can fly inverted in addition to upright flights.
A 15C, 220mAh battery powers the Eachine H8S 3D Mini, which should be good for flights of around 6 minutes. As is the case with all other Eachine quadcopters, this one too comes with Headless Mode and Return to Home features.
