Eachine have expanded their already impressive lineup of budget and racer quadcopter drones with the all new Eachine Assassin 180 FPV racer. As the name suggests, the quadcopter is meant to be flown in FPV (first person view) and measures 180mm from arm to arm diagonally.
The Assassin 180 seems to have been built around the very successful Eachine Racer 250. However, the Assassin 180 is going to be shipped with a completely RTF kit (ready to fly), which includes an Eachine i6 controller (Flysky i6 rebrand) and an HD goggle set, the Eachine VR-007.
More importantly, this is perhaps the first 180-sized quadcopter drone on the market to have on-board GPS!
To be specific, here’s what the $349 kit will include:
- the Eachine Assassin 180 quadcopter drone
- 11.1V 1100mAh battery
- Battery charging dock and adapter
- Eachine VR-007 FPV goggles
- Eachine i6 controller (Flysky i6)
- 2 x 7.4v 800mAh batteries
- 4 x 2400mAh Ni-MH cells
- Carrying case
- User’s manual

As for the full specs of the Eachine Assassin 180 FPV, it has a Naze32 flight controller, 1806-2300KV motors, 6A 3S ESCs, and a 520TVL camera for FPV.
The quadcopter also boasts on-board OSD, which means that you can get a live feed (on the FPV goggles) of the essential info about the quadcopter such as its battery level, etc. while flying.
Eachine have shown in the past that they’re capable of redefining the quadcopter drone market. First with the entry-level, super affordable Eachine H8 Mini quadcopter (and its variants) and then with the Eachine Racer 250 (and its variants).
It’ll be interesting to see how the hobby circuit responds to the Assassin 180… meanwhile, let us know what you think about this quadcopter in the comments section below.
