It seems as we’re really getting closer to the limit to how much compact a consumer foldable drone can get. The Eachine E57 we’re going to check out today is indeed a good example of that, with a maximum thickness of 0.95cm when folded; let’s have a closer look!
As you may have already learned from reading above, the Eachine E57 is an ultra-thin and light drone (at only 36 grams) with a really smart folding mechanism that drastically reduces its size at the press of a button.
Eachine’s E57 is equipped with an HD camera which will allow you to snap photos and record 720p videos while in the air. You can also have a live view of the camera using the built-in WiFi module and stream it directly to your smartphone or other WiFi-enabled device. The drone then features Altitude Hold mode to keep it stable during flight, One Key Return and Headless mode.
The Eachine E57 is powered by a 3.7V 250mAh battery for about 5 to 6 minutes of flight time.
