Eachine Racer 250 FPV Drone: $145 alternative to the Walkera Runner 250

The Walkera Runner 250 is a great entry-level racing quadcopter drone, but the new Eachine Racer 250 appears to offer pretty much the same value at a starting price of just $145!

Banggood have listed the new Eachine Racer 250 FPV (external link) quadcopter drone, which is essentially an alternative to the very popular Walkera Runner 250 FPV quad (which also got a GPS update recently). The Racer 250 is priced at a nominal $145 (BNF), so it is quite a tempting proposition for budding FPV enthusiasts.

EXPLAINED: BNF, RTF and ARF drones

The Eachine Racer 250 comes with everything besides a transmitter and a receiver, so there isn’t much you need to invest in the aircraft besides the $145, especially if you already own a Tx/Rx kit.

Very much like the Runner 250, this Eachine racing quad comes with white headlights on the front, a mushroom antenna and a 5.8GHz FPV video transmitter with a built in HD camera (1000TVL).

The packing appears to be plain white, which is cool. Take a look at the video of the Racer 250 below.

It does look like a decent entry-level racing quadcopter drone for beginners, and I’m going to try getting my hands on it for a review here. You can buy one for yourself here.
