The Blade Inductrix is an extremely popular quadcopter drone, not just because it’s easy to fly indoors, but also because it’s the official Tiny Whoop quadcopter. That said, there’s a couple other alternatives prepping to take on the Inductrix, in the Nihui NH-010 and the Eachine E010.
You’re probably aware of both these brands. While Nihui deal pretty much in toy-grade quadcopters, Eachine have a wider range of offerings and dish out a brushless hobby-grade every now and then.
Cutting to the chase, both, the Nihui NH-010 and the Eachine E010 should be on the market for well under $20 for the RTF kit — including shipment. This is less than 1/3rd the asking price of the $69.99 Blade Inductrix.
The quadcopter itself measures 8cm x 8cm, and has a diagonal blade distance of 11.3cm. It comes with a 150mAh battery that promises a flight time of around 5 minutes… without any FPV gear mounted on top of it.
Both, the Nihui NH-010 and the Eachine E010 seem to be under mass production right now, with stocks due to arrive in a couple of weeks (at the time of writing this article, ETA mid-August). We’ll keep you posted on these.
