The Eachine E010 doesn’t have a lot of features like some more expensive drones would have.

However, I still consider it to be the perfect drone for anyone to start learning how to fly drones.

Mainly because it’s cheap, it flies well, it’s durable and small enough to test drive around the house.

What to look for in a Beginner drone

Durability

The Eachine E010 has its entire body made to protect the propellers so you’re free to crash it around the house without damaging them. Even if you do, there’s the option to buy any spare parts, including batteries.

And trust me, as a beginner YOU WILL crash it!

Battery Life

This is important to have to an extend, for obvious reasons. But you should consider that the smaller the drone, usually the less battery life it has.

However, even if the 4 to 5 minutes that the Eachine can fly might seem low, just keep in mind you can always choose to get a ton more spare batteries as they’re quite cheap.

How it flies

I usually prefer drones that are basic when it comes to teaching newbies how to fly.

I would preffer no altitude hold, no optical sensors for stabilization and so on.

This is going to make things a bit harder as you’ll have to constantly adjust the drone trajectory.

However, this is what will make you into a good pilot. Especially if you plan to fly FPV in the future

Eachine E010 Price and specs

The price is what makes this drone such a big recommendation.

If you’re planning to have a drone teach you the beginnings, you better be prepared to crash it and break it.

And as durable as it is, it’s still breakable and you won’t want to cry over if it happens.

You can find the drone both on amazon or even cheaper on sites like BangGood.

Transmitter and controls

The controller for this tiny drone is… you guessed it -Tiny!

This might be a downside for people with big hands though. However it’s quite perfect for children and I actually like flying it like this, especially since it’s easier to carry around as a package.

It comes with the following main button options:

  •  trimming buttons (if the drone tends to fly in a certain direction)
  • a button for taking flips (yes that’s a thing)
  •  two speed rates button ( if you want to fly slower at first and then sport mode after you get used to it)

The battery is 150mAh 3.7v and lasts for not so long in the air. However, as mentioned earlier you can always change it after the first flying if you have spare ones.

Overall, the drone is still relevant in 2019 too. 

There’s many drones that are great for beginners, but if your main target is to learn how to fly, then don’t hesitate and get this little bastard!
