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


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!

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:


1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

types of drones

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.


How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of DronesGator.com and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.
