Eachine e013 – perfect indoor FPV drone for beginners

Eachine E013 - THE beginner drone for FPV

Battery Life

4 min







The E013 is a drone somewhere in between 2 worlds.

It can also be seen as a beginner quadcopter and a starter FPV drone at the same time.

The best part is that you can get the entire package, that also comes with a transmitter and goggles for quite cheap.

This is going to allow you to have a complete FPV experience or if you want, simply fly it like a standard drone, without goggles.


What are the advantages of FPV Goggles?

The goggles this drone can come in the package with are the Eachine VR006. They are super lightweight and quite compact for what price you'll get them for.

You can find these sold separately also.

These don't come with DVR, so you'll have to mount that yourself if you really want it.

These goggles come with a 3″ LCD display and a resolution of 500 by 300 pixels.

The goggles are unfortunately too small for them to work with eyesight goggles (in my experience).

No Image lag

Drones in this price range tend to usually have a camera that transmits images though wifi on the phone. That means you won't be able to control the drone in real time, as the lag is going to be too significant.

5.8ghz FPV is what professionals use in racing competitions (of course at different frequencies).

This let's you fly the drone in real time even only by watching the camera feed through a monitor or FPV goggles in this case.

You can still record if you have DVR

Eachine E013 doesn't have DVR in the goggles it comes with, which means you won't be able to record what you see on a micro SD card.

But you can always get other GOggles with DVR and use them with the same drone.

You can use the Goggles for other drone upgrades

If you plan or think there might be some drone upgrades coming in the future, goggles like these will work with any drone and you won't need to buy another set for quite a long time.

Eachine E013 price and specs

This drone is probably not the absolute best choice for total beginners. I would probably get something much cheaper to crash at first like an Eachine E010 that's quite sturdy and similar to this one, but much cheaper, although it doesn't come with FPV.

In terms of specs, it rocks brushed motors and has a pretty short battery life of about 3-4 minutes in my experience, which is not a lot, but common for this size of quadcopter.

However, it's quite simple to counteract this with just getting a ton of batteries (they're cheap).

The drone comes with ducted propellers that have greater efficiency and thrust, but of course are heavier. However, there's a good advantage that it protects the propellers from hitting walls, so it's quite a forgiving to fly drone.

This quadcopter doesn't fit a lot with the others, as it's on a special niche of its own. However if you have the money you can always buy something else, so take a look:

The camera for this drone is a 1000 TVL one and I must admit I got along pretty well with flying it.

It comes with a 120° field of view, which is perfect for FPV and you can change between 40 channels by the press of the button on top.

The image is transmitted at 25mw and that's quite a good signal in my experience, good enough to pass though 2 thick house walls.


The transmitter is the right size and comes with metal sticks, that feel quite well in the hand so they don't slip in case of something.

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.
