This quadcopter is one of the most popular toy level drones I've ever seen. And it's mainly because of its strong resemblance to the Mavic Pro from DJI.

However, don't think less about it, as it's quite a capable flyer, espcially for this price. Not only that, but it comes with a pretty allright camera and up to 3 batteries in the package.

What to look for in a toy camera drone

Flight stability

Although The Eachine E58 doesn't have optical flow camera underneath like some of the newer drones, I actually liked it better this way.

It offers the oportunity to learn how to adjust a drone direction for wind.

Otherwise, in low wind situations, it's a a pretty stable flier. Don't expect GPS for this price though.

Battery Life

The 7 minutes of flight time this drone can give you are quite standard and pretty much enough for capturing a few shots and having fun flying.

The interesting thing is that it can come with up to 3 batteries in the package, depending on what you buy.

Eachine E58 Price and specs

There are two main places where you can get the drone from:

  • amazon
  • banggood

On amazon it's usually more expensive, so I would put it in the “under $100” category.

However, if you get it from banggood, the price is cheaper, going even under $50 in certain times.

The package you get is quite complete, containing everything from prop guards to spare props and the charger.

As you can see, the resemblance to the Mavic Pro is pretty big. My mavic has an orange skin on it, but they both are the same color originally.

Camera quality

This quadcopter has a pretty good camera for the price. It's quite standard for drones of this size to have 720p cameras.

I liked the color balance and the framerate on it. There are other toy grade drones that have a terrible frame rate and you can't properly see movement.

Transmitter

Eachine E58

The transmitter is quite similar in design to the mavic one, however it's made only from plastic and has fake antennas for some reason.

It works as intended though. The buttons are pretty well shown on the controller.

I feel like the phone holder is quite solid and I'm not afraid to keep a more expensive phone in there.

Some of the standard transmitter functions are:

  • motor stop
  • headless mod
  • return home (not very effective as it doesn't have GPS)
  • start and stop video and photo buttons
  • on and off button

More than just another drone copy

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:

how-to-make-money-with-drones

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:

  1.  
  • 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.
