Eachine E58 drone review – Awesome tiny Mavic clone

Eachine E58 - Cheap DJi Mavic clone for beginners

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

The Eachine E58 is actually a very capable drone for the price you're paying. The camera is not half bad, it's foldable and flies pretty good.
