Eachine E33W Quadcopter for Novice Pilots

Last month, Eachine announced two new entry-level drones: the E33 and another with folding arms. As a beginner, I always start with small and affordable drones.

The Eachine E33 comes in two versions: one without a camera and one with a WiFi FPV camera. For an extra $12, you can record your flight and watch live video on your smartphone.

One of the risks of buying RC toys from unknown brands is that something might break and you’ll have to fix it yourself. Over time, Eachine has proven its excellent after-sales service by providing spare parts.

Overall, the Eachine E33 quadcopter is a great option for beginners. Although my readers usually expect detailed reviews, this time I was in a hurry because there were two more products from Eachine waiting to be tested.The Eachine E33W drone comes in a compact package that includes the drone itself, remote control, phone mount, four landing gears, one set of spare propellers, USB charger, screwdriver, set of screws, and user manual. In order to control the drone in first-person view (FPV) mode, you will need to use your own smartphone or tablet.

First impressions:

The drone measures approximately 26 x 26 x 11 centimeters and weighs 104 grams when fully loaded, so you probably don’t need to register it with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) before picking it up. It comes with attached propellers and is ready for flying. The camera, landing gears, and propellers are optional accessories. Even with the camera installed, there is still enough clearance for flying without an SUV.

The design of the cabin is similar to that of the JJRC X2, and suddenly, a 450mAh Li-Po battery pops out.

To help with orientation, the Eachine E33W has blue LED lights on the front and red LED lights on the back, and the props also have different color schemes: white on the front and black on the back.Suitable for both adults and children;

6-axis gyro stabilization;

Multiple flight speeds;

Multiple control modes (physical remote control, virtual joystick and gyroscope);

Headless mode;

Go home function (not with GPS!);

Engine lock protection;

WiFi FPV image transmission;

Approximately 8-10 minutes of flight time.

3 Transmitters/Remote controls

The gamepad-style remote control is completely black with no LCD display. In addition to the usual controls, there are 8 more buttons on the front panel. The left stick allows you to switch between flight modes, while the right stick activates the 3D flip feature (360-degree flip).

The remote control has a “mode 2” setting – the left joystick sets the height and direction of the drone, while the right joystick controls speed and direction. To attach your smartphone to the controller, use the supplied phone mount.Although the specifications for the E33W drone don’t mention anything about app management, I did notice that it can be controlled after installing the appropriate app (WiFi UFO, Mental Remote Control, Virtual Contacts, and Gyroscope mode, which involves tilting your smartphone). In my opinion, however, the most accurate way to control the drone’s movement is through transmission.

The 4 camera and WiFi FPV features are also worth noting. The 0.3MP camera has a 3-pin connector that makes it easy to remove, and the angle of the lens has been slightly rotated. The WiFi camera weighs approximately 8 grams and does not require a micro SD card. We were able to take photos and videos from the camera and save them in the internal memory of our smartphone (in the “drone” folder). The image quality from the E33W’s camera is decent for a $40 drone, but it’s not a professional aerial photography platform.Two minutes of video recording (640 x 480 pixels at 15 frames per second), approximately 5MB. Yes, the resolution is even lower than 720p.

After checking, I found a third version of this model with a 2MP camera, called “Eachine E33C”.

5. Flight test – Control range and flight stability

At slow speeds, the E33W handles sluggishly and is easily turned over by the slightest breeze. Flying at “high” speeds makes the aircraft more agile and wind resistant.

WiFi FPV support is active, so it can’t be used for full-on FPV flights (with VR headset). The range of FPV is also shorter than the actual control distance.

BG says under ideal conditions, the Eachine E33W can fly for up to 10 minutes on land, but of course, conditions aren’t ideal. I get an average of 5-6 minutes per flight. Removing the camera and prop guard will definitely give you an extra 1-2 minutes.

Summary

The Eachine E33W is not the best ATV on the market, but it does what it promises for its price: decent acoustic flight time and a basic WiFi FPV camera. The only downside is the lack of Alt-Hold, which is a feature found on most modern drone toys.

Shipment and User Reviews

Those interested in this training drone can find it here for $37.99 with free shipping. If you’re not interested in FPV flights, the basic version (E30) is available for only $25.99.
