Dear readers, we’ve prepared the first episode of our new series, through which we will be introducing new products from the copters world, freshly put on sale or presale at Chinese partners’ stores. Via this series, you’ll get basic information, pictures and links to vendors’ websites, where you’ll have a chance to take a more detailed look at the new products offered and, eventually, (pre)order them.
Because autumn is fully surrounding us, and winter is coming, we’ve decided to introduce you a micro quadcopter, even though it’s available to be purchased for quite some time now. You can fly these machines in your living room, without necessarily damaging family heritage, like a valuable porcelain item or a deer, your parents show to everybody as the most precious wedding gift.
There’s not only one, but four drones we would like to show you, as they are being sold under four different brands.
EACHINE E010, FURIBEE F36, JJRC H36, NIHUI NH – 010
We like them not only for being suitable for total beginners, because of their simple construction, durable propeller covers, wide range of inexpensive spare parts and accessories, but the main advantage is, that if you get bored of its current form, there are certain innovations you can do at home. There’s LEDs are both in the back and in the front, therefore it’s possible to fly in worse light conditions.
Unfortunately, I am not able to determine if all of them are just rebranded originals or if some of them are clones (personally, I suspect one of them of plagiarism).
