Eachine Falcon 180



The Eachine Falcon 180 Profile Review

The Eachine Falcon 180 has short flight-time. This will end up being not my favorite of all the Eachine quads I have flown. The Falcon 180 is not for beginner. The Falcon 180 is not tuned out of the box and must be configured first. The transmitter is not set up, and need to take it apart The Falcon 180 to access the USB port.




Summary:

My recommendation is to stay away from this The Falcon 180 if you are a beginner. If you have flying experience and know how to configure radio-transmitter to RTF then do it. This is not for beginners, and I give this a 50% ok.


 

Pros:
– Configurable flight controller comes in three flavors CC3D, Naze32, and SPR F3.
– Price! ($110 for the PnF Naze 32 version)
– In a crash, the ESC’s stop to prevent damage.
– It’s a speed demon on 4s
– 40 channel FPV (Boscam Bands A, B, E, F, R)
– Flys great once tuned
– New bare bones option is perfect for more experienced flyers
– Bright LED turning indicator.
– Option of 3 different flight controllers
– Easily tiltable 700 TVL 120 degree FPV camera.
– Tilted motor mounts (easily removable if you don’t like them)
– Tiltable camera mount
– Vibration isolation mount for both FPV camera and video camera
– Removable tilted motor base provides steady forward motion. Can be removed if desired.

Cons:

  1. No instructions!
  2. USB port inaccessible on RTF Seriously Pro version.
  3. Not tuned well out of the box.
  4. Radio not set up properly on RTF version.
  5. Eachine Falcon 180 is not turn-key ready-to-fly.
  6. Must dismantle to gain access to the flight control USB port.
  7. None of the transmitter switches are configured to any flight control mode.
  8. Stock PID’s must be configured too, and not pilot operational.
  9. In this review pilot needed help via R/C – Groups.
  10. Recommend reading this thread listed below this line: Eachine Falcon 180 Mini FPV Racer From Eachine, Quanum Outlaw 180 Killer?
  11. Several unconnected wires in the wire bundle. Don’t worry, they’re meant to be disconnected ?
  12. LED strip and FPV antenna sticking out the back, and can detach in a crash or high pitch landing.
  13. Landing gear is weak and detaches easily via landings and breaks during hard landings.
