Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter has all the ticks in the box.
This article I will review the Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter indoor/outdoor FPV. The Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter is based on the popular tiny whoop FPV platform. The Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter is built as a true FPV platform. The Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter has been much sought-after Mini FPV Quadcopter and it is inexpensive.
Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter has a cleanflight/betaflight FC, decent integrated FPV camera and transmitter, and a bigger battery for longer flight times.

A brief bit of history
Not long ago, if you wanted a tiny micro indoor FPV quadcopter the goto platform was the tiny whoop from blade. It was a powerful and tiny toy indoor quadcopter. However you still needed to upgrade the flight controller and add your own FPV camera and equipment which meant that you got a rather terrible flight time of just a few minutes due to the added weight of the FPV gear.
Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter then made a copy of the tiny whoop called the E010, which was essentially the same thing but considerably cheaper. The E010 still had the same problem of you needing to upgrade the FC and add your FPV gear. This brings us to today where Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter have recently just released their QX70, built as a dedicated indoor FPV quadcopter!
- Integrated RGB LED bar – that you can configure via cleanflight/betaflight
- More powerful 8520 motors compared to E010
- Tiny F3 flight controller compatible with cleanflight/betaflight
- Option of Flysky, FRsky, Spectrum versions (integrated into flight controller) (Flysky receiver is not compatible with EU LBT firmware, as it only works with D8 mode)
- Decent tiny 520TVL integrated camera and 25mW video transmitter
- 650mAh battery – to give longer flight times, but it also adds extra weight
- Convenient USB battery charger
- Rather muted flight performance due to big battery – can be remedied by using better 3 blade props or a 450-500mAh battery instead
- Propellers can sometimes catch on motor shrouding if you push props down too hard
- Small propellers are inefficient (but hard to break)
- Motors can sometimes slip on a bad crash, causing the quad to become abit unstable, easy to fix as you just need to push them back down again.
Why you should get it
The Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter is a great tiny size indoor FPV quadcopter, it ticks all the boxes in terms of specs as it includes a good FPV camera, with decent flight controller. It is great for flying indoors thanks to the prop guards which literally let you bounce off the walls. For the price it is very hard to beat.
The only drawback is the slightly unresponsive flight characteristics so you not going to be doing any flips and this quadcopter will struggle outdoors if its too windy. However I have found that by using some 3 blade propellers instead will allow you to hover at around 40% thrust. In addition if you use a smaller battery you get much more responsive flight at the cost of a shorter flight duration.
How does it compare to tiny whoop (Blade Inductrix FPV)
Blade also released that many people where converting their tiny whoops for FPV so they released the inductrix FPV.
Overall the reception of this quad has been positive with good flight characteristics (better than QX70 in my opinion) but at the cost of very short flight times of 2 – 2:30 minutes on average.
But since the QX70 is considerably cheaper and compatible with more R/C gear I feel its still a better choice. And if you need more performance you should upgrade to some 3 blade propellers
LED Light Bar
One of the coolest additional features of the Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter is the RGB LED light bar at the back. Not only can you configure it to respond to the aircraft motion, but you can also set it to be a unique colour which is great when flying with others, or when you want to have an indoor FPV race as each quadcopter can have its own color.

Integrated FPV camera and VTX
Compared to the other QX versions, the camera itself is very similar. A 520TVL fpv camera with a 40CH 25mW transmitter. However the mounting of this camera is much better.
It is on a vibration isolated mount with some sticky double sided foam to make for a secure and vibration fee camera mount. The camera and video transmitter are two separate PCB boards stacked onto one another so it is very compact.
Changing channels is very easy through the use of the pushbuton on the FPV transmitter, just dont press the pushbutton on the camera which switches the camera between PAL and NTSC.
Eachine Turbine QX70 – Unboxing, review, test flight, and some tips.
Flight control base on F3 evo flight controller, supports Cleanflight and Betaflight, provide Acro/Rate mode, Angle mode, Air mode and more. The Coreless motor is plug type, simple and convenient to use. QX70 it is armed with an omnipotent receiver which is compatible with various protocols. The user only need to be equipped with a remote control and a receiver to experience the indoor FPV flight.

The QX70 quadcopter is a improved Indutrix for FPV Racing , flying furiously with adequate agility.It is based on SP racing F3 evo flight controller supports Cleanflight and Betaflight, provide Acro/Rate mode, Angle mode, Air mode and more. More importantly, it is armed with an omnipotent receiver which is compatible with various protocols. Come with LED lights, but need assembly.
Tiny F3 flight controller
At the heart of the Eachine Mini FPV QX70 Quadcopter is an all new micro F3 brushed flight controller which has a built in receiver. There are three versions depending on what receiver you want, a flysky, frsky or spektrum compatible version.
Overall this is a decent micro flight controller for brushed quadcopters compatible with both cleanflight and betaflight so you cant go wrong here. Also its definitely one of the smaller boards available on the market especially when you consider it has a built in R/C receiver.

In this review I compare the Horizon Hobby Inductrix FPV to the Eachine
Turbine QX70 micro quadcopter to see which one is worth the money.
Also I show you Eachine Turbine QX70 Micro FPV Racing Quadcopter is available in RTF, and BNF versions.
Based on F3 Evo Brushed Flight controller, QX70 offers a solid .
Here I compare the flight performance of the QX70 QX90 and Tiny Whoop with some similar circuits around my house.
Check out my review of the QX70 on my . EDIT: after flying this off and on for about a month,
I wouldn’t recommend this quad as an RTF. You will need to do some tweaking to get it flying nicely. At some .
When you buy the quadcopter you should definitely consider getting some better propellers as the stock 4 blade props are utterly useless and inefficient.
If you upgrade to these hubsan 3 blade props, you will get oodles more power and it lets you hover at around 40% throttle, vs about 90% with the stock 4 blade props with very little effect on flight time.
Another useful addon is a small 2g 3D printed antenna protector which stops the video transmitter antenna getting bent when you land upside down! But dont add this before you upgrade the props. You can download the file from thingiverse.
So that is it, the QX70 is a great little quadcopter for the price once you upgrade the stock propellers that are rather useless. If you have any tips that made your QX70 better let us know in the comments below!
