$120 COMPLETE RTF indoor micro drone with FPV goggles
The indoor rig finally came in and it is fun! The goggles are acceptable, they are nowhere near as polished as the Fat Shark goggles I have had before and that is not saying much. However, when you consider the price, they really are pretty damn good. The diversity works great and the video signal is rock solid while flying around my house. The E010C is under powered but if you don't expect to fly super fast you can keep it from bogging down. With some practice, I should be able to get pretty good at this. The following video is from my second flight. You can see why the E010 is a good design for indoor flying - you can bounce right off the walls and keep going.
Alright, so this system is pretty cool for $120. However, there is one issue with the goggles. When I turned on the DVR the video became jerky. I don't really care much about the DVR feature except to show you guys so that is not a big deal. Maybe there is a way to fix this but if you really want to use the included DVR, I would avoid these.
Should you buy this inexpensive setup? Maybe..
This is a pretty neat novelty item and the goggles and the nano video transmitter and camera can be used on other systems. If you already have a ground station or fat shark goggles, the E010C is a decent enough way to fly. It is by no means high performance and lacks power but it is still fun. I have flown it twice so far.
Alright, fast forward several days. I love this setup and it is excellent for indoor flying. The E010C still bogs down when you put it into the fast mode and really try to fly around but in the slow mode (the default setting when you turn it on) it works pretty well. I have been flying this thing non-stop for days. It can bounce off walls, dogs, kids, lights and keep flying mostly. With this setup, the controller loses signal before the video so you do need to keep it within a room or two. This thing is nerd heaven.
