Halloa people,

on first glance quite an interesting quadcopter this Eachine Wizard X220 (with F3 flight controller). Is this Eachine's first real serious racing / acro quad? Or have they (again) screwed things up with a weird design or badly chosen materials / config? At least the price is right!

Link to the ARF version: Eachine Wizard X220 ARF

And the RTF version: Eachine Wizard X220 RTF


Sooooo let's have a look-see if this really is a nice quad!



Specifications:
Wheelbase: 220mm
Arms: 4mm Carbon Fiber
Weight: 364g (without lipo)
Weight: 535g (with the RTF lipo)
Motors: 2205 2300kV
Props: 5045-3
ESC's: 20A Blheli-S (2-4S)
Camera: 700tvl CMOS
VTX: 200mW 48 channel 5.8Ghz
Flight controller: F3 (no OSD)
All kinds of planes, multi rotors, heli's, cars & boats..

This really is the first Eachine quad that looked good to me.. The FPV camera isn't top, but all-in-all a very nice package this

good to know. FED50H is my best flying buddy..he has the Racer 250 and it fly's well. But they are making advances literally daily it seems. I'm trying to get my FPV setup put together first. Need a ground monitor with DVR so i can record stuff. I'm frustrated daily with my Fatshark Predator V2 goggles...with only 7 channel and limited transmitting capability..i may have to sell that setup first and get a new set of goggles that will allow a more wide range of setups. Then i will be looking into this size of quad. Like the speed and size and fun factor for sure.

I'm digging this size too... I'm going to play around with the settings using open pilot and attempt some flips and rolls with my racer 250...if I destroy it, I may be in the market for a bird like this sooner

The thing is with those, if you break anything, you're out of the game because you don't know how to fix it.
Spend the extra money and build it yourself, you'll learn a lot and in case of a crash you know exactly what needs fixing.
Build it, fly it, crash it, build another.

Building your own quad(s) is good and you'll probably end up with better components (if you know what you're doing )
After a few builds though, it's mostly the same process again.. This could be nice as a crash-copter..
