NEWS: Eachine Aurora 68 (48g, F3 omni+BF OSD, 10A BLheli_S/Dshot600, 1102/11500Kv)

Want a shrinked (and hope fixed) version of the Eachine Aurora 90 ?. Here is the 68mm version: http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-Aurora-68-68mm-Mini-5_8G-600TVL-FPV-Racing-Drone-BNF-with-F3-OSD-48CH-25mW-VTX-p-1132680.html. The new model keeps exactly the same electronic ingredients except for motors, now we have smaller and lighter 1102/11500Kv but still 2S compatible. The other elements remain the same: eachine minicube with F3 omni+betaflightOSD, 4-in-1 10A BLHeli_S Dshot600 ESC and for the last layer one of these three choices of receiver: FrSky D8,Spektrum DSM2/X and FlySky AFHDS-2A. If of the new version they solved the three known problems of the EA90: Prop hitting the aluminium standoff, some drifts in angle mode and some sudden up-tilt after hard turns, the new EA68 can be a fantastic indoors and indoors flyer. Probably a direct comptitor of the new Emax Babyhawk. Announced flight time is poor … only 3min despite a 400mAh LiPo.. Strange. I guess the final total weight will be around 70g. Let’s cross finger and wait & see. I will ask to review one 🙂

    Hi,
    Looking forward to see your test!

    Nothing much to do with the Babyhawk, 85mm and 1105 5000kv motors though…

    Great all those tiny nano Racers, but flight time is an issue… I’m going to try higher C batteries and XT30 plug… at least to try to get rid of the buzzer after 2 minutes.

    I’ve done one of my best fly yesterday with a GT2 Crusader 200mm yesterday… 12 minutes!!! And only 6 minutes with the GT2 150!!! We should get better efficiency with smaller quads, but I don’t know how…
