Eachine FPV beginner Kit – Small Pepper

Are you thinking about getting into FPV flying, but not really sure if this is something for you? In this video, I will take a closer look at the properly the cheapest FPV beginner kit on the market. Getting into FPV can be pretty expensive where you have to invest in a quad, a remote and some goggles.

 

 

What if you just wanted to see if this was something for you, is there a cheaper solution? Yes, the eachine Small Pepper FPV kit from Banggood. This is a complete budget FPV kit with everything you need for around 60 USD to get started fpv racing.

The small pepper is a tiny whoop style quad where the props are protected by ducts. The 6-axis flight controller is pre-programmed and has 3 different speed modes. This means it can not be programmed like the more expensive models. The Eachine FPV has a 1000TVL camera, real-time transmission of high-definition video. The camera transmits at 5.8Ghz on one of 40 channels with 25 mW. Don’t expect massive range I will guess around 40-60m before the signal breaks up. This will allow you to hook up any set of FPV goggles that support this frequency. The eachine small pepper is super light 25gr with battery and I would expect the duct to flex on impact. The battery powering this fpv starter kit is 1S – 200mah – should last 3-4 min.

The remote is a typical X-box budget style. It’s a mode 2 where the throttle is on the left. It has nice metal knobs on top of the sticks that helps control. Let have a quick run through the important Speed H/M/L, Flip 360 degree, the Headless mode where the drone body stays in the same position. Return to home button, where does that go without GPS … To China? The remaining buttons on the remote are trims

The goggles are pretty tiny and very light only 200g. It has build in LIPO battery that can be charged through the micro USB port. The picture is ratio 4:3 in 500*300 pixels. The goggles do not record video on an SD card slot, so any flight footage needs to be recorded in another way.

Flying the eachine small pepper FPV kit was super fun I must say, and it’s super easy to fly. It’s gotta be one of the best beginner drones. I do not have much experience with FPV so this was definitely an eye-opener for me. With winter coming here, this would definitely provide some quality indoor fun with this fpv starter kit. You better get more than one battery. It would properly be a good idea to invest in a handful of those and a charger that can charge them all at once.

On the downside, I did have a problem the goggles where the image is not 100% clear when I wear them, but this is probably my eyesight. Even if it’s super easy to fly indoor ,I did manage to break one of the ducts on the first flight with a hard-on collision. It’s still flying with some tape to hold it together. But hey, this is part of the game.

You might consider replacing the antenna on the goggles, with an omnidirectional for an optimal reception.

Top Drone Pullbacks – Can YOU do this?

One of the greatest drone moves is the drone pullbacks or a dronie, where you pull back and climb with the drone. Imagine the skills needed to move smoothly backward while passing one or multiple narrow passages. In this video, I will show you some mind-blowing pullbacks, performed by one of the most skilled drone pilots I know.

 

 

I saw these moves the first time on Facebook and reached out and asked if I could show his skills to you guys. And luckily he said yes. The pilot is my youtube friend Marlon from Phuket in Thailand, he is a musician by occupation and has flown Phantom 4 standard for the past 8 months. Marlon picked up drone flying in 2015 with a Syma x5c-1 where he started to practice his precision skills.

Marlon has a super cool youtube channel Drone Maneuvers, where he posts all about different challenges that he has completed. If you like this kind of skills you should go and check out his channel. I will leave a link in the description below.

I’m totally blown away by how skilled Marlon is. Unfortunately, he is grounded right now due to new drone regulations in Thailand, where you have to have a license to fly. This can take up to 2 months to get it, and the penalty for breaking the law is quite tough by local standards.

Hi did mention, he is preparing for another drone challenge video where he will complete a Phantom pullback a whopping 500 meters under a local bridge from the shore to the end of the port. The will likely mean without obstacle avoidance and in ATTI mode, because of poor reception. Another reason to follow Drone Maneuvers on Youtube.

Mavic Pro Sport Mode Test – MAX Speed

Mavic Pro Sport Mode Test and Tutorial. During our previous speed test, we found the limitation of Active Track. In this tutorial, I will show you how to enable sport mode and test how fast Mavic will fly.

 

 

In case you missed our Active Track Speed Test

DJI claims that it should be possible to reach 40 mph in Sport Mode equal to 65 kph or 18 m/s. Let’s find out if that is true?

What you need to be aware off

Before we are heading on to speed testing let me show you how to enable sport mode and what you need to be aware of.

  • You want to make sure your battery has plenty of power
  • Multiple flight modes need to be enabled in the DJI GO APP
  • You push the switch on the right side of the remote to sport
  • Mavic is in sport mode when it says Sport in the top of the DJI GO APP
  • Mavic is sport mode is fast so make sure you have plenty of space when you test it out. Very important you need to be aware that obstacle avoidance is not enabled in this flight mode. Flying close to the ground or sea level is also not recommended, as the Mavic will drop altitude if you accelerate too fast.

Test Location

I made the speed test on a closed military air base with plenty of space in a wide 3km runway. The runway has markings for every 300m, this is the distance selected for the speed test in Sport Mode. Footage from Standard mode has been included as well for comparison and to get a feeling for the speed.

It was pretty windy during the test with the wind direction parallel to the runway, so I repeated the test in both directions. Let find out how fast this baby goes downwind. Seems 18 m/s is a good bet on the maximum downwind. This equals 65 kph or 40 mph. This is expected much faster than standard around 20 mph. Let repeat the distance against the wind. The top speed against the wind with 31mph is as expected lower.

Conclusion Mavic Pro Sport Mode Test

The result of the Mavic Pro Sport Mode Test is as expected Mavic struggles to reach the maximum speed in a headwind, but downwind it had no issues reaching the 40 mph as specified. Have you tried Sport mode? and how fast were you able to go? Throw a comment below in the video. Does Sport mode work for recording great looking video? Sport mode is not really good for recording video. The movements are too rapid to make good looking smooth footage. Sport mode is more fun flying or if you need to reach a remote location fast.
