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.

8 Drone Footage HACKS in 4 min

Tip 8: Don’t use auto mode, only use manual mode for the camera setting. Switch your drone into manual and fix your iso to 100 and set your white balance to the appropriate weather type.

Tip 7: Only use flat color profiles like D-Cinelike or D-log formats. This will preserve the maximum dynamic range in your footage. In other words, keep all the details. You can apply color correction or LUT’s in post-production. Don’t rely on the camera to make those decisions for you

Tip 6: Shoot in 4K if possible, even it’s not really not needed, but if this is the native camera resolution you will get the best possible quality. 4K offer many advantages + you can scale it down to 1080p in post-production. 4K you can crop without loss of quality to 1080p.

Tip 5: Movies are shoot 24fps with a few exceptions. Shoot with this 24 or 25 fps to generate a cinematic look. These framerate generates a decent amount of motion blur to generate that familiar look that is pleasant to the eye. Getting the right amount of motion blur requires the shutter speed to be kept at double the framerate.

Tip4: Think about your composition when shooting. Use the rule of 3rd to make your footage look more interesting. Obeying the rule of 3rd, your primary subject should be shifted to either sides or top/bottom. The rule of 3rd is not a law, but will definitely help the look of your footage.

========================================================

Tip3: When recording, try to keep it to the 3S: Slow, Smooth and Simple. Keeping it simple, with only one direction without correction will often produce a more convincing result. If you are not happy with the result, repeat it again until you get it right. You can combine it with a soft gimbal tilt if you wanna go more advanced.

Tip2: The worst condition for filming in bright sunlight. This will make your shutter speed very fast, especially on drones with no aperture to control the amount of light entering the camera. High shutter speed does not only reduce the motion blur but could also make your footage look stuttering or jerky because even the slightest vibration or movement is captured by the camera. Use the sun to your advantage and keep it behind or on the side of the drone, and use it in your favor as a big light source from behind.

Tip1: The right lighting is so important for a great result. That’s why you should plan your shooting during the first and last hour of the day. This is by the professionals called the golden hour, because of the soft light and the long shadows.
