Eachine’s new drone offers the same perks as the previous ones, and those wanting a great starter drone should definitely consider getting one.
The Eachine RedDevil sounds terrifying, but it is rather cute once you see it. It is tiny and has a large singular camera at its center, giving it a cyclops look. It is small, fast, and its controls are easy enough to learn. The main selling point of the RedDevil, as with most mini-drones, is its affordability. Those wanting to learn the basics of drone flying but do not want to spend a lot can get the RedDevil to start. It costs $102 for the entire package, perfect for those who are not yet willing to spend on a more serious drone.
For downsides, being a mini-drone, it is stripped to the bare minimum to decrease its weight. Physically, the RedDevil has many exposed parts. It consists mostly of plastic from its casing to its rotors, which means it is not as durable as one may like. A few bad bumps and crashes can permanently remove the RedDevil from the flight list.
The exposed parts also mean it cannot have any contact with water. This means you have to be careful while flying and you cannot use it in drizzling weather.
The smaller frame of the drone also means a smaller battery life. Smaller drones have a flight time ranging 5-10 minutes, which does not sound like a lot for newer users. You may find yourself at the recharging station more times than you may like, but for the price, you get what you pay for.
