If you get the baby caddocks turtle edition now, you should also be able to see a shot of my version of the twig. A few things um that we’re going to go through. Obviously, you know it’s a pretty nice little quad. A big reason why i wanted to get this drone in particular was i wanted something. I wanted a much smaller drone that had a hd camera on it, um that was just small, and that was what originally attracted me to the uh eachine twig now and a few other reviewers who talked about how this is kind of a ripoff of another quad, Which i might end up getting because of a few different reasons, but if you see here it’s dollars, but the hc, the baby cat external by itself, this is by itself um. If you get the woo version um, which i believe is what this is, is already uh 66.99, and that is all these prices are as of recording this video right now. So this is crazy. They took 40 bucks and they were able to get a frame. Get the get the esc and the vtx as well as uh the motors and these props all for forty dollars so uh. That means the most expensive part of this entire quad is the uh cat baby cat external camera. So if we just look at this, you know really quickly. Obviously the battery mount is uh xc30 uh. Most of my batteries are xt60, so um i had to actually order some special batteries.
I got these this one tattoo 850 and a few tattoo 452s batteries. I can use these 2s batteries for another quad i have. I just have to swap out the battery plug this one. I actually can’t use for anything else aside from this quad, which is very unfortunate uh for a few different reasons, so right off the bat um eachine. It gives you this this port right here, and this is basically telling you guys that the transmitter that they have in there um is not very good. It’S like a crazy b one and it’s, just not very good. A lot of other reviewers are reporting how it they can only go like it’s, not very far at all before it just kind of runs away and does what they want. The vtx on here is not bad at all. This is the vtx antenna and usually with an antenna like this for the vtx um, you definitely might want to consider upgrading it to a different antenna, there’s, nothing wrong with the vtx itself, but the vtx antenna there is. You know this is not the best kind of antenna, but the port, if you guys, can see um, i don’t know if you’re gon na be able to see this on the camera or not. There is a uh. What this antenna plugs into is very easy to find another antenna. Uh that’ll, do the same thing: uh the props it comes with are the jim fan, uh.
30. 25 r um. I don’t know if these are good or not, they are really flimsy. So you might want to consider getting something that’s a little bit better and these eachine branded motors the kv is 5200 on there. Now the battery strap that this originally comes with, in my opinion, is not very good. Obviously anytime, you order something from race day quads. You get a free battery strap, so i swapped that out as well as on the bottom. This is where the micro usb plug is – and i put a few of the pads as i put two pads on top of each other as well as that i’m. A grip as well just so that if the battery goes on there, that battery is going to be rubbing right up against that micro usb port, and that is not going to be good at all. You do not want that, but at the end of the day, in my opinion, i actually don’t recommend this quad at all um. I am going to keep it just because the baby caddock’s turtle is like 70 dollars by itself. I can definitely find a use for an extra camera, especially a camera like that. A lot of people don’t necessarily like the baby cat external and fbv feeds, not that is not as good, but the fact that you can put this on a micro quad and you get uh. Hd footage is really really awesome.
I’M gon na try and find another quad for me to put that on um, but i mean the price point of this at like a hundred and how much was it on bank it again it. It was only 116 dollars so uh. It is what it is on that it depends on. If you want that or not um. I recommend not getting this, and if you want the baby goddess here, i’ll just buy that by itself um. For a few different reasons. I mean right off the bat there’s, a few settings that aren’t very good on there um. I can’t even figure out what this went to, but i chopped it up like the very first flight, because i don’t remember what this went to, but nothing seemed to affect it right off the first flight. The camera actually went out and it was just a black feed, and that was right off the very first time now. Yes, there’s ways you can fix that, but the fact that that was on my first flight really disappoints me, um, as well as the fact that you know the you’re not going to get very good range. I have no clue what this is, but everything seems to work just fine, even with that chopped up. But then my the fb feed went out. You could see the osd and as a black screen, which means that you can’t fix that um, at least i hope so, but and then the fact that this like this is the uh.
This is the antenna that it comes with, for you know, there’s just so many flaws with this quad that it was very, very disappointing to me that that was my experience now this is with eachine, so you do have that it actually does come with a pretty It actually does come with a pretty nice case. This is what the case it comes with um, so you get an extra set of props and a screwdriver, and then you get the caddix kind of control board you’re going to plug oh yeah that’s. What that was that’s what this was this so now i can’t even control my baby cats turtle so that sucks um. This was the this was the plug that plugs into the caddix turtle control board, so that you can change the settings now. It is set to start recording, basically right away, or at least it was before i crashed it, and the osd went out. So hopefully, if i move this over to a new quad, hopefully we’ll get that all fixed up and i’ll be able to see but that’s. What this was, but now that’s chopped up and i lost the plastic mount on there. If i found that plastic mount i used this, i mean these are in good shape. You could easily fix that, but there you guys go that’s my review of the eachine twig. The flight footage i got from it is just me crashing so there’s no point a few other reviewers do have a decent flight footage and, to be honest with you, none of them flat out said don’t buy it, but the reviews were not the best for it.
I was just really attracted to it because of the baby caddix turtle option and how cheap it was, but obviously lesson learned you get what you pay for, but there you guys go. That is the e sheen twig. It is what it is. If you think you can do uh your little tricks to fix a lot of the flaws that this thing comes with, it might be worth it because of the price point. If you already have some stuff in place to kind of mitigate a lot of that stuff. Like, for instance, if you already have batteries that work with it, etc, etc, but uh for me personally, it definitely wasn’t really worth the investment and hopefully we’ll be getting a better one in the future, all right guys. Once again, my name is spencer.
