The manufacturer Eachine is continuing its range of small, easily accessible radio-controlled helicopters. After the E119 and the E129, here is the E130! The recipe is simple: Eachine took over the E129, retained its main characteristics, but producing a slightly larger device. The main rotor thus measures 35 cm diagonally instead of 25 cm. It measures 34.5 cm in length, 6.2 in width and 10.8 in height. What to fly indoors, but also to embark on flights outdoors if there is not too much wind.
The main motor is a 050 brushed, the anti-torque rotor motor is an 8520. The propulsion system is of the flybarless type, without bell bar, and with fixed pitch blades. It is therefore not possible to engage in backward flights or acrobatic figures: the E130 is a helicopter designed for quiet flights. It is suitable for beginner pilots who are not round aces and who do not intend to become so. The E130 has the automatic height hold function inherited directly from the E129, to further simplify piloting.
The battery is a Lipo 2S 700 mAh 20C which ensures, according to Eachine, more than 15 minutes of autonomy. It comes with a USB charger. The joysticks of the supplied radio control are in neutral, which allows it to be used either in mode 2 (gas on the left) or in mode 1 (gas on the right). The device weighs 131 grams with its battery.
