We have always been concerned about the idea of FPV in a racing drone because this has to be in perfect harmony. A camera with sufficient stability to capture the most fabulous images even at a higher speed.
This Eachine Wizard X220HV quadcopter review will guide us in the knowledge of a drone and we will find out if the Eachine has succeeded in combining these two features so that they are successful or on the contrary.
Eachine Wizard X220HV Racing Quadcopter Review
No matter what extra features a drone gives you if it’s not in the forefront of being able to use it by a beginner. Things are divided, but the most important thing about a drone is the simplicity and ease with which any user, whether pro or entry-level, can handle it.
Not only FPV is important for such drones, but also the price that has recently dropped significantly on racing drones because it has become a popular “sport”. Eachine Wizard X220HV is considered perhaps a more expensive gadget but in the following we will find out what its qualities are and why it deserves all the money.
Eachine Wizard X220HV features
We describe an impressive drone in terms of speed, design and camera.
If we take them in order and talk about the speed we first specify the availability of two versions, ARF and RTF give you the opportunity to choose exactly what you want.
Both versions come with four 2205 2300KV brushless motors installed, two of which are CW (clockwise) while the other pair is marked as CCW (counter-clockwise).
Depending on the version you choose, you will have some details to consider, such as the ARF variant you should pair the CW engine with a counter-clockwise spinning propeller and a CCW engine with a clockwise spinning propeller to prevent your propellers coming loose during flight.
Being a drone that you can buy “on pieces” has many removable and exchangeable parts, obvious the battery too, which is recommended upgrading to a 4S battery for more power and better speed.
The motors have detachable protectors, and this also helps to personalize the drones in your favor. This is nothing but the fact that your motors are protected against dust, dirt and, of course, against kicks, but if they are detached, the drone becomes lighter and an easier flight results.
Eachine Wizard X220HV Design Review:
If we still specified detachable parts, we will continue talking about the X220HV design for which Eachine has worked a lot, not just for this model, but in general this brand has a modern and perfectionist design.
They are constantly moving and developing, upgrading their drones to be light but powerful. For its price category, the X220HV is the best racing gadget.
The X frame design created for this drone is somehow a novelty, an improvement that gives the X220HV much more power and maneuverability. We’ll get much better stability with this form and a smoother flight.
Also in the design category, we have to discuss the “problem” of props with 2 or 3 blades. The Wizard X220HV with 3-blade propellers that is becoming more and more popular has more stability and better balance. Of course, if you’re a pro, you’re doing well with 2-blade propellers too. Those with 3 blades are not necessarily for beginners.
Eachine Wizard X220HV Camera Review:
The last part we are talking about in this review of the Eachine Wizard X220HV is the 700TVL Camera. An absolute PRO for this drone, no matter what we choose from ARF or RTF.
This camera is perfect for a racing drone and especially if you are a beginner, it might be that an experienced user wants something more developed, but for this price category and for this drone, the camera is excellent.
It has a wide field of vision and provides good clarity even in low light. Being mounted on an adjustable stand, it offers flexibility and the ability to cover exactly the area you want to shoot.
In case you want, there is space for the possibility of mounting an action camera like GoPro, but it is good to consider that this will make the drone will have a higher weight and bit more unstable.
