Get ready, we’re checking out the Eachine Tyro79S, ready to fly kit.
The Eachine Tyro79S is a cheap brushless toothpick-style quadcopter.
It comes as RTF kit and is ideal drone for a newbie that wants to fly his first drone.
What’s in the kit
- It’s a surprisingly complete kit, including all the essential plus many extra that a builder may want – zip ties, spanners, silicon pads, multiple straps etc – it’s all here and listed below. The parts you would expect are in black, the parts you probably would not are in red
- 1 x 140mm racing frame kit
- 4 x 1607 2800KV brushless motors
- 1 x 4 IN 1 20A BLHeli_S ESC
- 1 x F4 flight controller
- 1 x 700TVL CMOS camera
- 1 x 5.8G 40CH 0mw/25mw/200mw switchable VTX
- 4 x 3030 4-blade propellers
- Zip ties
- 2 x different length battery straps
- Silicon battery pad
- Carbon Fibre landing pad to protect battery
- spare JST connectors and cables
- Spare Prop Nuts
- 2 x spanners
If this is your first quad you will need some extra gear to get flying:
- Batteries 4s 550mah – 750mah (I recommend CNHL 4s 650mah or CNHL 4s 850mah)
- Propellers (I recommend Gemfan 3052)
- A transmitter (I recommend FRSKY Taranis X-Lite as reviewed here)
- Goggles (I recommend Skyzone SKY03O as reviewed here)
This is ready to fly in the sense that it comes with a controller, battery charger and the drone with builtin receiver and the drone is also already built.
However, it does not come with FPV goggles, so if you don’t have one pair of goggles, you will have to buy one pair of FPV goggles.
This is basically the exact same model as the Tyro79 that you’d have to build on your own.
This one, however, has the XM plus receiver that’s already installed and bound to the radio.
Considering the total cost of everything that you get here, you get the drone already built, you get the receiver radio, you get two batteries in this kit, a charger and all those parts together – the price difference is acceptable.
What you’re paying the premium for the extra $20 is to have this prebuilt and all ready to go.
The things that are flawed on the Tyro79S are the video transmitter and the camera. The cameras has a very narrow field of view. And the video translator is not the greatest in terms of transmission and reception. So if you do get this kit, those are the two things I would probably recommend you upgrade.
It’s not really absolutely necessary to do those upgrades. But I think at some point you’re probably wanting to do that.
Tyro79S isn’t meant to be a racer or anything like that, it is a decent FPV machine for people starting out. There’s a pretty good next step for someone that’s got like a TinyHawk RTF kit, as you can use controller and goggles of this drone with the TinyHawk (see our review of TinyHawk 2 here).
Again, the quality that is might not be the greatest, but it seems like it flies pretty good. Let me know what you guys think. Talk to you later.
