Review – Eachine Micro Skyhunter PNP 780mm FPV Airplane

In this post I’ll be reviewing the Eachine Micro Skyhunter. This is an EPO foam airplane with a 780mm wingspan. It comes PNP (plug-n-play), meaning that it contains the airframe, power system and FPV system (there is a variant without it as well) and requires minimal assembly. This is my first airplane, since the scratch builds I attempted before this were complete failures. A lot of people say this is not a suitable plane for beginners, as it is fast, does not have self-correcting tendencies, and doesn’t have a rudder. I still wanted to find out for myself though, and my main aim is too determine whether this is a good option for mini quad pilots who want to fly something different (and may be bored by trainer planes). This is very similar to the ReadyMadeRC Nano Skyhunter, probably coming from the same factory, though it uses a different material (EPO instead of EPP). What interested me most about this plane is the compact size and the fact that it uses common mini quad parts, meaning that if you’re a mini quad pilot who wants to fly this, you probably have the right size of LiPo, as well as better motors you can put on it.

Here is a quick disclaimer (inspired by SoloProFan on RCGroups) before we get to the review itself.

How to fix PAL cropping on the Eachine ProDVR

This will be a short post, and here I will show you how to fix cropped PAL video on the Eachine ProDVR. The ProDVR is probably the cheapest DVR on the market and works very well. However, it has for a long time had an issue where the bottom few lines would be removed from the picture if your system was using PAL. This is especially an issue if you have an OSD and want it to show up in your recordings. However, a new firmware has been released which fixes this issue, and this is how you use it.

Warning: Flashing new firmware risks bricking your DVR and I am not aware of any method to recover bricked DVRs. This process worked perfectly for me but I am not responsible if you brick your DVR attempting this.
