Eachine E129 2.4G 4CH 6-Axis Gyro Altitude Hold Flybarless RC Helicopter RTF
Questions and Answers
I'd jump on one of it weren't for these terrible transmitters with those dead-feeling stick gimbals. Anyone figure out how to bind one to a proper TX?
This one is not as bad as some of them. It even has provision for fitting a neck strap. But of course, I would rather be using my Taranis. There is a sticking point though - because of the altitude hold, BOTH sticks have the up-down stick movement spring loaded to the centre. So if you are using conventional planes most of the time, you would have to either dedicate a transmitter to this heli, or open up the Tx and reset the spring loading each time you fly this one after flying one of your planes.
Can I bind this to Flysky 9ch transmitter?
Ithink it is not possible

What can I say! a blast! The helicopter arrives in a cardboard box wrapped in an unprotected plastic bag, in fact the box is dented and damaged both on the front and back. As a product it is not bad, the 15 minutes of flight are real, the flight skills are those of a toy, very slow in movement and difficult to maneuver in the presence of wind. It has automatic take-off and landing, you must not exceed 15 minutes or land anywhere without warning. under the cyclic there is a led indicating the battery charge, fixed is fully charged, flashes slow almost discharge, flashes fast completely discharged. allows the beginner and the more experienced to fly feeling safe. recommend very careful near obstacles as it has no proximity sensors. The remote control is powered by 4 stylus batteries. arrived on schedule. Serious and reliable seller.

The product arrived in 3 days. Packaging intact. Try all the functions. Batteries already loaded to 75%. Made an indoor test flight. This time I have to thank Banggood.

This Helicopter really packs a punch both in regards to value and performance. Performance Overview: The two throttle rate settings are great. The helicopter handles well in a light breeze; high winds make it very difficult to control; two limiting factors here are a very lightweight aircraft and lack of 'crazy' power - expected from an entry level helicopter. Design & Durability: This Helicopter is durable and has survived many crashes under my ownership. The package includes a spare rear prop and a set of blades - you'll need these spares, as the components that they replace are usually the first to break; it was only necessary for me to utilise these spare parts after I crash landed the helicopter several times. Additional Comments: The radio control range of the transmitter / reciever combo included in the package is impressive and has maintained a strong connection with the helicopter >40ft in the air. The E129 has an inbuilt fail safe that cuts power to the motor if a radio connection is not detected - this is quite an impressive feature for such an inexpensive RC model. The fail safe means that the helicopter will not just fly away if you can no longer control it, but will effectively just drop out of the sky instead; this reduces the potential for it to create a safety hazard if something were to go wrong. Flight times last around 10-15 minutes before a battery swap or recharge is necessary and it's certainly worth purchasing 2 or more batteries in order to maximise your flight time before having to recharge. ONLY USE THE INCLUDED CHARGER FOR YOUR BATTERIES. The motors in this helicopter are brushed and will become hot to the touch after a few minutes of running, however I have not personally had any overheating issues, even after running the helicopter on two full batteries without a cool down period in between. If you're looking for your first RC Helicopter or an addition to your growing collection, I highly recommend Eachine E129.

Even in Japan, if you use the OpenTX radio with technical suitability, you can fly without problems.

arrived!!! Thanks to Banggood, until came quick, from the day of purchase my house were 19 days run (buy 04/03 - Receipt 23/03/2021), some torn in the box but the interior integrity, without fees for those living in Brazil know what I am talking about, this part was the fastest of the whole process, in the customs service arrived on the 17th and was released on the same day, so it is only joy, Already rolled some flights, the product is good, after a search I opted for this model that will suit me perfectly, battery charged is neck pain from so much flight time to a heli, with the contents coming in the box, It is fun for a long time with no need for extra spending since we have spare parts and maintenance keys, kit with 04 batteries, experience #10.

First of can I just say that the delivery times for both helicopters is very quick from China and the packaging was in excellent condition. OK the e129 from eachine is a great looking bird. I ordered this with 3 batteries, and first impressions I am impressed with the feel of the heli its feels more sturdier than the Wltoys V911s which I love. As you expect with most RTF helicopters it comes complete with spare blades, screw driver and Allen key as well as some spare upper connecting rods. The controller is not bad for the price though after a test flight noticed that the controls were twitchy and not fluent however if I was to bind with anouther transmitter it should make flying a little smoother. The flight times are very impressive though I have not timed a flight yet. I have only flown indoors as the weather in Devon is not very pleasant at the moment but eager to test outdoors soon. This is truly a beginners helecopter. ideal for anyone who has not flown RC helicopters before thanks to the altitude hold and the 1 key take off and land, which I am personally not a fan of. though you can manually take of and land which is not bad at all. This bird is very stable in the air and did not require to much trimming after calibration. Pro,s Great flight times stable in the air Nice LED which helps indicating when the battery is low Great colour scheme fantastic build quality for the price and robust if you crash. I crashed twice lol! Price under £50 awsome!!! Con,s for me its the 1 key take off and land feature with I will never use bust thats just my opinion. Transmitter is a bit twitchy and even the throttle has dead bands on throttle up I would recommend using a better transmitter. Conclusion: Bangood have done exceptionally well with fast delivery times and as for the heli it is a great little bird with plenty of potential. Really suited to beginners but for me it is a fun bird for the price.

Good heli . Flight 14 minutes at 0 degrees. Very very quiet.

Have flown helos for over 12 years and this is one of the finest 4 channels helos I have ever seen. All the advances are great, height hold, 6 axis gyro, well made sturdy parts. This beats the V911 by a long shot.

Super stable and the new battery system gets a thumbs up from me. It's super tough, I've crashed this at least 30 times now, some real bad ones too and I've damaged nothing and it's still flying as new. The transmitter is pretty good, gimbals feel OK, it takes 4xAA. Two less than the 119 tx. I've not been able to bind it to my taranis yet. I'm getting 15 minutes flying time. The canopy off the 119 is a direct fit if you want to save 2g off the AUW. I've flown it outdoors with a light breeze, it does get pushed about a bit but this things great outdoors, really is quite fast. I'm having a blast with it. Get one bought!
