Don’t let the price of this cheap Racer foul you, the Eachine Racer 250 is one nice quadcopter! Even if the package or the quad it self don’t look any good, believe me, it is good, specially for the price.

The quadcopter it self comes already with a 1000TVL (low light) connected to a 600mw 5.8G 32 CH video transmitter with integrated OSD which works pretty good and has more that enough rage. But I would recommend you upgrade the camera to a Runcam Swift in the future, only if you find the camera isn’t good with the exposure of the sky/land when you fly.

You can buy the Eachine Racer 450 in a RTF(Ready to Fly), PNF(Plug and Fly) and a ARF(Almost Ready to Fly) kit and also a RTF version without the screen/video receiver. The RTF is obviously the complete set with the Quadcopter, Controller, 2 batteries, Battery charger and FVP screen/receiver. The ARF has everything the RTF version has, except the Controller and video receiver. The PNP version is the cheapest one and only comes with the quadcopter, no battery, no charger, no controller and no video receiver.
There was also a DIY kit where the quadcopter came disassembled in a box, for someone that has no problem assembling it and soldering the ESC’s it was a cheap and good option. But I guess they discontinued it, because I can’t find it anymore.

The OSD that come integrated with the VTX is nothing fancy, but it does provide the most useful information you need to race this type of quad. It shows the current video channel, the battery voltage, and the time you have been flying.

Pros, and Cons

600mw VTx with OSD
