Eachine decided to release their tiny DIY toothpick: the Tryo69. We will review it in this article with a step by step guide to build it yourself. Is it worth to get it for 62$ ? Is it a little quad very nervous ?

Unboxing

All items from the BOX
Unpacking each item
Camera TPU protection + all screws
Motors
First step is to install the motors
Put all screws + the longest one for the FC+ESC
It’s easier to install the lipo strap before !
Solder the Xt30
Add the anti-vibration damping ball
i change the spacers for beads hama.
Install the ESC.
Install the FC
Solder the motors
Solder the receivers.
For Flysky i sold on Rx2. Rx1 doesn’t work.
For Frsky sold Sbus pads.
The only place to put the receiver
Betaflight : configure receivers and modes, motors direction.
Let’s fly

Frame

The frame is a 105mm wheelbase carbon frame. It is not the best carbon that you will find but for the price it is correct.

  • Item Name: 105mm Wheelbase 2mm Thickness Bottom Plate
  • Wheelbase: 105mm
  • Plate Thickness: 2mm

Canopy

Well the canopy is not really a canopy šŸ™‚ It is just something to hold the camera and protect a little bit the fc. Too bad that they don’t created one for it.

Propellers

The propellers are the KingKong one, it is good but now with the HQProp there is a huge difference.

Motors

Well as Kabab said, the motors are surprising and really good, if you are looking for cheap and good motors for another build you should take this one !

Camera/VTX

Eachine choose this combo camera/vtx to reduce the price but well … The camera doesn’t handle correctly the light and the VTX output power is limited to 25mw …

Caddx Beetle V2 Camera AIO VTX

  • Output Power: 25mW
  • Channel: 48CH
  • Input Voltage: 2.9-5.5V
  • Support SmartAudio

  • TV System: PAL
  • Image: 4:3
  • Lens: 2.1mm
  • Dimensions: 14x14x16mm
  • Weight: 4.1g (Camera + VTX)

Flight

This toothpick is rudimentary, that’s why the weight is really light with less 50g.

It is really easy to build and a good entry if you want to start FPV. The soldering is simple and the only thing to do is to add the lipo strap before putting the FC/ESC, and correctly (see the picture with the LIPO). By the way the LIPO strap is not great for 2S LIPO, but ok for 3/4S.

When you will solder the motors, please be carefull a little bit because the pad of the motors are close to some ESC components.

No protection for the canopy and VTX is bad for a crash so please take care to NOT crash šŸ™‚

You need to flash the firmware of the FC (the one we got was from september 2018); and you will not able to use the smartaudio otherwise:

But well the ration between the price and quality is nice. The acceleration of the quad is awesome and with such flights we are getting close to a 5inch.

By default the tyro69 is quite impossible to flight, so here the PID used in the video below, so use them and you’re flight will be better šŸ™‚

Where to buy ?

As usual with Eachine it is mainly available on Banggood:
