$19 Hobbyking i86 Multirotor Controller, an Eagle N6V1 clone?

May 29, 2012 6:31 | By | Add a Comment

Hobbyking released the i86 multirotor controller yesterday, and their stock of over 100 pieces sold out in less than 12 hours. The i86 appears to be a clone of the Eagle N6 V1 controller, though with a price of $19.99 – For comparison, Goodluckbuy sells this for $49

UPDATE 2 JUNE 2012: The i86 is in stock at Hobbyking again!

This controller uses a 3-axix MEMS gyro, and is thus in the same league as the KK controller due to the lack of a separate high-resolution accelerometer. How does it compare to the KK controller, and especially the current-generation controller boards with accelerometers? Read the review here on FPVCentral to find out more!

 

The big benefit of this product, aside from the price, is simplicity. There is only three gain potentiometers and a dip switch to select your type of aircraft (airplane, 2/3/4/5/6-Rotors)
