$50 Knockoff Drone Better Than DJI Mavic 2 Pro?

Check out the Cheap Thing Vs. Expensive Thing gear: https://kit.com/IndyMogul

Is a $50 dollar DJI Mavic 2 Pro knockoff better than the real thing? Today Griffin Hammond is going to find out!

In this episode of Cheap Thing Vs. Expensive Thing, we take the $50 Eachine E58 and the $1500 DJI Mavic 2 Pro for test flights to see how they compare in portability, flight maneuverability and image quality.

The Eachine E58 goes to extreme lengths to mimic the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, from copying it’s styling to mimicking key features, but is it a realistic competitor to it’s expensive counterpart? Watch to find out!

    The question is who shoots Dji Mavick

  2. Rusty Valdez on March 18, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Okay, now 4k vs 720p… Do we even need to compare? No.

  3. Мир за 3 Минуты on March 18, 2021 at 12:20 am

    I had the $50 drone. Eachine e58.
    Worst drone ever… I don’t know why they called it a drone, it can barely fly on its own, much more take good videos. DJI, and only DJI!!!

  4. Gatorman Smith on March 18, 2021 at 12:21 am

    I just bought a mavic air 2 from DJI 1,000 bucks plus $300 for the warranty through Best buy.. I think I’m going to return it and get my money back because I’ve only flown it one time in seven days for about 20 minutes I’m not really impressed I think I rather have a PS5 🤷🏽‍♂️

  5. Álvaro Nunes on March 18, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Olá meu caríssimo. Você não teria nenhum drone já usado por um preço bem em conta?

  6. AFP everything on March 18, 2021 at 12:24 am

    The camera is way better on the e machine lol

  7. Darius Butler on March 18, 2021 at 12:25 am

    I Dislike the video only because its an unfair comparison. With that Eachine, The DJI Mini or Mini 2 wouldve been the one to pick, Plus its expensive but it qualifies for this video, Husan has a drone that wouldve been best compared to the Mavic 2 pro.

  8. Coming soon on March 18, 2021 at 12:27 am

    The low cost drone is the #eMachine to the #IBMpc of the 90s😆

  9. Mysterious Rider on March 18, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Dont they make a knock of version same size has the mavic on any other drone ? ? ?

  10. Kam’RRunn TV on March 18, 2021 at 12:29 am

    I would use the cheap one for a uav assist drone in ultimate laser tag

  11. Jørgen Zamora on March 18, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Knockoff drones fly well but their camera sensors suck. Batteries suck… And they don’t have the current remote control tech DJI has.

  12. Quads’n mtb on March 18, 2021 at 12:33 am

    its good for beginers

  13. Clarkie Nabablit on March 18, 2021 at 12:34 am

    I think the 50$ most advance because has self destruction🤣

  14. Floofy Floofy on March 18, 2021 at 12:37 am

    other people can go higher with the Eachine E58

  15. Jude on March 18, 2021 at 12:38 am

    how is this better? the drone is literally filming in 144p

  16. Omar Carrasco on March 18, 2021 at 12:38 am

    😆 why is there such comparisons? That little drone is beautiful but that’s it it stays more on the floor than flying!

    So you see the rubbish lies (will be polite) Youtube adverts. all I was getting at start of proper Youtube videos, ones nothing to do with drones. The 2 employees loosing patence with employer ripping people off, So they make a DJI for now just $80, that is a really reduced price. I knew it would not be. $25 drone without the extras.
    Got the extra batteries and case. £52 here in England. Got from a UK warehouse as thought it will arrive. so looked at the videos of people that can really fly drones well. drone channels . It seemed ok for a cheppee, No GPS. got for sisiter littrlun for christmas 2019. Took until January with me to use. I use first on a big enough open field. off it went, would not lower. went over the main 30MPH road. See cars going by, just missed, ended up in the trees, bush line so ok, no damage, I try on own next day. Biggest lot of crap going.

    Your footage rubbish like mine, Seen better, some nicer than others. different camera, what ever they get in that week that works, no quality. now one battery thrown away. Charged so many times in the hope we go and use with littlun. He lost interest, never been used since this video, fit for the bin. 4Gb card bought. £55 wasted. Batteries chaged to be left. does them no favours. another short. it is, Youtubes shortest video in the words of this.

    https://youtu.be/O4MCLqmz6Bs. Moaned, said not work, crap, sent video. Wish or what ever it came from not interested, had to long. So not used for a month of getting, never work. "buy another", great help. so** off customer service


  19. moh ala on March 18, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Unfair compare

  20. Gameryusic 825 on March 18, 2021 at 12:45 am

    I have the e99. Its my birthday present but haven’t tried it yet. Imma edit this comment once I get my hands on it.

  21. Edwin Kiran on March 18, 2021 at 12:46 am

    I own the DJI mavic pro 2 and I love it

  22. Bricz6176 on March 18, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Bruv I found a better drone in Indonesia just instead of a camera its with a flashlight
    Edit: it only cost $13

  23. Keith's Place on March 18, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Hence only 50 bucks, i think it`s good for a practice drone.

  24. ACE DYLAN ACIBAR on March 18, 2021 at 12:49 am

    it can be slow or medium or fast

  25. Isreal Perez on March 18, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Can you do fast-f4 drone vs dji

  26. Drone Guy on March 18, 2021 at 12:52 am

    I own the DJI mavic 2 pro and I love it

  27. long xiao on March 18, 2021 at 12:53 am

    It’s useless to compare a $50 piece of toy with a $1500 video equipment.

  28. Ben S on March 18, 2021 at 12:53 am

    *simple one is a toy the other is a tool*

  29. Ak_.rom- on March 18, 2021 at 12:53 am

    When you can’t even afford the 50 dollar one

  30. Gordiewastaken on March 18, 2021 at 12:53 am

    I use the cheep drone

  31. Floofy Floofy on March 18, 2021 at 12:53 am

    Also there’s a problem with drone other people can fly higher with the eachine

  32. iR0nMAn_AF on March 18, 2021 at 12:56 am

    Being an Inspire owner I find comparisons like this silly. Eachine and Hubsan make decent products for their price point and if it weren’t for them our hobby wouldn’t be as popular. Of course the radio isn’t the best or the glass on the camera compare to my x5 Zenmuse camera but it gets folks like my kids something to start on before I introduce them to say the Mavic Air 2.
    the production was nice in this video though.

  33. A G. on March 18, 2021 at 12:56 am

    This comparison is like: "what’s better a turd or a car? you can park the turd easier cause it’s small, but in terms of driving, the car definitely wins"..

  34. Romanas Jerochovas on March 18, 2021 at 12:57 am

    The cheap drone should be named Not Eachine but Shitty.

  35. Swatz 2 on March 18, 2021 at 12:58 am


  36. Tomas Armstrong on March 18, 2021 at 12:58 am

    Here’s a list that helped me out.
    In the end, I went with #10.


  37. ivan schafeldt on March 18, 2021 at 12:59 am

    next episode compare a Mercedes E300 to a trabant ffs.
    of course the mavic won, it cost 28 times the price.

  38. FreDEV on March 18, 2021 at 12:59 am

    Long aswer: this video
    Short answer: the knock off is trash dont buy it.

  39. Rob P on March 18, 2021 at 12:59 am

    Fun to watch 🙂 liked thanks 👍

  40. 4B vEnOm on March 18, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Should I start with this cheap one instead getting the mini mav

  41. Alain Patry on March 18, 2021 at 1:02 am

    Here is my drone, it is great especially for the price …

  42. Robert Richard on March 18, 2021 at 1:03 am

    YONKERS! Home sweet shitty home, didn’t know you guys were out and about over here, would have loved to see you in action. Come back soon!

  43. Brad Collins on March 18, 2021 at 1:04 am

    All drones up to $300 are no good. But comparing a mavic pro to a $50 drone is a little ridiculous dont ya think

  44. little charlie on March 18, 2021 at 1:06 am

    I heard registration is 300$

  45. stempo1 on March 18, 2021 at 1:06 am

    i’m having a hard time believing a 1500 dollar drone wins over a 50 dollar drone

  46. Indy Mogul on March 18, 2021 at 1:07 am

    Real talk. The Eachine was probably WAY more fun to fly

  47. Weirdguy123 on March 18, 2021 at 1:08 am

    I will always prefer DJI

  48. Ivar Erickson on March 18, 2021 at 1:10 am

    So stupid

  49. ACE DYLAN ACIBAR on March 18, 2021 at 1:10 am

    the e58 is my drone

  50. l f on March 18, 2021 at 1:10 am
