ERI8 4K/1080P HD RC Smart Drone w/ Foldable Design, Zoom, Gimbal
You should buy this drone if you're looking for an affordable alternative to DJI's Mavic series of drones. The flight time and flight range are approximately 1/3 of what is offered by the DJI Mavic series, however, the DJI Mavic series are almost 10 times the price of this drone. An other notable difference between the DJI Mavic series and Orion's ERI8 is the fact that the ERI8 uses a 2-axis 90° adjustable drone camera gimbal instead of a 3-axis drone camera gimbal; a 3-axis gimbal offers more stable photos and videos. If you're not looking to do professional aerial drone photography, this drone may be a better option for your you. Otherwise, the ERI8 offers all other features found on DJI Mavic drones: smart/autonomous flight modes, like circle/orbit mode, follow-me/subject tracking mode, and waypoint flight mode. It is also equipped with an optional 4K ultra high-definition camera (or 1080P Full HD camera is such is your preference), and real-time/live HD WiFi videos. This drone also has gesture control, a cool feature that you would only expect to see on much more expensive drones.

This drone is honestly REALLY REALLY cool. It looks exactly like DJI's Mavic Mini, and even has a lot of the same features! This drone just really shows you how overpriced DJI's drones are!!! I honestly couldn't believe it when I got this drone delivered to my home, and opened up the box. The drone looks so slick, it flies really nicely (stable too), AND IT HAS 4K!!!! Can you believe it? 4K isa better than the DJI Mavic Mini, which has 2.7K!!! THis drone ALSO has GESTURE control!!! It works perfectly. For the price, you CAN't and WON't be disappointed!!! I would definitely recommend this (which is the only reason I am taking the time to write this review for you guys - hope its helpful!)
Takes a bit of practice to fly it. There's a button on the remote controller that is used to "trim" the drone flight - make adjustments so its flight is more stable. Once I had this figured out, it was better.
This drone is an excellent drone to the much pricier alternatives offered by DJI drones. Unbelievable how many great features you get with this drone. The flight time and distance are definitely shorter than what you get with DJI BUT is it worth paying an extra 1000$ just to get an extra 10 minutes of flight??????? NO!!!!!
Five -> *****
Great purchase! No regrets, all came as expected, quick delivery, easy to fly, good price - recommended for sure.
HJAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE! (SORRY FOR CAPS)
My fitrs drone - very happy!
I got what I paid for! No disappointments. Well-priced. Fun for sure, didn't want to spend $500 on a DJI drone I would probably get bored with.
I didn't know what to expect when I first ordered this drone. It seemed to have a lot of cool features only found on more expensive DJI drones... but the price was affordable and reasonable. I thought if its a bad drone, then at least it wasn't very expensive. I was very surprised and happy when I got it through the mail. It turned out to be better than I expected! I haven't had a chance to try all the features yet but so far so good! I'd definitely recommend this if you're looking for a good, low cost drone with lots of great features.
Really fast, for once... !!
Great if you're looking for a reasonably price, affordable drone (especially if you're a beginner like me that never tried or bought a drone before)
