The Eachine QX95S is an upgrade to a popular micro quad. Eachine made some small but important upgrades with the QX95S. If you are looking for a small but powerful brushed quad then read on.
What is the Eachine QX95S?
The QX95S is a typical brushed micro FPV quad in a lot of respects. It isn’t flashy but can get the job done. The micro QX line-up of drones from Eachine are popular because of that and this S model adds a few important upgrades. If you are looking for a no-frills micro brushed racer this is an excellent place to start.
Eachine QX95S Improvements
The frame is a little sturdier than its predecessor. You’ll get more powerful “Dark Edition” motors. They’ve opted to use a LiHV battery that delivers better power and efficiency. The QX95S gets a much-needed beeper and provides a built-in OSD. It is also a little smaller, more a 90mm machine now than a 95 mm model.
The Eachine QX95S Camera and VTX
The QX95S comes with a 600 TVL camera with a 25 mW VTX with 48 channels. The camera angle is adjustable from 15 to 35 degrees. There isn’t any isolation mounts or dampers so you may experience some jello from vibrations.
Eachine QX95S Design
One of the odder changes is that the QX95S comes with two different types of propellers. The front propellers are the Hubsan LadyBird style, but the rear ones are the rounded X4 style props. This is probably due to size restrictions from the quad being more compact than the original QX95. You will want to stock both kinds of propellers for quick repairs.
The QX95S is, of course, compatible with Betaflight and comes with version 3.1 preloaded. It flies pretty well right out of the box so tuning it isn’t a necessity. You can get it with either a Frysky, Flysky or DSMX receiver. The model that we tested had a FrSky receiver.
Should I Get a QX95S?
Overall the QX95S is an excellent little micro FPV quad. It is one of the best brushless options out there right now. No, it isn’t perfect. The propellers are strangly fragile and I went through a handful before I found the sweet spot. But this little quad has some spunk. If you are looking for a small micro FPV brushed quad then we would definitely recommend the QX95S. It is a definite improvement over the original QX95, but also better than the popular QX90 and QX90C models as well. For around $60 the Eachine QX95S is a solid deal.

If you are looking for something that is more of an all-in-one solution then the Eachine Q90C is probably the best out there. You’ll get a quad with almost as much punch as the QX95S and you can get a remote and FPV goggles for under $80. That’s a steal.
