INTRODUCTION

Just 2 months after the introduction of the Wizzard X220, here is a new update where now the FC upgraded for a SPF3 and motors for 2205 type. Both the Eachine Wizzard ARF and RTF mode 2 now integrate all these updates. This short mini-review is more focusing on the new elements and associated configuration. Other informations can be found in the former X220 review

BOX CONTENT

+ 1 x Eachine Wizzard X220
+ 4 x Spare props (2 CW, 2 CCW)
+ 1 x 5.8G linear antenna
+ 4 x Nuts (2CW, 2CCW)
+ 10 x 5045 tri-blades props

OVERVIEW

From a visual point of view, no real visible difference. Still a strong 3K carbon H-frame. The devil is in the details. The SPF3 board is flipped of -90 degrees and flashed with betaflight 2.9.1

-SIDE VIEW

null

Some strong 20A BLHeli_S ESC multishoot compatible. They are flashed with the BLheli 16.2. Good news they can be upgraded via BLHeli suite or even simpler via BLheli configurator

null

-REAR VIEW

Still no Cloverleaf antenna but a simple linear antenna. A rubber o-ring jails the SMA connector. To fasten correctly the 5.8G antenna, you need to push the o-ring

-UPPER VIEW

null

A PPM receiver can be easily installed inside. You have servo plug to attach the RX module. If you plan to install a SBUS receiver, more work is required

null

If you plan to carry a HDcam, the battery strap must be placed more rear.

-BOTTOM VIEW

Now location of the lights are fixed correctly, green on front and red on rear.

-WEIGHT

null

484g total weight

Motors

2205 motors (right) versus former 2204. They give more punch for sure something around 10-20% more. Always appreciated

UNBOXING, CONFIGURATION AND DEMO FLIGHT

CONCLUSIONS

The Wizzard X220 was already one of the best Eachine racer. With this evolution, you have in hand a stronger machine and a super acro flyer. The BLHeli_S ESC are doing a fantastic job and thanks to the SPF3 FC, the machine really reactive. With last BF installed, even with default settings, beginners can learn to fly acro so easily. I just regret the absence of a builtin buzzer and eventually a OSD would have been perfect.

PROS

+ Super acro flyer
+ BLheli_S 20A ESC
+ 2205 motors
+ Strong machine
+ Cheap

CONS

– Still no builtin buzzer
– No OSD
– Narrow FOV
