This is the ancient model that still uses a Naze32 as the flight controller. They have more modern version with the F3 controller for waaaay cheaper. Like $115 cheaper.

Hell, the Wizard S version with the upgraded motors, and F4 flight controller is still cheaper than this drop.

They're trying to sell an incredibly old version of this quad.
Oh god, are people still buying this obsolete piece of crap. So many other better options.

What would you suggest?

Either build your own or a Holybro Kopis is pretty good imo
Good price on RTF.
I've had my Wizard for two days and here is what I've learned:

It came with loose screws, and the stock blades can not handle a 4s battery. Other then those two issues, it's (mostly) a pretty great entry level racing quadcopter.

On my maiden flight, I armed the copter and put it in the air with it hovering just above eye level a few feet in front of me and I see something black fall off the bottom . I put it back on the ground for inspection.
The thing that fell out? You guessed it, a screw had fallen out, in fact it was missing two screws. So I took it back inside to make sure everything was nice and tight and replaced the missing screws. When all was said and done were quite a few screws that were not tight enough. There was also no loctite to be seen, so I will be going through later to fix that.

So fair warning, make sure to go over every screw and bolt on this thing before putting it into the air, and buy yourself some loctite.

After a few flights with the Wizard I decided to go and buy an upgraded 4S battery, since the ESC's are rated for it and I wanted a spare battery for more flight time. I made a few passes on my brand new, fully charged 4S. Then I decided to punch it; full throttle, full forward pitch. After a few seconds of this shenanigans the props completely grenaded mid-flight. I could actually hear pieces of blade, a few hitting the frame of the quad and one piece whizzed by my head, while the poor Wizard fell helplessly to the ground. How do I know that the blades didn't break when the quad hit the ground? There wasn't a single chunk of blade to be seen anywhere in the vicinity of where the quad landed, and it was on dirt, no grass no bushes.

So if you're going to run a more powerful 4S battery, be sure to buy some upgraded blades too! Otherwise you're going to be making some repairs as I did:

Other then the above issues, I'm pretty happy with this thing. It's super responsive, with a strong frame (no damage from my blade explosion incident), good electronics, and very reasonably priced. I would suggest downloading Betaflight so you can do a little tuning on this thing, as from the factory it is only configured for Angle mode.
Have to say I'm disappointed in the price. Pnp should be no more than $100, seeing as you can find the rtf version (receiver, battery) for $100 now
This is way over priced. Banggood.com, the primary retailer for Eachine products, has the ARF model for $109.

but the RTF model is still cheaper here

Not atm. The RTF is 195 dollars on Banggood.com
Thanks. Yeah just got the same mail myself.

I emailed support about it a few days ago and got this back:

"At this time, we have not received any update from our vendor on the new estimated ship date, please stand by as they will be sending all of the drop members an email update in the next few days. I apologize for any inconvenience. "

"Due to an unexpected delay, these orders may ship later than the original estimated ship date. Our apologies for any inconvenience. If we find that the drop is going to be delayed by more than 30 days, we will let you know.

If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button on your transactions page and our Community Support Team will be able to help cancel your order up until it is ready for shipment."

The most generic update I can imagine.
What is the flight time of this?

I went and bought a 4 cell lipo, 2000mah
OMG Yaaasssss
Great to see that you guys are getting in some decent FPV racing stuff. Would love a drop on a nice transmitter. Something like the turnigy evolution or the taranis x7 would be awesome!
I've heard a lot of good things about these. They aren't quite as good as some others such as the Alien, but they're cheaper and ready to fly out of the box.

+1 on the X7!
