This is NOT a leader 120. Just using the frame. Broke a bunch of other stuff so I cobbled this together. Ended up being a simple build that tears it up in the yard pretty decently on 2S. The two biggest downsides are the 25mW aio cam (so you can't fly very far) and this silly KingKong stack with only 2 mounting holes in the ESCs. Otherwise I've done extremely minimal tuning on Butterflight (3.5) and it is a fun little guy to rip around the yard or during my lunch breaks. The leader 120 frame is nice if you already have a whoop-style aio cam/vtx. It makes putting everything together very straightforward and easy. I know folks have crammed micro cams in there but I couldn't be bothered to shoehorn one in there. Plus, the aio cam really helps keep the overall price and weight down. I'd say it flies great for the price.

It's very easy to build and perfect for a first build. The parts I chose for this build are a balance..

The EV200D is Eachine's long awaited follow-up to their budget oriented EV100. These offer a much larger 42 degree field of view (FOV) on 16:9 720p LCoS displays. This is the second goggle to utilize the LCoS technology behind the failed Topsky F7X. Traditionally FPV goggles use LCD displays, so LCoS is unproven, but Eachine did a great job implementing the technology. Features DVR HDMI input 42..
