Built for the air. Ready for snow. Waterproofed, KISSed, Shrike Style FPV quadjumacopter. It just doesn't get any better than this.

All seriousness though, this is probably the best handling quad I've ever flown. Not sure if it's the top-mount frame, the all-KISS setup or what, but damn she flies great.

Don't hit your battery on that tight frame. :)

Looking great! What product did you use for waterproofing the FC?

Thanks Markusu!

I used the silicone based conformal coating. Seems to work perfectly. It's kinda like clear nail polish that you can solder through later.

I've wrecked this thing into snow like 20 times now, and I just blow off the snow and get back in the air. So far so good!

You must have been very careful to set it down in the snow like that :) It does make for a nice backdrop though.

It's made for the snow buddy! These pics were taken after an afternoon of bashing this thing into snow piles and trees

Looking pretty pristine for a post-bashing session.

Not so many full-on tree strikes. More like hitting little ghost branches and falling out of the sky. Luckily, snow is soft and clean :)

Currently on sale for $99, EV100 at Banggood The much anticipated Eachine EV100 headset has finally arrived! Opinions have been quite polarized and unless you've never flown FPV before you're likely to find fault in the field of view (FOV). I've tried a number of headsets and have to admit that I've been spoiled by the FatShark HD2 and HD3 goggles. That being said this is nowhere near that price bracket, so I'd like to compare the EV100 to a few headsets around the same price. Keep in mind that these cost $100 when they were released, so the current $159 price is likely to come down. EV100 vs the Competition I've been a long supporter of the Eachine EV800. It's a great headset for the price (~$55). Feature for feature it's the most comparable headset to the EV100. Both include a keep reading..
