[if you are building this, the antenna ear protectors are on backwards in the pictures below, make sure they are pointing the right way or they won't protect much :-) ]

Decided to build Banggood's doinker/halo micro brushless clone. The BNF isn't available yet, but all the parts and frame are, so I gave it a shot. Relatively smooth and painless build, but the cam/vtx combo will require some alternative mounting solution because the included two-sided tape was no good. Also, this is far from the lightest design for a 90mm brushless, so if weight is your concern look elsewhere. Otherwise this seems to be a pretty good, sturdy 2S backyard basher.

How does it perform? Do you feel like it has enough punch to recover from flips and rolls?

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..
