This is my second brushless build. I was looking for a micro that could be flown both inside and outside, while also looking nice. When the Hoverbot came out I was immediately enchanted by how clean and cute it looked. I had several of the parts already lying around (like the tx03) so I got the rest of the bits from Banggood, including two colors of motor.

The build went surprisingly smoothly, given the size of the quad. I had a tussle with the rx - apparently this one doesn't send back telemetry, and my sbus jumper had desoldered itself, so I thought I wasn't correctly binding. But once I resolved that issue and added dental floss to the props, it flies well!

Final weight with battery was 72g. The battery is about 19g on its own.

I'm very happy with it (and happy to be finally done!)

Is that camera any good and isnt it a bit heavy compared to the others on the market ATM such as this http://www.banggood.com/CM275T-5_8G-25mW-48CH-NTSCPAL-Mini-VTX-600TVL-FPV-Camera-for-DIY-Micro-FPV-Racer-p-1102464.html?rmmds=cart

How well do those props fit on the racerstars? I'm getting mixed messages from people. I've heard people say the shaft is too small so the props are loose and I've heard that the props are very tight on the shafts. Have you ran into any issues?

ive had a few fly of these fly off but they dont come with screws and the holes are bigger than m2 possibly m2.5 which i have any of :(

Save 15% with coupon PaypalBG15% on the 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 keep reading..
