Build in progress... Parts picked by features, the color pink, looks, quality and whatever was more expensive :-D. Especially the motors that are actually priced in € and not $, at €149 a set. :-| Hopefully it will fly OK...

The frame is from Armattan! Lifetime warranty included.

I'm building two of these. ;-)

Update: It flies great!
Also I did some tricky slomo IG video on spinning EgoDrift motors ;-) The build quality is pristine!

What heat braid did you use to cover the wires? It looks a lot nicer than the stuff I've been using!

It is paracord 550 4mm thick. A little bit of a tight fit around the solder joints when extending motor wires. I'm using 20awg cable and thin heatshrink around those joints and some black heatshrink to hold it in place as you can se. Next time I will probably go for 5mm or 6mm. I bought about 16meters though so realistically I'm stuck with these for quite a while ;-)

Paracord is a great shout, think I'll go 5mm and see! Gorgeous build too! Cheers

Let us know how you get on with those motors .

They are smooth :-) And I'm happy with them. I haven't got so much to compare them with though since every other motor I have tested where with different everything and also different specs, so can't help you much more, sorry. :-)

Can you give some details how you connected the 4-in-1 ESC's to the Betaflight F3 flight controller? I'm having doubt using 4 seperate ESC's or using a 4-in-1 solution. Heard somewhere in Joshua Bardwell's reviews from the BFF3 board that it's not really beneficial in combination with a 4-in-1 ESC solution due to losing some voltage or amp reading in your OSD? I'm curious how you wired everything up, if you could add some photo's for detail that would be awesome. Thanks!

Yeah the only thing i felt with this combo of BFF3 and 4-in-1 is that I don't get to use the current sensor (CS) since it needs to be in-line with the power from the LiPo to the ESCs. And to get the full amps thru the BFF3 I would need to solder a harness of powercables from each ESC pad down to the 4-in-1 bat pads. I've never really used a CS so I don't miss it as much. I have noticed that there is 4-in-1ESC:s with builtin CS:s available. I would check those out before this Racerstar one. The DYS F4 also looks like a nice alternative to the BFF3 on the basic specs at least. But as always in this hobby you must eventually pull the trigger and get something flying ;) So this i what I got and and I am happy to say that this machine is finally up in the air as of today and it flies beutifully :-)

The ThinkTank FPV Airport Helipak is the premier travel bag for FPV enthusiasts. I've taken this bag across the country and around the world, and I really can't imagine a better pack for the job. It's huge. It's the size of a carry-on luggage, and it's designed specifically for FPV. It offers customizable compartments that can store a handful of quads, a transmitter or two, a couple sets of goggles, batteries, tools, props and a laptop. If you're feeling lazy you can even pack a couple quads without removing the props. You'll never find yourself saying, "I wish my bag was bigger." Build Quality This is a nice bag. It offers enough padding to securely carry all your FPV gear. The exterior padding is quite thick and rigid. I feel safe packing my goggles and transmitter without any additional keep reading..

The EV100 Micro AV Recorder is a DVR for the Eachine EV100 headset. Eachine should have built this into the headset, but here we are. It's about the size of a matchbook and works quite well despite a short learning curve. It's powered by the same battery included with the EV100 and uses the white balance lead. Other than that you can use either of the included 2.5mm to 3.5mm cables to plug it into the video input/output port of the EV100. You can either strap it beside the battery in the headstrap or use the included double sided tape to mount it to the top of the goggles. Vs the Eachine ProDVR This is obviously a repurposed Eachine ProDVR, but it does simplify the design. The ProDVR has different pins for each input and output. In fact the entire side of the unit is dedicated to various keep reading..
