Hello!

I've been wanting to build an extra small brushless quad for a while now, but it's just been too expensive. As it turns out, I just needed to look a little smaller. This frame is awesome (though a little frustrating to take apart). Because of it's size and bumpers, it reminds me of a Tiny Whoop without the lack of power.

Enjoy the build!

Looks great! How difficult was it to solder all those tiny wires?

Thanks! It actually the soldering itself wasn't much of an issue (except on those tiny motors wires where I had to scrape off the enamel and stuff), it was mostly just getting the wires to fit. I ended up having to de/resolder the wires one each ESC so they could press up closer to the corners of the stack. Things really start to get crowded when you go this small

The enamel sucks! I'm going to upgrade to some DYS motors sooooon. 10000kv whoooo!

How are those props btw

Yeah it was a pain to make sure I didn't accidentally cut the wire itself. The props give me plenty of power but they are pretty loud, I'm looking forward to printing a cutter so I can try out the apparently quieter cut down ones.

Have fun with your motors! Amazing how brushless is able to compete with brushed now in terms of size

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..

Currently on sale for $97, 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..
