First few pictures are the parts and their weight.

I started by rounding off the edges of the frame, really wish mfg did that from factory, would gladly pay a couple extra bucks for it. I also apply a thin coat of CA all around the edges to help with delamination from impact.

I modified the XSR to have a 1/4 wave length just like the D4Rs and then removed the connector and soldered it directly on the KISS AIO and double taped it under the FC.

The frame assembly was pretty straight forward, very simple stack with these components

The next part was very tedious as the motor wires were too short and I had to prep and solder extra lengths, #paininthebutt. I also added a picture after redoing my FC soft mounting using longer screws.

I mounted my xsr antennas using a mix of vertical post and arm mounting, should work fine.

The FPV pod is super clean and it's the only couple wires of the build so I just need to plug it into the KISS AIO for power and vtx control over serial.

The the final weight in at 237.5g and 350.5g with a 900mAh 4S

I currently have the Kiss CC in my Xhover and looking into adding Hyperlite 2204 Floss Series 2522KV.. do you think it can handle these motors? If I'm correct the total weight with props will be less than 200g. I'm currently sitting at 211g with brother hobby R2 motors.

How is the durability of this frame?

Had some amazing flights this week end. As expected it is a racing beast but what got me the most was how good it felt freestyling. Motors are super good, never once got warm and held up to sime decent head on tree crashes!! 100% my fav racing setup and it would be godly for freestyle if it could carry a session and keep that slim weight

How are those motors?

Do you think it is because those motors say they're rated for 2-3S batteries and you're running a 4s?

Whiffles   Mar 22, 2017 

I'm not sure that would be an issue. Most motors can handle 4S.

Nice build. .. If you don't mind me asking, what problems are you having with tuning?

How is the linear whip antenna? I have one ready for my next build and hope it performs well enough for everyday flying!.

Been using one on my 3 inch and have really good range on it, for racing it should be just fine

I've been using the VTX03 lately and I'm quite impressed with the signal from such a tiny antenna.

This is the exact setup i wanted to do!!!! I was also wondering about those motors...

There are also the piroflip motors:
About the same weight, they look like the ticket as well ;)

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..
